Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia & Margaret Stohl

The first book on my list from the Morris Award nominees was Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl.

Ethan Wate has lived his entire life in Gatlin, North Carolina, a tiny town where nothing ever happens. That is until the day Lena Duchannes starts school. Lena is beautiful and mysterious and the girl of Ethan’s dreams. Literally, he’s been having terrifying dreams for months all starring Lena. The more Ethan and Lena explore their connection the more questions are raised about who or what Lena is and how an old family curse may be keeping them apart.

Beautiful Creatures absolutely oozes atmosphere, has wonderful characters, and tells a suspenseful story of cursed love. There is definite potential for a sequel and I’ve heard it’s already been optioned for a movie.
