The set up of the story had promise, but then BAM: all of a sudden a bunch of poorly explained but important facts get thrown at the main character and she accepts them with very little argument. When Harry Potter finds out he's a famous boy wizard, it takes up a huge chunk of the book; and for good reason, right? Setting up your story is just as important as the meat.
The substance of the novel centers around poorly developed relationships that don't leave the reader invested in how it turns out. The main character is also supposedly quite smart, but her thought processes and subsequent actions just made me cringe in embarrassment.
For a free kindle book, it was an ok read. Won't be reading any more in the series.
While the main character Mina can be annoying, overall she’s a great heroine, even if she is reluctant about it throughout the book. She’s brave and smart, while she isn’t described as gorgeous, she’s also not described as a lot of girls are as “plain.” She has an intense back story that adds to her dimension.
The other characters in the book, from Nan to Charlie are also well developed and help bring a bit of normalcy to Mina’s “cursed” story.
The plot is pretty fast moving, but lull’s in places. I would find myself zoned out and have to back up the story to hear what happened. The narrator does a great job with the voices and brings the characters, as well as the settings to life.
I really enjoyed the book and look forward to downloading the second one as soon as it is available. I’m looking forward to this twist on the traditional fairy tale, but hope that it’s ends with the traditional happy ending.

Unfortunately, this book is worse than bad, it's bland. It was recommended by a friend. The general idea seemed great, exactly like the usual sort of thing I like to read, but the execution was lacking. I think this had the potential to be so much more interesting.
The characters felt pretty one dimensional, I couldn't really bring myself to care about them one way or another. The plot kind of muddled along, with plot points, exposition, and every single thought/emotion a character had being spoon fed to the reader. It may be teen fiction, but teens aren't stupid. It's fine to show something rather than stating it outright, they can read between the lines. Despite the very straightforward writing style some things still seemed not very well explained, a bit like the author herself didn't really know where she was going with the idea until she got there. Overall, the writing falls a bit flat. It's not bad, it's just not interesting.
To be fair, I only made it about two thirds of the way through the book before I gave up on it, so maybe it finishes off more engaging than it started. Sadly, I'm not curious enough to find out.
The pace was a bit slow at times, and this distracted from the story a lot. Also, the curse was not as central off a theme for this book, than what I would have liked. As there is mention that Mina needs to get through over 200 stories, it is doubtful that she can when she only finishes 2 stories in the first book. The emphasis of Mina’s insecurity and her best friend Nan’s Twitter and iPhone is sometimes too much, and highly unnecessary.
Mina did grow a bit, and the romance in this book did not distract much, but rather added a bit to the story. I was rooting for Mina to fall for Jared, because he challenges her, whereas Brody only wants to protect her and then gets in the way of her destiny.
There were some grammatical errors in this book, however, this did not distract much from the story. The characters were a bit one-dimensional, but the plot made up for that a bit. Also, the most well-known ideas were incorporated into the story, like the sort-of love triangle.
I will want to read the rest of the books since the idea really appealed to my love of fairy tales. Will keep you posted…
Mina is a loser who keeps her head down and her nose out of everything. Until she saves the life of the most popular boy in school. But that single, heroic act does more than attract the attention of her school, it attracts the attention of an old family curse. Because Mina isn't a Grime, she's a Grimm, and the stories they wrote need to be completed if she's ever to live a normal life. She just has to survive them all, first.
This story was enchanting. The high school drama with a twisted fairy tale, and a heroine who is equal parts reluctant and determined, keeps you reading until the last page. Only complaint is that Mina is a little too much back and forth at times. But otherwise, a solid read for teens looking for a bit of fairy tale fantasy in a contemporary setting.
