Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, # 1)Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Lena Duchannes is 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.

Let me start by saying in the last few months I have heard nothing but great things about this book, nothing about the plot just that it was good. So when my friend suggested we go see the upcoming movie I said "Yes, but we'll need to read the book first." And read it we did.

I don't even have the words to describe how I felt when I read this book... I do know that I couldn't put this down. I sat up late reading it and then when I woke this morning I stayed in bed where it was quiet until finally I had no option but to get up and deal with the day. I have taken 5 minutes to write this review and then I shall be diving into Beautiful Darkness. If you haven't started this series yet then I suggest you go grab a book and get started. You wont be disappointed.

Thanks for reading.
