Grim Lovelies
Grim Lovelies | Megan Shepherd
The first in a young adult fantasy duology by New York Times bestselling author Megan Shepherd, Grim Lovelies is set in modern-day Paris where a society of magic handlers manipulate the world around them. But this centuries-old system is about to be turned upside down: not by one of the city's powerful magicians, but by a witch's maid.

Eek! Trying to catch up on the #ChillingPhotoChallenge! This is for Day #10 GRIM, and this is one of my favorite Megan Shepherd novels (and it would also make for a wonderful October read!).

Today‘s #colormepretty is #rainbow! I went for an LGBT+ theme for this one.

Grim Lovelies‘ main character might be straight, but there‘s a trans character and a gay character.

Passing I read for a class, but the point is brought up that it could be read as a lesbian awakening. After reading it, I would agree with that point.

Hero I read in high school and it‘s a great book about the struggles of coming out AND being a teenage superhero. 10/10

Ugh I really tried but I'm throwing it in at chapter 28. I'm so so so incredibly bored and not interested and the characters are just dull.

SharonAlger It‘s frustrating when that happens, but at least you gave it a fair shake. 5mo
sparrowssavvy This one had me so excited and I did get through it, but it reallllly slowed down for me 5mo

This was a fast paced and interesting read. Though the magic system didn't seem consistent. The writing was fine but not very vivid descriptions. But it was a fun story with interesting characters.

6/10 💫

This was fun! New and exciting and such a fun take on magic! Sometimes the same old magic ideas bore me but this twist was a lot of fun! The only sad thing is the conclusion doesn‘t come out till September! 😭

Mehso-so

I wonder if my rating would be much different if I was 16. I don‘t know. I won‘t be continuing with the series. Pros: cool world and rules around magic
Cons: insta-love (groan) and most of the characterizations

My friend Unity and I decided to start a book club and by that I mean we both read the same book and then talk about it. January was Grim Lovelies, and I personally enjoyed it. Again, a token, tragic gay who may or may not fall into the “bury your gays” trope (hopefully not!) and a token trans character, and a majority of the characters were cis, het, and white, but I have hopes for this series!

Reminder: post picture later

I loved the concept of this book. It had some great ambience at the beginning which I felt was lacking as the book progressed. However I did really enjoy the tale and will definitely keep reading the series.

Woke up early do take notes for today's Fountain of Youth book club discussion of Grim Lovelies. Megan Shepherd is skyping in! I've loved all of her books, but this is my favorite so far.

Eggbeater I am really sorry to miss this one. I enjoyed the evolution of Anouk's character and wanted to hear what the author had to say about it. 13mo

This was a very fast paced, thrilling read! The world building was so creative and unique, I have not read anything like this before! The writing was beautiful. Anouk was a very interesting character especially at the end. I can‘t wait a whole year for the sequel 😩 But I do highly recommend this book! It‘s a great October read and perfect for introducing urban fantasy to someone who is unfamiliar with that genre. 4.5/5 🌟

I absolutely LOVED this book!! It kicks off a new YA Fantasy set in the #CityOfDreams (#Paris naturally!). Its narrator is a beastie- an animal changed by a witch into a human servant. But Anouk is more than a maid and this fast-paced adventure takes her and her fellow beasties all over the city - encountering other witches and #Goblins too! Such fun!!! #SeptemberDanes #NewHogwartsAdventure

I've been a fan of Megan Shepherd from the beginning and this is my favorite of her books! I know it doesn't come out until October, but all the love for this book with its Beasties, Witches, Goblins and Pretties in modern day Paris. I wish I could skip summer and head right to fall!
