Spell Bound (Hex Hall #3) by Rachel Hawkins
Publication Date: March 13, 2012

Hailed as “impossible to put down,” the Hex Hall series has both critics and teens cheering. With a winning combination of romance, action, magic and humor, this third volume will leave readers enchanted. 

Just as Sophie Mercer has come to accept her extraordinary magical powers as a demon, the Prodigium Council strips them away. Now Sophie is defenseless, alone, and at the mercy of her sworn enemies—the Brannicks, a family of warrior women who hunt down the Prodigium. Or at least that’s what Sophie thinks, until she makes a surprising discovery. The Brannicks know an epic war is coming, and they believe Sophie is the only one powerful enough to stop the world from ending. But without her magic, Sophie isn’t as confident. 

Sophie’s bound for one hell of a ride—can she get her powers back before it’s too late?

Hex Hall and Demonglass were among my favorite reads last year. Rachel Hawkins has such humorous characters and manages to integrate some deep stuff into her cheery stuff into the last book. I want to know what happens after *spoiler retraced* in Demonglass.

Timepiece (Hourglass #2) by Myra McEntire
Publication Date: June 12, 2012
A threat from the past could destroy the future. And the clock is ticking...

Kaleb Ballard's relentless flirting is interrupted when Jack Landers, the man who tried to murder his father, timeslips in and attacks before disappearing just as quickly. But Kaleb has never before been able to see time travelers, unlike many of his friends associated with the mysterious Hourglass organization. Are Kaleb's powers expanding, or is something very wrong?

Then the Hourglass is issued an ultimatum. Either they find Jack and the research he's stolen on the time gene, or time will be altered with devestating results.

Now Kaleb, Emerson, Michael, and the other Hourglass recruits have no choice but to use their unusual powers to find Jack. But where do they even start? And when? And even if they succeed, it may not be enough...

The follow-up to Hourglass, Timepiece blends the paranormal, science fiction, mystery, and suspense genres into a nonstop thrill ride where every second counts.

I loved Hourglass. Timepiece is the sequel. Kaleb is my favorite character. It's in Kaleb's point of view. 'Nuff said. The cover alone would have me hooked.

    1. For shame! You should read the Hex Hall series. They're great. :D

  4. Nice picks! Still haven't read the Hex Hall series, so can't believe they're on book 3 already!

    1. It seems a lot slower for those of us who are reading them. XD I like reading series when all the books are out.
