Trisha (trishabisen) | 2222 comments This thread is to discuss A Curse So Dark and Lonely, the first book in the Cursebreakers Series by Brigid Kemmerer.

Pages: 484 pages

Length: 1 Month (June)

Participants: Ruthie, Shareen.

Everyone reads at their own pace during a Buddy Read. Because participants can be at different parts of the book at different times, it is extremely important to mark spoilers so that the book is not ruined for someone who is not as far along as others!!!

Mark spoilers by placing {spoiler} before the text and {/spoiler} after the text but use the < and > instead of the { and }.


Happy Buddy Reading!

SarahKat | 3071 comments I read this in January and couldn't put it down. I may join you for the second book next month if you're all still planning to read it :)

Dikshita (Nightime BookNerd) | 193 comments Hey guys! I have just finished reading the book. I am sure I would have finished it a lot earlier if I wasn’t preoccupied with my work.

I love the book so much. It is worth the hype. I would give it 4.5 stars. I am giving half a star less because when I reached the middle of the book, I felt some 50-to pages were a little dragged.

But overall, it is such a beautiful retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I am really excited to read the second book next month.

What do you guys think about the book? What did you like the most about the book? Eagerly waiting to hear your thoughts.

SarahKat | 3071 comments Diskhita, here's my review that has all my favorite things and "meh" things. I gave it 5 stars. https://www.goodreads.com/review/show...

It's spoilery so those who haven't finished it yet should proceed with caution.
