Metro Manila (CNN Philippines) — Young adult novelists Colleen Hoover, Tarryn Fisher, and Christine Brae stirred a storm in their first weekend in the Philippines. The three were warmly welcomed in Cebu last Saturday (September 12) and wreaked more havoc when the start of their Manila tour kicked off.
We all need an occasional escape from reality, and what better way than sinking your teeth into a juicy love triangle romance novel? The love triangle trope not only adds drama and suspense to the classic love story, but also can reveal two different sides to the protagonist’s personality. These seven novels feature love triangles that are poignantly reflective of hard choices, their consequences and the fickleness of fate in life. Are there happy endings at the end of these twisting, turning, journeys of love?
Christine Brae says she thought she could write a book about her life and then run away as far as possible from it.
Not so fast. Six books later, with her recent release of The Year I Left (Vesuvian Books), she is still going strong: a global advertising agency executive by day (and night) and also touching many women through her writing with the same story to tell.
Emmanuelle Chriqui and Adrian Bellani are developing a movie version of Christine Brae’s recently published romance-drama “In This Life,” Variety has learned exclusively.
The Manila International Book Fair is back for the 36th time. Four hundred booths, 200 exhibitors, countless reading possibilities and of course, authors galore.
