You'll find exclusive excerpts of six titles due for publication during the months of November and December in this sampler.
In Liars’ Paradox, New York Times bestselling author Taylor Stevens introduces a new spy series with a brother and sister who were raised to deceive—and trained to kill.
Carrie Callaghan’s debut, A Light of Her Own, is a fictional account of artist and Rembrandt contemporary Judith Leyster.
Witness: Lessons From Elie Wiesel’s Classroom by Ariel Burger chronicles the conversations between teacher and student over decades. Burger remembers Elie Wiesel—Nobel laureate, activist, and author of more than forty books—as a great humanist.
From nonfiction, we turn to romance as Denise Hunter wraps up her Blue Ridge series with a You’ve Got Mail-style meet cute in On Magnolia Lane. Their Perfect Melody by Latinx writer Priscilla Oliveras brings us a new couple to love. Finally, enjoy Solace Island, a contemporary suspense romance from Oscar-nominated actress Meg Tilly set on a peaceful island village in the Pacific Northwest.

Worthy of attention for coming attractions. This book offers glimpses of promising fiction. My only wish is for more from these titles than the previews offered here.
For readers that missed the 2018 Fall/Winter edition, or the Romance edition, this will be a nice preview of a few upcoming books that were already highlighted in that edition.
Another great Buzz Book! I find these monthly Buzz Books to be a very valuable tool as I plan the books to feature on my blog during the upcoming months. I am really looking forward to Witness: Lessons From Elie Wiesel’s Classroom from this collection of excerpts.
Thank you so much for putting together these excerpts. Once again, my TBR has grown exponentially, this year has been a great year for books!
As usual, I’ve added several more books to my “TBR” list after reading through the latest “Buzz”! Thank you NetGalley and the publisher for putting together these wonderful listings of upcoming books.!
Thank you for another great edition of Buzz Books! Always look forward to reading the excerpts for upcoming releases and finding more books to add to my TBR.
Buzz Books are always fun to know about. I love to hear about upcoming titles! I've selected a few that I need to read ASAP!
I always look so forward to getting a head on whats to come in our library world. Wonderful excerpts and thing to look forward too.
Book Buzz Monthly always gives great information on upcoming book releases. It also includes excerpts from a few books.
I always devour these Buzz Books as soon as they are available. What an awesome way to get exposed to books you wouldn't normally look at. I requested one and wrote the rest down in my notebook to get later on. I love this idea of reading snippets of stories to see if you like the writing and the book.
These Buzz Books are not only a great way to sample some upcoming writing, or be introduced to new writiers, they also provide an excellent barometer of the future of writing trends. Another great collection, I look forward to the next!
A consolidated review of the books to look forward to for the end of the year. It was nice to see an extract for the new book from Meg Tilly - I didn't know she was also an author!
Once again....a wonderful tool for any book lover, especially book bloggers such as myself. This not only allows you to stay up to date on releases, but to read short excerpts of some of these upcoming novels as well. Thank you again!
I love when these come out because it gives me a chance to add to my “look out for” lists. I’m very excited to see that there will be a new Inspector Gamache novel by Louise Penny. I am also looking forward to Liane Moriarty’s “Nine Perfect Strangers” at the beginning of November. I do prefer the versions of these “buzz books” that have at least a sentence or two about each book, especially when it comes to the emerging talents. It’s very difficult to get an idea if a book is buzz-worthy solely by a title when the author is new. I did like the excerpts. I added “Liars’ Paradox” to my must list immediately after reading the excerpt. “Witness” is thought-provoking, and it would be hard to skip anything involving Elie Wiesel. I also added “Solace Island,” because it looks like it will be an interesting romantic suspense novel. I can’t wait for the next version of Buzz Books!
