    1. The second in the Beau Rivage stories is Liv's Snow White curse. The first book was Kill Me Softly and this book is probably easier to follow if you have read it. You get more of the why the curses exist if you've read the first one. Liv aka Snow White is a spoiled little brat. She is so afraid of her curse that she treats her boyfriend (who has been her friend since a young age) like dog ca-ca. She wants him.e doesn't want hime flirts with other guys to show him she doesn't want him. GAG!She ke [...]


    2. I'm not giving this 2 stars because it's unreadable or unbelievably boring.I'm giving it 2 stars because I couldn't find many redeeming qualities in the characters or the story.I really enjoyed Cross' first book in this world, Kill Me Softly. It was darker than most of the fairytales I'd read, and I thought the world itself was very cool.Viv was a minor character from that one, and I wanted to see what happened to her.Yeah, now I'm wishing I hadn't.Viv is living under a Snow White curse. She and [...]


    3. (Source: I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis. Thanks to The Fantastic Flying Book Club, Egmont USA, and NetGalley.)"There really is a monster after me, you know. The Huntsman. He's supposed to cut my heart out."This was a really good fairy tale story, and it even had a bit of a darker side!I really loved Viv and Henley in this, Viv actually loved her step-mother, and was upset by the way she treated her, and had suddenly turned against her, and I felt really [...]


    4. This retelling of Snow White has not managed to enamour me to the genre of modern fairytales. The concept was interesting but I did find it hard to wrap my head around at times. There was also a lot of fairy tale characters in this novel and the author assumed that the reader knew every tale, therefore not bothering to explain a lot of their stories.I found the main character Vivian to be an annoying spoiled brat who treated her on again off again boyfriend like shit. I found it hard to feel any [...]


    5. I had to suppress the urge multiple times to roll my eyes throughout Tear You Apart. I didn't have a very good reading experience, and there's only so much drama and ridiculousness I can handle in a book before I lose it. Wayyyy too much girl-on-girl hatred, lots of selfishness, bad choices galore, and a retelling that isn't even that unique. Viv is an insufferable brat who constantly bathes in self-pity whilst I forced myself to endure her long-winded complaint sprees. Good lawd, if she is the [...]


    6. To see full review with gifs click here.Disclaimer: I recieved an digital review copy via Netgalley this did not change or influence my opinion of this book.I’m a huge fan of Snow White. When done right. Unfortunately, more often than not the fairytale gets sort of short sided (cough, having a movie with you’re starring character being portrayed by K Stew is never a good thing, cough). So anytime there’s a YA retelling of Snow’s slightly demented story I’m game just like a demented dwa [...]


    7. So fun!! literally read it in less than 24 hours! :) This is my first Sarah Cross book. I had no idea what to expect, but I've seen some great reviews of her work in the past, so I was super excited to read TEAR YOU APART.From what I've read on other reviews, this is sort of a "companion" novel to KILL ME SOFTLY. I hadn't read KILL ME SOFTLY, so I was a little worried that I wouldn't be able to connect to the characters in this one--but that didn't happen at all! I loved this book, I loved (and [...]


    8. *NetGalley book review*You know the saying LESS IS MORE! Well, people need to remember that. This story was okay, it would have been better if it didn't have so much packed into it. Maybe cut a 4th of the action and it would have been an excellent book. Now this is my opinion and mine alone, but if you like twisted Snow White stories this is for you.


    9. I'M DONE. A miracle.I didn't like it as much as the first. Not even close. I was so very detached from the characters so I couldn't like any of them. So very disappointed. I don't even want to bother with a review for this one.-------I absolutely loved Sarah Cross' Kill Me Softly so I had to remind myself to stay calm when I found out this book. The only reason I didn't squeal or cry out OH MY GOOOOOOD when I found out NetGalley approved this for early review was because its practically 5 and ev [...]



    10. My review can also be found @ Bittersweet EnchantmentAt one time or another most of us have dreamt of being a fairy tale character in a book or movie. Whether you wished to be a princess in a tower awaiting your price to come and rescue you, or a evil queen bent on ruling the world. We all love the idea of having our happily ever after. In the city of Beau Rivage fairy tales are real. The people of the Beau Rivage all are blessed or rather cused with one fairy tale or another. Vivian has the "Sn [...]


    11. EgmontUSA may be shutting down, but at least they're releasing their 2015 slate. The first one I just had to read is TEAR YOU APART, the companion to KILL ME SOFTLY. The first book introduced Beau Rivage, the town where descendants of faerie-human unions are forced to live out curses, curses worse than living in Mississippi for the rest of your life.One of the big differences between TEAR YOU APART and KILL ME SOFTLY is that Viv grew up in Beau Rivage. She knows exactly what story she's living, [...]


    12. There are some things that I"m just a complete sucker for in books. One is fairytales. And Tear You Apart is a medley of many different fairytales, but unlike some books, it manages to work very well.This wasn't a bad book, but could definitely use some explanations. So first off, there's Vivian. She's actually really annoying at the beginning. She's like a huge sorry-not-sorry type of person, but with her beauty. I'm supposed to not look pretty so my stepmother won't be jealous, but I can't HEL [...]


    13. 3.5 stars This was the first fairy tale re-telling I've ever read. This book exceeded my expectations. I really enjoyed the modern twist on Snow White and how other fairy tales were woven into the story. At times I found the writing a bit comical. This story has really peaked my interest in the Grimm fairy tales.I found myself a bit annoyed with Viv at times. Her actions pissed me off a lot. I found her rather self-centered and spoiled. I feel as if she took Henley for granted and then expected [...]



    14. Review courtesy of Dark Faerie TalesQuick & Dirty: This main character grated on my nerves, but other than her, the story bored me half to death.Opening Sentence: Viv stood in front of the mirror, painstakingly sabotaging her appearance.The Review:Vivian is trapped in a Snow White curse. It’s not a pleasant one. She’s doomed to one of two lives — one in which her love, who was deemed the Huntsman, kills her, or one in which he lets her live on only to watch her marry another. When she [...]


    15. This is a richer, deeper, better book than the first in the Beau Rivage series by a long shot. The tangled fairytale world is super intriguing, and the main character, self-destructive as she is, acts in a consistent, understandable (if frustrating) way.At the core of this book is a deeply fucked-up relationship between a girl with a Snow White curse and the boy doomed to be her Huntsman (as in, the guy who cuts her heart out). So there's a lot of push and pull between this physically defenseles [...]


    16. This wasn't at all what I was expecting.Don't crack these pages looking to read about another princess to love! Vivian is prickly and rude and crude and spoiled. She's just the princess you might think one would be. Told her whole life, she would be saved, she would have her prince - now she's mad she didn't get to pick which one would be hers.But, knowing that her evil stepmother will want a huntsman to kill her soon, she's startled to find her fairytale has jumped a little out of order and she [...]


    17. Main character knows her 'beloved' is supposed to kill her due to the curse (not a spoiler if you've read the first book (no need though) or if you've read the first few pages of this story.She acts like an idiot and finds her prince only to tell her to-be killer about that and he gets jealous. (Motive anyone?)She's annoying that she complains about her life and the curse but does things that make it worse.*slow claps*I like that sometimes she seemed human, but making a situation worse is not go [...]


    18. Diversity + creativity FTW. This series is up there with Lunar Chronicles for my favorite fairy tale retellings.Review to come!


    19. 4.5 stars.Honestly, there are things in this book that annoy me -- some veiled materialism, the lack of the seven dwarfs as in dwarf form (but we can see seven helpers here in the form of the protagonist's friend Blue, Mira, Kayla, Freddie, Jewel, Jack and Elliot), an abiding sense of anguish but this is one of the most beautiful fairytales retellings I have ever read. Despite some flaws, it's really good: engaging, fascinating, enthralling, so very well written (I usually don't like most writin [...]


    20. FAVORITE QUOTES"My chipmunks would bite the shit out of you. You might now want to risk it."~ page 140 (ARC)"Is there something wrong with my face?" the queen demanded. "Oh! I'd forgotten! This one's the fairest of them all. No wonder she doesn't like what she sees!"~ page 233 (ARC)"Yes, Vivian, my lovely queen wasn't fated for the underworld, so the magic has spoiled her mind. But you needn't be concerned that will happen to you. If you go mad, it will be for other reasons."~ page 234 (ARC)MY R [...]


    21. Viv knows she can't escape her Snow White curse. She knows that Regina, her stepmother, will feed her a poison apple or will order Viv's ex-boyfriend, Henley, who plays the role of the Huntsman, to relieve her of her heart. No matter what she does she knows the curse/ destiny will take control of her life. Then, she actually meets her prince. You know, the one she'll have her happily ever after with (if Henley, aka the Huntsman, doesn't cut out her heart for Regina, that is) after he awakens her [...]


    22. I did not particularly enjoy this book. It's a fairy tale retelling which I love so that's why I got it. But I was disappointed. Like, Viv was awful I thought. She was a whiny brat. I couldn't stand her. Nor either of the boys, Jasper and what's-his-name (I'm writing this a couple days after finishing the story and I cannot remember the Huntsman's name. Oops). To me, it felt like the lacked development. The evil queen, Regina (someone watches Once Upon a Time it appears), was great. I liked her [...]


    23. DNF at 274 pages.Title: Tear You ApartAuthor: Sarah CrossAge Group: Teen/Young AdultGenre: FantasySeries: Beau Rivage, book twoStar Rating: 1 out of 5 starsThe bottom line: Chock-full of unhealthy teenage literature tropes, with a punk Snow White as the star, I really enjoyed Viv's story--at first. But I just couldn't finish it.This book was given to me by Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.Viv, a young woman who lives in the darkly enchanted town of Beau Rivage, has a lot of problems. I [...]


    24. Tear You Apart was not quite what I was expecting. Viv lives in a world of the wealthy, where curses can be bought and the roles are played out by those involved in your life. Viv becomes Snow White, her boyfriend The Huntman instead of the Prince… and her stepmother must play out her role as well. An interesting concept and one that I enjoyed, but I did hate Viv so much… she was spoiled, toyed with her boyfriend whenever she felt insecure and still wanted the perfect happily ever after.As m [...]


    25. There are so many reasons why I adore not only this book but the whole series, I really enjoy reading fairytale retellings no matter the fairytale I will pick it up and read it, also having this book compared to the tv shows Once Upon A Time and Grimm which I both love to watch made it almost a 100% guarantee that I was going to thoroughly enjoy this book, and enjoy it I did.Having read and reviewed the first book Kill Me Softly and giving it five stars I was already familiar with the authors wr [...]


    26. From a modern-day Snow Write to a party in the Underground including nonstop partying with Twelve Dancing Princesses & a troll with Rumplestiltskin curse, Tear You Apart is a twisted book of a town carrying curses of different tales which emphasizing on a story of Viv. Viv has a curse of Snow White and unfortunately everyone knows that her stepmother will be the one who one day come after her heart. & her boyfriend is supposed to be one who will cut her heart out - the Huntsman. Noone re [...]


    27. **I received this book for free from (EgmontUSA ) via (NetGalley) in exchange for an honest review. Thank you!! This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.***Genre* Young Adult, Fantasy, Fairy Tale Retelling*Rating* 3.0*My Thoughts*Tear You Apart is actually the second installment in the Beau Rivage series by Sarah Cross. I have NOT read Kill Me Softly yet and probably should have before reading this story. Beau Rivage is not your typical town. Cross has created a pl [...]


    28. I swear this author could write about something dumb like pine trees and I would be utterly captivated. I am totally in love with this series- it is magical, fun, and doesn't take itself too seriously. Now that being said, it isn't a funny book- it is full of romance and fighting and people murdering other people- all in the name of fairy tale curses. The first book in this series, Kill Me Softly, was one of my favorite books of the year- and when I heard that there was going to be a second book [...]


    29. I really enjoy this take on fairy tales. The entire plot line is really clever and unique. Viv is interesting as a MC. I struggled with her for a while because while I can understand her struggle, I didn't care for it. I loathe the push/pull relationship she has with Henley. There were some deliciously creepy characters in this book. I don't want to give away too much, so I'll just say that I loved hearing about the different curses. And there was a pretty excellent twist to the ending. All in a [...]


    30. Ok this book had all the makings of things I like. It was a fairy tale telling, modernized fairy tale, many tales making a cameo,a princess, prince, childhood friends and fairy curses! But there was one or two things I just really really couldn't stand. I really hated Viv. She was such a hypocrite and really into wallowing in her own self pity. All those years she knew this curse shit was gonna go down one day and she never tried to find her own way out of it. That I can almost forgive if not fo [...]


    31. "Somewhere, someone's dream was coming true.And someone's was ending"Tear You Apart was okay, but it was hard to get through, the main character is unlikable until the very end chapters, and it portrays a very unhealthy romantic relationship."That was Beau Rivage: grime and glitter, magic tucked into shadows and hidden in plain sight. Normal people went about their own dysfunctional lives while the Cursed ran the city, and the strangeness went largely unnoticed."The premise for the whole world o [...]


    32. I loved this! Meeting Viv and Henley in Kill Me Softly was cool but actually reading their story was amazing! I think No I know I love Henley more than Blue. And poor Viv I totally got her fears. I really hope Sarah decides to write more stories from this world. With such an awesome cast there are so many possibilities!


    33. Man, this was a really fantastic book! Loved Liv's story, and how it all worked! Really enjoyed it a lot, and I really hope there's more books in this series!



    34. Tear You Apart was certainly dark and twisted like the fairy tales it's based on. Viv has the Snow White curse. Her curse is especially cruel because she's in love with the Huntsman who is destined to either cut out her heart or lose her to her prince. I was very excited about this, because it had the potential for an "if I can't have you, no one can" twist, since Henley can either kill Viv and keep her heart for always (literally) or spare her and lose her.I definitely liked Tear You Apart more [...]

    36. KISS ME SOFLTY war lange Zeit eine Art Geheimtipp von mir. Der Vorgängerband zu diesem Roman hier, gefiel mir damals ausgesprochen gut, war mit seinem Konzept ähnlich wie die Serie Once Upon A Time (die gab es zum Erscheinen des Buches auch noch nicht) und mal was Neues. TEAR YOU APART war von mir sehnlichst herbei gewünscht, weil ich einfach wollte, dass Sarah Cross endlich ein neues Buch schreibt.Pustekuchen!Das Buch beginnt eigentlich gar nicht so schlecht. Viv kennen wir schon aus Band ei [...]

    38. I absolutely loved Tear You Apart. It went above and beyond the original novel, Kill Me Softly, and took the traditional Snow White to new heights. If you’ve read Kill Me Softly, you already know that Cross has a negative outlook on the traditional fairytale. And why shouldn’t she? They are full of torment, torture, bad people, and helpless maids (or wicked ones). As much as I do love fairytales, it is quite refreshing to see them in a new light.Our main character, Viv (Snow White), has alwa [...]


    39. Honestly, the writing is quite decent. The book is not poorly written, but I can’t still bring myself to actually like it. This is in fact a companion of the book Kill Me Softly, but the story was not so difficult to grasp. I didn’t have difficulties figuring things out though I haven’t read Kill Me Softly. The entire premise is truly intriguing that I’ve finished reading it. However, the book has a lot of eye roll worthy parts and I’ve had some Insert-My-WTF-Face moments. The plot was [...]


    40. 'Tear You Apart' is another installment in a young adult fantasy series where the majority of the main characters have been given fairy tale curses - only it takes place in the present time. The mixture of the two - our current society and the various fairy tales we all grew up listening to and reading - gives this book a truly original style and makes it stand out from the other fairy tale retellings that are quite popular lately. In this book, the main focus is on our heroine - Viv - whose mot [...]


    41. Tear You Apart is follow up to Kill Me Softly and is the second in the Beau Rivage series. Ever have it happen where you’re done with a book, thought it was good and don’t think about again until months later? That’s my experience with Kill Me Softly. I thought it was such a creative but frightening spin on those age-old stories, wrote my review and that was it. Months later it popped into my head and I found myself wanting more from this crazy town of Beau Rivage where people live out the [...]


    42. Three stars: A book with creative world building, but falters with a weak romance. Viv is tired of waiting for the event that will change her life one way or another. Viv was born with the Snow White curse. As Snow White, she will either have her heart cut out by the Huntsman, who just so happens to be her best friend, Henley, whom she is a love/hate relationship with, or poisoned by her Stepmother Regina. Until she meets her fate, Viv *isn't really living. Will she be doomed to die or will Viv [...]


    43. Vivian is a member of the Cursed, people destined to live a fairy tale; that is, to experience some version of an actual fairy tale in our times. When she was born, her deceased mother chose Snow White because she wanted Viv to have a happily ever after with a prince. Of course, the 21st century cannot be mapped precisely on the imaginary world of the Brothers Grimm, and all versions of a tale do not turn out the same way. Further, parents have seldom been successful at devising ideal lives for [...]


    44. 2.5/5 StarsIf you like Once Upon a Time but prefer something darker, read this book. It was a good book. The plot is very interesting and the writing style is great. The world that Sarah Cross has created is outstanding. So, what stops me from falling in love with this book? The toxic relationship of the main couple. Vivian is so nasty to Henley for no good reason, and he's violent tendencies, although he never physically harms Viv, makes him hard to fall in love with. I think Cross tries to exp [...]


    45. I received a review copy via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. The opening line of the book's description (according to ) is as follows: "An edgy fairy tale retelling of "Snow White" set in the world of Kill Me Softly for fans of Once Upon a Time and Grimm." Now I must admit that I have not read Kill Me Softly, nor have I watched Once Upon a Time or Grimm. That said, I love fairy tale retellings and the rest of the synopsis, along with the cover, had me intrigued to read Tear You Apart [...]
