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.

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.
An amazing book. mostly a twist on beauty and the beast but other fairy tales are in there too. Much much better than the movie
Beastly by Alex Flinn - Another fairy tale twist on Beauty and the Beast. This can be found in the DHS Library, F FLI
This book is a COMING OF AGE fantasy as well as being a CONTEMPORARY fantasy and a FAIRY TALE fantasy. It is a modern day retelling of the fairy tale - Beauty and the beast. In this case, the Beast is a young adult from New York City. He is cursed by a witch for his shallowness and must learn beauty is more than skin deep. Through this ordeal he matures into a better human being.
A modern rendering of Beauty and the Beast, Beastly teaches the age old lesson of seeing the beauty in others. Flinn manages to put this fairy tale into a modern New York high school setting with interesting characters and twists to an old tale.

Modern retelling of Beauty and The Beast. Kyle is transformed into a beast after he is cruel to an unpopular girl at school; the only way to break the spell is to fall in love. Try Alex Flinn's other books, many are retold Fairy Tales.
Beastly is a 2007 novel by Alex Flinn. It is a retelling of the fairytale Beauty and the Beast set in modern-day New York City from the view of the beast. Flinn researched many versions of the Beauty and the Beast story to write her book. Many of these are playfully alluded to in portions of the book, particularly thechat room transcripts in which the character of Kyle talks to other teens who have been transformed into creatures.
One of my favorite books of all time ^_^ Beastly by Alex Flinn

Book Review: The Maze Runner by James Dashner - the latest young adult dystopian series that is being made into a movie. This is a good addition to the young adult dystopian book world. It has real contributions without being just a knock off Hunger Games. In spite of the cliff hanger, there is a real conclusion to the book. (click through for the full review)
The Maze Runner - James Dashner. This is on my 'to read' ebook list. The first of a (trilogy?), this is a young adult series, sounding a tiny bit similar to The Hunger Games. A kid wakes up with no memory, in a place called the Glade, with others just like him. It has me curious, but I'm not expecting excellence like HG.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner. Read this book if you like the hunger games, I did and really liked this trilogy. (:
Young adult lit: The Maze Runner (trilogy) - if you enjoyed The Hunger Games, this book is a good match. It has similar ideas. It's not quite as good as the hunger games, but is still a good read.
The Maze Runner (Maze Runner Series #1) (Maze Runner Trilogy): James Dashner: amazing book!!! A dystopian book for lovers of the hunger games and divergent.
The Maze Runner by James Dashner. Great book! Combine the excitement of The Hunger Games, the mystery of Lost, and the desperation of Lord of the Flies.
The Maze Runner (Book #1) by James Dashner. One of my favorite books!!!!!!!!
