About Me

I love to read. Reading is an escape from the real world. Some books are harsh, like the real world. But, I know that it isn't real. My favorite place to read is on my bed with some candy. Obviously, the picture is not me.

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power, and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.
Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.
Rating: 4/5 stars

Characters: 4. Lena was annoying at parts. "Don't love me! I'm going Dark!" That was annoying to hear over and over and over in the book. Amma was annoying as heck.
Plot: 4. I've never really read a book about witches. This was a first. But, the whole Light and Dark thing, was a little over the top. I still liked it though.
Writing: 4. Some parts were slow.
Addictiveness: 3 nothing really made me not want to put it down.
Romance: 4. Over the top, but still cute.

Overall, this book gets a FOUR.
