16 Thoughts I Had While Reading Hunted by Meagan Spooner

Release Date: March 14, 2017
from HarperTeen
Goodreads | Amazon
Source: I received a copy of this book from the publisher via edelweiss and voluntarily provided a fair and honest review.
"Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s
highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them.

So when her father loses his fortune and moves Yeva and her sisters back to the outskirts of town, Yeva is secretly relieved. Out in the wilderness, there’s no pressure to make idle chatter with vapid baronessas…or to submit to marrying a wealthy gentleman. But Yeva’s father’s misfortune may have cost him his mind, and when he goes missing in the woods, Yeva sets her sights on one prey: the creature he’d been obsessively tracking just before his disappearance.

Deaf to her sisters’ protests, Yeva hunts this strange Beast back into his own territory—a cursed valley, a ruined castle, and a world of creatures that Yeva’s only heard about in fairy tales. A world that can bring her ruin or salvation. Who will survive: the Beauty, or the Beast?"

My Thoughts:

1. Alright Beauty and the Beast retelling! Let’s do this!
2. Her Dad is aggravating me.
3. Solomir…. Are you the Beast or Gaston *ponders*
4. Yeva… you is kinda dumb.
5. Where did the dog go? Wasn’t there a dog here? Did I make up a doggo?
6. Yeah sure. Lemme just wear this blindfold. This is all normal.
7. Big broody scary Beast is cranky.
8. Yeah. Me and this Beast are not gonna get along. He doesn’t like the puppers.
9. I’m skimming. I’m skimming. Skim skim skim.
10. Doe Eyes (doggo) is the best character tbh.
11. There really isn’t much dialogue is there. The writing is pretty but I think more dialogue would help me understand the characters better.
12. Where is this magic forest? Is it the same forest just with a magic veil? Is it a new forest? Someone explain.
13. Per above point, I think we skipped the class on World Building 101.
14. Totes magotes saw this twist coming.
15. See, this is what happens when you procrastinate.
16. That was kinda anticlimactic. I was hoping for more from this one.

Wrap Up
So to wrap up, I was disappointed with this one. There was potential there but it just never really grabbed me and I didn’t love any of the characters. I wish I had loved this one but we just didn’t click.


  1. OMG hahaha, I LOVED reading this :P Sad that this was a let down though, which is surprising because I thought THESE BROKEN STARS was amazing. Oh well :/ Glad there was a doggo though! Great review :)

    1. I loved These Broken Stars too! Thats why I was so bummed by this one.

  2. I think we had the same feelings. I was super stoked and then it just...ended.

  3. I love this so much! Reviews are awesome, but it's so nice and different to actually see what's going on inside your head while reading. More of this, please!

    1. Thanks! Definitely plan to do more posts like this! It was a lot fun.

  4. I'm so sorry you didn't like this book, but I'm not sorry because I got to read your 16 thoughts. Love this review and can't wait for more like this!


I love getting comments and appreciate every single one of them! It always brightens my day =]
