Beautiful Creatures is coming to the big screen
I recently received a copy of Beautiful Creatures to read. One look at it and I was wondering just when I was going to have time to read that many pages. Not that I don’t love to read. Not at all. I LOVE to read, I just can’t find the time! However, I heard nothing but good things about Beautiful Creatures so I wanted to find the time to read it – and I have!
I read it while the kids take their evening shower before their bedtime. I read it to them at night and any other chance I get. I’m a few days into the book and every time I put it down I can’t wait to get back to it. It’s well written, interesting, engaging and more importantly, believable.

This is not a sponsored post. I received a paperback copy of Beautiful Creatures to read at my leisure. All thoughts and opinions remain my own.
