"Waiting On" Wednesday (20)

Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia and Margaret Stohl
December 1, 2009

"There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.

At least, that's what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.
There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end, there was a grave."
Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them. In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

This one sounds pretty amazing, right? Everything about this summary I love. I absolutely love the sound of it and I can't wait to read it! I've also talked with Kami for a bit and she's really awesome, so I want to read it even more, and also the fact that it's a debut! I love reading debut books more then anything because I love not knowing what to expect and surprises! So, I'm definitely keeping my eye out for this one. Oh! And the cover is absolutely grogeous I love the purple and the font is so interesting! And the loud trees in the background. I just love it all. And the title is so interesting ans striking. I just love everything about this novel. Too bad it's not out till December!
