Blog Tour: The Dragon Warrior

I write this review for my cousin, who died due to disease last week. She was so young, so full of dreams. She was a warrior until the end. And I think she will like this book.

May her soul find peace.


I got another chance to review and be part of the book tour hosted by Caffeine Book Tours. I must say I am very excited to read Katie Zhao’s debut novel. I am part Chinese but my family did not wholly embrace the culture. I am sad that I was not able to learn the language (you must know I really love learning languages).

For more information about the tour and the bloggers who were part of this wonderful promotion, check out this post by Shealea.

List: Books on Philippine Myths and Monsters

 

I read Neil Gaiman and he is one of the authors I admire. I really like the Sandman series and got a Death Funko Pop because I really like the character. Imagine my surprise on the morning of 8th of August when my feed had this Twitter update from him:

Here are the signed pages of my books done during the book signing at Adarna House’s Booth at the Manila International Book Fair last September 20, 2015. This is my first time to attend a book signing so I was amazed that authors will take time to write messages on top of their signatures.
