I am now on chapter 22..I really like the book, the beautiful books were slow going for me too but i was not that into them. I think liking the story line makes a huge difference on how fast you read a book..personally I am not to sure what the point of the beautiful books is, other then the girl going light or dark, and I have read two of them and I still do not know the answer with wait for me I look forward to finding out the why and how and if they will become a family again
