Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge by Lisa Jensen – Rant Review

They say Château Beaumont is cursed. But servant-girl Lucie can’t believe such foolishness about handsome Jean-Loup Christian Henri LeNoir, Chevalier de Beaumont, master of the estate. But when the chevalier’s cruelty is revealed, Lucie vows to see him suffer.


I realised the other day that I haven’t posted a singular positive review since February. The last couple of months I haven’t had a great run with the books I’ve been reading. But, to all my new followers, I swear that I don’t just hate on books 100% of the time, I do  have actual nice feelings and opinions (sometimes).

I very rarely review books that I don’t finish. If I do, it’s either because the publisher has sent it to me or because I have so much to say about it that I just have to do a full review. In this case, the publisher did send me this book. So normally I would try to read as much of it as possible so I can give a fair review. And yet with this book, I couldn’t even make it to 50 pages.

The writing in this book is so boring, I could hardly get my brain to focus on it. It was extremely dull and dryer than a desert. There was zero emotion or feeling within the writing at all. Leaving me struggling to get through every single page.

The main character also seemed to have no personality or thoughts whatsoever. I’m not joking, I don’t think she had a single thought in all the pages I read (I know I didn’t read that many pages, but still!) Every line was either dialogue, an action, or a description, and that was literally it!

Once again, I read so little of this book that you can’t take my review to seriously. However, I’m just baffled by how much I hated the writing in this novel, and how much this book could bore me in so little pages.


Beast: A Tale of Love and Revenge, was gifted to me by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
