So of course I've read other YA series like The Hunger Games, Hush Hush - although I got bored with Fallen and totally stopped - but a friend of mine recommended Beautiful Creatures a few months ago...
I watched the trailer for the movie, which ticked a lot of my interests' boxes:
Boy meets girl he can't have - check
Magical mystery - check
Historical flash backs - check
Set in the deep South - yes ma'am
So I ordered the book.
It then sat on my "to read pile" for the following few months.
