Haul - Books
Anyway, since becoming sucked into the booky world right towards the end of last year, I've noticed that Beautiful Creatures is all the rage at the moment. The movie version of the first book in this series comes out next week, and of course everyone is scrambling to read the book before then. Honestly, I'm not even positive what it's about. I know there is magic, or witchcraft. I think the girl needs to decide which side she'll choose . . . good or dark, something like that.
I've looked at Walmart pretty much every time I've been there the last month or so, and have never seen these books there. I thought it was weird, considering it's supposedly going to be the next big thing, 'the next Twilight.' A friend of mine really REALLY wants to read the books and see the movie, and was freaking out that she can't find them anywhere. Well, imagine my surprise this morning when I finally saw the whole set prominently displayed on the Walmart shelf! Finally! I immediately sent her a text, cyberscreeching about it. LOL
There is no way I'll have the first one read before the movie comes out. I'm still working through the Mortal Instrument series. I don't even know if I'll go see this movie in the theater because A) we just don't go see many movies in the theater, and B) that would be spending money we're TRYING not to spend. I know, you're laughing at me on that point. I'm laughing too.
But anyway . . . YAY for books!!!! I definitely need more bookshelves now.
Have you heard of Beautiful Creatures? Will you go see the movie? Or read the book(s)?
