Waiting on Wednesday (7) (+ Excerpt)

Hex Hall - Rachel Hawkins
*March 2nd, 2010 Hyperion

When Sophie Mercer turned thirteen, she 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 Hecate Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward prodigium, a.k.a. witches, fae, 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, tag-along ghost; and a new roommate, who happens to be the most-hated person and only vampire on campus. Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her friend Jenna is the number one suspect. Meanwhile, Sophie has a more personal shock to grapple with. Not only is her father the head of the prodigium council, he's the most powerful warlock in the world, and Sophie is his heir. 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.
Haven't done WoW in a looong while, but possibly starting again. Anyway - this week's pick is Rachel Hawkins' Hex Hall. Early reviews of it have been pretty amazing, so it'll be great to see how this one turns out. Plus, the release date's not that far away!

Also, be sure to drop by here to catch an early glimpse of the first chapter of Hex Hall.

But now that you've seen my pick, what are you waiting on, this Wednesday?

*WoW is hosted by Jill over at Breaking the Spine

I really do want to read this. I'm waiting on so many books, it's not even funny. I just heard of one called The Deadly Sister that looks AMAZING.


I don't know if you entered the Holey Donuts giveaway or not, but if you could check out this post and do so for my blog, it would mean a TON for my family and you can enter for the book afterwards too if you wish (White Cat by Holly Black ARC)!:

I would like to read a bit more soon. BTW, pretty good design you have here, but don’t you think design should be changed every few months?
