The Calendar Girls is a monthly blog event that was created by Melanie at MNBernard Books, and Flavia at Flavia the Bibliophile, and is now hosted by Adrienne at Darque Dreamer Reads, and Katie at Never Not Reading. It was inspired by the 1961 classic song by Neil Sedaka and created to ignite fun bookish discussions among readers and bloggers.
2019 Release You’re Most Looking Forward To
I’m so excited to be finally participating in Calendar Girls! I haven’t been too good at keeping on top of things the past couple of months because I was trying to reach my Goodreads reading goal, but now I’m ready to post, post, post!
So this month’s theme is “2019 Release You’re Most Looking Forward To“, which is a great excuse for me to talk more about this beautiful gem of a book ❤ I’m happy that my most anticipated release happens to be coming out at the beginning of the year because once I knew this book was coming I could hardly wait to get my hands on it.
I tried very hard for a couple of months to get my hands on an ARC of Slayer. I tried NetGalley, Edelweiss, e-mailing the publisher, joining giveaways–everything. I’m kind of sad that I didn’t get an ARC but what can you do. I’m still super excited for this to come out in just a couple of days.
In case you don’t know much about Slayer, this is a book set in the Buffy the Vampire Slayer universe. If you’re a fan, this is going to be so much fun going back to this world. It’s set after the events in the TV show series but with a brand new slayer. If you’re not familiar with the BTVS universe it’s totally cool! This is, like I said, a new slayer and Kiersten White is great at summarizing things. It’ll be pretty easy to catch up on things and get the basic handle on the lingo and all that. I’m honestly just looking forward to seeing what this new slayer’s storyline is going to be and having a kickass female heroine as a lead.
This is going to be that book that I keep bringing up and recommend to everyone. Not only is it one of my favorite fandoms, but it’s one of my all-time favorite authors ❤ I couldn’t ask for anything better. Seriously, can’t wait for this to come out on January 8th and I hope you guys will go check it out too!
