This is a great book to find out what patrons might want to see on the shelves. As a person who is going to be in charge of adding books to the library's collection, this has been extremely helpful.

I really enjoyed going through Buzz Books: 2014 YA I Got to read a lot of excepts from different books and even found a bunch to add to my TBR shelf. This was very informative and helpful. I never knew there was a book/magazine like this and I am really glad I got the opportunity to browse through it!

Really love these collections, as it's a great way to sample several of the upcoming buzz-worthy titles! This is the first all YA collection, which is one of my favorite genres! I read at least part of each story, but moved on to the next if it didn't grab my attention.

Here are the ones that grabbed my attention and have been added to my wishlist:
*Vivian Apple at the End of the World by Katie Coyle - release date Jan 6th, 2015
*Talon by Julie Kagawa - release date Oct 28th, 2014
*I'll Give You the Sun by Jandy Nelson - release date Sept 16th, 2014
*King Dork Approximately by Frank Portman - release date Sept 9th, 2014
*The Accidental Highwayman by Ben Tripp - release date Oct 14th, 2014
*Afterworlds by Scott Westerfeld - release date Sept 23rd, 2014
*Falling Into Place by Amy Zhang - release date Sept 9th, 2014

Some of these I've already heard of, but several are new to me and I might not have picked them up otherwise. That's why I love these samplers!

This is such a cool sampler, I discovered so many books through this, including ones from authors that I love that I didn't know had new books coming out. I can't wait to read a lot of these and this was a great way to find books to read for my blog.

This is such a great tool for librarians looking to stay on top of the big YA books coming out this year. I love that the excerpts are decent-sized chunks, as opposed to just a few paragraphs or a couple pages.

Shared this with my students. They loved all the sneak peeks. I'm looking forward to the next Buzz Books for YA.

Love Buzz Books! This is a wonderful concept that I hope will continue. It's a great way to browse many books in a short time making collection development more efficient. I'm making my list of books to recommend to the libraries I work with and can confidently talk about these titles with the library teens. Thanks for the opportunity to view this e-book!

Thank you so much for allowing me to receive this edition of Buzz Books. I am so excited for so many of these novels and because of the amazing excerpts I am now eagerly awaiting their release. I am especially excited for Becca Fitzpatricks latest novel Black Ice. The excerpt gave away just the correct amount of information to make me so very excited for a new series from the Hush, Hush author. I also look forward to Jandy Nelsons and Scott Westerfeilds latest works. I look forward to these novels being released in fall as the characters and worlds created in each of the novels captured my attention and my imagination. I am very excited for the release of these novels and hope they live up to the expectations this excerpt has provided.

A really like that is book is available. Being a librarian sometimes it is hard to stay on top of current materials, especially young adult books.

Very much enjoyed all of the information available in this book regarding Young Adult Literature. I have referenced this book for many reasons from personal use to professional use regarding my blog and my current position as a program developer for Young Adults at a city Library.

Very well put together. Everything was very well presented and there's a lot of variety. Would certainly purchase this book (and the others as well) for myself or for work.
