The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty’s Prince
The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince - Serena Valentino
Villians, Book 2

I Picked Up This Book Because: Picture it: I’m walking in Barnes and Noble one day on a hunt for anime for my niece, I pass these four beautiful covers on a table. My mind immediately says “YOU NEED TO READ THAT! I don’t know or care what it is it’s pretty and villains, yes all systems go” Then I looked at the back of the book and didn’t like the price. So naturally I look in the library. My library doesn’t carry them. Then I get a 60 day trial to Kindle Unlimited and looky what’s available. I’m all over it. It’s the first thing I get.

The Characters:

The Prince/Beast:
Gaston, Witches, Cogsworth:

The Story:

Unfortunately my WHY was more interesting than this story and that was boring. I DNF’d at 40%. We were very in the beast/princes head for much of this time which I detest. I prefer character to interact much more. The only bit we did get was with Circe (the witch who cursed him) and her 3 witch sisters who were unflattering and confusing.



The Random Thoughts:

DNF so no rating

Luck (The Luck Saga #1) by Nemo Euler
Luck - Nemo Euler

Non-stop info dump.
Rating the 40% I actually read. 
The rest of the book might as well be fab, but so far I am not impressed.

The Last Girl (Dominion #1) (Audiobook) - DNF @ 17%
The Last Girl (The Dominion Trilogy Book 1) - Joe Hart

Meh.

 

I'm not one to quibble over present or past tense usually, but the present tense just wasn't working for me for some reason. This is dystopian, about a virus that prevents female births, and it's set one year from now. I need my dystopian to be a lot more in the future than that. And the premise just wasn't interesting, all told. Narrator was all right.

 

Moving on.

The Field: UFO, Alien Abductions, Science Fiction by Glenn Gillis
The Field: UFO, Alien Abductions, Science Fiction - Glenn Gillis

Got to about 47% through the book and gave up. There were too many grammatical and spelling errors, but the worst of it was the continuity errors. Because of this, the story did not flow well and in the end, I had to stop reading. The book could use a professional editor. Sorry.

Did not finish. Barely even started, kept falling asleep. I'll give this book another try later.
