Rebel Belle by Rachel Hawkins- Book Review

Rebel Belle Rating: Like, 4.8 stars...

Summary (From Goodreads): Harper Price, peerless Southern belle, was born ready for a Homecoming tiara. But after a strange run-in at the dance imbues her with incredible abilities, Harper's destiny takes a turn for the seriously weird. She becomes a Paladin, one of an ancient line of guardians with agility, super strength and lethal fighting instincts. Just when life can't get any more disastrously crazy, Harper finds out who she's charged to protect: David Stark, school reporter, subject of a mysterious prophecy and possibly Harper's least favorite person. But things start to get complicated when Harper starts falling for him-and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

Review: Ohmigod this book. I really wasn't expecting to love it so much. First of all, David Stark. I LOVE HIM. Seriously, new favorite fictional person. He's geeky and funny and smart and awkward and all the stuff in my last post put together and greatness!!! Even if you don't like the synopsis of the book, it doesn't matter. HE'S JUST SO FANTASTICAL. Okay enough fangirling (for the next few sentences). The rest of the characters are actually very realistic and likable. Rachel Hawkins writing is very teen-like, but also very girly. If your a guy, you probably wouldn't like this book quite as much. Anyway, the ancient mythology this book is based around is very interesting. And even after me being obsessed with ancient mythology, I realized I didn't know much about Paladins, Mages and Oracles. Also, this book is a series and I can't wait for the next book! If you're wondering, it doesn't end on a cliff-hanger, but does have some unanswered questions for the next book.

My fangirling: DAVID STARK IS SO SO SO AMAZING I LOVE HIM. READ THIS BOOK! OH MY GOODNESS I AM DYING. ALSO HIS LAST NAME IS FANTASTIC I WOULD TOTALLY MARRY HIM. I AM A GEEK TOO! I LOVE YOU!

Sorry about that.

Recommended?: Haven't I said enough? Ummm... YES. Well, mostly for girls. It's kinda romantic and girly, but if you're okay with that then you should read this book.

Thanks so much for reading!!! I hope you go pick up Rebel Belle because awesomenesses. Goodbye!!
