Publisher: Publishers Lunch
This fourth edition of Buzz Books: Young Adult provides substantial pre-publication excerpts from 20 forthcoming young adult books. Now everyone can share the same access to the newest YA voices the publishing industry is broadcasting for the spring/summer season.(Goodreads)
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!
