I was drawn in from the very beginning of the book. The words drew me in and painted a picture I didn’t want to stop looking at. Camellia is a Belle. They control beauty. Can you even imagine that?
She wants to be a Favorite, Belle to the royal family, but she has a choice to make. And how will she choose?
I loved that throughout the story, the idea of what is beautiful is shown in every shape, size, and color. There is whimsy and intrigue and things that make you go hmmmm.
A good book will leave you wanting more, wanting the next installment NOW! The Belles did that for me. The words were weaved in a way that made me not want to stop reading. It made me part of the world of The Belles.
