Follow No Place To No place to lesson so oing on with my review I may say that this book as you notice reading the title is a fairy tale on ours moderns days You should read it YES if you are a romantic person interesting in find a well written story that will make you cry a little tear o down my face reading his despair at the final subway scene NO if you don t believe in rewrite classicsI was the second kind of person but Alex Flinn surprised me After this book if I find another classic fairy tale take to ours days I ll ive a try Maybe I ll have a reat time and fun like I just had reading Beastly5 stars So this book has been around for awhile and my sister actually had read it when it first came out and when I asked her how she liked it she said It was interesting but kind of cheesy with the internal dialogue It was eh But then I saw the movie trailer so of course I had to read the book and see what the deal was This always happen to me I think It s oing to be made into a movie Oh I Body by Darwin: How Evolution Shapes Our Health and Transforms Medicine gotta read that Then I whip my head around and see I do the same thing like everyone else Final verdict I m definitely romantic than my sister isKyle Kingsbury seems to have everything and anything you would want He sood looking dad is loaded and is envied by his peers With
His Sense Of Entitlement He Doesn T Mind Gloating And sense of entitlement he doesn t mind Blue Guide gloating and his ego on others and he might as well crush other people s self esteem while he s at it Well karma or in this case magic will not let himet away so easily with that He makes the mistake of blowing a irl off and pays dearly for that mistake Kyle ets turned into an actual beast and he has two years from the date to find true love Someone two years from the date to find true love Someone to love him and importantly he has to love them back But is there anyone really out there who can love a beastNo wonder Kendra the witch who places the curse Birth and Fortune: The Impact of Numbers on Personal Welfare gave him two years because Kyle has a lot of things to sort through He reacts how you would expect devastated I would be pretty bummed too everyone is at least a little vain and he has to figure out who he is without his looks He had wrapped up his worth with his appearance and so it comes as uite a shock when that s stripped from him I loved the side characters of the blind tutor and housekeeper They keep him fromoing insane I enjoyed seeing Kyle s character arc who later renames himself Adrian and just how much his perspective shifts I wish I had copied down the uote but I really liked the line that Lindy says The basic Island Girls (and Boys) gist was that once you know someone you see past their looks It s like their looks is not what you first see it s who they are that comes out I believe that s true You do start seeing people for who they are and not what they look like Key message in this bookIt was a bit painful to see how out of touch Kyle was but it does portray his desperation well I rolled my eyes a couple of times when I saw references to Shakespeare but people who read books love to hear about people who love to read books Jane Eyre makes uite a presence here as well and I thought the loose correlation between the two stories was interesting Despite a bit of cheesiness I thoroughly enjoyed reading how Kyle changes to Adrian and how beauty is than skin deepExtra note This has almost nothing to do with the book but every time I would see the word beastly I would think about how for awhile people would say that to substitute cool or awesome You know like say this book was beastly And for those of you who didn t know they made a movie of the book. East who hides by day and prowls by night I'll tell you I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury theuy you wished you were with money perfect looks and the perfect life And then I'll tell you how I became perfectly beast.

Her Thoughts And Feelingsthoughts and feelings s Diary is highly recommendedIt is slow paced read because the setting spans two years Although I usually don t I enjoyed every moment of in this story There are no surprises in the plot but the hows are interestingThe book is filled with references to classics represented in an attractive way For example Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bront is a meaningful symbol in the book I liked when Rochester and Jane was separeted he went to the window and called her name Jane Jane Jane And she heard him and even answered That s what love should be like the person should be part of your soul and you should know what person should be part of your soul and you should know what re feeling all the time I loved the movie too with all the changes compared to the book And of course the cast is amazing My favorite uotes I did not expect to like this book as much as I did It might even be my favorite fairy tale retelling that I ve read so far Awesome cute story Enjoyed it wayy than the movie I wasn t expecting The book Stretching Lessons: The Daring that Starts from Within gave depth to Kyle s character feelings perspective of things and how he saw the world than I thought possible and I m solad for it because it made this an amazing storyI thought this would be a bit boring due to the fact that Kyle was a wealthy news anchor s son and also that entailed him being snobbish rude selfish vain unfeeling and spoiled so overall a prick and so forth but it was an an intriguing well thought out book Lindy was the perfect heroine without even knowing it or trying she was selfless kind considerate smart funny and beautiful inside and out She was the breath of fresh air that Kyle was unconsciously searching for she was his happily ever afteras corny as that may sound Turned out he no longer thought that looks were everything by the end of his story as the beast lol Awesome short read Valuable life lesson everything that shines is not all old You know those rare special times when the movie is better n the book JACKPOT This is oneTo be honest the movie is way way better than this Yeah love may never be uglybut for sure this book is As much as I want to talk about how slow this book is and how incredibly boring and how you can t stand itI don t want to spoil anything CHEESY My advice to you is WATCH THE MOVIE Just like with Nerve by Jeanne Ryan I feel there are too many below average YA books around This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast The fact that I already knew the E place is New York City The time is now It's no deformity no disease And I'll stay this way forever ruined unless I can break the spellYes the spell the one the witch in my English class cast on me Why did she turn me into a ,
