Great synopsis of new books . Nice to be able to read an excerpt and decide if this is a book you would want to read.
I love when I see a new issue of Buzz Books, I look forward to reading every issue! I particularly love the links so that I can request the galley. I have quite a few new titles on my to-read list!
Buzz Books got me so buzzed for the fall/winter drop. I always use lists such as these to build my TBRs and as a base to order books from my library. I wish they would add hyperlinks to the books to easily save titles. Instead I had to switch between apps to go to Goodreads and save a book.
Guide with ideas of new books to read. Not really a book to read just a guide with ideas.
I received this from netgalley.
This is a nice compilation of excerpts of books being published in fall 2020/winter 2021. Looking through provides a great opportunity to find books to add to your TBR list. I look forward to these coming out seasonally.
While I don't think it's possible to review this in the traditional sense, I always appreciate the Buzz Books conglomerations. It's a great way to get a taste of different writing styles and discover new books that might otherwise pass you by. This is the first time I've read the Buzz Books on the NetGalley app, and it does make it very easy to request a review copy of a book if you're interested in it based on the excerpt.
I received this book free from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
I love to read Buzz Books every season. It's very useful the sneak peek of the upcoming books. You can select the books, the authors and the different genres. Also, you can easly select the book to be purchased..
I wasn't aware that there were excerpts for so many books in the Buzz Books! There are some great Fall/Winter books coming out!
As always, a fabulous resource!! Definitely found some new to me titles that i will be picking up and recommending to other.
This was a perfect way to get a taste of some of the anticipated titles, and I really enjoyed reading it. I can't wait for the next one to come!
A Great list of wonderful books coming out. So fun to read about these and sample. I. really enjoyed reading the Buzz books and look forward to more.
Great book recommendations and varied excerpts, especially the selection from J'nell Ciesielski, Beauty Among Ruins.
Great list with so many more books to look forward to. A very useful way to read a quick summary about a book and keep track of books that are being released in the coming months.
Good insight of the upcoming books. This was the first time I have had such insight so was good to know what to keep an eye out for,
A fun read to see what's coming up. As usual, there will be more books of interest than there is time available.
It's always great to hear about new books coming out and I look forward to each issue of Buzz Books.
For those who don't know what the 'Buzz Books'-catalogues of Publishers Lunch are all about (like me), just a little bit of clarification.
"Publishers Lunch is the book industry's 'daily essential read', shared with approximately 45,000 publishing people every day. Each report gathers together stories from all over the web and print of interest to the professional trade book community, along with original reporting, plus a little perspective and the occasional wisecrack added in."
Publishers Lunch also compiles seasonal Buzz Books-catalogues in which books which will probably create a buzz are included.
On the one hand these catalogues offer a simple overview of titles we should keep an eye on and on the other hand they also provide sneak previews for about 30 of those expected books which allow to see if they're appealing to you or not.

BUZZ BOOKS 2020: FALL/WINTER
Publishers Lunch's goal is to help you sift through the thousands of planned fall and winter releases thanks to their selection of what they think are among the most noteworthy titles, separated in four key categories: fiction, debut, non-fiction and young adult.
Not only bestselling authors as Ken Follett, Matt Haig, Jonathan Lethem, and Sue Miller are featured.
Exciting debut authors are put in the spotlight as well.
At the end of most excerpts, you will find a link to read or request the full galley from NetGalley.
These are the 30 titles for which a sneak peek is available (in my review on Goodreads these titles and authors are clickable):
1. Leave the world behind - Rumaan Alam

This catalogue contains lots of intriguing titles, some of which already figured on my TBR-list and others which were added now by browsing it.
Although I do like to find titles on my own and I clearly have a preference for books that are less known by the greater public, this catalogue was interesting because it put books on my radar that I hadn't heard of before.
Furthermore being able to read the sneak peeks of some of the mentioned titles was nice, because that way it was possible to see if the writing style was entirely to my liking.
A single point for improvement would be that the titles for which no sneak peek is available would be clickable so that a short content appears immediately. Otherwise I'm very satisfied with this source of inspiration.
*Thanks to NetGalley and Publishers Lunch for providing a digital copy of this catalogue in exchange for an honest review.
Great preview, enjoyed reading about all the upcoming books for fall and winter of 2020. We're going to need them!
Thank you for this useful information for book bloggers. I got a number of great reading options and books to review.
This was a great way to learn about new books coming out this fall. Each story has a brief synopsis, followed by an excerpt and then an author bio and publication information. I can’t wait to start reading many of the books that we’re excerpted here!
