I love YA urban fantasy and dystopian. I also read some middle grade and historical fiction. I apologize for any spelling errors. If any of my ratings/Posts don't match up its because I just imported them from Goodreads and need to adjust them.
I'm on Instigram as Readinglife.
POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD
What started out as a promising novel slowly but surely fell from what could a have been a 5 star rating.
Hex Hall starts out as a fun, breezy read. The characters (for the most part) were well developed and believable.
But Ms. Hawkins fell prey to these common YA tropes:
Group of gorgeous but mean spirited girls, one of whom
Is dating the main characters crush and
They try to get the MC to join their elite group
And there was Slut-Shaming.
Which was of course directed at previously mentioned mean girls.
So I just kinda got sick of the slut-shaming and for a book about witches and other magical creatures, there was more high school drama then there was magic.
