WAITING ON” WEDNESDAY IS A WEEKLY EVENT, HOSTED BY BREAKING THE SPINE, THAT SPOTLIGHTS UPCOMING RELEASES THAT WE’RE EAGERLY ANTICIPATING.
Written by: Various Authors
Release Date: July 11th, 2017
This unique YA anthology presents classic and original fairy tales from the villain’s point of view. The book’s unconventional structure–thirteen of the most influential BookTubers on YouTube join forces (writing-prompt style) with thirteen acclaimed and bestselling authors–gives these mysterious, oft-misunderstood individuals characters a chance to tell their stories, their way.
Like Maleficent or Wicked, these are stories of vengeance, of defiance, of rage. They are stories of pain, of heartbreak, of sorrow. But don’t expect a circle of hands. Leave it to the heroes to help the world; villains just want to rule the world. We love to hate them and they hate to be loved, if only because being hated frees them from having to be good.
Contributing authors include bestselling and buzzy names Renée Ahdieh, Soman Chainani, Susan Dennard, Sarah Enni, Marissa Meyer, Cindy Pon, Victoria Schwab, Samantha Shannon, Adam Silvera, Andrew Smith, April Genevieve Tucholke, and Nicola Yoon, with a foreword and a story from anthology editor Ameriie.
First of all, can we please take a look at the list of authors contributing to this anthology? Okay. Now lets look at the BookTubers…yeah. Okay. YOU SEE WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT? I honestly don’t know what could go wrong with this anthology. Some of my favorite authors (and authors I’ve been wanting to read for a while) have collaborated for this dark and mysterious yet intriguing collection of short stories and I’m so ready for it. I’m particularly excited to read Renée‘s story, Victoria’s story, Samantha’s story and Nicola’s story! How about you? Are you looking forward to this anthology? 🙂
