    Beautiful Creatures was a great book for being something like 600+ pages long. I definitely think a teen who likes fantasy/ magic plus romance, will greatly enjoy this book. It is slightly sad though 😦

    Breathless was an alright book. I read it a long time ago,sometime in the summer, but I did like it. It seemed realistic at the time, because everything wasn’t perfect.
