That’s how his trouble begins, by deciding to put a prank on an ugly girl called Kendra. And I wasn’t interested in his redemption story, and I am pretty sure I started skim-reading two thirds of the way through. I am a monster. Instead of the Beauty we get from usual fairy tale lore, our beauty is a shy, sweet, book smart, average looking girl named Lindy.

I was born on Long Island and grew up on a street called Salem Court. But, what do you expect from the child of a TV News Dad who would rather risk his child’s life than to have him looking like a monster, a Dad who ships his kid of to a house to live alone with the exception of a maid and tutor.

Beastly can teach us a lot about people in these times of fallen taboos and lack of values, but also about the kindness and the beasts within our own souls. View all 25 comments.

But, circumstances fall to his advantage when a drug dealer comes along and tries to rob him. I don’t really think this book would have been very interesting for older teens, year-olds is a target audience. While there is nothing wrong with it being from the Beast’s perspective I felt like it was a very cliche foretelling.


I liked when Rochester bdastly Jane was separeted he went to the window and called her name: A Torch Against the Night. This is a good book for teens and even enjoyable for adults. There are some good moments in the book. Third, the relationship development. Lists with This Book. Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me.

Breathing Underwater deals with the serious and all-too-common problem of dating violence. You think I’m talking fairy tales? A Court of Frost and Starlight. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read.

To me, Kyle isn’t really a bad guy, he just likes to act like he is. Add to that a cute blind teacher and a maid who sometimes speaks perfect English even though she shouldn’t be able to, and you’ve got a great set of character that really make the book worth reading.

With his sense of entitlement he doesn’t mind gloating and shining his ego on others, and he might as well crush other people’s self-esteem while he’s at it.

He is moved to a ‘Beauty and the Beast’ has always been a favorite fairy tale for me. You can remove the unavailable item s now or we’ll automatically remove it at Checkout. Or else, he will remain as a beast forever. As I grew up, I learnt more about the origins of the story, I became intrigued. It started very strong, but fizzled a little by the end.

All he wants to do is just laugh in her face If so do you have to read one to understand another or can you read whichever whenever without missing parts of the story? When he plays an evil trick on a fat, ugly girl named Kendra, he is cursed to become what he really is – a beast. Lindy appears in the middle of the book. The shallow playboy learns to love for the first time, and to sacrifice – to let the one most precious to him go free and choose her own destiny, even though that means that he may never return to his human form.


I am a beast.

He thinks it is impossible. I’ll end my review with a quote from Beastly: Oct 11, Kristy rated it really liked it. At last, Rob Kingsbury decides to refrain his son in a secluded area so that no one would notice his presence. Full review posted on my blog on June 10, Fans of Alex Pettyfer, peeps who loves fairy tale retellings. Something along these lines And, NPH is the blind teacher!!! I enjoyed this new take on Beauty and the Beast. View all 3 comments. He has 2 years to find someone who will truly love him as he is, and whom he must also love.

Will he learn to observe the beauty in his daily life? When Adrian see’s her he realizes she’s the girl he gave the rose corsage to a year ago on the night that the witch kendra cursed him. Even though I’m years behind, I’m looking forward to reading the other books in this series.

I lost all my respect for Lindy, fawning all over Kyle; she lost her backbone. Add cover to a book. Kyle never saw Lindy as someone beautiful, but for Adrian, she’s like one of his roses – pure, and gentle, and shining from the inside-out. When she kisses him, the curse is lifted. Nonetheless, I learned how to read, and my second grade teacher, Dr. I later learned that my mom tossed it out when she was cleaning my drawers. There are beneath him.
