excellent
The Life Of Captain Marvel (The Life of Captain Marvel #1-5) - Carlos Pacheco,Margaret Stohl

Very excellent Captain Marvel story where she comes to terms with some of her back history and some of the issues that that has affected her from her past.  I liked it and would like to read more by the author and more about this character.

Beautiful Creatures Graphic Novel
Beautiful Creatures: The Graphic Novel - Cassandra Jean,Margaret Stohl,Kami Garcia

There were no surprises in Gatlin County.
We were pretty much the epicenter of the middle of nowhere.
At least, that's what I thought.
Turns out, I couldn't have been more wrong.
There was a curse.
There was a girl.
And in the end, there was a grave.


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. But even within the overgrown gardens, murky swamps and crumbling graveyards of the forgotten South, a secret cannot stay hidden forever.

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.

In a town with no surprises, one secret could change everything.

 

— I have wanted to read the book for years but never had the time. The manga was perfect because it allowed me to read the story in a short time. I still want to read the full book but for now this was very satisfying and the graphics were really nice. 

 

I am using this for the Supernatural square so I can finally get a bingo!

Review: Beautiful Creatures
Beautiful Creatures - Margaret Stohl,Kami Garcia

I saw the movie years ago and when I learned it was based on a book, I immediately ordered the series... And then it sat on my shelf for years.  [I really need to stop buying books and read the ones I own.

 

Anyway, I pulled this out for Halloween Bingo as my "Southern Gothic" square.  And man you don't get any more southern than the town of Gatlin.  They are hardcore confederates who hate anything that deals with superstition (even though they all frequent the local card reader) they hate outsiders, or anyone who isn't exactly like them.

 

Poor Lena never stood a chance when she came to live with her uncle Macon, the patriarch of the Ravenwood family and a recluse.  If not for the Ravenwood family, the town wouldn't even exist, but that doesn't stop the townsfolk for hating them for being different.  And they are different.  They are a family of casters who were cursed when one of their ancestors made a bargain with a book of magic.  In other caster families each child can chose the light or the dark when they come of age.  But because of the curse, the children of this family have no choice, the book chooses.  Lena is close to coming of age, she's a powerful caster, and there is a worry that she will go dark.

 

This was an interesting story as told from the point of view of Ethan, who falls in love with Lena and gets caught up in her complicated world.  He is a son of Gatlin, but he's not really like them.  And he goes against the grain to be with Lena.  

 

The story was well written and kept my attention.  I'm interested in seeing where the rest of the series goes.
