Sixteen year old outsider, Jess Parker, gets the chance of a lifetime: an invitation to join a secret society of popular girls dedicated to defeating the mean girls of the world. The Cinderella Society guides all new recruits through its top secret ultimate life makeover. It’s all part of preparing them to face down the Wickeds and win. Determined not to let the Cindys down, Jess dives in with a passion. Finally, a chance to belong and show the world what she’s made of.
… be careful what you wish for.
Jess’s transformation wins her the heart of her dream crush and a shot at uber-popularity. Until the Wickeds–led by Jess’s arch enemy–begin targeting innocent girls in their war against the Cindys, and Jess discovers the real force behind her exclusive society. It’s a high stakes battle of good vs. evil, and the Cindys in power need Jess on special assignment. When the mission threatens to destroy her dream life come true, Jess is forced to choose between living a fairy tale and honoring the Sisterhood… and herself.
What’s a girl to do when the glass slipper fits, but she doesn’t want to wear it anymore?

There were no surprises in Gatlin County. We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere. 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.
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.
Cover: I absolutely love the cover! I drew me in right away. It has a very Gothic feeling which I love. I also like how the letters look like vines and the trees in the back. I had no idea what "Beautiful Creatures" was about I just knew I had to read it.
Story: This book was very good! It was different from what I have read before. I was drawn into the book from the beginning. Beautiful Creatures is your book version of a thriller, romance, action, and mystery all together. It's also adventurous and fun! It's worth your time!
I love Ethan Wate. I wish he was real. It was different how the book was written from a boy's view, but I liked it. Even though I loved Ethan, at first he had some moments where he was a jerk. He was trying to be like the rest of the basketball team. You know, trying to be all cool when all they sounded like was a corn dog. How much he loved Lena and how he never let go even though he had his doubts was very moving!
Ethan's family was very interesting. They are not your average family. Amma with her superstitions and Mitchell (Ethan's Dad) with his weird behavior. I do not know how it is to lose someone you love so I cannot relate with Mitchell. I wish Ethan would have tried to connect with his dad more though. Let's just say they were a very interesting family to read about.
Lena was my favorite character. She is witty and doesn't try to be like everyone else. She's different and I love that about her. I did not like that she wouldn't open up to Ethan in the beginning. i always felt bad for how she was ridiculed just because she was Ravenwood's niece. People who judge others before they know them annoy me. There are too many words to describe how much I like Lena Duchannes.
Lena's family was definitely different. Her Uncle Macon was definitely the weirdest yet my favorite among Aunt Del, Ryan, Gramma, Reece, ect. It was always interesting to find out how they changed their house, yet again. The family rituals were very cool! You never knew what you would find out about this family next.
Link made me crack up the entire book. Link was a loyal friend, but I wish he would've stuck up to his mom. Mrs. Lincoln was one of the characters on my bad list. I loved Link's ambition. He never gave up on his band, no matter how terrible he was! We should all learn from Link to never give up.
The ending, I thought, was very gloomy. I understand why, but I'm a sucker for a happy ending. When I finished the book I said,"WHAT"! I cannot wait for the sequel. This was one of the best books I have ever read!

1.Grab your current book
2.Open to a random page
3.Share two (2) "teaser" sentences from somewhere on that page
4. BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (Don't give too much away, you dont's want to ruin the book for others)
5. Share the title and author of the book, so that other TT particapants can add the book to their TBR lists if they like your teasers!

Ok I lied. I just recently read Jessica's Guide to Dating on the Dark Side and I have to tell you all about it!
Summary:The undead can really screw up your senior year ...
Marrying a vampire definitely doesn’t fit into Jessica Packwood’s senior year “get-a-life” plan. But then a bizarre (and incredibly hot) new exchange student named Lucius Vladescu shows up, claiming that Jessica is a Romanian vampire princess by birth—and he’s her long-lost fiancé. Armed with newfound confidence and a copy of Growing Up Undead: A Teen Vampire’s Guide to Dating, Health, and Emotions, Jessica makes a dramatic transition from average American teenager to glam European vampire princess. But when a devious cheerleader sets her sights on Lucius, Jess finds herself fighting to win back her wayward prince, stop a global vampire.
Cover: I like the cover. It's mysterious and it makes you wonder. A weakness I have is that sometimes I judge a book my its cover and thats exactly what I did with this book. At first I thought it was kinda dumb but whenever I read about it on someone's blog, I just had to read it.
Story: This book is about a country girl from pennsylvania that finds out that she is a Romanian Vampire Princess. She also finds out she has a long lost fiancee named Lucius. At first Jessica can't accept that she is a Romanian Vampire Princess. She slowly falls for Lucius, her betrothed, on the way to finding herself. She must marry Lucius or there will be a war between the Vladuscu vampires and the dragomir vampires.
I loved Jessica from the beginning. She is strong willed, stubborn, and independent. I also love the fact that she is a country girl. I hated that she was very logical and that she didn't like fairy tales, because I love fairy tales. Fairy tales let you escape from life even when you're all grown up. It drove me nuts about how long she took to believe she was a vampire! Overall I like Jessica.
It took me awhile to like Lucius. He may have been totally sexy but at first I thought he was a total snot head and that he was very rude. The times when you saw his sensitive side I absolutely loved him. Lucius had me laughing at some parts of the book. It was hilarious how he looked at american culture. You never think about how american culture may look until you hear it from him. Sadly, I did not like Lucius through most of the book. Through the end of the book I was just waiting for him to be his old self again but each time I got disapointed. The chemistry between Lucius and Jessica as amazing! I loved the romance scenes between Lucius and Jessica. They were done tastefully and made you want more.
Mindy, Jessica's best friend, was a funny character through the book. She is just a boy crazy teenager that wants a guy in her life. I dont really have a lot to say about her other than I felt so bad for her so many times throughout the book. I wish Jessica would've told Mindy her secret but I understand why she didn't. I was very disapointed that Jessica never got back to being friends at the end of the book. I wish Jessica would have said goodbye to Mindy or sorry, at least something!
This book was very good! It has humor, action, romance, and well just about a little bit of everything. The ending wasn't the best but still recommend it.
