This is one of the best resources to read when it comes to upcoming titles. I always discover a few books that i have never heard about in this book. If your looking to find out what is coming up and want a sneak peek I highly recommend this.
Thank you for another great addition of Book Buzz! Always such great titles and a great way to get a look into the upcoming books to see what would be good to read in the coming months!
Fantastic selection!! I cannot wait to get the full novels!!
Thank you for yet another detailed, well-crafted, and helpful edition of Buzz Books! I especially love the little summaries that come before each excerpt, so I can quickly and easily see if a title might be for me. This looks like another promising batch; I can't wait to read THE ONE MAN, THE TERRANAUTS, THE ORPHAN'S TALE, NEWS OF THE WORLD, TODAY WILL BE DIFFERENT, LITTLE NOTHING, HISTORY OF WOLVES, MISCHLING, ALL OUR WRONG TODAYS, WE ARE UNPREPARED (which I was stoked to see on NetGalley!), THE COMET SEEKERS, TRUEVINE, HIDDEN FIGURES, and WHERE AM I NOW?.
Wonderful edition of Buzz Books excerpts. This is a great group of titles to choose from; several I have had my eye on for quite some time. Thank you so much for allowing us the opportunity to use!!
Oh so many awesome new.books!! I've added a bunch to my TBR pile and also requested a bunch! What a great way to find new to me authors. My favorite section is the debut authors. I love to explore new and up and coming authors. As soon as I know there is a new Book Buzz I run to it.
Sneak peek at the books coming out this fall, even includes excerpts for each title, and there are a variety of fiction, non-fiction, and debut fiction titles. I found some additions to my TBR list!
Buzz Books 2016 : Fall / Winter is the top 40 new books soon to come with a link to NetGalley for a chance to read the book before it comes out in the Fall / Winter. The excerpts give you a glimpse of what the story is like and how the Author convoys the words that gives you a chance to see if you like the book or not. With 40 new books to choose from, this book will delight any bookworm!! I love reading books that have a list of new books to read! I like how they include a link to NetGalley so you can just go request the book after reading the excerpts, how cool is that!! My TBR list is probably hating me after reading this book but it's full of great reads that will put a smile on a true bookworm! Thank You to Publishers Lunch for coming out with these books that give me just another reason to buy more books! I received this book from the Publisher via NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
This provides a terrific opportunity to see what's coming in the fall and it's great that so many titles can be requested right after reading an excerpt . I requested several titles and am anxiously awaiting the availability of others . Thanks so much for this great planning tool!
As the blurb says, as an avid reader there is nothing like the excitement of receiving a buzz book. It truly is a book to savour as you click excitedly through it looking for interesting books both from authors you know and ones you are yet to discover. I really like how the book is set out in different genres and then alphabetically which makes it very easy to find books by your favourite authors and books that take your fancy. The excerpts from the top books are great too and let's you try the books first before buying or requesting. This is a must read book for all readers! Thank you to Netgalley and the publishers for the chance to review this book. I have had a thoroughly enjoyable evening looking through this book!

This is a gift from the book gods...all of them. It helps me to plan my reading and when I can offer my opinions on the gifts of NetGalley and publishers. Thank you!
This is a fantastic resource for all serious readers. There are extracts of several up and coming novels which often have links to galleys for them at the end. That way if you enjoyed an excerpt you can then go and request the full copy. Several of the books in this edition have widgets, so you can read the full book instantly, no waiting for approval required. As ever this book was organised so that you can find what you want and skip over the genres you know won't interest you.
Really awesome resource. Can't wait to get my hands on some of these books. I only wish there were more widgets for titles available on NetGalley!
Such an awesome collection that gives readers the opportunity to not only view upcoming novels but also read an excerpt. I am definitely looking forward to reading these novels!
A wonderful way to get a sneak peak at what are sure to be the hot titles of this fall and winter. My TBR thanks you!
This list is a godsend to reviewers. You get to read about all the upcoming titles, and get a taste of them by reading the excerpts. Not only that, contact information for each writer and the publishing house is also given at the end of each excerpts so that you can contact them for further correspondence. Thank you ! Can't wait to request all the titles featured in this list.
I really look forward to these books. There are many samples inside of books that are going to be releasing in the fall and I enjoy making a list of all the books whose samples left me wanting to read more. I highly recommend this great resource book!
I love these collections. I told myself I had way too many books to read already and what did I do? I still picked this up. And yes I requested a few of them. This collection is heavy with World War Two fiction if that is something that interests you..then you hit the jackpot.
I love these collections giving a taster of forthcoming books!
I love these samplers. They are great for staying on top of upcoming releases, but also for finding some new-to-you authors who might end up becoming favorites. So many things to look forward to!
Once again a sublime selection of noteworthy fiction and nonfiction. I'm also looking forward to the publications by several debut authors, a special selection which is also included in this sampler.book. Will be marking my calendar, I cannot wait to get my hands on many of these books..
This was my first Buzz Books and now I know what all the buzz is about! Reading the excerpts are a great way to decide on a book and I love knowing what is coming down the pike so I can line up my reading list. Thank you for such a wonderful publication.
Not that I'm looking forward to Fall or Winter , but I want everyone of these books.
This is a great way to get a sneak peak at the upcoming titles for Fall and Winter. It is an awesome resource that includes excerpts from the novels, allowing for avid readers/reviewers to add a whole lot of new titles to the TBR list.
I absolutely love the Buzz Books samplers! They are truly an invaluable resource in choosing titles to request & review!
Once again Buzz Books is here with great recommendations and helpful excerpts from new works by authors like T.C. Boyle and Ann Patchett. Personally, I am looking forward to Marie Benedict's The Other Einstein and have also heard much positive "buzz" about Paulette Jiles' News of the World. And that doesn't even touch the debut fiction -- a baker's dozen set of titles, plus several non-fiction titles spanning a range of subjects.
Great overview of upcoming titles! This is such a great tool for librarians trying to stay ahead of the curve.
Thank you for the chance to taste the new books coming this Fall.
I loved seeing what books are coming out later this year! The sampling was widespread, and I enjoyed hearing about the book debuts as well as authors I'm already familiar with. Lots of books on my to-read list!
I love having this opportunity to read just enough to know those titles I want to read in full. This exciting collection lets me tell our patrons a taste of what is to come!
LOVE this sampler! There are so many books I want to read from this list. I already have The Other Einstein for review.
those books are amazing. You learn a lot by browsing through them, and I enjoy them. A must read for educators, librarians or anyone addicted to books.
I love getting to see what books are coming up! These samplers are so invaluable; thank you for doing them every season.
Buzz Books are a great resource for planning, reading, and reviewing upcoming books. I especially appreciate the broad variety of genres included, with books by both debut and well-established authors. A great preview and lots of books to be excited about!
Some very interesting titles inside! Particularly looking forward to reading Ann Patchett, Maria Semple, Marisa Silver, Stephanie Gangi, and Mara Wilson further. I see some definite potential in many of these books to be interesting for our customers. The layout of the Buzz Book is also great in the e-reader format. Very clear and easy to follow. Thanks!
This book has proven to be incredibly useful. I've already picked several titles that interest me. Thank you!!
Always look forward to Buzz Books - great for the reading soul but bad for the wallet!
I always look forward to the newest buzz books. I find books that I may normally over look . I have found many fabulous writers. I like that you get an excerpt to get a taste of what to expect
Each time one of these collections turns up on Netgalley I get really, really excited, because I love finding new authors and new books to read. As always, great collection!
This book is awesome for figuring out what future NetGalley books I want to read. Thank you!
Reading Buzz Books 2016: Fall/Winter was like opening all my Christmas gifts in May!!! What an outstanding sampler. So excited to read so many of the books listed.
If only summer would last forever... but at least I know I have some great books to look forward to when it ends. Great collection of excerpts; yet more books added to my wishlist. Thanks, BuzzBooks!
What a great selection of upcoming novels! Loved reading these chapters, and it made me wish there was more.
I just ADORE Buzz Books. If there is any complain, it would just be my TBR is growing a bit to fast, though for sure, that is nothing to complain about. You did it again Buzz Books. Love it!!
This book sampler gave me a chance to read through some possible book samples. I was even able to request a few galleys from NetGalley. I also talked over some of the titles with my friends and husband and we found some books they would like to read. All in all, a great sampler! I had never read through a book sampler before, but this one presented the books well and I would come back to it again next year for some more reading options.
Love this !!! Not only does it feature titles that I would have been salivating over based on the author alone, it also includes some authors who are totally unknown to me. This will be extremely useful to anyone involved in library collection development, as well as anyone just looking for “the good stuff.” Good work, Publishers Lunch! And thanks to NetGalley for an advance copy in exchange for my honest review. Five stars. Love it!
A great collection of excerpts from upcoming 2016 Fall/Winter releases. The only thing I didn't like was that it reminded me that I will never make my way through my reading list! It is divided into three categories: Fiction, Debut Fiction, and Nonfiction. Most of the excerpts begins with a cover or author photo. I prefer the cover photos, because I will be able to easily recognize them on NetGalley or at the bookstore. Next there is a mini-summary of each book, followed by the first few chapters. At the end of each excerpt is a short bio of the author and important details about the publication. Buzz Books made it so easy to figure out what books to add to my list. The excerpts are long enough to give a good sense of writing style. I saw many books that I won't add to my list, but it is nice to be aware of them so I can recommend them for people who would be interested. The books I'm very excited about: Fiction: Christina's World, No Witness but the Moon, The Couple Next Door, Today Will Be Different. Little Nothing. I have already read I Will Send Rain and it was 5-Star book for me! Debut Fiction: The Mothers, The Wangs vs. The World, History of Wolves. Mischling. The Gentleman, All Our Wrong Todays, The Comet Seekers, Only Daughter Nonfiction: Broken Open, Truevine, Hidden Figures, Where Am I Now? I recommend Buzz Books for anyone who wants to stay up-to-date on upcoming releases.
I always enjoy reading excerpts from upcoming releases to better determine what will work for me and for the readers who follow my recommendations; thanks so much for the opportunity! There are so many wonderful releases for this fall!
Buzz Books 2016: Fall/Winter, https://www.amazon.com/Buzz-Books-2016-Exclusive-Excerpts-ebook/dp/B01ENSMJJO, is another in the series of excerpts from forthcoming books. I received my digital copy from Netgalley, and I plowed straight through, making a list of "don't miss" new titles. The Couple Next Door, by author Shari Lapena, was especially gripping. It's the unsettling story of a couple whose baby goes missing--while they're downing cocktails next door, at a neighbor's party. Check out Buzz Books for previews of 40 great, new reads.
I always find excellent suggestions and excerpts here. My trusted guide, always!
The amount of excerpts in this was ridiculous! I have added so many books to my Amazon wishlist thanks to this sampler. I loved how this was set up by fiction, debut fiction, and nonfiction. It made it so much easier to find titles that I would truly love and might not have heard of. I can't wait for the release date of quite a few of these books now. This is hands down the best sampler on Netgalley!
OMG. This makes me so excited. I hope to have the opportunity to read many of the titles in this book So much to look forward to.
Thanks to Netgalley for an eARC of this book. I love this summary of upcoming titles with links to those available through Netgalley. It is of great assistance as one is trying to sort through the many new titles.
This is amazing! So many good books included can't wait to read them all when they are out.
An excellent collection of previews so now I have a whole list of books to keep an eye out for at the library. I've also told the library about it, so they can see what books they could get in on order for release :) Now my local is signed up to netgalley so they can check out the buzz book samplers too!
A collection of absolutely riveting excerpts from highly anticipated autumn and winter releases. As always, I've found out about novels I otherwise wouldn't have through Buzz Books, especially debut authors' work - it's always intriguing to get a sneak peek of their writing.
I downloaded this edition of Buzz Books as I saw there was an extract of Mara Wilson's upcoming book and wanted to read the extract. I enjoyed reading this and will go on to look at the rest of the extracts. I love the idea of being able to read samplers of the best upcoming books!
I love how this book gives me the option to see what titles to keep an eye out for in the coming months. In this issue, I'm particularly excited for Mercury by Margot Livesey, I Will Send Rain by Rae Meadows, Little Nothing by Marisa Silver (!), The Gentleman by Forrest Leo, The Comet Seekers by Helen Sedgwick, Hidden Figures by Margot Lee Shetterly, and Where Am I Now? by Mara Wilson!
I love these publications! I love being able to read excepts before I decide to request something. Keep them coming,
I was so excited to read samples of the books coming out this fall/winter. I'm looking forward to reading the entire books of many of them!
With the general Buzz Books Guide, I find there are a lot more excerpts to wade through than the YA one, but I think that's because I love a lot of YA, where as, with adult fiction/nonfiction I'm way pickier. Still, I picking up Buzz Books is great because it gives me the opportunity to browse books all in one place so that I can figure out what new releases I'm going to want come fall!!
What a great way to determine what new fall books will be at the top of my TBR pile! Many great books by many great authors! Looking forward to many of the new debut authors too.
This is an incredible book that is usually reserved for publishing industry insiders. As both an English teacher and Facebook Literary group leader, it is wonderful to be able to plan ahead to decide what books to teach or to read.
This collection not only has good excerpts from books, but it also contains an exhaustive list of anticipated books for the fall.
So excited that I was able to get a sneak peek at some of the amazing books coming soon! It is s great that there was a whole section for debut authors. Here are the ones I am most excited to read all the way through - The Terranauts, The Orphan's Tale, I Will Send Rain, By Gaslight, Today Will Be Different Also... Things We Have In Common, The Fire By Night, We Are Unprepared, Only Daughter I will definitely be buying some of these the day they are available!
Always glad to see the Buzz Books arrive, but, especially this issue which seemed to contain more links than usual to the books. As a result, I have a whole stack of new books on my Net Galley shelf.
This is the first time I’ve read any of Buzz Books for the “best books of the…” This one includes the upcoming fall through winter releases. Included are summaries and / or excerpts of some of these next best selections, for those who want to make sure you get them the day they arrive in your local bookstore, or if you want to pre-order from your favorite place to buy books. There are several different genres, with debut writers in their own section. With each book is a mini-biography of the author, which can be especially helpful in the cases of Memoirs / Biographies, and Debut Authors. The excerpts give you a good idea if this is a book that you’ll want to read, invest your time and money in. I’ve already added several to my to-read list! Many thanks to Publishers Lunch BUZZ BOOKS, NetGalley for providing me with an advance copy to read.
I'm intrigued by a lot of these titles and excited what is to come.
This is an incredible reference book. Fiction, nonfiction and debut books are included along with a brief summary, author bio and generous sample of many books. Because of Buzz Books, I am aware of publication dates. In this case, knowledge is not only power, it is the pleasure of anticipation. Because of Buzz Books, I time traveled and saw myself curled up with a stack of books!
As always Buzz Books never disappoints! I am most excited out the Orphans Tale by Pam Jenoff and the Next by Stephanie Gange. Christina's World by Christina Baker Kline and The Other Einstein by Marie Benedict also look really good. Looks like war fiction was a popular topic this fall with a variety of books covering the subject.
A great sampler! I am most interested in The Other Einstein, the Terranauts, The One Man, and Mischling.
I am constantly scouring newsletters, catalogues and websites, looking for my next great read(s). This was like Christmas - so many all in one place! I have my favourite authors and have earmarked Child, Coben, Connelly, Cutter, Grisham, Hannah, Lapena (this one has me really excited!) Moyes, O;Connell, Penny, Sandford and Slaughter. And although I"ve chosen my faves, I appreciated having the opportunity to view all the titles that are going to be hot this fall and winter. It allows me to had them to my reader's advisory list for patrons. Thanks for showcasing debut authors, as well as providing links to download and excerpts to give us a taste. Great idea, hope you can do this more often!
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!
What an amazing resource for a book blogger! Being able to consider an excerpt before requesting a full galley is such a treat. I requested more books than I'd like to admit, but I'm particularly excited about the upcoming novels from Maria Semple, Amor Towles, and Jojo Moyes. The excerpt of Terranauts had me completely engrossed and anticipating its release!
I found this publication extremely useful. It allowed me to expand the list of books I will want to read this winter. The excerpts were engaging and let me know how an author expresses his ideas. I found it most helpful in selecting future readings.
First time I've seen this compilation. It will be a great help in selecting titles for our library (and, of course, for myself!).
I do love these compilations as I am exposed to writing I would never find on my own and the contrasts in this edition are amazing. Loads of new fiction by established authors (Ann Patchet stands out for me) and debut authors(Affinity Konar looks like one worth watching) but the non fiction caught me this time. Amazing books with my favourites being Lauren Collins "When in French" and Beth Macy's "Truevine". The former is about an intelligent, well established woman who reluctantly follows her husband abroad with no knowledge of the language. The scene with the chimney sweep is brilliant and that alone made me want to read the book. Beth Macy's book is "a true story of the Jim Crow south" and tells of a harrowing episode when two young black children who happened to be albino were kidnapped and exhibited in the circus. the book is the story of how their poor, committed family tries to get them back. Strong writing. An excellent, rewarding series and long may it continue. I was given copy of this book by netgalley in return for an honest review.
This was my first time requesting a copy of Buzz Books and I'm so glad I've discovered this wonderful book. There were a couple of excerpts included where I was previously aware of the book, but was uncertain if I wanted to read it. Reading these excerpts helped me to make up my mind. In addition, there were excerpts for many upcoming books that I hadn't heard of, but found interesting and engaging. I have added many books to my want-to-read list! I like that the book has a short summary of the book before the excerpt, as well as additional information and a link to request following the excerpt. It is perfect formatting and so convenient if you choose to request a book right away. I will definitely be requesting more Buzz Books in the future!
This made me so excited for the Fall/Winter releases! I've discovered some gems I hadn't heard about yet and i'm glad to have been given a sneak peak! These Buzz Books are lovely.
Informative and personalized pictures of the authors.. Very helpful when deciding for future acquisitions.
