Happy Wednesday bookaholics!! Time for another Waiting on Wednesday.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event, hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine that spotlights upcoming releases that we’re eagerly anticipating. A similar meme, Can’t-Wait Wednesday, is hosted by Tressa over at Wishful Endings.

My pick for this week’s “can’t wait to read” is
Expected publication: January 8th 2019
Publisher: Simon Pulse
Format: Hardcover 416 pages
Genre(s): Young Adult, Fantasy, Paranormal
Into every generation a Slayer is born…
Nina and her twin sister, Artemis, are far from normal. It’s hard to be when you grow up at the Watcher’s Academy, which is a bit different from your average boarding school. Here teens are trained as guides for Slayers—girls gifted with supernatural strength to fight the forces of darkness. But while Nina’s mother is a prominent member of the Watcher’s Council, Nina has never embraced the violent Watcher lifestyle. Instead she follows her instincts to heal, carving out a place for herself as the school medic.
Until the day Nina’s life changes forever.
Thanks to Buffy, the famous (and infamous) Slayer that Nina’s father died protecting, Nina is not only the newest Chosen One—she’s the last Slayer, ever. Period.
As Nina hones her skills with her Watcher-in-training, Leo, there’s plenty to keep her occupied: a monster fighting ring, a demon who eats happiness, a shadowy figure that keeps popping up in Nina’s dreams…
But it’s not until bodies start turning up that Nina’s new powers will truly be tested—because someone she loves might be next.
One thing is clear: Being Chosen is easy. Making choices is hard
SLAYER… Buffy… I really don’t need to know anymore than that!
I was a HUGE Buffy the Vampire Slayer fan back in the days. AND, the show filmed near my elementary school so the whole cast and crew parked at my school for like a week or so. I remember seeing Alyson cause she actually came by to say hello to us. The others would just roam and wave every now and then and I did get to see Sarah a few times walking the grounds, but I never really got to see anyone up close, except for Alyson. BUT, one of my friends from Day Care was able to get all their signatures for me. I do still have that piece of paper somewhere in the house… which reminds me, I should probably look for it and frame it somewhere.
Mannn… this show brings back so many good memories for me. It was the show that sparked my love for anything vampires and paranormal. Also, Buffy and Angel and Buffy and Spike completely ruined me. I love those two OTPs, but if I’m being honest, I like Buffy and Spike a little bit more. What can I say, I’m drawn to the dark side/bad boy types. And just thinking about it makes me want to binge the show all over again. Maybe one of these days. Anyway, so yeah I’m really excited about this book. Are you a fan of Buffy the Vampire Slayer? What are your thoughts and feelings on this book? What’s on your Waiting on Wednesday pick today?
