Hex Hall - Rachel Hawkins This book is not particularly well-written. The characters and world-building are severely underdeveloped, the plot is rather predictable, and yet the book moves really fast so I didn't get too bored with it. The author has a sense of humour which I did find amusing some of the time, but it often seemed like she was more concerned with making funny and snarky comments rather than crafting a solid tale with a well thought out plot, fleshed out characters, and a believable setting. That said, I might just pick up the next book because I'm kind of curious about the obligatory dark, handsome bad boy male lead. (Also, why are all the other reviews comparing this to Harry Potter? All that is similar about the two books is that they both take place at a boarding school for magical people. But Hex Hall is nowhere near Harry Potter calibre.)
