Heads up: "Mockingjay" (The Hunger Games Trilogy, Book 3) Book Launch

Found out about this via my Goodreads group. I haven't read any of the Hunger Games books (unless you count the few pages I browsed at a Fully Booked branch recently), but I support the idea of this launch.

I love that these books have enough of a fan base for a party. And that they're really excited about it. I wish them a great fandomy time. :)

Filipinos on my reading list

This year is shaping up to be the year of the Filipino author, at least as far as my reading list is concerned.

So far I've read...
Marla Miniano: Every Girl's Guide to Flings and Table for Two
Melissa Dela Cruz: Blue Bloods and Masquerade
Vince O. Teves: Getting Over Andrea and The Wedding
Miguel Syjuco: Ilustrado
Andrea Pasion: Have Baby, Will Date
Maya O. Calica: Undercover Tai Tai
Claire Betita: No Boyfriend Since Birth

The cool thing is that not all of them are locally published, and not all are necessarily "Pinoy" in subject matter either.
