Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Image Detail

Three years ago, Sophie 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 mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her. This was a really fun book, and the sequel picks up right where the first one leaves off.

Elantris by Brandon Sanderson

Book Jacket
Elantris is an awesome fantasy book. The great city of Elantris was a place where ordinary people who magically became transformed into semi-gods lived. Then one day the magic was gone and all the people turned into semi-dead. Sarene is coming to marry the prince of the city next to Elantris, but upon arrival finds herself a widow because the prince is supposedly dead. You’ll have to read the book to find out what happens, but it is definitely worth reading!

The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society by Mary Ann Shaffer and Annie Barrows

Book Jacket
This is a sweet book written in letter format about a woman who finds herself with a group of new friends on a distant island. She becomes important to all of them, as they become to her, and she finally decides to pay them a visit. There’s a little romance and a little fun. I would recommend this book for anyone (probably girls) who want a cute book that makes you feel happy when you’re done reading.

Shadow Song by Dorothy Keddington

Cole is a popular singer and Megan starts to fall for him as soon as she hears his music. But of course, the path of love never runs smoothly.

This book is a great, clean romance, with some darker undertones that will keep it interesting. Dorothy Keddington always writes a good romance.
