Rating 4.93 out of 5 stars
This is so far the best book I've read all year. I had to mark it down on originality only because it is a retelling and not a full original idea. I didn't want this book to end. I was sad when it did, and happy when I realized there where more to come. It's an amazing twist on the beauty and the beast story that I have to tell everyone about. I can see this probably being an annual reread.
My rating system:
initial feeling= 5

originality= 4.5
unpredictability= 5
ending= 5
interest= 5 ( )

diverse teen fantasy fiction (beauty and the beast in an alternate universe, heroine has cerebral palsy)

I kind of want to give this seven stars; did not expect to like this quite so much, but Harper kicks so much butt here! She's brave, totally badass, and also incidentally has cerebral palsy (symptoms are different for each person, but Harper is able to be a total superhero in her own way). Everyone always underestimates her because of her small stature.

Looking forward to the next one.

Blog Review: https://trishadoeseverythingbutstudy2.wordpress.com/2021/01/01/my-december-in-bo...

The first thing I'd like to say is that it was around *checks status updates* 36% into this book when I realised that the name of the book is not A Curse so Dark and Lovely but actually A Curse so Dark and Lonely. I felt so stupid, and I still feel a little stupid.

Now, on to the book itself. I love The Beauty and The Beast. I always have, and I think I always will. I have enjoyed most retellings of this fairytale, and this was not an exception! I loved this one, even more so for the new directions it took from other retellings.

The thing I liked best about this was maybe that our main character had cerebral palsy. I personally don't have a lot of GK about CP, and I'm glad this book opened my eyes to this medical condition which affects so many people, especially children around the world. I don't think I've ever read a book before with a character with CP. I always like reading and learning more about different medical conditions, and this one didn't disappoint.

I also liked the pretending to be a princess part of this, and the enemies-to-loves relationship, because I love that! I usually don't love the groundhog day concept, but since it was only in the background in this, and not part of the plot as such, I could ignore that part.

The ending.....what do I even say I did guess that Grey was the halfling, but it was like a nowhere-near-possible-passing-guess, and so I was shocked when I was right. I can't wait to find out more about Grey, and I really hope we'll get to see more of Rhen and Harper too.

Apart from all of that, there isn't really anything particular that stands out about this book. I loved it, and will definitely continuing with this series! I recommend it to anyone who likes CP representation (and would like to know a bit about it), Beauty and the Beast retellings, strong badass female characters who turn into hellcats when provoked, the pretending-to-be-royalty trope, and the enemies-to-lovers trope.

Of course Grey is the king's bastard. Duh.

I gave it a 3 because I've hated love triangles since I watched the first season of Vampire Diaries.
I would've lower if it's not fast paced and I would've rated higher if there's no obvious love triangle going on.

Also, I like Zo. Maybe she'll have more parts on the next book.

This book was an interesting take on beauty and the beast. I enjoyed all the characters and they were interesting without being token characters for anything. Can’t wait to read the rest of the series and more by this author. ( )
