Event Recap: The Philippine Readers & Writers Festival 2016



I have to say 2016 is fast becoming my Im’ma-table-flip-everything-and-be-spontaneous year. I mean, seriously guys, I am a walking planner and I never do things not in my calendar. But things are changing these days, and change is always good ๐Ÿ™‚

Attending the Philippine Readers & Writers Festival 2016 hosted byย National Bookstoreย is probably the last thing I thought I’d do in August since the November Bar Exams is fast approaching (only 2 months away!) and I knew I had to really focus on reviewing. I felt, though, that I needed (1) some sort of a reward for the past months that I have been toiling and (2) something to inspire me for the hell months ahead. So what better way to do it than be somewhere I haven’t been and do something I haven’t done ๐Ÿ™‚

Allie from A Literary Wanderer and I planned to go to the event together. We just recently knew each other from our newly created book club (#NALitLoversPH), and decided to finally meet up in real life and go to the event together! We also got to meet up with JM from Book Freak Revelationsย and everything was just so fun with JM around! I have met JM ย when I attended #BookwormsUnitePH 2016 and he was one of the hosts-slash-organizers. ๐Ÿ™‚ย I was so glad I got to go around Raffles with these two, and had real good fun during our lunch together! Couldn’t have asked for a better company! ๐Ÿ™‚

The Philippine Readers & Writers Festival is a 3-day event held at Raffles Hotel Makati. It is three days of book signings, discussions, and panels about books, literature, and culture from top Filipino writers and artists. I wanted to attend several discussions and panels but I was only able to go to one:ย Book Blogging 101: Growing Web and Social Media Presence to Promote Books and Literature
