Waiting on Wednesday [8]

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme that spotlights eagerly awaited upcoming releases. It's hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick: Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins.

***

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 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.

Wowowow!

Three words: MAGIC BOARDING SCHOOL!

I am freaky obsessed with Harry Potter, mostly because I love Hogwarts so much. So the mention of magic boarding school in this blurb practically has me frothing at the mouth in excitement. All I know is I WANT THIS BOOK, badly.

Witches, shapeshifters, and faeries sound like an awesome mixture, and I'm really intrigued by the whole conspiracy/ ancient secret society element. Pretty much everything in this summary has peaked my interest!

And as a bonus, the cover just came out yesterday, and I think it's lovely. The blue on the bottom is quite striking as well-- I just love it! I really can't wait for this one :)

Release Date: March 2, 2010
