I really enjoyed this one. Considering the first one I liked but didn't love. The second one I only kinda liked. I didn't have high hopes for this one. But it ended up being amazing. I loved the Beauty and the Beast basis. The romance was lovely, a great enemies to lovers. And seeing how the couples from the first two books turned out was a great bonus. ( )

This review is also featured on Behind the Pages: Bookish and the Beast

Bookish and the Beast is a geeky retelling of Beauty and the Beast. I picked this up to take a break from the heavier themed books I’ve been reading. This is a light-hearted, easy-to-read young adult novel. And the geekiness Once Upon a Con is known for, shines just as bright in this latest installment.

Rosie’s life inexplicably changed when her mother passed away. College looms over her head as high school days are swiftly coming to an end, but she doesn’t know what to do. She feels lost, drifting through each day. Until an accident leaves her face to face with Vance Reigns, the actor for General Sond in the newest Starfield movie. And while it might have once been her dream to meet him, the reality is he is a jerk.

Once Upon a Con does such a wonderful job portraying how fandom brings people together and helps them through life’s hardest times. Rosie loves Starfield and the memories it brings of her mother. And true to style, it also shows the flip side of the fandom. This time readers will witness how the tabloids can bring an actor down. Vance deals with the pressures of gossip and poor choices made public.

I wouldn’t say this is the best retelling, but Vance’s behavior towards Rosie can certainly be described as beastly. Some may say he was too harsh, but Vance is in a difficult spot and angry at the world. I thought his part to play as the beast was great. However, I did expect more of a gradual decline in his behavior as the two began to know one another. It seemed rather abrupt when he went from the beast to realizing his mistakes and trying to be better.

I was not entirely comfortable with the portrayal of Gaston. Garret constantly pursues Rosie about homecoming despite her telling him no multiple times. While she stood her ground, there were moments where she felt she had to go with him. Why? If she doesn’t want to go, and she has made it clear to the boy and her friends it is a no, why internalize saying yes? It was a mixed message that left me unsettled.

I have enjoyed the Once Upon a Con series, despite some of its downfalls. And I hope Ashley Poston will release a new one to continue the series.

Rosie knows all about Starfield - her late mother collected all the books. Rosie meets a mysterious stranger at the Con and discovers that the lovely person she half fell in love with turns out to be spoiled actor Vance. Vance is a jerk - but partly because that is what is expected of his persona. Despite herself, Rosie finds there is more to Vance than meets the eye. ( )

I didn't really like the first book in this series and I didn't even read the second book, but this one sounded really cute so I gave it a try. It was ok. I think the premise is a little over done and the author skipped over a lot of their time together which would have been nice to read them actually falling for each other. Why the night they first met wasn't included just baffles me. The reminisced parts of the night but it just wasn't enough in my opinion. There was also a lot of repetitive information. I did like how Rosie was very brave and was able to protect herself. Vance just wasn't very appealing at all. No real swoon worthy scenes. Overall not highly recommend. If you love the famous person falling for an ordinary person trope I HIGHLY recommend Kelly Oram books. She does them much better with more character development and heart than this series.
I did receive this book for free from Amazon Vine. ( )

I really enjoy the Once Upon a Con series, and this installment was no exception. I love the nods to all things geeky, I love the quotes from movies, I love the fairy tale retellings. This one, though, was even better than I had expected.

I guess I just really appreciate a good redemption story. I love the stories where a character can find internal strength she didn't know she had. I love stories with a really good doggo. But more than that, these characters felt more real to me than the previous two books in the series. Those were enjoyable and I liked the characters well enough. But these characters—not just Rosie and Vance, but also Quinn and Annie and Space Dad and Elias—it seems like I know them. ( )
