Night before the book signing, I can't sleep because of excitement. I've been waiting for Marie Lu's book signing since the news came out. Legend trilogy is definitely one of the best dystopia trilogies I've ever read and praises to Ms. Lu's writing style and creativity. I know I should not miss this day.
November 23,2014 - Sunday. Waking up early and arriving at Glorietta around 8 am, I am shocked how long the line is. I have to go around 2 corners of Glorietta to fall in line. IT WAS REALLY A LONG LINE. After the registration, with my BookGfs, Rhyzza and Jane, and I decided to watch Mockingjay part 1 while waiting. (I'll write my movie reaction soon, together with the If I Stay).
The event was overwhelming and filled with screams of joy when Marie Lu appeared. I tried taking pictures of her, but the crowd was really crazy and wild.. (If I just have a ladder, I swear I'll use it. Just to capture a clear picture of Marie Lu.)She is one of the loveliest authors I've met and she is pretty cool! With tattoos, the way she answered questions, talking about her books, Legend being a film soon, sequel to The Young Elites etc. It was exhausting, but definitely worth it. Meeting up with the Book Girlfriends PH, Instagrammers, Book Bloggers, Goodreads friends. Some I missed but for sure I'll see them in the future book signing events.
