So, this weekend, I loaded up my Tween and went to go see the Beautiful Creatures movie.
And -- surprisingly -- it was pretty good! I am not a big paranormal romance fan, and I liked-not-loved the Beautiful Creatures book, so I wasn't expecting much from the movie.
Where the Beautiful Creatures book is all slow, southern Gothic with creeping kudzu and family secrets going back generations, the movie is much quicker paced, and much funnier. There are some great actors at work (I love you, Emma Thompson!) and some pretty nifty effects.
And I do have to say, I much prefer movie-Ethan to book-Ethan.
If you are a Beautiful Creatures fan, and are looking for some books like it, I made you a handy infographic.
