Book Spotlight/ Buzz Books Young Adult Spring/Summer 2016

After spotting this book and downloading it from Netgalley I seriously can’t wait for the spring/summer season to come.

I am always so happy when Publishers Lunch put out there Buzz Books for the upcoming seasons especially for the young adult books and that they expanded it to include more books. This is the fourth young adult Buzz Book and I enjoyed reading this and getting the chance to get a sneak peek into the upcoming young adult books that are coming out very soon.

The Buzz Books 2016 Young Adult Spring/Summer edition features 2o exclusive excerpts of new young adult titles. Each title includes the cover of the book, summary and a few chapters. Just enough to suck you into wanting to read the book or books asap.

Just from reading these 20 snippets I have to say that I think this Spring/Summer there is a ton of great young adult books coming out that I am pretty excited to read and honestly I have added them all to my every growing wishlist of books.

The only negative thing I have to say about the excerpts is that I wish the publishers would start off their excerpts with the first chapter and not at chapter 3 etc. Am I the only one who feels the same way?

  • With Malice by Eileen Cook (Canadian author) (June 7th, 2016)

Comments

  1. Progeny, Glittering Court, Beware That Girl, And I Draken are the ones I long for the most from this list.

  2. Yeah, I can’t handle when it doesn’t start at the very beginning- start with your strength. If Chapter 3 is the most riveting, than start with that!

    But… squuuuuuuueeeeee!

    I am SO EXCITED over The Glittering Court!!!!

    And THE RAVEN KING!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Also, My Lady Jane, because I love all 3 authors, but This Savage Song, And I Darken and several others look good too!

Speak Your Mind
