Goodreads Monday (8/28/17)

Sorry, I have been a little MIA lately, but I have a good excuse! I promise!! Before when I went MIA for a few weeks, it was because I was too exhausted from pregnancy. Well my baby girl decided to come four weeks early, so I have been adjusting to life of motherhood for the first time! =)

Isn’t she adorable? But, I’m a tad bit biased!

Ok, so on to the real post:


Goodreads Monday is a meme hosted by Lauren @Page Turner,  and the idea is to post a book that’s on your TBR pile and show it off. This is a great way to show off books I have not yet managed to read!


This week I have chosen:

thecompletegrimmchronicles

Title: The Complete Grimm Chronicles

Author: Isabella Fontaine & Ken Brosky

Published: April 28th 2015 by Brew City Press

Goodreads Summary:

This is the COMPLETE collection of the award-winning Young Adult adventure series!

200 years ago, the Brothers Grimm unleashed their stories upon the world. With the stroke of a magic pen and a deal with a malevolent force of evil, they forever changed humanity’s fate.

Now the characters of the Grimms’ fairy tales walk among us. With every day that passes, they grow more evil. They are the Corrupted, and only a hero can stop them.

This is the story of Alice Goodenough, the last in a long line of heroes who have bravely given their lives to snuff out the evil force that does not belong in this planet. Her story begins during summer vacation, when she happens upon a magic pen and an invisible rabbit named Br’er who is tasked with teaching her the ways of the hero. With the help of the magic pen, Alice must vanquish the terrible creations of the Brothers Grimm, relying on her dreams to guide her to her next target. Cinderella. Fundevogel. A fisherman. An evil wizard. A trio of dwarves hellbent on controlling the world. But to become a great hero, Alice must give up her old life so that she may protect those she loves most. Otherwise, evil will find her.

And evil will kill her.

This book contains all 12 episodes of the series, as well as the bonus “Lost diaries” of previous heroes and all of the collected Grimm’s Fairy Tales … over 2,000 pages collected in one edition!

Book 1: Prince Charming Must Die!
Book 2: Happily Never After
Book 3: Revenge of the Castle Cats
Book 4: The Orphanage of Doom
Book 5: Blood and Thunder
Book 6: The Order of the Golden Dragon
Book 7: The Giant Slayer
Book 8: Darkness Rising
Book 9: Malevolence
Book 10: The Black Towers
Book 11: A Dance With Death, Part One
Book 12: A Dance With Death, Part Two

This was an impulse buy on Amazon, because it was only $0.99. Normally, I am skeptical about books that low on Amazon, especially with authors I have never heard of before. But, Goodreads has some pretty good reviews on it so I figured I would give it a try, and if anything I would only be out a dollar.

This book caught my eye because it was a retake on the Grimms’ fairytales we all know and love. I bought this book yesterday, so it is currently sitting in my Kindle TBR pile to be picked up in the very near future.

What is on your TBR shelf this week?
