Feature Friday: Beautiful Creatures!

Feature Friday is a new weakly meme hosted here at xo'reads, where I will feature a great book & post two of my favorite (and spoiler free) pages/excerpts, to inspire you to pick it up & discover why I have deemed it feature worthy (& amazing)!
This Weeks Book: Beautiful Creatures

Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)

Chapter **

" She leaned into my shoulder. "Maybe you don't have to be a caster to have power."

I pushed her hair behind her ear. "Maybe you just have to fall for one."

I said it, just like that. no stupid jokes, no changing the subject. For once, I wasn't embaressed, because it was the truth. I had fallen. I think I had always been falling. And she might as well know, if she didn't already, beacuse there was no going back now. not for me.
     She looked up at me, and the whole world dissappeared. Like there was just us, like there would always be just us, and we didn't need magic for that. It was sort of happy and sad, all at the same time. I couldn't be around her without feeling things, without feeling everything.
What are you thinking.
She smiled
I think you can figure it out. you can read the writting on the wall.
And as she said it, there was writting on the wall. It appeared slowly, one word as a time.

It wrote itself out, in the same curling black script as the rest of the room. Lena's cheeks flushed a little, and she covered her face with her hands. "It's going to be really embaressing if everything I think starts showing up on walls."
"You didn't mean to do that?"
You dont need to be embaressd, L.


Chapter **


I was free falling, tumbling through the air.


She called to me, and just the sound of her voice made my heart race.

'Help me!'

She was falling, too. I stretched out my arm, trying to catch her. I reached out, but all I caught was air. There was no ground beneath my feet, and I was clawing at mud. We touched finger­tips and I saw green sparks in the darkness.
Then she slipped through my fingers, and all I could feel was loss.

Lemons and rosemary. I could smell her, even then.

But I couldn't catch her.

And I couldn't live without her. I sat up with a jerk, trying to catch my breath.
