"Para sa Hopeless Romantic," a romance novel by Marcelo Santos III, debuts at no. 2 of National Bookstore's Top 10 Bestsellers list for Philippine Publication for the month of April.

April Bestsellers

“Para sa Hopeless Romantic” arrived in National Bookstore, Powerbooks and Fully Booked on the first week of February, in time for Valentine’s Day. It was an instant hit, making it to the “Everyone’s Talking About” table together with the books authored by Papa Jack of Love Radio and Chico, Delamar & Gino of RX 93.1. After 45 days, the initial print run was sold out prompting Lifebooks, the publisher of the said romance novel, to rush to its second print run.

This April, the book made it to no. 2 of National Bookstore’s Top 10 Bestsellers for Philippine Publication based from the quantity sold last March. It became the 7th title from Lifebooks, it’s first fiction release at that, to enter the prestigious bestsellers list after “365 Moments to Cherish” by Robert Strand, “Text Thots,” “Texts of Endearment,” “Extreme Ringtones,” “365 Text Thots Day after Day,” and “Good Morning God” by Pamela Steinke.

Back Cover:

Lahat ng tao ay may kanya-kanyang love story. Mga kwentong tayo mismo ang nagmimistulang manunulat. Mga sariling lovelife na nais nating magkaroon ng happy ending.

Ang unang nobelang ito ni Marcelo Santos III ay tungkol sa limang taong nakikipagsapalaran sa mundo ng pag-ibig – isang umaasang babalikan, isang naghahangad na mahalin, isang natatakot nang umibig muli, isang nagsusumikap na makalimot at isang nag-aasam ng maligayang pag-iibigan.

Ang nobelang ito ay para sa mga taong iniwan at ipinagpalit, para sa mga taong nagging panakip butas, para sa umaasang mamahalin, para sa umaasang babalikan, para sa mga Hopeless Romantic.
