Beast/Beast by Tessa Gratton

Gratton's Retelling of Beauty and the Beast is heartbreakingly beautiful.  The story is told from Beauty's POV and it's her slowly falling in love with the Beast. Grattons writing style is so perfect for this, that I am definitely going to read her novels. The pacing is done to perfection. Which is what makes this so good. I gulped down this story, was captivated and deeply touched. Since I don't believe in the One or love at first sight- this story rings so much more true than many other. 

Well, what can I say- I am smitten. My favorite story in the book so far. By the way beauty and the beast is one of my least favorite fairytales-- so this is a double achievement in my opinion.
