Synopsis
A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright--a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.


You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The 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 spell.

Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.

Review
I ran a poll asking which book out of a list of four i should read next and Beastly by Alex Flinn won! So i got right on to reading this book and found that i really liked it alot and i finished it in only a day! Beastly (connected to the story Beauty and The Beast my favorite Disney story) is basically "Beast's" point of view. Beautiful and cocky Kyle Kingsbury is turned into a beast to mend his selfish mean natured ways and the only way to break the spell is by finding someone who can truly love him no matter what he looks like. Immedietley i think- "Oh god, this guy is doomed!" but by the end i can't help but feel sorry for the guy and i actually started rooting for him! This is the perfect twist on an old fairy tale and im really excited to know that they're currently making a movie based on it! This is really a lovely book and i loved reading it!

  2. Btw, you should make a new poll to see what book you should review next. That'd be sweet!
