Beauty (by Robin McKinley)

Sorry to drag my election depression over here to my beloved book blog, but I have to say that it is making it really difficult to find something to read. This retelling of Beauty and the Beast hit the sweet spot, though. Genre, nothing political, and decent from a feminist perspective. I really enjoyed it.

McKinley did a second, different retelling of the same fairy tale but the opening didn't grab me.  I may try her Sleeping Beauty retelling next.  But further suggestions welcome, because I honestly have no idea what to read next. (I am listening to the audibook of Scalzi's The Dispatcher, and it is also hitting the spot. So maybe sci-fi/fantasy is where I should be looking.)
