Beautiful Creatures | Garcia Kami Stohl Margaret
In a small South Carolina town, where it seems little has changed since the Civil War, sixteen-year-old Ethan is powerfully drawn to Lena, a new classmate with whom he shares a psychic connection and whose family hides a dark secret that may be revealed on her sixteenth birthday.

I just finished this book. I had watched the movie years ago. And have been meaning to read this book, it is book 1 of 4. I am curious how it will go.
When Ethan Wate has very real dreams, so real he awakes covered in mud or sopping wet. He is shocked to discover the girl he has been dreaming about is real. And the new girl in school. Little does he know what a crazy year it will be.

“Are you a good witch or a bad witch?” This Wizard of Oz quote makes me think of this series of books, all of which have plenty of magic moments. #jazzyjune @Eggs #magicmoment Also pretend you don‘t see my reflection taking the picture 😋

Happy first day of the #bookishfitnesschallenge !! I‘ll be off to a slow start: work is busy and I‘m moving so my two mile walk isn‘t likely until Monday (working this weekend). No veggies at lunch today because I was in a rush (see above). So focusing on getting my 40 ounces of water and queuing up one of my two audiobooks. Even when you can‘t meet EVERY goal EVERY day, focusing on one is better than nothing!

nu-bibliophile Great positive thinking 👍 5mo

In my eyes, this is a very well presented book that I thoroughly enjoyed. I found that the characters were relatable and I would get along with them well should they be real people which made me feel compassionate. However, I didn‘t feel a connection to them which is a little disappointing.
The writing style was easy to follow but not simple, I was able to read fast and enjoy the book without getting frustrated with the grammar.

I love sweet and salty together. 3. Benita, Jesus, Margarita and Sixto 4. Annie and I still love it. I sing the songs a lot. 5. New York. #friyayinto @howjessreads

Huddled up listening to the tagged title and loving it! This is more of an audio production than most audiobooks and as someone who grew up in a backwoodsy southern area I so appreciate the wry portrayal of one. This feels much more relatable than Twilight did. 😅

One of the highlights of the #SWF2018 Singapore writers Festival this year. Happened just an hour ago. Dynamic creators talking about the power of superheroines. Mariko Tamaki, in particular, was riveting. But Stohl held her own as well. Thus far, this is the only session that we truly enjoyed, but it is only the second day. So plenty of time for a turnaround.

Lena is the new girl and Ethan falls for her quickly. Her uncle is the town outcast and her family turns out to be…unique. This witchy story is a bit melodramatic and overwrought in the way teenage romances can be, but it works and I enjoyed the listen. The audiobook contains sound effects and music, which didn‘t fully work for me, but I think it would work quite well for others. And what an arresting cover!

Ethan Wate & Lena Duchannes don't know it, but they were destined to meet. Despite the best efforts of Macon Ravenwood (Lena's uncle) to keep them apart, they quickly fall for each other... But their time is limited. Lena must choose a path in life by her 16th birthday. What will she choose? Will Ethan make it across the #Cemetary in time to help her with her decision? Is their love strong enough?

Not only is there a main character who is a book lover, but the local library and librarian are important parts of the story. I've just realised I photographed the 2nd book in the series Beautiful Darkness but it still fits the prompt so it will do.

The movie just doesn‘t compare to the book. I loved the inside look into Lena‘s Head. I wish there was more! Just fantastic the whole thing I‘m just in awe.

BrandedCowgirl The movie is truly a let down at how much was changed or left out. I want to see this endless library under the whole town! That‘s only open on holidays! And digging up graves. Just so many things left out. I get it to the public eyes yeah what ever and it‘s a teen book. But come on. 1y

Apparently this was written for a dare in 12 weeks. It shows. Yeah, I know the kids lap this shizz up but seriously this was weak - it made Twilight seem like Tolstoy. Initial set-up was identical to at least 17 other books, romance strand was familiar too. Same with characters, plot, certain scenes and motifs - heck, come to think of it was anything original in this pile of drivel?! Am ashamed it entertained me ... cont. in comments 👇👇👇

readingjedi ....even the little it did (i.e. enough to finish the thing). So many cliches - Lena was just another tiresome MPDG, Ridley was a cardboard cut-out, Ethan was just dull. Plenty of overused tropes & icky stereotypes (&fat shaming!!!) Avoid. 🦃🦃🦃 2y
TheEmpress I fully intended on reading the series last month. And omg I was just underwhelmed with the first book. I finished it but saw no reason to continue and there‘s soooo many books!!! 2y
VioletBramble I really liked the movie made from this book/series. I liked it so much I purchased the whole trilogy on my Kindle. I barely made it through the first book and know I will never read the remaining two titles. 2y

I'm not sure if it was the author, or maybe I've finally hit my limit on supernatural book, but this book was just okay for me. I felt that they saved all the action for the end and it was just a really long and uninteresting lead up to the climax.

I was able to read The Clan of the Cave Bear, Beautiful Creatures and Montress Vol. 01: Awakening.

3 stars for beautiful creatures. I liked the story though it was predictable and I disliked all of the characters. Ending was meh.
