Grim Lovlies is a book I heard little about before going into it. I have heard of this book hear and there but not much about it. The main thing that intrigued me was the cover and that this book takes place in Paris. If you did not know, Paris is the number one place on my travel bucket list of places I have never been before.
This book follows a girl name Anouk who is a Beastie meaning that she originally was an animal but was turned human. The witch who turns her into a human is murdered and this means that Anouk and the other Beasties that the witch has turned now only has 3 days before they turn back into their original form. After becoming human, non on the beasties want to become animals again so they go on this quest to try to find a way to stay human.
I was surprised by how much I enjoyed it. I think it helped that I had little expectations going into this book mainly because I did not hear many people's opinions before going into the book.
The beginning was confusing and the writing style in the beginning did not click with me that well, but as the story went on, I started to understand what was happening and the writing must of improved because it stopped bothering me after awhile. I think it just took me some time to understand the world and the concept of what a beastie was.
I did not like the main character Anouk that much. She irritated me quite a bit during the book and I did not agree with all her decisions. I also did not like Beau, another beastie that much as well. My favorite character in this book is by far Cricket. I just love her so much! There are also a lot of different creatures in this book such as goblins and witches so if that is something that appeals to you defiantly give this book a shot!
Overall I really did enjoy this book and do want to continue on with the duology!
