And from somewhere past the mountains that separated the Beast‘s valley from those beyond, behind them, always to the north, the Firebird‘s song drifted in the air, and called to them, and waited.

Yeva is not suited to the life of wealth and stature her father has set out for her, she longs to be back in the woods of her youth. When her father loses his fortune, the family is forced to live in destitute in his lowly cabin. Then her father goes missing in the woods hunting an elusive beast. Yeva is compelled to leave her sisters and find her father and the beast, no matter the cost. #FairytaleReadingChallenge @Charityann

We thought too much.
Because while hatred is a fire only man feels, he does not hate the beast that comes in the night. Mankind fears it, fights it, drives it off, but he does not hate it. No one hates the bear, the wolf. They don't hate the wind or the snow. They don't hate the death.
They hate each other.

It was nice retelling. A little different than the original story. I love the story about the Beauty and the beast but that was really different. And that different was beautiful on this book

I really enjoyed this Beauty & the Beast retelling. It was creative without being ridiculous, if that makes sense. I liked the main character and didn't feel like she was obnoxiously "I hate being a girl" like so many of these retellings tend to be. I'll put a spoiler below for the one odd bit of the ending that didn't work for me.

#BookSpinBingo progress - doing awesome with those free spaces!! ?

TheAromaofBooks It seemed extremely weird to me to not just not have the two main characters get married in the end, but to specifically say that they didn't. “Her family would ask them eventually when they intended to be wed, and Yeva and Eoven would look at each other and realize that it hadn't occurred to either of them. Perhaps someday they would marry...“ ??? Considering the time period/culture where the book is set, it felt weird to conclude with ⬇ 2y
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) “oh we love each other so much that we live together but haven't even considered getting married even though literally no one lives together in our old-timey village so this literally doesn't fit with the entire rest of the book.“ I'm also old-timey myself & never feel like concluding a romance with “they moved in together“ has the same vibe of genuine commitment & foreverness as getting married. In this case, it just felt very awkward. 2y

TheAromaofBooks @Read-y_Picker - Hello!! So my original challenge is #BookSpin, wherein participants make a list of 20 books they've been meaning to read. On the 2nd of every month I draw 2 numbers (BookSpin/DoubleSpin) & everyone tries to read that number book from their list - so everyone is reading different books, but the same numbers, if that makes sense haha BookSpinBingo is an addition to that challenge for folks who want to read more than 2 books. You ⬇ 2y
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) still post your list, but I draw all 20 numbers & fill them in (as you can see above) & people read those numbered books from their lists to try & score a bingo. I have a master post with more details here - https://www.litsy.com/web/post/1989556 - but basically if you make a list of books & tag me when you do, you can play along! You're welcome to jump in this month (just let me know & I'll tag you on the posts with the numbers/bingo ⬇ 2y
TheAromaofBooks (cont'd) card, or I can add you to the tag list to give you a reminder to make your list & play in October. Just let me know if you have any questions or anything - I tend to get rambly & sometimes leave out critical information 😂 @Read-y_Picker 2y
Read-y_Picker Super! Thanks for the info 😁 I‘ll take some time to clean up and work on my list if you would please add me in For October. Exciting! 2y
TheAromaofBooks @Read-y_Picker - Yay!! I've added you to October's tag list!! I usually post a reminder about a week before the 2nd so everyone has plenty of time to get their lists organized!!! 2y

This book was exactly what I was looking for: Magic, adventure and romance. I loved this Beauty and the Beast retelling for so many reasons. The magical forest and creatures within it, the way the plot unfolded, and the bravery and intelligence of Yeva. I also adored her sisters and how close they all were.

I‘m a big fan of retelling fairytales with a new twist. This version of Beauty and the Best did not let me down. I did wish there was more to the last part but then again that is my desire, wanting.

I finally sat down to finish this book and boy am I glad I did. I've been reading it off and on for months. It kept getting pushed aside for others. I ended up loving the book Hunted though. I definitely recommend it if you like fairytale retellings. I think this is the first one I've read of Beauty & The Beast. I enjoyed the story switching between perspectives so that you can see more of the mindset of Beast and how it changes through the story.

#LMPBC @suvata @litenthusiast @Laughterhp I finished the second book in our group. No detailed review to avoid spoilers, but I was engaged for the first part and then it seemed to slow way down. I think the targeted YA audience may have had more patience for the pacing than I did. A generous 2/5 🏹s I will have it in the mail to you Kelli early next week.

Finished my pick for #LMPBC Round 5

I have mixed feelings on it. I was really hooked in the beginning and didn‘t want to put it down and then all of a sudden I felt like the story just dragged on unnecessarily. This is a retelling of Beauty and the Beast.

I‘m not going to say anymore because I want the rest of the group to form their own opinions.

It's been so long since a book has had me so enthralled A good book doesn't just need engaging writing it needs to make you feel what the characters feel grief, hope, excitement this book achieved that effortlessly.Yes it is a slow story but watching everything unravel and piece back together again never got boring or felt slow But this is definitely one you need to take your time with to appreciate the world and characters that have been created.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This isn‘t your typical retelling of “Beauty and the Beast”. It has strong influences of Russian folklore, and emphasizes finding yourself, destiny, and magic. One of my favorite parts of the Beauty and the Beast trope is the romance, however I found that this novel had very little of it and left me wishing for more. Overall, this book was well written, but left me a bit unsatisfied.

So I‘m actually kind of burned out on YA fantasy...they‘re all starting to seem the same to me. But this retelling of Beauty and the Beast is really fantastic! I‘m actually not quite done yet, but 75% of the way in, I‘m super invested in both Yeva and the Beast and dying to see how everything will turn out! I‘m reading a library book but might need to get my own copy of this one!
