Just like one of its thousand readers of the first book, I hoped for its second book, and finally it has arrived.
Last May 1, 2016 at National Bookstore-Trinoma, actress-host and now, star writer Alex Gonzaga had a book signing event for her second book entitled Dear Alex We’re Dating. Tama, Mali? Love Catherine.
Just like the first book Dear Alex Break Na Kami. Paano? Love Catherine, many are already looking forward to the second one. Readers from all genders and ages were eager to read its contents. As someone who have read the first book, I can point out why this could be another hit, aside from its contents: her unique writing style.
While I was given the chance to have my book signed, I grabbed this opportunity to ask Alex regarding her witty writing style and the main point she told me about it was, “My personality is with the book.”
For Alex, she wrote her book while thinking of herself as a reader. Just like how she would feel, she wanted her readers to be informed at the same time be entertained about the topics. Furthermore, she added, “Pag nagsusulat ako (Whenever I write), I write as if I am personally telling my story to my readers.”
After discussing on how to cope up with break-ups on her first book, this second book discusses about moving on and meeting new one. Just like the first one, Alex seeks dating tips and advises from her family and friends as well as her personal experiences and shared it to her readers. Even during the open forum, she answered several questions from the audience regarding the topic, just like her stand on group dating. Aside from dating tips, she also shared that this book is an interacting one.
As for the status of her love life, the new love guru shared that she is happily entertaining people who enjoys her personality. For her, picking her partner for life happens not through dating but in God’s will. **
