Great selections (as always)!! I cannot wait to read the full novels!
This is really helpful for book bloggers across the globe. 😍😍😍
Good mix of samples shame there wasn't more YA but the two that were included were great! Extremely curious and excited to read more of Roar!
This works perfectly on my kindle fire. Also, I found a new book I want to read. "The Marsh Kings daughter," sounds right up my alley! I think I'm going to enjoy having these monthly editions! Thanks, Publishers Lunch.
Wow! Some incredible excerpts, added lots of books to my TBR!
This is another great collection of excerpts! I can't wait to add some of these to my reading schedule and feature them on my blog.
It is wonderful to have a foretaste of the books to come in June. I liked having the lists of authors and titles. Particularly appreciated the excerpts given from the chosen books. An excellent idea!!
Great selections! Cannot wait for these. Thank you for the previews!
This edition has to be one of my favourites. Not only do you get to read an excerpt from Roar by Cara Carmack, but you also get to read one from Dividing Eden by Joelle Charbonneu. I didn't know how much I wanted to read Dividing Eden until I read chapter one.
The Adult title that really caught my eye was The Marsh King's Daughter. The synopsis and the excerpt have me hooked already. I can't wait to give these titles a read.
This monthly edition brought excerpts from seven books releasing in June; a healthy mixture of genres. This time I ended up with 1 book being added to the ‘read now’ list - Come Sundown by Nora Roberts, 1 tossed on my heaping ‘maybe’ pile - The Marsh King’s Daughter by Karen Dionne and 4 others that didn’t pique my interest enough to even consider. I’m not typically one for memoirs, but I have to admit, there was something about the Hunger by Roxane Gay excerpt that grabbed me . . . still trying to decide what do with that—to read or not to read is the decision.
Just like with the other editions I’ve read, the round-up (a comprehensive list of all the monthly releases, by date and genre) was my favorite part. It’s nice to have a complete list, so I know I’m not missing out on anything noteworthy. Thanks, Publishers Lunch, for another great month.
I always love looking at these each month. It always gets me excited to read the upcoming books for each moth. I wish there was a wider YA selection this month, but still great! Super excited for Roxane Gay's Hunger!
Being able to read excerpts from new books is a great idea. I love Buzz books monthly from Netgalley. Can't wait to read The Marsh Kings Daughter. Brilliant first chapter!
Love these previews; looking forward to the Fall/Winter 2017 volumes.
Another great selection of titles to try to many books to add to the TBR.. Love!
Great to see extracts from books that have/are being released.
I always love when these Buzz Books come available. It's an awesome way to be exposed to books you normally wouldn't reach for. It takes you out of your comfort zone. You get to read a few chapters of a book to see if you are going to like it or not. The best part is there is usually a link at the end of each one to click on to request! Brilliant!!
I always like to check the Buzz Books Monthly and the Buzz Books YA Seasonal editions to get a sample of lots of books that I wouldn't ordinarily seek out excerpts of on my own. The June edition had a few good excerpts from authors I had heard of, such as Nora Roberts with "Come Sundown", whom I have never read before. I will likely give that particular book a full read, but enjoyed the other excerpt offerings as well.
As expected, another great selection of upcoming books! :)
Some good recommendations! I'll keep a look-out for those books, a few looked of definite interest.
Truly the best guide for monthly book releases, excerpts and info!
Awesome as usual, I particularly liked the Roxanne Gay exerpt!
I love the Buzz Books Monthly - it's a great way to beef up my already-too-long TBR list... June especially has some very interesting titles being released. Both Dividing Eden (YA) and Carnivalesque (general adult) have been on my radar, and I am excited to read both of these, as well as several of the other titles that will be released.
Every month, I look forward to the next Buzz Books. The excerpts either introduce me to books I somehow missed, or get my blood pumping for something I've got in my queue. Great as always!
I love the opportunity to read these each month. It is such a great way to learn what's coming in the fiction world. There are some excellent excerpts among these titles.
Absolutely amazing as always. I really love the monthly feature.
I pre-ordered Roar. It sounds exactly like something I would love. I'm thinking about reading Dividing Eden and The Marsh King's Daughter. We'll see how they fit into my TBR when it gets closer to release date.
Preview of upcoming literature, including debuts. Can't wait to get my hands on The Marsh King's Daughter.
Insightful! Definitely great to know what books to be on the lookout for. A tad overwhelming though.
As usual, an absolutely amazing selection of books. Perfect for bloggers (like me!) who are constantly on the lookout for new books.. Joelle Charbonneau's new YA novel, "Diving Eden", especially stood out to me- I think I'll be requesting it soon. Buzz Books are truly amazing opportunities for new authors to gain exposure in the reading community, and once more, I would like to applaud the genius that thought of this idea.
I love getting these previews!!!! These books give me a chance to see what is coming out soon and start my reading list. Thanks for publishing these!
A great sampler (as always) of titles to look forward to next month.
Excellent book choices, as always! Book Buzz provides teasers and samples of the hottest reads yet to be published.
Great resource as always. I can't wait for what June has in store for reading.
A concise and helpful summary of books to look forward to in June along with excerpted from featured authors.
I love getting to read excerpts prior to publication, and the June Buzz Books is a great example of why excerpts are so effective. Before I read the excerpt of Hunger by Roxane Gay, I was afraid I wouldn't like a book about weight and carrying heaviness. Now, having read the excerpt, I can hardly wait for the book's publication, so I can read it for myself and evaluate it for a nonfiction course I teach. Roxane Gay is such a powerful writer, and she's good enough to draw me in quickly and to make me avid about what she wants to share about being overweight. Body size, weight and hunger are topics we want to shun examining, but Roxane Gay has made me want to read and look carefully. Thanks so much for this excerpt!
Several of these titles sounded interesting and I will be checking into them
I am so excited for the books to come! I am especially looking out for the YA Fantasy books, Dividing Eden and Roar. I think that they are unique and dark - just right up my alley! I am also looking forward to The Marsh King's Daughter, a dark and haunting read which will definitely be a hit for readers everywhere.
These monthly updates are great and very helpful! In June, I am looking forward to having more time to read and already have a long list. I am especially looking forward to several new mysteries, including Margaret Maron's Take Out.
This book was very helpful! The excerpts lent me some idea about the writing style of some authors like Roxanne Gay and a glimpse into some books I've heard about but lacked on info. It's a really great publication for recs!
Wonderful compilation of upcoming titles. I'm especially excited about The Marsh King's Daughter by Karen Dionne, Come Sundown by Nora Roberts, and Roar by Cora Carmack.
I love that Buzz Books has started a monthly edition. Out of the June books featured in this issue, I was really intrigued by The Marsh King's Daughter.
I am currently reading The Marsh King's Daughter and am really enjoying it, so while this June Buzz Books Monthly is short, it was worth it for me to find the above book.
Thankyou for a really handy and concise guide to the releases of the month. An invaluable asset to bibliophiles such as myself!
Exciting reads which i did not know about. Titles which werent on my wishlist but happy to see anyway
I use this on my blog to spotlight upcoming releases that my readers might not know about
This book is such great information about upcoming books!!!! It has helped me tons in deciding if I wanted to add more books to my summer TBR!!
Found a couple of titles that I had overlooked previously. Looks like a busy month of reading.
I love these books. So many great reads to look forward to.
I was fortunate to attend BookExpo after reading my June Buzz Book Monthly AND THEN attend the Book Buzz seminar which was PACKED! I understand you set a new attendance record! Congratulations! It was thrilling to have editors/publishers/individuals directly connected to the top 6 novels there to speak about the books. The only negative I would have is the way the books were distributed after, but then again, it's always a challenge! I give you guys an A+++++
Really loved reading the snippets of books that are in this Buzz Book for June! Will have to pick up several of the books inside this one to read. Can't wait to read most of them!
I always love these buzz books. They are great for finding exciting new titles to enjoy. Can't wait for the next one!
I love getting these so I can read about all the fantastic books coming out during the month. It's safe to say that I've add more books to my TBR!
Such a great selection! Roar and Dividing Eden are at the top of my TBR now. Thank you for providing Buzz Books!
this book is a wealth of information for any librarian looking for RA information. It give you a brief insight into the book and offers links to author information.
I looked over the list of 100 new books that tells you of the titles that are being published in June. There are 7 excerpts of books. One is nonfiction. I enjoy reading these excerpts as it gives me a chance to decide if I want to buy the book or not. I don't mind finding new authors to read.
I really enjoy reading the excerpts from upcoming titles. I have learned of books that I may not have heard of elsewhere. My favorite part is the chance to try out authors who are new to me and that I may not have picked up their book otherwise.
