National Bookstore’s Book Blowout

Bookstore sales and secondhand bookstores are one of the most beautiful things on earth for a bookworm like me, and one of the leading bookstores in the Philippines just announced that they will hold their annual book blowout event in all of their Metro Manila branches!

I’ve seen a lot of awesome titles being posted around the web by my fellow bookworms. As for me, I don’t plan on buying any new books as I haven’t read most of the books I bought and received in the past couple of months, but when my boyfriend and I visited NBS’s Greenbelt 1 branch, I just couldn’t resist. I mean, these books are so cheap, I just needed to get them!

So to be fair with my TBR pile (and my wallet), I limited myself to getting just three books and here they are:

  1. When Dimple Met Rishi by Sandhya Menon
  2. Two Roads From Here by Teddy Steinkellner
  3. The Night Diary by Veera Hiranandani

When Dimple Met Rishi is one of the titles that I’ve been eager to get a copy of even before it was released but I just didn’t get around to buying it. I remember trying to reserve a copy for myself, but it was always out of stock at the time and then I just forgot about it all together. So when I saw that it was included in the sale, I immediately grabbed the opportunity to get it in a much cheaper price. Aside from its cover being so cute and millenial-ish, the synopsis also caught my attention. I can’t wait to finally read it!

Two Roads From Here instantly made it on my list of books to buy from the sale the moment I read the synopsis because it reminded me so much of all the books I used to read all those summer breaks ago.

The last one on my list, The Night Diary, is for my cousin who loves reading books that are written in the style of diary entries or letters. She’s also into historical fiction, so I think this is perfect for her taste in books.

National Bookstore’s book blowout sale ends on October 31st! So if you’re looking for an excuse to buy new books, this is probably it.
