One thought on “Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book

  1. To see this review and others please visit readrantrockandrollThis review may contain spoilersBeauty and the Beast Lost in a Book is comparable to the classic Beauty and the Beast, yet so much I thoroughly enjoyed the introduction which was so unique It pulled me right in with the interaction between Love and Death so intriguing It s no surprise that Death would cheat, but who will win The story starts with Belle in Beast s castle after she s been imprisoned Beloved Belle and her love for books [...]




  2. I really wanted to love this book but I just couldn t It was enjoyable at times though The book starts off when the Beast shows Belle the library Love and Death have been watching the Beast and Belle and made a wager with each other Death, of course, tries to cheat and almost succeeds Never, the enchanted book is appealing to Belle so much so that she is willing to stay within its pages forever When Belle finally realizes the truth about the book, it seems like she might get lost in it forever I [...]


  3. 4.5 Stars Oh goodness This book was so good Everything from the plot, to seeing Belle, the Beast, and the gang back in action and fleshed out than their animated movie counterparts This is pretty much a tie in for the upcoming live action movie that can placed when the Beast show and give Belle the library So it takes place a little after their initial meeting,her going to the west wing thus leaving and him saving her from the wolves Just think of Belle s Enchanted Christmas which was a tie in [...]


  4. assolutamente meraviglioso Datemi altre storie originali ambientate nel castello, vi prego E fatemi abbracciare la Bestia.


  5. Oh Oh my gosh Astonishing This has got to be the best retelling I have EVER read I am in tears.This book was phenomenal All retellings I have ever read tend to plat close to the chest and not change very much or change it all together so the original gets lost But Beauty and the Beast Lost in a Book totally changed AND challenged them all It s a one of a kind I will say this, I pre ordered it the SECOND I knew about it Being a fanatic of Beauty and the Beast there is no possible way I could pass [...]


  6. Mirrors only show us what we are Books show us what we can be Fun Fun Fun Glorious, imaginative fun This enchanted tale a story within THE story was indeed a delight Belle became Lost in a Book , as did I And oh what a mesmorizing journey, with Belle and Beast, and the usual Disney cast Chip, Mrs Potts, Lumiere, Cogsworth and some new characters too, like the spellbinding sisters Love and Death Sometimes words alone were not enough, because they spoke only to the head But a story, one in whic [...]


  7. Lost in a Book es un libro mucho m s oscuro de lo que me esperaba para una historia infantil Todo empieza con el Amor y la Muerte, dos hermanas, apostando sobre el futuro de la Bella y la Bestia el Amor insiste en que todo saldr bien y la Bella se enamorar a tiempo de la Bestia pero la Muerte dice que ella siempre gana al final y que nada suceder antes de que caiga el ltimo p talo de la rosa As pues, las hermanas sellan la apuesta y lo primero que hace la Muerte tras ver al Amor partir es hacer [...]


  8. So I m doing the reading challenge this year and this book is perfect for the category a story within a story I absolutely love everything Disney So how could I resist a new Disney Beauty and the Beast inspired book This is has been one that I have wanted to read for a while now So I am extremely happy to finally have it in my hands and to have read it I am also pleased to say that it is a really good book Unlike the other Disney books where the characters name are not used Which is highly annoy [...]


  9. I have to start with nostalgia.My first princess was, admittedly, Aurora She was followed by Cinderella and Snow White In the 1980s, there were only those three until Ariel graced the screens in 1989 Finally, Belle arrived in a swirl of yellow skirts in 1991.Belle was me Brown hair, green eyes She loved books She fell in love with Beast for who he was Maybe the library helped.And here we learn a little about the library, and a lot about Belle.Love and Death are playing a chess game view spoile [...]


  10. When I finished this book and got on here to rate it, I honestly wasn t expecting to see all of these glowing reviews I was surprised at how many people seemed to sincerely like this book Maybe I m just being overly critical, with the movie being released soon and all but I can t say that I enjoyed this book To me at least, Belle was a pretty flat character, and I couldn t relate to her at all I didn t feel any suspense during the parts that were supposed to be exciting, and I didn t feel touche [...]



  11. I absolutely loved this book I thought the story fit very well into the movie s timeline It also did a nice job of briefly going over some of the things that happened in the movie in case you haven t seen it yet I loved the whole idea of Belle getting lost in an enchanted book I loved all the things Belle s said about how she felt about reading Overall, this book was just so perfect Also, the cover is just so gorgeous.


  12. Isn t that what a good story does It pulls you in and never lets you go DAMMIT, I WANTED THIS STORY TO PULL ME IN AND NEVER LET ME GO.Lost in a Book replicates its Disney counterpart where Belle is a captive of the Beast in his castle that still includes Cogsworth, Lumiere, Mrs Potts, Chip, and Beast reveals his library to Belle and she is awed, but instead of the bright shiny room of perfection we all have embedded in our minds Belle immediately realizes how much the library has fallen into di [...]


  13. This was so cute I really enjoyed this book So similar to the original story and yet so different Really original.


  14. 4.5 rating Isn t that what a good story does It pulls you in and never lets you go This was so lovely I m a huge fan of Jennifer Donnelly and I m shocked I didn t pick this up sooner As with many people, Beauty and the Beast holds such a special place in my heart and Donnelly did a fantastic job writing this and creating an original story within the timeline of the classic It really is a tale as old as time and these characters I will cherish and love forever Cogsworth and Lumiere will always re [...]


  15. Reading became my sanctuary, Belle continued I found so much in those books I found histories that inspired me Poems that delighted me Novels that challenged me Belle paused, suddenly self conscious She looked down at her hands, and in a wistful voice, said, What I really found, though, was myself This book was enchanting It pulled me in and made me invested in the story.This would have been 4 stars if it weren t for one thing I thought that the first 250 pages were kind of slow and boring Don t [...]



  16. I really wanted to love this than I did And it wasn t a bad book, I just didn t particularly care for it Lost in a Book is sort of a side story in the Beauty and the Beast story like from the 2017 movie specifically kind of in an AU In this book, two sisters, Love and Death, have a wager on whether or not Belle will love the Beast and break the curse and Death decides that she isn t going to play fair, so she tries to lure Belle away by getting trapped in a book The I listened, the I realised [...]


  17. I have mentioned multiple times that I absolutely adore Beauty and the Beast It is my favorite Disney movie A beautiful dance scene, a strong female lead who loves to read, and quirky characters were everything I could ask for and much For the past several months, I have been eagerly awaiting the release of the upcoming Beauty and the Beast live action movie In anticipation of the upcoming movie, Disney has released an original story that involves all our favorite Disney characters Lost in a Bo [...]


  18. I m a huge Disney fan and Belle and the Beast is one of my favorites I ve recently been to the movie and I think Emma Watson was great for the role The story is magical and I love the fact that there is book love in the book as well as in the movie.This story actually revolves around the fairy tale but takes a side road, when Belle finds a book called NeverA longer review can be found at Bite Into booksIf you love Disney, fairytales and retellings this is a book for you It reads pretty quickly a [...]


  19. This was a cute little story about things that happened while Belle was still a prisoner in the Beast s castle She finds a book that allows her to enter the story herself and live it out like it was really happening Little does she know that she s now tied up in the games of others and the outcome may not be totally in her control Overall, I liked the book Like I said, it was cute and fun and it was nice to see all these characters out of their normal story I wasn t a huge fan of the way Belle w [...]



  20. I have a real love of Belle, she was always one of my favourite Disney Princesses, especially because of her love of books I think this novel portrayed her well, she s strong and interesting and this was a fun story to read.


  21. This book is nice but I found Belle character totally out of character She s always been my favourite Disney princess but in this book I can t stand her, she was so annoying and stupid The Belle we all know is totally intelligent and wiser than Belle of this book She would got that the Countess was Death in half a second


  22. There were things that I found to be problematic with this book One of the characters, Love is a woman of color which is amazing and I loved seeing that in a middle grade retelling What I didn t like and what I had issues with, is how Love is described by her sister, Death Death describes Love as a ferocious, sweet faced little savage pg 9 Love is also described as a madwoman and deranged pg 84 I really loved Love as a character, and she followed one of the main themes that nothing is as it seem [...]


  23. 3.5 stars Belle, it s a wonderful thing to read about other people s lives, but it s important to live your own life, too no matter how challenging that life may sometimes be This was a beauty and the beast retelling with other element from other stories too like Alice in wonderland and Cinderella the story begin when the beast gives belle the library as a gift , being a book lover belle spent a lot of time there she discovers an enchanted book that opens a portal into the Never world which tran [...]



  24. 2.5 3 SterneVorneweg Ich liebe die Sch ne und das Biest und war deswegen richtig gespannt auf diese Geschichte.Meine Meinung Obwohl ich keine sonderlich hohen Erwartungen an dieses Buch hatte, wurde ich entt uscht Versteht mich nicht falsch, die Geschichte ist s , aber auch nicht mehr Ich konnte nicht einmal einen richtigen Bezug zu Belle oder dem Biest aufbauen, obwohl ich diese Charaktere wirklich liebe Insbesondere Belle hat mir gar nicht gefallen, denn sie war viel zu naiv Die Handlung geht [...]
