So well in fact that he is the gorgeous hunk that is going to be turned into a beast for another upcoming book-to-movie, Beastly, due to release July 30.
I haven't read the book it's the (duh) modern day telling of Beauty and the Beast.
I am a beast.
A beast. Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright—a creature with fangs and claws and hair springing from every pore. I am a monster.
You think I'm talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It's no deformity, no disease. And I'll stay this way forever—ruined—unless I can break the spell.
Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I'll tell you. I'll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I'll tell you how I became perfectly . . . beastly.
Will you be seeing the movie?
I was iffy about the movie before but since I'm a new Alex fan, I'm sure I'll be checking it out. Now the only question is...
Should I read the book before I see the film?
