Another Recommendation: The Grimm Diaries -

I know that I've done quite a few recommendations in the last two months but this ones awesome and important. It's a book, well a set of books. So, it's called the Grimm Diaries by Cameron Jace, right now there is only some teaser prequels out but they're really cool. They're written like it's one of the characters writing a diary entry, like the first one is The Queen Of Sorrow's and then there's ones from Prince Charming and Little Red Riding Hood and Beauty from Beauty and the Beast and others, my point is that they're awesome. They're self published and only available on the kindle through amazon, and be warned that there is quite a few mis-spellings and grammar errors since it is self-published (But if you read my blog you should be use to that), as long as you can get over that they're really cool. They're definitely darker than like Disney versions but not all that bad. Also its a completely original concept. At first I was worried that it would be a rip off of Once upon A Time (the show) but its really a completely different take on it all. All of the ones I've read (which is all the ones out right now) are amazing, it's a really cool take on the fairy tales and everything. Honestly I suck at reviewing things I like so you should just go look at them for yourself. The first of the prequels is called Snow White, Blood Red and it's from the Queen of Sorrow's (The evil queen from Snow White) view. The first full book is supposed to be out latter this year I think, it keeps getting delayed for editing and stuff, but it's gonna be called Snow White Sorrow. So, now I shall list all the ones out right now and say which are my favorites -

  1. Snow White, Blood Red
  2. Ashes to Ashes, Cinder to Cinder
  3. Beauty Never Dies
  4. Ladle Rat Rotten Hut
  5. Mary Mary Quite Contrary 
  6. Blood Apples
  7. Once Beauty Twice Beast
  8. Moon & Madly
  9. Rumpelstein 
  10. Jawigi
  11. Happy Valentines Slay
Now my Favorite of the prequels are (Drum roll please) Once Beauty Twice Beast, Moon & Madly, Happy Valentines Slay and Ladle Rat Rotten Hut. And my Favorite characters are Jack, Beast, Ladle Rat, Wolfy and Moongirl. So, now you should go and read them so you know what I'm talking about, OK?

One more thing, is I've noticed that a lot of people are complaining that the blurb for Snow White Sorrow  sounds too much like Anna Dresses In Blood or the cover looks too much like mortal instruments, well I say they suck. No seriously I love Anna Dressed In Blood, but I unlike all of the people complaining, I have actually read the prequels and know that the books themselves are nothing like Anna Dressed In Blood or The Mortal Instruments, so those unspeakable people can just shove it. My point here being that it seems to me like the book is going to be a lot more than the blurb, meaning that the blurb may suck but I don't think the book will.

Snow White Sorrow (The Grimm Diaries, #1)
