NetGalley Review: Young Adult Summer Spring Excerpts

Buzz Books 2016 Young Adult Spring/Summer - Publishers Lunch

So as of right now this book is free on


I have not thought to look into a sample book of excerpts. I actually decided to give this a read and see if I could find some books that I could add to my list. I have to say out of all the books I actually only enjoyed about three of them.

All of the authors within this story are new to me so that was nice though I have only heard of one of the authors but never had read one of her books. 

The first excerpt I enjoyed was With Malice by Eileen Cook. It is about a young girl who wakes up with no memory of what happened to her or what happened to her best friend. Though she slowly learns that something terrible happened and that she may have been the cause of it. This story really pulled me in from the beginning and I was sad when it ended I actually wanted a whole lot more. 

Story two was The Progeny by Tosca Lee Emily Jacobs has no memory of her past or who she really is. So what quest does she have to be on that will bring her to the underground of Europe. That is something that the books leaves you wondering about. I can't imagine not remembering my past or anything it would be a bit scary but it seems the author gives us a bit of mystery within the excerpt that will for sure want you reading more.

The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight now this was seems like it could be a good book. Wylie hasn't heard from her best friend Cassie and she is worried that something has happened. When her mother ends up at her front door with no shoes on because she hasn't seen Cassie Wylie knows something is wrong but will she find out the answers or even find Cassie before it is too late?

Now some of the stories didn't pull me in but just because they were not for me doesn't mean that wouldn't be for you. I really like how we get to read some excerpts before we go to either buy the book or borrow the book. 


All of the books within this book of excerpt range from magical, to romance, adventure. So you may find something within that will call you to read it.
