MY THOUGHTS


I've seen this book, many times, over the years and never felt the need to read it...the cover really didn't impress me.  When searching for a shorter demon book for Halloween Bingo, I came across this, and it has good reviews so I thought, why not?  It turns out, it wasn't that bad...and I even kind of liked it.  I guess I was in the right mood for it.

Basically what you get with this book is...a school for the supernatural, some witchy girls, a cute boy, a vampire roommate, a murder-y-ish mystery, a ghost, and a really cheeky and fairly kick-ass heroine who isn't afraid to list her own shortcomings. Plus there is 3 more books in the series.  I don't know if I'll ever listen to them...but, hey, I didn't think I would ever listen to this book, either.
