Because You Love To Hate Me by Various Authors

Overall, I enjoyed reading this anthology. I decided to read one a day and this made the experience really fun, so I would definitely recommend reading it that way. This book is a collection of short stories by various young adult authors. There is commentary at the end of each story by a BookTuber that gave the author a prompt. The prompts all have something to do with villains.

She arrives at his house and is confronted by the impact that his dead wife has had on the employees of the Manderley mansion.
