Boarding school. Flirt OK, I originally gave this 3. Flirtytirty boys. Cellar shenanigans. Evil b witches. Low Points. And characters being jammed into restrictive stereotypes…. She was so useless and awkward and unaware of herself and goofy and sarcastic and she was such a refreshing narrator because she seemed really… well, real.
So many books that I and my friends! What in the world is wrong with freckles?! Love Interest. Well, in the beginning I could take Archer or leave him.
Yeah, he was fine….
He coasted. That was until the end when he suddenly got much more interesting. And ripped, apparently. Best Friend. Lesbian vampire. Jenna was fantastic and, although Sophie was sometimes a bit unnecessarily cruel to her Um, wallowing in self-pity?! I have to admit when she came out of the coffin my eyes did begin to roll and my lips began to curl, my natural reaction to vampires. Theme Tune. OK, when I first picked up this book I was all smitten and smug smuggen?
But then Ms Hawkins with her devious twists and turns which I will not divulge completely blew that out of the water. So I thought I was snookered. But then I thought, no.
Because I love this song and it is perfect for seducing unsuspecting warlocks in a basement this book…. Witchy Woman by Eagles Angst Level.
This book is relatively tame in the angst level. Although… I gather the sequel is going to be a lot darker. Recommended For. People who are looking for a new fictional best friend that will make them realise how boring and ordinary their lives are. People who would be able to think of witty responses to a werewolf lunging for your jugular. People who are sick of others being suspicious when they ask them to join their secret coven. People who will always lust after the groundskeeper.
People who wish their detentions had been that fun… mmmhmmm. Although, I probably would have more luck finding a prom date than finding someone to go on Air for the third time in a row. View all 21 comments.
Apr 26, Wendy Darling rated it really liked it Shelves: This book really grew on me. It took several tries to get past the first couple of chapters, but once Sophie finally gets settled in at Hex Hall things start moving along. The witchy battles are pretty cool, there's good build-up of the mystique 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 fast-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 couple of really good ones here that will leave readers on the edge for more.

The author manipulated these fantastic characters pretty well and created interesting conflicts and twists although personally, I think the plot could use a bit more action. This is highly recommended especially for young readers or even old looking for a light, enjoyable fantasy read. View all 56 comments. May 11, Emily May rated it really liked it Shelves: I was so pleasantly surprised by this book, almost as surprised as I am by the fact that I actually decided to read it. I'd all but given up on young adult novels that feature any of the following: Young adult fantasy and urban fantasy seems to have been constantly churning out more of the same, but Hex Hall really ticked all the right boxes for me.
Granted, a boarding school for witches and whatnot isn't exactl I was so pleasantly surprised by this book, almost as surprised as I am by the fact that I actually decided to read it. Granted, a boarding school for witches and whatnot isn't exactly original and it's a hard field to compete in when you're up against the likes of J.
Rowling , 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 expect from a regular high school: But then you also have the added trouble that comes with supernatural creatures and magical powers: 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: Maybe my mid-life crisis came early but I thought Archer was really hot.
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 for you because I'm so badass" - okay, maybe it doesn't quite go like that but I hate literary heroes that believe they're so bad that they've earned the right to apologise for it.
My point: Archer wasn't like that. The mystery was alright but it wasn't my favourite bit; the novel's strength was in the characters and the dialogue, not in the plot behind it all. Probably was what stopped me from giving it 5 stars, my full marks demand a better story. But what the heck, it was fun, I enjoyed it a lot, and I now have every intention of reading Demonglass.

After six years.
So, here I'm and this time in English. The 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!
Nothing changed here. I was pleasantly surprised, how much I've laughed. Really liked this one. View all 8 comments. Dec 07, Rachel E. Carter rated it liked it Shelves: I really liked Archer but I wasn't very drawn into the plot or the main character.
The author has a fun, fast-paced writing style that is easy to follow and plenty of humor to go around, but I was not a fan of the cliff-hanger ending for a first book in a series. I will get around to the sequel at some point but this is one of my more light-hearted fantasy reads. I think it would have been a hit for my middle school self: View all 6 comments. May 09, Natalie Monroe rated it it was ok Shelves: Elodie [his girlfriend] is stupid and dull. Also known as YA's embarrassing puberty years.
I tend to stay away from books published during that time since they're filled with unhealthy romantic relationships and girl-on-girl hate. YA now is like college you, all grown-up and cringing at the occasional photo of your tween self that po "Archer is smart and funny in addition to being hot.
YA now is like college you, all grown-up and cringing at the occasional photo of your tween self that pops up on Facebook. Hex Hall is juvenile YA.
The writing is a more inane version of Meg Cabot 's style, filled with cutesy internal monologues and pop culture references. The plot is an typical mystery type without much punch.
And the girl hate. God , the girl hate. They looked amazing in the fugly gym uniforms. I thought it was heading that direction for a while and was sadly let down. Yeah, sure, she passes Sophie her powers in the end. Cry me a river. What power? The power to tear each other down? It was ridiculous. Ethics aside, it's a damn good tactic.
The feminism in Hex Hall reminds me of this movie I watched recently: White Chicks. I know, it's been out for over a decade, but I wasn't interested until I saw a gif of one of the protagonists telling the other to hold his poodle, so he can beat someone up. It's not devoid of female bonding—Sophie and Jenna's relationship was nicely done—but it relies on knocking down other women to build the home team up.
In White Chicks, it's the fake Wilson sisters and their friends against the spoiled heiresses who are willing to sleep their way onto the catwalk.
In Hex Hall, it's Sophie and Jenna against the witches' coven who are obsessed with power and their looks. I'm sure you're all tired of me banging on about feminism, but it's something I unconsciously look for when I read. I weigh other factors too obviously—plot, pace, characters, the realistic aspect, etc, but gender equality is up there. If a book is awesome enough, I can overlook certain aspects, like Six of Crows 's arguably archetypal ending view spoiler [of a hero needing to rescue his girl.

I've seen the same story time and time again in books like Secret Lives , Evernight , Firespell , and it is just boring me.
The teachers don't seem to give a damn about discipline-explain to me why the werewolf who attacked Sophie on her first 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 from the werewolf!
Strange moral code from 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 this. View all 19 comments. Jul 06, Alexandra Bracken rated it it was amazing. I can't even tell you how many times I laughed out loud or had to put the book down because I was laughing so hard!
Sophie Mercer is now officially one of my favorite heroines and I just might be a little bit in love with Archer Cross, too. I can't say enough wonderful things about this book, only that you need to pick it up ASAP when it debuts next March. I'm only sad that I have to wait so long to read the next book in the series!! Apr 18, Daiane rated it liked it. Actual Rating: 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 fairy godmother. Ops, sorry And there she makes frien Actual Rating: And there she makes friend with this pinky girly vampire who is her new roommate view spoiler [And 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 that finally portraits that having a gay girl friend doesn't means she will be different, or that she won't like pink or be feminine or even that she will like you. Now what about you? Definitely something cutesy ending in ie. Sophie is too slow and sometimes she was too dumb. Although I kinda liked when she was really useless as a witch because, well, we are useless.
Happens to the best of us. Come back to University in a fortnight when your head feels a touch clearer. The day itself had felt terrific until that very moment that bloody Patronus had arrived, and now it only felt marred, ruined. Of all the people in the world he wanted with him on his birthday, Harry and Draco were the ones that Teddy had longed to see the most.
Because Harry had known how anxious Cambridge had made him; Teddy had firecalled him when he was at his lowest ebb, once nearly crying in frustration. Harry and Draco never did this.
His Godfather was Head Auror, and his cousin a world-renowned Alchemist, and like Harry was overly fond of saying, trouble had always been known to find them. Indeed, some wizards had long, unforgiving memories and Draco still wasn't trusted completely by some wizards outside of their tight social circle.
Wizards from all corners of the country had been venomous in their reaction. Members of the public accused Draco of using the Imperius Curse, of seducing the Chosen One to restore his own reputation. And they were married within a year. Teddy thought, amused.
They really were the most ridiculously perfect couple Teddy had ever seen, and even though they seemed have the most ferocious arguments, Teddy knew without a doubt that they would absolutely die for each other.
If Teddy was being honest and as the consummate Hufflepuff Headboy, he usually was then he'd admit that Harry and Draco had ruined him, just a little bit, for other people. Both of them still gorgeous even in their mid-thirties, still desperately in love, and just so perfect for each other. Its everything he knew he'd want from a relationship. Sadly, though, the rest of the wizarding world didn't know them like he, and their family did.
Some wizards couldn't forgive Draco for his past, or they hated Harry for choosing to forgive and love rather than hate. It hadn't helped that The Prophet had continued to spew out its vile lies, day after day.
As a result both Harry and Draco had become obsessive about their privacy. Grimmauld Place was their sanctuary, their safe space away from the pressures of the world. Very few wizards outside of their closest circle were invited to cross the threshold. The wards on the building were complicated, gnarled spells that Teddy had never been able to figure out; spells that sensed visitor and changed, morphing to repel them.
But today the spells have changed. Teddy thought they seemed to do the opposite, drawing his feet towards the building almost unconsciously. It must the whiskies. The walk had improved his mood, and when Teddy glanced at his refection the mirror showed his hair was back to his normal turquoise.
Thank Merlin for that. Hopefully Harry had finished whatever important job came up and they could get back to the pub. After all, a wizard only gets one nineteenth birthday. It felt strange to be there alone, with not even a House Elf in attendance. All around him flickered images of the family and friends that Harry and Draco held so sacrosanct; weddings, christenings and parties covering every surface, and many of these images were of Teddy himself. He saw himself smiling nervously in a shiny new uniform, about to board the Hogwarts Express for the very first time.
He saw himself giving his final speech as Head Boy, hair yellow to match his house colour, grinning and waving at Harry and Draco in the crowd. Which made this afternoons strange behaviour all the more inexplicable, really. He was utterly familiar with the feeling of their magic, and could feel it shimmering in the air surrounding him, feel the subtle magical vibration in the walls. Pink to match the heat building in his cheeks.
Teddy had enjoyed some lovely little shags at Hogwarts. He liked topping, and he knew he was brill at it, but what really thrilled Teddy was cock. There was nothing he liked more than a big thick cock. Teddy just loved them. Their weight, their heft. How smooth and heavy they felt in his hands. How addictive they were when they parted his arse cheeks and stretched him all out. Teddy loved swallowing them, loved the taste of spunk on his tongue. There was nothing in the world that excited him more than getting thoroughly shagged.
So Teddy was attuned enough with the sparking magic in the air; the way it rippled and caressed his skin, tickling the very edges of his consciousness, to know that his Godfather and his cousin were both getting quite thoroughly shagged right at that very moment. And yes, Teddy knew he should call out, should announce his arrival or ring for a house elf.
But he could feel his own cock harden, could feel it fill out heavy and warm inside his favourite jeans. A natural response to all the sex magic filling the air, he thought, palming the front of his trousers, taking a short breath. Fuck it, he was nineteen and shot through with lust. And Teddy knew, even as he thought them, that these were shit excuses.
But somewhere in this miasma of magic, infatuation and craving Teddy seemed to have lost the ability for rational thought. He made his way up the stairs, the luxurious thick pile of the carpet masking any sounds. Teddy could hear Draco too; could hear his slight groans that were slightly higher in pitch. Because Teddy had never seen anything like the vision of Harry fucking his husband.
Every time their bodies slapped together Draco was forced further up the bed, and Teddy just knew from the way magic radiated from his cousin in lewd, raw spirals of euphoria that Draco was completely lost in this. His cousin looked completely debauched, his hair mussy with sweat in a way Teddy could never have imagined before. Harry had taken him to pieces and Draco had absolutely fucking loved it. Magic rolled off him in a ferocious, predatory haze.
Teddy could feel physically how much Harry was investing in Draco, how intensely he wanted to be as good a lover as he could possibly be. Harry strived to be the best in all things, and fucking, it seemed, was no different. Harry was giving every part of himself to Draco, spreading his husband open wide and beautiful. And Teddy knew everything had changed, because this, this was an amazing sight.
This was intimacy, love and fucking on a whole new level. Merlin, in the face of this performance, he could hardly remember them. His cock was swollen and fat, pressing insistently on the cotton of his boxers. Without even being really aware of it, his hand had slipped down inside the waistband, and he'd rubbed his hand all over his own hard length.
Sliding his foreskin slowly down over the head, Teddy had rubbed a finger all over his slit. He pressed the heel of his palm against the base, enjoying the friction.
Harry hadn't seen him stood there yet, so this was his chance to leave, to run away. Because this is exactly the moment that Harry changed position, angling his hips so he really made Draco whine.
Harry was pulling his cock nearly all the way out, and Teddy could see the minute shake of his cousins head, the way Draco canted his arsehole forward every time he felt it leave him, utterly desperate to be filled to the very brim. The book opens with Sophie, a year-old witch, trying to help a girl who is crying because she has no date to the prom. Sophie does her best to cast a spell that will cause a desirable boy to fall for her friend, but things go awry and Sophie is exposed as a witch.
This is not the first time her powers -- and her lack of control over them -- have gotten her into trouble, so the Council, the body that governs Prodigium like herself, sentences her to Hecate Hall, a reform school for wayward supernatural beings, until she turns When she arrives at Hecate, which students have nicknamed Hex Hall, she immediately runs into trouble. Elodie, Anna and Chaston, a trio of black witches, are unhappy when she refuses to join their coven so they become set on making her life miserable.
She develops a crush on the handsome, charming Archer Cross, but he has already been claimed by Elodie, and her roommate is Jenna, the school's only vampire and an unwelcome presence at Hecate. The teachers also seem to have it in for her, especially the PE teacher, whom students have nicknamed the Vandy.
