Genre: YA Anthology Horror/Paranormal
My Rating: 3 Stars!
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
Like with all anthologies some of the stories are amazing and some are not.
This set of anthologies was like no other that I have tried. Most of the authors are well known young adult authors and while these story were nothing short of odd they were all intriguing and fun in there own way.
We get classic retellings on old favorites, a play, fairy tales, curses and death, lots and lots of death. And while all of these don't have a happily ever after, some of them do but all of them have one thing in common, they are all all about the strange, the magical and the mystic. They are all completely unique and completely unlike anything most of these authors have ever written before.
Overall this was a good collection of short stories by a variety of popular authors that would make a good in between series read and a good read for when you don't have a lot of time for a full length novel.
