The 21st edition of Buzz Books is a treasure-trove of what readers value the most: substantial excerpts from titles scheduled for publication this fall and winter. Think of it as a compilation of nearly 60 great “singles.” At the end of most excerpts, you will find a link to the full galley on NetGalley!
Major bestselling authors such as Alice Feeney and John Irving are featured, along with literary greats Yiyun Li, Elizabeth McCracken, and Kamila Shamsie. Other sure-to-be popular titles are by Lauren Denton, Stephen Markley, and Ellen Marie Wiseman.
Buzz Books has had a particularly stellar track record with highlighting the most talented, exciting debut authors, and this edition is no exception with Jonathan Escoffery’s If I Survive You, Jamila Minnicks’ Moonrise Over New Jessup, and Kai Thomas’s In the Upper Country.
Our nonfiction selections range from New Yorker writer Rachel Aviv’s exploration of trauma to Cin Fabré’s inspiring story of becoming a Wall Street Trader at 19. Pulitzer-Prize winning historian Thomas Ricks offers a look into the civil rights movement.
Finally, we present ten early looks at new work up-and-coming young adult authors Kate Armstrong, Krystal Marquis, and Maya Prasad and more, as well as Nubia, a debut from actor Omar Epps.

Buzz Books 2022: Fall/Winter is a huge collection of excerpts from the most highly anticipated releases for the second half of 2022. I loved learning about new novels and reading samples. This sampler is massive and has something for everyone. It includes Fiction, Debut, Nonfiction, and Young Adult book samples. Thank you NetGalley and the publishers for providing this great collection.
Oh my goodness!! So many delicious books coming out this fall. I'm so excited to read them all. I love how Buzz Books introduces you to so many books that aren't in my usual genre. I requested quite a few, downloaded a couple, and wrote the rest down to add to my ever growing and almost toppling TBR mountain.
I am excited for these 2022 Winter/Fall Titles!! This was such a great preview. When I was a bookseller I always loved breezing through this catalogue at one of our Publisher breakfasts. They truly made us eagerly anticipate upcoming releases!
This title is one of the best that I know of for readers who want to learn about upcoming books across a wide variety of categories. Whether it is debut authors, blockbuster authors, popular authors, non-fiction, fiction, YA, suggestions can be found here. In addition, a number of titles have lengthy excerpts.
Buzz Books is free at many e retailers. I very highly recommend it. I have already started making my list for new titles to read. It is lengthy.
Many thanks to NetGalley. All opinions are my own.
Always a joy. Get to see what’s coming, read chapters and request ARCS. Thanks for including me, a highlight of my reading plans.

Thank you to NetGalley for this incredible guide to the best books expected in Fall and Winter. These Buzz Book anthologies have become my go-to resource for all of the newest treasures to add to my TBR list. I'm counting the days until some of my favorite authors release their newest novels and I'm already drawn to several new authors after reading excerpts of their stunning debuts. Non-fiction is not my usual genre of choice but some upcoming releases by some very interesting celebrities have already caught my eye. I'm ready for a huge pile of books to keep me warm and cozy in fall and winter!
Excellent overview of Fall/Winter books. I read a lot of the excerpts and requested half a dozen galleys. What a great way to explore new books and new authors! Highly recommended
I love these previews. It helps me watch for books that are going to be on the rise during each season. Thank you for always putting these together!
Buzz Books 2022: Fall/Winter is a great sampler for anyone interested to know what books are being published when. There were many books I was not aware of yet, and the reading samples were often several chapters so you really get a feel for the book's tone. I added many new titles to my reading list. Highly recommended for anyone who loves books! Thanks to NetGalley for the ARC!
I really love this in depth look at the books coming out in fall/winter 2022-2023. The extended descriptions help you decide which books to look into further, and the excerpts give you an idea of the writing style.
Thank so much for this!
This is a MUST for any reader! This provides release dates for highly-anticipated books and has so many surprises of authors I didn’t know has a new one releasing. I use it to immediately put “holds” on books I cannot wait to read at my local library securing my place at the top of what will be a long list! Thanks to NetGalley for compiling the book - I love it!
This book is the greatest thing since slice bread! I really like having this on Kindle so that I am able to highlight the books I’m interested in, and I even have the ability to export that list. Wahoo! Thank you @netgalley.
I can’t even contain my excitement over this. Every season I scour the internets for anticipated releases, and am always unfulfilled because each list I find only has a handful of books on it, but I want to know ALL of them. So this is a dream come true. And with excerpts to boot! I’ll be looking forward to this each season. Thanks, NetGalley! You rock!
Also, holy smokes, I’ll have my work cut out for me tackling the tbr list this fall. So many great titles coming out. I’m not about to wish my summer reads away, but I can feel the hearts in my eyes just thinking about sweaters and candles and lattes and that crisp fall smell while snuggled up reading any number of these books. Ahhh.
Buzz Books never lets me down! I’m always excited to download a new issue and immediately start adding to my TBR! I always come away with at least a few reads I am excited about and hadn’t heard of yet. Can’t wait for the next romance issue!!
I am literally freaking obsessed with these because it gives me a piece of each author’s writing style to determine whether I want to delve deeper into a book or not. And of course I get to read a bit of some books from authors I adore and am so excited for!!! In this one, the new Feeney has me sooooo excited and now I want it more than ever!!! Thank you so much for putting these together!!!
I absolutely love getting the new edition of Buzz Books. The last review, I think I wrote it was like getting a present with a pretty bow wrapped up special with great books for me. Well, this time the box was bigger and the bow was prettier.
There were are so many novels coming out by authors I am awaiting. Fredrik Backman, Kate Atkinson, Maggie O’Farrell, Kate McCraken, Candice Carly-Williams, Alice Feeney, Taylor Jenkins Reid, and many more. I could go on for a long time. I love that this includes debut novels, and that is one of my favorite parts; I get to discover new voices and books that I will love. The Storyteller’s Death, by Ann Devila Cardinal, If I Survive You, by Jonathan Escoffery, and Someday Maybe, by Onyi Nwabinelli sounded especially interesting. I also appreciate that there are many Non-Fiction books listed.
This is terrific for NetGalley members because their are excerpts to read and then you can directly request the book. Some books, had a link where I could get the book right away. This I will definitely come back to, as I finish up some of my summer reads and can plan for the books I’d like in the Fall and Winter.
If you do not have a NetGalley account, you can still get Buzz Books 2022: Fall/Winter FREE just by going to your Amazon account and adding it to your Kindle. It is so helpful to see books you like and also great for Book Clubs picks.
I decided to add a separate category with the books I like from here. I can then check back and add additional books I will add on. This is a great time to start looking over the new titles, as many friends and fellow Goodreads members will start discussing them. It sparks early discussions of the books, too and that is fun. It’s a great way for us all to see new books that interest us.
So, 5 stars 🌟all the way. Love this Guide so Much.
Thank you NetGalley and Publishers Lunch for providing a copy of this.
I look forward to each edition of Buzz Books with great anticipation! This is a brilliant way to build excitement about upcoming books by familiar authors AND introduce new authors who readers otherwise might not have learned about. The editors do a wonderful job of summarizing the books, and they include an incredibly thorough list of books coming out this fall. In this edition, I especially enjoyed The Fortunes of Jaded Women (read an ARC which was great), The Storyteller's Death, Daisy Darker, and Now is Not the Time to Panic. Huge thanks to NetGalley for providing this fantastic resource for booklovers.
I LOVE The Buzz Books series from Publishers Lunch! Thank you so much for the inside scoop on what will be big in the coming season, and especially for the generous excerpts. The Buzz Books download always informs my purchasing decisions, reader’s advisory, and “TBR” list for the Pennsylvania Young Reader’s Choice Award Committee! I especially love to peruse the Buzz Books for potential crossover titles that will be popular with faculty members. This season I am especially excited to start reading Winterland by Rae Meadows, The Old Place by Bobby Finger (crunch, crunch), and The Davenports by Krystal Marquis! Many thanks, and I look forward to future Buzz Books Compilations!
This is a really comprehensive sampler of books from authors I know and love, authors I've heard of and never read, and authors I've never heard of before. It contains books for everyone with the following sections:
- Young Adult
As I went through this summary, I skipped through, focusing on authors and titles that interested me the most, but these quick excerpts are perfect for me to have anytime I have a few minutes of downtime to just take a glance at any book that sounds interesting, and get it added to my to-read list once it comes out.
Comprehensive catalog of new books being released in the next year. I enjoyed discovering the new books that will soon be available for purchase and reading.
Buzz Books 2022 Fall/Winter is a great look into what is in the pipeline for upcoming book publications. It includes fiction, debut authors, non-fiction, and young adult. Because the extended reading excerpts were often several chapters, I really got a feel for the book and author’s writing style. I added many new titles to my TBR list and counting the days until some of my favorite authors release dates.
Thanks so much for publishing this – I highly recommend for anyone who loves to read!
"Think of it as a special issue of your favorite literary magazine." Yes, please. I also like to think of Buzz Books 2022 as Book Christmas. I want 'em all, and I can't decide which to unwrap first. As is Publishers Lunch's custom, they've curated their selection of upcoming fall/winter titles into four parts: Fiction, Debut, Nonfiction, and Young Adult. I've selected and requested five titles (3 Fiction, 1 debut, and 1 Nonfiction) and a certain "Bridgerton-esque YA romance with an all-Black cast" is calling to me, too.
“The day we got back from London they hired armed guards for our house because all these ex-pats over there kept telling them how dangerous Karachi is. Give me dangerous and keep your boiled cabbage, Londoners.”
From Best of Friends by Kamila Shamsie, (the author of Home Fire )
Shamsie’s book is just one of the titles that I’ll be keeping an eye out for.
At the beginning of these Publisher's Lunch samplers, they always list a lot of authors with new titles coming out but whose works aren’t promoted here. They include Kate Atkinson Elizabeth Strout, and Frederick Backman, among others.
There are four sections in the book: Fiction, Debut, Nonfiction. Young Adult. There are usually several paragraphs of description before each entry to help you decide whether to continue.
Sometimes, a page or two of the book is all I need, but now and then, I get so engrossed in a story that I feel rudely interrupted and cheated when I reach “You’ve just read an excerpt from…”
I’m sure many readers will be interested in Shamsie’s new book, quoted above, as well as The Last Chairliftby John Irving: Aspen, Colorado, skiing, unconventional family, ghosts.
One that appeals to me is The Light Pirate by Lily Brooks-Dalton: Florida, hurricane, trust-me-know-it-all husband, extremely pregnant wife.
Best-selling author Alice Feeney’s new one is Daisy Darker, about a family gathered for an 80th birthday celebration in an old house on a tidal island. While the island is cut off from the mainland, Nana is found dead, and then another person dies, and so it goes. The promotional material says:
“With a wicked wink to Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None, Daisy Darker’s unforgettable twists will leave readers reeling.”
Sound good? Then there’s Such a Pretty Girl by T. Greenwood, which sounds very contemporary, judging by this description from the promotional material.
“A controversial photo of her as a pre-teen has been found in the possession of a wealthy investor recently revealed as a pedophile and a sex trafficker—with an inscription to him from Ryan’s mother on the back.”
A debut that sounds excellent is Onyi Nwabineli's Someday, Maybe. I think the author’s background alone suggests an interesting outlook.
“ABOUT THE AUTHOR Born in Benin, Nigeria, Onyi Nwabineli grew up in Glasgow, the Isle of Man, Newcastle, and now lives in London.”
This prologue is enough to make me want to read more:
“Around the time my husband was dying, I was chipping ice from the freezer in search of the ice cube tray wedged in the back. But only because I was taking a break from filling his voice mail with recriminations about his failure to communicate his whereabouts. The memory of this along with countless other things would weave together the tapestry of blame I laid upon myself in the days and weeks after his death.
Therefore, in the spirit of continued honesty, here are three things you should know about my husband:
“ 1. He was the great love of my life despite his penchant for going incommunicado,
2. He was, as far as I and everyone else could tell, perfectly happy. Which is significant because…
3. On New Year’s Eve, he committed suicide.
And here is one thing you should know about me:
1. I found him.
Bonus fact: No. I am not okay.”
The last one I’ll mention, Windfall: The Prairie Woman Who Lost Her Way and the Great-Granddaughter Who Found Her by Erika Bolstad is a nonfiction that deals with an interesting contemporary issue - Who owns what? This is from the publisher’s promotion, not an excerpt from the book.
“Author Erika Bolstad was shocked to learn she had inherited mineral rights in North Dakota in the throes of an oil bonanza.
. . .
Windfall is a fascinating cultural examination that explores the entitled mentality that has long defined white settlers in the American West and its consequences on the landscape and its original inhabitants. Told in dual narratives, the story of a remarkable historical woman with the modern-day journey of her great-granddaughter seeking to uncover her family’s history. In addition, timely themes related to environmentalism and climate change driven by the oil business are at the center of this story.”
These free sampler books are always good value. You don’t have to be a NetGalley reviewer or run a blog or anything to download them from Publisher’s Lunch.
I did get mine from NetGalley, so thanks to them and to Publisher’s Lunch for these books. There are separate samplers for Romance and other genres. Go forth and enjoy!
I love reading the Buzz Books publication each season as it highlights the most anticipated books of the season! There are so many wonderful sounding books coming out in the Fall and Winter....I cannot wait to read them! Thank you for the opportunity to read this.
Okay I am obsessed! There are so many incredible books coming out this fall! I'm so grateful for this because honestly I wouldn't have known about HALF of these books and how they were coming out without it! I cannot WAIT to read all of these! My heart is singing with joy while my wallet cries in my pocket under the prospects of spending more money hahahaha!
Excellent resource!! Interested in upcoming novels? Look no further. This book gives not only excerpts of novels but links to request them. What more could a book lover want?
Perusing the books for the upcoming 2022 Fall/Winter is like searching for a fine wine. You never know what sample is going to tempt you, want you to taste it, or pass it by.
I am looking forward to so many of the fiction and non-fiction releases this year. Such a great variety of tastes to offer up your readers. Thank you to all the publishers and authors!
Another greaet synopsis of what is to come in publishing. These offer such a great resource to readers. Also enjoy the excerpts which gives me opportunities to talk about upcoming options for our bookclub. Please keep making these.
