    "I read this on a whim. This is another telling on Beauty and the beast but a bland one. Although it adds some unique parts to it, I found it to be very predictable and hard to get through the read. There are much better versions of the type of story out there."

    "I was working 8am to 7pm shifts for the past few years and I wanted to make sure I spend time in the evening with my 15 year old twin daughters. I was looking for something exciting and magical to share with them while they read to themselves at night. I found this amazing book called "Beastly" which is an young adult fantasy and fiction novel that is a retelling of the story of beauty and the beast. This enchanting story is about consequences, redemption, and the transformative nature of love. My daughters are absolutely enchanted and in love with the story. Thank you!"

    "This is a splendid book, with such great themes of fairy tales. With spells and magic and witchcraft, this book really brings the fairy tale theme to life and revives it with a modern feel that will keep you reading until the end for sure."

This version is so good! I was in a trance as I watched it and am so happy I found it. Check it out for yourself."

    " I always enjoy reading a retelling of the classic Beauty and the Beast, and Beastly doesn't disappoint. The author, Alex Flinn, has a flowing style that will keep you captivated throughout. This is a must read for all Beauty and the Beast fans!"

    "Based on the lack of quality of the writing, you'd swear this was a self-published book. It has all the signs of it, anyway. Just reading a few pages was enough to tell me son to stop loading this crap on his Kindle."

    "This book have a traditional fury beast that was pretty good and predictable. It have some total cheesy and love moments that makes easy to read. There were moments in this story when I just wanted to snuggle the characters with love."

    "I was not sure I would like this book because Beauty and the Beast is one of my all time favorite books. I really liked the modern take on this though. I came to really care about the characters as the story progressed, especially when Kyle, the Beast, started to understand more things about his own self. This is definitely one I will read again in the future."

    "If you like fairy tales, especially the original Beauty and the Beast, you'll like this. This is one of those remakes that is actually pretty damn good. The beast substitute is very well written for modern times, and there's a pretty good mix of comedy and seriousness throughout. I liked it."

    "Love is never ugly Now a major motion picture starring Vanessa Hudgens and Alex Pettyfer I am a beast. A beast! Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright. I am a monster. You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll,stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell. Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly."

    "I would recommend this to anyone who enjoys stories that are similar to Beauty and The Beast. This has a very similar plot as Beauty and The Beast, however is told in a more modern and non-fiction way, while still being fiction."

    "Beastly (Kendra Chronicles) is definitely one of the best romance books about pretty shy girls. This retelling has been done tastefully and with the utmost respect for the original material. I found it quite a treat to read as the writing was exceptional. I'll probably give it to my daughter who I know will like it as well!"
