Hello, my lovely bookish friends! It’s officially the start of “Ber” month. And here in the Philippines, once the first day of September officially falls, Filipinos start scouring their storage boxes for holiday season decorations and playing Christmas songs. For other countries, it’s probably Halloween that they’ll be most excited about, but since Halloween is not really big here, we’re immediately jumping to Christmas. And FYI, the celebration typically lasts until early March. LOL!
With this being said, I’m so happy to start my September with a new blog post! And since we’re talking about early Christmas in my country, I can consider this one as an early present as well. Not quite, but close enough!
I’m pretty sure that you’ve already heard that John Green is finally releasing a new book after nearly six years since the release of his last book (and extra popular book), The Fault In Our Stars. The title of the book is Turtles All the Way Down, and oh my gosh, just click the Goodreads button below so you can add it on your TBR!
The John Green Collection
And to prepare us (and our hearts) for John Green’s forthcoming publication, Penguin Random House is hosting a countdown read-along of his previous and most popular books until the release of Green’s latest book. Each week, join us as we buddy read one book, then join the Goodreads giveaway hosted by Penguin Random House.
Today, I am going to share an unboxing photos of The John Green Collection sent by Penguin Random House.
WARNING: Photo spam ahead!
This gorgeous boxed set of John Green collection came in a big Penguin Random House box! Boxception!
