Book Spotlight/ Buzz Books 2016 Spring/Summer

If you are a book blogger then you pretty much know about this book. This is the seventh edition and it comes out twice a year. Inside each edition there is around 40 excerpts of the upcoming books.

I was beyond thrilled when I logged onto Netgalley and saw that this was already out. I am actually really excited for the Spring/Summer season to come so that I can dig into some pretty amazing books that will be coming out.

Really want to read:

This one sounds really good and the only thing I didn’t like was the excerpt started on Chapter 3 and then jumped to 23, 24 and then jumped to 38. So I have to admit I didn’t read and I am basing my opinion on the description alone as wanting to read this. (July 12, 2016)

This will be the perfect read. (March 8, 2016)

This one sounds interesting. (May 3, 2016)

This is a reimagining of Jane Eyre that sounds really good. (March 22, 2016)

This one has really peeked my interest. I really want to read this and I think this would be the perfect book to read this summer. (June 14, 2016)

I have to say that at first the cover drew me in but as I read the book description drew me in even more. (February 23, 2016)

This is another book that drew me in by the cover and after reading the book description and excerpt I really want to read this. (June 17, 2016)

This is another one that has peeked my interest. (May 3, 2016) (Debut)

Do any of these books peek your interest?
