Like a lot of other girls, I grew up being fascinated with fairy tales. I remember perfecting the sob-and-gracefully-fall maneuver because that’s how all the Disney Princesses would act when they get upset.
On the other hand, I have always been a fan of morbid, ghastly stories. The seven-year-old me would hand my older sister a crime book and tell her to read me the stories as if they were simply about rainbows and unicorns and not serial killers and decapitation.
Don’t worry, I grew up to be absolutely normal.
So when I turned old enough to discover Brothers Grimm, I was thrilled! All the fairy tale characters I learned to love now with its true, twisted endings!
I’m not a good book reviewer so I’m not even going to attempt to do it. Just sharing here these two volumes of The Brothers Grimm Fairy Tales, which I have been enjoying and which you definitely would too if you want to know what ever-after really are.
You can get them at Fully Booked.
