Worth the read: “Beautiful Creatures” by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

How wonderful is it to go to a movie and the previews on the screen lead you to your next great book?  It all started with an interesting clip for a movie titled Beautiful Creatures.  Shortly after the preview I found out the movie was based on a book.  A book I had never heard of, but after seeing that tantalizing set up on screen I had to read.  Just like the movie the book is titled “Beautiful Creatures” by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl.  A story told through the eyes of a young man who finds himself enamored with a girl he’s been dreaming about for months.  Only to find out she’s real when she moves to his small town.

As the first in a series of books it was a great read with an ending that left me wanting for more.  And now I can’t wait to go see the movie.  It comes out this week on February 14th.  Here’s hoping Hollywood doesn’t screw this story up.  I haven’t had time to read the rest of the books in this series yet, but you better believe they’re on my very long “hold list” at the library.
