Even if I’m already working, I’m (almost) always ready to attend bookish events. Some would consider me a social butterfly (a bookish one, that is) just because I really love spending time with my friends, both old and new, bonding over books at signing events or just plain coffee. I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Today, I’m sharing my weekend plans with everyone because the time has finally come for the annual Philippine Literary Festival, only this time it has a new name! National Book Store (the one and only host of the iconic event) decided to call it The Readers and Writers Festival! Fancy, right? Anyway, here are a few details about the event:

The Comment Challenge is hosted by Lonna @ FLYLēF and Alicia @ A Kernel of Nonsense and it aims to increase comment activity from it’s participants’ blogs and establish and encourage new relationships with other book bloggers, and reviewers. I, being one of those kinds of bloggers who LOVE getting comments and feedback from my readers love the idea of this challenge, not just because of the comment activity it could mean for me and Book Freak Revelations. So, at this point, I already want to thank Lonna and Alicia for letting me be a part of this challenge!

So, tonight, I wanted to share some great news for everyone. For the last few months, I have been working with some of the greatest people behind Christine Brae’s Philippine Street Team, which I also happen to be a part of, and we planned on hosting the Philippine Book Tour for Christine’s new NA book, “In This Life“. Christine is the incredibly talented US-based Filipino Author of The Light In The Wound, His Wounded Light, and Insipid. She graced our humbled country last September 2015 for a homecoming-slash-book signing event, and meeting her was one of the best moments of my 2015.
Now, I am more than excited to tell everyone that together with my good friend Rafael of The Royal Polar Bear Reads, and Christine Brae’s Philippine Street Team, I will be hosting the PH book tour for Christine’s forthcoming book, In This Life.
