Nominations are now open for the 1st Filipino Readers’ Choice Awards. Initiated by Filipino Book Bloggers (of which I’m a member), the RCA aims to “develop awareness and appreciation of Philippine literature; recognize the reader’s role in creating the meaning and experience of a literary work; and give the readers a voice in the Philippine book industry.” The awards will be handed out during the 2nd Filipino ReaderCon on August 18th.

And on July 21st, the awesome folks behind the equally awesome local YA magazine, Kwentillion, will hold the 1st Kwentillion Young Adult Readers Carnival.
Whether you’re an actual young adult or someone who just feels like it but who appreciates the genre, this is going to be a super fun event! For more information, click here.
See you there!
