Personally, I couldn’t finish this because it was very boring, and the characters seemed lacking, stereotypical, and just odd. Instant love isn’t my thing, and this ain’t it.

Learning he can’t get everything he wants, and that the heart is not for sale. I enjoyed seeing Kyle’s character arc who later renames himself Adrianand just how much his perspective shifts. It’s no deformity, no disease. Lindy’s appearance is the only thing that separates her from “Beauties” of past.

I loved the side characters of the blind tutor and housekeeper. Is it a good book? It might even be my favorite fairy tale retelling that I’ve read so far. When he plays an beastlg trick on a fat, ugly girl named Flihn, he is cursed to become what he really is – a beast. Jane Eyre makes quite a presence here as well, and I thought the loose correlation between the two stories was interesting.


I really don’t like the cover on this one. You think I’m talking fairy tales? Hardcoverpages. View all 4 comments. I was completely drawn into the book and eventsto the point of picking up the book, reading for five hours and putting the book away; finished. Looks do not determine everything, so even if you don’t have an attractive mien, that doesn’t mean that you’re going to be despised and shunned by others.

His life is perfect, yet deep inside, he isn’t. This always happen to me, I think, It’s going to be made into a movie?

The review must be at least 50 characters long. I thought this would be a bit boring due to the fact that Kyle dbook a wealthy news anchor’s son, and also that entailed him being snobbish, rude, selfish, vain, unfeeling and spoiled 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.

Beastly Volume 1 of Kendra Chronicles. I’m happy that the book is so popular, and if you are reading this bio because the book was assigned for school, I’m happy about that too.


This might be a love fflinn that male readers can stomach, even enjoy. I was the second kind of person, but Alex Flinn surprised me. Yet, as his friends tell him – there is more humanity in his beastly form than in most people.

To me, Kyle isn’t really a bad guy, he just likes to act like he is. When he plays a prank on the wrong girl he is cursed into a beast and we quickly learn this guy had nothing. This probably influenced my interest in witches It also means I can’t use that as a password or security question — and beastlt, I won’t tell you my first pet’s name.

I studied opera in college I’m a coloratura — the really loud, high-pitched sopranos. Then I whip my head around and see I do the same thing like everyone else! He is moved to a private apartment, hidden away from the rest of the world.

This is a retelling of Beauty and foinn Beast. That was also when I learned to be a keen alfx.
