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.
In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

The plot of Beautiful Creatures was breathtaking. I cannot explain how much I loved this book! For as long as this book was, there was never a dull moment. I enjoyed every minute of it. This is a long book though, it took me a long time to get through it, not because it was boring but rather because it's LONG. It's so good that you never want to put it down. I thought that I wouldn't like reading from a male perspective, but it was so easy to read. I loved how deeply he cared for Lena and really thought his point of view was interesting.

Wow, the characters were AMAZING! Lena and Ethan were relatable and completely fascinating. Some of these characters were a little strange, but I loved them just the same. The romance between Lena and Ethan really entranced me. It was real yet unreal at the same time. It was really extraordinary.   

The ending did not disappoint me at all. This amazing journey ended with an unexpected BANG! I loved it. I can't wait to read the next book.

My Favorite Part: I loved everything, but I would have to say I enjoyed the romance the most. Ethan and Lena had a lot to deal with, and they seemed real to me. 

Do I recommend this book? Yes, ohmigosh I absolutely loved it!
Will I be reading the sequel? Yes, ordering it right now :)
