Christine Johnson ò 6 CHARACTERS

Christine Johnson ò 6 CHARACTERS CHARACTERS Grim by Christine Johnson í PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB 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. The links to the failytales are posted with this review at Addicted2HeroinesAnthologies are hard to rate so this 4 star rating is for the book as a whole and not the individual storiesI had fun with this one because I was determined to find out what fairytales all of these stories were retellingLet me say it wasn t all that easy I m not sure I m even right with uite a few of them but after spending hours searching the web for clues I think I ve figured most of them out However if you think I m wrong please leave a comment and let me know what you think the story really wasM kayHere goes nothingThe Key by Rachel Hawkins4 starsReally short story about a girl with the ability to touch people and read their thoughts It was very creepy and the ending left uite a bit to the imagination I had an extremely hard time finding a fairytale that even remotely resembled this one but finally settled on a story I found called The Golden Key That fairytale is short has a cliffhanger ending albeit a rather boring one and uhthey word key is also in the titleAnyone else got anything Edit One of the many reasons I think Goodreads is spectacular is because when you ask a uestion someone in the community will eventually come along and give you the answer Although you really need to prepare yourself to feel a bit stupid when they doSoThe fairly obviousnow that I think about it answer to What Fairytale is The Key has been foundBluebeardDuhThank you FallingAngelsFigment by Jeri Smith Ready3 starsWeird story about a good luck charm that acts as sort of an imaginary friend The story kinda grew on me and I thought the ending was cute and sweetThis was one of the ones that I couldn t find anything on when I searched the Grimm library I did find a story called Good Luck is Better Than Gold by Juliana Horatia Ewing but I don t really think it counts as a fairytale It s not a story the Grimm brothers collected and it s not really folklore Is itSoanybody have any other ideas about this one EditOk So thank you Autumn for pointing me in the right direction with this one What we have here looks to be a retelling of Puss In Boots I swear I never even thought about that one but it totally matches up Loving the Goodreads community right nowThe Twelfth Girl by Malinda Lo3 starsThis is a pretty obvious Finally Thank God retelling of The Twelve Dancing Princesses It s set in modern times at an elite boarding school The main character wants to become part of the exclusive group of girls who seem to come and go as they please on campus Rumor has it they dance the night awayThis one is darker and the ending is left to the reader s imaginationThe Raven Princess by Jon Skovron35 starsOk I d never heard of The Raven but at least this one wasn t hard to findThe short story closely mirrors the actual fairytale with the exception of the ending I liked the author s twist on things and I enjoyed finding a new fairytale but it didn t blow my mind It gets the extra half star for introducing me to something newThinner Than Water by Saundra Mitchell5 starsThis story rocked my purple fuzzy socks offIt s a retelling of Donkeyskinbut served with a steaming cup of revengeIf you aren t familiar with the tale it involves a king who wants to marry his daughter Ewwww The original story didn t uite end the same way but I think most of you will love the way Mitchell s version goes downThis is definitely not a fairlytale for childrenBefore the Rose Bloomed A Retelling of the Snow ueen by Ellen Hopkins25 starsAs the title suggests this was uma retelling of The Snow ueen It stays fairly faithful to the original which is fine but it would have been cool to see something differentBeastBeast by Tessa Gratton45 starsThis was a really good retelling of Beauty and the Beast Beauty had a wild edge to her and the Beast was very mild mannered It focused on why the freedom to choose who you love means so much to us Lovely endingThe Brothers Piggett by Julie Kagawa4 starsThis was a dark retelling of The Three Little PigsNo seriously That ending is freakyLoved Kagawa s creepy twist on the taleUntethered by Sonia Gensler4 starsIt s a ghost story with twist Well played Ms Gensler I didn t see it comingHere was another one that had me burning up Google till the wee hours of the morning What fairytale was this based onWell I think I found it MwahahahahaOk there s this obscure tale called The Shroud Has anyone heard of itYeah Didn t think soAnyone else got a better guessBetter by Shaun Hutchinson4 starsI love that this one had a sci fi setting A clone used for medical experiments on a spaceship falls in love with a boy She s been told she s not real but what actually makes us humanI m guessing this one was Pinocchio I m a REAL boyAnd by the way does anybody know if Pinocchio is in the Grimm collection I can t find anything definitive and if not it would go a long way toward my Good Luck is Better Than Gold theory EditHuh Not Pinocchio at all This one is actually based on The Pied Piper of HamelinOr at least that s what the author said Thank you Shaun Hutchinson And I suppose he knows what he s talking about There goes my Better Than Gold theory Damn Light It Up by Kimberly Derting45 starsDamn fine modern retelling of Hansel and GretelNothing says I love my step kids uite like dumping them in the woods with a cannibalistic serial killer But the real moral of the story isyou should always wear flame retardant clothing when you are preparing to cook childrenSharper than a Serpent s Tongue by Christine Johnson4 starsCool twist on the classic Diamonds and Toads story The good sister receives the blessing Jewels and flowers that fall from her mouth with each word And the bad sister receives the curse of snakes and toads falling from her mouthBut which is the good sister and which is really cursedA Real Boy by Claudia Gray35 starsDystopiansci fi setting for what I m guessing is Pinocchio A human and an android fall in love with a sweet Happily Ever After ending to it Cute storySkin Trade by Myra McEntire15 starsThis entire story made very little sense to me as I read it Creepy musicians who are in a band like to take women home and skin them alive So they can sell the skin UhOne of the guys fall for a woman in the crowdand decides to change his ways She loves him so I guess they live happily ever afterLooks like this one is a retelling of The Robber BridegroomGee can t imagine why Disney hasn t made a movie out of this yetBeauty and the Chad by Sarah Rees Brennan4 starsThis story doesn t take itself seriously at all so it s a really nice addition to this collection Beauty lives in a fairytale like reality and the Beast or The Chad has been sucked into that world from ours Beauty is honorable and tries to take on her father s alleged debt to The Chad by pretending to be a boy Doesn t make senseDon t worry it totally does DudeVery cute Beauty and the BeastThe Pink by Amanda Hocking4 starsThis was yet another story I hadn t heard of but Hocking made it easy to find The Pink is the actual name of the story she retold soyeah Thank youThis one follows the original closely with the exception of what happens to the ueen and King in the endThe gist is that a young prince who has the gift of wishes gets kidnapped by an evil palace cook He wishes for a female BFF and they eventually fall in loveNow all they need to do is get their HEA rightI gave it an extra half star for telling me a new fairytaleSell Out by Jackson Pearce3 starsModern day retelling of Snow White but from the perspective of the prince Prince Charming is broke has a crappy home life and lots of bills However his kiss can raise the dead Somehow he works for an agency that sells services like his to the upper crust He makes his living reviving dead rich folks and their kids Guess it doesn t pay much thoughEnter the evil step motherWill he take her bribe and leave Snow deadEh It was ok and it was definitely a different take on the classicSoSome average stories lots of good ones a few stinkers and a couple that blew me awayThis is one of the better anthologies I ve read and I had a ton of fun reading this sucker I d highly recommend it to fans of this genre Besides I want you to read it and let me know if you guys think I ve got any of these stories wrong I received a digital arc of this book from NetGalley
