Hi all, welcome to my new blog!
So, I guess you are wondering who I am and why I am starting a blog. Well, my name is Chrissie and I am a 29 year old british girl who loves to read, as well as spending time with my husband and my two young boys. I am now a full time mum but before I had my second child I was a librarian. I absolutely loved the job (who wouldn't love being surrounded by books all the time!) but I wanted to stay at home with my boys and enjoy them whilst they are still young.
As for why I started a blog the answer is simple: I have a terrible memory and I want a record of the books that I have read. Once Upon a Series is actually my second blog. I ran Chrissie's Corner for almost a year until my husband became very ill at the beginning of the year and I just didn't have time to continue with it. But during my time off I spent a lot of time thinking about the direction I wanted my blog to go in and came up with some great ideas for features etc and Once Upon a Series is the result.
One of these features is my list of series' from my favourite genres. Please take a look at these lists and hopefully you'll be able to find some new books to read. Also, feel free to tell me about any that I've missed (there's bound to be many!) and I'll add them to the list. The genres I have written lists for are:
Now that you've learnt a little bit about me here is the important question - Who would like to win some books???? In celebration of my new blog I am giving away a copy of the first two books in the Mercy series by Rebecca Lim to one lucky winner.
Mercy wakes on a school bus bound for Paradise, a small town where everyone knows everyone else's business... or thinks they do. But Mercy has a secret life. She is an angel, doomed to return to earth, taking on a new human form each time she does, in an effort to resolve a cataclysmic rift between heavenly beings.
In Paradise, Mercy meets Ryan, an eighteen-year-old whose sister was kidnapped two years ago and is presumed dead. When another girl is also taken, Mercy knows she has to act quickly and use extraordinary powers to rescue her, even if it means exposing her true identity.
An electric combination of angels, mystery and romance, Mercy is the first book in a major new series.
An angel in exile, Mercy is doomed to return repeatedly to earth, taking on a new human form each time she does. Now she "wakes" as unhappy teen Lela, a girl caring for her dying mother but never herself.
As her shattered memory begins to return, Mercy remembers Ryan, the boy she fell in love with in another life, and Luc, the angel haunting her dreams. Will Mercy risk Lela's life to be reunited with her heart's true desire.
An electric combination of angels, mystery and romance, Exile is the second book in the spellbinding Mercy series.
