Buzz Books 2021: Fall/Winter is a huge collection of excerpts from the most highly anticipated releases for the second half of 2021. I loved learning about new novels and reading samples. Thank you NetGalley and the publishers for providing this great collection.

It's time for Publishers Lunch Buzz Books 2021 list of Fall/Winter Great Reads. This installment contains a literary who's who, intriguing debuts, and a wide, diverse breadth of topics within Fiction, Non-Fiction, and YA. With authors like Patti Callahan, Anna Pitoniak, Naomi Krupitsky, and Jen Calonita, readers are in a for a real treat. The long excerpts give a generous snapshot of forthcoming content. And links to request the full titles are also included. Librarians in the know do not order featured authors without this essential booklet

Great resource for discovering upcoming releases from favorite and debut authors. Added some new ones to my TBR after reading this guide.

These collections with excerpts from forthcoming books are excellent.  As a fan of historical fiction, I'm especially looking forward to the novels by Natasha Lester, Lauren Groff, Lorena Hughes, and Patti Callahan. As a librarian, I  have a head start on books that readers will be wanting to get their hands on.  I also definitely appreciate having the books' publicity contacts included.

I am always eager to read this collection of excerpts. This group doesn’t disappoint! I’m already loving Big Boned and Daughter of the Deep. Both have me hooked. I am also loving the Stranger in the Lifeboat and Friends like these. I’ll be sure to keep an eye out for when they are released. This has so many cool and interesting stories that I can’t wait to devour. Thanks so much to NetGalley and the Publishers for these summaries and excerpts. Many of these books I hadn’t come across so I’m glad to see them included in this collection.

I always look forward to the biannual Buzz Books editions for the coming seasons.  They provide a comprehensive summary of books being published in the subsequent months. They help me add to my “To Read” list and give me something to anticipate  in advance.

Buzz feedback is an invaluable tool I use to decide whether or not to purchase a book for our library as well as a great way to acquaint myself with new authors.

Gifted arc from the publishers lunch and NetGalley.

Wonderful selection of different books to sample, including Debut novels.  However, I would have liked to see Cozy Mysteries included.  

Though my favorite authors were not included, I found a few books that I look forward to reading like the non fiction book by Jane Goodall and the history novel about Daniel Boone's daughter.

This is a very exciting preview of the great books that are coming out. I perused the young adult selection and I'm very excited for all of them, especially Rick Riordan's new, non-mythology book, as a long time Riordan fan. I'm also very excited for Ayana Gray's Beasts of Prey, which I hadn't heard of before, but now I'm intrigued.

Another epic collection of previews and snippets from Publisher's Weekly. So much wonder on the horizon for Fall/Winter. Thanks for the sneak peek.

I read this ARC for an honest review
All thoughts and opinions are mine

I absolutely love these volumes and always look out for them

I like being able to read excerpts for new books and love to then be able to make choices for future buys

I use the Buzz Books as a valuable resource throughout the slated season and appreciate the time and effort invested, to compile such a comprehensive list. In a time where there are SO many great reads (and so little time to read them all) I use these guides to meticulously curate my TBR list for the upcoming reading season. As a new bookstagrammer, it is even more important to me to choose wisely! Thank you.

This Buzz Book is the perfect way to preview books that are already on my list to read, and to discover new authors.  The samples also are a great exposure to new voices, and also new topics and genres. 

A great way to add to your TBR list!

I always look forward to the Buzz Books anthology.  It is a comprehensive guide to new fiction and organized so that reader's can easily find books in their wheelhouse.  Sectioned according to genre with special designation for new and emerging authors, I always find a host of books to enjoy.  Besides having excerpts from slect titles, another advantage of Buzz Books is direct links and sometimes widgets to highlighted works.  The only downside is that your TBR is sure to explode. 

ILooking forward to when Jonas's Vladimir and Jessup White's Reclamation: Sally Hemings, Thomas Jefferson, and a Descendant's Search for Her Family's Legacy are available for request.

These are a fantastic early insight into upcoming releases, and gives a great overview to popular authors, debut authors, and then within fiction and non fiction. I have screenshot all my most anticipated releases and cannot wait for them! Thanks Publishers Lunch for showing them to us!

I love this sampler because it always introduces me to at least one new unexpected author whose blurb, genre, or cover might ordinarily not have made me pick the book up. This time, two such highlights include the latest Thursday Murder Club book (whose cover made it look too cozy for my tastes, but I love the author’s voice), and a story of two Mafia daughters in Red Hook (I almost never read mob books, but this was such an engrossing character study). Also found several tantalizing new entries in my usual murder mystery/thriller genre including the new Kimberly McCreight novel and Dark Things I Adore (what a title!). Just finished this Buzz Books and already can’t wait for the next one. Thank you, NetGalley!

As always, I love this preview of forthcoming books. Reading the excerpts, a few books piqued my interest - Lauren Groff’s new novel, The School for Good Mothers, and Rare Books and Special Collections.  I’m looking forward to reading these titles and adding them to our library’s collection.

I really love these buzz books samplers. They always get me so pumped for what's to come. I enjoy that they show both seasoned and debut authors and reading the portion of the featured books helps me plan want I want to request for the coming season.
