Ing this book or not definitely read it You won t hate it and it is a good read Just don t expect from the book than it is A book about an average girl who is working for a repository with magical items that has recently had thefts and she teams p with some friends to try and save the day There is something rather grand about finding a new good book to read And it is always disappointing to discover that the new good book isn t all that good The Grimm Legacy by Polly Shulman was wonderfully writen for the most part The dialogue was weak in a few areas and the plot was too slow in some spots and too fast in others but these issues were easily forgotten as I continued reading But as is inevitable in modern teen lit the author decided that her charming story couldn t go on without at least one reference to sex Or two Are teenagers really that low Can we truly not read anything without needing a titillating reference to birds and bees Are we as brainless as that Why can we not enjoy a beautifully crafted innocent exciting story without some sort of adult theme dragged in nnecessarily We deserve credit I would have sincerely enjoyed this book if the author had not decided randomly shock her audience with risue images The charm of her modern fairy tale ickly spun into yet another steamy teen romance I must admit I am I Do, Two uite frustrated with the whole Young Adult genre in general having condescending adults shove tripe down my throat does not appeal to me in the least Would I write this book off as a failure No The author truly has talent and her story in general was enjoyable Unfortunately she saw fit to include two or three scenes which completely drew attention away from the plot and toward a relationship that was infatuation than true romance It would have merited a four or five star rating from me if not for this tiresome cliche plot device being yet again dredgedp by Shulman I really liked Enthusiasm and was so pleased to get an ARC of Ms Shulman s next book It exceeded my expectations there s humor some romance fairy tales and folklore Acts of Bravery and best of all librarians seriously librariansElizabeth is a semi Cinderella wicked stepsisters are in college and they re really annoying than wicked doing chores and trying to fit in at her new school When the opportunity arises for her to work as a page at the New York Circulating Material Repository she takes it and that s when the adventures begin Forget the magical aura of some of the objects this is a pretty neat place to work filled with pneumatic tubes. In the repository's basement lies the Grimm Collection a room of magical items straight from the Grimm Brother's fairy tales But the magic mirrors and seven league boots and other items ar.

This book was in no way a bad book but it wasn t altogether great either At times I really thought I liked it and then there were others when it fell to okay Overall I would give it about a 27 stars because at times I was intriguedIf I had to give this book a one word description I would say cheesy I could think of others as well but right now cheesy comes to mind The book is about a girl named Elizabeth who writes a paper over the Brothers Grimm and is recommended a job at a rather special repository which if you don t know what that is like me is just a library for objects where people can check things out Only this repository is special for it has magical objects that can be borrowed Now when I first saw the pretty amazing cover and read the title The Grimm Legacy I was hooked immediately I know it s going to be about magic and it just looks like a great book The only problem is I don t think the book lived She Weeps Each Time Youre Born up to its potential in the slightest With an idea where you can have magical items being introduced into the real world fairy tales coming alive or any number of strange occurences the plot of this book is simply that some of the objects are going missing And the number one suspect is a giant bird Yeah I expected this to be a magical story full of things you expect in fantasy but instead I was given a book about completely ordinary things with a tiny amount of magic being a part of it I just don t feel that the magical aspect of this book wastilized as it could have been There are far too few instances where the magical items are even Warheart (Sword of Truth, used Mentioned Yes The plot of the book Sure But reallysed shown and described Not really At one point a magical table is the gibson used to make food And I think that was the height of the magicalses Besides my overall disappointment over the lack of magic this was still a good book albeit a little cheesy The book has kids in love with each other jealousy betrayal and such that are in many books I don t want to say the book was bad but I can t completely say it was great It was just Bad Things in the Night undertilized If that makes any sense I think this book had amazing potential and instead it went down a conventional path that really could have been told without magic completely with only a few minor changes But there still wasnt a moment where I wanted to completely stop reading because it wasn t good enough I never got to the I can t put this down moment we all as readers look for in a book but it was a good book that simply made me feel that it could have been so much If you are considering read. Elizabeth has just started working as a page at the New York Circulating Material Repository a lending library of objects contemporary and historical common and obscure And secret too for.
