Love and Misadventure with Lang Leav!

Source: Fully Booked
Last Sunday, I was one of the girls who lined up at the 4th Floor of Fully Booked ATC to have our books signed and catch a glimpse of this lovely poet named Lang Leav. In case you don't know her, Lang Leav is the author of the poetry book entitled Love and Misadventure. This is a collection of poems and short stories that will capture your hearts through its simplicity but deep meaning. You can also find some illustrations in the book drawn by Lang herself.

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.

The journey from love to heartbreak to finding love again is personal yet universal. Lang Leav's evocative poetry speaks to the soul of anyone who is on this journey. Leav has an unnerving ability to see inside the hearts and minds of her readers. Her talent for translating complex emotions with astonishing simplicity has won her a cult following of devoted fans from all over the world.

Lang Leav is a poet and internationally exhibiting artist. Her work expresses the intricacies of love and loss.

The 4th floor of Fully Booked was so full of Lang Leav's fans patiently waiting for the event to start

The event started on time and finished early. We didn't experience hassle during the signing. Thanks to Fully Booked and its staff for making this event successful! Please bring more authors here at the Philippines!

I also have a poetry blog named The Tongue-tied Poet. Feel free to visit it if you have time and if you're into poetry. Let me know your thoughts! By the way, here's a short poem by yours truly, inspired by Lang Leav's book:

by Algel Crestfall

Once again,

I understand.
I feel.
I yearn.
To read and write,
my own love story
and misadventures
through poetry.



  1. I wasn't able to go because my semi-finals were coming up but Lang Leav looks so cute!

  2. Too sad! But don't worry, she told us that she'll definitely go back to PH for another book signing event! Maybe next year :)))


Let me know what you think! :)
