May 2017 Genre Discussion

Post by kio »

It's Free Choice Month! You pick what you like and tell us a bit about it:

1. What made you pick the genre you picked?
2. What book did you read? What was it about? What did you like it? Dislike?
3. What stood out about the genre you picked?

Have fun! :)

For this month, I chose a fantasy/fairy tale since I love fantasy.

I recently read (and may be re-reading as we speak ;) ) Beauty and the Beast Novelization. I absolutely loved it! It has brought back memories of the numerous times I watched the animated movie as a child. This book, adapted from the 2017 movie version, has so much more.

I loved how we get to know more about Belle's and the Beast's backstories. Also, I loved how Belle was an inventor, on top of a reader and a one-of-a-kind young woman in a small French village.

The only thing I didn't like was not learning the Beast's name.

The fact that it is my favorite fairy tale, even though it has changed quite a bit over the years. I feel Belle is a wonderful role model to girls; she has so many good qualities.
