Hex Hall
By Rachel Hawkins

I started reading this since two or three months ago. Because i had lot of things to be done, and some reasons, i finally finished reading this book last week.

Actually i read this book because one of my favorite writer, Becca Fitzpatrick, gave a testimonial about this book. As i surfed about this hook, i think it isn't too famous. After all, this book is quite good, but not the best. My stage of a best book is : 1) makes me cannot stop reading, 2) the story, 3) movie adaption.
For examples, Hunger Games trilogy. It's not the best story -really. I thought it was, but don't you think the story is too prolix? But i said it is very good yet the best so far because i can't stop reading that! I slept late because of reading those trilogy. Yes the story was prolix, but surprisingly, it makes me even more curious and involved by the emotion to know what's next. And for Hex Hall, the story is fine yet good, but the fact, i didn't feel curious at all, that's why i finished this book for so long.

Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.

By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.

As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her.

The story is about witches, vampire, wolves -again. These creatures seem so famous nowadays. But it mixed with touch of romance and teenage humor. This book is very light to read and fun. It is like the fusion of J.K. Rowling and Meg Cabot. If you are not the big fan of those two , well i am not suggested you to read this book or maybe you'll get bored.

Ordinary girl met a very handsome yet famous boy. Surprisingly the boy falls in love too with her. Old story. And always. The world is truly cruel.
She is the kind of girl that every teenage book describes of. Not popular, problematic and weirdo. But somehow, she's the hero of her own. She isn't my favorite character, but i wish that the ending of this book will be good for her romance. I always wish that for every main character in the book.

I always capture Archer Cross as a tall-thin good looking boy with messy hair like Andrew Garfield, i don't know why. That's sick.

“Archer Cross, resident bad boy and total heartthrob. Warlock. Every girl here is at least, like, half in love with him. Crushing on Archer Cross might as well be a class.” 
Popular boy, is a popular boy. No need to describe, every girl, especially who love to read, always know, right?  The trick that Rachel Hawkins bring to make this book more fun was seen in Archer Cross character. Well, now i am curious, who is the real Archer Cross?

Surprisingly, she is my favorite character. It said, she had a very pretty hair like a goddess. Ah, of course you know the reason why i like her. 

It's quite funny to know a vampire love pink. And those pink hair.. Maybe i should imagine Xia Xue? lol. I like it when a book describe a character that different from other books. Who thinks a vampire had to be completely pink, kind, and........ gay?

She makes this book alive. The horror side of this book is actually her. The first she came out in the story, it creeps my neck bristle. I imagine her, standing in a dimly lit hallway of old England school -or Hogwarts, or some castle in Europe, with her big eyes, looking at me creepy. Ow, well.


I had bought the second book, Demon Glass!
Gonna finished that soon.
