Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

Grim by Various Authors
Release Date: February 25th, 2014 by Harlequin Teen

S u m m a r y :

Step into a world of dark and twisted fairy tales, with stories by Julie Kagawa, Amanda Hocking and more...

In the days when fairy tales were first spun, they weren’t the sweet and cheerful stories we tell today. Back then, fairy tales were terrifying. They were a warning to the listener to stay out of the night, to keep away from the mystical and ignore the mysterious. Prepare to open a treasure box of the unusual and the macabre.

Grim features some of today’s best young adult authors, sharing their own, unique retellings of classic fairy tales from around the world. These talented writers, many of them New York Times bestsellers or award-winners, put their own spin on these magical worlds.

Reason for waiting:
If you've been here awhile you would know how much I love fairytales and how much I love fairytale retellings. Guys, these amazing YA authors are taking fairytales and twisting them. I mean, I don't think I have to explain myself any further!

What are you waiting for this week?


  1. This does sound great! I almost made it my WoW. I love fairytale retellings as well.

    1. Btw, I absolutely LOVE your blog design!! The Wizard of Oz is so awesome!! Have you heard of the book Dorothy Must Die? It comes out next month I believe, and it sounds sooo good! I think you'd like the sound of it! :)

    2. @Becca --- Thank you! I'm OBSESSED with Wizard of Oz! I heard of Dorothy Must Die, I tried reading the prequel last year and didn't manage to finish it... I should do that soon lol! I'm looking forward to Dorothy Must Die, there should be more Wizard of Oz retellings :P

  4. Fairy tales are awesome! I have an advanced copy of this but I probably won't be able to get to it before release. I'm really excited to read it though! Hope you love it.

  5. I've been seeing this one around lately. It sounds like it would be a good rainy/stormy night read. Nice pick! Thanks for stopping by my WoW.

  6. I have come across this major project and I also love re-tellings so you definitely don't need to sell this one to me. ^__^

    Thanks for sharing and for dropping by My WoW post :)
