The Belles was just okay for me. It started off pretty strong, but the story got lost in all the beautiful dresses, make up, and beauty.

I think the author had a very unique idea, but she lost that idea by trying to add in too much beauty stuff. At times I felt like I was watching a Kardashian episode and that is not a good thing. This was sad because I truly did enjoy the world and I thought the story was pretty strong with quite a few twists I didn't see coming. All that was overshadowed though.

The pacing was also a bit slow and I think this was due to all the beauty descriptions. I know the beauty part was a big plot line of the story so I know it had to be up front and center I just think there was a better way to weave it in.
