Beautiful Creatures

Last book I've read...

Beautiful Creatures (2009)
Author: Kami Garcia, and Margaret Stohl
Rating: 4/5

“The right thing and the easy thing are never the same.”
― Kami Garcia, Beautiful Creatures

Interesting. Intriguing. Frightening. But it's not enough to make me fall in love with the lead characters. I'm not digging the love story, but I want to know the turn out of events on its sequel, Beautiful Darkness.

Plus, I have to see the film adaptation. I want to.

Book Description:
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.
