You'll find exclusive excerpts of seven titles due for publication during September in this sampler.
Jude Deveraux breaks away from romance with her first mystery, A Willing Murder, while Lynne Hugo describes an older woman’s quirky path from heartbreak to hope in The Testament Of Harold's Wife.
New York Times bestselling author Sarah Pinborough’s psychological thriller is Cross Her Heart and a convention-defying novel by another bestselling writer, Walter Mosley, is John Woman.
Television and YA writer Rebecca Serle’s The Dinner List is an adult novel with tinges of magic realism.
Rounding out this monthly are two debuts: Imogen Hermes Gowar’s historical novel The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock, which has already been shortlisted for the Women's Prize for Fiction. Stuart Turton’s The 7½ Deaths Of Evelyn Hardcastle is like Groundhog Day meets Life After Life.

So excited to get this latest version of Book Buzz Monthly! Want to read all seven books mentioned. Wow, my TBR pile has just happily grown!
Thanks to Publishers Lunch and NetGalley for the review copy. Opinions are fully mine.
This is such a good resource to have. There are some great excerpts included in this book, including the upcoming novel by Jude Deveraux. I plan to feature several of these book on my blog in the upcoming months.
Lovely mix of books. I look forward to reading more. These collections allow me to find new books for my list and add to my ever growing TBR list.
As the leaves start to turn and the days get noticeably shorter, it's time to turn our attention to cozy reading corners and TBR lists. The September 2018 Buzz Books Monthly will be a great tool for autumn reading selections. There are seven excerpts of upcoming books as well as lists entitled: extra attention, literary favorites and emerging talents, debut fiction, commercial fiction and nonfiction. Thank you to Publishers Lunch and NetGalley.
Another issue of an excellent resource. Find out what you can look forward to reading in September. Among the titles noted are Jude Devereaux's first mystery novel along with The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock which has garnered excellent reviews in England. Debut novels, fiction, non-fiction are all included with the names of forthcoming titles. Pick your fall reading by starting here. Thanks BookBuzz!
Always excited for the latest editions of Buzz Books Monthly. It's a great resource for upcoming releases and my TBR grows with every installment.
So my TBR pile just grew quite a bit! I want to read them all.
I'm especially looking forward to The DInner List and The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock!
Many thanks to NetGalley for my ARC. All opinions are my own.
This is a great collection of excerpts of upcoming books for the months of September 2018.
I enjoyed the excerpt for THE DINNER LIST by Rebecca Serle, this title is also a BOOK OF THE MONTH CLUB selection for August. It contains an introduction followed by a section with a list of "Extra Attention", "Literary Favorites and Emerging Talents", debut fiction, commercial fiction, and nonfiction titles. Then it has a section of book excerpts.
There are a few books mentioned in the publication that I look forward to reading: CROSS HER HEART from Sarah Pinborough and LEAVE NO TRACE by Mindy Mejia. .
Overall, a great list of buzzing titles for the months of September 2018.
Thank you so much for posting these to look through. It introduces me to books I may not pick up before and gives me a chance to get a taste for what's to come later this year. It gets me so excited! I wouldn't have known about these otherwise. Some of them, I wasn't a fan of, but others sound great. A lot to choose from this time around. Thanks!
What an awesome way to introduce books to readers. Each book has a chapter or two for the reader to check out to see if they like the writing and want to read more. I requested two and wrote the rest down for later. Each excerpt usually has a link that the reader can click on that takes them to Netgalley where they can request the book! Such a brilliant idea.
Just a wonderful way to see whats coming up next to read. It's great that there is a sample of a few of the highlighted books.
An incredibly helpful monthly resource for upcoming books. The excerpts included cover a good variety of genres and styles. I will be recommending this to reader and reviewer friends.

Buzzbooks Monthly is a great way to learn about interesting new reads from debut authors and old favorites.
I love these excerpts! I TBR always grows exponentially after browsing the titles. Thank you for putting these together, they are a wealth of information for an avid reader like myself.
I always look forward to seeing these pop up every month, I find some of the best books here, however, it is really bad for my to be read shelves.
Very nice reference guide. This guide previews many upcoming books and provides links to Net Galley for several of the books in the guide.
Every month I download Buzz Books Monthly as soon as I see it is available. The difference this month? We are SO in sync. There were very few surprises this month, and the books that were highlighted were already at the top of my TBR. This month's edition of Buzz Books didn't grow my TBR as it usually does, but got me even more excited about the books that I've already got for September!
As always, I got another half dozen upcoming books to add to my TBR list. I'm especially looking forward to The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle, by Stuart Turton.
A great compilation of news, information, and excerpts for upcoming new book releases from a variety of genres.
A great resource for upcoming new releases. Thank you for the excerpts! Many thanks to Publishers Lunch and NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Another great Buzz Books Monthly !!!
Gives you big summaries of 7 books with info about the authors. You just want to read all those books! They look amazing!
I love Buzz Books that's how I get to discover new books I want to read next!
Review shared online on NetGalley, Twitter, Goodreads, Amazon...
So many books out next month; this collection was a good way to get acquainted with them. Especially looking forward to the 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle.
What a fun Buzz Books - as always, something for everyone. The Dinner Party rocketed its way up my list, and I hope I am accepted to review it!
I am always excited to read Buzz Book Monthly's latest titles, and the issue for September 2018 is no exception. While there are a few notable titles already on my TBR list - namely, Imogen Hermes Gowar's The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock as well as Stuart Turton's The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle - there are also a few pleasant surprises, such as Sarah Pinborough's latest thriller Cross Her Heart and Rebecca Serle's The Dinner List.
I can't wait to dive in!
Really enjoyed this group of excerpts. Especially appreciate that the mystery genre is well represented in the highly anticipated 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle excerpt and the mystery A Willing Murder by Jude Deveraux. Thank you for publishing Book Buzz!
I love Buzz books as it gives you an idea of what you might need to read next. It’s like a trailer for books. I now know what I want to read next. Thanks NetGalley.
A fantastic publication with detailed infirmation on books to be published plus first chapters of titles that are already spoken of with great appreciation. Highly recommendable!
Interesting excerpts. Excited for the new books.
Thank you to Publishers Lunch and NetGalley for providing a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review
This glimpse into upcoming fiction and nonfiction titles is greatly appreciated! It's a great tool for those of us who love spreading the world about literary entertainment.
A: great way to learn about new books and read first chapters. I am particularly interested in reading "The Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock" by Imogen Hermes Gowar. It appears to be different from my usual reading and the writing in the first chapter is very good.
Thank you for the nice samples! I was especially looking forward to the Mermaid and Mrs. Hancock, but it seems The 7 1/2 Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle is worth checking out as well.
This is my second of these, and I am quickly becoming addicted to them. I love that I can get an advanced look at upcoming books so I can update my lists and be ready for their releases; and yes, I do get that organized with my booklists! I also like being able to read excerpts, because it’s a good way to be introduced to new authors, or authors that other people rave about (I like to find out for myself without having to commit to an entire book). I did find it extremely interesting that there were a number of political nonfiction books on this list, releasing just in time for the midterm elections. Timing is everything. Judging from this list, and from what I’ve read elsewhere, I’m looking forward to several books, including Rebecca Serle’s “The Dinner List” and Jo Jakeman’s “The Exes’ Revenge.” The excerpt from Stuart Turton’s “The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle” was enough to put that one on my list as well. But the one I am most excited about is “Time’s Convert” by Deborah Harkness. Her All Souls trilogy is one of my all-time favorites, and I can’t wait to read her latest. My only wish for this list is that more of the titles had a one or two sentence blurb to give a better idea of what each book is about. Other Buzz Books have been more detailed than this one. Still, at least it’s all in one place to give people someplace to start looking for their next read. Thank you to NetGalley for a digital copy in exchange for an honest review.
I look forward to each edition of Buzz Books. This time, I was already familiar with two of the novels: "The 7/12 Lives of Evelyn Hardcastle" and "The Dinner Party." I had not yet heard about "John Woman" and based on the Buzz Books preview, I want to know more!
LOVE THIS FEATURE! Gives one a chance to preview books and keep on one's radar. I continue to look forward to buzz books monthly.
I do love the whole concept of these Buzz Books. They have lists of titles being released in the month - very useful - but they also include excerpts of books due to be published. It works on the same principle as Kindle samples but you get a lucky dip. As you usually don't know of these writers, you wouldn't know to read their work so it works well to expose you to new authors. I'll be following up on a few of these. Recommended if you're looking for some new ideas.
I was given a copy of the book by Netgalley in return for an honest review.
The buzz books are great, as they always include books by familiar authors, as well as debut novelists. I am always happy when an excerpt is offered before I choose a book. Thank you!
