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.
