Hex Hall (Hex Hall #1) by Rachel Hawkins

The blurb (from Goodreads):
Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

My Thoughts:
Oh My God! Where do I begin with Hex Hall? The book was so amazing I had to force myself to stop reading it cause I had a life to live. I loved it!!!

The cover is so pretty I knew I had to buy it in hardback from the first time I saw it. Thank God I did!
Sophie is a smart, funny heroine, who I loved from the first page. Hex Hall is a place I'd kill to be really, just like Hogwarts. The story was amazing, I loved that there were so many things from the past that influence the story line.

I ordered the next one before I was finished but I still have to wait a week to get my hands on it. I want so bad to read it!


  1. Awww what a sweet review! This is suddenly shooting way up on the TBR list. No, I'm not blindly following you (which I would not really mind), our tastes seem to be very similar

  2. @anaavu: It really is awesome. You have to read it! I'm a huge fan of Harry Potter and I never thought another book would give me that Hogwarts feeling (whatever it is :P) but this book really did! :)

  3. I will never forget the first time I read Hex Hall! I like it. Lovely review! I also have the same feelings with the cover!

  4. I've been wanting to read this for so long now. After reading your review, I might have to bump it up on my TBR list. :) Great Review and congratulations on your 1 year anniversary.
