I finished Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins yesterday and I've been dying to write a review since. Unfortunately, work got in the way. Again. Haha. Anyhoo, the story is about Sophie Mercer and some other magical/ mystical/ paranormal/ whatever friends of hers who live in Hecate Hall a.k.a. Hex Hall for short.
First of all, I read the book because it was recommended by Sylvia a.k.a. Heinzypop from Goodreads. Haha. I
didn't really have plans of reading this book the first time I saw it
but since Sylvia said that it was an excellent read I decided to give it
a shot. I honestly loved the book from the get-go. There were no dull
moment as I started reading it. I loved Sophie. The fact that she is not
your average lame protagonist extraordinaire made her really likeable for me. I love the fact that she has a smart mouth! haha. She
seriously made me laugh every time she decided to open that mouth of
hers. Anyway, I love the way she developed a a character as the story
Then there's Archer
Cross, one of the magical/ mystical/ paranormal/ whatever friend of
hers. I love Archer. He kinda' reminds me of a less brooding Jace
Wayland and Will Herondale from the TMI and TID series by Cassandra
Clare. I honestly loved Archer. I don't know why but I just love my book boyfriends when they're bad! Anyway, I love his character from the very first time he entered the picture.
Anyhoo, the other characters were loveable for me. None of them annoyed me. Even the Evil Barbie Trio were likeable. I also loved Jenna. She's Sophie's roommate at the dorms, BTW. The
story was okay for me. Not too fast paced and not too slow either. I
loved the cliffhanger ending at the end and it made me want to read the
second book immediately which I did by the way. Overall, I'd give this a 5/5 stars and I'd definitely recommend it to anybody.
