Waiting on Wednesday #44: Because You Love to Hate Me by Ameriie

Hello everyone! "Waiting On" Wednesday is a weekly event, that is hosted by Breaking the Spine and the purpose of this event is that we spotlight upcoming releases of books that we are excited for!  This will also tie into Wishful Ending's Can't Wait Wednesday post!

This week's pre-publication "can't-wait-to-read" selection is:

Title:  Because You Love to Hate Me
Author:  Ameriie
Expected Publication Date:  July 11th, 2017

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: Renée 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).

  3. I was so mad I didn't get this one at BEA/BookCon *sad face*. There are so many great authors involved. It has the potential to be epic.

  4. Awesome pick! I haven't seen this one, but I loved My True Love Gave to Me, which was a bunch of holiday short stories by YA authors. I will definitely add this to my TBR list. Thanks for sharing!! I hope you enjoy it :)

  5. New one for me, hope you wind up loving it!!

  6. This cover and title are intriguing. I do enjoy anthologies.

  7. I remember when Amerie first announced this on her Booktube channel. I've loved her for years as a singer and am anxious to see how she does with a book. I know she is an avid reader and her channel is always a lot of fun to watch. Great choice and beautiful cover.

  8. I don't like villains at all, so this is, regretfully, not one I will read.... In fact, I really enjoy seeing them defeated!! But I LOVE that cover!!

    Hope you enjoy this one!

    Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my CWW post!! <3 :)
