The Reading Obsession

Reviews of Fiction Books: Everything from Young Adult Romance to Crime Thrillers

Hex Hall - Rachel Hawkins My librarian told me to read this. At first, I was, like,"Okay.. Sure," and forgot about it. Then my friend borrowed it from me and she told me how awesome and amazing it was. Now, my friend usually has good judgement, so I decided to start reading it. I'm so glad I did.Sophie Mercer was a hilarious main character. Not the way where I'm laughing at her stupidity, but in the way that I laugh from her jokes. She is really easy to like. Her friendship with Jenna, her room mate, seems natural. Her personality is great. Sophie doesn't just pretend not to notice when something bad happens. She also doesn't blame everything on herself with no evidence.I really like Archer, even after what happened. He seems like a likable guy and I want to know what happens to him. He's funny and witty.The plot wasn't very serious. It was easy to guess who the villain was, but there were a few surprises, too. The entire story was light-hearted and a quick read.Hex Hall is very simple and easy to understand.This is one of the actually good paranormal academy books. I'll definitely read the next ones in the series.Find this review and more at
