I had the opportunity to read Beautiful Creatures last year in anticipation of the big screen adaptation. I was hooked on the book as soon as I started reading it. Ethan and Lena (the two main characters in the book) are going to be the next big couple and reading the book first, really got me connected to the characters.

I’m a huge sucker for love stories. And although there is a lot of supernatural going on throughout the story, it’s not forced which makes it much more believable.
About Beautiful Creatures
Beautiful Creatures tells the story of two star-crossed lovers; Ethan, a young man longing to escape his small town, and Lena, a mysterious new arrival. Together, they uncover dark secrets about their respective families, history and town. As the tie between them strengthens, they become tangled in a dangerous web of spells and secrets from which there may be no escape.
