Once Upon a Read-a-Thon Final Update

 So I only got to read 2 books because of the many distractions I had with a teething little baby. Normally I am able to read more but she kept me quite busy. :) This is the first book I was able to finish and I loved it. It was a fun and intense read and made me want to keep reading.

Then this amazing book came out and I ran to Barnes & Noble and HAD to get it. 
I read Forever in a day and I couldnt put it down. The book was beautifully written and perfectly paced. I loved every moment and feel so satisfied with the ending. I love the hope and happiness it gave me in the end. I recommend this book to any and everyone. Thank you Maggie for an amazing series. Best series ever.

Overall I had a lot of fun participating in the Read-a-Thon. Thank you to  Lori at Pure Imagination, Candace at Candace's Book Blog, and Angela at Reading Angel for hosting this!

Original Sin Review

Original Sin (Personal Demons, #2)

Original Sin (Personal Demons #2)

Paperback400 pages
Published July 5th 2011 by Tor Teen

Luc Cain was born and raised in Hell, but he isn’t feeling as demonic as usual lately—thanks to Frannie Cavanaugh and the unique power she never realized she had. But you can’t desert Hell without consequences, and suddenly Frannie and Luc find themselves targeted by the same demons who used to be Luc’s allies.

Left with few options, Frannie and Luc accept the protection of Heaven and one of its most powerful angels, Gabe. Unfortunately, Luc isn’t the only one affected by Frannie, and it isn’t long before Gabe realizes that being around her is too…tempting. Rather than risk losing his wings, he leaves Frannie and Luc under the protection of her recently-acquired guardian angel.

Which would be fine, but Gabe is barely out the door before an assortment of demons appears—and they’re not leaving without dragging Luc back to Hell with them. Hell won’t give up and Heaven won’t give in. Frannie’s guardian exercises all the power he has to keep them away, but the demons are willing to hurt anyone close to Frannie in order to get what they want. It will take everything she has and then some to stay out of Hell’s grasp.

And not everyone will get out of it alive.

Some spoilers!!! 

I won this book in the giveaways section for first reads on GoodReads. And I am so glad I did. I absolutely loved Personal Demons and then Original Sin was darker since we are dealing with demons and betrayals. 

OMG! LOVE Luc but I also have a soft spot for Gabe.. I can't make up my mind between the two but I do wish Frannie would have chosen already who she wants to pick. I'm sure the next book will fill us in on that. 

I think this book had the right amount of action in the right spots and then at the end when Frannie asks Luc whether or not he was going with her and there was no reply!! Mannnnn! I hate waiting and have to wait another year? Jeeze! :D 

I love this series so far and recommend these books to all! Go get your copy today! No really.. do it!
