Just the other day, I spent the majority of the read reading Beautiful Chaos, the third book in the Beautiful Creatures series. My kindle told me that when I first picked up the book to read in the morning, I was already about 20% through. This was just me slowly reading a chapter or two a night for a few weeks. The beginning of books always are a bit boring to me as it's just a set up of what's going on and what the problem is.
I tend to go through books relatively quickly and I need to learn how to pace myself so that I don't go broke from reading so many books. This book was no exception. I didn't realize how quickly I would get lost in this book. Usually I don't stay glued to a book before the climax, but this book had me glued 20% through, and when I go through a book that fast, I need to talk about it.
If you haven't read the first two books in the series, or seen the movie of the first book, the series is your standard YA fantasy book. As typical as it is, I get glued every time. Along with the mortal world, the Beautiful Creatures world includes Casters, which I can only describe simply as witches. They each have a certain power, and for this one particular family, on the girl's 16th birthday, they find out if they are a Light or Dark caster. Lena turns out to be an exception in many ways. Ethan, Amma, and Link, are all seeminly normal mortals who end up tangled in Lena's world and the series is based around her 16th birthday and the aftermath.
I think I liked this book the most so far, as I read it the quickest, because you learn even more about the Caster world. It was just very intriguing and gripping. Not necessarily a lot of cliff hangers, but more of a curiosity of how things will end. The book itself sort of ended in a cliff hanger, which I have mixed feelings about, but overall, it was a very good book. 4/5 stars for me!
