Today dawns snow and ice on the ground and the beginning of changes here on my blog. I mentioned in my January stats post that I wanted to do more than just book reviews this year. I wanted to do promo posts for books I love, author interviews, guest bloggers. This is all a slow learning process for me but I hope it goes well. If you have advice as more experienced bloggers I would be happy to hear it!
Today’s Promo Post is for an upcoming release called The Beast’s Heart by Leife Shellcross. This was one of my favorite reads for the beginning of 2019, and I love how it reads, the characters, the world, all of it. I’ve a review coming up soon, but felt that it was only appropriate to do a promo post first.
A luxuriously magical retelling of Beauty and the Beast set in seventeenth-century France–and told from the point of view of the Beast himself.
I am neither monster nor man—yet I am both.
I am the Beast.
He is a broken, wild thing, his heart’s nature exposed by his beastly form. Long ago cursed with a wretched existence, the Beast prowls the dusty hallways of his ruined château with only magical, unseen servants to keep him company—until a weary traveler disturbs his isolation.
Bewitched by the man’s dreams of his beautiful daughter, the Beast devises a plan to lure her to the château. There, Isabeau courageously exchanges her father’s life for her own and agrees to remain with the Beast for a year. But even as their time together weaves its own spell, the Beast finds winning Isabeau’s love is only the first impossible step in breaking free from the curse . . .

Having already read this, I can say that this is well worth buying on Amazon, and that it’s less than $10 in paperback format. Here’s the link to that, if you’re interested:
Now, please let me know if the links don’t work because I’m still figuring out how to do all of that, despite being on my blog for nearly three years. I also hope you all go and check out this beautiful work, because it’s well worth it.
Until next time,
