+10 I want Beautiful Darkness because I got an ARC of Beautiful Creatures from ComicCon last summer, so I literally have been waiting FOREVER for this second book. I love to do reviews of upcoming books for College Lifestyles and I enjoyed doing the Beautiful Creatures one so, so much. Reading a book from Ethan's perspective was extremely refreshing (usually when they are in first person, we get a female perspective) and I cannot wait to jump into it again!

+10 for reason: I want Beautiful Darkness because when I got Beautiful Creatures without reading it, I thought I wouldn't be good. Then I read it and I was like HOLY COW. Now i'm wondering if Beautiful Darkness will live up to it's expectations (I'm sure it'll be even more HOLY COW-ish ;)Reading is my fountain of youth (even though i'm 14 but you get it ­čśë

Wow, awesome contest! I would love to enter the Clockwork Angel ones, but I'm rather camera shy and I don't have anything impressive to do. I could probably sit and do a dialogue about why I'd love to have it, but I don't think that would make me a winner. Especially when there are SO many other talented people. ­čÖé

So, I will enter for the other fantastic one, Beautiful Darkness! ­čśÇ

+5 for becoming a follower

+10 for a reason: I would love to win Beautiful Darkness to read for myself, but I have different plan in mind. As much as I would like to read it, I'm currently in the process of collecting books and making up a plan to present to my towns Board of Directors regarding the Young Adult section of our only library. Our town only has one library, and one small family owned bookstore that is outrageously priced. So where are all the YA going to get books to read? It's really sad, especially when we have a decent sized library but the YA section is one side of a bookshelf. That's it. Seriously. And the majority of the books are old and in bad condition. Or Twilight.

Anyway, I'm trying to get funding to make a new section for the YA readers, get more books, and collect sources to keep receiving new ones. However, I'd like to start it off with some decent books, and if I won this, I would give this to our library so all our town's YA could read such wonderful books.

And, my email. :]

+10 for telling me why you want Beautiful Darkness : So i'm a huge fan of beautiful creatures since I've heard about that book in november. I've read it in january because the book was release in France in January. This book has a little bit of everything I love it it, and proves why I LOVE YA literature. When I first bought Beautiful Creatures, I joked about how big it was for a YA, but I loved every minute of it. And I can't wait for the release of Beautiful Darkness so if I can win this contest and read it earlier I'll be so happy :D. I really like the authors too we can speak naturally with Kami or Margaret with Facebook. I'm also the french webmiss of the french blog of Beautiful Creatures you can see it here : http://sixteen-moons.skyrock.com/.

+10 Why I want Beautiful Creatures:

I think the question is who doesn't want it? I want it because I'm selfish and I would like to own the book before it releases. I have to admit I wasn't a fan since the day it came out. My friend had bought it and said it was amazing, but I never got around to reading it. So one day I did decide to read it and I got the book. That night I stayed up until two in the morning needing to find out what happened. I ended up going to bed cause I had school. But it took me two days to read that book. It was breath taking. Amazing. Insane. Legit. Those words might not fit your description, but they are words that I think of when this book comes to mind. I love Ethan and Lena and if they were real, they would probably be my friends. I'm super picky, and this book made the top of my list. The writing is detailed and the characters are so realistic it feels like I'm in the book with them. I'm 14 and I'm trying to write a book of my own and Kami & Margaret are my fave authors ! I look up to them ­čśÇ

I want Beautiful Darkness because from the first moment I read Beautiful Creatures I entered fully into the world Caster and fell in love with the story, the characters, the casters, and the love between Lena and Ethan.

I also believe that It's a VERY great story, fascinating, wonderful and different and I'm really intrigued to know who holds this book :D!.

I'd heard all these great things from everywhere about the book. SO when I finally picked it up, I was absolutely engrossed in it! Now, I can hardly wait at all for BD.
