Hex Hall

Reviewed by Milly 13 yrs. old - Book Reviewer and Sometimes Baker
Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins is a novel about a girl (I mean Witch) who uses a love spell and... well, it went wrong. Really wrong. So she was sent to Hecate, a boarding school for witches, warlocks, shape-shifters and fairies (the kids call it Hex Hall) as a punishment. But everything is not how it seems. Not too long ago a student had her blood drained. Oh, and the best part is Sophie's roommate, Jenna, is a vampire.
Hex hall is a mystery/fantasy. I would like to say which it is more than the other, but, it is equally a mystery as it is a fantasy.
This is an awesome book but it got a bit boring towards the middle. So I give it out of 5 paper dolls:
One of the main reasons that I didn't give it a 4 is because there is no cat even though it is clearly featured on the cover and is also on the second book cover as well. A black cat would have definitely scored an extra doll. However, even without the cat, I will still read the next book in the series, Demon Glass.

Tiger's Curse

Reviewed by Tilly 9yrs. old (nearly 10!) - Tween Book Reviewer and Sometimes Writer

Tiger's Curse is about a teen girl named Kelsey who lives with her foster parents. Kelsey decides she needs a job for the school holidays, so she gets a couple of days at the circus. Her biggest worry is that she might have to clean up elephant poo. In the circus she sees a rare white and black tiger called Ren, named after an ancient Indian prince. One day a mysterious and strange man comes to the circus and wants to buy Ren. The circus owner said yes to his great offer. This man also asked Kelsey if she could come on the trip to look after Ren, because she's has such a special bond with the white tiger. Kelsey doesn't know yet how special her and Ren's bond really is.

During their journey, Kelsey and Ren get lost in a forest in India. Is Ren an ordinary white tiger or does he have a trick up his paws? This story is mystery, adventure, and romance, and it is so good it should be made into a movie. If it does I'm definitely watching it!

The mystery is to solve the curse and get Ren back to normal. And is Ren the only special tiger?

I rate this book out of 5....
Yes, that's right 7 out of 5 it's that fantastic!

Oh wait, don't forget Milly told you about my birthday this weekend - when we go to Supernova.
