Beautiful Creatures: The Manga - Kami Garcia,  'Margaret Stohl' This book was rather disappointing but not in the "usual" way. I first read reviews of this book from friends here on Goodreads. Most of those reviews did not praise the book, but I knew from those very same reviews that this would be a type of book I would enjoy. So, I watched the movie. I thought it was pretty good, so I decided to read the book. Bought it online... received it a few days ago... and realized I had bought the graphic novel rather than the actual novel itself.Fail.So, I've read it anyway.The story is still pretty good, but as a graphic novel, I think it really falls short. It's very basic and cliched. I still want the novel, damn it!One day.
