Reviewing Slump, the silence and 2016 + Giveaway!

Hi guys! It's been a while. It's been quiet around here. *looks around nervously* I know that it was a sudden hiatus on my part. I have been drafting reviews and posts several times a week but somehow, I just couldn't finish anything that I write. There's so much going on: work, the novel that I'm working on, and life in general. It didn't help that I was having a bad case of reviewing slump. I read several books these past few weeks - one after another - and yet I couldn't write about them. But today, I managed to finish one of the drafts I started two months ago. I see this as a sign to continue. That, and the fact that I'm organizing a blog event for next year.

Me, reading, anywhere, anytime

My dear friend, Michelle from The Escapist, who officially said goodbye to the blogging world, to focus on something much more important to her, hosted Celebrating Debutantes annually. She passed the blog event to me and I'm more than happy to continue it for her. I typically go for fresh talent, debut novels. So it's logical for me to celebrate debutantes.

It's gonna be my first blog event since the last wave of Dystopian Domination. I'm ecstatic since I will be organizing this with a close friend, Cai from Blackplume. Keep in touch for news on Celebrating Debutantes 2016!

Before you go, I have a surprise for you. Yes, you. I met Jennifer E. Smith, the most amazing contemporary author alive, earlier this year. If you're in the Philippines, if you haven't heard of her, want to read her books, or if you simply must have the signed hardcover of The Statistical Probability at First Sight, then you can join this giveaway. Update: the giveaway prizes are now: signed copy of The Statistical Probability of Love at First Sight by Jennifer E. Smith, The Wrath and the Dawn by Renee Ahdieh and a signed copy of Savor by Kate Evangelista. Open to residents of the Philippines this time around. (Sorry international peeps! I will whip up something for you soon.)
