Welcome to Day 3 of my Blogoversary Bash!
Lisa Desrochers is the author of Personal Demons:
Frannie Cavanaugh is a good Catholic girl with a bit of a wicked streak. She has spent years keeping everyone at a distance—-even her closest friends—-and it seems as if her senior year is going to be more of the same . . . until Luc Cain enrolls in her class. No one knows where he came from, but Frannie can’t seem to stay away from him.
What she doesn’t know is that Luc is on a mission. He’s been sent from Hell itself to claim Frannie’s soul. It should be easy—-all he has to do is get her to sin, and Luc is as tempting as they come. Frannie doesn’t stand a chance. But he has to work fast, because if the infernals are after her, the celestials can’t be far behind. And sure enough, it’s not long before the angel Gabriel shows up, willing to do anything to keep Luc from getting what he came for. It isn’t long before they find themselves fighting for more than just Frannie’s soul.
But if Luc fails, there will be Hell to pay . . . for all of them.
I read some really fabulous books over the last year. Some of them were published much earlier and I finally got around to reading them. Here are the ones that really spoke to me and left me thinking about them long after I finished.
If I Stay by Gayle Forman
I often get asked the question: Which book to you wish you wrote? I now have an answer to that question. The writing in If I Stay is amazing. Gayle gets totally out of the way and lets her characters tell their story. The romance is real and the characters jump off the page. I don’t often cry when I read, but this one left me in tears. Oh…and I’m totally pining for Adam, so I can’t wait to get inside his head in the sequel, Where She Went.
I loved everything about this novel right up until the end. I’m still trying to figure out how I feel about that. I want to marry Henry DeTamble. And I love his name.
The Truth About Forever by Sarah Dessen
First off, Wes=yummy. Most of Sarah Dessen’s novels leave me pining for her boys, but I especially liked the dynamic between Macy and Wes.
One word. Wesley. I have never met a man-whore I wanted more.
Mockingjay by Suzanne Collins
Other than Harry Potter 7, this is the only book I’ve ever bought and read on release day. I know the reviews are all over the place, but I think she wrapped up the trilogy in a realistic, creative and poignant way. Weeks after I finished it, I was still picking it up to reread sections.
I find it a little interesting that I write paranormal, but there’s no paranormal up there. O_O
I just bought If I Stay. I've been eyeballing it forever, and I've heard so many incredible things about it that I can't wait any longer to read it. The Truth About Forever is one of my favorite books EVER and I absolutely loved The DUFF.
Thanks so much for sharing, Lisa!
