Because you love to hate me

I really do not know what to say about Because you love to hate me, specifically.

Well, you know how it is with books that have short stories, some you like, some you don’t, some are okay which makes your relationship with the book sour and sweet both.

I had the similar kind of relationship with Because you love to hate me.

This review wouldn’t be as detailed one and I wouldn’t be talking about all the stories here because

  • They are short stories, giving synopsis will ruin the whole experience for you
  • 13 stories and essays along with it, nobody got time to read all about it, right?
  • I don’t feel like talking about this book as much. xD I mean did like some stories but it took me over a month to make me go through the whole thing- I have realized one thing for sure, short stories aren’t my thing.


For people who don’t know about Because you love to hate me.

Because you love to hate me is a collection of thirteen short stories by thirteen acclaimed, bestselling authors team up who have teamed up with thirteen influential BookTubers to reimagine fairy tales from the oft-misunderstood villains’ points of view. – Yep, sounds interesting, also you get to read something from your favorite booktubers.

My thoughts.

Not much to say, only that it is not one of those books you would want to buy for your personal collection but borrow from the library, read once, enjoy it and give it back, having said that, I would also like to say the book wasn’t any less than heaven, like best of the authors came together, and you have the best collections of stories. I even read some authors for the first time and have decided on to read more of their work, such asĀ Soman Chainani & Susan Dennard.

To be fair, I didn’t read every single page of this short story collection and by that I mean the booktubers essays. I only went through Christine’s because

  • Favourite
  • I found her’s to be actually really interesting, others were just so boring.

Anyway, the stories in there are unique & well written but somehow this is what I felt personally- the stories were forced to meet the challenge and take that twist which could have been avoided.

My favorite story from the book was fromĀ Jack by Ameriie.

Rating and recommendation

3/5 stars

I would recommend this to people who highly enjoy short stories and anthologies. Also to the biggest fans of the authors and the booktubers involved in this book.
