Comments Hunted

  • Emily May

    “She wept because she did not know what she wanted, and because she wanted everything.”4 1/2 stars. Wow, this was unexpected. I got an arc of Hunted from edelweiss months ago. After putting it off again and again for other books, I decided to let it expire. Seriously, who even needs another Beauty & the Beast retelling? Then this book was given to me as a gift and *resigned sigh* I decided to just give it a shot. And I'm so glad I did.Cruel Beauty is still my favourite Beauty & the B [...]


  • Khanh, first of her name, mother of bunnies

    Inches from her face was a nightmarish visage, snarling fangs and red-gold eyes. She screamed, every muscle going rigid as she tried to struggle free, but claws dug into her skin on all sides, giving her no room to move. She stretched out with one arm anyway, ignoring the tearing pain of it, fingers brushing the hilt of her fletching knife.“YOU GAVE US YOUR WORD.” The voice was almost unrecognizable, the roar tangible against her face as the teeth flashed in the firelight. The claws tightene [...]


  • Hailey (HaileyinBookland)

    4.5*I really really enjoyed this! I normally like my fantasy books to have a lot of action and this one definitely lacked that but it worked really well because it read exactly like a fairy tale, which is perfect as this is a Beauty and the Beast retelling. This one stuck a bit closer to the Disney version/original fairy tale than others I have read while also taking a unique spin on it which I thought was very neat. Overall an awesome retelling! *ARC provided for review by Indigo Books & Mu [...]


  • Anne

    Tale as old as timeExcept.Yeah, this is not that Beauty and the Beast.This Beauty is a bit less sing-y and a bit moreabby. Which is a pretty nice change of pace, to be honest! Plus, this time around, it isn't the villagers who are out to kill the Beast, it's Beauty, herself. She's a hunter. A badass hunter. And because insert spoilery reasons here she's on a mission to take a chunk out of his supernatural hide. Of course, killing him means she's gotta stay on as his Guest prisoner while she lo [...]


  • Cait • A Page with a View

    Umm pretty sure Beauty & the Beast + Russian folk tales (mostly "Tsarevitch Ivan, the Firebird and the Gray Wolf") is the most genius mix I never knew I needed. Beauty is a childhood nickname for Yeva, a girl who grew up hunting with her father and wants a husband who admires her talent as an equal. She's a wonderfully complex, flawed, and capable main character and I really enjoyed reading from her POV. She's torn between duty & caring for her family and seeking the life she wants. The [...]


  • Nastassja

    Another anticipated release. Another unpopular opinion! Beware the spoilers!Lo and behold, Fifty Shades of Beast! Note: My reference of 50 shades of Beast is not about this book having an explicit content. There's no sex, it's a YA story in its usual 'they kissed and the screen went blank'. My reference is about how disturbing and unrealistic I find what characters have between them, and there's nothing romantic I can see about it. A very strong case of Stockholm Syndrome (worse than in the orig [...]


  • Brittney ~ Reverie and Ink

    *Full Review UpdateGuys I'm so sad. I didn't love it. Don't get me wrong, I totally see why others did, and I'm in the minority for this one.I'm not going to type a summary on this one because well, it's a Beauty and the Beast retelling. Some parts were close to the original, and other parts deviated quite a bit. In my opinion, it was the wrong parts. Here's the thing I'm super biased. I grew up with Beauty and the Beast and I just hold it in such a high regard so it's hard for me to love retell [...]


  • Reynita Maharani ★ The Night Reader ★

    REVIEW TO COME TODAY.Me : *sighs* Person : are you okay?Me : yeah, I'm just disappointed. Me : *facepalm*And as Yeva scanned the walls, each one lined with shelves and each one full of leather-bound books, at least a hundred books, more than sheknew existed in one place, she felt her heart might simply burst. I truly don't know why I didn't really like this book. Maybe it's because I was in reading slump while reading it ? or maybe it was just the book that wasn't really interesting ? the reason [...]


  • Cait (Paper Fury)

    I'm pretty sure I've read cereal packets that were more compelling. But this could be because you can eat cereal and it is delicious, but when you finish a disappointing bookke what is left??? I may use this one as a hat. But that aside, pretty much everyone loves this book so I'm that gnarly olive pip of a minority on this one. But it was so freaking sloooow I don't have the attention span for slowness, my friend. Get me out of here.+ So I mean there was still plenty to like.(I can't even say " [...]


  • LolaReviewer

    A wolf and a man. A woman and a dragon. Hunter and hunted. Nothing in this world has only one nature.This is a slightly obscure, yet wonderfully so, retelling of ‘‘Beauty and the Beast,’’ my preferred fairytale of all existing ones.Yeva is a huntress. She loves it. She loves the feel of finding prey and hunting it. She is her father’s daughter. But her sisters do not understand her love of hunting, and when it’s time to choose a husband, who will accept her as she is? Who will share [...]

    “She moves like beauty, she whispers to us of wind and forest—and she tells us stories, such stories that we wake in the night, dreaming dreams of a life long past. she reminds us of what we used to be.She reminds us of what we could be.”dark; addictive; uniquethis is hands down my favorite beauty and the beast retelling so far. It manages to stick to the original story while having an extremely unique and beautiful twist to it by adding in Russian fairy tale and folklore into the main plo [...]


  • Bentley ★ Bookbastion.net

    See this review and on my blog: bookbastionThis was STUNNING.^ Actual gif of me reading most of this book. Okay, not really, but it about sums up my feelings. Retellings are a difficult thing to go into because you never know how they're going to turn out: how you're going to feel if the story is too similar so it feels boring to read; or if it diverges too greatly from the source material that you feel it's done the original an injustice. Neither was the case for me here. Hunted sets itself apa [...]


  • sana°¤°

    This was a BR with:the potato DJ Khaled Solohoe (I'm exposing you traitor)OH WHY YES, A BUDDY READ THAT ACTUALLY WORKED OUT WITH A BOOK I ACTUALLY REALLY ENJOYED AND WILL PROBABLY BE REREADING THIS SUMMER BECAUSE THAT ENDING IS SO BEAUTIFUL, I NEED MORE OF IT. OH LOOK, I ALREADY FEEL LIKE REREADING THIS GEM OF A BOOK. I'M SUCH GARBAGE FOR THE BEAST. This book is so beautiful and magical and I can't get over it. This book takes its time in explaining the world building and the ABSOLUTELY HEART WR [...]

    BUDDY READ WITH THE CUTIE <3---3.75 starsIt's been over 6 hours since I finished reading it and while I really enjoyed it, I'm still a little confusedAnd, frustrated in the sense that this story is such a PARADOX! On one hand, it took forever for the story to pick up but once it did, I suddenly found myself reading the last chapter wanting more Hunted is my third? re-telling of Beauty and the Beast and I think Meagan Spooner did wonderfully by not only including elements from the original kee [...]


  • Trina (Between Chapters)

    This story had a strong fairy tale vibe with its fantasy world, fantastical creatures, and curses but it did not stick too close to the original Beauty and the Beast tale. Yes, you could easily tell who some of the characters were and assume some information about them, but it really made the world and characters their own. I think it would be great for those who LOVE fairy tales, but want a story that is still its own thing.Personally, my favorite aspect of this was that the Beast was an actual [...]


  • brekkersbutt

    the entire concept of beauty and the beast is so wild to me like. homegirl straightup loved an animal romantically. an animal. that’s so wild like have you ever had a pet? in other words, i enjoyed the hell out of this much more than i expected. definitely gave me everything A Court of Trash and Roses couldn't.


  • Laura

    I really enjoyed the wayMeagan Spooner blended Russian folklore elements into this retelling of Beauty & the Beast. The pacing does fall a bit on the slow side resulting in some plot dragging moments. However, if you enjoy retellings of fairytales, you might find this one interesting.There may have been more, but the Russian fairytales Tsarevitch Ivan, the Firebird and the Gray Wolf, The Firebird and Princess Vasilisa, and Vasilisa the Beautiful are all mentioned or incorporated into the sto [...]


  • maymay ☕

    Spontaneous buddy read with my fav, Maraaammmm“To the girlwho reads by flashlightwho sees dragons in the cloudswho feels most alive in worlds that never werewho knows magic is realwho dreamsThis is for you”Hunted is a beautiful retelling of the famous Beauty and the Beast but offers different twists to the original story. One of those twists were that we got a point of view from the Beast himself. So like, this book was GREAT but it always was MEH and that’s why I’m soCONFLICTEDbecause y [...]


  • Aly's Bookish Wonderland

    The snow is a canvas, her father would say, upon which the beast paints his past, his home, his intentions, his future. Learn to see the picture and you will know him as you know yourself.This is the Beauty & the Beast retelling everyone has been waiting for. I tried dozens of Beauty & the Beast retellings. Okay, maybe not dozens, but enough to know it's one of those fairytales (like Alice in Wonderland which, by the way, I still haven't found a good enough retelling of) that is hard to [...]


  • Natalie Monroe

    3.5 stars"She knew now why she was here. She would see the monster dead."Hunted is a hard one to review. I love, love, love the concept of a vengeful huntress Beauty and a cat-and-mouse game with the Beast, and the book itself delivers. Yet we didn't click the way I did with other Beauty & the Beast retellings like A Court of Thorns and Roses and Uprooted.The romance is a soothing slow burn. Those who enjoy it in small doses should read this immediately. It takes ages for Yeva (Beauty) to fa [...]

    Warning: Minor Spoilers AheadThere's no such thing as living happily ever after—there's only living. We make the choice to do it happily. —Meagan SpoonerThis was my third buddy read with my admirable friend, Bentley (Book Bastion). I'm still not over the live action film of Beauty and the Beast, so this book was a pleasure to read.Essentially, Hunted is a super Feminist retelling of BatB. Set in the rich and mythical world of Russia, this book is also reminiscent of Katherine Arden's The Bea [...]

    ***Review posted on The Eater of Books! blog***Hunted by Meagan SpoonerPublisher: HarperTeenPublication Date: March 14, 2017Rating: 4 starsSource: eARC from EdelweissSummary (from ):Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood.

  • Ashwood, 불

    This was an awesome book! I really wasn't sure what to expect with this one, because some beauty and the beast retellings can be really uninteresting and poorly written but this was a surprisingly fantastic read! There were a few parts that could've been left out and I wouldn't have minded but overall it was pretty awesome. I love when the female MC is fearless and kickass with a great sense of humor. The relationship beauty had with her sisters was one of my favorite parts, for real.


  • Caitlin

    Well. That was weird? I've been sitting here for 10 minutes contemplating what the fuck this book was. I don't really understand what even happened and I'm confused as to how I feel about this book so let me just give you some quick thoughts- I didn't like the Beast. Sorry but he reminded me of Tamlin the entire time. I felt like this Beast had no likeable qualities and was just a big ball of a shit. I would have preferred if he died. Oops? - I didn't ship it at all. Not once. Not ever. - I like [...]


  • Sarah

    (I received an advance copy of this book for free. Thanks to HarperCollins and Edelweiss.)"This is a dream," she whispered. "Magic. A fairy tale."This was a YA retelling of Beauty and the Beast.I liked Yeva, and I liked how strong she was in difficult situations. She went after her father when he was in trouble, and she didn't give up on the Beast either, even when everybody else had. She was quite stubborn though, she didn't always take the easy option, and was opinionated as to what she wanted [...]


  • Riley

    this is nothing new or original and I'm just over it


  • Ariana

    I loved itLoved the heroine. Loved the chapters narrated by the beast (so similar in style withe the previous series I read from MS). Loved the mix between the stories. I am not into the original story (sorry guys), but this version worked so well for me. Maybe because of the writing srtyle, maybe because of all the above, maybe just because I can connect so well with all that "wanting", I always look for more and I know how that void must feel like Anyways, a great story from a greater author. [...]


  • AMEERA

    200 page enough for me


  • Fables&Wren

    WrensReads Review:Have you ever seen this movie?Then you basically know this story and I don't need to paraphrase it for you. I was kind of bored. And the whole Stockholm Syndrome thing everyone always talks about with Beauty and the Beast really stood out to me for some reason. She didn't fit in with her family anymore, so she went back to her capture which, yah basically happens in the movie too so I am not sure why it stands out to me now. Like Beauty and the Beast is my favorite Disney Princ [...]

    “She moves like beauty, she whispers to us of wind and forest—and she tells us stories, such stories that we wake in the night, dreaming dreams of a life long past. she reminds us of what we used to be. She reminds us of what we could be.” This was honestly such a surprising read! I really did not expect to like it as much as I did and I’m kind of astonished I did. This book isn’t the best but there’s just something about it makes it so compelling, so much that I couldn’t let go. [...]
