Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia
My rating: 2 of 5 stars
Okay. I don't like how the main character was constantly insulting and objectifying women- just because girls don't want to dress revealingly doesn't mean their dresses are ugly and you need to write a several page rant about it. Also, he's sixteen and she's fifteen- yep, true love right there, clearly. Definitely time to worry about whether they can get married! And the fact that he's constantly saying he couldn't bear not to touch her... creep. How about you would die if you couldn't TALK to her, or something else actually romantic and showing that you care about her (especially considering that he not only could but DOES die when he kisses her). The ending sucked.
This book was also impaired by being written by two authors. There were several times when two scenes just didn't mesh. Better editing could have fixed it, though.
