Why I'm Waiting?
This will be Rachel Hawkins' new series starting next year and I cannot wait. Earlier this year I hadn't read any of her work before, even though I'd been meaning to read Hex Hall for a long time. I then received an ARC of School Spirits and really fell for her writing, style and storytelling talents. This book sounds brilliant - super abilities, action, a love interest and a hidden secret. And it's all set in the South which I'm always fascinated by with a gorgeous cover to boot!
