National Book Store just announced via their twitter and FB Page that they will be bringing New York Times Bestselling author, Gayle Forman here in the Philippines for two book signing events. One in Manila and another one in Cebu. When I saw from my twitter timeline the announcement, I just have to focus and read it again and again to make sure about the news, while thinking, I need to be at the front row of her Manila event. I’m so happy that finally NBS is bringing one of my favorite author. If you’ve read my review of If I Stay you know that I love that series so much! I’ve been pushing those books to my friends and to anyone since the first time I read the series. Every time someone asked me for contemporary read recommendations, If I Stay, and Where She Went are my top picks. I love and adore Mia and Adam’s story. I cried a bucket of tears reading and rereading them. So meeting the genius behind those powerful books will be a great experience for sure.
Ok, so before I ramble too much about my excitement, here are some important details about the book signing that I think everyone interested to go should know:
