If I had to set a theme for this box it would be “VILLAINS”. I guess it’s pretty obvious which July release I’ve picked for this month’s bookish dream crate!
Because You Love to Hate Me: 13 Tales of Villainy is one of my most anticipated release of 2017. It’s been on my TBR for a year! This anthology is written by thirteen YA authors with prompts created by booktubers. I guess one of the reasons why I want to read this book so bad is because I really love the authors and booktubers who took part in it.
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!

Disney villains are now a hit! It’d be a highlight to have a random villain tsum tsum inside this box!

Speaking of villains, how can we not mention Loki?

I’d also include a plastic white rose to pay tribute to President Snow from The Hunger Games.
And these pinback buttons. It matches the quote, “The villain is the hero of her own story”.
