The Ex Hex: A Novel | Erin Sterling
187 posts | 165 read | 5 reading | 88 to read
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins, writing as Erin Sterling, casts a spell with a spine-tingling romance full of wishes, witches, and hexes gone wrong. Nine years ago, Vivienne Jones nursed her broken heart like any young witch would: vodka, weepy music, bubble bathsand a curse on the horrible boyfriend. Sure, Vivi knows she shouldnt use her magic this way, but with only an orchard hayride scented candle on hand, she isnt worried it will cause him anything more than a bad hair day or two. That is until Rhys Penhallow, descendent of the towns ancestors, breaker of hearts, and annoyingly just as gorgeous as he always was, returns to Graves Glen, Georgia. What should be a quick trip to recharge the towns ley lines and make an appearance at the annual fall festival turns disastrously wrong. With one calamity after another striking Rhys, Vivi realizes her silly little Ex Hex may not have been so harmless after all. Suddenly, Graves Glen is under attack from murderous wind-up toys, a pissed off ghost, and a talking cat with some interesting things to say. Vivi and Rhys have to ignore their off the charts chemistry to work together to save the town and find a way to break the break-up curse before its too late.

Book 102📚 5⭐️

Just the most perfect spooky rom-com!🖤 I also had no idea she also writes under “Rachel Hawkins” - can‘t wait to read a different genre from her!

Believe the hype on this one - I loved everything about it! Vivi and Gwyn are witches I wish I had in my coven - what a hoot🖤😂

A may have pushed through finishing this today because The House Across the Lake just arrived and I can‘t wait to dive in😭👏🏻

I‘m rating this book on the story only. It was pretty good but not great. I listened to the audiobook and couldn‘t stand the narrator. At all. I would have liked the book much more if I had read it instead of listened. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

1. The Ex-Hex (a black cover, stars and witches) definitely reflected the story accurately
2. Anything to do with witches…I‘m in! 🧙‍♀️

A rom-com with spells, witches and hexes. Vivienne, a young witch hexed her then boyfriend (Rhys) nine years ago. Rhys returns to Graves Glen to recharge his families lines only to find the hex from his teenage years is causing havoc. Can they work together to save the town? Full of witchy vibes, I enjoyed the first half of the book but the second was more about their passive approach to breaking the hex.

I loved this book! The vibe is small town obsessed with Halloween and I am living for it! Some wonderfully spooky elements but overall, a charming romance. It would‘ve been a 5 star read had it had a touch more depth. It‘s light and fluffy. Definitely a feel-good read. #mystery #halloween #witches #romance

Goal is to finish Daughter of the Forest and a chunk of Watership Down. Fingers crossed that now it‘s slower at work I‘ll actually be able to do it.

This book is adorable. Witches exist in this book, and a girl curses her ex, not realizing it will actually work and curse her whole town, too. Now she has to partner with said ex to try and save the town from disaster. Very cute, Halloween themed romantic comedy.

A charming romance novel about witches. Vivi realizes she may have accidentally cursed her ex when he returns to town 9 years later and they have to work together to save the small Georgia town that is her home and his family namesake.

This book is as sweet as candy corn and twice as corny. A peppy Halloween read for sure — but the thrilling bits feel rushed to fit in the romantic ones. #romance #bookofthemonth #halloween #

This book was really just meh. It seemed to be a lot of buildup for little reward, which was a bit disappointing. I loved the author‘s voice, and the character interactions, and I hope Sterling writes more for Grave‘s Glen.

This one is best read in a spooky mood and with a fun open mind. If you like a little witchy mystery and heavy petting, you‘ll adore this book. Was it a little silly? Of course, but was it a lot of fun? Absolutely. I‘ve heard it may have a second book around characters already introduced and I can‘t wait.

My second #bookspin pic. This was pretty fun to read but I still feel in the middle about my enjoyment of it personally. I just finished it today which was 250 pages in one afternoon, so it is pretty fast paced (at least for me).

TheAromaofBooks I enjoyed this one as a one-off read, but it wasn't one I see myself rereading. 7mo

This was a bit lukewarm. Had so much potential and some bits were ok, but generally… it was kinda cheesy and while I don‘t wanna judge anyone, the main characters feelings just didn‘t make sense to me, they were inexplicably all over the place. I prob overhyped it bc it had been on my library hold for a long time. At least it was short and easy, so no harm done 🤷🏽‍♀️

Imagine a Christmas Hallmark movie but with Halloween. It definitely had more 🌶 than I expected but I'm not complaining. I only wish the end had a little more story, it seemed rushed and missing some of the conflict that the rest of the story carried.

I wish I had read this is in the fall but 🤷🏼‍♀️ library holds come in when they come in.

Romance isn‘t my most favorite genre but this sounded like fun and good break between all the horror books for the month of October.

It was cute but the pacing seemed a little off to me and there wasn‘t much substance. The ending felt super rushed compared to the rest of the book too. Overall just a so-so.

My New Year goal is to try and read more! And The Ex Hex was the perfect start to that! (Okay, I understand it's not the end of the year yet...but we're counting this one)

This short but sweet rom-com had me hooked, I'm a sucker for Witchy themes too, so an absolute bonus! Although, I definitely wasn't expecting so much...spice 😅

All in all, a great read! ✨

2 STARS - this was a big miss for me. I liked the Hallowe'en vibe and magical locale, but the story lacked substance and failed to deliver on its premise with a predictable ho-hum romance (even with the spicy Hail Mary), not enough humour or magic. It didn't live up to its hype.

This was a fun, witchy romance. I enjoyed the contemporary take on witchcraft/magic, it did actually feel unique. The romance had plenty of spice, but I think I would have been more invested in their second-chance plot if there had been a prologue or something showing them falling in love the first time at 19, rather than just being told about it. I will definitely check out future entries, as it seems like this is going to be a series.
