Title: Buzz Books 2015: Young Adult Spring
Publisher: Publishers Lunch
Publication Date: January 23, 205
Summary (from Goodreads): This second edition of Buzz Books: Young Adult Spring provides substantial pre-publication excerpts from 26 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 spring/summer season.
Excerpts include new work from established giants of the field (Michael Buckley Sarah Dessen, David Levithan, Barry Lyga, and Carrie Ryan), an author best-known for her adult books (Alice Hoffman), and newsmakers including Paige McKenzie’s The Haunting Of Sunshine Girl, based on the hit YouTube series, and An Ember In the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir (already sold to Paramount Pictures in a major deal).
You will find a full range of YA titles previewed here —romance, fantasy, humor, literary and more — and you will find some works for tweens and middle-grade readers by award-winning authors such as Louis Sachar, Rebecca Stead, and Geoff Rodkey.
This is such a tremendous resource for anyone interested in reading young adult books. Excerpts from new novels from authors such as Katie Cotugno and Sarah Dessen can be found inside. Great teasers are packed into this one! I am definitely pretty excited to read 99 Days (Katie Cotugno) Nowhere But Here (Katie McGarry), and Goodbye Stranger (Rebecca Stead)! I am really excited for many of these books coming out in 2015. What 2015 book has you excited this year?
