Reread this book for about the third time now, and I still love it and all, but this time I found a note in it from "Sophie and Jenna." I signed it of course! About the book, I don't read many others like it (the ones that involve all sorts of creatures, the ones I read focus on only one kind), but I really like it. I personally find it interesting, humorous, and just an overall good read. I never finished the series when I read Hex Hall probably more than a year ago now, I've only reread it, and a part of Demonglass, but this time I'm determined to get to the end. Anyway, #notesinbooks and if you find this copy, I'm the one who wrote her name in pen!

Ever since reading such a great book at I am Number Four, I haven't quite found many good books; they all seemed rather dull after all the action in that series. However, this book was one of the few books that i actually liked! (Michael Vey was another) This is actually one of my favorite books now and I love it! Sorry about all the fancy language i am in a really weird mood... ;) But I recommend this book to all! P.S. Even though this book doesn't end with the biggest cliffhanger, still read the other books; they're super good! - See more at: http://omaha.bibliocommons.com/item/show/1498349060#sthash.kb0icCRs.dpuf

I really enjoyed this book. It had exactly the right amount of humor :) By the way...did anyone else find a note from "Sophie and Jenna" in their book? #notesinbooks

I really enjoyed this. It's not especially unique - it's a girl at a secret high school for paranormal creatures, and there are lots of those out there (Vampire Academy, Born at Midnight, Evernight, Immortals, etc). But the voice is great and the main character is fun - she reminds me of a YA Sookie Stackhouse. There is romance but it's not swoony and over-the-top. The plot is good, and the ending is exciting. It's also a very fast read.

I thought this book was really really good ! if you liked this one then read the 2nd and 3rd

This book was just average in my opinion. I just couldn't bring myself to like or sympathize with Sophie at all (though I didn't hate her either). It annoyed me how easily she fell in love with Archer Cross, who, by the way, I didn't think was all that hot. Their entire relationship just seemed to be a retelling of the unoriginal cliche where new girl falls for the resident bad boy. Now despite this, I do honestly believe many will find this to be a very enjoyable book, I just couldn't get past Sophie and Archer's flat characters and the fast-paced, forced romance. I've definitely read better.

This book was full of interesting characters that I really liked as well as plot twists that keep you guessing throughout the story.

After reading this one, I just had to read the next one. I have always hated cliff hangers as an ending for a book, but Rachel Hawkins made me like it. This is a perfect start to an series :)

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.

After totally blowing a prom night spell, Sophie is required to attend a reformation school for faeries, witches, etc. She then falls in love with a handsome warlock, has 3 of the most popular, prettiest girls as her enemies, and a vampire as her roommate/best friend. Sophie later discovers that her dad is the head of the Council who sent her to Hex hall, and that an organization called The Eye wants to destroy Hex hall and especially, her. How will things turn out?

Sophie has tried one too many times to help the hapless teens in her school and is now required to attend a reformation school for the paranormally inclined. Her bum luck? Granted a vampire roommate who may be linked to the death of her last roommate. She falls in love / hate with the school's resident hottie, comes afoul of the wanna-be dark witch coven and learns far more about herself than she ever wanted to.

“The "Holy-crap-that's-a-lot-of-pink" Zone would have been a more accurate description. I don't know what I was expecting a vampire's room to look like. Maybe lots of black, a bunch of books by Camus...oh, and a sensitive portrait of the only human the vamp had ever loved, who had no doubt died of something beautiful and tragic, thus dooming the vamp to an eternity of moping and sighing romantically. What can I say? I read a lot of books. But this room looked like it had been decorated by the unholy lovechild of Barbie and Strawberry Shortcake.” ― Rachel Hawkins, Hex Hall
