Monday's Muse~April's Reads

This week I thought I'd spotlight the book that was my reading muse for the month of April. Normally I read a few books a month but April was the wrap up month for my work in progress so I didn't get a chance to read as much as I normally do. It wasn't easy disciplining myself to write and edit instead of read this book. Rachel Hawkins pulls off a unique twist on the whole magic school idea, so unique in fact that I had trouble putting the book down.

All manner of creatures are present in this unconventional tale of magic, secrets, and surprises. Some of the twists will keep you guessing until the very end. The main character and even supporting characters pulled me in from the very first page. I enjoyed Hex Hall so much that I'm eagerly looking forward to the sequel!

  3. I remember seeing this book and wanting to read it, but I think there were some bad reviews that scared me off. Your review has given me courage, though, and I'm determined to read it now!

    (btw, did you change your blog background or am I just imagining things?)
