I love the Buzz Books Monthly books. The publishing dates are very helpful.  I like the summary at the beginning and the excerpts are just enough to keep me interested, or not.  I appreciate the effort it takes to compile these lists. Thank you!

An exciting list of new releases.in May.  Tin Man by Sarah Winman and Motherhood by Sheila Heti excerpts were highlights for me.  Also great to see a collection of William Trevor’s final short stories is being published.

The May 2018 Buzz Books Monthly edition was a comprehensive review of many upcoming publications. I enjoyed the excerpts the best, as they gave a solid amount of text from the upcoming publications. I also like the listings of when books are to be published; however, I would have enjoyed more photos. Overall, a good review of an anticipatory set of books!

I always enjoy these Monthly books of previews and lists of books to soon be published for the month ahead. I'm excited about what May has in store just judging by what was covered in this book, and I think everyone should read these monthly releases.

As though I need more books to add to Mount TBR! Lots of interesting books here, and The Electric Woman sounds intriguing.

Excellent insights as always, and a useful calendar of most of the books out in that particular month. The excerpts help you to discover whether the authors prose suits you or not which can often be a huge deciding factor in the overall satisfaction you gain from the read itself. I love it when you can sample the start of the book, there's nothing more influential in the potential readers decision of whether to make the purchase/pre-order or not. This guide means you make fewer 'bad' purchases of books that don't suit you or keep you entertained and invested in the narrative and characters. Bravo!!

Love these Buzz Books! Every time I see a new one is available I quickly click the button and read it right away.  I love being exposed to books I wouldn't normally even glance at.  I love how you get to read a bit of the story to see if it's something you would like.  Most of the previews have a link you can click on to request a copy!

Great way to learn about upcoming new books each month. I prefer spring/summer edition but would absolutely read another monthly edition and recommend to others.

This is a great collection of excerpts of upcoming books for the month of Mayl 2018. 

It contains an introduction followed by a section with a list of  "Extra Attention", "Literary Favorites and Emerging Talents", debut fiction, commercial fiction, and nonfiction titles. Then it has a section of "Week by Week" title releases and at the end some book excerpts that were originally published in Buzz Books 2018: Spring/Summer. I particularly enjoyed the excerpt for OUR KIND OF CRUELTY BY ARAMINTA HALL.

Overall, a great list of buzzing titles for the month of May 2018.

This is a good preview for upcoming books in May.  I would prefer that they include summaries along with titles instead of the preview chapters, since the books aren't sold by the preview chapters, but I don't, as a person who buys books, like having to drag myself to every single individual Amazon page to find out a basic summary.

An incredibly useful reference for anyone who wants to know what's up and coming. I've never had something so succinctly sum up what I'd like.

So many awesome books this month - even the YA and non fiction looks good. I like getting these reminders month by month rather than just by season as well (though I do love those bulk collections).

What a wonderful idea! I loved this collection of book excerpts and reviews for up and coming books. Thanks to this collection, I now have 7 more books added to my TBR, and can't wait until their release dates. 

A huge thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for sending me a digital copy of this book in exchange for an honest review. I truly appreciate it!

Every month brings a fresh new copy of Buzz Books and May is loaded with a new crop of titles for the coming reading season. There are 7 excerpts to peruse as well as The May Publishing Preview. Buzz Books are always a useful tool for all who are interested in what comes next in the book world.
