Buzz Books 2017: Fall/Winter
Without Buzz Books, I wouldn’t know of all these glorious titles heading our way! Get your lists fired up friends!
What a list of forthcoming books. How I didn’t know Amy Tan has a memoir out on October 17, 2017 is beyond me. I am highly anticipating it!
Janet Fitch, author of White Oleander has a new novel coming out, and I say Finally! I have been waiting and am excited. The Revolution of Marina M.
For fans of Isabel Allende, a moving love story will be out October 31, 2017 In The Midst Of Winter
It’s an exciting fall/winter with the best authors! Louise Erdich’s novel Future Home of the Living God will be out November 14, 2017
The Ninth Hour by Alice McDermott is forthcoming September 19, 2017
Of course Alice Hoffman’s prequel to her beloved Practical Magic is out October and I have already read the arc, giving it full stars. I felt down coming towards the ending, I didn’t want to leave The Owens’ family, I had so missed the magic! A picture of the cover can’t do it justice, it is one of the prettiest I’ve seen in years. Much cover love. I will post my review closer to the release date per the publisher’s request.
Chloe Benjamin, the author of The Anatomy of Dreams has The Immortalists out January 9, 2018- I have been waiting somewhat impatiently for approval for this arc. The few people who’ve read it raved about the forthcoming story of siblings that are privy, early on, to the date of their deaths. Intriguing.
Jennifer Egan’s Manhatten Beach takes the reader to Brooklyn during the Great Depression. I am currently reviewing an arc and it’s moving, beautifully atmospheric and I know it will be enjoyed by many. It is certainly haunting and another novel I won’t be posting for awhile. I feel like a hoarder when I am able to get my book wormy hands on such wonderful fiction before others, because damn if I don’t love to gush about the good books and share the love.
I adored The Education of Dixie Dupree by Donna Everhart, and I am so excited that she has written a new novel that sounds just as beautiful. The Road to Bittersweet will be out December 26, 2017. This is another arc on my highly anticipating list. With sweet covers and lovely titles it always seems as though the reading would be light, but not a chance. Don’t be fooled into thinking pretty covers mean breezy reads.
My curiosity is piqued about The Lost Girls of Camp Forevermore by Kim Fu. Young girls at a sleep-away camp stranded without adults, help, guidance and what happens in the years that follow?
Pulitzer Prize winning author Jeffrey Eugenides, yes I am a fan, will have his first collection of short fiction coming out October 3, 2017. Those few people who already read it- I’m so jealous! Though this book is towards the end of my list, he needs no promoting from me, so I think I’m forgiven.
One that is sure to cause some discomfort, and yet I know so many of my fellow readers have already added to their list is All We Shall Know by Donal Ryan. ‘Martin Toppy is the son of a famous Traveller and the father of my unborn child. He’s seventeen, I’m thirty-three. I was his teacher. I’d have killed myself by now if I was brave enough. I don’t think it would hurt the baby. His little heart would stop with mine. He wouldn’t feel himself leaving one world of darkness for another, his spirit untangling itself from me.’ That shared from Goodreads, oh my!
Is it just me or are covers getting so much more beautiful. Ode to physical books, because regardless of the ebooks I get, I somehow always hunt down physical copies. I can’t resist. I may die buried in a pile of dusty books one day, but I will have a smile on my face.
It’s going to be a great year in reading. I love the sneaky peaks Buzz Books gives us!
