“The Game of Twenty Questions” by Elizabeth Galit

Charlemagne Villegas hasn’t gotten over her breakup with Dave. But it has been three years since the breakup happened. Everybody (maybe except for her) has moved on. And so there’s nothing wrong in going to the beach with Dave and their old friends, right?

But what if Charlie discovers otherwise? What if like her, someone else hasn’t gotten over what happened three years ago? Would it be another heartache? Or a second once-in-a-lifetime chance?

Here's Beth G.'s Playlist. 

Beth said:
I just recently updated my playlist, and that's after almost fifteen years! I don't know if it improved, but then, most people do not understand my taste in music. Thing is, when it sounds good and the words are relatable, then it's good for me. So here are the songs I've been listening to these days. 

1. Mula Sa Buwan album. The songs in this heartbreaking musical invaded my heart like no other. I wasn't into this kind of music until I learned that Ultimate Crush likes it so much! LOL! Kidding aside, though, the songs ultimately sums up everything I feel inside, especially Ikaw and Tinig sa Dilim. 

2. Korean Drama OSTs. My Love From Another Star (Kim Soo Hyun is ❤) and Legend of the Blue Sea OSTs are great. I mean, I know I have to Google the romanized version of the lyrics so I know what it means, but the melodies are just... superb! 

3. Backstreet Boys songs. Some things never change, and once a BSB fan, always a BSB fan. :-)

My Firsts in 2016



A lot happened this 2016, it was a year of first times. First April Feels Day, first Heist Club Launch, my first Manila International Book Fair, and first October Feels Day were the highlights in my writing endeavor. 

...and I still have a long way to go. Aja!


April
The April Feels Day was the first #romaceclass event I attended and also where I met Elizabeth and Kim. Yay!


June
The Heist Club Launch was the first book launch I was able to attend to. It felt surreal. There were question and answer portion about our books. I was so thankful that I delivered answers during my turn. Heist Club people were amazing, hand-in-hand we could achieve goals set by the group. We also started writing Book 2 of our Heist Club Series and it was set to be launch on the first or second quarter of 2017.

September
MIBF! Finally, I was present during the 37th MIBF. It was a dream come true. Being surrounded by lots of books was like a taste of my addiction to paperback copies.

October
Feels Fest of #romanceclass was a day of kilig and book launch. Once Summer Days was blessed to be one of the books and the 5 minutes given to me at the event to speak about my book in front of readers and writers was nerve wracking and blissful experience.

I met lots of awesome people because of #romanceclass. Yey! 💕😊

I have 3 self-published books in 2016. Yay! 💕
Yearning for the One - April
Chasing an Elusive Dream - August
Once Summer Days - October

None of these would happen if it wasn't for God's provision. More friends to meet! More stories to write and books to publish! 

Fighting!
