In My Mailbox (21): Sales and Komikon

In My Mailbox is a weekly book meme hosted by Kristi from The Story Siren, where bloggers post about what books received that week, be it via  mailbox, library or store. I wasn’t expecting to write an In My Mailbox post this week, but three things happened:

And so, I ended up with these:

  1. The Song of the Quarkbest by Jasper Fforde (Fully Booked) – Aaron told me last week that this book was already available in Fully Booked, just on the same day I wrote a Want Books post about it. I had a copy transferred while making a personal deal with myself to catch up to quota before it arrived. And I just that. I cannot wait to read this. :D
  2. Till We Have Faces by C.S. Lewis (Fully Booked) – I borrowed a copy of this book from my friend RE early this year and I loved it. He told me that if I see a copy of this, I should grab it immediately. I saw one and grabbed one. :) I can reread this book anytime I want now, yay!
  3. Filipino Heroes League Book 1: Sticks and Stones by Paolo Fabregas(Komikon) – I already bought a copy of this months before which I lent to my brother and is currently missing. Anyway, yesterday I got to meet the author, Paolo Fabregas, at Komikon, so I bought another copy so he could sign it. And he remembered my review, too, so yay!

    My FHL copy signed by the author :)

  4. High Society by Paolo Chikiamco and Hannah Buena (Komikon) – Of course I had to get a copy of this, after reviewing it just recently. :) Dibs on a pretty special colored cover because of that review too. Thanks Pao! I had it signed by him, but not by Hannah because we don’t know how she looks like and so we weren’t able t “stalk” her during Komikon. :( Maybe next time, then. :)

  5. Tabi Po by Mervin Malonzo (Komikon) – We were hanging by the Flipside booth talking to Honey when she plugged this comic to us. It was the black and white version, and it seems pretty scary given the illustrations shown in the colored version in the iPad. Eep. Still, it looks interesting (and it was only P30, so why not buy, right?) If you’re more of a colored comic person, you can buy a copy from :) I hope to read and review this sometime soon.


And being a Trese fan, I cannot pass up something like this:

Signed glossy Trese poster in plastic case :)

It’s so pretty. :) Actually, we call it a placemat because it kinda looks like one. But this is going on my wall, once I’ve organized my room. Gotta love the detail in this one. :)

And there goes my week. Before I reward myself with anything else, I must get to 50,000 words on my NaNoWriMo novel first. Onward!

6 Thoughts on “In My Mailbox (21): Sales and Komikon

  1. These are some unusual books. Never heard of them before. Enjoy!

    • Hi June! You should definitely try some Jasper Fforde, they’re good. :) The rest of the books here are Filipino comics, but you can get High Society from the Kindle store. :)

  2. Great haul! I LOVE signed books! :D

  3. Hi Tina! I’ve love The Eyre Affair and I hope I can get the rest of the series and perhaps move on to his Dragonslayer series. How about his Nursery Crimes series?

    Ever since I’ve read Trese 1 and 2 (which I loved and I will surely get all 4) I have been looking around for other titles of local graphic novels and now I have my sight set on Filipino heroes League, after Trese. :D

    Love your “Maliksi” poster. Case 2 is one of my favorites.

    • His Nursery Crime series is also good! The only one that is a little hard to get into is the Shades of Grey one, but if you’ve been a longtime reader of Jasper Fforde, you’ll like that a lot too. :) Dragonslayer is the easiest to get into, IMHO. :)

      FHL is edited by Budjette too, so you won’t go wrong with it. :)

  4. I’ve never heard of these, but it’s still so exciting to get signed copies.

    And congrats on NaNoWriMo! You are amazeballs. Seriously. Happy reading, Tina!
