Buzz Books 2020: Fall/Winter – Publishers Lunch
I really appreciate and enjoy curated information especially about books and general writing insights. NetGalley is in an excellent position to curate, analyse and promote many books to be published with leading publishers.
Buzz Books 2020: Fall/Winter gives reading addicts the opportunity to see what’s coming from new and favourite authors. Some of my favourites I’m looking forward to are John Banville, Kevin Barry, Fanny Flagg, Matt Haig, Ken Follett, Fredrik Backman, Marilynne Robinson and Jonathan Lethem. Plus all the big thriller writers such as James Patterson, Jo Nesbo, Michael Connelly, David Baldacci, Lee Child, John Grisham etc. have books being released.
Favourite authors are a given and I’ll read them for sure, but for me, the huge value this book brought, was the chance to read excerpts from the debut and emerging authors. Some who seem to be getting a lot of press include; Max Seeck (The Witch Hunter), Simon Stephenson (Set My Heart to Five), Richard Osman (The Thursday Murder Club) and Gina Wilkinson (When the Apricots Bloom).
The book is split into four parts: Fiction, Debut, Nonfiction and Young Adult, plus a very useful index.
This is an extremely useful reference and well worth getting your hands on. Some gems to look forward to and some exciting possibilities. Many thanks to Dita for her encouraging review and recommendation, and also Publishers Lunch and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC copy in return for an honest review.
