Summary: (from goodreads) 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.

Beautiful Creatures will definitely be on my top five of favorite books. I LOVE that fact that it's written from a males point of view and that you can follow it with ease as it was well written. The plot and the descriptions of the lifestyles these characters portrayed kept me well entertained. I found the historical views interesting. Not only did this book keep me on the edge of my seat wondering what happens next, it made me angry, fall in love and laugh and cry. The love between Lena and Ethan and how they were able to communicate mentally wad a plus to this story. However, I have to agree with Yara on what's the deal with Ethan? Since Macon was sacrificed in order for Lena to become a "good" caster, does that mean Ethan will now become an Incubus? I guess it's something I will have to find out when I read the next book. Can't wait. This book is for YA and I recommend it to all.
