Sophie verliebt sich Hals über Kopf in den traumhaft gut aussehenden Hexer Archer den Herzensbrecher von Hecate Hall Da werden auf dem Campus einige Hexen angegriffen und der Verdachtällt auf Sophies Zimmergenossi. Demons you get the idea Young adult antasy and urban antasy seems to have been constantly churning out of the same but Hex Hall really ticked all the right boxes or meGranted a boarding school or witches and whatnot isn t exactly original and it s a hard She Weeps Each Time You're Born field to compete in when you re up against the likes of JKRowling but I liked Hawkins laid back and kind of chick lit style writing The novel reminded me of something in between Vampire Academy and this TV show that I used to love when I was a kid called The Worst Witch maybe I m wrong but I d be willing to bet that not many people outside of the UK have heard of it Anyway you basically have all you expectrom a regular high school bullies bitchiness crushes dating school dances etc But then you also have the added trouble that comes with supernatural creatures and magical powers killers on the loose demons being summoned bullies that can turn you into a slug I won t say that I expected to hate it but I did expect to be bored I never imagined there would be moments that made me laugh out loud and annoyingly stereotypical bad boys that are actually hot enough to get away with being annoyingly stereotypical bad boys Yes you heard me right another young adult novel with another hot but dangerous male love interest but this time I completely loved it Maybe my mid life crisis came early but I thought Archer was really hot If I d been at Hex Hall I know I would have both hated and wanted to be with him at the same time I think I liked him most because he had a sense of humour and didn t say really stupid cliched phrases like I m wrong or you because I m so badass okay maybe it doesn t uite go like that but I hate literary heroes that believe they re so bad that they ve earned the right to apologise or it Ugh My point Archer wasn t like thatThe mystery was alright but it wasn t my Seven Days, Seven Dinners favourite bit the novel s strength was in the characters and the dialogue not in the plot behind it all Basically someone died someone was accused real culprit wasound out the end Probably was what stopped me A Northern Light from giving it 5 stars myull marks demand a better story But what the heck it was If You're Missing Baby Jesus: A True Story that Embraces the Spirit of Christmas fun I enjoyed it a lot and I now have every intention of reading Demonglass I ve wanted to be a witchorever Long before anyone uttered the words Harry Potter You see there was this awesome movie called Teen Witch Have you seen it Well the girl inds out she is witch turns her little brother into a dog gets to meet a amous singer AND snags the most popular boy at school All because she had magical powers I so wanted to be a witchPerhaps that is why I loved this book so much or maybe it s because Hex Hall is a laugh out load Anne Perrys Christmas Crimes (Christmas Stories, fast paced and easy read It could really go either way The point is however that it was marvelousI ve been trying to write this reviewor days I m not sure why I ind it so difficult to explain why I ind something so enjoyable but or whatever the reason I do Ask me why "I Don T Like Something I Can Write You A "don t like something I can write you a a mile long but describe why I like it I just do that s whyIt could be Sophie the main character She is just an enjoyable protagonist She s caring open minded a good riend and she might be a little gullible at times but that is what makes her so great She isn t a perfect character she makes mistakes and we get to laugh at her The Slave Dancer for it Well sometimesMaybe it was the plot I will admit at times it was a little predictable but it was never slow And I might have thought I knew what was going on but Hawkin s really threw meor a loop I m sure it will leave you craving the next novel

Well this is just the same old tired ormat Setting Them Straight: You CAN Do Something About Bigotry and Homophobia in Your Life for paranormal YA boarding school romps I ve seen the same story time and time again in books like Secret LivesEvernightFirespell and it is just boring me1misfit teen sent to boarding school2she doesn t want to be there3gets on wrong side of popular bitches on day one4instant crush on sexiest guy at school5her onlyriend is a ellow misfit6grim teachers7obnoxious students8murderer on the looseThe characters are either obnoxious muppets or cardboard cut outs that have no depth or interest to them The teachers don t seem to give a damn about discipline explain to me why the werewolf who attacked Sophie on her irst minute on campus got no punishment Is attempted murder seen as acceptable at this school The only one who was given a stern talking to was the guy who saved Sophie by using magic to protect her 100 ways to Fight the Flab - and still have wine and chocolate from the werewolf Strange moral coderom the head teacher don t you think As usual in these books the kids do what the hell they like with the teachers ignoring them which defeats the whole purpose of the school in my opinion These kids are sent to this school because they can t control their power so surely they should be watched closely I hate stupid plots like thissigh I think it s time to give up on these cloned books and pick up a proper urban The Oxford New Greek Dictionary fantasy book with a decent story and characters that don t bug me to death It s been years since I read Hex Hallor the The Cello Suites : J.S. Bach, Pablo Casals, and the search for a Baroque masterpiece first time andor some reason I got a strong The New Job Security feeling that I need to re read this one After six years So here I m and this time in EnglishThe main character is 16 which is a little younger than books I usually read right now But honestly I did not care at all Sophie is so damn hilarious I love that girl view spoilerBut I need to take one star downor the instacrushinstalove hide spoiler Fun This book really grew on me It took several tries to get past the The Day Fidel Died: Cuba in the Age of Raúl, Obama, and the Rolling Stones (A Vintage Short) first couple of chapters but once Sophieinally gets settled in at Hex Hall things start moving along The witchy battles are pretty cool there s good build up of the mystiue behind the school and behind Sophie s past and powers and the author does a nice job with creating a variety of different characters with distinctive voices I especially liked BFF Jenna and the super cute and witty Archer and Sophie herself turns out to be a pretty kick ass heroine It did take me a little while to get used to the author s voice but the humor actually gets to be really good as the story develops and I ve gone back to giggle over certain passages again Overally this is a really terrific debut and a ast paced entertaining read It s always a plus when a YA author manages to surprise her audience with twists and "TURNS IN THE PLOT TOO AND THERE ARE A "in the plot too and there are a of really good ones here that will leave readers on the edge or Besidesyou can t not love a here that will leave readers on the edge or Besidesyou can t not love a who tries to stop an attacking werewolf by yelling BAD DOG Actual Rating 35 starsIt took me a while to start reading this book My last Rachel Hawkins one didn t attracted me that much and It s not an original plot A young witch who screw up and let humans see her magic Firstly how can she be that dumb to show her magic to others like nothing Who she doesn t even know that well and is like let me be your To Helvetica and Back fairy godmother Ops sorryThen she is sentenced to a magical boarding schoolor delinuent supernatural beingsAnd there she makes Simple Art of Greatness friend with this pinky girly vampire who is her new roommateview spoilerAnd I loved how the homosexual card was played here Jenna is so sweat and her relationship with Sophie was really awesome I really liked that we have a book thatinally portraits that having a gay girl Where the Heart Waits friend doesn t means she will be different or that she won t like pink or beeminine or even that she will
