Author: Ameriie (Editor)

Series: N/A

Rating:

Five Stars

Leave it to the heroes to save the world—villains just want to rule the world.

In this unique YA anthology, thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains’ points of view.

These fractured, unconventional spins on classics like “Medusa,” Sherlock Holmes, and “Jack and the Beanstalk” provide a behind-the-curtain look at villains’ acts of vengeance, defiance, and rage—and the pain, heartbreak, and sorrow that spurned them on. No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Featuring writing from…

Authors: Renee Ahdieh, Ameriie, Soman Chainani, Susan Dennard, Sarah Enni, Marissa Meyer, Cindy Pon, Victoria Schwab, Samantha Shannon, Adam Silvera, Andrew Smith, April Genevieve Tucholke, and Nicola Yoon

BookTubers: Benjamin Alderson (Benjaminoftomes), Sasha Alsberg (abookutopia), Whitney Atkinson (WhittyNovels), Tina Burke (ChristinaReadsYA blog and TheLushables), Catriona Feeney (LittleBookOwl), Jesse George (JessetheReader), Zoë Herdt (readbyzoe), Samantha Lane (Thoughts on Tomes), Sophia Lee (thebookbasement), Raeleen Lemay (padfootandprongs07), Regan Perusse (PeruseProject), Christine Riccio (polandbananasBOOKS), and Steph Sinclair & Kat Kennedy (Cuddlebuggery blog and channel).

The Candy Book Tag

I’ve said it before and I’ll say it again, I love taking part in food tags. They always make me so hungry and this one was no exception. I almost needed a pile of candy next to me to snack on as I answered these questions. I was tagged by Michelle at Book Adventures. Thanks so much for the tag Michelle, I had a lot of fun with this one so I hope you enjoy reading my answers just as much.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Added to my TBR List Last Year; Five I Will be Reading and Five I Won’t be Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books from X Genre That I’ve Recently Added to my TBR List.

I gave this week’s theme a little bit of a twist, and instead I went for Top Ten Books I Added to my TBR List Last Year; Five I Will be Reading and Five I Won’t be Reading. I’ll admit I’m terrible when it comes to keeping track of the books on my to-read list. Then again that’s what comes of having quarter of my TBR list on one Goodreads account, quarter on another Goodreads account, and half in my head.

Fall Activities Book Tag

Don’t worry, I am working my way through my queue of tags and awards I still need to complete. However, as this is a Fall activities book tag it made sense to post it now rather than in Spring/Summer after I’ve gotten through all the tags before it in my queue. I’ve been seeing this one around WordPress a fair bit at the moment, so obviously I was thrilled to be able to take part.

Although it does seem to me this is more of an American tag than English one. I’ve never been apple picking or to a corn maze, and we’re not big over here on carving pumpkins. Still it was great fun to be able to take part in this. I was tagged by Lauren at Lauren’s Page Turners. Thank you so much for the tag Lauren; everyone else should definitely check out her original post and while you’re there her blog as well.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books I Want to Read Before the End of the Year

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is Top Ten Books I’ve Added To My TBR List Lately.

Instead, however, mainly because my to-read list is a mess, I decided to feature the books I want to read before the end of the year. With less than two months left I’m not sure I’ll get around to all of these but I can at least make a decent start. Besides if I don’t manage to get through all of them before the end of 2016 then they’ll be the very first books on my TBR list for 2017.

Top Ten Tuesday: Top Ten Books that are Perfect Reads for Halloween

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week there is a new topic for bloggers to choose and list their top ten. This week’s theme is a Halloween freebie, so I picked Top Ten Books that are Perfect Reads for Halloween.

Halloween have never been a big deal in England. I was eighteen the first time I went trick-or-treating, and it was babysitting my friends little cousins, in fact the only part of Halloween I get excited for are The Simpson Treehouse of horror episodes and the Brooklyn Nine-Nine Halloween Heist episodes. However I love reading and with Halloween coming up, and with this week’s TTT topic being a Halloween themed free-for-all, I decided to showcase some of the best creepy and dark books I’ve read so far as well as a few still on my to-read list.
