An amazing collection of upcoming releases for the Spring/Summer of 2020! The previews for each book are definitely helpful and peaked my interest in a bunch of releases. I am definitely adding a lot of these books onto my TBR.

These are always my favorite, just because I get to see so many more books that are coming out. It’s so hard to find new books, because there are so many that come out and I usually stick to YA. I’m hoping to get more into new adult this year and find some new gems.

I found eight excerpts I really enjoyed. I have requested two of them. I added the others to my wish list. I am the most excited about The Orphan Collector by Ellen Marie Wiseman.

This has been my first opportunity to view Buzz Books, and reading the excerpts for 2020: Spring/Summer has been exciting and worthwhile. I have already received approval for one of my requests, and hope to hear back from more soon!
What a great way to plan my book reading throughout this new year.
Thanks #NetGalley and #Publishers. You've introduced me to many new authours and I look forward to their releases.

If you love reading about new releases from established authors and discovering new books from upcoming authors - if you enjoy exploring new genres but prefer sampling books before you commit to reading them - then rush over to Netgalley and pick up a copy of the Buzz Books Great Reads 2020 Spring/Summer sampler. This is my first introduction to this seasonal sampler and seriously, I'm not sure how I ever lived without it!

This book contains a book synopsis and introductory chapters for dozens of upcoming books that you couldn't otherwise preview (since they won't be released for several months). As I'm reading through the sampler, I'm making a list of the books that I would like to read. In the process, I am not only finding new authors but I'm also discovering new publishers. As a book blogger, book reviewer and an avid reader, these are very exciting discoveries to make!

Another great thing about this sampler is that it is available as a "read now" option so you don't have to wait to get approved through Netgalley. Direct links are included so that you can immediately request the books you are interested in. Publicity/release information that is helpful to bloggers, reviewers and librarians are included at the end of each preview.

I highly recommend this book and will be placing future editions of this sample on my "must read" list!

This expansive resource is available at no charge at most on-line bookstores.  It includes extensive listings of titles that are coming out in all categories along with a number of book excerpts.  A few fiction titles that are forthcoming are those authored by David Nicholls, Katherine Reay, Susan Wiggs, Barbara Delinsky, Beatriz Williams, Alexander McCall Smith and Scott Turow.  There are books forthcoming fro Anne Tyler, Gail Godwin, and more. 

Readers can look at titles by category; for fiction this includes big books, emerging authors, debut novels, commercial fiction and more.  Non-fiction seemed to me to include lots of political titles and titles about the struggles and triumphs of women. 

Also take a look at biography and memoirs including books by Jennifer Finney Boyland, David Chang , Elijah Cummings and more. In addition,  as as noted above, there are fairly lengthy excerpts from some forthcoming titles.


Take a little time to see what you might like to read this spring.  You will find authors both old and new.


Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for this title in exchange for an honest review.  I honesty love this compilation.

interesting to know that publishers can make their releases available in advance. In Brazil it is quite different.

This is a great asset for those of us who love to talk books and share books.  Please keep doing this!

A wide variety of authors and books that are yet to be released. This is a sneak peak with excerpts . It has helped to increase my want to read list. 
This collection gives me the option to weed through and find books for my own library.

It is always a joy to see a new BUZZ Book appear on NetGalleyl

It is a gift and a blessing from an organization that helps writers, librarians, reviewers and book bloggers alike.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!!!

I’m really glad there are a lot of titles included in this and are separated into four categories (Fiction, Debut, Non-Fiction, Young Adult). However, I wish Young Adult would still have its separate Buzz Books release like the previous years. It’s what I look forward to the most and there are only a few titles in this one. Unfortunately, only two really caught my attention (Sweet Sorrow and Chosen Ones). I am still thinking whether I would read them.

Looking forward to more interesting titles in the next release!

As always, a great way to be ahead of the curve and know what books are coming out soon! Lots of categories and options to preview. Thanks, Net Galley and Buzz Books!

Consistently one of the best resources for what's heading to the bookshelves in the upcoming season. The Buzz Books editions are an inclusive and wide-ranging sneak peek into all of the most interesting new titles from commercial to indie authors, both those well-loved and those making their debut. My TBR list grows exponentially ever time a new edition is released.

Wonderful look at some upcoming books - enough previews to whet my appetite for a number of books! The notes at the end off each preview are not as useful to me these days, not being a member of the bookselling business, but that's also pretty interesting to read, to see how much of a push each publisher is giving their book(s).
