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.

Thank you to NetGalley and Publishers Lunch for this copy of Buzz Books 2021: Fall/Winter.

Having devoured the last edition of Buzz Books I was thrilled to see that a new version was available. I was even more excited when I saw some of the excerpts included. Nowhere else can you find sneak peeks of upcoming releases from authors such as Mitch Albom, Noah Hawley and Lauren Groff. Featuring distinct sections for Fiction, Debut authors, Non-Fiction and Young Adult, there is truly something for everyone in this edition. Big bonus for NetGalley reviewers, you can request a copy from a link at the end of the excerpt without missing a beat! Anyone who loves to read should give this a try. As for me, I will be patiently waiting for the next edition of Buzz Books!

I loved this sampler of upcoming books. I now have several new titles on my “watch for” list, discovered two new authors I’m excited to read & recommend, and learned that a couple of my favorites have new books coming out - all good! And I could request titles from NetGalley right from a link at the end of each excerpt- super easy. I was surprised that not all the new books listed in the front were excerpted, but there are plenty of intriguing story starts here to please most every  reader. Thanks to NetGalley & the publisher for making this available.

I love seeing all the new releases coming  this Fall/Winter. I see many authors I love on this list and I love being able to read excerpts of other lesser known to me authors. I just requested some books based on this. Thanks Netgalley!

I love getting these samplers of books releasing later in the year. I can tell 2021 fall/winter is going to have some amazing releases! The very first sample is of one of my favorite authors, Mitch Albom. Followed by a story that is inspired by one of my favorites of all time. So for me this sampler definitely started out strong. I love how it is divided into sections such as fiction, nonfiction, etcetera. I'm also always pleased when there is a Young Adult selection included. This section also included another favorite author of mine, Rick Riordan. I was very impressed and have so many new books to add to my wishlist! Thanks Netgalley.

Publishers Lunch is such a great resource, but I've never been able to a get a copy of buzz books before. Already dying to read the new Lauren Groff and Tiphanie Yanique books coming out, and there are many others in this overview that are new to me. Now, to find time to read them. Really appreciate this preview!!

I always look forward to BuzzBooks. These free collections of excerpts and lists are a fantastic way to find books to read by old and new authors. There is always the fun of discovery within. As can be seen from the cover of this title, there is a lot on offer. Among the “and more” are some books that I am really looking forward to reading, including those by Natasha Lester, Patti Callahan and Richard Osman, among others.

I am a big fiction reader but this collection also includes some interesting non-fiction titles. There are some upcoming young adult book excerpts and suggestions as well.

This wonderful resource is free at most on-line bookstores. Get your copy!

Many thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. All opinions are my own.
