Theater Thursday: Beautiful Creatures

I realize the Beautiful Redemption doesn't come out for another month, but I had to show everyone the Beautiful Creatures trailer I just saw.

Now aren't you all super excited!  Seriously, I can't wait.  Plus, it looks like a pretty faithful adaption. I'm always happy for authors when film makers try for to get a book right, so here's a quick description of the book. 

There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.

At least, that's what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.
There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end, there was a grave.

Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

Doesn't that sound great?   I've really enjoyed this series, and I hope the movie does it justice.  So far it's looking great.  Now we have roughly five months until the movie comes out, so everyone grab the book and get reading before it gets too close (Because no matter how good the movie is, I firmly believe you need a few months between reading the book and watching the movie. Sadly, no movie can capture everything in the book.  Even the five hour Pride and Prejudice missed a few things). Plus, the forth and final book comes out next month.  I'm so excited!


  1. Oooh, I started this series and loved it . . . then lost track of it. I will totally re-read this one, I remember thinking it was so good! Do you have a copy that I could borrow?

  2. Sure, I have the first three hardback. Let me know when you want them ;)
