Synopsis: Inspired by classic fairy tales, but with a dark and sinister twist, Grim contains short stories from some of the best voices in young adult literature today:
Jeri Smith Ready
Shaun David Hutchinson
The Key – Rachel Hawkins
A dark novella presented by Rachel Hawkins. A story about a girl who can see things by touching people. We only have a few pages, it’s very short and it is true that the end comes too quickly and we still have unresolved things after a big event. Terrible! I would have liked to know the end.
Figment – Jeri Smith -Ready
I have not read the author yet but I must say that this story is really touching, a story about friendship and luck. Two unusual friends who, whatever happens, think they will always think of the other. It was really touching.
The Twelfth Girl – Malinda Lo
As for the Key, it’s an intriguing start about a young girl who tries to be integrated and yet finds herself in the middle of a story that transcends her. But I confess that I wish I had an end here to know if Liv was able to find a solution to her problems.
The Raven Princess – Jon Skovron
Oh it’s a really nice story. A sort of a tale , even if it is true that I did not expect this. A girl who is cursed and a man who will do anything to save her when he does not even know her. I loved it.
Thinner than Water – Saundra Mitchell
I think this is the first time I ‘m uncomfortable reading a story. It’s pretty twisted and difficult to read. The writing is very good but it is true that this is a very delicate topic we approach here. But I’m glad about the final.
Before the Rose Bloomed – Ellen Hopkins
I loved the presentation of this story. It truly takes us to the center of a tale that is fun to follow. A small quest.
Beast / Beast – Tessa Gratton
Oh this is really a nice adaptation of the Beauty and the Beast. I took z great pleasure in discovering these two touching characters and see how they got to know the other. A very nice discovery.
The Brothers Piggett – Julie Kagawa
A little story between two young people who, because of a misunderstanding, becomes very sad. I am very sorry for this young girl who didn’t want anything and who loses everything. I do not expect a story such as this from the author, I thought we would go back to the world of the Fae series.
Untethered – Sonia Gensler
A nice ghost story about forgiveness and regret. There is even a small revelation. It’s a nice story that breaks our heart.
Better – Shaun David Hutchinson
We discover Pip, this unusual character who hopes to find love and live like everyone else. But his existence has a specific gross, to save the dying children. A beautiful story about the love of two people who want to stay together.
Light it Up – Kimberly Derting
Oh after the beauty and the beast , this is a remix of Hansel and Gretel with Hansen and Greta, but in our workd and I loved the author’s ideas for updating this story.
Sharper than a serpent ‘s tongue – Christine Johnson
We find this time a story about magic and revenge. Two daughters whose life changes drastically in an instant and must find a way to live with that.
A Real Boy – Claudia Gray
What a touching story! I really liked it, it is really beautiful. The discovery of two people from a different world, a single robot and a girl who create an unbreakable bond . I think I would love to read a full story about this world and these characters.
Skin Trade – Myra McEntire
I did not know the author and I do not know if this is part of a new series, but I must say that I had a little trouble understanding all …
Beauty and the Chad – Sarah Ress Brennan
Oh a new version of the Beauty and the Beast and full of humor and for once we also have animated objects and I enjoyed their presence. A very good idea for this story. A beautiful novella from the real story but such a different beast!
The Pink – Amanda Hocking
Here we discover a beautiful story about a prince whose wishes could come true and who attracted the wrong people. But it is also a nice love story about friendship and loyalty.
Sell Out – Jackson Pearce
We conclude now on a new tale about Sleeping Beauty that I found very original.
I really took enjoyed each of these stories, some shorter than others but it allows us to discover many authors.
