I think this may be the most epic event yet for our little country. Three awesome authors in one day, and I will surely make sure not to miss it! To my foreigner friends, I’m sorry but this is for the Philippines only. Although I gather that a couple of you have already met them in the past. I, on the other hand, would meet them for the first time and I am freakin’ excited.

Title: Camp Boyfriend
Author: J.K. Rock
Publication Date: July 2, 2013
Publisher: Spencer Hill Contemporary
Series: Camp Boyfriend #1
Format: ebook
Acquisition: Netgalley / Spencer Hill Contemporary

The summer of her dreams is about to get a reality check.
They said it couldn’t be done, but geeky sophomore Lauren Carlson transformed herself into a popular girl after moving to a new school halfway across the country. Amazing what losing her braces and going out for cheerleading will do. Only trouble is, the popular crowd is wearing on Lauren’s nerves and she can’t wait to return to summer camp where she’s valued for her brain instead of her handsprings. She misses her old friends and most of all, her long time camp-only boyfriend, Seth. This year she intends to upgrade their relationship to year-round status once she’s broken up with her new, jock boyfriend, Matt. He doesn’t even begin to know the real her, a girl fascinated by the night sky who dreams of discovering new planets and galaxies.
But Matt isn’t giving her up without a fight. As he makes his case to stay together, Lauren begins to realize his feelings run deeper than she ever would have guessed. What if the guy she thought she was meant to be with forever isn’t really The One? Returning to Camp Juniper Point was supposed to ground her uprooted life, but she’s more adrift than ever. Everything feels different and soon Lauren’s friends are turning on her and both guys question what she really wants. As summer tensions escalate, Lauren wonders if she’s changed more than she thought. Will her first big discovery be herself?

Title: The Geography of You and Me
Author: Jennifer E. Smith
Publisher: Headline | Poppy
Date of Publication: April 10, 2014 | April 15, 2014
Genre: contemporary YA romance
Acquisition: borrowed from Pinoy Book Tours

Lucy and Owen meet somewhere between the tenth and eleventh floors of a New York City apartment building, on an elevator rendered useless by a citywide blackout. After they’re rescued, they spend a single night together, wandering the darkened streets and marveling at the rare appearance of stars above Manhattan. But once the power is restored, so is reality. Lucy soon moves to Edinburgh with her parents, while Owen heads out west with his father.
Lucy and Owen’s relationship plays out across the globe as they stay in touch through postcards, occasional e-mails, and — finally — a reunion in the city where they first met.
A carefully charted map of a long-distance relationship, Jennifer E. Smith’s new novel shows that the center of the world isn’t necessarily a place. It can be a person, too.

Epic Recs: April 2014

This completely slipped my mind and I forgot to post about this early in the month. But anyway. This is my fifth (FIFTH!) Epic Recs month with Sandra @ Sandra’s World of Books. We’ve been doing this for almost half a year. Wow.

If you want to know more about Epic Recs, just click on the banner up there(it’s linked to the December post though so you might want to search for the most recent one). The basic gist is that we push each other to read a book this month. But basically, we’re just enabling each other’s book-buying addiction. Haha!

#TacklingTheShelves and #ARCApril

I was supposed to hold an event, but then a couple of bloggers I follow already up some so I’ll just join theirs! :D

Tackling the Shelves

Click on the banner to find out more about the read-a-thon! I’m not really sure how active I could be for this one, but I’m joining anyway to support my good friend, Sandra. :D

arc-april

Click on the button to find out more. I’ve been waiting for this event, because I seriously need this. I have so many review copies I need to tackle.

Anyway, for both events, these are the books I plan to read and review:

IMG_20140331_232341

This is actually the notes on my tablet. All the review copies are there already so it was just easier to take a picture. XD Do you see my really big problem? I have that much to read and review. I separated the Contemporary from the Paranormal/SciFi/etc. because contemp are my happy reads (usually anyway). I already read The Geography of You and Me (hence the line), but I have yet to write the review so it’s there. :P

That’s all for now.
