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.

Since I’ve heard so many great things about this I gave it a try. I’ve read this book when I finally finished TRUTHWITCH  and I was glad because it was a fun & light read.

So let’s get started with the REVIEW!
please beware of this icons.


So this book was set in a contemporary world. And we have here some places like Grove Academy, The TeaHouse (which is my fave, even tho it’s a place for old people) & etc.
So I’ll give it

⭐⭐⭐⭐/4 stars


HARPER PRICE, our heroine & narrator in the book. She’s a kind of person that wants everything to be perfect. She’s funny & hilarious tho, I’m glad that her personality changed when she accepted her fate as a Paladin.

⭐⭐⭐⭐/4.5 stars

DAVID, our heroine’s enemy-turned-to-love interest. I like David he’s cute 😍 His character is a typical YA contemporary  + he’s a kind of a geek tho.


It was a fast-paced read for me so the writing was fine & so hilarious.

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐/ 5 stars


I didn’t expect that the Rebel Belle story would be like that. I have tiny bit issue about the plot. It was kind of fast-forward plus the SAYLOR-HARPER scenes are kind of awkward. But I like it, I love the ending and I was kind of disappointed there ain’t no plot twist in the story. But it was ok for me so I’ll give it.

⭐⭐⭐⭐/ 4 stars


I have a lot of fave parts in this book.
Like when Harper become a Paladin, the chasing scene, & also the romance between David & Harper.


Rebel Belle is a fantasy set in the contemporary world, and it was my first time to read a book about Paladins, Oracles & Mages. I really like this book because It was so hilarious & I love the characters.
And there ain’t no hard drama & super mean villain.
So it’s definitely a light & fun read for me.
All in All I’ll give it

⭐⭐⭐⭐/4.5 stars


“Bruce Wayne’s parents get killed and he goes to Tibet or whatever, and Superman is an alien, and Spiderman had that radioactive spider. Me? I kissed a janitor in the school bathroom.”

“It was such a relief to be able to sob and have someone know all the reasons why.”
