The Grimrose Girls Official Trailer

10 · 21 · 21

Ah, I love a good fairytale retelling. The darker the retelling, the better the tale for this girl! 😈✨📚

Grimrose Girls by Laura Pohl has everything I love in a twisted YA fairytale. I’ve been longing for a magical dark academia project for years now, so when this opportunity landed in my lucky lap, I couldn’t wait to immerse myself in it.

This is a uniquely feminist, thoroughly magical, and literally grim fairytale with fantastic BIPOC and LGBTQA representation. I plan on reading it through the cozy season – especially when my Midwestern world turns into a snowglobe!

HUGE shout-out to Madison K. and FIREreads for bringing me another #DreamProject. 🥰

See below for more about this book… I hope you love the video!

About the Book

The Grimrose Girls by Laura Pohl

The Grimrose Girls by Laura Pohl:

Four troubled friends,
One murdered girl…
and a dark fate that may leave them all doomed.

Once Upon a Time meets Pretty Little Liars in this queer, dark academia story about four reimagined fairy tale heroines who must uncover their ancient curses before it’s too late.

After the mysterious death of their best friend, Ella, Yuki, and Rory are the talk of their elite school, Grimrose Académie. The police ruled Ariane’s death as a suicide, but the trio are determined to find out what really happened.

When Nani Eszes arrives as their newest roommate, it sets into motion a series of events that no one could have predicted. As the girls retrace their friend’s final days, they discover a dark secret about Grimrose―Ariane wasn’t the first dead girl.

They soon learn that all the past murders are connected to ancient fairytale curses…and that their own fates are tied to the stories, dooming the girls to brutal and gruesome endings unless they can break the cycle for good.
