I received this complimentary e-ARC from the publisher, in exchange for an honest review.
Curses is a gender-bent, Beauty and the Beast retelling (don't worry, there's a Gaston character as well, ;)) I really enjoyed this twist on a classic fairy-tale. Merit, is cursed for acting "beastly" for not going to her arranged marriage engagement party, and has until her 16th birthday, to either get married to her mother's choice, or fall in love. You'd think this would be an uncommon thing right? Wrong! Merit is a part of, and has made friends in a cursed support group!
I enjoyed the adventure, different POV's and diversity throughout the book. There's also a fair amount of adventure, laughs and twists to keep you interested!
I recommend this book if you love fantasy, fairytale retellings, witty and strong female leads, and a slow burn romance!
