If you, like me, enjoy getting a heads up in to the up and coming titles ahead, the Buzz Books issue is a great way to get your sampling of what lies ahead.

In this issue in particular, reading excerpts of the upcoming works, by authors such as Naomi Alderwood, added to my list of books for the year ahead from the library/Libby app searches to the bookmarks for preorders.

Can't wait for the next issue!

I am always trying to decide if I should read Buzz books. Why? Because I end up with a longer list of books to be read. I decided to take the plunge and now my list is longer! In this terrific volume, there is fiction and literary fiction. Debuts — first fiction is always amazing. They also have commercial fiction meaning the biggest well known authors such as James Patterson and Lee Child. In the nonfiction titles includ biographies and memoirs as usual. Social issues, politics, essays, criticism and more, current events, crime, history, business, science and technology are also included in the nonfiction section. Thanks to this edition, I will be adding some books in those nonfiction areas that I don’t read without a recommendation or something to look at. It helps me be aware of titles that I might not ever realize existed. You can’t help but find something to read!

It was a great list of books to look forward to, it helped me get ready for a winter of reading. Not sure what else to write as it is a book of lists.

I don't like how you do this. You get those snobs that have different books but they all have a theme. You seem to tie it together really well fiction and non fiction and children's books. Some of these writers are amazing. And I like how you explain after you read it and before you read it. So you're getting like a gist of what's really going on. Especially the varieties of different races. This is good they'll be exposed and I think we'll just get better. As the time goes on. I think people really read short things like this. And this really goes back to when reader Digest used to give out books once a month just short little things. This reminds me of that when I was a little girl. Also I have to read the book. You can either request to read more of it, which is really good, because then you can decide if you want to rate it or don't want to read it. This gives people opportunity to explore different avenues of writing.

I love these publishings that give a taste of a bunch of upcoming books. It always exposes me to books I hadn't heard of and also lets me see the writing style of a book I did have on my radar.

Buzz Books is one of my all-time favorites each season because you get to see what is coming out and get a snippet of selected books to read before buying. I have discovered so many new books coming out and books that I didn't know which was a good reminder.

It's a great way to also discover a new author.

The selection is always great and I love that you can pick up this anytime to read a few chapters.

I always love these collections — such an exciting sneak peek into what is coming soon! It feels impossible but I think every preview here reveals a book that seems well worth reading.

Thank you for these fun previews! This collection is a great way to browse and add books from the upcoming publishing season. The Vaster Wilds by Lauren Groff, Family Meal by Bryan Washington, and Coleman Hill by Kim Coleman Foote stood out to me. Excited for many of these!

So annoyed at myself that I forgot about looking for this book. 2023 spring/summer was my first one of these.

Just a fabulous idea as you can get an idea of what is coming and books to look out for. unfortunately because I came to the game so late with this one it wasn’t great. That was my fault, the concept is brilliant and I will do better next time.

"Buzz Books 2023: Fall/Winter" by Publishers Lunch serves as an insightful guide for avid readers and industry professionals eager to explore upcoming releases. The book's strength lies in its ability to provide a curated selection of excerpts from anticipated titles, allowing readers to preview and discover potential favorites.

One of the book's positive aspects is its comprehensive coverage of various genres, catering to diverse reading preferences. The inclusion of exclusive sneak peeks and author insights adds an exciting layer, creating anticipation for the upcoming literary season. The concise format of book excerpts is reader-friendly, making it easy for enthusiasts to quickly identify books aligning with their tastes.

However, it's worth noting that the book's brevity limits the depth of analysis for each title, leaving readers with only a glimpse into the narrative. While the aim is to generate excitement, some may find themselves wanting more information to make informed reading choices.

"Buzz Books 2023: Fall/Winter" is a valuable resource for book enthusiasts seeking a sneak peek into the literary landscape. Its curated selection and inclusion of author perspectives make it an engaging preview. However, readers desiring a more comprehensive exploration of each featured title may find the book serving as more of a teaser than an in-depth guide.

This collection of buzz books was the perfect launching pad for creating my Fall / Winter 2023 reading list. A truly exceptional grouping of suggestions, with these books in hand, I would never want to come-up from reading. A few I had already been aware of, but this exclusive grouping put some others on my radar I would not have otherwise known. I look forward to the next collection of upcoming reads!
