add-to-goodreads-button3Summery: 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.

rbI have heard a lot of good things about this book. After reading all the reviews and reading about on goodreads, i had such high hopes for this book. My gut was telling me i was gonna love this book. For one it has witches and other cool make believe things. And two it’s at a school. Sounds pretty epic. I am happy to say i was not disappointed. I love the book. I adored Sophie, She is has this sassy attitude about her that you can’y help but to like her. She makes me laugh when things are serious.

Sophie knew she was a witch. She gain her powers when she was fourteen. She tried to do a love spell to help a girl and it went wrong. Her father send her to a school for short called Hex hall. She never meet her father and she learns she was kept many secrets about who she was. Crazy things start to happen.

I loved the twist in turns in this book, in moment that totally shocked me. The book was very intense. Seriously toward the end you will will go insane. The book was beautifully written, easy to follow along with. A really awesome story of a girl trying to fit in the world of magic. I really honestly loved everything about this book.

I loved the fact there was no Insta-love in this book and it wasn’t all about the romance. You really only got a little bit that you could enjoy the whole story. Some books start  with the romance and make the the whole book about it but you don’t get that with Hex Hall.

Hex Hall was a fast read for me. I read it in less then a day in one sitting. You could easy be zoned into this book. I didn’t want to get up when i knew i needed to because i didn’t want to stop reading it. The Book was better then i thought it was gonna be, i knew it was gonna be good but i didn;t think i would LOVE LOVE LOVE this book. I highly recommend this book. It has Werewolfs, Fairies, Vampires, Witches. How could you NOT read this? Read it now people! it is amazing.
