I loved the concept of the Belles. Camellia wanted nothing more than to become the favorite Belle, but she soon discovers that there might just be more to being a Favorite than she bargained for. This was my first book by Dhonielle Clayton, and I was fascinated with the writing and am looking forward to checking out more of her work!
Some of the writing in The Belles was so beautiful. The descriptions were exquisite and made everything so easy to picture in my mind. I fell straight into this strange world where you can go to a Belle and change anything about yourself that you do not like. The concept was fresh and original. At the end we were left with a cliff-hanger, but it was done tastefully in a way that made me anticipate reading the sequel.
