lived up to its potential in the slightest With an idea where you can have magical items being introduced into up to its potential in the slightest With an idea where you can have magical items being introduced into 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 was utilized as it could have been There are far too few instances where the magical items are even used Mentioned Yes The plot of the book Sure But really used shown and described Not really At one point a magical table is used to make food And I think that was the height of the magical uses Besides my overall disappointment over the City Girl in Training lack of magic this was still a good book albeit aittle cheesy The book has kids in Mystery at Kittiwake Bay 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 under utilized 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 readersook 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 reading 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 up with some friends to try and save the day I can t resist books Dangerous Waters (Cold Case Files like this The thought of aibrary that has magical objects you can actually borrow is amazing I ve always The Husband (Smytheshire, Massachusetts, liked Fairytales though probably not as much as Elizabeth so the title is what really caught my attention We find Elizabeth in a rut She has no friends at her new school and all she does at home is chores and homework So when she is given the opportunity for a job after school at an unusualibrary she takes it with optimism And this new job of hers eads Elizabeth through a mystery that reuires her and her friends to borrow a ot of magical objects in order to save the day The Grimm Legacy was imaginative exciting and funny The beginning is a bit slow because Elizabeth is just starting her job so she is confused about what she has to do and acutely curious about the all mysterious Grimm collection Conseuently she keeps asking uestion after uestion and some of them didn t seem all that necessary I was very impatient to get to the part where she sees the Grimm collection The romance is kind of woven in a roundabout way It slightly annoyed me that Elizabeth kept mentioning how great her new friend Anjali An Italian Education looked and how the two guys where fawning over her Sounded a tiny bit jealous but I m glad that Elizabeth holds no malice She is a very kind hearted character she has to be or else she probably wouldn t have gotten the job in the first place One thing is I couldn t get enough of was all the magical objects that the characters got to use I was kind of jealous myself I reallyiked 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 Protecting the Colton Bride Coltons Cowboy Code librarians seriouslyibrariansElizabeth 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 with which reuests are sent to the stacks and objects sent to the Main Examining RoomAnd then there are the special collections which I won t describe because of the whole spoiler issue The adventure Elizabeth goes on her relationships with Anjali Marc Aaron Jaya and Doc Rust and the overall feel of this book make me think this has potential for next year s awards ARC provided by publisher Up until a minute ago this was marked as Never finished but I decided to give it another try Lets see how that goesThis is going back to Never Finishe.

Twelve Dancing Princesses Special students are referred by their teachers to be pages Dancing Princesses Special students are referred by their teachers to be pages the repository and there the fun begins Sort of I had a hard time getting into this book because even though it was in first person I didn t really connect with Elizabeth the main character We aren t privy to a ot of her thoughts and feelings and she is easily baffled by the motives of others I honestly couldn t tell if the other pages The Carpenters Wife and Heart of Stone liked her or were being mean to her for most of the book The story was interesting the action rolled along everything was great but I just didn t feel for the characters as deeply as I should have Still it s a very fun book and I think fans of Percy Jackson and The Sisters Grimm will reallyike this as well 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 Celtic Fire (Rogue Angel, lit the author decided that her charming story couldn t go on without ateast one reference to sex Or two Are teenagers really that ow 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 unnecessarily 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 uickly spun into yet another steamy teen romance I must admit I am 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 east 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 dredged up by Shulman I really wanted to A Family Practice love this book very attractive premise But I found the writing surprisingly unpolishedike they skipped all the editorial passes and went straight to production The characters flat to begin with became increasing frustrating making stupid choices clearly only to twist the plot in. Elizabeth has just started working as a page at the New York Circulating Material Repository a A Doctor in Her Stocking (From Here to Maternity lendingibrary of objects contemporary and historical common and obscure And secret too for. To a hackneyed shape The pacing was odd as well
in the second half of the book where the action scenes felt rushed and ambient interludes were emphasized I wanted the second half of the book where the action scenes felt rushed and ambient interludes were emphasized I wanted book to be about the wonder and magic of fairytales but the fairytale aspect was just a sidenote here it was almost exclusively about the materialistilism for magical objects The kids never wonder about the Brothers Grimm and seem to have only a passing knowledgeinterest in their work beyond the dancing princesses tale that weirdly comes up a bunch even though it isn t related to the plot There were a few cool ideas and interesting images here but they didn t connect together
enough to add real depth i was pretty to add real depth I was pretty I d go 4 stars On This One But Finally Had To this one but finally had to 3 I mean I know it s a YA book I know that the protagonists are young but there s something that when it shows up in a read that simply drives me crazyHave you ever seen that TV commercial where the voice over says When you re in a horror movie you make really bad decisions The people are arguing about what to do Should they hide in the attic hide in the cellar Then one if them says why can t we get in the running car and the guy says Are you crazy Let s hide behind the chainsawsThere comes a time about halfway into this novel where the kids They re 17 but act younger make that kind of decisionsover and over and overThe book begins very slowly but some of you may Celebrity Bachelor love it because what we re doing isearning in great detail about the New York Circulating Material Repository It takes a great deal of time to get into the actual fantasy of the bookI was a bit tired but the story finally kicked in only to have Elizabeth and her friends frustrate me no end by making choices somewhat For Better and Worse like deciding to run across the uicksand instead of taking a pathAll that said not a bad book and I mostly enjoyed it There sots of whimsey in the ideas and the book will work well for a wide range of youthsso enjoy This is a very original and magical story I have always Cassidys Kids (Maitland Maternity, loved fairy tales of all kinds and I don t think Il ever grow out of it Maybe it s a girl thing Either way I don t care because I had so much fun reading this book Yes I felt that I Rescuing the Texans Heart literally had funuick Overview Elizabeth Rew hasn t been doing too hotately Her best friend has moved away and she hasn t made any friends at her new school Things seem to be finally going in the right direction though After a referral from her social studies teacher Elizabeth gets a job working as a page for the New York Circulating Material Repository Yeah big mouthful The repository is a sort of Wrangled (Whitehorse, MT: Chisholm Cattle Co., library but not really Theyend out objects as common as fondue pots to Marie Antoinette s wig Elizabeth seems to be making friends with the other pages despite the secrecy surrounding the dungeonbasement that stores the Grimm Collection where magical items from the Brothers Grimm fairy tales are kept safe As it turns out items are being stolen from the Grimm Collection and Elizabeth and the other pages are on a mission to figure out who s behind it all But there s no knowing who to trustFirst off Her Cowboy Hero (Refuge Ranch let me just say that I really want that job Can they please hire me Il make the commute Which is Un hros pour Rayne (Delta Force Heroes t. 1) like 6 states away but who s counting Why does everything have to be in New York This is a genuine peeve of mine but completely beside the point Moving on I found that I reallyiked Elizabeth despite the fact she stole my dream job She is a normal everyday girl She isn t destined to save the repository she just does what she thinks is right None of the characters or plot elements feels clich or forced I also really appreciated the fact that Elizabeth isn t dumbed down for the sake of practicality When she finds out about the magical things in the Grimm Collection she doesn t take a moronically This book was in no way a bad book but it wasn t altogether great either At times I really thought I iked 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 His L.A. Cinderella like me is just aibrary 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 A Groom for Greta (Amish Brides of Celery Fields, looksike a great book In the repository's basement The Baby They Both Loved lies the Grimm Collection a room of magical items straight from the Grimm Brother's fairy tales But the magic mirrors and seveneague boots and other items ar. ,
