My Feelings:

We all want to be remembered. Charlotte's destiny is to be Forgotten...

Charlotte’s best friend thinks Charlotte might be psychic. Her boyfriend thinks she’s cheating on him. But Charlotte knows what’s really wrong: She is one of the Forgotten, a kind of angel on earth, who feels the Need—a powerful, uncontrollable draw to help someone, usually a stranger.

But Charlotte never wanted this responsibility. What she wants is to help her best friend, whose life is spiraling out of control. She wants to lie in her boyfriend's arms forever. But as the Need grows stronger, it begins to take a dangerous toll on Charlotte. And who she was, is, and will become--her mark on this earth, her very existence--is in jeopardy of disappearing completely.

Charlotte will be forced to choose: Should she embrace her fate as a Forgotten, a fate that promises to rip her from the lives of those she loves forever? Or is she willing to fight against her destiny--no matter how dark the consequences.

My Review:
A Need So Beautiful is one hell of a book and I mean that in a good way. I freaking adored this book.

Charlotte is a young girl, who’s confused, scared and definitely not read to give up on life. I could feel with her and empathize for her. I was connected to her and felt so sad when she find out what it meant to be Forgotten. The relationship Charlotte had with her best friend and boyfriend was so strong and towards the end very emotional.

The plot is easy to follow and is hands down, one of the best I read this year. Yes, I can already say that. It’s unique and I never read anything like this before. Especially the ending. It was sad and unpredictable and even though I cried a bit I still felt satisfied with it.

With an ending that I can’t tell you much about, I’m in desperate need for the second book in this amazing series. What are you waiting for? Go, get a copy.

The second book in the series is:
A Want So Beautiful.

I love it when MC's are easy to relate with. It makes the book so much better :)

Great review, Nina!

I've heard really good things about this one. The plot sounds unique and the romance sounds great. I like that she seems to have a good relationship with her best friend. Too often in YA, the MC is jealous or using her best friend or vice versa.

I'd heard of this first book, but I didn't know a follow up was planned. I like how the titles match.

I don't read many stories about Angels, but this one sounds emotionally powerful and I like stories that stir you, so I think I'll have to try it.

I still have this one on my wishlist. I really need to get it off that list and onto the tbr. Sounds so good despite the crying. ;D

I already added it on my wishlist, can't wait to read!

Great Review Nina!

Ah! I've seen this book at Barnes and Noble all the time I go, but never thought much of it. I tend to judge books by their covers. I admit it. So this one never really caught my eye. But this is a stellar review! And it definitely sounds interesting. Hmm :)
