Another great edition of Buzz Books, this time dedicated to the romance genre! I don't typically read romance, so this sampler was a great way to experience the many different aspects of romance: Historical, Suspense, Fantasy and Paranormal. After a warm and welcoming introduction, there are twenty titles featured. Each entry includes a quick summary, a lengthy excerpt, an author's bio and publication information. Many of the excerpts include a helpful link to the full version on Netgalley! I am really excited about Twilight at Blueberry Barrens by Colleen Coble, Now That It's You by Tawna Fenske, On Second Thought by Kristan Higgins, Sunset in Central Park by Sarah Morgan, and A Portrait of Emily Price by Katherine Reay.

Buzz Books 2016: Romance is a great way to get acquainted with upcoming romance titles that are sure to be hits!

I just love this idea! You get to read exerts from many different books to see if.you will like them. Most of the stories have a request link at the end and I will admit I clicked on many of them. So many good novels coming out! I requested quite a few, wished for one and added some to my TBR pile! The best thing about Book Buzz is that I am exposed to books I normally wouldn't even look at and that expands my comfort zone. I love finding new authors and am usually pleasantly surprised when I request a book from Book Buzz that is outside my normal genre and wind.up loving the book!

I found the "2016 Romance Publishing Preview" to be very good and helpful for ordering romance. Definitely useful! I would consider this book a tool for librarians and not something that I would necessarily purchase for the public. I would absolutely recommend this title to other librarians purchasing for romance.

Buzz Books Romance is a great way to get out of a rut and try subgenres you would normally avoid. I usually read historicals (and there are some great ones in here!) but was also able to find some new contemporary authors to try, bwahaha. Huzzah for finding more catnip!

Book Buzz 2016 Romance has a very strong list of historical and paranormal romance for the rest of the year. Already looking forward to reading and recommending new titles.

Was this review helpful?

I have read other preview books before, but Buzz Books by “Publishers Lunch” is, by far, the best one I have ever read. It includes many different types of romances such as historical, contemporary, thriller and so on.

In the introduction, the editor reveals that this book contains “some of the most anticipated new titles appearing next season.” This is important to me because I have read other review books that had lots of unknown authors and very few of the popular ones. Although, I always look forward to new authors, I usually impatiently await for the next books by my favorite authors.

The next chapter includes an overview of each included author’s book. It manages to give us a small taste of the characters and plot in each book so we can decide if we may be interested or not. Then, each subsequent chapter after that is devoted to one author and their latest book.
Each chapter begins with a nice summary of one of the included books. This is not just a reprint of the information on the back of the book. This is a longer, more explicit, summary (no spoilers included) which is usually a minimum of one page. This is followed by an extended excerpt from the book (longer than most other excerpts available), and information about the author. Finally, Buzz Books includes the price and the publishing date of the book with a link to enable the reader to preorder the book.

If a reader likes to list the names of favorite new books, and, then, use it to make a list to refer to for the future –as I do - then this is the perfect book for us. And the best part – this book is free!
I, sincerely, hope this group intends to put out a new Buzz Book for every season because I would love to find out more future information about my favorite authors and their new books.

Was this review helpful?

I love the Buzz Books samplers and I am so excited there is a romance one! There are so many great authors included in this, and I can't wait to add some of these books to my TBR list.

Was this review helpful?

The ones I'm most excited for seem to mostly come from the historical list. The first one I preordered was Wild, Wicked Scot and from there I also preordered both once a Soldier and Once a Rebel. The Illusionist's Apprentice is the one I'm most excited for - who can resist Houdini?

'After the Wedding[ by Milan was already on order because, well, Milan, of course, and is mentioned in the introduction of this collection..

'Follow Me' is on hold at the library for when it comes out, as who can resist a good thriller?

As always I love these samplers and they make buying books so much easier - you can check whether you like the writing style or not, and it gets you so hyped up for so many books!

Was this review helpful?

This is such a great idea! I loved getting to read a preview of the upcoming books, and Sarah Wendell's (or whoever did the season overview) preview was very helpful. I will be adding a lot of titles to my shopping wish list!

Was this review helpful?

This is a really great publication for anyone that wants to know what is coming out in romance in the future! There are 20 different books being showcased and you will be surprised at all they have included. I loved that there were new to me authors on here as well as well known and loved authors in every kind of romance I love! There is historical romance, sports romances, thrillers and romantic suspense, westerns, contemporary comedy and paranormal-stand alone novels and continuing series as well.

At the end of each book they feature, there is a link where you can request a copy from Netgalley! There are other books you can find listed in other copies of Buzz Books for fall/winter and Young adult Publications as well, but this one is just for romance!

I really appreciate this publication, and I can see some of my favorite authors of romance listed here! I have to say this is one of the best publications I have ever seen for book to be published in the near future. It looks like a promising future with some awesome romance coming out!

I gave this 5 stars!

I love reading these samplers. Each snippet was of a different genre and by a different Author. Needless to say, I now own several new books on my Kindle after finishing this book!!

It was a delight to be introduced to new Authors. I think these samplers should be published more often. It would give Readers new Authors to pursue. It would also get those Readers who are devoted to certain Authors a chance to step out of their comfort zone and read new ones. Just a suggestion.

I LOVE these Buzz Books because we get an amazing taste of what is coming out in books in the genres we like and love, as well as learning which of our favorite authors will be having NEW books releasing as well! We get to find this information out well ahead of time as to when they are releasing! This is a first! THIS BOOK IS NEW AND SPECIFICALLY FOR THE "ROMANCE" GENRE!
In the description up above it talks about the full titles being available to request from NetGalley, and yes, at the end of most every sample we are lucky enough to read, sometimes there is a link to be able to request the entire book for review! These links for request are for book bloggers/reviewers, librarians and a for other people in the book occupations in which it would benefit the book and the author to get their books read ahead of time and to have some 'buzz' started prior to their release. The people in those positions do get to request the full titles right from the inside of this book, which is AMAZING! I love that ability! Also, these books are another way of knowing what new books are coming out by some of our favorite authors if you don't follow them already, too! Sometimes even when following an author, we may not know always know of what is planned to come out for them, or which books will be coming sooner than later! One thing this book does stress is that these release dates printed in this book are tentative, and can still change. We are reminded of in this book as these dates are targeted release dates. It seems like a LOT of new books are targeted to release in September (after the kids go back to school!), October, and then a LOT of them in January! What a GREAT WAY but to start the NEW YEAR! I'll take it!
In this Romance genre, the publisher has broken it down into sub-genres, which include Historical, Historical Mystery, Suspense, Fantasy and Paranormal Romance, Contemporary Romance, and there are a few Christmas books planned, too! There are even more sub-genres under Romance they talk about in this book, just as many as there are separate genres of these as they stand on their own. It's amazing how many new Romance titles are coming out starting in just a few weeks, pretty much! Now is the time to grab this from Amazon for free! Or you can pick this title up from NetGalley! Yes, these books are ALWAYS FREE! It's a great way for them to advertise the books, and a great way for us to know what is coming out and when! You're going to LOVE these books! Enjoy!
One more quick thing! In the Description of this book, it states the NEXT Buzz Books book will be releasing in January! Watch for it on NetGalley and at Amazon, too! These books are and always have been FREE! They are intentionally free so you'll start some 'buzz' about them!
I received a free copy of this book from the Publisher, PublishersLunch, and NetGalley to read and write a review of my own opinion.

Really interesting sampler book that introduced me to a few authors I hadn't read before, but that I'd like to read now. There are samples for 20 books in this one publication, most excerpts are from Chapter 1 which is great, but a couple jump in part way through the book which I didn't like as much. There are links at the end of lots of the samplers that lead you back to NetGalley to request the book, you don't get automatically approved, as usual it would depend on the publisher and the country you live in. But really interesting way of getting the 'buzz' of books around, although now I really, really want a couple of them (Kristan Higgins & Jill Shalvis) and of course they're the ones without any links!

Buzz Books 2016: Romance, is a fabulous reference guide for bibliophiles. It unveils for the reader, some of the most promising titles, that have yet to be released, in romance. A sampling of twenty novels with excerpts are showcased in this book, in the genres, historical fiction, suspense, fantasy, western, contemporary, and paranormal romance.

Being an avid reader, I love finding new talented authors as well as following my all-time favorite ones. Now, that I have discovered Buzz Books, I’ll be sure to check out what other genre editions PublishersLunch has to offer.

Highly recommended.

I received this book from the publisher, via NetGalley, in exchange for an honest review.

An indispensable guide for romance bloggers that will save you hours of research to determine your next read. Being a voracious and eclectic romance book reader, I especially loved that the guide touched upon many sub-genres within the romance classification. The NetGalley links to the actual galleys for the excerpted romances also makes this guide extremely user friendly and again a huge time saver. Best of all, I found a few upcoming releases that I wasn't aware of and I definitely don't want to miss!

Fantabulous! I don't read that much straight up romance anymore but I was curious about this so requested it on Netgalley. I actually enjoyed most of the excerpts. I recognize a few of the authors. Most I do not but would be willing to give them a try. I do like Jill Shavis and she has one in this. It is nice to preview the titles and think about, buy/request the ones that seem very appealing. Highly recommended!

And thank you to netgalley for giving me a digital copy in exchange for an review.

Buzz Books is a convenient way to sample snippets of upcoming promising new books from a specific genre. For the first time, they offered a romance edition; the books are all due to be published late this year. Length varied from a couple of pages to a dozen pages or more. I think two of the books were novellas, two were Christmas-themed, a couple were paranormal romances, a couple were western romances, one or two were historical, so it was a good mix. I requested four Advance Reader Copies and considered at least two more. Not everything was exactly what I would have chosen, but I read two-thirds of the stories completely and skimmed the ones I found less interesting. I admit that I wasn't sure I'd like the Buzz Books format when I first noticed them, but I read one a few months ago and found it to be a great resource. I expect this to be equally useful.

Minor glitch: The selections include links to ARC sites and/or publisher sites following the sample. Most of them were fine, but I clicked one and the book later showed up on my netgalley approved list without me requesting it. This is like clicking on a Check Price button that turns out to be a mislabeled Buy It Now button.

If you read romances by the armful, or a variety of different romance sub-genres, this is an excellent way to sample a lot of books, gain exposure to new authors, and get a feel for a variety of writers. The only downside? It's entirely too easy to start adding to your To Be Read list!

In particular, I like the I introduction which gives a brief overview of the books included, as well as others in each genre that are soon to published. This was a very helpful book for avid readers, to be able to look ahead to see what books are coming up within the next few months. Several synopses include the book link to NetGalley for requesting. I have seen these books offered before but this is the first time I have requested one. I will request again. Very helpful tool.

This book is free on Amazon and NetGalley. Grab a copy, it’s a terrific way to navigate around most noteworthy books to be released in the next few months. For a serious romance reader, it’s an excellent guide to upcoming books releasing in the next few months. Almost all the sub-genres are represented: Historical, Western, Sports Romance, Contemporary Comedy, Thrillers, and Romantic Suspense. There are enticing excerpts offered as a quick look-see, and I have to say, I’m excited about reading some books from lots of new authors to me, as well as, books from a few of my favorite authors. A great idea, and a wealth of information in one title.

I absolutely love this concept and really enjoyed reading the various excerpts included in this collection. This was my first experience with one of the Buzz Books collections, and I am definitely looking forward to future editions. While not every story is one I would seek out, I found several books that I need to find and read.

This collection shared excerpts from 20 different books with all different types of storylines. Some of the books shared are debuts, others are from long established authors. I added at least 10 of the books featured to my wish list and look forward to reading the full story.

I think my only complaint would be that the excerpts end right as I was getting involved with the story. Which of course, only makes me want to get the book all the more… so it’s done it’s job!

I'm not much of a romance reader, but some of these piqued my interest. I've made a couple of request, but I'm usually outside the regions that publishers want so I'm not holding my breath.

Interesting collection. I have discovered some new authors. It had covered many sub genres which I enjoyed

I love being able to read scenes from books that aren't released yet. The ability to get a glimpse inside something that will be out in the upcoming months is fun and makes getting excited over a book even easier. I enjoyed getting to know new to me authors and their upcoming works!

I'm not usually the biggest romance fan. But these sampler of titles did manage to put a couple on my radar!

First time I've picked up a Buzz Books collection - it was really nice. Now I have to be patient and wait for my choices to come out!

Do you like romance books to read? I often have found it confusing what type of romance! Not to mention author.. I do like romance but my romance books are pretty restricted until I read this! Do you wish you could read parts of the book before buying a romance? This is the book for you! I don't always know if I will enjoy the way an author writes his/her romance novel. It is also a great way to find new romance authors. I did!

This is a great source for booksellers and librarians, especially those that do ordering, to make informed decisions with their precious dollars.

This is a wonderful collective of great authors, some I have read from before, like Ashenden, Balogh, London, Roads, just to name a few. I really liked the sneak peek into these stories and am very thankful to Netgalley. I have had this book on my TBR for quite some time and just started on it last night and just finished. These authors have given us the summary along with a an excerpt into some awesome books. Some authors that I will be picking up to read their books are Julia London with Wild Wicked Scot, Jill Shalvis with The Trouble with Mistletoe, Tiffany Snow's Follow Me and Lori Wilde A Weding for Christmas. I was captivated by these stores and will be adding them to my ever growing TBR, Lol.
