My Rating: 5 Roses

Dark, creepy, and absolutely brilliant! Grim was a fantastic read. Every story in this anthology was amazing. With retellings of classics, from Beauty and the Beast to The Three Little Pigs, this entire book was magnificent. Loved it!

There are quite a few stories in this anthology, so I'm not going to go into each one individually. But, I will say that each story was dark and unique. I truly enjoyed all of them. They were quite varied-in genre, in tone, in theme-and I really liked that variation. We got romances, dystopians, thrillers, and much more. And they were all great.

I really liked all the characters in this book, whether they were protagonists or antagonists. Despite the fact that these were all short stories, each character felt fleshed out.

I was completely hooked through each story and I loved every one.

Honestly, I could go on and on about how amazing this book is, but I'll spare you. Grim was a brilliant anthology. YA lovers, you definitely have to read it, because it was just wonderful.
