xmassmileyAs for me, I’m gonna play Christmas Elf this year and bring you some gifts!

Snapshots: Love before first sight

 
I finished reading Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl last week. It’s the Book of the Month of The Mysterious Reading Society, a private Goodreads reading group that I’m in with a few real-life friends.

We agreed not to post (spoiler-y) comments before we meet for our book discussion, but since it’s my Book Hamster who had something to say about a particular passage, maybe this doesn’t count? *adopts innocent look*

Did the Dazed Hamster say “cue Savage Garden”?

I’ve added 2 more books to my Book Collection gallery here on the blog:

"Makamisa" signed by Ambeth Ocampo


 
We met the legendary Ambeth Ocampo during his signing session at the 2011 Manila International Book Fair. I’m excited to finally get a copy of this book after seeing the actual manuscript of Makamisa at the José Rizal memorabilia exhibit at the National Museum during the “Rizal at 150” celebration a few months ago.
 

"Moondogs" signed by Alexander Yates


 
Alexander Yates was here in the Philippines during the 2011 Manila International Book Fair as well. I didn’t have the moolah to purchase a copy of his book back then, so I joined the giveaway at RonReads.com. I won! 😉

p.s. Apologies for the quality of the photos; I only have a phone camera. 😀
