Review: Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Review: Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

I devoured this book within 3 hours. I think that’s a record for me! I don’t finish a book in one day very often, but it usually takes me 4 or 5 hours for a 300 page book. Hex Hall was just that amazing!   I loved Sophie. She was a very easy lead to relate to – seemingly average, not the most popular and maybe even a bit nerdy. She was strong willed and sarcastic, and even though she […]

What a quick and fun read! I devoured this one in a single sitting.

I found myself smiling or giggling to myself regularly at the snarky and creative things she said. I loved her journey through solving the clues – the trouble she gets into […]

Review: Half Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

Review: Half Blood by Jennifer L. Armentrout

It seems like lately I’ve been disappointed in books that everyone is raving about. I’m not saying I didn’t like this one, because I did. I just didn’t love it the way I hoped I would. Obsidian still remains my favorite Armentrout novel! I don’t really have much to say about this book, sadly. I liked the premise, I liked the characters, I just wasn’t wowed by it. Alex was a pretty cool lead, but I didn’t really feel a […]
