Book Review: Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

There were no suprises
in Gatlin County.
At least, that's what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn't have
been more wrong.

There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end,
There was a grave.


Lena Duchannes in 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 suprises, one secret could change everything.

Beautiful Creatures was a suprisingly good read. When I first saw the book, I thought it would be another one about vampires and werewolves with a girl who falls for a supernatural being. I was wrong. There were no 'vampires' or 'werewolves' and instead of a normal girl, there was a normal guy. This book had some funny parts and some sad parts but there were never any boring parts. If you're tired of supernatural romances where the girls are helpless and the guys do everything, this would be a good book to read.
