REVIEW

I like paranormal books as much as the next girl, but Dead Beautiful was a little too creepy for me. The summary (and the title) give a hint of what is going on, but I wasn’t really prepared for just how much death would overwhelm the story.

Renee was a girl who would speak her mind. I liked that about her, even though it sometimes got her into trouble. She had a lot going on in her life and she was thrown into a crazy situation at Gottfried Academy.

What I wasn’t so thrilled about was the relationship between Renee and Dante. These two went from nothing to something way too fast. I like a relationship that moves slowly. How can they go from not speaking to each other to dating just like that? Give me a relationship that builds over time.

If you like fast moving relationships and a very dark story, Dead Beautiful may be for you. It wasn’t, however, a book I enjoyed.
