Finally read Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures  - Margaret Stohl, Kami Garcia

I love that I can do half-stars here on Booklikes! 

 

Pros:

* Witches! (Sorry, casters)

* Good v. Evil

* Male POV

 

Cons:

* Slooooooow start

* Details come very late in the book

 

I really like that though Ethan is the voice of the book, Lena is the badass. It's fun to see the opposite of what we usually see. 

 

Overall, I enjoyed the novel, I just thought the beginning/up until they go to the movies is very slow -- from there the tension and action ratchets up. Also, I am willing to admit that my expectations may be clouded as I am a little late to the party when it comes to reading "Beautiful Creatures." After hearing so many friends rave about this book, I may have set unrealistic expectations.
