Some Fine Day by Kat Ross (Giveaway)

Book Description: 
Expected publication: February 17th 2015 by Skyscape
 A generation ago, continent-sized storms called hypercanes caused the Earth to flood. The survivors were forced to retreat deep underground and build a new society.

This is the story that sixteen-year-old Jansin Nordqvist has heard all of her life. Jansin grew up in a civilization far below the Earth’s surface. She’s spent the last eight years in military intelligence training. So when her parents  surprise her with a coveted yet treacherous trip above ground, she’s prepared for anything. She’s especially thrilled to feel the fresh air, see the sun, and view the wide-open skies and the ocean for herself.
 But when raiders attack Jansin’s camp and take her prisoner, she is forced to question everything she’s been taught. What do her captors want? How will she get back underground? And if she ever does, will she want to stay after learning the truth?

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.
