Die For Me by Amy Plum
I have always enjoyed reading about witches since I was little. There has always been something really intriguing about them and I was jealous of how they could cast a spell and make things easier.
I remember the first time I watched Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Willow almost instantly became my favourite character because of who she was. A little shy but a very good friend and she always had the best intentions even though she made mistakes sometimes.
Sophie the main character in Hex Hall reminds me a little of Willow and she has some of the same qualities as well as a great wit, maybe a little immature at times but she’s a very likeable protagonist.
This book has a lot of elements that was familiar to me and it had witches, werewolves, vampires and fairies which I have seen in many of the other books I have read.
The setting “The school” was also something that’s seen before and at times I found the book predicting.
One of the good things is that there are enough original things to make the story interesting and that makes the difference so it becomes memorable from other books in the same genre and setting it aside from many other books with the same theme.
I read this book in one setting. It's an easy book to get through and I was never bored.
There were a lot of twists and turns along the way, some I guessed and some I didn’t.
I think Rachel Hawkins did a fantastic job at keeping me entertained and there were some really fun moments in between.
