Buzz Books 2015: Young Adult Fall/Winter is a collection of 20 excerpts from upcoming new releases in the young adult book world. They are all different genres. There’s something in here for everyone. Some of them, like A History of Glitter and Blood, have some swearing in them. It didn’t bother me, but I know some readers don’t like that. Two of them (A History of Glitter and Blood and This is How it Ends) have lgbt characters and others deal with subjects like rape and body image.
My favorite excerpts were from A History of Glitter and Blood, This is How it Ends and Not if I See You First.
A History of Glitter and Blood had one of the longer excerpts in the book and I like that it combines the story with drawings, journal entries and other things.
This is How it Ends is about a school shooting and it chronicles what the four main characters were doing in the time leading up to, during and after the shooting.
Not if I See You First is about a blind girl dealing with the loss of her father and changes at school as another school merges with hers.
I have added most of the titles to my “Want to Read” list on Goodreads and some are even doing giveaways. Out of the 20 excerpts, there were only 2 or 3 that I wouldn’t consider reading the rest of. The book is currently available for free from Amazon and other e-book retailers. I’ll be reading more from the Buzz Books series in the future.
