Book Review: Lost in a Book (Beauty and the Beast) by Jennifer Donnelly


Title: Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book
Author: Jennifer Donnelly
Published: January 31st, 2017
Reading Format: Hardcover
Rating: ☆☆☆☆☆

An original addition to the beloved Beauty and the Beast fairy tale, Lost in a Book follows the lonely, bookish Belle as she finds an enchanted book in the Beast’s library called Nevermore that carries her into a glittering new world. There, Belle is befriended by a mysterious countess who offers her the life she’s always dreamed of.

But Nevermore is not what it seems, and the more time Belle spends there, the harder it is to leave. Good stories take hold of us and never let us go, and once Belle becomes lost in this book, she may never find her way out again.

This deluxe hardcover novel expands upon the beautiful story and world seen in the new Walt Disney Studios’ film, Beauty and the Beast.

This book. Oh, my gosh. This book literally got me extremely excited for Disney’s live-action version of Beauty and the Beast. This story was interesting and just all around pure fun. I actually felt like a kid again while reading this book. That’s how good it is. Beauty and the Beast: Lost in a Book is absolutely heartwarming. We got to see all of the characters we grew up with and we also got some new characters that are just twisted. Ah, I just loved it all so much. It makes me want a second book, but I doubt that will happen. Fingers crossed, right?

The relationship between the Beast and Belle just makes me smile like an idiot because I think about the animated film every time they had a scene together. The nostalgia was real. 100%
