    Default Our March Book!

    You voted, and I was forced to vote, and the winner was Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohlam.

    You can pick this book up from Barnes and Noble here:
    http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/beau...=9780316231657

    from Amazon here:
    http://www.amazon.com/Beautiful-Crea...iful+creatures

    or from Audible.com here:
    http://www.audible.com/pd/ref=sr_1_1...1111286&sr=1-1

    or, I encourage you to visit your local library, if need be, to see if they have a copy. I'll keep my fingers crossed for you!

    We'll start discussing this book around March 7th, so you should hopefully have plenty of time to locate a copy of the book and at least start reading.
    Any questions? Just let me know!

    I can gladly use Safe Haven for April's book if that's what people prefer! That's the only thing bad about having such close votes. :/

    I'm wondering if anyone has started this yet, do you like it? I have so many on my wish list ... I'm wondering if I want to start another long series.
    BUT if you all tell me it is amazing then I will gladly pick it up
    The book I have been waiting a year for comes out on March 5th, Requiem by -Lauren-Oliver I'm Sooooooo excited! I don't know if I will be able to resist stopping everything to read that book!

    I am honestly not sure I'll be reading that book this month. It just doesn't seem to appeal to me that much and since I don't have an online library available in Indonesia, I have to buy all the books I want to read. I think I'll wait for all your review first.

    I've finished it, and I happened to love it. I enjoyed the fact that it was written from a male's point of view (I'm not an overly mushy person, and his 'wow, she's pretty awesome' without as many 'I love her and want to marry her and have babies and everything will be beautiful and wonderful and life is full of rainbows' thrown in was quite welcome here, lol).
    I think the writers do a more than adequate job of character building, the plot (while your typical 'young-love-we're-told-can't-be' Romeo and Juliet style) is fast paced enough to keep me interested and wanting to read more (something I seriously lacked in this month's book, obviously, lol). I loved the characters. I think the writing style was easy to follow, even in the slower plot sections (yes, there are some in the beginning part of the book as the scene is set for the ending, but I didn't think they were painful) - and the last 100 or so pages were just wonderful. The ending had an element twist I wasn't expecting...and though I didn't jump straight into the second book, I WILL be grabbing the rest of the series to read.

    LOL! I honestly prefer to be a bit ahead most times, for this very reason - so that if someone asks if the book's good or too gory or too slow or, whatever, I can help answer.
