Beauty and the Werewolf - Mercedes Lackey

"Highbrow. Lowbrow, and everything in between: that's always been the way in our family." - my sister, in her infinite wisdom, hit upon a new family motto


I was really enjoying this book. It's undeniably silly, but entertaining. I didn't even mind that the villain was hilarious apparent in the first fifty pages, with means and motive right there for all to see. But then it really started bothering me that Isabella is so focused on self-pity that she doesn't take that and turn it around and feel in the least bit sorry for Sebastian and what he's been through. Get with the romance already! And have some empathy, Bella.
