One of our most highly-anticipated releases this summer is BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO HATE ME: 13 Tales of Villainy, a collection of short stories edited by Ameriie. In these 13 short stories written by 13 amazing young adult authors, readers get to see the villain's side of every story --- for better or for worse. At the end of each story, 13 BookTubers break down the themes, character arcs and motifs that make each one deliciously devious. In this post, Teen Board Member Reanna H., who reviewed BECAUSE YOU LOVE TO HATE ME, shares the playlist she created of songs to accompany each story.
When Teenreads heads to conventions and book festivals, we're not only looking to see our favorite authors IRL. We're also on the hunt for advance copies of up and coming books, discounted copies of books that are in stores and, of course, book swag! Not familiar with the term? Book swag refers to any extra items you might receive with a book that helps promote the book, author or publisher. In this post, Teen Board member Wren L. tells us all about some of her favorite book swag items and why she prefers some over others.
