      2 stars Thank you to the author and NetGalley for giving me a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review Disney s Beauty and the Beast without the musicals.I can see this book being enjoyable for a teen audience, or those who like a simple, understated read but for me, it was incredibly boring and unexciting The pacing, the story, and the characters Justboring.I also feel like the author was trying too hard to bulk up the story with descriptive words for the surroundings, or the 2 [...]

      I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review 2.5 stars rounded up A retelling of Beauty and the Beast, told from the Beast s perspective in a YA tone I was drawn to the new take on one of my favourite fairy tales, and the cover, which is beautiful but a lot of this just didn t really work for me One thing I really liked was the magical aspects, which manage to keep this feeling like a fairy tale without overpowering the story The secondary characters, the castle and oth I rece [...]

      Check out Happy Indulgence Books for reviews Trigger warnings abusive behaviour, manipulation, voyeurism, attempted suicideI was excited to read this book because I loved Beauty and the Beast, but within a few pages, I couldn t help but have major creepy vibes at Beast s perspective Not only do we get to hear his terribly isolating thoughts at having to lure a woman to his den only to keep him company, but we also witness his voyeuristic hobby of him spying on her family It s like [...]

      The Beast s Heart by debut Australian author Leife Shallcross is a retelling of the classic French fairy tale La Belle et la B te , told from the perspective of the Beast Like many lovers of fairy tales, it is one of my own personal favourites and I have drawn upon its symbols and structures in my own novel, The Beast s Garden, which is set in Nazi Germany Leife Shallcross s novel is a much conventional fairy tale retelling, set in a magical world of castles and forests and curses I do The Beast [...]

      How did the Beast feel, what were his thoughts in the classic Beauty and the Beast tale Leife Shallcross gives us her version of what emotional turmoil was that lay within THE BEAST S HEART.Do NOT expect a rehash of the classic, expect a darker, emotionally grueling tale The Beast gives his perspective, from his self loathing, his loneliness, to the empty pit in his chest.This is not a rapid fire tale, but there is a depth to it that puts a new perspective on what transpired between the y How di [...]

      I received a finished copy of this novel from the publisher in exchange for an honest review All thoughts are my own.I remember first stumbling across the news of this book on Twitter and knowing I instantly needed it in my life the trouble was I had to wait several months for it to even become available for review The wait was completely worth it.The Beast s Heart is a magically woven retelling of the everlasting classic Beauty and the Beast Shallcross does the original story justice with h I r [...]

    7. Kayleigh Brindley on said:

      Where has this book been all my life As with a lot of fellow readers and romance lovers, Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favourite fairy tales and so the prospect of reading a re telling of the story from the Beast s perspective was too good an opportunity to miss What s strange is that reading this book didn t feel like reading just another re telling of Beauty and the Beast It s a story that is entirely it s own and in certain aspects, extremely different than the original story Whe [...]
