Thanks for the preview! Even more excited for the YA titles now. I already read Sometimes I Lie and cannot wait for others to get their hands on it so we can discuss! Such a great, psychological thriller. A number of great titles here :)

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

It contains an introduction followed by a section with a list of "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 and Buzz Books 2018: Young Adult Spring/Summer. I particularly enjoyed the excerpt for SOMETIMES I LIE by Alice Feeney.

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

Once again a very informative catalogue of the upcoming releases. I particularly enjoyed the exerpts of Twelve Steps To Normal, which was already on my radar, and Frat Girl. I think I will be checking out every Book Buzz issue that comes out!

Useful as always - good to get some extra focus on some of the titles that had already been mentioned in prior Buzz Books but drowned a bit in the masses. Thanks!

Fantastic as always, a top resource for book lovers everywhere! I never miss one - you cannot go wrong. Alice Feeney's "Sometimes I Lie" was already on my TBR but the excerpt was a welcome addition to the synopsis and has me even more certain that I'll love it. Much appreciated!

What an awesome way to introduce books to readers. Each book has a chapter or two for the reader to check out to see if they like the writing and want to read more. I requested two and wrote the rest down for later. Each excerpt usually has a link that the reader can click on that takes them to Netgalley where they can request the book! Such a brilliant idea.

To pass over an opportunity to read the latest Buzz Books seems rather silly to me. It takes very little time to work your way through it, and it provides such wonderful information about which books are coming out next. This March edition reminded me of a book I need to pre-order, and drew my attention to other goodies I was somehow unaware of. Buzz Books is always a "can't miss" for me. :)

Time to grab your copy of March 2018 Buzz Books Monthly from Publishers Lunch. These regular updates are a great source of ideas for future purchases and requests from NetGalley. Following a general format, this month's edition includes a list of soon-to be published books. Several are from familiar names -- for example, Tom Rachman's The Italian Teacher (Viking 3/20) or C. J. Box's The Disappeared (Putnam 3/27). I am looking forward to reading Memento Park (FSG, 3/13) by Mark Sarvas and I was Anastasia (Doubleday, 3/27) by Ariel Lawhon amongst others. This issue of Buzz Books also contained excerpts from several books, including some love stories, but I am most curious to read all of Kelly Roache's FRAT GIRL in which Cassie proposes to pledge Delta Tau Chi in order to afford college with a scholarship for researching the misogynistic behavior of the frat boy members.

As always, the March issue of Buzz Books Monthly does not disappoint. It contains excerpts from five novels and three YA novels, giving you a nice sample of what March has in store. In addition to the excerpts, there is also a listing of March publications. A great resource!

March is going to be filled with exciting new releases! I'm especially looking forward to getting my hands on Orphan Monster Spy and Frat Girl.

I love getting new editions of Buzz Books. The March 2018 edition had two books in particular that stuck out to me.

Sometimes I lie by Alice Feeney seems captivating. The cover is beautiful, with an image of a woman falling through space. There is something very compelling about the title as well. It makes me automatically assume that the narrator is unreliable. Overall it just sounds great. The narrator is in a coma, but she can hear what is happening around her, and wants to know how she ended up in the situation she is in. It certainly grabbed my attention and I can hardly wait to read it.


The second book that really grabbed my attention is one that I have seen the preview for once already. Orphan Monster Spy, by Matt Kileen. This book seems CRAZY fast paced. By the end of the preview (both times) I was anxious, which I feel is just about the best praise a book can get. I need to know what happens next!!

As usual - a great selection of books and genres to further weigh down my groaning TBR list! These Buzz Books never disappoint.

There are some really good books that are coming out this month (March 2018) that I am really excited for! The two that I am most looking forward to are listed below:

-Happiness (by Aminatta Forna): is a "masterful tale of love and loss, cruelty and kindness" where "Forna asks us to consider the interconnectedness of our lives, our coexistence with one another and all living creatures, and the true nature of happiness."

Sometimes I Lie (by Alice Feeney): I have heard a lot about this book and really want to read it... "There are three things you should know about me: 1. I'm in a coma. 2. My husband doesn't love me anymore. 3. Sometimes I lie."

Great titles upcoming for the Month of March. Some of which I am definitely interested in.

I love getting Buzz Books. It always helps me know what I might be interested in, what I might request, and what I HAVE TO GET MY HANDS ON!
My personal picks for this month are:
Sometimes I lie
The Heart Between Us
Twelve Steps to Normal

indispensable book to discover in greater length new books. The longer read enables me to get a better feeling for the story and get to know the style of the writer better. It is a great help to decide what to read next.
