Book Review: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

New York Times Bestselling authors Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl give us the meaning of Beauty again in Beautiful Creatures.

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.

My Take:
The story is so beautiful, while reading it you feel for the new girl in a small town. I loved he point of view from Ethan who looked towards the future than regretted it every day because it meant one less day with Lena. These two together made sense even if the whole town thought she was for the town and because she had a uncle the town only saw him as their own Boo Radley. I very fortunate to have the two wonderful women who wrote this extraordinary story, Lena's and Ethan's fate is not over yet, there still is more that needs explanations for lets just hope for a beautiful ending.

I want to take this moment to say thanks to the two women who gave us something that has everything you want to read because you feel closely to the characters. With this book I was able get the true meaning of friendship and how you can fall in love with someone who is in your dreams. (lets hope this happens cuz I've been seeing someone famous in my dreams.)

I give is a 5/5 rating
