This weeks question comes from

Marie of Mission to Read

"What is/was your favorite subject in school?"

 

School EEK. Um I dont think I really ever had a favorite subject, there were classes I liked way more then others because of the teachers. One that sticks out was American History. The teacher was young and brand new but had a wonderful personality and made class fun to be in while we learned.

Hex Hall

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.


I just recently heard of the Hex Hall Series and after reading great reviews I thought I would give it a try. I thought Sophie was a wonderful main character she was sarcastic, funny and down to earth. There were a few points in the book that my Husband looked over at me like I had lost my mind because I was cracking up so hard from all her witty comments and funny situations. HEX HALL was a fast fun read filled with tension, mystery, comic relief, great characters, a fantastic storyline and situations I had no problem picturing. There are some great twists I didn't expect and there is a big cliffhanger at the end that I wish wasn't so big that makes waiting for DEMONGLASS a tad bit harder.

 I gave it 4/5 stars
