Beautiful Creatures Review

From the website:

Some loves are meant to be…others are cursed. There were no surprises in Gatlin County. At least, that’s what I thought. Turns out, I couldn’t have been more wrong. There was a curse. There was a girl. And in the end, there was a grave

My review:
OK Well......not sure what to say about this one? I liked it I really did but....Not as much as I hoped I would. I think the end was definitely left open to continue the story. Of course we have our two angst ridden teenage characters (which I really liked) in a small town that doesn't understand anything. (I know these towns....I live in one!) And not to spoil anything they suffer their own problems that few and far between understand. But...they love each other (but I won't go farther than that because it would spoil it for you). You really need to read this one and form your own opinions. I will say that I give it four stars and would recommend it to others.
Teaser:
"the days without you bleed together until time is nothing more than an obstacle we must overcome,"-all it seemed to amount to was a love story with a really bad, and really Black ending. But it was all we had."
