Even Recap: Meet & Greet with Rachel Hawkins, author of Hex Hall & School Spirits


Yesterday we were able to meet up with Rachel Hawkins over snacks and discuss her newest book, School Spirits, as well as her Hex Hall series and writing in general. We had such a fantastic time and we would like to thank  

for setting it up. This is the reason why we love blogging, meeting authors, other bloggers, and just great people!  If you haven't read my review of School Spirits, then you should. School Spirits is the spin off to Hex Hall. If you haven't read Hex Hall like me then don't worry, School Spirits is spoiler free for the Hex Hall series. 


At noon we went into the restaurant and found the girls, along with Rachel Hawkins all there. As soon as we sat we honestly couldn't stop laughing. Rachel Hawkins is hilarious! I know we say that to most of the authors we met, but Rachel? I don't think I've laughed as much with anyone as I did with her. We asked a ton of questions that we've been wanting to ask (like the big one that seems to be circulating which is whether she will write a sequel to School Spirits or not) as well as just discuss the characters, especially Dex! 


Ok ok, I know you want the answer to that question and it is that right now, she isn't writing one but it is a possibility. In the meantime I have all three of my newly signed Hex Hall books to keep me occupied! 

We then got our books signed and then took some awesome photos with all the girls and headed back to Chapters to wait for the official signing.
So that was all! A pretty fantastic day don't you think?

School Spirits (School Spirits, #1)
School Spirits by Rachel Hawkins

Fifteen-year-old Izzy Brannick was trained to fight monsters. For centuries, her family has hunted magical creatures. But when Izzy’s older sister vanishes without a trace while on a job, Izzy's mom decides they need to take a break.

Izzy and her mom move to a new town, but they soon discover it’s not as normal as it appears. A series of hauntings has been plaguing the local high school, and Izzy is determined to prove her worth and investigate. But assuming the guise of an average teenager is easier said than done. For a tough girl who's always been on her own, it’s strange to suddenly make friends and maybe even have a crush.

Can Izzy trust her new friends to help find the secret behind the hauntings before more people get hurt?

  9. I really hope she does write a sequel in the end. I'm glad that it's still a possibly, at least. :) Given the amount of humour in her books, I'm not surprised that she's funny in real life! Glad you had a great time!
