Someone is a really happy kid. Just look at what was delivered to our doorstep last Friday afternoon!
Actually, I was not in the house when the package was delivered because I was still in my summer service program. But I asked about it as soon as I arrived, and boy how happy I was when I learned that the package came!
Janus Silang at Ang Tiyanak na Tabon by Edgar Calabia Samar. This is the first book in Janus Silang series and the first (I think) YA book of Adarna House, Inc. This is just the first book of the series, mind you.
Here’s a brief synopsis:
Sa tournament ng TALA Online sa bayan ng Balanga, namatay ang lahat ng manlalaro maliban kay Janus. Sunod-sunod pa ang naging kaso ng pagkamatay ng mga kabataan sa computer shops sai ba’t ibang panig ng bansa. Kinontak si Janus ng nagpakilalang Joey, isa rin umano sa mga nakaligtas sa paglalaro ng TALA na gaya niya. Hindi inasahan ni Janus ang mga matutuklasan niya mula rito na mag-uugnay sa kanya sa misteryo ng kinahuhumalingan niyang RPG—at sa alamat ng Tiyanak mula sa Tábon!
Thank you so much Adarna House for delivering this free copy for me and to Ate Biena for referring me to this. I’m really very excited to read this! And this is the second time that I received a free copy of a book because of my book blogging activities. Yay! Book blogging really has its awesome perks!
Anyway, there’s actually an ongoing blog tour this week to promote the book. Check the book tour schedule here. I wasn’t able to join the blog tour, unfortunately, but I love Sir Egay so much that I’m still promoting Janus Silang in my social media accounts. By the way, use the hashtag #JanusSilang, okay? 🙂 I’d be also reading it this week, so wait for my review in this blog.
By the way, there will be a book launch of Janus Silang book on May 10 at SM North, as well as book discussion with Pinoy Reads Pinoy Books (book club I’m a member of) on May 24. The author will appear on both events, so come and join us! It’ll be definitely fun! Janus Silang would be available in bookstores this May, but you could already add it in Goodreads.
