What a delightful read indeed! Cruel Beauty managed to steal my attention, and distract me from my schoolwork. It led me to procrastinate for a day! And for that, I'm still deliberating if I should add it to my 'faves' shelf. lol
I am a sucker for fairytale retellings these days. Anyway, I ducked 1 star because some parts, particularly the mythology, confused me.
Oh, I also declare bragging rights, since at my very first progress update, I already figured the real identity of Shade. Despite the many pages that (sort of) stated otherwise, I clang to my theory. And heck, I finished the book emerging victorious just because I slayed the plot twist or revelation. Hahaha
