Read Beautiful Creatures With Me!

Ok, guys!  Now is the time!  If you've been following our blog, you know that we are spotlighting The Caster Chronicles this month in preparation for the release of Beautiful Darkness.  Well, it may surprise you to know that I haven't read Beautiful Creatures yet.  Amy has been BEGGING me to read it, and I'm excited to announce that I'm finally getting the chance to see what all they hype is about.  :)

So, if you haven't read Beautiful Creatures yet, why not read it with me now?  Go out, and get your copy, and leave me some comments about what you love about it (or, if you're crazy, what you don't love about it)  If you've already read it, feel free to chime in, just don't give anything away!  If you entered the Caster Contest, and leave a comment on this post, you earn yourself an extra entry in the contest!

Top ten reasons  you should read Beautiful Creatures NOW:

#10.  Amy SWEARS it's amazing! (her review)  I've started it, and so far I think it's amazing!

#9.  It's a "clean read"!  You don't have to worry about your mom finding you with the book hidden under your pillow, or your kids reading over your shoulder!  :)

#8.  It's out in paperback, which means it's only around $9 at amazon, or if you have a BORDERS coupon, it's only $6.99.  That's crazy cheap!!  PLUS, there's a preview of Beautiful Darkness in the paperback version!!

#7.  Kami and Margaret are fabulous!  They're always on Twitter and Facebook.  AND right now they are touring with the Smart Chicks, giving things away and signing books and being generally awesome!

#6.  It's a southern gothic novel with tons of detailed descriptions of places, foods, history, and very interesting characters.

#5.  It's a totally different type of paranormal.  Have you ever heard of Casters before?  I didn't think so!

#4.  The cover!  Look at the cover!  So creepy beautiful!

#3.  You need another book crush in your life, and Amy says you're going to fall in love with Ethan!  It was written from Ethan's perspective.  How many books do you read that are written from the guy's point of view?  Very cool!

#2.  Beautiful Darkness is coming out Oct. 12, and you need to read Beautiful Creatures before you can read Beautiful Darkness!

#1.  Because I'm reading it now, and you want to be like me!

Did I convince you?  I'm going to be posting some of my favorite quotes in the comments as I read.  Feel free to do the same!  And be sure to check out all our Caster Chronicles giveaways and such over there >>>>>>>>> on the sidebar!

Ethan:  "For all I know, maybe Amma could move objects with her mind, she could sure get my butt moving with just a look."

  8. 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.


  9. 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.
