First, my good friend Rafael, from The Royal Polar Bear Reads gave me The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa. Thanks as always, Raf! Hella generous fella! *virtual hug*
Second, my prize from a Twitter giveaway hosted Danielle L. Jensen, the author of one of my recent favorite high fantasy novel Stolen Songbird, has finally arrived after three epic months of waiting. But it’s all worth it! I got Hidden Huntress by Danielle L. Jensen, herself, the book 2 of the Malediction trilogy. It was signed, of course! And yep, so now, I have 2 copies of Hidden Huntress. And I dunno, might give the other one away if I won’t be able to sell it before the release of the final book.
Lastly, I won the freakin’ awesome #MyFaveBookMySelfie2015 contest on Instagram hosted by National Bookstore!!! Like, FINALLY!!! After several tries, it finally happened to me and I couldn’t be happier! What’s the prize? It’s PHP2500 (around $50) worth of gift certificate that can be used on any National Bookstore branches. (click HERE for the contest info.) And what’s more awesome was that during the time I won, it was the annual NBS Cut Price Sale. Yes, so they cut most (if not all) international novels 10%, 20% and up to 50% off!!! So I was soooo hyped to go get my prize and do helluva book shopping! Here are the books I bought using my gift certificate:
September is a book haul month for Filipino bookworms because of the consecutive dates of MIBF and the NBS Cut Price Sale. I love Septembers! *dance party*
