Are you Reading Beautiful Creatures With Me?

Are you reading Beautiful Creatures with me?  If not, go check out my top 10 reasons you should read it with me now!  If so, what do you think about it?  I've been so busy that I'm only halfway through the book so far.  I'm enjoying it a lot!  I used to live in Summerville, SC, so it's been really interesting to read about places that I've been!  I absolutely LOVE South Carolina and I miss it a lot!  I just started a forum, and added a Beautiful Creatures post, so we can chat back and forth on there!  Check it out!

Here are some of my favorite quotes so far:

"You can't jump off a cliff when you've already fallen off a bigger one." (Ethan to Lena)

" see a girl who burns me and shocks me and shatters me with a single touch.  And I kissed her.  And she kissed me back.  It was too unbelievable, even for me."  (Ethan)

"Losing her was the worst thing I could imagine.  Like I was falling, but this time I would definitely hit the ground."  (Ethan)

Here's the comments from the other post!

I've read Beautiful Creatures, and fell in love. Link as hilarious, Ethan is adorable and Lena is so distinctively Lena. How can you not fall in love with such real characters? The setting couldn't be more perfect and the plot is definatly not predictable. You think you understand then something changes dramatically. Read my review at and don't forget to leave a comment!

I have entered the caster contest already! So +1 entry for me.

You will definatly not be able to put this book down. Like really, you will become obsessed.

I got totally caught up in Ethan & Lena's tale. I could not put the book down! Amazing writing skills shown by Kami and Margaret and I am in awe of their talent.

Loved your ten reasons to read the book right now, lol. I wish I could but I need to get caught up on my reading/reviews. Hope you enjoy it as much as I did. :)

I'm also entered in the Castor Contest because I'm dying to read Beautiful Darkness NOW.

I'm glad I found this post, I picked Beautiful Creatures up on a whim at my library a couple of days ago so I'll read it with you. :)

I read Beautiful Creatures a month ago and I loved it!
Btw, I like that quote too!

Someone left a comment saying that it was hard for them to picture the narrator as a guy.  That he seems too aware of his feelings etc, or something like that.  I guess she deleted her comment because it's not there anymore, but I kind of agree with her.  I have to keep reminding myself that the narrator is a guy.  He does seem very in tune with his "feminine side" and very aware of things that I don't think most guys notice like specifics on clothing and things like that.  But, I still enjoy it, and I think Ethan's pretty lovable!  So what are your thoughts?  How are you liking it?



  1. That was me with the deleted comment. Sorry! I re-read the comment and was afraid that I spoiled it a little bit about the Lena/Ethan mind thing and I forgot to put a spoiler alert.

  2. Haha! That's funny! When I read what you wrote, I was thinking, yes, I think so too! But then when I went to write about it today, I couldn't find it! So, anyway....I agree with you! :) Have you read more?

  3. Yeah, I'm on page 471 now. I'll write a few general thoughts on the discussion post soon. I hope you're enjoying it.

  4. I am loving it so far (pg. 207)
    Amazing gothic atmosphere and a male lead!Couldn't ask for more :)
