Read in August, 2011

A book that managed to be both highly original and very much a Twilight knockoff.

And y'all thought it was impossible.

In storyline structure, Dead Beatiful is fairly similar to Twilight : a lot of 'sexual tension', takes a while for things to build up, with a little bit of conflict towards the end. Also, Dante, the love interest, is very similar to Edward Cullen, in that 'perfect in every conceivable way' sense.

But (and I don't count this as a spoiler because it's obvious from looking at the cover) the type of paranormal creature Dante is was one I have only encountered here. What exactly that is, I won't tell you, because that would spoil it. However, it's very unlikely you'll be able to guess it, because I think this author made it up.

So... that element was okay. Just wish it could have been shorter.
