This inaugural edition of Buzz Books: Young Adult provides substantial pre-publication excerpts from more than 20 forthcoming young adult and middle grade books.
Now everyone can share the same access to the newest YA voices the publishing industry is broadcasting for the fall/winter season.
You will find a full range of YA titles previewed here – dystopian, romance, fantasy, sci-fi, humor, literary and more – and you will even find some works for tweens and middle-grade readers. As always, many are sure to make bestseller and “best of” lists.
In addition to the excerpts, there’s a great round-up from Publishers Lunch of dozens of noteworthy fall/winter YA books to add to your must-have list. (Goodreads)
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!
What new YA reads are you looking forward to?
