Language: Filipino
Format: Paperback

Nang dahil sa binasa kong "Librong Itim" (see previous book review about Librong Itim Vol. 1 & 2), na-miss ko kasi magbasa ng mga nakakatakot na libro. Naalala ko yung True Philippine Ghost Stories na serye na limbag ng PSICOM. Natuklasan ko na may online store ang PSICOM sa http://psicom.ocnk.biz/ at nakita ko na mahigit 30+ serye na pala ang TPGS. Yung huling limbag nila ang binili ko kasi nagtitipid ako. Yung TPGS Spookify na lang yung pinili ko. Siyempre hindi lang yun binili ko para hindi sayang yung shipping. Sinubukan ko yung iba nilang item at ito yung nakita ko sa top ranking item nila - Hell University! May dating yung pamagat. Nag-quick research ako at natuklasan ko na base ito originally from Wattpad story na sinulat ni KnightInBlack.

Ang haba ng paliwanag ko. Basahin mo na lang po ang aking book review sa ibaba.

Natuklasan ko ang librong ito sa patimpalak ng Black Ink, isang lokal na manlilimbag sa Pilipinas. Kamakailan lang ay isinali ko ang aking likha sa kanilang patimpalak. Sa kasawiang-palad ay di nakapasa ang isinali ko. Ayos lamang dahil, sa pang-ilang ulit kong basa sa Maikling Kwento na ginawa ko, hindi rin matakot-takot sa gawa ko. Horror genre kasi ang kailangan sa Librong Itim, pangalan ng libro na naglalaman ng iba't-ibang kwento mula sa mga iba't-ibang tao. Hindi requirement ang pagiging journalist or degree sa panitikan, basta't may kuwento kang nakakatakot at kanais-nais alinsunod sa tema na kailangan nila, maaari kang sumali.

At ayun nga, di nakapasok ang entry ko kaya naman bumili na ako ng mismong aklat nila upang basahin ang gawa ng mga nagsilahok para gawin itong inspirasyon at matuto na rin kung paano nga ba gumawa ng Horror Story na patok sa panlasa ng hurado nila.

Book Review: One More Chance | A Novel by Juan Miguel Sevilla

Lazada Philippines


I just found this book lying around the house. It came with the balikbayan box from Singapore sent by a relative. Not sure if the signature is from my cousin or from the author itself. But they told me it wasn't my cousin's signature. I'm just not sure.

One More Chance front cover art

Title: One More Chance
Author:
Screen Writer(s): Vanessa Valdez, Carmi Raymundo
Cover art: Lorra Elena Angbue-Te
ISBN: 9789718161333
Publisher: ABS-CBN Publishing Inc.
Published Date:
Language: Filipino and English / Taglish
Genre: Romance, Contemporary, Adult Fiction






Note, this book was based from the movie "One More Chance" by Cathy Garcia-Molina

I have no liking to any Filipino films but I'm aware of the movie title as it was trending before in the kitchen of our office. It was a word of mouth by most of my girl friends (not girlfriend). The movie was a success during its time. I'm not curious about it even if the TV commercial tell me it was a huge success. Many Filipino movies announced their success in TV commercials but the competing TV Channel don't. So, I don't trust what they're saying.

I underestimate the movie without watching it. But as I read this novelized version "One More Chance" by Juan Miguel Sevilla, I find the story pretty good.
