PopCulture Readathon, Buffy the Vampire Slayer: Big Baddies Board - Announcement & TBR

This January I'll been participating in the next round of the PopCulture Readathon, created and hosted by Whitney @ bookswhitme (with some assistance from Lo @ Reading Parental).   The theme is Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which is one of my all-time favorite tv shows, so I'll be starting the year off right!  There are 3 different boards - Slayer, Scooby Gang, and Big Baddies.  It was a tough choice, but I'm going to tackle the Big Baddies board  Without further ado, check out my Big Baddies TBR:

The Mayor - Book w/a snake on the cover

My choice: Girl, Serpent, Thorn by Melissa Bashardoust - I've been eyeing this YA fantasy novel at my library for awhile now and it's time I finally get to it.

Dark Willow - Book w/a power hungry character

My choice: The Councillor (The Councillor #1) by E.J. Beaton - This fantasy series opener sounds like it's going to be exactly up my alley.

Principal Snyder - Book set in high school 

My choice: Angelfire (Angelfire #1) by Courtney Allison Moulton - I just happened to find this at a thrift store not too long ago and it sounded intriguing enough that I thought I'd give it a chance.  It was published back in 2011, but somehow I'd never heard of it at all before.

Drusilla - Read a vampire book

My choice: Necroscope II: Vamphyri! (Necroscope #2) by Brian Lumley - I really enjoyed the first book in this series and I need to know what's next.

The Hellmouth - Read a paranormal/ urban fantasy book

My choice: Unquiet Dreams (Connor Grey #2) by Mark Del Franco - The first book in the series was solid, but I think the series has the potential to become pretty great.

She-Mantis - Book feat. sirens

My choice: Song of the Current (Song of the Current #1) by Sarah Tolcser - This has been pretty popular at my library, so I thought I'd see what all the fuss is about.

Spike - Book w/a loveable bad boy

My choice: The Life and Death of Lily Drake (Lily Drake #1) by T. Michelle Nelson - I picked this up at a book sale ages ago.  I don't know much about it, but it sounds like it could be a strong contender for this category.

Glory - Book feat. a goddess 

My choice: Antigoddess (Goddess War #1) by Kendare Blake - I don't know about you, but this mythology based series opener sounds like it could be fun.

Angelus - Psychological Thriller 

My choice: An Anonymous Girl by Greer Hendricks and Sarah Pekkanen - I've seen this compared to books by Ruth Ware and Riley Sager, so I need to give this a try.

Have you read any of these books?  Are you taking part in this readathon?  As always, thanks for visiting my blog and perhaps even commenting down below!


  1. I hadn't heard of this readathon, but now I'm really tempted! Girl Serpent Thorn and The Councillor were both big favourites of mine.

  2. Ooh fun. One thing I'm hoping to do is read more UF in 2022.

    Song of the Current has such a nice cover

    1. I've finished Unquiet Dreams and it was very good - I hope you find something you like. :)

  3. Wow, I love this! I should maybe join I. Too. Good luck!
