My YA Books Central review: http://www.yabookscentral.com/yafiction/13944-the-beautiful-and-the-cursed-the-dispossessed-1

Teaser: What worked for me: I loved the premise of cursed individuals being forced to be servants of angels. This eternal sentence is given to humans who kill a holy priest in their life time. They are given the charge to protect humans in holy places.

The turmoil and pain of the gargoyle Luc resonated throughout this novel. His attraction to Ingrid and how he fights against it while his heart tells him otherwise kept my interest. This is kind of like a paranormal Romeo and Juliet story. You can't help but think it might end up bittersweet.

5. Right now reading an amazing YA told from the POV of Frankenstein and the Bride's son:


Blurb: Love can be a real monster.

Sixteen-year-old Boy’s never left home. When you’re the son of Frankenstein’s monster and the Bride, it’s tough to go out in public, unless you want to draw the attention of a torch-wielding mob. And since Boy and his family live in a secret enclave of monsters hidden under Times Square, it’s important they maintain a low profile.

Boy’s only interactions with the world are through the Internet, where he’s a hacker extraordinaire who can hide his hulking body and stitched-together face behind a layer of code. When conflict erupts at home, Boy runs away and embarks on a cross-country road trip with the granddaughters of Jekyll and Hyde, who introduce him to malls and diners, love and heartbreak. But no matter how far Boy runs, he can’t escape his demons—both literal and figurative—until he faces his family once more.

This hilarious, romantic, and wildly imaginative tale redefines what it means to be a monster—and a man


Loving this book SO MUCH!

YA Books Central review coming soon!
