HANDS down, one of the best books I’ve ever read. This books gives you an insight of how your classic stories would be if the villain was the protagonist. After all, no one is ever the villain of their own story. My favourites were The Sea Witch (but I might be biased because MARISSA MEYER), Death Knell- Victoria Schwab and Sera by Nicola Yoon. I won’t spoil anything but let me just say, if you’re a person who likes backstories and ever find yourself rooting for the Villain, this is definitely the book for you!

I skipped around to some of the stories that caught my attention, so here's what I read:
"The Sea Witch" by Marissa Meyer
"Gwen and Art and Lance" by Soman Gwen Chainani
"Shirley and Jim" by Susan Dennard

What a waste of my life. Don't bother with this book. There is maybe one, two good stories out of here but even those are hardly worth it. It's a shame because I like these authors and I like these booktubers and while this may be have been a good idea, the execution was poor.

Just, don't pick it up. There are better things to read.
