Beautiful Creatures Series

Some loves are meant to be..others are cursed..

Beautiful Creatures is my favorite book in the world <3 We had to read it last year over the summer for school, and at first I thought it was going to be something like Twilight so I wasn't too happy about it, but once I actually started reading it I couldn't stop. Once I finished the first one (at like 5 in the morning on a saturday) I sat up in bed and waited for the book store to be open so I could have someone take me to buy the next book xD
I actually met Margret Stohl (Kami couldn't be there unfortunately) and she's really cool XD She even signed my Beautiful Creatures book, and once she was finished talking to my school I saw her in the hallway and we had a conversation. I felt so special XD

Have any of you read the books? Which one is your favorite? Whos your favorite character? (Do you ship Ethan x Lena? XD ) Discuss the wonderfulness that is Beautiful Creatures! :)

What are the books about? They are not full of sappy angst romance are they?

i found this summary of the first book if you have time to read it
http://www.shmoop.com/beautiful-creatures/summary.html
but no, its not all romance. lena comes from a family of what they call casters, which basically means they all have certain 'abilities'. some are good and some are evil. on each of the casters 16th birthdays they are claimed for either the light or the dark. most of the book is lenas struggle with her inner demons and ethan and lena trying to find a way to make sure lena stays good, because she feels she is gonna go bad, and if that happens she'll hurt everyone she loves.

the book is alot better than i make it sound though XD and its really suspenceful and theres all these twists and..yeah..if you're looking for a book to read i suggest this series
