“My only real solace? Sleep. In the absence of an explanation of anything, for everything, I live for it and what it can bring.”
Rebecca Lim, Mercy

“We angels are misconceived in the human world. People perceive us as kindly and bountiful; when, in truth, we are about as fluffy, as gentle, as yielding, as rattlesnakes.”
Rebecca Lim, Muse

“If I get too comfortable, I will wake one morning and everything around me will have shifted overnight. All I knew? I know no longer. And all I had? Vanished in an instant.
There’s nothing I can keep with me that will stay.
I must always re-establish ties.
I must tread carefulle or give myself away.
I must survive.
I must keep moving, but I don’t know why.”
Rebecca Lim, Mercy

BookLoversLife Hi Rebecca, just finished Mercy and I really liked it. Cant wait for the next one!!


Rebecca Hi Nat

Thanks so much for reading "mercy" - so glad you liked it! Exile is on its way. Take care and all best wishes from Oz!


Sangria Thanks for your friendship, Rebecca! :D


message 4: by Liz

Liz Carmichael Currently reading "Exile", and have to say you've done it again, Rebecca. When I started it I wondered if you would keep my interest as much as with "Mercy", and you have. I was hooked from the first few paragraphs, and find it unputdownable. Now I will have to read the other two when they come out.

Thanks for great reads.
Liz


Gina (Fantasia Books) thankyouu for accepting my friend request :) I loved Mercy and i'm going to order Exile soon :) they were amazing!!

-Gina :)


Annabelle Marie Veronica Thanks so much for accepting my friend request! I absolutely adored Mercy! Now I just hope Exile, Muse, and Fury are released in the U.S. as well(:


Cellina NOOOO. I can't find MUSE. I know it's out there but am at the Mercy (excuse the pun) of BIG W and Target as our bookstores have all closed down.

Why must people by everything online. There is nothing like a great novel in your hands.


Swiftsea I honestly cannot wait to read 'Mercy'-- I'm the 3rd reserve for the single book available at the PLC Lib. I knew I recognised the cover from today's assembly presentation SOMEWHERE. It was 49th of my 'To Read' list indicating a desire to read it a few months back. Year 12s' a big year so I'm uncertain as whether I'll even be able to read that many novels this year.
Thanks for being an inspiration! :) Would you like to attend this year's House Concerts? Haha.
