For those of you who are new around here, I occasionally review books. And, since I know how much work goes into writing one–I only like to talk about the stories that made me fall in love with them. Who doesn’t love a book that rocks, right?
A couple of weeks ago, my twitter feed was all abuzz with one story. Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins. Well, I headed out to my local bookstore to pick it up–because everyone told me it was the kind of story I’d fall in love with.
And let me just tell you–they were right.
When you read YA Paranormal stories, you assume that most of the time if it’s a dark subject matter, then it won’t be fun and snarky. But, if I’m going to read an entire novel, then I want to laugh out loud at least three times.
Hex Hall made me laugh on like every other page. Even in the scary parts–now that’s talent.
What’s it about? Reform school for witches, fairies, shapeshifters, and such. How is that not enough to get you to go read it?
Oh, and the author’s pretty cool, too. She tweets too, and when I got her to follow me back, I considered it a personal win. 🙂
