Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins
Rating: 4 of 5 Stars
Why did I wait so long to read this book? Cynthia from A Blog about Nothing read it and loved it, but for some reason it kept slipping to the bottom of my to read list. Big mistake because I loved this book! Sophie Mercer is half witch from her father's side but raised by her human mother. Sophie cast a
Hecate or Hex Hall as the students call it is where witches, fey, and shapshifters go when they expose who they are in the human world. Sophie hopes that at Hecate she will make friends with others like her, but she soon realizes that fitting in isn't easy especially when she discovers more about her magical history. Sophie is also thrown together with Archer, the super hot guy at school, but he is dating Elodie. Elodie needs Sophie to join her group but can't stand Sophie. I love that Sophie is witty and had me laughing out loud when she tries to conjure a dress.
From beginning to end Hex hall was unexpected and I enjoyed every minute. The ending is left open for Demonglass, book two in the Hex Hall series that will be released March 1, 2011. I will gladly pick up anything that Rachel Hawkins writes.
