Beauty and the Beast – A GIF Post

Who doesn’t love Beauty and the Beast? Yeah, the endings are usually predictable (as are all fairytale retellings) but they’re still awesome reads. One of my favorite (and my sister’s!) fairytales just so happens to be Beauty and the Beast. Here are some YA retellings featuring B&B as the backdrop!

Beast

OF BEAST AND BEAUTY by Stacey Jay
I still have to read this :) But it sounds amazing.

Cruel Beauty

CRUEL BEAUTY by Rosamund Hodge
This one was awesome. I loved the beast and the main character and the entire plot.

Beastly 

BEASTLY by Alex Flinn
Doesn’t that synopsis just scream to be picked up? But then so did the author’s other novel, TOWERING, and that was a major disappointment.

BEAST 

BEAST by Donna Jo Napoli
Beauty and the Beast, the Persian version! Plus, DJN is supposed to be an awesome author.

Beast 

BEAUTY AND THE BEAST by Wendy Mass
Beauty and the Beast: The One Who Didn’t Run Away. Such a pretty title.

Why thank you, Lumiere.

What’s your favorite fairy tale? I might just compile a list of its YA retellings next week!

    Beauty and the Beast is my favorite childhood fairy-tale, followed closely by Cinderella.

    East of the Sun, West of the Moon has the same concept as Beauty and the Beast, but it feels so much more enchanting, so that’s my favorite. :D
