message 10: by MLL (new)

MLL Entreat Me is currently number 12 and 21 on this list.


message 11: by MLL (new)

MLL Number 3 and number 7 are also the same Beauty and the Beast a retelling book by Robin McKinley.


message 12: by Steffi (new)

Steffi Surely The Wrath and the Dawn shouls be on this list! It's amazing! :D


message 13: by Beth (new)

Beth anyone know the healthiest version of this book on the list? Like, where beauty and beast have the healthiest relationship throughout the book? I don't want to read all of them.... (but also, I'm kindof almost prepared to do so... lol. almost)

I've been in search of the best portrayal of healthy relationships in beauty and the beast for a while. Also, thanks for the list and to everyone whos voted.


message 14: by MLL (new)

MLL It may not be quite what you meant but you should try Entreat Me by Grace Daven. It is not a traditional B and B story. It is a double romance with a mash up of Taming of the Shrew and Beauty and the Beast.


message 15: by MLL (new)

MLL Beast in Shining Armour by Cassandra Gannon is another nontraditional tale. In that one they have known each other since childhood and everything he has said or done has been wrong. Despite a lifetime of miscommunication they are perfectly matched. It is both a heartbreaking and hilarious tale.


message 16: by Amelia (new)

Amelia  Trunnell I just discovered this page exsisted and I was just wondering if any of you strongly recommend any of the books currently listed.


message 17: by MLL (new)

MLL It is very subjective. Numbers 10-Entreat Me, 72-Beast In Shining Armour and 84-Beauty's Brother are my favorites. But they are listed by most popular so you might start with 1 and work your way down the list reading the reviews to see what is your cup of tea.
