Buzz Books 2015: Young Adult Fall/Winter

Buzz Books 2015: Young Adult Fall/Winter - Publishers Lunch Book provided from Netgalley

The Thing About Jellyfish: Really good premise. I loved the writing style. It was beautiful. Went straight to Netgalley to request the book.

These Shallow Graves: The dialogue felt forced and the writing style was not my cup of tea. As far as the plot goes, I'm confused. I didn't really get what it was about.

Inherit the Stars: So good! Immediately downloaded the whole book from Netgalley. Very promising YA sci-fi novel that I can't wait to read.

The Accident Season: Quite funny, but not a book I'll be reading, as it seemed to be a bit dull in the storyline.

Nightfall: This is supposed to be a horror/thriller, but that's not the vibe I got from it. The writing style somehow was too simple.

What We Saw: At first I thought this would be a horror story as well (based on the cover), but I've since learned it's about rape etc. I feel like the excerpt was way too short since not much happened. I'm curious towards this book, but this excerpts felt flat to me.

Illuminae: Very confusing. I pretty much had no idea what was going on. I guess it'll be clearer later on in the book (hopefully), but as it is now, I have no intensions to read on. All the 'attached files' didn't work too well in the earc which only added to the confusion, but I'm pretty sure that'll be sorted out before the book comes out. Maybe this is also the reasn I didn't get what I read of this book.

This Raging Light: What is up with this writing style? It sure is special and not quite my cup of tea. Within three pages it's just all over the place. I think this book is aimed at age 12-15. I certainly felt too old for this book, which is fine.

Not If I See You First: Aww. This one was so sweet! Definitely a must read. I love Parker Grant already! ♥

A Step Toward Falling: Hmm. Not sure about this one. I really wanted to like it because I loved [b:Say What You Will|18599754|Say What You Will|Cammie McGovern|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1392738015s/18599754.jpg|26365948] by the author, but I feel ilke this one's too similar to that book :/

A History Of Glitter and Blood: This one was great! I absolutely loved the writing style, it was so so good and very unique. It definitely had some LOL-moments! Yes, I'm looking at you, end of chapter one! Oh dear... :'D Definitely a must read!!

Dumplin': It has potential, but it was too short for me to form an opinion.

The Rest Of Us Just Live Here: Okay, it seemed pretty good, but I don't think I'll be reading it because of my experience with [b:The Knife of Never Letting Go|2118745|The Knife of Never Letting Go (Chaos Walking, #1)|Patrick Ness|https://d.gr-assets.com/books/1277071696s/2118745.jpg|2124180] by the same author. However, if you've read both books, please answer this: Any animal deaths in this book? Chances are I might read the book if I know the answer to this question.

The Shrunken Head: I didn't really expect much from this book, because the two other books by [a:Lauren Oliver|2936493|Lauren Oliver|https://d.gr-assets.com/authors/1416335442p2/2936493.jpg] that I've read, I didn't really like. This one though...pretty good! I can easily imagine reading it to my future kids! I probably won't be reading it myself.

Are You Still There: ASDFGH!!!!! I need this book. Now. Gimme gimme gimme! Seriously. So good!!! *wanders off to Netgalley*

Hello, Goodbye, And Everything In Between: Sweet little contemporary romance excerpt. I'll probably read the book sometime this summer :)
