Beauty and the Beast, Petals and Thorns?

Okay, how many of you have read Beauty and the Beast? I bet almost all of us have read it either to our kids, nieces or nephews or for yourself when you were young. Remember Belle, Beast, Mrs Pott, teacup, clock and candelabra. It is a very nice story for kids but there is another version of Beauty and the Beast. This time it is for adults.

Petals and Thorns is a book written by Jennifer Paris a pen name for author Jeffe Kennedy. This book is not my normal type of book that I read but I became interested to read it after Tawna Fenske blogged about it.   

Since this book is available online, with a few clicks I managed to download it to my iPhone. Yes, it is in the ebook format. You can download it to your eReader or ipad or iphone. Not that difficult eh to buy this book or any ebooks!

Well the story was fun to read and I finished reading it within one afternoon. It is still about a beautiful woman and a beast and how the beast finally won Amarantha's heart. How he won it, you have to find out yourself. The only difference between this version and the kid's version is that instead of having Mrs Potts and clock, they were replaced with invisible character. Imagine in the middle of the night, you see a floating candle moving towards you. Don't you feel scared?

Oh! I'm not going tell you more about this book, as I'm not a book reviewer but I think this book is a fun book to read and if you are looking something new to read willing to try a new genre, you may want to try this book. If you do, you can go to here to purchase it.

Even though I'm not a book reviewer, I have rated this book 5 out of 5 in or equivalent to A.

So why wait? Go and try this. You may like it.
