I had heard many people saying that this had nothing to do with Hex Hall whatsoever, even though it was a spin-off, so I knew going in that there would be none of the characters I loved so much from Rachel’s first trilogy. And they were right – Sophie was only mentioned twice in passing – but that’s okay. I still enjoyed the world! And while it didn’t quite hold the magic that Hex Hall did, it was still a […]

I had been reeeaaally looking forward to this one. In fact, it was one of my most anticipated spring releases. And after seeing many gushing reviews from friends and blogs I follow, I was sure I’d love it. I’m sad to say that I was highly disappointed. It probably also didn’t help that I had just read it after an amazing book (Eternity Cure). Either way, my expectations were just set far too high. My first issue: The prose. It was […]

Big thanks to my loverly Nator twin for sending me a copy! <3  I don’t really know what I was expecting going into this one. But I was pleasantly surprised! I honestly didn’t think I was going to enjoy it as much as I did. First of all, it wasn’t as much about alien experimentation as much as it was a vengeance campaign against the high school mean girl. That’s what about 70% of this book consisted of. Not that […]

**CAUTION: Possible spoilers for Hex Hall if you have not read it!!** Holy hell weasel, this book was just as good (if not better) than Hex Hall!! Hawkins really brings it in the second installment with even more twists, danger, and betrayal. There were so many things I never saw coming! Demonglass was riveting, particularly in the last quarter – and okay, I admit it, I got a little misty in certain parts. But it also made me giggle a […]

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 is it with cheesy romances lately? Ugh. Honestly, this book could have easily been a 4 or 5 star if the instaluv hadn’t ruined it for me. I’m going to get my complaints out of the way first, because the premise for this one was AWESOME. First of all, before I even met Dante I was bracing myself for a cliche romance. Eleanor was talking about him and saying how he was devastatingly gorgeous, keeps to himself, and everyone […]
