A unique collection of short stories edited by Grammy-nominated YouTube star Ameriie featuring stories from some of the biggest names both in YA publishing and on YouTube. Because You Love to Hate Me pairs one booktuber with one author to write stories from the point of view of famous villains. With contributions from New York Times bestselling authors and booktubers with a collective reach of more than a million subscribers, this will be a must-have collection for YA readers.

The Lovereading Review will follow.

“Readers today are more interactive with authors and one another than ever,” says Ameriie, who dreamed up this project and will contribute a story and foreword as well as edit the anthology. “The booktube community on YouTube has exploded in the last two years, energizing hundreds of thousands of readers around the world, the majority of whom read YA.”

Synopsis

Because You Love to Hate Me 13 Tales of Villainy by Ameriie

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!
