    "A love story with all the twists and turns of a real romance. It is a really good read if you like young romance and sexy hot male characters. I don't think that it should be very relevant to southern books though as this is not a main factor in the story."

    "This was a nice book and had great charm, especially with its setting in North Carolina. I just felt that the male characters were a little too strong and showy, almost in an overbearing way. Still, the book had a wonderful romance story despite that."

    "Teenage years tends to be really special times when one grows up and starts reflecting upon those years and how one was very naive and clear-headed. The story of Sophie in Hex Hall by Rachel Hawkins, a teenage character who is different than most people around her, is very representative of young ladies and accurately depicts the implicit emotional struggles. What I found fascinating about the events that are meant to be fiction and made up, is the notion that these events could somewhat be translated to our inner fights, fights with our inner demons in our heads that pertain to us starting from teenage years to adult ages. Those demons in our heads always try to demean our emotions and belittle our self-esteem. Rachel Hawkins is truly marvelous is capturing these phenomena in metaphorical sense through the life of Sophie"

    "Beautiful Creatures is a really good read for people into romance in that fantasy style with a hint of supernatural. It is a great example of a romance book but I wouldn't say so much southern romance but it has a splash of that style as well. Great read that will keep you coming back till the last page is read and it is a great all around read. "

    "Assuming that Texas is conmsiderd a Southern novel and for the sake of this question I will (a bit of a stretch with location but still southern anyway for a guy from NJ) and given it high rating I would rate it a 4 . Also the writer has written many books so it seems she is popklar also"

    "Installment #3 in the Beautiful Creatures series, this book while set in the South, isn't a traditional Southern Romance book. It will appeal to young adult reader who enjoy a romance with a supernatural twist. The book is mildly predictable though still very entertaining. A good addition to a collection of Southern Romance books, but not necessarily the best example. "

    "Being a southerner and having been to countless Mardi Gras parades, this book is a fun, romantic turn of events that could potentially happen in the artistic city of New Orleans. Rescued by a Kiss written by Colleen Mooney also doubles as a mystery novel as well."
