I personally thought this book was shallow and they characters within it didn't have any depth.
The story also came of as very vain... Poor girl changing everything about herself to join Peachville elite.
====MOCK HARPER POV====
"Last week you were being rude and mean to me and now you being all nice, why?" I ask.
"I realise it was wrong to treat you differently just because your poor without a family and live at Shadowford. There's something spec...more
The characters were consistent and Harper was easy to empathise with, as she was kind of clever and talented without being over-perfect. She still made mistakes, but not to the degree of unbelievable stupidity some characters in other books are.
This book only drops a star because it is a bit short, but the length suits...more
Sarra Cannon did an amazing job bringing to life Harper Madison, a foster kid who has special abilities. When she moves to Peachville, not everything is as it seems, which Madison soon finds out. I wondered what happened when things went from bad to perfect for Harper, but I definitely didn't see the end coming! OMG! Wow! That ju...more

Harper was a great character at the beginning of the novel, but I have a hard time believing that she succumbed to the popularity contest an...more
This book was awesome!
It was like a combination of Charmed, The Secret Circle, and Twilight.
Not really Twilight, just in the fact that there was a group of extremely beautiful people that everyone admired and envied, basically.
Harper Madison has gotten kicked out o...more
What really drew me into the story was the whole idea of a Stepford-like town where everything seems perfect on the outside, but has a sinister feel to it and a dark...more
BEAUTIFUL DEMONS is a short story focusing on Harper Madison- a 16year old girl who has been in the foster care system since she was a young child. 6 placements in one year had finally taken its’ toll on her caseworker, so Harper was being shipped to Shadowford Plantation-a ‘home’ for special cases. And Harper knew she was a special case-damaged / a broken girl as Mrs. Shadowford exclaimed. And the only thing close to Harper’s heart was a sapphire pendant given to...more
You know you're in the wrong town when a random dude helps you (commands you?) to pick out a backpack that sports the same colors as everyone else.
OR IS IT THE RIGHT TOWN? It's hard for our heroine (or us) to know for sure, because she keeps having her memory altered. Or something. But there are powers. Women have them. Except for the dude. Who she keeps forgetting. In a literal sense. Who begs her no...more
Beautiful Demons pulls you in from the first page and never lets down in the pacing. It's a fast and very entertaining read. I've been wanting to read this series for a while, because of the pretty covers and titles. Currently Beautiful Demons is available for free, but I don't know how long that will last.
I really liked the main character, Harper Madison. She gets moved in a group home after bouncing around from foster care homes, due to getting into tro
The second thing I really liked about it was the main character, Harper. Harper's a sixteen year old orphan in the foster care system in Georgia. She's scared, has power she doesn't understand, and has a habit of hurting her foster families when she's upset. This resonated with me because I was raised by my...more
This book is definitely a plot driven book. It's more about the twists and turns of it all than it is about its characters. In fact, the only fleshed out, or character with beginnings of being fleshed out, is Harper. Harper is a prett...more
Now onto the story Harper has been in so many different foster homes that she has lost count if she can't make it work at Shadowford Home she will be going to Juvenile...more
This wasn't exactly what I expected. It was far from it, actually.
I went into this book knowing I'd get mad, and a little confused. But I didn't expect to be mind-blown.
I am very upset with the ending, because, well...I like Jackson better. In alll honesty I hope drake dies or something terrible happens to him, because...well HE ISN'T JACKSON!!!
Umm....I was upset when Jackson didn't jump in...more
So, what is...more
Looking for something a little different to read, I came across a review for Beautiful Demons. Not ever have been a cheerleader myself, the opening line of the book's description pulled me in instantly.
In Peachville, even the cheerleaders have a dark side...
And here I thought only the cheerleaders of my high school had a dark side.
Harper Madison has been tossed from foster home to foster home only to wind u...more
The first two chapters took a little while for me to get settled, but the further I read into the book, the more I was vested into the plot. It took me another week to buy/read the four remaining books that follow...more

"They're popular because they're cheerleaders," he said.
I rolled my eyes. "What is it with this town and cheerleaders?”
