Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures - Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia OVERALL IMPRESSION: This was my second time reading Beautiful Creatures. I read it a while ago (back in 2010 before I started reviewing books), but I wanted to read it again before the movie came out. I really enjoyed reading it. The book mainly focuses on the love story between Lena and Ethan, but there are still a lot of events and action happening throughout. I never found myself bored at any point in the book and was constantly making time to read this. I haven't seen the movie yet, but when I do I may come back and update this post with my thoughts.

CHARACTERS: I like Ethan's attitude throughout the book. He doesn't care what everyone else thinks, even though he's supposed to be the "hot-shot" star basketball player. He is very faithful and encouraging to Lena. I also really like the character of Link, Ethan's best friend. He accepts Ethan's choices and doesn't abandon him when the rest of their group of friends does.

COVER: I like the cover. It is simple and I love the font used for the title.
