BEAUTIFUL CREATURES Giveaway

VERY rarely am I completely surprised by a book. When I am, and the surprise is not only good but excellent, I get behind it and tell everyone I know to buy it.

So now I'm a pimp for BEAUTIFUL CREATURES.

BC had two things going for it before I ever opened it. A gorgeous cover that holds all kinds of spooky promise and the possibility of dual use as a doorstop. I love a book that's going to give me time to get lost in the story, and I don't care what industry standards are for book length, 600 pages is perfect.

Especially when not one word is wasted.

Despite any comparisons being made, BEAUTIFUL CREATURES stands on its own. It is a love story full of magic and mystery, dripping with atmosphere. The film rights have already been sold, and if the film makers do HALF the job with casting and filming that Kami and Margie have done with character creation and world building - I smell an Oscar.

Here's the link to my review for Young Adult Books Central - it's spoiler free.

Good news for you...since I bought a hard copy, I'm giving away my ARC!

Here's how to win:

1.) Follow my blog AND ...

2.) comment on this post or...

3.) tweet this link on Twitter. Make sure to include @MyraMcEntire so I know you did it!

Good luck! Contest ends December 20th!

  1. I love it when people talk about books they love--and it says a LOT that you went out and bought the hardcover even though you had the ARC! I'm intrigued, now.

  26. Following, commenting, tweeting & glowing. I love SHIVER and have been yearning for BEAUTIFUL CREATURES. I forgive the rant since I do it, too.

    Rant away, Myra -- there are folks who don't realize how many *fabulous* YA books are out there (and are completely not derivative!)
