Good morning and happy Monday! Today I’m popping on briefly to mention an upcoming release from Berkley Publishing Group perfect for fans of Beauty and the Beast!
I don’t normally do spotlights for books anymore but I’ve seen this one floating around for a while and it intrigued me since its announcement. Plus I’m a sucker for re-tellings, especially ones that examine a tale from a different side.
Typically I see re-tellings of Beauty and the Beast where the main focus is on the “Beauty” but this time, the “Beast” gets to tell his side of the story!

About the Book
by Leife Shallcross
Published on February 12, 2019 by Berkley Books
Genres: Adult, Fantasy
A sumptuously magical, brand new take on a tale as old as time—read the Beast's side of the story at long last.
I am neither monster nor man—yet I am both.
I am the Beast.
The day I was cursed to this wretched existence was the day I was saved—although it did not feel so at the time.
My redemption sprung from contemptible roots; I am not proud of what I did the day her father happened upon my crumbling, isolated chateau. But if loneliness breeds desperation then I was desperate indeed, and I did what I felt I must. My shameful behaviour was unjustly rewarded.
My Isabeau. She opened my eyes, my mind and my heart; she taught me how to be human again.
And now I might lose her forever.
Lose yourself in this gorgeously rich and magical retelling of The Beauty and the Beast that finally lays bare the beast's heart.
