My Review:

Buzz Books are one of my favorite ways to discover new-to-me books and authors! 
While I may not read every single word of every single sample, I read enough to know if I’m going to like the story or not. That’s the beauty of these samplers – there’s something for everyone!


Here are the samples that stood out for me this time:

My Lady Jane by Cynthia Hand, Brodi Ashton, and Jodi Meadows. A retelling of Lady Jane Grey’s story, but with a shapeshifter twist! The excerpt was incredibly intriguing, and I’m a sucker for anything to do with the King Henry VIII and Queen Elizabeth I era!

Didn’t think I would like The Progeny (by Tosca Lee) after reading the synopsis, but the excerpt really grabbed my interest! It’s about a descendant of a notorious serial killer who is being hunted by a mysterious group. Sounds like a fascinating thriller, and I’ve already requested a review copy!

Another surprise was how much I enjoyed And I Darken by Kiersten White. A historical novel set in the 15th century, featuring the children of Vlad the Impaler. I don’t usually read historicals, but the characters really leapt off the page!

Already looking forward to the Fall/Winter sampler, as I love discovering new reads!
