Waiting on Wednesday: “Spell Bound” by Rachel Hawkins


Waiting on Wednesday is a feature hosted over at Breaking the Spine that highlights upcoming releases that we really, really can’t wait to read!

Title: Spell Bound

Author: Rachel Hawkins

Publication Date: March 13, 2012 (Yes, I know this was yesterday and this is a little bit cheating BUT, read on for me to make sense.)

Summary from Goodreads: 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?

Why I’m Waiting: BECAUSE I HAD TO ORDER FROM AMAZON. Anything other than that, you guys clearly haven’t lived life correctly because you haven’t read these books. These books have EVERYTHING, I love to read. Great plot? Check. Great main character who also happens to be a real teen girl who’s not afraid to stand up for herself? Check. Hot guy(s)? Check check. Humor that STILL makes me laugh out loud, multiple rereads later? Check. This is a third in a series and the end of a trilogy, and AMAZON NEEDS TO MOVE FASTER BECAUSE AAGGGHHHH!!

Ahem. I’m … I’m going to move away from my keyboard slowly now. If you want to see me making MORE of a fool of myself about these books and others, the Hex Hall series was also mentioned in my Books are the Best Medicine – Here’s My Preferred Prescription! post a while back, and Spell Bound made my list of Books I Can’t Wait to Read in 2012.

  1. Awesome! After Demonglass’ epic cliffhanger ending, its a wonder why I haven’t chosen this as my WOW as well. I really can’t wait to read this! 😀 Great choice! (And good luck on waiting for you order from Amazon! :P)

    • The Demonglass cliffhanger was KILLER. I put it down and went “NOOOOO!!!” The kicker is that I’m supposed to be gone on the expected delivery date. Please, please, please move a liiiiiittle faster USPS!
