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 get complicated when Harper starts falling for him--and discovers that David's own fate could very well be to destroy Earth.

With snappy banter, cotillion dresses, non-stop action and a touch of magic, this new young adult series from bestseller Rachel Hawkins is going to make y'all beg for more.

This book! Amazing! If you have read some of Rachel Hawkins' books, you know how funny her writing is and Rebel Belle is just as funny. First of, let me say how much I love Harper and David. I SHIP IT SO HARD!!! Anyway, this story is so action packed and funny. Basically my reaction for most of the book:

I love how Rachel Hawkins is able to ease tension by weaving in her wit. The mythology is so different and unique and had me enthralled instantly. The first couple pages are a little weird and confusing...but don't let that stop you! I love the main character Harper and how everyone can relate to her. I totally understood how spread thin she was with all her activities and shuffling her crazy schedule. My favorite, most meaningful part, is how she mentions how society thinks she's crazy because of all her activities. If your looking for quick, fun, action packed read, don't hesitate to pick this up! Fans of Hex Hall or other guardian/fantasy meets modern world stories will love it! One of my favorite reads of 2014!

Until next time fellow readers, have a good time reading y'all!
