Beastly by Alex Flinn [Giveaway] [Monster Birthday Party]

I inspected BEASTLY last year, and found that there were several differing opinions in the blogosphere around the time I read it. I, personally, loved the story, and loved the book. A lot of my fellow bloggers found shortcomings with the storyline, and I respect their opinions, but I thought I'd do a giveaway of a new paperback copy so that you guys could have the chance to figure out for yourselves whether or not you like it before the movie comes out in July. Yeah, that's right, the movie. In fact, here's a featurette of the movie just below, that seems to be pretty close to the jist of the book, or at least my recollection thereof. You can also read an excerpt on Alex Flinn's website.



So, if you want to win a copy of this book, enter your info below.  I usually try to read the book before I see the movie, so if you haven't read it, here's your chance!  Don't forget to share it with your friends on Facebook and Twitter and tell them to tell us you sent them... you'll get referral points for it if they tell us you sent them! Be sure to check out our other giveaways we've been having this month... you're not gonna wanna miss them!

I've heard some mixed reviews of this too, but I think it sounds great! I love fairytale retellings!

I had no idea it was being made into a movie, thanks for sharing the trailer. :)

Haven't read the book so can't really give an opinion, but for some reason I am not looking forward to the movie... mmmm.... I think the way they crafted the beast face is so surreal, movie watchers can't connect with the beast... the beast wasn't ugly. He was weird.

Wow! The trailer looks Ah-ma-zing!! And in my opinion, the Stormbreaker guy did grow up *extremely* well. LOL! I'm so going to enter this and cannot wait for the movie too.

I've been seeing and reading a lot about the movie lately, and like you, I like to read the book before watching the movie.

WOW!
This looks incredible!

I loved this book! Thank you for inserting the trailer - I was skeptical about it (books are always better than their movie counterpart) but that featurette changed my mind! Now I'm looking forward to see my fave characters become alive on screen! Will gagging was hilarious! :D
