Release Date: July 11, 2017

Genres: Young Adult, Fantasy, Anthologies

My Rating: 4/5 stars ✩✩✩✩


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!

I Think Instagram Deleted My Bookstagram Account 

Hello everyone! I haven’t made a blog post in a while! I have some posts planned out, I just haven’t had the time to type and post them yet. Hopefully you’ll see some new posts by next week!
But today I’m here to talk to you about something really disappointing that happened to me last night. Most of you know that I have an Instagram account where I post bookish photography! I’ve had the account for a little over a year now and it’s what inspired me to start this blog.

Well last night, I was going to get on there and like a few pictures, the usual. But when I click on the Instagram app, a notification pops up that says something like: “You have been logged out of this account, the password might have been changed.” That wasn’t the first time I’ve ever gotten that notification; it usually shows up when Instagram has updated or something. So I try to log back in a few times and it doesn’t work. I then get on one of my other accounts and search my bookstagram username, and it’s gone! I didn’t receive any emails from Instagram about my account being deleted or anything!

I don’t know why this happened, but I would really appreciate it if you could go follow my new account: @fuzzybookworm. It also wouldn’t let me add the word ‘the’ on the front of my username, so I’ll try to add that back later on.
I’m also not the only one this has happened to recently in the bookstagram community, so if you have a bookish Instagram account, or any Instagram account, here are a few tips I’ve seen around today:
