Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
This book was beautifully written. I think someone said it's a gothic fantasy (or something like that!) and I think gothic is a great word to describe it. It was dark and light, and happy and sad and everything in between. It's a story of friendship and love, enemies and hate. It's a story of the south how I imagine it could really be (have been told it is, to a certain extent). It has strong side characters that are imperative to the story and really add to the whole thing. Several of them I could read about all day (the 3 aunts are so funny!).
I could really go on about this much longer but I've got two kiddos crying and jabbering at me and keeping my train of thought is getting mighty difficult! So I'm just going to add that I can't wait for the next book and this is a book I'll proudly display and will urge everyone to read! 5 stars!
