Summary from Goodreads;
I am locked away... with no one to confide in but you... and him. His fur, those claws—they caught me off guard at first, but now I'm noticing something else about him—something deeper. It's the look in his eye. It tells me he's got a secret to keep. That's okay—I've got one, too. I think I'm falling in love with him.... 
3 stars; really enjoyed it but lacked a few things.
Lindy's Diary is the companion novel to Beastly, written from the perspective of the "Beauty," Lindy.

I really enjoyed this book. The fact that it was written in diary form was really intriguing. Ever since I read Beastly last year, I've been wondering what went through the mind of the beauty, Lindy and in this diary you find out. I think that if you read this, you get more in depth information about Lindy, like that she's a hopeless romantic who just wanted her hero to rescue her. The pacing dragged a bit considering how Lindy skipped days, even years before writing in the diary and the time she spent with Adrian, otherwise known as Kyle. I wished that she'd written more about how Adrian reminded her of Kyle. She only mentioned that his eyes seemed familiar once. 

I really enjoyed it though, but recommend reading Beastly because this will spoil the story for those who read this first.

  1. Which is the one about the witch who put the curse on the boy (kyle?)
    Its a book about her life.
    I have that one and that seems really good.
    I tried to read the book the movie is based on but it seemed so different to me I couldnt quite get into it.
