Once Upon a Twilight turns 3!


Happy Birthday to us. Can you believe it? Its been 3 years already since Once Upon a Twilight kicked off. The Hulk roller coaster at Universal Island is no comparison to the ride we have been on. THANK YOU to everyone that has been riding along all these years. Without the support and love from each and every one of you, we wouldn't be here today celebrating 3 years. I can't even begin to express how awesome is it to belong to such an amazing community. I get told all the time, "Why do you do it. Its so much work and time you have to put into the site and you don't get paid for it". I always respond the same way. "I get paid by knowing someone out there is reading what we are posting and enjoying it. That's payment enough."


So much has happen in the past 3 years. It crazy how a site that began for a few friends to read a about my traveling adventures and books I had read has become what it is today. Once Upon a Twilight is now a family that consist of over 10 reviewers. We call us a coven but really we are a family. There is not a single day that passes that we don't all talk to each other. We talk books and life. Now on the site you can read about so much having to do with books, authors and everything in between. I can literally sit here all day and just gush about everything that has happen in the past 3 years, but I won't. Just know that each and everyone one of us are THANKFUL to everyone who has befriend us where ever they find one of us, we are THANKFUL to the authors, publishers, agents that have put faith in us to help you out. I am THANKFUL for my coven, without you guys OUaT wouldn't be what it is today. To anyone I haven't included already, we are THANKFUL for you too. We have a saying here at Once Upon a Twilight "A book began the bond of a lifetime". 

So enough with the heavy and let's being the party! So along with cake and cupcakes (cant have a birthday without either), we have a nice box full of 2013 Young Adult ARCs (10) to give out with confetti!!!!  Plus for those that love their saucy books, a box full of Adult 2013 new releases/paperbacks (6). 

We also want to say HAPPY BIRTHDAY to one of our own that celebrated her 11th birthday on the 15th. A day before the blog's birthday. Having Bridget on the OUaT team , is such a huge asset. I have yet to meet a tween like her (not even my kids) that read YA books like she does. You would be fascinated within the first 30secs you sit and chat with her. So Ms. Bridget, from everyone on the team, we wish you the happiest 11th birthday ever. We hope this year is full of amazing things for you. xoxo




These are the prizes. 2013 YA ARCS (on left) and Adult PBs (on right)

  119. Congratulations on 3 years! There are so many good books in those piles. I would probably pick the YA only because I haven't read any of those. I loved Bitten and have read a few in that series. Her YA series are so good too.
