My Shelf Monday: The Complete


Publisher: Sweetwater Press


For almost two centuries, the stories of magic and myth gathered by the Brothers Grimm have been part of the way children—and adults—learn about the vagaries of the real world. Cinderella, Rapunzel, Snow-White, Hänsel and Gretel, Little Red-Cap (a.k.a. Little Red Riding Hood), and Briar-Rose (a.k.a. Sleeping Beauty) are only a few of more than 200 enchanting characters included here. Lyrically translated and beautifully illustrated, the tales are presented just as Jacob and Wilhelm Grimm originally set them down: bold, primal, just frightening enough, and endlessly engaging.

Where did I get it from?

I’m pretty sure I bought this at a Book-A-Million while on vacation in the US.

Why did I get it?

I thought the edition was pretty and I’ve always wanted to read the Brothers Grimm’s fairytales

Have I read it?

Yes ||| No

Why haven’t I read it?

I started reading it a couple of years ago, but there were other books that I was itching to read so I put it down. I figure it’s the kind of book that I’ll have to read a few short stories from at a time.

Where is it on my TBR?

Nearer to the bottom – at this point it’s more a collector’s item, than anything.

My Shelf Monday is a weekly post on my blog in which I discuss one of the books/series that I own. It’s a way to catalogue my book collection, and it also acts as a slow, miniature tour of my shelves.

Thanks for reading!
