⭐3 stars⭐Funny thing, the past. No matter how hard you try to shut it from your mind, you always hear those whispers in your skull.. It's inescapable; a true prison in every sense of the word. Almost like being chased by a predator. The faster you run away, the more it chases you, and the more it de...

I am so happy I got to read this gem of a book guys! After I stared at the cover a little bit, because let's face it, it's gorgeous, and read the blurb, I knew I had to read this book and I'm happy I did. The first thing that stands out when I think about this book is that this is a retelling with...

Not only is the cover of Beauty of the Beast gorgeous, but the story is a beautifully written reimagining of Beauty and the Beast. This is the first novel I've read by Rachel L.

Rachel L. Demeter is a new to me author, so I had no idea what to expect. I chose to read this book because it was a retelling of one of my all-time favourite fairy tales. In addition, I was curious to see how she would handle a timeless tale for a mature audience and I have to say she did a remarka...

This story is a wonderful blend of romance and fairy tale, with a little seasoning from Beauty and the Beast, Cinderella and Phantom of the Opera. Definitely not the children's version either! Isabelle Rose is the sweet and lovely heroine that captures your heart right away. Adam Delacroix and Rapha...

This retelling of one of my absolute favorite fairy tales was exactly how I envisioned an adult version to go. Adam and his back story are quite tragic and explain his character perfectly. The events that lead Isabelle to leave home with her ill father were horrible, no spoilers, promise. The momen...

It's a retelling of classic fairy tale Beauty and the Beast. I think that the author has done justice to the original story, its well-written and captures characters of both 'Beauty' and 'Beast' wonderfully. I enjoyed reading it and I think anyone who likes fairy tales will love this new version of ...

ARC Review: Beauty of The Beast (Fairy Tale Retellings) by Rachel L. DemeterWhat gives Beauty and the Beast the right to be called a classic? Could it be that to this day the story is just as profound as when it was first written? Perhaps, it's the many interpretations of how beauty blossoms out ...
