Novel Portraits is a weekend feature where I showcase book photography! Photography is my second most favourite hobby next to reading! A love child of the two dearest things to me- book photography is awesome and thus demands a segment on the blog. To read more about the feature, check out the introductory post for Novel Portraits.
So it’s been awhile since I did an iPhoneography roundup (exactly a year- I know, I’m very horrible at keeping up my features) and since I dropped my monthly recaps, I thought I might share what’s been happening through Instagram photos instead.
October 2015 Snaps
The Novel: Carry On by Rainbow Rowell
The Portrait: Taken 10/10/15, with iPhone 5, shared on Instagram
Description: One of the most memorable events of the month was the Carry On PH Launch party hosted by Pinoy Book Tours. It was fun to hang out with fellow book bloggers and Rainbow Rowell fans and meet some new people. Plus, there were awesome Carry On cupcakes, balloons, swag and fun games. I really hope we get to do more events like this locally!
The Novel: How Hard Can Love Be? by Holly Bourne
The Portrait: Taken 10/22/15, with iPhone 5, shared on Instagram
Description: October was the month of awesome book mails, in case you missed my book haul recently. This one from Usborne for a special edition proof of the second book for Holly Bourne’s Normal series, the first book being Am I Normal Yet? which I reviewed recently, was my favorite. Look at that awesome cover and adorable packaging. And candies!!
The Novel: Anne of Green Gables by Lucy Montgomery
The Portrait: Taken 10/25/15, with iPhone 5, shared on Instagram
Description: I had the pleasure of attending a blogger trade show where we saw National Bookstore‘s latest products. They’re stocking Word Cloud classics that I absolutely covet!

Description: The voting period for Bloggys 2015, Philippine Blogging Awards, was all throughout October. I asked for everyone’s support and feel so grateful for those who did vote for the blog. Seriously, THANK YOU. Y’all are the reason Stay Bookish is going strong. Finalists will be announced soon and I’m keeping my fingers crossed!
Follow me on Instagram or Twitter to get updates of my latest bookish iPhoneography!
How was last month for you? Hope your November will be all sorts wonderful, book nerds!
I’ve seen so many of those Cloud classics in Shanghai, but my favorite one would have to be the dropcap editions. Because of course, the lettering. I’ll buy them all someday from Fully Booked when there’s a giant sale happening. Someday.
And I wish there were more launches! Hopefully sometime in December/January or May-July. XD
Yes the drop cap classics are absolutely gorgeous. I swear I want so many editions of classics even though I’ve never gotten around to reading them. Let’s hope someday is soon, yeah? ;)
I’ll let you know if there are any more events when you’re here in the PH!
The Carry On cupcakes look so cute *O* Good luck with the Bloggys! Keeping my fingers crossed for you :)
Right? They’re adorable! And thank you so much- your support means the world, Chri!
whoa! those cupcakes look yummy!
I already bought myself a copy of Carry On, but still too busy bc of school.. Ain’t got time to read at all :'(
They were yummy ;) Same here- I have Carry On but haven’t read it yet! Hopefully, we’ll both find the time soon.
That Carry On picture is seriously awesome!
Thank you, Tiffany! Glad you like it!
I have yet to see a Classic rebinding that I HAVEN’T LOVED. Omg, this is getting way to costly. You also take such amazing photos on your iPhone, teach me your ways! I can never get the lighting right D:!
And oooo those Carry On cupcakes look delightful! I enjoyed the book so much <3
I know, right? Too bad they almost always cost twice a YA paperback. And thanks so much for your kind words, Aentee! I’m not the best person to ask when it comes to lighting too actually. So happy to hear you enjoyed Carry On though!
Love the matching cupcakes to the book! And it looks like it was a fun event.
It really was! I wish I could make a whole detailed recap post about it but I’m too busy at the moment. :( I’m glad I shared this cupcake photo snippet though.
OMG, those Carry On cupcakes are the best thing EVER!
