Hello Hello! How are you all?

I’m back on the blog today to bring you a spotlight for Revenge of the Beast, the 2nd book in The Beast and the Bethany series written by Jack Meggitt-Phillips. This book is currently on #UltimateBlogTour with Dave and the team from @The_WriteReads.

I read the first book, The Beast and the Bethany, last year during that tour, and it was just amazing, so when this tour was announced I couldn’t let it pass. I’m still way too busy to be able to read and review the book, but when I have finished university and handed in my thesis, I’ll be able to read it at my pleasure, and I have to tell you, I am REALLY looking forward to that!

Thank you so much to Dave, the author and the publisher for letting me take part in this tour, it is always such a pleasure, and especially for a story that I know I will love so much when I get around to reading it!

Now without further ado, here is all the information you need to make you want to pick up this book yourself!!


Lemony Snicket meets Roald Dahl in this riotously funny, deliciously macabre, and highly illustrated sequel to The Beast and the Bethany in which Bethany and Ebenezer try to turn over a new leaf, only to have someone—or something—thwart them at every turn.

Once upon a very badly behaved time, 511-year-old Ebenezer kept a beast in his attic. He would feed the beast all manner of objects and creatures and in return the beast would vomit him up expensive presents. But then the Bethany arrived.

Now notorious prankster Bethany, along with her new feathery friend Claudette, is determined that she and Ebenezer are going to de-beast their lives and Do Good. But Bethany finds that being a former prankster makes it hard to get taken on for voluntary work. And Ebenezer secretly misses the beast’s vomity gifts. And neither of them are all that sure what “good people” do anyway.

Then there’s Claudette, who’s not been feeling herself recently. Has she eaten something that has disagreed with her?


Jack Meggitt-Phillips is an author, scriptwriter, and playwright whose work has been performed at The Roundhouse and featured on Radio 4. He is a scriptwriter and presenter of The History of Advertising podcast.

In his mind, Jack is an enormously talented ballroom dancer, however, his enthusiasm far surpasses his actual talent. Jack lives in north London where he spends most of his time drinking peculiar teas and reading P.G. Wodehouse novels.

That’s all for now, I hope you enjoyed reading this post and will check out this series soon. I for one, can’t wait to dive back into this spectacular world!

See you soon, stay safe,
