Teaser Tuesday - Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia

Teaser Tuesdays is a weekly bookish meme, hosted by MizB of Should Be Reading. Anyone can play along! Just:
* Grab your current read
* Open to a random page
* Share two (2) “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page
* BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away! You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
* Share the title and author, too, so that other Teaser Tuesday participants can add the book to their To Be Read (TBR) Lists if they like your teasers!


I'm currently reading Beautiful Creatures by Kami Garcia.  I saw the movie earlier this year and quite enjoyed it, and didn't even realize it was based on a novel until after watching the film.  This will be the last Tease from Beautiful Creatures, as I finished it today. In this scene, Ethan finds himself in the middle of a violent confrontation that he has little chance of surviving...

The Tease:

"Fire is loud, full of rage and chaos and destruction.  And fire was all around me.  The smoke in the air was so thick, I was choking on it.  The heat was singeing the hair right off my arms.  It was like a vision from the locket, or worse, like the last of my nightmares - the one where Lena was consumed by fire."
 -Beautiful Creatures, by Kami Garcia
What's your Tease?


  1. Good teaser. May I ask what you thought of the book? I tried to read it but I couldn't finish it... I just wasn't overly keen.

    Here is my teaser: http://gulp-fiction.blogspot.co.uk/

    Great blog - like the mix of TV and books etc! I am new follower. Can't wait to check out more of your posts.

    Best Wishes,

    1. Hi Amber!! I have to say that I really did enjoy Beautiful Creatures. I've been horrible about writing reviews lately, but at some point I hope to do a review that compares the book and the movie. Both were good, but the book had more detail and felt like a more complete story.

      I especially appreciated the fact that the main POV character was male, which isn't something that I've seen before in YA/NA novels.

      Thanks for following! I'll be heading over to check out your blog and your Tease!

  2. I definitely appreciated the tables turning - usually with these paranormal romance type books it is the girl who finds out some big mystery about the guy etc... I couldn't finish it though. I may watch the movie and see if it changes my mind.

    Thanks for the follow!
