I like to read anything that tells a good story, duh ;) Genre doesn't really matter much but I tend to read dark fiction and fantasy the most. I skip chick lit and romance novels with a few exceptions for the extraordinary.
My ratings system:
5 stars - ADORED; plan to read over and over and over.
4 stars - ENJOYED; will likely read once or twice more.
3 stars - LIKED; may or may not read again ... someday.
2 stars - MEH; no plans to read again.
1 stars - I didn't enjoy the story and was lucky to finish.
0 stars - I couldn't or wouldn't finish for reasons that may or may not be listed in the review box.
Rating: 3 of 5
The Unusual Suspects was another entertaining entry in the Sisters Grimm series; however, it's unlikely I will read any further than Book Two. I enjoyed the humor and the mash-up of different fairy tales. But it's all too simple for my current tastes. Even the cliffhanger ending just wasn't enough to grab my interest.
The Sisters Grimm would be a great fit for kids around 8-14 *or* people wanting to read aloud to kids those ages.

Note to self: Rumpelstiltskin and his children were thought-provoking ideas. Beauty and the Beast, the Frog Prince and Princess, and Little Miss Muffet and the spider had babies, were too poor to support them, and sold them to Rumpel (who is a 3' tall, troll-like creature). Why does he want first born kids so bad? He feeds off their emotions.
