55 of 111 Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins

Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes. Her non-gifted mother has been as supportive as possible, consulting Sophie's estranged father--an elusive European warlock--only when necessary. But when Sophie attracts too much human attention for a prom-night spell gone horribly wrong, it's her dad who decides her punishment: exile to Hex Hall, an isolated reform school for wayward Prodigium, a.k.a. witches, faeries, and shapeshifters.
By the end of her first day among fellow freak-teens, Sophie has quite a scorecard: three powerful enemies who look like supermodels, a futile crush on a gorgeous warlock, a creepy tagalong ghost, and a new roommate who happens to be the most hated person and only vampire student on campus. Worse, Sophie soon learns that a mysterious predator has been attacking students, and her only friend is the number-one suspect.
As a series of blood-curdling mysteries starts to converge, Sophie prepares for the biggest threat of all: an ancient secret society determined to destroy all Prodigium, especially her (From Back Cover)

This was a quick but fun read. I've only heard good things about The Hex Hall series (there are 2 so far). I was in the mood for something different so I thought I'd give it a try. I really liked Sophie's 'voice'. She had a nice snarky attitude that was fun to read. 
There were a few places where I felt like the characters seemed inconsistent, especially in the scenes with Sophie and Archer. They seemed to jump between being friends, crushes and being awkward over and over. 
Overall, Hex Hall was an ok start for me, I'll definitely read the second in the series but I hope to learn more about the characters and hopefully have some of the gaps in the first book filled in. 

( 3.5 ) A good start with lots of potential.
