What's Cool? Summer!

What's Cool? is an anytime meme where I feature all the Cool things I got, happened, or blog news.

Yay for my comeback, yay for summer!

Your summer might have just started, but in my country, it has ended and everyone's back in school. Except for me. Technically, this is just the start of my summer vacation. I spent April and May reviewing and preparing for my board exams and now I'm currently having a blast with my books while looking for a job. Wish me luck! :D

So because I've been off for a month, I haven't shared my Cool news and book hauls to you until the four or five books turned into huge pile. Ready?

  • Life of a Blogger

I'm joining a new Cool meme called Life of a Blogger. Here, you can learn more about me outside blogging. I decided to join this meme because I've been posting book-related posts and no personal one. Plus, the topics are so interesting! Don't forget to comment your link (if you also joined) or answers so I'd get to know more about you too! Hosted by Novel Heartbeat, Life of a Blogger is scheduled to post on Thursdays. Check out my first ever Life of a Blogger post on Thursday!

  • Book signing events!
National Bookstore is doing it again--being awesome by bringing us amazing authors in our land! 

Jenny Han, the author of Summer series (which I loved), Burn for Burn series, and To All the Boys I've Loved Before (one of my most-awaited books in 2014) will visit Manila for a book signing event! Be at NBS Glorietta 1 on June 21st, 2 pm, or if you're from Cebu on June 22nd, 2 pm, at NBS SM Cebu. This might be helpful if you have questions.

But wait, there's more!

Stephanie Perkins is also invading Manila and Cebu!!!!!!! Oh God, I've been waiting for this forever! *Etienne St. Clair feels!* Hopefully my [future] schedule aligns with the date of event. Stephanie will be at NBS SM Cebu first on July 5th, 1 pm. Then she'll be on NBS Glorietta 1 on July 6th, 2 pm. FAQs here

If you have questions that aren't on the FAQs, don't hesitate to tweet or message NBS on Twitter or Facebook! Now my question is...will I see you there? ;)
