Description

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.

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.

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!

Great overview of some upcoming books that I never would have time to have picked up individually. Thank you for the preview! There's definitely some titles that I'll add to my To Be Read pile and that I can suggest in Reader's Advisory.
