Mini Review: Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

I have been so lucky lately and have had quite a few books mailed to me.  It's great because I have been trying not to request ARCs so these are surprise books, which is even better.  I just am not finding the time to read some of them, so I brought them to my school and handed them out to a few of my most avid readers with the exception that they write me a mini review when they are finished.

One of my favorite sixth grade readers, Alena, chose Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge.  Here's what she thought:

A charming and exciting twist on Beauty and the Beast as well as love and destiny.  I couldn't put it down.  Each page had me under a captivating spell.  Readers of Throne of Glass will love this book!  I can't wait to read more from Rosamund Hodge.

If that doesn't make you want to read it, I am not sure what will!


  1. Love how you share the books you get too, I usually give any I happen to get to the middle school or public library. After reading them first :)

    1. It's been interesting because they weren't as excited to see the ARCs as I had thought they would be. Maybe it's because their covers aren't as shiny as library covers! Or maybe its because I told them they have to write a mini review for me--too much work!

    2. Definitely neither. I was try not to act like a little kid in a candy store! I tried to play it cool and as sophisticated as I could!
