Beautiful Creatures book. Beautiful Creatures was a fascinating first novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl

Beautiful Creatures book. Beautiful Creatures was a fascinating first novel by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl. The focus of the story was the romance between Ethan and Lena - a mortal and a Caster, two star-crossed lovers separated by their predetermined fate and a small southern town trying to tear them apart. The last hundred pages or so of this novel were amazing. The writing was beautiful and the pacing was tight.

Beautiful Creatures is a long book at 563 pages, and I did feel the plot was slow in places. There were several forgettable scenes I think could have been cut out altogether which would have given the book more of a punch. That being said, it kept me entertained and I kept reading even when it got slow.

What I Thought:

So, if you are wanting to read something that's a little bit scary, a tid romantic, and undoubtedly interesting, Beautiful Creatures is for you! I know it's old, but give a girl some slack, I'm new at this whole YA thing. To be honest, it only captured my interest because I shamefully loved the movie {you'll see why that's important if you read the book} but now I think it is a book everyone should read at some point in their life. It's full of twists, turns, and downright "what in the world just happened" moments, which I really liked! The characters are complex, but not so much they are hard to understand or like, and it is extremely well written. Its just a really good book!

Lena Duchannes {pronounced 'Lee-Na Doo-Kane'} is kind of a classic "quiet, outcast, keeps to herself, typical high school weird girl" character, but don't let that distract you. She's full of secrets and has more spunk then you could give her credit for. Cast out of her previous high school, Lena arrives in Gatlin, South Carolina in search of a normal life. Living with her hermit of an uncle, Lena has a hard time fitting in to the small community. However, when Ethan Wate, a boy in her English class, says he wants to befriend her, everything takes a drastic turn. The question we're all left with is "what happens next?"

Ethan Wate is a pure, old-family, southern charm infused, boy. Raised by his Aunt Amma and house-stricken father, Ethan wants nothing more than to get out of Gatlin. Everyone is the same. The same people run the same businesses, the same people say the same things and Ethan is tired of it. Hoping to survive the last two years of high school that he has left with just his best friend Link, he's thrown into left field when Lena Duchannes becomes the talk of the town. Not knowing what he's actually getting himself into, Ethan just can't stay away from Lena. She's different; her clothes, the way she talks, her family, it's all enthralling. Little does he know how strange things will get by being her friend.

Now, even though its labeled "young adult", this novel is for +13. It has dark elements, as well as sensitive topics that you should have previous knowledge of before committing yourself. However, it's a must read! I'm working on Book Two now, which I'll be sure to comment on as well.

Happy Reading!

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl is set in the American South where Confederacy is still very important to its residents. Ethan lives in Gatlin, a small southern town where nothing changes. He hates it. He has been having dreams of saving a girl. Ethan cannot see her face and he doesn't know who she is. He wakes up with dirt under his fingernails and on his sheets. He has also started hearing a voice and the song, "Sixteen Moons", plays randomly on his MP3 player and the radio, even though he's never heard of the song before. A new girl, Lena, moves into Gatlin and lives with her uncle who is known as the local recluse. Lena and Ethan get much more than they bargained for when they become friends. Both of their families are keeping secrets from Ethan and Lena and when they find a locket that gives them shared visions of the past, they start keeping secrets of their own. Their ancestors are entwined somehow and that might be the key to saving Lena from her possibly dark future. I enjoyed the southern setting and the intense differences of the characters - 5 stars for this fun and suspenseful supernatural read!

I think this book is fantastic. It grabs you from the beginning and carries you right through to the end with supernatural and crazy! This take on witches is one of the best I've read in a lot time. There is a lot going on in this book and it kept me turning the pages. The plot stalls a little bit in the middle in my opinion. In the beginning you get a lot of information and background then it slows a little bit before the climatic ending. It wasn't enough to make me put this book down though.

Ethan is one of my favorite male characters in a YA book in a long time. I haven't read many great dynamic male voices in a long time. Ethan is smart and he feels genuine which makes him easy to connect to. I think all of the characters in this book felt fleshed out and real. Even some of the supporting characters have clear motivations and backgrounds (like Link) that make their actions have meaning.

This book maybe all about Casters and magic, but it hits on some tough issues like desiring to fit in and bullying. I thought that Ethan and Lena tackle these issues in great ways and their relationship grows even stronger because of these struggles.

I can't wait to start the next book and see where these two go from here.
