Dark Divine vs. Beautiful Creatures

Thursday, May 13, 2010 |
These past two weeks I've been participating as a judge in the YA Bloggers Debut Book Battle, making the decision between The Dark Divine and Beautiful Creatures. Which will go on to the next round?

For me, this was an easy decision, based on mostly on one factor: the quality of the writing. Both of these stories have incredible plot lines; they're actually similar in their paranormal aspects. However, The Dark Divine's writing just couldn't match up to Beautiful Creatures, which is filled with a Southern lilt that's almost impossible to top. Truly, both were fun reads, but I found Beautiful Creatures to be much more enjoyable to read (despite its length!)

I could probably go on for paragraphs and paragraphs, detailing character development and such, but I wanted to put this in a quick nutshell. Please head on over to The Shady Glade to read more about the book battle!
