Dark, creepy, mysterious retellings of favorite retellings that are beyond our understand of what amazing really is..

Collection of short stories from famous authors, 
Grim is the exactly unique read that brings every single bookworm into 2014. It's new, fresh, and even though it's fairytales - it brings a whole new meaning of stories that we heard many times and all love. 

I would say many of them are my favorites but one that really captured my eye was Light It Up. An alternative version of Hansen & Greta story set in modern days. In only 20 short pages you get familiar with their badass personalities, relationship with their "B*tch* step-mother, and experence the action. 

Grim is the perfect Anthology that's written by geniuses - best of the best! 5 Stars
