NetGalley Review: Young Adult Summer Spring Excerpts
Buzz Books 2016 Young Adult Spring/Summer - Publishers Lunch

So as of right now this book is free on Amazon.com


I have not thought to look into a sample book of excerpts. I actually decided to give this a read and see if I could find some books that I could add to my list. I have to say out of all the books I actually only enjoyed about three of them.

All of the authors within this story are new to me so that was nice though I have only heard of one of the authors but never had read one of her books. 

The first excerpt I enjoyed was With Malice by Eileen Cook. It is about a young girl who wakes up with no memory of what happened to her or what happened to her best friend. Though she slowly learns that something terrible happened and that she may have been the cause of it. This story really pulled me in from the beginning and I was sad when it ended I actually wanted a whole lot more. 

Story two was The Progeny by Tosca Lee Emily Jacobs has no memory of her past or who she really is. So what quest does she have to be on that will bring her to the underground of Europe. That is something that the books leaves you wondering about. I can't imagine not remembering my past or anything it would be a bit scary but it seems the author gives us a bit of mystery within the excerpt that will for sure want you reading more.

The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight now this was seems like it could be a good book. Wylie hasn't heard from her best friend Cassie and she is worried that something has happened. When her mother ends up at her front door with no shoes on because she hasn't seen Cassie Wylie knows something is wrong but will she find out the answers or even find Cassie before it is too late?

Now some of the stories didn't pull me in but just because they were not for me doesn't mean that wouldn't be for you. I really like how we get to read some excerpts before we go to either buy the book or borrow the book. 


All of the books within this book of excerpt range from magical, to romance, adventure. So you may find something within that will call you to read it.

Buzz Books 2016: Spring/Summer
Buzz Books 2016 Spring/Summer - Publishers Lunch

This is the companion for the Buzz Books with YA titles, this time filled with adult novels and non-fiction as well.


I was really looking forward to reading it. The Buzz Books were scheduled to be released just after my final exam, so it was just a great moment for me to dive into them. And, I'm glad I did for it seemed there were quite a number of interesting titles that were available for request (or via a widget read now) on Netgalley. Over the last two weeks I've been granted access to the titles I wanted the most, for which of course I'm really thankful.


The mix this time included a lot of mystery books, which I didn't mind, but it may not be to everyone's liking. The non-fiction part I didn't really like, I thought it was too American-heavy, featuring books that I think will mostly appeal (only) to an American audience.


Thanks to the publisher and Netgalley for providing me with a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review!

Yes, it is that time of the year again. I was eagerly looking forward to the new Buzz Books as they give the first glimpse of what the next publishing season is going to bring. 


In this collection there were 20 titles, and you are given a short description and a sample. After reading the sample you can decide whether or not you want to request the book on Netgalley via the in book provided link. I already got some new books, that I'm currently reading from this collection.


Last year I thought the spring edition was considerably less interesting than the fall one, but I thought this was a strong and interesting edition.
