    Once again, my chest tightened, and there was that weird fluttering sensation that was like butterflies But it couldn t be butterflies I did not have butterflies over David Stark.25% of the way in, I was sure I would give this book a 4, but I ended up wanting to fling this book at Harper s head This book may be really, really cute, but overall, it s just an overextended love triangle without much of a plot Nothing of importance happens in this book.This was not a bad book by any means I absolute [...]

    Girls night in And by that, I mean me, this book and the cat, but shh view spoiler hide spoiler This book is pure entertainment Silly, hilarious fun I ve suddenly realised how hard it is to review a book like this because I cannot lay out the details of some amazingly complex plot or tell you about the deep philosophical journey you will be taken on or talk about a rich new fantasy world This book has none of those things And yet, it is easily one of the most enjoyable books I ve picked up in a [...]

    4.5 STARSWell, that was fucking awesome Er, sorry I mean, effing awesome Not sure the MC of this novel would approve of my swearing in a review You see, Harper Price is a southern belle, raised on good manners and tradition Sure, she might be a little vain, and than a little self centered, but that doesn t necessarily make her a bad person In fact, she has a sort of self deprecating sense of humor that makes it pretty hard to hate the girl, regardless of her snobbery She reminds me a lot of one [...]

    This is, quite frankly, the best book I ve read this year Not including when I reread one of my favourite books P It s funny I laughed out loud a number of times , it s heartfelt I felt so bad for our main character quite a few times , it s adorable so many cute moments between our love interests , it s aggravating WHY , it s surprising I didn t see a bunch of those plot twists coming and it s exciting WHAT A RIDE At the heart of a book like this, when you have a heroine who s narrating the stor [...]


    Maureen

    A lot of people raved about this book and recommended it to me, but for some reason I still wasn t expecting much out of this book GLAD IT SURPRISED ME It was seriously SO much better than I was expecting I loved Harper s voice in this She wasn t over the top southern like in some books i ve read cough BEAUTIFUL CREATURES cough but she was the perfect mixture of sassy and awesome and hilarious and southern.The story was really original too I mean there were some typical YA novel cliches, but the [...]

    I deem it appropriate to start the year with a good laugh, so welcome 2016 Let s get started I was bringing this by to say sorry for yesterday To both of you I added as Saylor moved forward You know, for the the car driving and the recklessness, and the the grabbing With my free hand I started making this clutching gesture I was talking about grabbing David s shirt, but it looked like I was milking a cow.Or worse This was racy And yes, I admit it I laughed like an idiot Here and in so many other [...]

    Looking back, none of this would have happened if I d brought lip gloss the night of the Homecoming Dance.That is the first line of the book With just that, I already started having bad feels about it My interest even died with that sinple first line The ironic thing is what Harper the perfect Belle says is true If she hadn t forgotten her goddamned lip freaking gloss, there would have been no story.But really, was there a story If I remember well, the book started with Harper and her friends at [...]

    4 Loved it stars This book was so much fun A breath of fresh air I actually read this book while eating popcorn No kidding If you re looking for something entertaining and purely enjoyable, I highly recommend you Rebel Belle It also contains a little bit of creepy and or strange scenes that are only going to make you want to read and of it.Harper might seem to you, at the beggining of the story, a little too girly and vain, but she s actually not that way She has her reasons why Homecoming is [...]

    melissa413readsalot.cWho would have thunk you could be at your homecoming and end up taking someone out with the heel spike of your pink shoe other things.All Harper wanted was to get her crown and have a good time with her friends and boyfriend Ryan But.at wasn t going to happen Here is a tip, if you forget your lipstick, don t borrow from anyone else and run off to the bathroom to apply there are weird things that happen in bathrooms Unless of course you really want to become a Paladin and hav [...]

    4.25 stars Buddy read with Kat Oh my god, this was so much fun Me and Kat should ve just picked this book a while ago I loved all the characters, I loved the romance I found it adorably hilarious and I loved the cool little plot Ahhhh I loved this book As if you can t already tell It s so funny, it s been a while since I laughed this hard while reading a book One thing that made me love this book was how the romance stuff happened Harper is already in a relationship, and no, there was no cheati [...]

    4.5 I adored this book It s a cute, funny, realistic book that packs a huge punch This book almost reads like contemporary, but has an underlying fantasy plot I really loved the characters The main character Harper is a southern girl, who is very dedicated to her school, studies, friends, boyfriend, and community If that isn t enough to handle, she is thrown into the position of the Paladin and discovers a whole magical world she never knew existed.I really loved reading about Harper and it was [...]

    The only reason I did not put this book down after the first 30 pages was that I wanted to be wrong I wanted my friend to be right in saying that this was the best book she read this year I wanted to prove that I could like books with this type of cover and content, but I failed Let s face it I prefer my characters complex and my plot twisty If that s a real word.

    Also posted on Rowan Reads and Raves.You might not know this about me, but I m actually not a huge girly girl I don t really like pink, I don t wear makeup, I wouldn t dream of casually wearing heels, and I think beauty pageants are just ridiculous Instead, I usually rock jeans and a nerdy t shirt, spend my time reading fantasy books or gaming with my guy friends, and I swear worse than my sixteen year old brother So just looking at this cover had me a little hesitant, and when I read the summar [...]


    Jilly

    The author described this book as a cross between Legally Blonde and The Terminator , and that is a good description I would have used Legally Blonde and Buffy, the Vampire Slayer myself, though This is a seriously fun book Our hero is Harper, a proper southern belle She is an over achiever and completely in love with herself At first, she is a little annoying, but once you get to know her better, you end up loving her It just has that funny, quirky feel when there is this girl in pink suddenly [...]


    Melannie :)

    Well, well well.In the sense of being a little bit decent after the review I am going to give I have rounded up the rating to 3 stars.So I don t want to say I didn t like this book because the characters weren t funny enough, and actually, Harper and David as a couple were adorable but I am kind of disappointed still I know because I ve read Hex Hall, Ms Hawkins first book, and I know how awesome of a story she can provide and this time I just think it fell flat.The premise of the book isn t tha [...]


    Daiane

    Actual rating 3.5 starsAll superheroes have origin stories, like how Bruce Wayne s parents get killed and he goes to Tibet or whatever, and Superman is an alien, and Spiderman had that radioactive spider Me I kissed a janitor in the school bathroom.This book has one of the most interesting premisses I ve seen It promises some fluffy contemporary story mixed with all the action and badassery you can ask Come on Paladins We almost never get to see plots like this Plus, the girl who has to protect [...]

    5 stars Loved it I am so blown away by this book.Wow I went into it thinking it would be all cutsey and girly but it was so different A fresh breath of air I also loved the romance between the characters, nerd vs all round cheerleader.So great.I did not know where the story was going to take me but Hawkins has managed to combine paranormal with some chic lit romance and fighting for an awesome trilogy.I really loved the characters David is funny and a bit weird and geeky.Usually in books male ch [...]
