Hex Hall

Author: Rachel Hawkins

Source: Library

Summary: (goodreads) 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.

Review: Sophie Mercer has quite the voice. Her personality is sarcastic, spontaneous, smart. Actually, all of the characters rock. This book combines so many different personalities and types of monsters that it makes for a pretty funny and interesting read. The bff is Jenna. And she is a vampire obsessed with the color pink. Jenna is really nice, but also supports Sophie when she needs it. She can be strong.

The "gorgeous warlock" is also full of spunk although I imagine he is very swoon-worthy. His snarky comments are what spark the relationship between him and Sophie and ultimately make both characters very alive. Except I kind of felt a lack of connection between the two romantically which I suspect will develop more in the next books.

I absolutely loved all of the characters and the story and everything. Hope you guys enjoyed it or will enjoy it as much as I have :)
