    You had me at fans of Libba Bray's Gemma Doyle trilogy. BUT IF SOMEONE TURNS INTO A TREE, SO HELP ME GOD.

    I. Can’t. Read. It. A-ny-more.It’s mainly because of the writing. I rarely say this, but I can’t stand it. It makes my head hurt. Weird metaphors and figures of speech everywhere. It’s overwhelming. It’s annoying. And I just don’t like the way she structures her sentences. I keep wanting to re-structure them in my head. Something about her choice of words and the way she combines, associates them is off. I’ve had enough. DNF at 40%.

    Without a doubt, this is one of the most creative spins in YA paranormal that I've read lately. But then again, I've been smacked in the face with a glut of angels, fairies, vampires, and werewolves, so anything well-written outside of those oh-so-familiar territory is bound to be a Big Effing Deal.So this was what a nightmare looked like by the light of day.The setting is also one not typically seen in YA; turn-of-the-century (1899) Paris. Our main heroine, the 17-year old Ingrid, her 15-year o [...]

    You had me at gargoyles.___________________________________________________Actual Rating:  1/2Gargoyles!  That's the only word I needed to see in the summary to know that I had to read this book.  And then, I immediately started picturing this:What?  You didn't?  :P  In all seriousness, I'm usually a little squeamish about inter, um, species (?) relationships in booksI mean, how would that even work?  Especially since the gargoyle in his true form lacks any reproductive organs.  ;0)Now [...]

    Set in beautiful Paris, 1899, The Beautiful and the Cursed is a unique, violent, sometimes disturbing YA Gothic involving demons, Gargoyles, and… something unexplained that is one of our main characters. With the appearance of two dead bodied within the first 70 pages, I knew I was in for a good time. Though not a bad thing (for me), this book was a little more violent than I expected. Aside from the initial dead bodies we're treated to gory bodily remains and beastly attacks--which were prett [...]

    I’m not one who usually reads historical fiction, but this one appealed to me. Mystery, horror, with a gothic feel, set in Paris! I couldn’t resist and I’m glad I gave this story a chance! Seventeen year old Ingrid is flung into a world where mythical creatures are anything but myth, when her mother, sister and she move to Paris from London. Her mother plans on renovating an old abbey into a gallery to exhibit her art, and during the renovations Ingrid, her sister Gabriella and Grayson are [...]

    So excited that there seem to be so many YA gothics coming out recently! Well, "so many" meaninga few.

    4 Stars A spiraling, dark historical paranormal, that has just about everything you could possibly crave in a Young Adult book. THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CURSED was absolutely stunning and immensely addicting, I loved it for so many reasons!!Wow, WOW, WOOWWW!!! That's how THE BEAUTIFUL AND THE CURSED left me feeling!! It had everything, I mean EVERYTHING!!! From it's historical background, and Paris setting, with a touch of fantasy, to it's terrifying supernatural creatures, and fierce powers, to it [...]

    POR QUE LAS EDITORIALES EN ESPAÑOL SIEMPRE HACEN LO MISMO! ??????Me encanta la portada original, el titulo también y vienen estos y hacen una portada como esta:Que NO ME GUSTA, NO ME GUSTA PARA NADA. Y como soy SUPER quisquillosa en cuanto al titulo y portada de los libros este va a ser otro que voy a tener que comprarme en ingles porque me niego ROTUNDAMENTE a comprarmelo con esa portada tan fea. PD: I know, quizas estoy siendo un poco exagerada pero es que me molesta que cambien las portadas [...]

    SPOILERS:I was in the mood for a whimsical, romantic YA story so I rolled the dice on a review copy of "The Beautiful and the Cursed." It's set in 1890s Paris, and I figured horse-drawn carriages, ballgown-clad young ladies and the romance of turn-of-the-century France would not go amiss. So the hook was gargoyles come to life.well, I've got an open mind and you just never know when a book will transcend an offbeat theme and grab you. Having just finished up the book, I can say that while this i [...]

    Some nightmares walk in the light.Holy guacamole, I have never loved a gothic novel so much! I am beyond overjoyed that I was able to nab this book from ARCycling and I truly loved every minute of reading this one. Les grotesques are my new favorite paranormal creatures. I need me some more gargoyles!The gargoyles featured in this novel is what really made me want to read this book. I was fascinated by the fact that a new paranormal creature was being brought onto the scene and I wanted to read [...]

    I was really hoping this would be good and not your typical angels and demons read and it really was so much more and so much better than I had anticipated. Definitely want to finish this series. Full review to come.

    Give me old fashioned lingering glances and squeezing of hands behind backs ANY day of the month over raunchy, steamy sex scenes. There's something beautiful in the way an author can convey emotions not in a physical sense, but an emotional one, & Page Morgan is no exception.I adored this book. It ticked all of my boxes. Historical? Check. Paris? Check. Gorgeous, mysterious guys? Check. Forbidden romances? Check. And holy moly I'll never be able to look at a gargoyle the same way again. Ever [...]

    Paris, Gargoyles, an ABBEY, ParisI'm in. You've got me.& that cover is so beautiful I'm double in.But I warn you: if the protagonist is anything like the chick in cover, you know, desperate, selfless, helpless your damn damsel in distress, we are going to have a BAD time. BAD, bad time.

    Well, as you can see down below with my little preface diagnosis, this book and I had more than a fewoblems.So you went down and checked, didn't you? Because you want to see my little diagnosis before we begin here, didn't you? Yes, of course you did. And if that's not enough evidence for my dislike of this book, take this into account: It took me nearly three days to read it. THREE. Now, I have the biggest head in the world when it comes to being a fast, proficient, good-book-liking reader. I a [...]

    The Beautiful and the Cursed is a book I've been meaning to read ever since I saw the gorgeous cover and the word "gargoyle" in the synopsis. I decided to wait to read it, however, until all three books in the trilogy were out, so I could do a binge-read. Lately, I've been finding that binge-reading gives me the best experience of a series. Part of me is glad that I waited to give this a shot, but the other half is yelling at me for not starting it sooner because I'm, without any doubt, in love [...]

    This book is very different than anything I've ever read! It was truly fantastic. I LOVED the world and being immersed in it was such a great experience. The characters are very like-able and I really enjoyed reading about Ingrid. I loved the setting in 1899 Paris, very cool! I can't even explain this book though because it is so unique. If you like crazy paranormal/fantasy books, you should like this one! Some new elements, creatures and ideas I have never even thought about are present in this [...]

    Carla *Jen7waters*
    What a disappointment. In short, this is a historical fiction version of Twilight with gargoyles, angels, and demons, instead of vampires, plus a missing brother.(Don't even think of coming at me because I'm comparing this to Twilight, I can make comparisons if I want to!)Also, when will the love triangles trend come to an end, Jesus Christ, it's so goddamn stupid and annoying. I have no patience left for this. Read at your own risk.*PT* Cuidado com o Dálmata

    Rating: 1.5 The concept of this story was interesting. It had a good start with the potential of a promising YA involving a rather unique creature (gargoyle!) and a gothic theme, but was struck by the Twilight bug bearing all its hallmarks:• Female protagonist infatuated (instalove!!) with the mysterious swoon -worthy guy with constant reference to his hunkiness (check)• Battling forbidden attraction (check)• Hero is dismissive, arrogant, rude and ‘insert other less than amorous adjectiv [...]

    3.5 starsSetting. Awesome. Characters. Awesome.Mystery. Magic. History. Awesome. Uniqueness = 100%It was a bit slow at times but it is always refreshing to read a novel and not think to yourself 'oh wait, have I read this before?'Hat off to you Page Morgan.

    J'ai adoré ce livre pour plein de raisons :- L'univers : c'est la première fois que je lis un roman fantastique qui parle de gargouilles et ça m'a beaucoup plus. La mythologie créée par l'auteur est crédible et fonctionne très bien ;- Les personnages : j'ai adoré les soeurs Waserly. Ingrid parce que même si un monde inconnu s'ouvre à elle, elle a l'esprit ouvert, pose les questions mais n'est pas rebutée ni effrayée par ce qu'elle voit, ce qu'elle apprend. Gaby parce que malgré son [...]

    actual rating: 4.5 stars This book is full of hot guys, badass ladies, and great gothic mystery. It's definitely one of my favorites of 2013. There really is only one fault I found with this book. The first 10-15% of the book was good, not great. I was a bit confused by the mythology. I was just waiting for the inevitable moment when it all clicks into place and I can enjoy the story. It happened soon after the ten percent mark; and I dove right in. After that, I didn't come up for air once. (Tr [...]

    This is tough to rate. It did keep my interest, but not enough to bother with the other books. I really liked the sensational Victorian trappings of the Beautiful & Cursed world. It has a Stoker fin-de-siecle gothic feel (with strong Supernatural & Buffy undertones), particularly in the setting -- lots of old stone buildings, cobbled streets, fog, & plush fabrics. Most of the side characters were good, & there was no disappearing parent syndrome or forced-isolation-for-ease-of-pl [...]

    MY THOUGHTS:The Beautiful and the Cursed was a reminder of why I adore YA books. Gargoyles in 1890's Paris ? Sign me up, dude! Ingrid along with her mother and sister, Gabby are forced to move to Paris from London after an accident. The sisters move into an abandoned abbey which Ingrid's mother plans to turn into an art gallery only to find that their brother, Grayson is missing when they arrive. Morgan's writing paints a vivid picture of Paris and I couldn't help but fall in love with the city [...]

    Gargoyles? GARGOYLES!While I did like the book on a general whole, it unfortunately suffered the same downfall as Megan Shepard's The Madman's Daughter, another YA gothic, did: the romance(s) underwhelmed the creative plot and setting. I really liked the spin on les grotesques that Page Morgan took with this. YA today is incredibly oversaturated with werewolves and vampires and angels. Even mermaids are making a splash on the scene. Gargoyles, on the other hand, haven't really been done, and cer [...]

    [Sunday, ‎November ‎17, ‎2013] Residing in desolate abbey protected by gargoyles, two beautiful teenaged sisters in turn-of-the-century Paris discover deadly and otherworldly truths as they search for their missing brother.

    The author sums it up best, “It’s about real living gargoyles in Paris… in the 1890’s. And they, like, protect humans. Or something.” To be perfectly honest, were you to strip all that down, you’d likely say you’d read a version of this somewhere, some when before. There’s a girl, you see, and she’s been pigeonholed as fragile and weak, only to have each action/ thought by her run contrary to that. And it’s a family affair too, this being more than you think them to be at fir [...]

    Page Morgan's debut novel, The Beautiful and the Cursed is just as beautiful inside as it is, outside. While the cover may be what originally drew me to the book, the writing and the story are what kept me reading! I'll start with the setting since that's one of the things I loved most about The Beautiful and the Cursed. Paris in 1899. What more could you ask for? Well, how about mystery and intrigue and a possibly haunted abbey covered in stone gargoyles that are more than what they appear to b [...]

    I'm beginning to loathe these kinds of books, the ones where the guy has the answer to all the girl's problems, or aids her along somehow. I'm a much bigger fan of the "girl does all the hard work and the guy likes her BECAUSE of it" story, not the "they fall in love because they're working together lalalala." It's over done, and not my cup of tea.So, when I read the synopsis and saw that Luc the "devastatingly handsome" new guy had information, I rolled my eyes. I'd really love for some heroine [...]
