Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Hey guys, just finished Hex Hall so let's get down to it! Meet Sophie, a witch trying to get through high school at her prom night. She thinks she is doing the right thing by doing a love spell for a lonely girl, but everything goes wrong and she is sent to a private boarding school to learn to control her powers. She meets three other witches like her, but they are witches with a capital B. They try to recruit her, to no avail, and she instantly becomes their enemy. Her new room mate, a vampire that loves the colour pink, is anything but normal, being the only vampire in school. Then theirs Archer, the strange warlock boy that is dating the enemy. But hey, there's some romance there that you would see coming of course. Throw in a few murder attempts on some witches and you got yourself a pretty crazy story. But that's just another day at Hex Hall I guess. So this was an okay book, for one of my back up books while waiting for a new shipment of books to come in. 

Cinder by Marissa Meyer

Hey everyone! So I just finished a few book I got and I thought I would update for you! Above is the picture of Cinder, by Marissa Meyer. It was a pretty good read, recommended to me by my friend who had read it a few months ago. To be honest I got it two months ago and just couldn't bring myself to read it until now. The story follows Cinder, a cyborg teenage girl struggling to survive in the world. It follows an almost Cinderella story the way she deals with her mother and evil step sister. But there are a lot of changes. She has one sister who is loving to her, until she catches the plague, a deadly disease that is killing hundreds of thousands of people all over the world. Her step mom, blaming Cinder for her sisters certain death, offers her to the government for testing for the cure to the disease. There Cinder learns some pretty crazy things about herself and finds herself getting closer to the prince, who is kind and strong when he is around her. But she has secrets

Blood Red Road by Moira Young

Hey Everyone! Just finished Blood Red Road by Moira Young. This book was interesting, though still good. The grammer is horrible, but it is written as though the girl never learned to speak or spell. Which is exactly what fits the main Character Saba. Saba lives in a isolated town with her dad, her twin brother Lugh and her sister Emmie. One day 5 men on horses come and kidnap her brother and kill her father. Saba sets out on a crazy journey to save him and meets some interesting people along the way. One of my favorite characters, which doesn't get all that interesting until book 2, is DeMalo, the Tonton leader who has a thing for Saba. I would most certainly recommend reading both books in the series, but be warned about the writing. You have to read a lot into the book before you start to get used to the writing. But I would say you should read through it all the way. 4 our of 5 stars.
