The Beautiful Ones
by Silvia Moreno-Garcia

I loved this book. I loved it so hard. My favorite book I've read in a long time.

I wasn't planning on reading this book in a single sitting, but once I started, I was powerless to stop.

This stand-alone novel had the romantic feel of a classic, giving me the same feeling I had when I first read Love in the Time of Cholera or Anna Karenina. The characters are flawed and relatable; I even found myself sympathetic for the villain.

The Beautiful Ones felt completely different from the author's last novel, Certain Dark Things, but both are strong, satisfying novels. The difference in tone between the two shows the author's talent and breadth, and I look forward to reading absolutely anything else she puts forth.
