A Demon Made Me Do It by Penelope King

Some girls share clothes, a bathroom, or a bedroom. Seventeen-year-old Liora Greyson has to share, too. Only she shares her body--with a demon.

Liora just wants to survive her final year of high school unscathed, her dark secret intact. But the walls she’s carefully constructed to keep people away crack wide open once she meets the sexy and mysterious Kieron, and he lights her world on fire. She can’t let him know she transforms into a demon named "Lucky" at nightfall—a demon with an entirely separate personality who passes out Torment, Justice, and Revenge like Halloween candy.

Turns out Kieron is the one who should be afraid once Lucky discovers his true identity and motivations. Liora wants to love him, but Lucky thinks he’s public enemy number one. And having a demon with a vendetta show up during a romantic date puts a serious crimp in any relationship.

Fighting your demons is one thing. Having one that fights back, messes with your guy, and leaves you with nasty hangovers is quite another.

Being bad has never been so good...

Kathryn's Review

As I started this book, I didn't fathom that it was going to happen the way it did. With that in mind, it also took me a little bit to get my head around what was happening to the main characters Liora and Lucky. The book is told in alternating point of views and not being a person that gives spoilers, lets just say that when the fog lifted, I really became more engrossed in the book and was able to connect to both lead characters.
A Demon Made Me Do It, gives us a tale of young girl struggling with her life and the demon she has to deal with in it. And to top that off the hot best friend, Bones, whom is a hellhound and the new guy, Keiron, that comes in to town will ultimately turn Liora and Lucky's worlds upside down.
This book provided such a new take on many of the stories that have been written lately. There is suspense, action, building of relationships, heartache, and an enticement to delve in to this new world that when I finally got to the end, I was like....Oh no,NOOOO!!! this can't be the end.... What happens next?
With a somewhat slow start, this book turned in to a great read and I am now eagerly running to get the next installment. 



  1. This actually sounds fabulous! I love the idea of alternating POV's between the main character's personalities. Have we seen that before? Seems unique to me. And who doesn't love a forbidden romance? This was one I hadn't heard of until Kathryn said she got her hands on it. I have to say, I'm more than intrigued and I'll be getting A Demon Made Me Do It, myself. ~Shelley

  2. This sounds like a good book but I am a sucker for demons :) I am going to tell my girls about this for our shared reading list.


  3. I love her Demon Girl Series and think I need to give this one a try!

  4. OK, I went to put it on my wish list and realized I got my authors confused. This still looks like my kind of book though, even with egg on my face ;).
