In other news - is anyone else being totally pwned by Beautiful Creatures right now?



So of course I've read other YA series like The Hunger Games, Hush Hush - although I got bored with Fallen and totally stopped - but a friend of mine recommended Beautiful Creatures a few months ago...

I watched the trailer for the movie, which ticked a lot of my interests' boxes:

Boy meets girl he can't have - check
Magical mystery - check
Historical flash backs - check
Set in the deep South - yes ma'am

So I ordered the book.

It then sat on my "to read pile" for the following few months.

I was finally able to read it over Christmas and I. Am. Hooked.  I can't help myself Pinteresting (that's a verb, right?) behind-the-scenes clips, costume inspirations and music links - Florence and the Machine's "Seven Devils" is on repeat) - I even bought the Illustrated Movie Guide!

I'm kind of loving being a little but pwned by something again :) but the BC fandom seems a little quiet... is anybody else out there?

- Lorabell

P.s. Not only is this film's Production Design by Richard Sherman *cough* from Breaking Dawn gorgeousness *ahem* but it stars Emma Thompson, Jeremy Irons, Viola Davis and Alden Ehrenreich who was "discovered" by Steven Spielberg himself *DING* sign me up!

  1. I love Beautiful Creatures. I picked up the first book at the library a couple of years ago and instantly fell in love. Then, I was super excited when I heard they were turning it into a movie. The fanbase is pretty quiet; there is a following out there, I'm sure. It would be nice to hear from some fellow fans. Looking foward to the movie! :)

  2. I've been wanting to check it out forever but haven't had the chance. Sounds great, I will have to add it to my list for sure :) I've recently started watching Vampire Diaries. I know I'm late to that party lol. I'm trying to get caught up, it's sooo good. I might check out the books next ;) For anyone who hasn't seen this show yet, it's good.

    P.S. We miss you Lorabell and having somewhere to meet lol. We need like a "book, fangirl, obsession blog" lol.

  4. Vampire Diaries is one of my favorite tv shows. It combines Twilight with Beautiful Creatures. Absolutely love it.

  5. I have been a fan of BC for several years now. The books are excellent. My hubby took me to see the movie for valentine's day and I have to say I have mixed feelings about it. I know everything can't be included in a movie, but this changed and left out what I consider key plot points. Anyone else care to share their thoughts?

  7. Fallen is a bit slow in the beginning, but it picks up a lot in the second book. It's cool man, well worth trudging through the first book :))
