Cruel Beauty by Rosamund Hodge

Went to the local library and picked this one up last week. Another retelling? ... you know I'm a sucker for these, especially Beauty and the Beast retellings. Writing? awesome. Totally awesome. But overall? I guess you could say I just wasn't that into it. Of course other factors could play into this such as, simply not in the right mind set for it, wasn't ready for it, so on and so forth. 
    I just didn't really fall in love with any of the main characters... or side characters for that matter. I wanted to, believe me I did. With writing like this? How could you not be into it? I just found myself skimming, and having absolutely no quarrels about putting this one down and only picking it up when I really wanted to. This might be one I'll find myself returning to after a while to have another go.
