5 Stars for Chosen by Kiersten White @kierstenwhite @SimonSchusterCA #Review #YABooks #YAReads #BuffytheVampireSlayer #Vampires #Paranormal #BookBlogger

So much Slayer goodness!  This was such a nostalgic read for me as I am a HUGE Buffy fan, and nothing has filled the gaping wound since the final episode aired many, many years ago! Naturally, I started with Slayer, which was also fantastic but in Chosen, Nina the MC, really comes into her own.

Book vs Movie: City of Bones (The Mortal Instruments #1) by Cassandra Clare #ThrowbackThurday #Books #ShadowHunters #YAReads #YABooks #Movies #BookBlogger

I'm going back to a throwback feature here, comparing what is a fantastic book to it's sub-par adaptation (still so disappointed). What makes it hurt even more is that we could have had a whole franchise of Shadowhunter movies had it not bombed so spectacularly!
