As usual, a good overview of the books coming out this summer. Always enjoy learning of upcoming new releases!

Excited for a lot of titles in here! Some of them I think will end up with a lot more traction than others and at least one that I don't think will hit the market as well as they think. Either way, I'm excited for a lot of them!

This collection of releases is great. Tin Man , which I have already read was a standout novel of my 2017 year. All of the other books in this pack are now on my Want To Read List

I adore these round-ups of upcoming novels, and only wish I'd caught onto some of them sooner. My library hold list (and kindle files) are stacking up!

The Perfect Mother and Our Kind of Cruelty in particular had excellent extracts. So excited to read the books!

I love having a monthly list of the most anticipated book release dates. It makes life so much easier knowing what I want to read next. I'm particularly excited for the release of Our Kind of Cruelty by Araminta Hall (I read the excerpt for this one in a previous release from Buzz Books) and The Perfect Mother by Aimee Molloy. The excerpt from The Perfect Mother in this edition of Buzz Books Monthly really grabbed my attention and I can't wait to read more. I was just approved an early copy of How to Walk Away by Katherine Center (also read an excerpt of this one in a previous release), and I can't wait to start on it today. Motherhood by Sheila Heti also looks promising. I actually purchased this one on the day it was released (May 1st), and I'm nearly finished with it. It's the first autobiographical fiction I've read and much different from what I usually read, but I've really enjoyed it so far. May definitely looks to be a promising month in the literary world!

Nice compilation of books to be released in may and I liked the excerpts of upcoming books.  I discovered a few books I had not heard of in it.

Her is another tantalizing book for excerpts to add to my to read list. Keep this coming - I love the little "teasers" in these books.

I enjoyed reading this round up of the best books coming out this month. There are some well-written literary novels and some action-packed thrillers to choose from. I particularly enjoy reading the samplers to get a feel for storylines and writing style before I buy books. There wasn't anything in particular that stood out to me, but that's a personal taste issue.

The May 2018 Buzz Books Monthly sample is great to get to find out some of the upcoming books.  Some samples are given.  It is a good way to read a excerpt of a author's book you have not read yet.

I loved this edition on upcoming books! Hope to read it every month and get ahead on all the new titles that are coming up.

Not much to say here. I like books, books, and books. Lots to look forward to reading next month! Can't wait :)

Sadly, I've been away from reading for a month or so, just picking up a book today to sink back in. Reading this month's Buzz Books Monthly really relit the fire for me, getting me excited about books I have on tap for next month (Mars Room, I'm lookin' at you!), and highlighting a few I hadn't heard of somehow. A brilliant way to get back on my reading game!

Lord, I'm excited!

What I'm Looking Forward to: 
* The Pisces by Melissa Broder (5/1/18)
* Adjustment Day by Chuck Palahniuk (5/1/18)
* Lost Empress by Sergio de la Plava (5/8/18)
* What Should be WIld by Julie Fine (5/8/18)

The Perfect Mother... Holy wow! I wasn't expecting to sit there with my eyes glued to the chapter, but I did. It's described as Big Little Lies meets Girl on the Train meets Before the Fall. The surprising ending of the excerpt has me adding this to my TBR. 

Actually all of these books look so intriguing. I can't wait for May.

This was a really useful preview of some great books coming up next month. I read extracts from books that i might not otherwise have picked up but will now look out for. I was also really excited to read the extract from legendary as I recently read Caraval and loved it. This was the first time that I had read one of these preview collections and I will be reading more in the future! A great way to get a taste of lots of different books to see what you might like to read

This was an excellent way to find out just what exciting books are soon to be released. There’s a really useful calendar but perhaps even better are the various excerpts designed to encourage readers to want to read more. If I’m honest only one book didn’t appeal to me so downloading this was definitely a good idea.
