It’s got to be a daunting prospect to retell the Beauty/Beast plot, considering how many times it’s been replayed, and not just in movies but in other books, too. (Beastly comes to mind.) But BEAUTY’S BEAST does a fairly good job of giving the Beast a new spin and sets the story in a nicely vague old world setting. In the end, though, it mostly pales in comparisons.

AS TWILIGHT FALLS is one of those romances that I felt a little guilty about liking so much. It was fun, but the more I think about it after the fact, the more I feel it wasn’t as great as I thought. However, while I was reading it, I couldn’t put it down, and the romance between Kadie and Rylan totally sucked me in.
