March 6, 2016 | National Book Store Glorietta 1 – Filipino Readers are excited Ms. Victoria Aveyard, she’s the author of Red Queen, Cruel Crown (novella) and her latest novel, Glass Sword. It’s pretty crowded when I arrived around 9 am [I’m 531 of 1200 participants. Yes! The event is really packed.]. Thank you National Book Store for hosting the event.
After the registration and while waiting, I met my Book Girlfriends, Ate Elaine, CeeBee, and Ate April. It’s nice to meet new fellow readers: Mitch and Cyril.:)
While on queue, I met these lovely ladies: Soleil, Julie and Kim. photo credits to Soleil 😀
Also I met other bookstagrammers and readers Pam of @phamtasticreads, Rechellyn of @infinitetbrlist, Ate Leigh, and Kristine 🙂 I don’t have pictures with them though. 🙂 I also see some familiar faces.
Since I wasn’t able to record a video of the actual interview because the crowd is so wild they blocked my view and they are SCREAMING. [No chill. They are all Team Maven and I’m Team Cal. 😛 ]. I tried watching via their phone screens but I can’t see a thing because I forgot my damn glasses. Here’s a video of Victoria Aveyard’s Q&A from the Blogger’s forum held at Powerbooks.

I have to share this amazing piece while waiting for my books to get signed. Mr. Jun Ayalde is sketching Victoria Aveyard and I can’t help watching it. It’s a beautiful sketch and he only uses gel ink pens for this. Kudos to you sir! [I got his name thru Debbie @booksandtealeaf]
Here’s my moment with Victoria Aveyard! (She’s really exhausted for signing a lot of books but still pretty ❤ :)). Our conversation is more of “Hi” and “Hello. Nice to meet you.” mehehe. Also, I forgot what I’m going to say to her because like I said, she’s really pretty. 😛
Here are my signed Red Queen & Glass Sword plus free Glass Sword bookmark. They’re not personalized but still worth it! Kudos to Debby of @booksandtealeaf as well for creating these beautiful bookmarks too. 🙂
That’s all folks! I’m looking forward on the future book signing events this year. Also to meet more bookworms. I’ll see you when I see you. 🙂
