Recent New Release: Grim (Harlequin Teen) edited by Christine Johnson

Somehow I missed this one but learned about it yesterday when I had the opportunity to request a review copy. It missed all of my fairy tale related book release searching. Keywords didn't work so well for this one!

Grim (Harlequin Teen) edited by Christine Johnson was released in February. I'll write more when I learn more but I thought I would share this today as my general announcement of a book release. There was even a blog tour promotion. Fairy tale related blog tours should consider inviting blogs like SurLaLune, Once Upon a Blog and Tales of Faerie into the mix. We have a very targeted audience, n'est-ce pas? An audience that would buy this book pretty naturally but may not follow these authors.

Book description:

Inspired by classic fairy tales, but with a dark and sinister twist, Grim contains short stories from some of the best voices in young adult literature today.
