What's Cool? Tahereh + Surprises!

What's Cool? is an anytime meme created by yours truly wherein I share all the Cool things that happened/I got!

  • Surprises!
I'm so excited to share to you all my haul!

I'm really surprised to receive Pivot Point and The Madman's Daughter. I never got a reply from my contact, but one day, a box of HarperCollins arrived on our doorstep! Eeep! I'm also super excited to have Stormdancer and most especially, Scarlet. Thank God Scarlet didn't lost in the mail! I don't what I'll do if it did. O_O

  • Tahereh Mafi in Manila
Last Saturday, March 2nd, National Bookstore held a book signing event featuring Tahereh Mafi on Glorietta 1! The Cool thing? I got the chance to meet her--and get my book signed!

During the Q&A

The Q&A was so fun. Tahereh's so hilarious, and so are the fans. There was a time when she was asked about Warner and she's like, "The reaction about Warner was like the reaction to Justin Bieber. You'd scream like that if Beiber's here, right?". When asked about the title of the last book, she said it doesn't have yet. Then a fan called out: "Release Me!" And everyone laughed. Tahereh said she'll call it Untitle Me. XD

She was also asked whether there'll be a next e-novella, she asked the crowd who character they want to have an e-novella, lots of people voted for Adam and Kenji. But of course, there are still lots who wants more of Warner! ;) She said yes, there'll be a short story about one character that takes place in the second and third book...but she hadn't written it yet. XD So for now, keep calm, and wait for the announcements. Let's just hope there'll be! :D

Picture taking with a representative from NBS and..Ransom Riggs!
Yep, he was also there on the event, and NBS let the fans' copies of Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children signed, too!

I was thinking of buying a copy of his book but my wallet is crying out loud. XD Plus, the books are pretty sold out. Congratulations, guys!

The crowd

Me with Tahereh..and Ransom. :D
Excuse my face. I know I looked haggard. I'm number 194 and I waited for hours! XD

These photos are taken at the event. There's a Q&A earlier wherein Filipino book bloggers get a chance to ask her their questions! What's not Cool is that I didn't make it because I have classes. (Their [bloggers] books are personalized! So jelly!) But I'm so glad to have these(!):

My copies of Shatter Me and ARC of Unravel Me are now signed! :D
