Blog Tour - Becoming Beauty




Welcome to Becoming Beauty's Blog Tour! Learn all about Sarah E. Boucher and her exciting new Young Adult novel based on the classic fairy tale Beauty & The Beast.

Becoming Beauty


Self-centered Bella focuses her attention on beautiful dresses and fabulous balls rather than helping her family earn a living.  And her siblings have had enough! To pay off their father’s debt, they send Bella to a far-off manor where the owner is more like a beast than a man.

As their personalities clash, Bella comes to realize there’s more to the Beast than she could ever have dreamed—if only she can look beneath the surface. And then there’s Jack, the kind servant who helps Bella adjust to her new life, someone Bella could easily fall in love with. But pursuing love may cost Bella her dreams of wealth and beauty. And that’s a price she’s not willing to pay.



Becoming Beauty is available on Amazon, Barnes & 
Noble, and books & things.

My Review: The beginning of this book reminded me a bit of the Disney version of Beauty and the Beast. There are a few differences, Bella has 2 siblings, she isn't an only child. And she's utterly selfish, unlike Belle in the movie. I like the way that Bella is thrust into life at the Beast's; her siblings, fed up with her selfishness, pack her up and send her in their sick father's place. I like that Bella is given a chance to grow out of her selfishness and later even given a chance to prove that she has. Bella is a great character, one who was forced to grow to become more than she ever would have intended for herself. I thought that both the Beast and Jack were well written characters too. I like the way that we see them at the beginning through Bella's eyes, but later we're able to determine just why they are the way they are. I liked the plot too, and the ending was satisfying. I liked that there was a touch of romance in this book too, but it's perfectly clean so I didn't have to worry about our daughter reading it too. If you love fairy-tale re-tellings you won't want to miss this great book!

I was sent an e-copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
