|Books Out Of The Bookshelves|
When I started blogging last March of this year. I wasn't quite sure if I can manage a blog full time. I mean, I was really busy way back then looking for a job. But in the end, I kinda enjoyed blogging and before I knew it, I was posting book reviews and articles and I was really loving it! I can share my thoughts about a book to others! But most importantly, I'm doing this for myself... I also learned that there are loads of other bloggers around the world! And I've seen lots of blog sites that are really cool! I was very interested in one particular blogger from Brazil. Her name is Raila Soares and her books are very different from what I'm reading, I find her books refreshing and invigorating. Maybe because she's still young and she prefers YA books. (Of course!) Hehehe. But the funny thing for me is that I like the books that she's reading. The stories are really engaging.
|Me with the book|
Little did I know that she emailed Tess and told my story! I was really shocked she would do anything for me, a total stranger at that time. And then I've learned that she requested a copy of Ice Cold especially for me! I can't believe it!!! I just really can't! And then one day, I received a mail notice that I need to claim a package at the post office. After retrieving the package, I immediately opened it and there in my hands, was a brand new hardbound copy of Ice Cold, with a dedication from Tess Gerritsen herself. Her personal hand writing! I was speechless for a minute, and after the shock wore off I called my sister, my favorite cousin and my parents and told them what has transpired. I was elated during those moments of disbelief. It's always been a dream of mine to receive a book from any of my favorite authors. And it came true... This post is especially dedicated to Tess Gerritsen and Raila Soares. I want you to know how grateful I am for this gift. I appreciate the time you spent for this book to reach me. GOD bless and thanks so much!
