I am a Beast. A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright -- a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster. You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now.

A book that's definitely worth reading. #Beastly #AlexFlinn
Beastly by Alex Flinn. Really enjoyed this young adult novel, a modern retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I love fairy tale remixes and this one was well done.
Alex Finn is obsessed with fairy tales and brings us her latest story, Beastly, in which she puts a spin on a modern day Beauty and the Beast, a humorous, young-love, high school twist. Kyle Kingsbury rules the school and has every girl drooling over him; he has a famous father, money to throw around, and the hottest girl attached to his arm – nothing can stand in his way of popularity. Until one day he meets; Kendra, an outcast and the new girl at Tuttle high school, his whole world is about to be turned upside down when he decides to invite the ugly girl to the school dance but does he really plan on walking into his kingdom with a girl who wears black all year round? Beastly is about transformation; how a 16 year old boy who was completely self centered and shallow turns into a caring selfless young man over the course of two years. He truly evolves from beginning to end. The character of Lindy, the “Plane Jane” girl who would rather study than have friends just so she can get away from her low life drug addicted father, is a rather interesting twist on the way Belle is usually portrayed in this fairy tale. I enjoyed how the author makes Lindy need “Adrian” just as much as Adrian needs her, a kind of co-dependent relationship that unfolds makes you root for both of them, not just the beast. As cheesy as it may be, I really enjoyed the romance and of course the happily ever after ending. I would recommend this to any young adult (it was rather refreshing reading a young adult book that finally didn’t feel x-rated) and just anyone who is waiting in anticipation for the movie to come out, read this first, it will definitely put you in the mood for some love’n. “I thought of Esmeralda, unable to look at Quasimodo. I was a monster. A monster…Now I was closer, her eyes traveled up and down my body, taking in my clawed hands. Finally, she nodded, and I knew from her eyes she felt sorry for me.” (pg.182) xoxo Sugar

The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins #Books #HungerGames - Read
The Hunger Games by Suzanne Collins. another book on my top ten list of all time favorite books. Its disturbing in the best possible way. Its a series that doesn't coddle you and isn't coated in sugar like many of the recent young adult litereature(Twilight). Its gritty and grim, and will leave you worn out from an emotional roller coaster. It has a depth to it that many YA fiction authors are afraid to use. And speaking of YA Fiction, this series isn't limited to youth, it can touch those of any age. Definitely a series worth reading.
"The Hunger Games" by Suzanne Collins. A great book and great movie.
