Loved this! A great way to start day three of #athomeYALC. I can’t wait to read Holly Bourne’s 10th Usborne title in Spring!
Thank you to Usbourne for this sampler, was great to get the opportunity to sample some of the upcoming titles and get excited for some future releases.
Loved this zine from Usborne for #athomeYALC. I am so excited about all the amazing books coming out in 2021 from Usborne!
Thank you Usborne for making this available digitally! It was great to read on what would have been YALC weekend!
Enjoyable and fun read! Great way to deal with the post #AtHomeYALC blues. Can't wait to read some of these books in full.
Wonderful idea so we don’t miss out on YALC and great to read some excerpts from books on my radar previously, some that are now on it. Can’t wait for them to devour in full. Fabulous books ahead
I thoroughly enjoyed dipping my toe into some past, present and upcoming titles from Usbourne YA. This magazine had covers, quizzes, Q&As with authors and extracts from a tonne of books. A great place to get reading inspiration. Thank you!
A great little magazine promoting some wonderful upcoming YA releases. I have added some to my TBR and can't wait to get to them.
I'm so excited for all of these books, they sound so good! I'm so glad they made these samplers available!
This is a great magazine with some really good recommendations. Definitely worth checking out to see the latest YA books.
This is just the perfect magazine for the teens of today who want a quick fix. It offers mini synopsis of books and their covers with a flow chart to help you choose a book that will suit. Bright, clean format makes it accessible to all in digestible chunks. A few fun articles (interview with Holly Bourne and a crossword) makes it more than a marketing tool. I love how it pitches similar but different titles against each other on the page. Impressed and would recommend it if you are looking for a quick way to filter your next read. It helped me identify one my daughter (reluctant reader!) will enjoy and I'll be off to buy that first thing tomorrow. I'm not sure how often this magazine is produced but I am keen to subscribe and have it both at home and in my school library.
This is a great little magazine for fans of YA - I loved the sneak peeks of new books, the brain teasing activities and the author interviews.
I shared this with my 14 and 16 year old nieces who thought it was a great magazine for entertainment and ideas for their book wish lists.
A nice little collection of blurbs and extracts from YA books, with a good variety of genres. Will certainly look into some of these!
