I read this book long ago. Right around the time the movie was coming out and I loved it. The sequels, well, that’s another theme for next time. (spoiler alert, couldn’t get through them. sorry) But I really loved this one. The first one…
by Kami Garcia
“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.”
I really enjoyed this book. It’s not a perfect book but it was entertaining enough. So, anyways, here are my top 5 book quotes from Beautiful Creatures.
“Mortals. I envy you. You think you can change things. Stop the universe. Undo what was done long before you came along. You are such beautiful creatures.”
“Teenagers. Everything is so apocalyptic.”
“Old things are better than new things, because they’ve got stories in them, Ethan.”
“Darkness can’t drive out darkness only light can do that, Hate can’t drive out hate only love can do that.”
“Without libraries what have we? We have no past and no future. Just ask Ray Bradbury.”
