Event Recap #24: Interview with Pierce Brown and The 2017 Philippine Readers and Writers Festival

BFR (2)

To say that the previous week has been one of the bests for me would probably be a huge understatement because just last week, not only was I invited to be a panelist for National Book Store’s 2017 Philippines Readers and Writers Festival, but I was also fortunate enough to be invited to casually interview one of my literary heroes, Pierce Brown, for a post on Book Freak Revelations. I’m hoping those who weren’t able to attend the 3-day long event could live vicariously through this recap.

With shades of The Hunger Games, Ender’s Game, and Game of Thrones, debut author Pierce Brown’s genre-defying epic Red Rising hit the ground running and wasted no time becoming a sensation.

Golden Son continues the stunning saga of Darrow, a rebel forged by tragedy, battling to lead his oppressed people to freedom from the overlords of a brutal elitist future built on lies. Now fully embedded among the Gold ruling class, Darrow continues his work to bring down Society from within.

A life-or-death tale of vengeance with an unforgettable hero at its heart, Golden Son guarantees Pierce Brown’s continuing status as one of fiction’s most exciting new voices.

[Stacking The Shelves #12] 2016’s 1st Quarter Bookhaul

Processed with MOLDIV

Okay, I confess. Months have passed and I have failed to post any book haul posts here on Book Freak Revelations, nor on my bookstagram account. Other than the time constraint I have on me right now, I really don’t have that much of a book budget right now. Having an internship contract at the commercial center of the Metro isn’t really a cheap walk in the park, if I’m being honest, so it took me about 2 months to draft my next Stacking the Shelves post. And have I mentioned how much I missed hauling books? I MISSED IT SO BLOODYDAMN MUCH!

If there’s one bookish event that I would gladly make time for out of my intense schedule, that would be this year’s “Love-A-Thon”. Hosted by 4 lovely women, it aims to spread the love for books all over the world.

Now, to show just how excited I am to be a participant for this lovely activity, I’m sharing with everyone some of my answers to the questionnaire that the hosts sent me. This is to not only share whatever I can to this activity, but also to help my readers and other participants to get to know me more. Most of you guys know me because of the way I write my posts and reviews. Tonight, I’m proud to share some facts that only a few people know about. Let’s get this party started!
