Jennifer Niven Book Signing Event

I arrived in SM Megamall at around 6am and I met up with my twitter friends. I had so much fun waiting with them because we talked about a lot of bookish stuff that made the waiting bareable.

They let us in for the registration early, around 9am and the event started around two pm. I almost cried because all of the emotions from reading All the Bright Places came back to me when Jennifer Niven arrived at the event and I'm not the only one. I think it was an emotional day for everyone due to the All the Bright Places being a relatable and exceptionally sad book. Also, it was so sorrowful when Jennifer talked about her inspiration for this book because this situation happened to her and a boy she loved. To add, I love how she made the book more personal and real by creating the aspects of the book into a reality just like the Germ Magazine and http://www.eleanorandviolet.com.

In the end, meeting Jennifer was a surreal experience because All the Bright Places was one of the book that really made an impact in my life and it made me realize a lot of things about myself that I didn't know before. She was so nice and sincere. I'm just thankful that she creates books that deals with a lot of social issues that are not normally tackled, and I cannot wait for her next book Holding Up The Universe because the female protagonist is plus size and I haven't encountered a lot of young adult female characters that are on the bigger side, so it is a nice change. 
Almost there...

I'm so happy !!!!!

With the beautiful Jennifer Niven

  1. I would like to check out a few of these. I am not big on romantic stuff, but I’d like to give “The Statistical Probability of a Love at First Sight” by Jennifer E. Smith, a try. I am meeting a few friends for party in one of the event space NYC has. Maybe I’ll ask them for a recommendation!
