An excellent selection of upcoming YA novels! These excerpts were great and I'm looking forward to reading quite a few of these, particularly Romanov, Once and Future and Descendant of the Crane.

Such a great selection of books! It is really helpful to read a sneak peek before committing to reading the whole book. Thanks a lot!

This book was a review of the forthcoming titles for the Spring and Summer 2019. It's kind of hard to evaluate the book as a book because it's not really designed as a "book" in the traditional sense. I can say that there were a number of books that I saw in this collection of excerpts that I really think sound interesting and have promise. I will be definitely checking out one or two of them further.

Lots of promising YA reads coming soon! Many of the samples include high-interest plots with strong leading characters. Expect well-written plots with exceptional world building. The world of magic and intrigue is par for the course -- I can't wait to read more!

What a fabulous collection of samplers! I always love Buzz Books because it gives me an idea of what awesome upcoming releases to keep my eye on and what books I neeeed to pre-order. As always, there were a lot of promising upcoming releases in this one. I'm especially excited for Bloodleaf, Descendant of the Crane, and To Best the Boys!

Everyone loves to be "in the know" to have the inside track on new products, movies and books.  So imagine my surprise and delight when I recently discovered Buzz Books 2019 featuring excerpts from upcoming titles.  What a marvelous idea!

Like a literary taste test, readers can nibble at various new books set to come out. I think this would be an invaluable resource for teachers, school and public librarians as well as parents trying to satisfy a bookworm's insatiable thirst for books.  A daunting task in today's world where much written isn't always the most "nutritious" to put it mildly.   Having a little sample of a particular author is a great way to discover new authors to try, to find out whether you will enjoy. This ultimately saves the reader time (from wading through books at the library) and money (not purchasing books that you end up hating).  

For each book, the cover is shown (which they note may change when published), a very helpful summary, the first chapter of the book and then a nice author bio to finish out the selection. I loved having a chance to become familiar with new works and new authors. This is a resource I definitely recommend to educators, librarians and parents. Now if only it would include video book trailers to really save time!

I always look forward to seeing the next edition of Buzz Books come out! This is such a great way to get an idea of what's being published soon. As a librarian, this is great for purchasing purposes. As an avid reader, I love being able to read a sample of the books ahead of time to get a feel for the author's writing style.

I love the Buzz.. it gives me enough insight into titles to hand sell them or search for the ARC and make them my staff picks. This is one of my favorite sales tools!

I love learning about new titles all in one location. Each of these new books look incredible I can't wait to request all of these books. I don't know why everyone doesn't check out this preview book to learn what is coming out.

I enjoy reading the Buzz Books samplers that give excerpts from upcoming YA books. Unfortunately, in this edition there were not really many books that appealed to me. There are a few sequels to series that I've not yet read and there are several retellings that I'm not interested in. While there were no books I intend on reading from this collection I do intend on perusing future Buzz Books editions. My thanks to Netgalley for providing me with this copy.

I really appreciate these books!  It helps with ordering and finding titles.  I like the excerpts, which helps get a better feel for a book and whether or not I need to order it for my library.  I also like the listing of release dates.  It helps so much!

Another season, another collection of YA books that are soon-to-be-released.  As usual, Publishers Launch has put together an eclectic collection of books.  This set was definitely heavy on the fantasy side which could be a deterrent to some.   I was very excited to read the graphic novel excerpt. 

Overall, an interesting selection of upcoming books.

I really enjoyed reading the teasers. I would say that my favorite of them all was the first about the Romanovs. I wanted to keep reading!

When you have been blogging as long as I have and live outside of the USA it tends to be hard to get sneak peeks of upcoming titles so having this allows me to discover some hidden little gems that I might not otherwise know about and the chance to see some fantastic titles coming out.
