Book Beginnings

30 Nov




Book Beginnings on Friday is now hosted by Rose City Reader.  Don’t dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

dark and grimm  From A Tale Dark & Grimm by Adam Gidwitz

“Once upon a time, fairy tales were awesome. I know, I know.  You don’t believe me. I don’t blame you.  A little while ago, I wouldn’t have believed it myself.  Little girls in red caps skipping around the forest? Awesome? I don’t think so. 

But then I started to read them. The real, Grimm ones.  Very few little girls in red caps in those.

Well, there’s one.  But she gets eaten.”

    I’ve never read the REAL Grimm’s fairy tales, but I’ve heard they’re much darker than the Disney-ized versions we’ve become accustomed to. I think I’d like this book!
    My Book Beginnings / Friday 56 post is from TANGLED ASHES.
