Beautiful Creatures: The Manga - Kami Garcia,  'Margaret Stohl' I've been slightly curious about this series since the books and movie have been so popular, so when I saw this at the library I figured what the hell. At least now I know that this series isn't for me. I do see the appeal for young'uns and teenagers however, and I did actually like the artwork of this manga/graphic novel adaptation. However, there were huge plot holes and inconsistencies (I kept thinking I had skipped pages because the jumps in dialogue made no sense). This could be because this is probably targeted for fans of the series who have already read the books, I don't know. I just didn't care for it. It was one of those "meh" books. Like I wouldn't go through the trouble of actually renting the movie, but I wouldn't be opposed if someone just turned it on in front of my face. If that makes sense.
