Sneak Peek Saturday on Reading List  a glimpse into what I am reading currently

Current book:

The Beast Within: A Tale of Beauty's Prince

By Serena Valentino

The Beast Within by Serena Valentino a Sneak Peek on Reading List

Goodreads Summary:

A cursed prince sits alone in a secluded castle. Few have seen him, but those who claim they have say his hair is wild and nails are sharp--like a beast's! But how did this prince, once jovial and beloved by the people, come to be a reclusive and bitter monster? And is it possible that he can ever find true love and break the curse that has been placed upon him?

Sneak Peek:

"It was true: everyone in the village thought she was queen for reading so much, and she didn't exactly behave like other girls. So what if she was more interest in reading about princesses than being on herself?" p 174

Initial Thoughts

Clearly you can guess that I picked this up because of the new movie... in fact in the last month or so I've been all about all Beauty and the Beast retellings and additions. And while I didn't have high expectations for this book, overall it was a let down. This is clearly an MG book, and the story was a bit disappointing from Disney... but for a younger audience it was alright. 

Here are some rules if you decide to join in:

• Pick up whatever book you are reading (non-fiction, fiction, children's... really the sky is the limit)
• Open to any page you have already read
• Share a few “teaser” sentences from somewhere on that page - make it interesting without flipping to a ton of different pages. 
 BE CAREFUL NOT TO INCLUDE SPOILERS! (make sure that what you share doesn’t give too much away -- You don’t want to ruin the book for others!)
• Share the title & author, too, so we can all add your book to our To-Be-Read lists!

You can leave your teaser, author, and title in the comments (click over to the web version if you're on the mobile site). Or write up your own post and join us weekly!  Then you can share your link in the comments, and I will stop over and leave you a comment!!!  YAY!
