Our sixth edition of Buzz Books: Young Adult provides the special excitement of Winter Institute and takes it even further with samples of the best in forthcoming young adult novels months ahead of their actual publication. (Goodreads)


My Review:

Buzz Books are one of my favorite ways to discover new authors, so I'm incredibly happy that this edition knocks it out of the ballpark with so many awesome reads! Here are some of the samples that really got my attention:

The One Memory of Flora Banks by Emily Barr reminded me a little of the movie 50 First Dates. Unlike the movie though, Flora's memory erases itself several times a day. Thankfully this didn't happen until she was ten years old so at least she has those long-term memories to help her get through the day. Then everything changes. She remembers something. A kiss. From her best friend's boyfriend. Uh-oh. Can't wait to read more and see what happens to Flora when she sets off to reconnect with the boy who gave her a new memory!

TBTB Secret Santa Exchange 2016

The Broke and the Bookish host a Secret Santa Exchange every year and it's one of my favorites! I love buying gifts for a fellow book lover and have loved everything I've received from this exchange. That being said, I think that my Secret Santa this year really knocked it out of the ballpark!

I mentioned that I loved penguins, so my Santa found a penguin card for me. Very cool!
