Overview

Last year's Buzz Books 2012 presented passionate readers their first look at many titles that went on to be hailed as ""Best Books of the Year""--including M. L. Stedman’s The Light Between Oceans; Kevin Powers’ The Yellow Birds; Peter Heller’s The Dog Stars; and Amanda Coplin’s The Orchardist; and John Kenney’s Truth In Advertising. We also featured major new works from Junot Diaz (This Is How You Lose Her); Barbara Kingsolver (Flight Behavior); Dennis Lehane (Live By Night); J.R. Moehringer (Sutton); and even Neil Young’s memoir (Waging Heavy Peace). Readers gave us rave reviews online, added new discoveries to their to-be-read lists, and asked us for more.

The new Buzz Books takes another publishing insider event--independent booksellers' Winter Institute--and makes it a major launch and discovery point. Enjoy substantial samples from some of the books that booksellers, reviewers, publishers and others are already talking about as some of the big new literary discoveries on the way.

There is an abundance of potential breakouts from highly-regarded novelists, including Kate Atkinson (Life After Life), Stephen King’s son Joe Hill (NOS4A2), Meg Wolitzer (The Interestings), Ruth Ozeki (A Tale For The Time Being), Philipp Meyer (The Son), Therese Anne Fowler (Z: A Novel Of Zelda Fitzgerald), Alexander Maksik (A Marker To Measure Drift), and Benjamin Percy (Red Moon).

Once again, we present the first look at the anticipated debuts of new authors including Pushcart winner Anthony Marra (A Constellation Of Vital Phenomena); Caine Prize winner NoViolet Bulawayo (We Need New Names) and Anton DiSclafani (The Yonahlossee Riding Camp For Girls).

Hot nonfiction includes Lily Koppel’s The Astronaut Wives Club, already in development for film by Imagine Entertainment, and Skinny Bitch co-author Rory Freedman's Beg, on a new way of regarding all animals. There is also an extensive overview of the entire publishing season, curating over 100 more notable books to look for.

    I have broadend my choices of books. I chose Buzz Books because it was so different from anything I had read before. Buss Books is a sampler of over 25 Top new titles on the market. They range from fiction, nonfiction, YA and science. You can select by author, category and publisher. It was good to try out some new genres for a change. I found ones I liked and some I didn't care for. Now it's your turn try something new.
