Best of 2014!

Hi there 2015!
2014 was a great year for Book Whales. I was able to meet and greet International authors and personally interviewed them. I went to about 6 signings in total. Every month there will be an author and sometimes authors! Though, I have some "absent in class" moments to some events but that didn't stop me from not getting my books signed. Special thanks to Precious, Louisse, Leslie and Jesselle for adopting by books.

Here are my fangirl moments! Thanks to National Book Store.
 I was part of the Dark Caravan Blog Tour. Book Whales will be included for the Exquisite Captive paperback. Thanks to Heather Demetrios and HarperCollins. 
Then meeting Sarah of HarperCollins! Not only did she visited us in the Philippines; she prepared games and showcased the upcoming Winter 2015 books. 

Finally, my greatest achievement is gaining more friends from the blogger community. The ladies of Pinoy Book Tours! The huge part of me excitement during the signing events is meeting them.

My New Year's resolution is to be more active this 2015. Despite my work as a nurse, blogging and reading is my anti-stress. I will be be more present in the blogging community. I am also looking forward to the upcoming signings. Who's next? Ohhhhh I can't wait.
There you go! It's not much of a highlight and I bet you have more interesting experience. Don't forget to comment and share it with us.

My To-Read Books this 2015 (Part 2)

I was checking Goodreads and found my Part-2 of My To-Read list this 2015.
I simply typed "Ya 2015" and clicked listopia. I found a list with 726 books on it. I was like a kid in a candy store! Knowing that I won't be bale to eat all the candies, but some had caught my eye.

I greatly admire the people who made the list. I mean how will you able to cope with so many books coming this year? It's a sea of books!

Usually, I judge books by their covers. But now, I painstakingly checked each one and read the blurb. It took me 3 days to absorb each summary. I came up with my most anticipated ones.

Check them out

The Wrong Side of Right by Jenn Marie Thorne
Set against a backdrop of politics, family, and first love, this is a story of personal responsibility, complicated romance, and trying to discover who you are even as everyone tells you who you should be.
