No fairy tale will ever seem quite the same again!

Villains, the deliciously wicked. We love to hate them and they hate to be loved, if only because being hated frees them from having to be good.
I read this book solely because of Victoria Schwab, even postponing my weekly watch of one of the greatest shows, The Bachelorette, to read...

Official rating is 3.75 out of 5 stars. The author's stories themselves were enjoyable, but overall not as evil as I hoped, though I did appreciate seeing the varied versions of what a "villain" could be.

I was looking forward to this for a long time. Marissa Meyer, Victoria Schwab and Adam Silvera combined in one single book? Heaven on earth.
To be fair, I didn't read every single page of this short story collection. I read most short stories (Meyer, Silvera, Schwab, Pon, Dennard, Yoon) but I coul...

"Villains take the risks our heroes can’t afford to take and make the choices our heroes are too afraid to make. They live in the Grey, and I, for one, love that sliver of space between light and dark, where things tend to be more interesting, people are more complex, and it’s harder to draw cle...
