Wishing on Wednesday [16]

Wishing and hoping, and thinking and praying...

"Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted.

Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident.

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?
 I really enjoyed the paranormal romp that was Hex Hall, it was a great overall read and I was so glad that Alli had introduced me [read this as badgered me endlessly to read] to the series. But it was Demonglass that made me fall in love with these books. I loved Sophie, her supporting cast and fell head over heels for Cal. Whereas I saw him as adorable in the first book and was totally ready for some Archer loving in Demonglass Rachel Hawkins made me do an entire about face, it was really Cal that I wanted! The second that I read the last page of Demonglass I was desperate to get my hands on Spellbound, it was a no-brainer that it's a must read. I have to know what happens to Sophie...and Cal. And of course the rest of the cast. But mostly Sophie and Cal. [I may not be entirely impartial...or at all.]


  1. I love snarky Archer. I need a boy I can be sarcastic with.

  2. I'm a sarcastic person too and that part of me is completely for Archer because I hate it when my sarcasm goes over someones' head. But there's something about Cal's sweetness.

  3. Me and my dad will be sitting around being sarcastic and my mom will totally not get it (sometimes get offended). I need someone who appreciate's snide remarks made during movies/sporting events/highly inappropriate moments.

    The scene in the basement, where they talk about if they went to normal school (trying to be vague on purpose) really made me melt more for Archer. I was like THE CUTENESS OF THEM AWWWW

  4. My Mom has gotten pretty good at reading my sarcasm as has my boyfriend so I'm lucky on that count. Though it does slip past them sometimes. I seem to have more problems with people I've just met or my roommates. Oh well, sarcasm isn't for everyone.

    Totally get the vague-ness. We mustn't ruin the awesome-ness for those that haven't read yet. THAT SERIOUSLY NEED TO. That was a really cute scene so I totally understand how Archer won for you. :]
