Melissa | 1256 comments I love this book, and it's short enough that I think I can indulge in a reread.


Shaitarn | 1865 comments Just making sure I remember this one.


Bill | 2130 comments This is great. I just took it out from the library yesterday.

message 10: by Bill (new) - rated it 4 stars

Bill | 2130 comments I finished already. It was really good.


Shaitarn | 1865 comments Starting late, but I am starting!


Shaitarn | 1865 comments Just started part 3. I love how McKinley fleshed out the backstory of the family. Looking forward to Beauty's meeting with the Beast!


message 13: by carol. (new) - added it

carol. | 4 comments Looooved this story as a teen/ya. Must have read it five or six times. At least.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments I need something light. Starting this today.


Shaitarn | 1865 comments Just finished. 3 and a bit stars rounded up.


Diana Stormblessed (dashichka) | 3908 comments This was just what I needed. I wish that (view spoiler) Overall 3.5 stars but I rounded up cuz I just needed something light and happy.


message 17: by Bill (new) - rated it 4 stars

Bill | 2130 comments I think I rated this higher also because I needed something light and happy. (view spoiler)


Shaitarn | 1865 comments That's a good point, Bill. (view spoiler)

I'd be interested in seeing another more modern retelling (modern as in attitude, not setting).
