I'm glad I stumbled upon the Buzz Books Great Reads for Fall/Winter 2020. It contains books of interest that will be published later on in the year and includes excerpts of the books that they believe will do well. They have quite a selection to chose from and this is a great resource to see what's coming!!

Some great books on offer here - as usual the standard is extremely high. Unusually though, only one of the books I clicked through on was available to request - hopefully there's better luck next time.
Regardless of my bad luck with requestable books, I still look forward to these Buzz collections twice a year - they're not only a great sampler of upcoming releases,  but a remarkably accurate market gauge.

I really enjoyed being able to read snippets from some of the most anticipated upcoming releases! I love historical fiction so I found The Chanel Sisters by Judithe Little to be my favorite of all the excerpts. It reminded me a lot of City or Girls and The Gown, both of which I adored. I also was so intrigued by the writing in Danielle Evans’ The Office of Historical Corrections. I don’t typically read short stories but I’m hooked on her storytelling.

Some other favorites that I’ve added to my TBR are: When the Apricots Bloom by Gina Wilkinson, Three Ordinary Girls by Tim Brady, and Monogamy by Sue Miller.

I always love seeing the new / next season’s release of Buzz Books and finding out which of my favourite authors have new books coming out, those new-to-me authors who I’ve been meaning to read, as well as getting a chance for a peek inside some of these books to be released in the coming season, Fall / Winter.

There are many, many more books listed, some with excerpts, although not the majority, but it helps me at least attempt to plan out the coming months of reading.

A very interesting publication.  I liked the fact that there was a comprehensive list of all upcoming publications at the beginning. A lot of information to absorb about upcoming releases.

As always, each edition of Buzz Book is an appetizer, a sampling of what’s to come in literary offerings. The fall/winter edition  lived up to expectations, giving readers a taste of what’s ahead. Thank you for the peek at readers’ upcoming fine dining.

It's always good to have this digital download so I can while away the time when I'm waiting somewhere, pining over more and more books. 

Thank you to Publishers Lunch/BUZZ BOOKS and NetGalley for this ARC.

I do really like getting to sample chapters and excerpts, as well as getting to hear about other upcoming releases. I was reading through some of the upcoming titles and saw so many wonderful author's names that I recognized. I was so excited to see that there will be a new Alice Hoffman book being released that's a prequel to Pratical Magic. I may have squealed a bit when I saw that. I was a bit disappointed though that they did not choose that as one of the titles to elaborate on and include a spotlight for. I feel pike maybe they should split the different genres into different sampler galleys so that more of each type can be featured. Thatd be especially helpful for those like myself who are not interested in some of the genres featured.

I have been anxiously awaiting this issue of Buzz Books! I flew through this one looking for favorite authors and checking out debut and new to me authors. I've added to my TBR and requested titles that are now available on NetGalley.
