(let the pictures tell my super fun experience on my 3rd book signing event!)
Registration is at 3pm. I was there before 2pm. Early bird catches the worm, right?
see, registration is still empty. because i. am. early.
my view from where i sat. pretty, pretty close!
Another good friend of mine, Kwesi of Sweet Reads, together with his classmate and her sister. Converts? 😛
Okay, so I’m not officially a fan of TM when I went here (Janus asked me if I want to come at the book signing event, she was the official fan), but when two YA authors are just a breath away from you, who wouldn’t go gaga?!!!
That’s Ransom Riggs and Tahereh Mafi. 🙂
Ransom asked me and Celina how early we got there, and I said 2 hours before the event. He was like, “Really?” I was starstruck, because throughout the event, he was so, so cool.
I even asked him later that day:
M: So you’re name is really Ransom?
R: Yeah, my name is really Ransom.
M: Right. Just checking. Thank you!
Rock on, Ransom!
TM was officially introduced to us, and what an awesome girl! She made me laugh every single time she opens her mouth. smart-ass. *winks*
And I love her dress, so summer!
I was the first in line for the book signing, woot!
That’s Kwesi, who’s No. 2 =)
And Celina, No. 3!
I got no shot of Janus when her book was signed. Now why is that?… Right, she’s No. 109 >>> and we are all so hungry by that time! Thus, no picture on my camera. Hahaha!
You’d think I will get tired of going to this kind of events, but no. It was something for us, Filipinos!
Rarely do authors (much less YA authors!) come here in Manila. So just imagine us readers going googly-eyed when we finally caught sight of them. 😀
I don’t want to fangirl, because I only liked Shatter Me a little bit. But when I get to meet Tahereh, who is so warm and funny and awesome, I cannot help but… yeah, fangirl. Ha!
How cool is that!
