This book is full of excerpts for the upcoming winter season. Several new first time authors are included as well as a wider spread of voices like from India and Afghanistan. The excerpts are long enough to get a good feeling of the content and mor important ly the style and voice of the author. This  makes it easy to decide which books Inwould like to read in full length.This Buzz Books  are useful to make informed choices about what to read.

Buzzbooks are very often some of my favorite books to review. I love getting little snippets of multiple books as I build my forever growing TBR pile. A few books that stuck out to me from this particular edition are: 

The Travelling Cat Chronicles -  Lets start with the cover! The cover is beautiful. from the light blue background to the bright white cat and fall leaves, it captivated me. It looks like a cozy fall read before you ever open the book. 
I adore cats, so the idea of a cozy novel told through the eyes of a cat drew me in immediately. I would love to read this novel cover to cover and spend some time in the world of this cat as Arikawa sees it.


Daughter of a Daughter of a Queen - I honestly don't have much to say about this book. I knew I wanted to read it by the end of the description before I ever started the preview. A story about a slave woman secretly serving with the Buffalo Soldiers?! YES PLEASE


The Dream Daughter - This cover is insanely beautiful. Not to mention, right there on the cover it says "Diane Chamberlain" I will read literally anything the woman writes. I can hardly wait to get my hands on this one!

The Boy at the Keyhole - I am a sucker for a creeper read, which this promises to be. And creepy books about little kids are always creepier. Sign. Me. Up.


Listen to the Marriage - This book sounds intriguing. A failing marriage seen through therapy visits. Although, I must say, something about the writing style feels a little... suspect. I can't help but think there is a lot more going on than just a failing marriage and visits to a therapist. I can't wait to see what twists and turns are hiding in this one. 

Cross Her Heart - Honestly, this is another one where just knowing the author was enough for me. A new Sarah Pinborough novel was all I needed to know that this story will keep me on the edge of my seat gnawing my nails off.

The Dinner List - Clearly this reading season is looking to be incredible because I am looking forward to more books than I felt on the fence about. The Dinner List looks magical. Its the classic "who would you have dinner with dead or alive" question answered in a novel. I can't wait to curl up with this on a rainy winter afternoon. 

Freefall - This debut novel captured me from the first page. This is an author who knows how to convey a sense of urgency. I can't help but thing this will be a book that leaves readers gripping their novel till early hours of the morning because they can't quite set it down. I will absolutely be watching for this one to hit shelves in January.

Chariot on the Mountain - The second book featuring slavery that sucked me in was Chariot on the Mountain. This is probably top three in the books I am most excited to see come out. It promises to be very well written, well researched, historical fiction. 

Witness - Come. On. Someone who interviewed Elie Wisel wrote a book!? This is going to be an amazing inspiring non fiction experience.



Seriously, if I took the time to detail every book that is coming out this season that looks incredible, this would be way too long to hold anyone's attention. Those are the books I am the most excited about. Fall/Winter in my experience, has always been the best season for new books and 2018 does not look like it will be disappointing. Happy reading everyone!

I love reading the Buzz Books every season. They're always full of books that I add to my never ending "to-read" list. I'm also so happy that this one wasn't filled with a bunch of political and social justice books, which is SO refreshing!

This was a great way to get a sense of some of the top books coming out soon. I loved being able to read the first chapter or two of each book picked to get a sense of the author's writing style and story!

Buzz books are great for learning about the new books coming out. I love the sneak peaks and how I can read snippets of the stories from both known and unknown authors. I love it. I will definitely be checking these out more from now on and choosing books from here. It’s much easier.

Love this Fall/Winter preview as it helps aid in creating a TBR list for the cooler months when I do most of my reading.

Summaries and sneak peaks help me better decide which titles are must reads.

Excellent resource!  I enjoy watching movie trailers to decide which films to watch and this is the same idea for books.  I was pleased with the multitude of exciting choices as well as the generous length of many of the excerpts.  I've found several books that I will read based on the Buzz Books list.

Love getting the buzz books every quarter and load up my TBR with the titles therein. If you're interested in understanding the commercialism of a book, these books will help you see why they're buzz-worthy and give you some insight into what publishers are acquiring.

These are such a good resource for you to find books that you would not normally choose for your self. I'm always excited to see what's inside when a new one is released.

This is a helpful resource for upcoming books.  It is nicely laid out to distinguish between fiction, non-fiction, and debut books.  Each book summary contains a preview chapter of the book to give you a sample of the writing.  There is also a section for each book about the author which provides information about the author such as any awards or awards they have been nominated for.  It also give the applicable publishing information as to pub date, isbn, publisher.
