Do you ever feel 'Beastly'?

Monday, September 13, 2010
So, my boyfriend pointed Beastly by Alex Flinn to me one day at Barnes & Noble. Its odd the books I look at almost every time I'm there but don't always pick up to read. But this is one of those times that I was so glad he showed me it, I just loved Beastly. He had seen the trailer and wants to see the movie, after showing me it, I was hooked and wanted to read it right then.

When I finally did get the books, I didn't want to put it down. I stayed up way too late to finish reading it. Beastly is based in NYC and focused on a "prince" of sorts, Kyle Kingsbury. He's your typical spoiled, rich, pretty boy. Till he meets and angers a witch. She curses him, turns him into a beast. But gives him the chance to escape, if he can find his true love.

I personally think that a book like this was way past over due, and not just cause I'm addicted to faerie tales. But I love finding updated version of faerie tales. Not just from a different point of view but actually giving the younger generation a way to connect to these tales. It's a modern day Beauty and the Beast.
