“There was a curse.

I never even saw it coming.”
I say this that I saw the movie before reading this book and I was like, why didn't the movie work, It is a good story. And than I read the book and I understood why. The book had a great story. Too bad it was executed that well for the film.

Personally I enjoyed this book a lot and even heard its audiobook. I never had so much fun listening to a book before. The concept of the book is one that i totally dig. It was interesting, mysterious, funny and dramatic all at the same time. And the song Sixteen Moons... that is one awesome song. And it also had really memorable lines in it. I cannot wait to start the next book. Overall I will give Beautiful Creatures 3 beautiful stars.
