    Lena Duchannes is unlike anyone the small Southern town of Gatlin has ever seen, and she's struggling to conceal her power and a curse that has haunted her family for generations. Ethan Wate, who has been counting the months until he can escape from Gatlin, is haunted by dreams of a beautiful girl he has never met. When Lena moves into the town's oldest and most infamous plantation, Ethan is inexplicably drawn to her and determined to uncover the connection between them.

    If you could sum up Beautiful Creatures in three words, what would they be?

    Better than expected


    What did you like best about this story?

    You get Ethan's point of view. He is on the outside of "caster" world and you see what he is going through when he realizes his boring town isn't that boring.


    Which character – as performed by Kevin T. Collins – was your favorite?

    Ridley and Link


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The winter dance was a scene from Carrie. Wet gooey snow instead of blood and Ridley making them mean kids pay by ruining the dance was funny and Macon dying was sad.


    Any additional comments?

    I couldn't hear the narrator during the dreams. His voice was too low. The background noise was louder than the narrator. My friend has the book, I read Ethan's dreams.

    There are good reasons Peru is off-limits to Magnus Bane. Follow Magnus’s Peruvian escapades as he drags his fellow warlocks Ragnor Fell and Catarina Loss into trouble, learns several instruments (which he plays shockingly), dances (which he does shockingly), and disgraces his host nation by doing something unspeakable to the Nazca Lines.

    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Learning about his childhood. So sad about what his mother did.

    It seemed so simple: Defeat the Tonton, rescue her kidnapped brother, Lugh, and then order would be restored to Saba’s world. Simplicity, however, has proved to be elusive. Now, Saba and her family travel west, headed for a better life and a longed-for reunion with Jack. But the fight for Lugh’s freedom has unleashed a new power in the dust lands, and a formidable new enemy is on the rise. What is the truth about Jack? And how far will Saba go to get what she wants?

    When Thomas wakes up in the lift, the only thing he can remember is his first name. His memory is blank. But he's not alone. When the lift's doors open, Thomas finds himself surrounded by kids who welcome him to the Glade - a large, open expanse surrounded by stone walls.

    If you could sum up The Maze Runner in three words, what would they be?

    A good story


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Maze Runner?

    The Grievers climbing the wall after Thomas and him swinging away like Tarzan. Alby's reaction to being stung, and Chuck's death.


    What does Mark Deakins bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The difference speaking. Didn't think of Newt as Irish. I enjoyed it.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Ming Ho is funny. Gally is a jerk. I liked Chuck and was very sad when he died. I was glad when Thomas lost it and beat Gally up.
