Confuzzled Books

If you are wondering what kinds of books I review and events I host, this little section is the place to look. Books I love to read: Children's, Young Adult, Paranormal and Fantasy books. Books I like to read: General Fiction, Romances, Religious Fiction, Mysteries and Biographies. So those are the genres of books I will generally review. If you send me a book outside of those areas, I'll consider it, but it may not fit my tastes. Reviews will take about 2 months to post; I try to post them around the time the book is released. On giveaways: Sending me a signed book to give away on the site is a great way to get your book noticed. I do a "mystery book" giveaway about every 2 weeks, where I read the book and twitter about it without revealing its title, then reveal what I've been reading and give it away. The whole event takes a couple weeks, and I feature the giveaway book on my blog for most of that time.

Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures  - Kami Garcia, Margaret Stohl Our narrator Ethan has lived in Georgia all his life for the most part his life was pretty typical until his Mom died. As he and his family regroup after their loss a new girl pops into town, Lena. The attraction is immediate and uniquely mystical. Lena is from a long line of Casters. She has secret that may turn her dark/evil. Ethan and Lena fight to find a way defeat the darkness in her.

I have a soft spots for witchy fantasies. Jumping into this book was like lounging into a warm bath. I loved the characters, the magic, and romance. I am not one that likes gooey romances. This wasn’t one of those thank goodness. Ethan and Lena carry their own as well a carry each other.

As for anything that i did not like, I would have to say the flashbacks were not my favorite. I think there is a lot that was still unanswered but maybe that is why there is 3 more books.

I really enjoyed reading this start to the Caster series and I look forward to reading more. I was happy with the length of the book. I did not feel it ended too soon or drag on too long.
