Lang Leav

So this is it! Finally, I saw her in person. 🙂 June 25, 2017 ❤

Lang Leav is an internationally bestselling author and social media sensation. She writes poems and prose about love, and anything that inspires her.

I first heard of her name in the Goodreads Award last 2015, her first book won!

WITH LANG LEAV

This is the line at Glorietta, we came here around 8:30am and as per the coordinators, the participants are already 500! **Note: they will accommodate 1000 participants only.

“People who are prone to sadness are more likely to pick up a pen.”
― Lang LeavSad Girls

SAD GIRLS BOOK

While waiting for the event, we attend at NBS Happy Space across the activity center. I enjoyed watching calligraphy tutorial by Ms Meeya 🙂 (I stalked her before in IG Hahahaha)

This is it!!! At 5:30pm, my number called and I just spent 3 minutes with her haha but this is worth it!

During the interview, she said that anxiety if common to her, not new, I think because she experiences this most of the times. This is her first novel ❤ But she revealed that she is currently working on her 2nd novel! But her fans, we intrigued we cannot see Michael Faudet in any of her pictures or his biography. Michael Faudet is also a poet, they are living together in New Zealand.

I love the fact that during an interview, she shared her inspiration and also her conversation with her partner, Michael, how can she write sad poems.

In “Lullabies,” she wrote about a conversation she had with Michael.
“Why do you write sad things? When I am here, when I love you.”
“Because someday, in one way or another, you will be taken from me or I you. When I write sad things, I am writing for the future.”

I first read her book last year, Love and Misadventures, her collection is very touching, I  love her poems.  Especially the A ROLLERCOASTER:

A ROLLERCOASTER

You will find him in
my highs and lows;
in my mind,
he’ll to and fro.

He’s the tallest person,
that I know—
and so he keeps me,
on my toes.
― Lang LeavLove & Misadventure

Like what the book says, Love & Misadventure:

Beautifully illustrated and thoughtfully conceived, Love and Misadventure will take you on a rollercoaster ride through an ill-fated love affair—from the initial butterflies through the soaring heights to the devastating plunge.  And, in the end, the message is one of hope.

 

I’m planning to read all her works and ofcourse, I can’t wait to read her Sad girls! ❤

Love,
