Beautiful Darkness and The Lovely Bones Giveaway!

Beautiful Darkness. The enthralling creation of two authors, Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl, this book is the second installment in the Beautiful Creatures series. The plot is summed up best in the professional synopsis: 

Ethan Wate used to think of Gatlin, the small Southern town he had always called home, as a place where nothing ever changed. Then he meets mysterious newcomer Lena Duchannes, who reveals a secret world that has been hidden in plain sight all along.

Mixed with paranormal goings-on, beautiful writing and romance, Beautiful Darkness is a New York Times bestseller and phenomenon for a reason. 

The Lovely Bones. Murder. Salmon was murdered when was merely 14 years old. Now, her soul cannot rest until she guides her family remaining on earth to the man that brutally killed her. This book sparked a horror movie starring Sairose Ronan (who is a brilliant actress, if you've never seen her). The New Yorker even called it a "stunning achievement." Thanks, New Yorker. A two word review is tough to pull off. I should know.

  6. I posted my comment at Goodreads because it would not let me post here earlier.
    My book boyfriend is Detective Michael Bennett from James Patterson's Step On A Crack. Widowed, raising 10 children, he still manages to be sexy!

  16. Wow, so many book boyfriends out there! But right now, I'd have to say Marc Ramos from The Shifters series, by Rachel Vincent. *swoon* My top number one favorite series, in general. Not just adult! March may be hot tempered and it's pretty nasty, but he is so sweet and is loyal and loves with ALL of his heart.
    *sigh*

    Thanks for the giveaway! I loooved Beautiful Creatures, but I haven't had a chance to read Beautiful Darkenss yet. I also really liked The Lovely Bones movie, so I should really love the book.
