    He's bobbing his head in time to music playing from headphones, and there's a book in his hands. I peer at it.Nicholas Sparks. Doug really might be evil, then. So, huh, here's the thing: I don't think I actually expected this to be good. Yeah, yeah, I posted excited Buffy gifs, and I tweeted Kiersten White like the crazed fangirl I am. But this is Buffy you're messing with here. Buffy truly helped me survive at some of the darkest times of my lif...

    Thank you Edelweiss and Simon Pulse for sending a review copy in exchange for an honest reviewActual Rating: ★★★.5 “Being chosen is easy. Making choices will break your heart.” When I found out this was going to be a think I squealed! I knew I had to add this to my TBR. And Simon and Schuster blessed me a few months ago with an ARC.I took a bit long to finish this book but there is no denying that I was really enjoying it. It reminded m...

    Slayer by Kiersten White is the first book in the new young adult paranormal fantasy Slayer series. This series is a spin off and takes place in the same world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer after Buffy’s time when a new Slayer is chosen as she begins to come into her powers.Nina and Artemis are twin sisters that have grown up in the Watcher’s Academy and couldn’t be more different from one another. Artemis has always been the strong and domin...

    *I received a copy from Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review*"When all else ends, when hope perished alongside wonder, her darkness shall rise and all shall be devoured."Eh, my expectations were way too high. Or I simply expected something different because we’re talking about Kiersten White.It’s not a bad book, but it is very teenager-y (???) and I wanted something more dark and twisted, seeing that we’re in Buffy’s universe. But t...

    Full Review on my blog!*a copy was provided by NetGalley*“Being chosen is easy. Making choices will break your heart.” Wow. This was perfect in every way. It had action, romance, vampires, demons, I mean what more could you ask for?  It was a little slow at the beginning but I was quickly drawn in. The plot was great! The chemistry between the characters was insane. I loved everything about the book~For someone like myself who hasn't watch...

    This is the Buffyverse continuation we deserve! It elevated the world I loved so much with nuance and love and humor. Five by five stars, duh.
  • Megan
    I was a bit skeptical since reviews are mixed but I really enjoyed this! The characters were fun and conflicted and Nina's take and feelings on being a Slayer is so different from Buffy's. We also get to see the fallout of awakening all the potentials and the end of magic and how it affects the world we loved growing up. This is a revolutionary book, but its fun and brought back the nostalgia of the most badass show to ever grace our childhood sc...

    This was given to me by Simon Pulse and Netgalley for exchange of my honest opinion. Ok, I'm like obsessed with Buffy. It's still my favorite show ever and I've seen the seasons a stupid amount of times. I was really nervous about how this book would be but I honestly thing Kiersten did a great job at carving out her piece of Buffyverse. RTC

    "First rule in the Slayer handbook? When in doubt, hit something."Okay, as a 'I-grew-up-with-Buffy The Vampire Slayer' fan, my hopes for SLAYER were.. a lot. And I was totally bracing myself for major disappointment. But ultimately what this spinoff/new series did was make me want to rewatch a series that meant a lot to me for so many years.. so I count that as a win.In a world remade again and again, where the rules keep changing, where a Chosen...
