I am a huge HUUUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan. I was (teenage) raised on Buffy, watched every single season (own them still), plus Angel (even though I am TEAM SPIKE), and am currently reading the ongoing comic book series (up next is season 12! First issue to be release June 20th according to my research–Wut wut!).

Anywhooo, I just want to make sure that everybody understand that when I say that I am excited about Slayer by Kiersten White you know I am LEGIT excited.

When I first heard the news Kiersten White was writing Buffy I was a bit iffy. Will she do it justice, is it canon, will it intersect in any way with the comic?

I do not quite know yet all the answers to these questions, BUT I did get a chance to read the Entertainment Weekly excerpt (which I almost never do because excerpts are such a tease) and it has made me feel 100% better about this whole endeavor as a die hard Buffy fan.

From the excerpt I got:

  • It is set around season 9 of Buffy. Because that is when we deal with the “end of magic” and the main character kept referring to Buffy’s fuck up, and “how are watcher’s supposed to deal without magic?”
  • Kiersten White likes to write about twins.
  • The main character is totally adorable, and I already love her a little.
  • Wanda WYNDHAM-PRICE… am I to believe this is WESLEY’s Mother?! We shall see…
  • I need the book right NAO. Only an apocalypse can keep me away!

DC is Hoarding all the Big Name YA Authors…

And I’m loving it!

If you can’t beat Marvel at their movie game (I mean, they just can’t) then let’s try to go another route! With popular authors like Meg Cabot (The Princess Diaries), Kami Garcia (Beautiful Creatures), Danielle Paige (Dorothy Must Die), Lauren Myracle (Internet Girls), Melissa De La Cruz (Blue Bloods), Mariko Tamaki (She Hulk! Lumberjanes)…

Well, DC is seriously going for the kill, and trying to entice a new generation of readers into the fold.

Black Canary by Meg Cabot

*To be clear, these will be illustrated novels, and not book books.
**Also, I love ALL THE COVERS.

I am so excited, I can’t even. Although I am not a fan of Harley Quinn (she seems like such a bad role model for little girls) I am hoping that Mariko Tamaki will take this character in a different direction. Maybe it won’t be true to the character’s roots, but if Harley Quinn is being promoted for little girls she might as well get a character makeover.

I am MOST excited about Black Canary and Raven ❤ ❤ ❤

Melissa de La Cruz will be writing Batman: Gotham High (no cover as of yet), and Laurie Halse Anderson will be writing Wonder Woman:Tempest Tossed (no cover yet).

I need to Pre-order ASAP.

Magic Shifts (Kate Daniels #8) by Ilona Andrews

Book confession #1: Kate Daniels is virtually all I’ve read this year. I do not regret it as she is fabulous and all I need out of life.

Above is a funny quote from Magic Shifts, which is as non-spoilery as I can get as this is the 8th book in the series.

Will be posting more quotes as I read along because I want to introduce others to the humor and just awesomeness that is Kate Daniels, aka I want you to fangirl alongside me.

PS; I sort of started reading The Valiant by Lesley Livingston, and so far (only like 40 pages in) it is taking twists and turns I was not expecting. I like it.
