Stacking The Shelves is a meme hosted by Tynga’s Reviews and Reading Reality all about sharing the books you are adding to your shelves, may it be physical or virtual. This means you can include books you buy in physical store or online, books you borrow from friends or the library, review books, gifts, and of course ebooks! And audiobooks. Don’t forget audiobooks!

I showed some restraint again this week. Only two books again!


Publication Date: January 4, 2022

This isn’t my usual genre, but I did watch all the Buffy shows “back in the day” and saw a wonderful review for this book.

Synopsis: The first in an all-new series by New York Times best-selling author Kendare Blake continues the world of Buffy the Vampire Slayer featuring the next generation of Scoobies and Slayers who must defeat a powerful new evil.

A new Slayer for a new generation….

Frankie Rosenberg is passionate about the environment, a sophomore at New Sunnydale High School, and the daughter of the most powerful witch in Sunnydale history. Her mom, Willow, is slowly teaching her magic on the condition that she use it to better the world. But Frankie’s happily quiet life is upended when new girl Hailey shows up with news that the annual Slayer convention has been the target of an attack, and all the Slayers—including Buffy, Faith, and Hailey’s older sister Vi—might be dead. That means it’s time for this generation’s Slayer to be born.

But being the first ever Slayer-Witch means learning how to wield a stake while trying to control her budding powers. With the help of Hailey, a werewolf named Jake, and a hot but nerdy sage demon, Frankie must become the Slayer, prevent the Hellmouth from opening again, and find out what happened to her Aunt Buffy, before she’s next.

Get ready for a whole new story within the world of Buffy!

Publication Date: June 21, 2022

I read Kate Bromley’s previous book “Talk Bookish To Me” and really enjoyed it. And this is about the THEATER!

Synopsis: It wouldn’t be the theater without a few theatrics….

Becoming a famous playwright is all Winnie ever dreamed about. For now, though, she’ll have to settle for assisting the celebrated, sharp-witted feminist playwright Juliette Brassard. When an experimental theater company in London, England, decides to stage Juliette’s most renowned play, The Lights of Trafalgar, Winnie and Juliette pack their bags and hop across the pond.

But the trip goes sideways faster than you can say “tea and crumpets.” Juliette stubbornly butts heads with the play’s director and Winnie is left stage-managing their relationship. Meanwhile, Winnie’s own work seems to have stalled, and though Juliette keeps promising to read it, she always has some vague reason why she can’t. Then, Juliette’s nephew, Liam, enters stage left. He’s handsome, he’s smart, he is devastatingly British…and his family ties to Juliette pose a serious problem, forcing Winnie to keep their burgeoning relationship on the down-low. What could go wrong?

Balancing a production seemingly headed for disaster, a secret romance and the sweetest, most rambunctious rescue dog, will Winnie save the play, make her own dreams come true and find love along the way—or will the slings and arrows of outrageous fortune get the best of her?

That’s all I have for this week. Have you read any of these books? What’s on your list to read? Comment below!

    You showed considerable restraint with just the two titles from Netgalley. Lol! Count me as another Buffy fan too, Wendy. Hope In Every Generation lives up to our high expectations (Buffy fans I mean)

    • I just finished it Greg, and I was only occasionally watched the TV show, and I still really enjoyed the book. She’s an excellent writer.

  2. That is wonderful restraint, Wendy. I definitely want to read Here for the Drama, but it is not showing for me. I guess I have to be patient. Enjoy them both.

  3. I LOVED Buffy the Vampire Slayer! Probably watched the whole series like 4 times. Didn’t realize there were stories that continued from where the TV show left off. I’d miss Spike, though!

  4. I remember watching Buffy too, so the n Every Generation may turn out to be a fun pick.

    I was very restrained this week with one from NetGalley, The Secret of the Treasure Keepers by A.M. Howell, and Jane’s Country Year by Malcolm Saville from Edelweiss

  5. I was approved for 5 books this week, I partially blame you because I know at least one book was from your list, LOL! Have a fabulous weekend, Wendy!!
