Rose and the Beast – Read It and Rate It

The Rose and the Beast: Fairy Tales Retold
by Francesca Lia Block
Fantasy
Horror
* * Stars (Just ok)

This book is a series of short stories. And they are short. It’s a good book, but some of them are disturbing. All the stories are retellings of old fairy tales, but with modern settings and some very dark themes like drugs, cutting, and rape. It’s a great book, but only some people will probably like it.
