This is a great selection of samples of upcoming books. Highly recommend it to anyone who is in a bit of a reading slump & can't decide what to read next. This sampler will give you a little bit of everything from which to choose.

A good selection of upcoming works to help sort through the barrage of upcoming titles. I found quite a few books that I'll definitely be interested in picking up due to being able to read these samples.

This debut sampler gives us a tease at great stories to come, as always. All of these authors I haven't heard of until now, but their stories are promising.

Samplers are great opportunities to sort through the barrage of titles. I am usually a fan of Penguin Random House selections, so I was particularly excited for this one. Of the titles, I am already familiar with All the Secrets We Kept, but the other ones are new to me. This sampler would be even better if the formatting were improved. With no way to click directly to the titles and with strangely formatted text, I found this one hard to get through.

Always fun to have a glimpse of what's coming out .

Thanks to author,publisher and Netgalley for the chance to read this book. While I got the book for free,it had no bearing on the rating I gave it.

I love reading these samplers because I always find something new I want to read. This sampler included books I probably would have read anyways like The Better Liar by Tanen Jones and books I probably would not have glanced at if I had not read the sample - like How Quickly She Disappears by Raymond Fleischmann and All That's Bright and Gone by Eliza Nellums.

Another fantastic sampler of exciting forthcoming fiction. These samplers give a great overview of an author's style as well as opening my world to genres and titles I might otherwise overlook.

There are a lot of great books coming out this fall! I've already read and enjoyed The Secrets We Kept, and will add more of these titles to my to-read list.

I just love this format. I read and make a list of the books that I want to finish. Thanks Netgalley.

Wow, all these titles look so good! It has a great variety of Fall titles - mystery, thriller, detective, contempo, historical, literary, science fiction. Monsters (literally and figuratively), family problems, sibling rivalry, people who don't grow old, social media, rape. It really can't get more varied than this! This is a great way to get a feel for the titles without downloading all the titles that may or may not strike a librarian's fancy. Thanks for this format.

Love the opportunity to discover new authors through this sampler. I am a mystery buff looking for strong female characters, so particularly interested in The Better Liar.

Was this review helpful?

So sorry. I couldn't handle this format. Each book was only a chapter or so long with absolutely no editing and hyphens all over the place.. I actually only read one book in it's entirety (sample) and couldn't tell you which one it was except it took place in Alaska. I would not try this type of download again!
