I love reading Buzz Books! It's such a great way to get a preview of the books that are sure to be hits once published.

Some very tasty previews for titles soon to be released. Immediately going on my "want to read" list are Laura Bates' "The Burning," Jessica Anthony's "Enter the Aardvark," and Brit Bennett's "The Vanishing Half."

Ok I have to admit, I clicked on this book for the cover. Ding dong! I thought it was short stories hahaaa. Jokes on me. But this book gave me insight on new authors, New books coming out and so much more. I will be looking forward to the Fall/Winter edition! Great idea for the upcoming pizzazz books and debut authors.


A special thanks to NetGalley and Publishers Lunch Buzz Books for this ARC copy and also to NetGalley.

A wonderful and extensive glimpse into new books to be released over the next few months. The Buzz Books preview is extremely thorough and essential for anyone who takes their reviewing seriously. Apart from the extracts from books I've already heard of - I discovered some interesting new ones as well.

Thank you NetGalley for this handy giude!

Thank you NetGalley for providing me with this space to see the new and upcoming books. This tool is useful for bloggers and influencers looking forward to new releases and trying to determine which titles to request/add to reading lists. I enjoyed getting this preview. The links to make requests were also VERY helpful!

This is a fun, great way to preview upcoming books - a chapter or so of each anticipated book is shared - the range is lovely and diverse - something for everyone. Some genres I’m not into and while I didn’t end up going past a couple of paras of a few, I appreciated the opportunity to sample. There were some good ones and debut authors as well - always great to see new writers being published. A few in particular I’m eager to check out are The Death of Vivek Oji ( I recently listened to Akwaeke Emezi’s Freshwater, which was great), The Book of Longings, the Orphan Collector, and Sharks in the Time of Saviors. Thanks NetGalley and all the publishers for providing a much-anticipated window into Spring/Summer 2020.

A good mixture of excerpts...I wish that more anticipated titles had been included (such as an excerpt from The City We Became by N. K. Jemisin).

Thank you for the chance to read all these excerpts of books that will be coming out. My partner, on the other hand, does not send his thanks, and is not impressed that my "I have to read this book when it comes out" list has grown considerably.

As usual, Buzz Books provided helpful information about upcoming books in a way that allows prospective reviewers to get a real sense of a title in advance of publication.  The synopsis provided for review copies on NetGalley are wonderful, but there are so many options to choose from;  Buzz Books helps to focus our attention and the effort is really appreciated.  Many thanks!

This handy guide has put some new books on my radar! I am thankful to get this peek at what I'll be reading and what to watch out for in coming months

I look forward to this collection at the beginning of each publishing season.  It helps me plan my reading, get on the hold list early at the library, look for author events at local indies, etc..  I've found out one additional benefit of the Buzz Books collection: going back a year later to see how the forecast played out.  What books were hits?  What books lived up to my expectations?  What books did I miss and now want to read?  The look back is proving to be as enjoyable as the preview.

Another great season of books - I have added so many to my 'to-read' pile. Glad to see so many new authors!

Thank you for the opportunity to check out these samples! So many great books to look forward to; both ones I was already anticipating and some I hadn't heard of. Very exciting to get a peek at Chosen Ones!

I always tend to like novels more than short stories, excerpts, magazines and other non-fiction works. But this book is an exception. I love this book so much!!! This book helped me set up most of my TBR (to be read)  list. All the excerpts in this book were unique and were written by unique authors. I am really excited about the upcoming releases and also the upcoming Buzz Books. Its like a guide for all the bookworms out there!
I highly recommend this book.
