Book Review: Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins


"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." Goodreads summary. 

I was kind of hesitant going into this book, I wasn't sure if this book was hyped up or if it really was worth my time reading it, because I've heard so much about it and it seemed like everyone I follow in the book community on YouTube has this series on their shelves. However I found this book to be amazing! I don't know what it is, but I find books that take place in some sort of boarding school really thrilling, hehe. I devoured every single page, the writing was really good, the humor seeps through every page and Sophie has become one of my favorite characters, she is so fun and sarcastic that you can't help love her. 

My favorite quote from the book: 

"Let's just say you may regret that second piece of cake.'
Oh my God. Regret cake? Whatever was about to happen must be truly evil." 
— Rachel Hawkins (Hex Hall (Hex Hall, #1))

I gave this book five out of five stars on Goodreads and if you haven't already; you should get your hands on this book and dive right in!
