      I enjoyed this sneak peek at some upcoming Spring and Summer books. I especially enjoyed the Young Adult section. My favorite excerpt was from Half Bad by Sally Green. Black witches, white witches, and half breeds. There's a male protagonist half breed whose life of persecution makes Harry Potter's cupboard under the stairs look like a dream vacation home. The summary & excerpt got me excited to read the book. Other notable Young Adult titles were Tease by Amanda Maciel, A Death Struck Year [...]

      This book was what it says on the front cover. It covers 40 top releases for Spring 2014. It even provide excerpts from the books listed which was really nice. My issues was that it didn't contain hardly any of the books that I am waiting for. They really need to add adult or new adult romances. It was useful but could have been better.

      NETGALLEY FREE GIVE AWAYBook Buzz combines the best of SOOOOO many worlds. Firstly we have a billion little introductions to up-in-coming literature from a wide spread of genre and writing styles. Some of these authors were little secrets, hidden gems that exploded on the pages, while others were familiar, but startled with a different shape. Secondly, most if not all of these segments are available in full from Netgalley. We have Jojo Moyes, who in my opinion will never do, can never do any wro [...]

      Review: Buzz Books 2014 Spring/Summer by Publishers Lunch This is an informative book, containing excerpts from forty books published in 2014.Having the opportunity to read these excerpts and get a real feel of whether I am likely to enjoy that book is just fantastic. If I decide I would like to read any of the books, I have had the experience of already reading a reasonably-lengths except.A brilliant idea, I'm looking forward to when the next Buzz Books is published.

      There is nothing like being the first to sample an exciting new book before it is published! Buzz Books 2014 compiles excerpts from 40 new books, in all genres, such as YA, Literary Fiction, Historical Fiction, Murder Mystery, and Non-Fiction etc. Like a good anthology, a preview of upcoming books gives one the opportunity to discover an author that they may not of heard of otherwise. In this instance, I was very happy to discover the work of Greg Iles and his superb novel Natchez Burning. The i [...]

      BUZZ BOOKS got my attention right away. It's a tool that provides excellent insight into forthcoming titles. It's always exciting to be able to take a peek into the future. I love knowing what books are going to sizzle my imagination before they even hit the shelves!The document itself rises expectation because it's obvious how passionate the people who made it are about their products. The fact that it's divided into sections of different genres comes really handy.The introduction builds mement [...]

      Really enjoy buzz books, as they're a great way to sample some of the best new releases without having to track down and download them one by one. Plus, there's the added benefit of knowing that these titles are hand-selected as the best of the best!I read at least some of each story, some fully and some I just skimmed. I'm to the point where I can tell within a few pages if something is to my liking or not. Very few books are the exception to my "grab me on the first page" rule, so I move on to [...]

      Once again, I am reviewing an ebook that is a few years old now; but as i've said in my previous review on Buzz Books 2013, it never hurts to discover new books.The book presents you with 40 books that is broken down into 4 major parts: Fiction, Debut Fiction, Nonfiction, and Young Adult. The setup of this book was easy to follow. If a book did not interest you, you can skip to the next one with ease. There was a brief summary and an excerpt of the first few pages attached to each book to make i [...]

    12. Zeb Kantrowitz on said:

      For me the most important part of this book is the New Author section. This is a great chance to get a read on the style and content of the books of first time authors that are thought worthy to be published by some of the major publishing houses. Considering the amount of time and money that is put into finding and publishing new authors, you would have to think that these are well constructed, thought out and prepared/edited novels.It's also a pleasure to get a first look at novels that are fo [...]

It covers everything from nonfiction, fiction, and young adult. There are also excerpts from the new books. I found this book a great way to find out about new books coming out this year.

      This is my first experience with Buzz Books and I am glad I discovered it. I was able to read excerpts from several titles I had heard of and was curious about such as the new Lemony Snicket and Dorothy Must Die. I also read the samples from the rest of the YA/Children's books included to get an idea of which titles I might want to read in full or purchase for my library's collection. I would recommend this for any librarian who wants to get a glimpse of the new titles coming soon. Even if the t [...]

    15. Amanda on said:

      Wow that took a while to get through! I love these, I think it's a great way to see what's coming out and find some great books. The Fall/Winter edition is how I found The Rosie Project which ended up being one of my favorite books of all time. I skipped a few that I didn't have any interest at all in and I skipped a few books that seemed too juvenile for me but I also found some great ones that I can't wait to finish. Up first, 2 A.M. at The Cat's Pajamas! You can find these on for a limited t [...]

    16. Riya on said:

      I really like the concept of this book. It was essentially a simple and easy way to either find new books I'm interested in, and to start some of these books! I definitely added a bunch more books to my to-read shelf, and I can't wait for the next one. I mainly read from the YA section, but I did read a few from each of the other sections if the synopsis interested me. I definitely think that everyone should try it, because although the books in it aren't the most famous or most-anticipated ones [...]

      *I got this book from Netgalley. Thank you, Buzz Books*This was really interesting. I loved the excerpts from the books because mpre often than not when I request an egalley, it's a gamble. Sometimes I'll just get stuck with a book I don't like and feel guilty about it.The one thing I would have liked better would have been to find more books that were in my preffered genres. Many of the books were literary fiction oriented and while I'm trying to break into that genre, I still do most of my rea [...]

    18. Rachel on said:

      A must read for anyone interested in books, the Buzz Books highlights not only well recieved and eagerly awaited author's work but brings forward lesser known ones to highlight. I love the format, they give just enough to get you interested then send you off lookign for the books! A firm winner in my eyes, something I look forward to and use to guide my reading choices annually. Many thanks Netgalley for the opportunity to read this!

    19. Ann on said:

      I absolutely love this type of book. I always find new authors I want to read and get a glimpse of books that I would never usually pick up to read. They picked 40 great titles for this title. From some well known authors like Jojo Moyes, Robyn Carr and Maggie Shipstead to some new authors like Laline Paull, and Rebecca Rotert. Something for everyone. Always look for the new edition which is now out for the winter.

    20. Nicki Markus on said:

      Once more Buzz Books provides a scintillating glimpse at some of the hot new releases coming our way in 2014. The sneak peeks offer a little something for everyone with a range of fiction, non-fiction and YA excerpts.I certainly found a couple I will be requesting on NetGalley and/or looking out for in the shops in the coming months.I received this book as a free e-book copy via NetGalley.

    21. Elizabeth on said:

      Buzz Books 2014 is a preview of books coming out this year. I loved reading the excerpts and putting those I want to read on my "to read" list. There are so many great books coming out. JoJo Moyes new book is of particular interest to me. Thank you to NetGalley for the opportunity to read and review this book.

    22. Nancy on said:

      From the 40 titles excerpted I found 5 or 6 that I wanted to request to read the full story and one nonfiction that I had already completed. Many of the excerpts are from first time authors. Some of the genres are ones that I would not normally select which no doubt affected my three star rating.

    23. BeaCharmed on said:

      Like previous editions, it fails to include a decent sampling of genre books but it's otherwise a good selection. I even added two of the titles to my wishlist.

    24. Arra Abella on said:

      Great sneak peek once again. This review might be late but i'm still looking forward to read the titles I find interesting.
