Hi there, book-loving humans!
Luckily, April was not as uneventful as March so I have several things to talk about in today’s wrap-up!
Last April 28, I attended April Feels Day 2018 with my girls Kate from The Backwards Bookshelf and Shealea from That Bookshelf Bitch.
I realized just now, should I change my blog name to something with a ‘Bookshelf’ in it?? Hahaha. Okay, sorry, back to the main topic. Although this is the first #romanceclass event that I attended, I actually attempted to go the Feels Day at UP Town Center last year to buy some books but chickened out the very last minute. I was overwhelmed by fact that there were too many people and I don’t know anyone there. Oh well, regrets.
Anyway, April Feels Day 2018 is such a wonderful experience!! I met people that I just usually see and sometimes interact with online like Fay, JM and Inah. Everyone is so friendly and welcoming even to new faces like me.
I also saw some my favorite #romanceclass authors Six de los Reyes (I loved Beginner’s Guide: Guide to Love and Other Chemical Reactions), Tara Frejas (author of Like Nobody’s Watching), and Celestine Trinidad (author of Ghost of a Feeling and Missing Bodies). Funny though, these are the #romanceclass titles I love the most but I haven’t written a review for any of them yet. Huhu. I was internally fangirling the whole time because I was too shy, but it’s like watching my own personal heroes come to life in front of me. They’re real, they’re alive!
Unfortunately, I was not able to hear the live readings clearly because the sound system has problems and we were at the far back of the venue. Thank you to the angel who posted the videos, though, I will binge watch them all later!
Lastly, I bought stuff!
I’m on a book buying ban, I know. I. AM. NOT. PROUD. But who can say no to these books and these cute little stickers??? I got The Queen’s Game by Carla de Guzman, Love at First Run by Angel C. Aquino (highly recommended by Kate, btw), the cute quote bookmark based on Ghost of a Feeling by Celestine Trinidad and those mumu (ghost) stickers that are too adorable!
