In the print world, the online cover reveal is as much an event as finally having a copy of the actual book or magazine in your hands.
The excitement was four times as much for BJ Pascual’s first book PUSH: Muses, Mischief, & How To Make It In Manila. From last week’s “Ano Na?” teaser video featuring BJ’s muses Kathryn Bernardo, Liza Soberano, Julia Barretto, and Nadine Lustre to the cover drops that started with Kathryn on Sunday evening, the anticipation, build-up and agitation (!) was perfectly captured on social media.
Using the hashtag #PUSHByBJPascual on Twitter and Instagram, we round up the best fan reactions to the hottest book to hit shelves this week.
The DIY Teasers
Girls of every age took to their phone cameras to create their own version of the “Ano Na?” video. Kudos to the cute toddler who’s mastered BJ’s catchphrase. No better way than to start them young.
It’s the virtual equivalent of BJ grabbing a Kathryn fan by the arms for a shake. Yes, it is the Teen Queen on cover no. 1!
Styling, spending, self-esteem—issues best addressed on social media.

The net is a good source of talent. Just look at these artistic interpretations of the PUSH covers.
The Covers That Didn’t Make It

Those who trekked to Fully Booked BGC earlier this week must have had a kid in a candy store moment.
This is our version of a happy ending: each one bringing home a copy (or multiples). Perfectly timed with the holiday shopping season, yes? It makes for a really cool gift, too!
