Demonglass - Rachel Hawkins I could not wait to get my hands on this book! I’ve been just about dying to read it ever since I finished Hex Hall and couldn’t even wait for my preorder of the paperback version to get here before I practically tackled my friend’s copy from the library. The waiting to get a copy has been killing me and I am so very, very glad that I’ve finally read it! Not only was it was a great continuation of the first book, but Hawkins’ writing improved immensely, which was one of my primary complains about the first book, and not to mention perhaps the greatest part of all, for those of you who remembered my review of the first book–all the Cal! I was just all-around thrilled with this book, and it was so much better than I first anticipated and everything I could have hoped for it to be! I don’t know if I’ll make it until March for the third book to come out, since this one had about the worst cliffhanger I’ve ever read in my life–but still fabulous, nonetheless!Read more?
