Buzz Books gives you 40 chances to find your next great reads, providing exclusive early looks at the next big thing from favorite authors and hot new discoveries. At the end of most excerpts, you will find a link to the full galley on NetGalley!
From bestselling authors, we have samples of new work from Louise Erdrich and nonfiction from novelist Amy Tan in her memoir Where the Past Begins, as well as fiction from environmentalist Bill McKibben (Radio Free Vermont).
A rich selection of highly anticipated follow-up books is inside, too: From author of Ten Thousand Saints Eleanor Henderson comes her new novel The Twelve-Mile Straight; from the author of the quirky Mr. Penumbra's 24-Hour Bookstore Robin Sloan there is Sourdough; and Celeste Ng, author of Everything I Never Told You returns with Little Fires Everywhere.
This edition is packed with 16 debut novels, including the highly-touted Stay With Me by Ayobami Adebayo and the big thriller The Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn, along with first novels by Sarah Bailey, Phil Harrison, Ali Land, K Arsenault Rivera, Adrian Walker, Cherise Wolas and more.
In nonfiction, Bryan Mealer's The Kings of Big Spring recounts his family's complicated history with the Texas oil industry; Jaime Lowe's Mental: Lithium, Love, and Losing My Mind is both memoir and an investigation into the history, uses, and controversies behind lithium; Heather Harpham's Happiness looks at an estranged couple drawn back together by their daughter's unexpected illness; and actor Gabrielle Union's collection of essays about gender, sexuality, race, beauty, Hollywood, and what it means to be a modern woman suggests that We're Going to Need More Wine.
Regular readers know that each Buzz Books collection is filled with early looks at titles that will go on to top the bestseller lists and critics' "best of the year" lists. And our comprehensive seasonal preview starts the book off with a curated overview of hundreds of notable books on the way later this year.

As always I'm forever thankful for the staffs who launched this e-galley.
Little Fires Everything, We're Going to Need More Wine, Stay With Me. There is so much this has to offer. These excerpt are fantastic. Looking forward to reading the full versions!
Like opening a big present, there are so many amazing choices you simply know your reading list is growing by the minute as you read each preview! Thank you to NetGalley and Buzz Books for putting together such great new titles in one place. I'm especially excited about Sourdough by Robin Sloan, We're Going to Need More Wine by Gabrielle Union, Love is Not Enough by Mark Manson, Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, The Immoralists by Chloe Benjamin, and The Last Suppers by Mandy Mikulencak.
Thanks for the sneak peek! I was completely unaware of every single one of these books, so there were a lot of pleasant surprises. I can't wait to read the full version of Celeste Ng's new book.
Helpful summaries and excerpts of books to look forward to.
So many great works coming up. The snippets are great for most and I look forward to digging into some of these titles soon
Great way to see what's coming in the next few months. I greatly prefer this format to the monthly. Thanks!
Great! Plenty of new authors to try as well as highlighting new ones by favourites such as Jeffrey Eugenides and Isabelle Allende.
Thank you to all the people who put this publication together!
It's a fabulous way to stay up-to-date on all things books; whether it be upcoming titles from authors I love or a little intro to some debut authors I can look forward to!
Super useful as always👍, I can't wait for these releases, most look so good❤
While I love the monthly Buzz Books, these seasonal glimpses into what is coming out are my favorite. Some were already on my radar (Little Fires Everywhere by Celeste Ng, and Genuine Fraud by E. Lockhart), but some I hadn't heard of and am now eagerly anticipating (when can I request The Inner Lives of Animals?!?!?). It is clear that there is a lot to look forward to after summer!
Thanks again, Buzz Books, for introducing me to a whole new batch of books to covet until pub day! FUTURE HOME OF THE LIVING GOD by Louise Erdrich; THE IMMORTALISTS by Chloe Benjamin; I'LL STAY by Karen Day; THE CHILD FINDER by Rene Denfeld; THE TWELVE-MILE STRAIGHT by Eleanor Henderson; THE ROAD TO BITTERSWEET by Donna Everhart; HANNA WHO FELL FROM THE SKY by Christopher Meades - they all look so good!
Wow, wow, wow......there are so many awesome books coming out in fall and winter!! I ran to this Buzz Books as soon as I saw it was available!! I love the way you are exposed to a bit of a book you might not normally request or even pick up! I requested way too many and was delighted to see that many I had been invited to download. I am going to be very busy reading!!
Another great collection of forthcoming books to look forward to!!! As wonderful as ever to be gifted a glimpse into and knowledge of what sound like some tasty reads!!!
I love these Buzz Books previews! I discovered two books that I want to read, and realized that one book I had thought might be good was not one I wanted. Also, it gives me a chance to sample author's that I might never have read. Thanks Publishers Lunch, and Netgalley!
This is the first Buzz Books preview that I have requested and it will definitely not be the last! What a fantastic way to get readers excited about upcoming releases! I am already obsessed with a couple of titles after reading their excerpts, and can't wait to read them. The links at the end of the excerpt are also much appreciated. My TBR list went from insane to impossible and I couldn't be happier!
Great compilation of books that build interest and excitement in readers about what's coming up. It definitely reaches its goal of creating "buzz". I like that it's divided into the 3 categories and has excerpts of each book. I read excerpts that I wouldn't otherwise have an interest in.
My favorites are Sourdough and Little Fires Everywhere. I'm definitely putting these on my wish list.
I absolutely love these books because they give me a feel for upcoming books and my to read list always grows by a ton! There are so many books coming out that sound so good and are so beautifully written and I can't wait for the fall to get here to read these!
Keeps you up to date with forecoming books.
Gives you an insight into different variety of books for autumn and winter offering a variety of titles from different catogories of books.
Each book has an extract so youget the gist of what you will read throughtout the book offers a wide selection of books from adult general fiction to home cooking.
Thanks for this sampler, I always enjoy checking out the newest "hot" books for the upcoming season. Thanks for the opportunity :)
Such an exciting collection of soon-to-be published titles. A little bit for everybody and definitely some titles I'm very excited about now!
Buzz Books 2017: Fall/Winter
Without Buzz Books, I wouldn’t know of all these glorious titles heading our way! Get your lists fired up friends!
What a list of forthcoming books. How I didn’t know Amy Tan has a memoir out on October 17, 2017 is beyond me. I am highly anticipating it!
Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander has a new novel coming out, and I say Finally! I have been waiting and am excited. The Revolution of Marina M.
For fans of Isabel Allende, a moving love story will be out October 31, 2017 In The Midst Of Winter
It’s an exciting fall/winter with the best authors! Louise Erdich’s novel Future Home of the Living God will be out November 14, 2017
The Ninth Hour by Alice McDermott is forthcoming September 19, 2017
Of course Alice Hoffman’s prequel to her beloved Practical Magic is out October and I have already read the arc, giving it full stars. I felt down coming towards the ending, I didn’t want to leave The Owens’ family, I had so missed the magic! A picture of the cover can’t do it justice, it is one of the prettiest I’ve seen in years. Much cover love. I will post my review closer to the release date per the publisher’s request.
Chloe Benjamin, the author of The Anatomy of Dreams has The Immortalists out January 9, 2018- I have been waiting somewhat impatiently for approval for this arc. The few people who’ve read it raved about the forthcoming story of siblings that are privy, early on, to the date of their deaths. Intriguing.
Jennifer Egan’s Manhatten Beach takes the reader to Brooklyn during the Great Depression. I am currently reviewing an arc and it’s moving, beautifully atmospheric and I know it will be enjoyed by many. It is certainly haunting and another novel I won’t be posting for awhile. I feel like a hoarder when I am able to get my book wormy hands on such wonderful fiction before others, because damn if I don’t love to gush about the good books and share the love.
I adored The Education of Dixie Dupree by Donna Everhart, and I am so excited that she has written a new novel that sounds just as beautiful. The Road to Bittersweet will be out December 26, 2017. This is another arc on my highly anticipating list. With sweet covers and lovely titles it always seems as though the reading would be light, but not a chance. Don’t be fooled into thinking pretty covers mean breezy reads.
My curiosity is piqued about The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore by Kim Fu. Young girls at a sleep-away camp stranded without adults, help, guidance and what happens in the years that follow?
Pulitzer Prize winning author Jeffrey Eugenides, yes I am a fan, will have his first collection of short fiction coming out October 3, 2017. Those few people who already read it- I’m so jealous! Though this book is towards the end of my list, he needs no promoting from me, so I think I’m forgiven.
One that is sure to cause some discomfort, and yet I know so many of my fellow readers have already added to their list is All We Shall Know by Donal Ryan. ‘Martin Toppy is the son of a famous Traveller and the father of my unborn child. He’s seventeen, I’m thirty-three. I was his teacher. I’d have killed myself by now if I was brave enough. I don’t think it would hurt the baby. His little heart would stop with mine. He wouldn’t feel himself leaving one world of darkness for another, his spirit untangling itself from me.’ That shared from Goodreads, oh my!
Is it just me or are covers getting so much more beautiful. Ode to physical books, because regardless of the ebooks I get, I somehow always hunt down physical copies. I can’t resist. I may die buried in a pile of dusty books one day, but I will have a smile on my face.
It’s going to be a great year in reading. I love the sneaky peaks Buzz Books gives us!
Great resource as always for the budding reader! I'm looking forward to the Fall/Winter reading season to check out these books! I'm very hyped.
A really exciting collection - it's done nothing good for my ever-increasing "To read" stack, but I am really looking forward to ploughing my way through some of these! The overall quality of this selection was incredibly enticing.
I love when this come out every month, I find so many great books to put on my want to read list.
I look forward to these Buzz Books samplers every year because I always discover some hidden gems this way. This year's edition was no different. I've already requested full galleys of several titles, and have read a couple. Keep up the great work!
I look forward to reading the Buzz Books each season for a preview of what's to come. It sure helps me to narrow down my "must-reads" for the next few months!
I love books. I love book reviews. I browsed (devoured) this book about books and made a list (another book list of many!) of which books caught my eye. It was great that it was broken up into sections, so I could fast-forward through the categories that didn't appeal to me. Thank you for a wonderful resource and I look forward to happy hours reading!
Great excerpts, something for everyone. It makes it so much easier with the links to request whatever you fancy on NetGalley too. Excellent!
2017 looks like there are going to be a lot of great books coming out which is fantastic!
I love these Buzz Books - I always end up adding at least several books to my ever-growing TBR list! There are quite a few book coming out within the next few months that I am especially excited about, and quite a few of them are available to request on NetGalley (this ebook also makes it incredibly easy to request these books if they are available).
Some books I am especially looking forward to:
- Salman Rushdie's The Golden House (no excerpt)
- David Lagercrantz's The Girl Who Takes An Eye For An Eye (no excerpt)
- Gabrielle Zevin's Young Jane Young (no excerpt)
- Chloe Benjamin's The Immortalists (excerpt included!)
- Celeste Ng's Little Fires Everywhere (excerpt included!)
- K Arsenault Rivera's The Tiger's Daughter (excerpt included!)
- Amy Tan's Where the Past Begins: A Writer's Memoir (excerpt included!)
Thank you for putting this compilation together and for getting me excited about all of these upcoming books!
This was the first time I read through a title like this and I am amazed at the upcoming publications. I just cannot wait to read many of these titles!
I always love finding out what books are coming down the pipeline. I hadn't heard of any of the books featured in this edition. I am looking forward to reading The Immortalists, We're Going to Need More Wine and Little Fires Everywhere.
Buzz Books, you've done it again! My "To Be Read" list is blowing up--and I love it! There are several titles that I am really anxious to get my hands on. Thank you to Publishers Lunch and NetGalley for making these wonderful previews available.
Really glad these are a thing. I love being able to get a taste of all the good stuff coming out so I know better what to try to request!
I absolutely love perusing for new books and the Buzz Books series is the best place to get any reader or reviewer started on what is going to on our shelves soon.
A wonderful collection! There are so many that I would love to read and can see my purse being a lot lighter soon. I couldn't tell you which books that stood out as being 'a must read', as there were so many that appealed to me.
Review posted on Amazon.
More of the same, excellent excerpts of some really interesting books. Rely on Buzz Books for a good part of my reading choices.
Yay! I love these previews! I'm super excited for The Woman in the Window!
Perusing the latest Buzz Books offerings is nearly as good as strolling the aisles of BookExpo! I love these seasonal samplers and the opportunity that they give me to dip into works by favorite authors like Louise Erdrich (Future Home of the Living God) and Amy Tan (Where the Past Begins: A Writer’s Memoir) and to be introduced to new-to-me writers like Donna Everhart (The Road to Bittersweet); Sarah Miller (Caroline); Bradford Morrow (The Prague Sonata); Celeste Ng (Little Fires Everywhere); and Ayobami Adelbayo (Stay With Me). I also appreciate being able to request NetGalley versions of some of the books included here. I'm looking forward to reading and helping to build buzz for these titles!
This collection includes really helpful excerpts from many buzzed about novels. I can't wait to read some of them on NetGalley and in print, once they are released.
Great to have this information~thanks to "Publishers Lunch" :)
Buzz books is a great way to sample upcoming books and sample what you may be interested. 16 Debut Novels, among dozens of others from authors who already one or more books released. Besides telling the plot of upcoming fiction, I appreciate the preview samplers so I can test whether the writing fits me or not before plunging in. Divided into Part One: Fiction; Part Two: Debut Fiction; Part Three: Non-Fiction. They also have a YA Line that is released each year. Both of these are free Read Now Features on Netgalley.
I'm really excited about these Fall 2017 selections! I was lucky enough to get to read and review a galley of Celeste Ng's Little Fires Everywhere, and I think it's an exceptionally good novel. I loved it. I also love two of the nonfiction books: The Kings of Big Springs and Life Detonated. I couldn't step away while reading those excerpts, and I look forward to reading the complete version of each book. They are both well written and compelling in my view as a reader and writing professor. Thanks so much for sharing! I love the Buzz Books excerpts.
so beneficial to anyone who needs to cull their tbr pile or who recommends upcoming titles to others.
This has to be one of the best books I have ever been lucky enough to find! For a cable cutter who is a slightly obsessive reader, this was like receiving the most perfect gift ever. I now have a list of over 20 books that I might never have known existed if not for Buzz Books and I cannot wait to go past the 'teaser' chapters and find out what happens next to all the amazing characters I have met. Thank you NetGalley for the opportunity to find new authors and new books.
I always recommend the Buzz Books, which provide readers with excerpts from the coming season's most anticipated books. Once again, my reading appetite is whetted for these new titles. Thanks to Netgalley for the e-copy I received of Buzz Books 2017: Fall/Winter.
I just love Buzz Books and really look forward to the big seasonal volumes like this one for Fall/Winter. So much incredible information at our fingertips. Usually I don't know where to begin, but now I started highlighting with my own little color coding system within each genre indicating which ones are my first picks then their publish date. The excerpts that are in the book are already starred * for you, (so cool) so just use your color to match with that star. Works for me. Give it a try or develop your own! Just start reading; so much to look forward to, I can't name them all! Thanks Publishers Lunch, Buzz Books, and Netgalley.
Thank you for putting this together! I loved looking through it and getting excited for fall releases.
Buzz Books 2017: Fall/Winter is a fantastic preview of forthcoming titles. I found quite a few books I can hardly wait to read, with A. J. Finn's The Woman in the Window and Donna Everhart's The Road to Bittersweet topping the list.
I highly recommend this book for discovering new authors! I look forward to it every year!
I'm so glad that I read this. I have added at least six new books to me TBR list. I'm very excited to read these and can't wait for the next addition of Buzz Books.
An excellent way to discover new and upcoming books and authors. Thank you!
This is always such a great way to find out the upcoming books for next season! It really is a comprehensive collection.
Thanks to Netgalley,publishers and various contributing authors for this book. I am always on the lookout for books to read and excerpts. This book had helped me with that. There are so many good books and new authors, I'm never sure where to start. My local bookstore also thanks you as now I won't be monopolizing their coffee book copy ! Loving it !
As usual, a nice variety and a great way to find new books to read and review.
The Buzz Books are a real help each season and this one was especially so. I really enjoy reading through the excerpts and getting a sense of the upcoming books.
A really good and comprehensive look at everything coming our way for Fall and Winter of 2017.
Rathr than run through hours of research, this has everything I need to make future reading decisions.
I think I will take a run at the YA selections now. Time to branch out of my comfort zone.
An interesting and intriguing selection of books - it's good to be able to read excerpts so I can figure out which books might become new favourites.
Only one comment - there's a lot of thrillers and some challenging subject matter here. I'd really love to see some more light-hearted offerings in the mix.
Thank you to the wonderful contributors who put this together, so helpful and exciting!
These samplers are so cool! I'm very intrigued by Mental and I'm looking forward to reading it this fall.
This was great! Found a few books I'd love to review, and hopefully I'll get the chance.
A very useful resource! It's great to have lots of excerpts in one place. This has made me particularly excited for Sourdough, Autonomous, and the Immortalists.
A really good taster of the books that are coming out! Wouldn't have seen half of them were it not for this sampler! Definitely excited to read some of them!
Love these buzz books and getting an early look at the offerings coming up. Thanks for taking the time to put them together !
A fascinating sample of forthcoming fiction and non-fiction. A great selection., with lots to look forward to.

Fantastic as always.. I love getting these "sneak peeks" at upcoming titles -- I always find at least a handful to add to my ever-growing "TBR" list! A nice mix of genres and authors both familiar and new. I never miss a new edition of Book Buzz!
I love these Buzz Books samplers, There are always several books that I end up adding to my wishlist after going thru the various selections. Keep them coming!
A most helpful guide to forthcoming books in the fall. I especially enjoyed the excerpts with the book from Gabrielle Union being a highly anticipated read. Also Celete Ng's novel looks like it will be a fall favorite for readers. Thanks Netgalley for making this buzz available.
I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review. I've found so many books I must read!!
Wow! So many great books coming up this year. I am particularly looking forward to Louise Erdich's new book! Thanks so much to Publishers Lunch for providing me with a copy of BUZZBOOKS 2017
I have already downloaded one story. I have also requested several others. Some of these stories were unknown to me before reading the excerpts.
J.T. Ellison's newest looks amazing & I'm intrigued by The Girl on the Velvet Swing & Sarah Bailey's The Dark Lake.
I look forward to every Buzz Books release, they're always packed with variety and allow me to plan my reading months in advance. Everyone should read these!
Very helpful for looking at upcoming books, the excerpts are the perfect length to get an idea of a book before committing to reading it.
Very much interested in the Child Finder by Renne Denfield, the Woman in the Window by A.J. Finn and the Prague Sonata by Bradford Morrow.
Also tempted by Seven Days of Us by Francesca Hornak and Good Me Bad Me by Ali Land, but am holding off requesting for a little while.
Very excited about the Fall Winter book publishing world! Can't wait to get these beauties in my hands!
Great way to see upcoming titles and get a sneak peek at the books. I've found a few books that are going to my TBR list and I'll be on the look out to read them when they are published.
How is it that I have barely given these a second glance before now?! I am kicking myself!! This issue is bursting at the seams with so many wonderful upcoming releases. I love the that the covers are included, as well as lengthly experts, and some even have "request now" links.
As soon as I've made a dent in my summer reading list, I will not only be adding quite a few to my tbr, but if there is an option, requesting them as well! Thank you so much NetGalley, being a serious tbr planner, this tool is exactly what I need!
I love these compilations from Buzz Books. It is a very simple premise but it is brilliantly executed. Instead of just publishing a list of soon to be published books, you get the first chapter or an excerpt. It is a sort of bundled Kindle sample. But the clever part is that there are old favourites to draw you in, like JT Ellison and Celeste Ng, but there are also debut authors that you might not otherwise discover and then there's non-fiction that you wouldn't find on your own. Some excellent stuff here and I am particularly looking forward to reading Amy Tan's memoir having enjoyed the teaser.
Excellent - I'm hosting a podcast this evening to discuss books we are anticipating for the second half of the year - got some good ideas! Thanks
Thank your for the special opportunity to preview publications for later this year. It is another one of the special gifts NetGalley provides its members. We are blessed!
Love the idea of being able to get a sneak peak at some new releases coming up.
Looks like a great season ahead. Lots of great reads to look forward to so excited. Will almost make Winter worthwhile this year. Thank you x
This was not my favorite edition of Buzz Books, but as always, I still found it to be a valuable resource in anticipated read excerpts. I was especially looking forward to the Celeste Ng book excerpt, and found several others that caught my attention for the fall and winter as well. Thank you for providing this copy! I look forward to each edition of Buzz Books.
As always, the seasonal previews are exciting, informational and a pleasure to read. It is fun to know what's forthcoming from authors and making sure I keep adding to my 'need to read ' list.
