Powered by Forever Write PR

Bookish Princess by C. Lesbirel is a contemporary Beauty and the Beast. Fans of enemies to lovers and angsty love stories will devour this new adult romance. The next installment of the Modern Princess Collection is now LIVE!

Only on Amazon + Read for FREE on Kindle Unlimited

Desperate to escape the responsibility that came with her gypsy roots, Bella buries her head in books and does everything she can to hide her true identity.  
Hunter was born to fight and win, but fighting for Bella is a losing battle from the very beginning. 

When she is forced to marry a monster, will she take a chance on love and see beneath the beast, or will she run away and turn her back on everything she knows?

If you enjoy angsty love stories and need to know what happens when love is unrequited, you’ll love this new adult, Beauty and the Beast retelling.

Review: Bookish Princess was probably the story I was most looking forward to reading. I wish I could say it lived up to its expectations for me, but it didn't. I'm not saying that its a bad story, but it didn't do justice to  "Beauty And the Beast" the tale that it is retelling.

For me Hunter wasn't a beast..and Bella/Imogen wasn't the Belle I imagine. To be perfectly honest, I hated Bella/ Imogen and her secrets. I couldn't quite wrap my head around it. It takes part of the original Beauty and the Beast and melds it with the Disney version in some aspects. Basically it goes Belle and her love of books, meets Beauty who must marry a man not of her choosing. In the modern world?

I was confused at first by Hunter. His profession made me think he was going to be the "Gaston" of the story. He was really in no way a "Beast." Mostly he was the typical romance novel "alpha male."

Then there's Addy, who is an absolute jerk. I can't imagine why Bella even went out with him, bff dating his friend or not.

I kept on, because I couldn't figure out how the love/hate thing with Bella and Hunter was going to play out. I wanted something romantic. It didn't deliver there either.

I'm not saying its a bad story, because it did have its moments, or I wouldn't have finished it. It just didn't work as well for me, especially as I have loved almost all of this series.
