As always, Buzz Books has released a selection of great excerpts. I was thrilled to read excerpts from books I was already aware of and excited for - Beasts Made of Night, Girls Made of Snow and Glass, Warcross, All Rights Reserved - and I was pleased to find that I enjoyed them all immensely. I think All Rights Reserved is going to end up being a favourite of mine.

Wonderful to see the diverse range of books on offer in this genre. Definitely an interesting selection, very interested in some of them. Thank you for this. So appreciated!!

This was the best edition of Buzz Books in recent memory! The Young Adult Fall / Winter 2017 Edition is packed full of wonderful book excerpts from talented authors... some of the authors are completely new to me, and some are old favorites (like Marie Lu!) It opens with an excerpt in prose, which I nearly swore I would never read a book in prose again, but it hooked me right from the start. I felt like I could hear the spoken words as the story unfolded.

Thanks for providing this as an eARC. I added a lot to my TBR pile today.

While I didn't find myself attracted to quite as many of the YA offerings this time around, I love that YA is broken out in the seasonal additions and will continue to look forward to each seasonal addition of Buzz Books.

Super useful as always, I can't wait for these releases, most look so good. I loved it!❤❤

Was this review helpful?

There are so many new releases to get excited about in the upcoming season. A feminist retelling of Snow White (GIRLS MADE OF SNOW AND GLASS)? YES PLEASE AND THANK YOU. A world dominated by clones (YOUR ONE AND ONLY)? SIGN ME UP! Nigerian-influences fantasy (BEASTS MADE OF NIGHT)? MORE PLEASE. This sampler almost has me craving cozy sweaters and hot chocolate. (Almost but not quite. I'm most definitely a warm weather girl.)

When ever I see a new Buzz Books is available I run to it!! I love the idea of getting exposed to a book I normally wouldn't pick up. I have found wonderful new to me authors this way and it's so easy to request an ARC with the link at the end of each excerpt. Keep up the good work!!

I loved reading the summaries of the upcoming YA novels. I am extremely excited to read many of the featured books and have added multiple to my TBR list. It is wonderful to get a sneak peak at these books because it helps shape my future reading goals and trends. Thanks for providing this amazing compilation to me - I thoroughly enjoyed every word.

Definitely interested in a lot of these releases. I'm reading an arc of Girls Made Of Snow and Glass right now, and it's just as fabulous as promised. Marie Lu's book and Marieke Nijkamp's book both look so amazing, and I was glad to get excerpts from them.

Aside from that, I enjoyed the excerpt Solo, which I hadn't heard of until now. I hope none of them disappoint.

I'm already a fan of the Buzz Books excerpts, but this has to be my favorite one yet.
I requested MANY of these from NetGalley, but I also preordered several.
The ones I'm excited about are:
Girls Made of Snow and Glass
Your One & Only
Everless
All Rights Reserved
Warcross
Love Songs & Other Lies

Another season, another set of book excerpts from Publishers Lunch, this time in preparation for colder weather. As usual, I’ve written down the ones that piqued my interest the most and I am incredibly excited to get my hands on them as soon as I can.

My can’t wait for books:

1. Girls Made of Snow and Glass by Melissa Bashardoust

2. Everless by Sara Holland

3. All Rights Reserved by Gregory Scott Katsoulis

4. The Gatekeepers by Jen Lancaster

5. Warcross by Marie Lu

6. Before I Let Go by Marieke Nijkamp. I’m not entirely sure about this one yet, but it certainly sounds intriguing.

7. Beasts Made of Night by Tochi Onyebuchi

I'm waiting this buzz book every year, it's great to have a snipet of the next big releases in YA. As always I like some of them and other a bit less.

I always love the Buzz Books samplers. I haven't been able to attend a Book Con yet, although I'm dying to go one day. These little samplers are great to get preview what the next big upcoming books are, especially when they feature some of my favorite authors or most anticipated releases. There are a couple books in this sampler that I'm kind of interested in. There isn't anything I absolutely have to have in this one at this point. However, I've had some must read books seriously disappoint me and some that I wasn't all that interested in really surprise me, so you never can tell until you give it a shot. I love getting to read samples of things I may not normally pick up or things I don't even know about.

Thank you to Netgalley, Publishers Lunch BUZZ BOOKS, Kathryn Berla, Jen Lancaster, Gregory Scott, Sara Holland, Kwame Alexander, Mary Rand Hess, Will Kostakis, Melissa Bashardoust, Jessica Pennington, Marie Lu, Tochi Onyebuchi, and Lauren Miller for the chance to read and review this ARC;

I am such a big fan of the Buzz Book previews, that give teachers, reviewers, and librarians the ability to place their fingers on the pulse of newest, bring up and comers about to drop into the scene. I love this volume, and it is my newest favorite of them.

I'm crazy interested and already looking most to get my hands on copies of Solo (by Hess & Alexander) given it's all written gloriously in evocative poetry, in Girls Made of Snow and Glass (by Bashardhoust) as a glorious gripping feminist retelling of the story of the well-beloved Snow White, and Warcross (Lu) who has taken the VR game land and given it a gripping new tale.

I can't wait to see, and all of these books, in the coming fall/winter!

I love these sneak peaks. I am both a bookseller and book blogger and these 'peaks' are such an important resource for me... For many of us here in NetGalley (I am sure.) :)

I don't like to read many YA novels so I love having these excerpts and reading to see what might be interesting. Before I Let Go sounds so good!

This is my first time checking out one of the Buzz Books compilations, and I'm so glad that I did! I learned about a lot of upcoming releases that I hadn't heard of, and they sound great. I also appreciate the "sorted by publisher" list, as it made it very simple to look up contact information to request ARCs for the ones that sounded interesting (which was well over half of the titles shown, for me). I'll be sure to check out the next Buzz Books YA compilation, too!

I loved the idea of this book, and it held up to my expectations it gave me an idea of books coming out that I might want to order for our library. The excerpts in the book were just enough to get you hooked and the mix of genres and types they chose to highlight were varied enough for all interests. I will make sure and check these out every season to see what is up and coming.
