There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.
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.
Beautiful Creatures is a must read for 2009! I don’t know if I can express how much I love this book and give it its proper due in a few paragraphs. Beautiful Creatures is one of those books that you want to absorb every moment until it’s been engraved in your head. When I got down to the final pages I didn’t want the story to end because then I had to accept the inevitable – The Ending. WOW! The events that led up to the ending were heart wrenching.
