Get the books of Winter Institute

(even if you won’t be in Denver!)

We love helping our community discover new books of interest. As part of our efforts to help booksellers in particular, we coordinated this feature with the American Booksellers Association, which just appeared in their weekly newsletter, Bookselling This Week. Seeing as these are some truly exciting books, we want to share them with our entire community.

Via NetGalley, booksellers are now able to preview e-galleys of a standout list of books that will be available in the Galley Room at ABA’s Winter Institute 11. For those who won’t be in Denver from January 23–26 (or for those who just want to get started reading right away!), here we highlight 10 titles to request (or wish for) on NetGalley right now. Plus, the beloved Buzz Books are back!

2016 Adult Buzz Book2016 YA Buzz Book

NetGalley is pleased to again be partnering with Publishers Lunch on the seventh Buzz Books edition, which evokes all the excitement of Winter Institute with significant samples of some of the spring/summer publishing season’s biggest titles and potential breakouts and new discoveries. BUZZ BOOKS 2016: Spring/Summer presents readings from 40 adult books, and BUZZ BOOKS 2016: Young Adult Spring/Summer gathers excerpts from 20 forthcoming YA titles. At the end of most excerpts, you will find a link to the full galley on NetGalley!

Everyone Brave is Forgiven

 

This season shows no shortage of breakout books from familiar names in literary fiction. From Chris Cleave, author of the #1 New York Times bestselling Little Bee, comes Everyone Brave is Forgiven (Simon & Schuster)—a spellbinding novel about three unforgettable individuals thrown together by war, love, and their search for belonging in the ever-changing landscape of WWII London. Look for it also in Publishers Lunch’s Buzz Books 2016: Spring/Summer.

 

Eligible

 

 

 

From Curtis Sittenfeld, New York Times bestselling author of Prep and American Wife, comes a modern retelling of Pride and Prejudice in Eligible (Random House). Equal parts homage to Jane Austen and bold literary experiment, Eligible is a brilliant, playful, and delicious saga for the twenty-first century.

 

As Good As Gone

 

 

The American West is bestselling author Larry Watson’s forte, and in As Good as Gone (Algonquin Books), his tenth novel, he has created his most vivid, genuine antihero yet in Calvin Sidey, a man stuck in a myth. With the crisp, restrained prose for which Larry Watson is revered, As Good as Gone is a story of a man increasingly at odds with the world.

 

Here Comes the Sun

 

 

 

From bestselling authors we move to highly anticipated debuts, such as Here Comes the Sun by Nicole Dennis-Benn (W. W. Norton & Company), in which a cast of unforgettable women battle for independence while a maelstrom of change threatens their Jamaican village. From a much-heralded new writer, Here Comes the Sun offers a dramatic glimpse into a vibrant, passionate world most outsiders see simply as paradise.

 

Bricks That Built

 

 

Kate Tempest, a major talent in the poetry and music worlds, sits poised to become a major novelist with The Bricks that Built the Houses (Bloomsbury). Driven by empathy and ethics, it’s a blazing and beautiful novel, wise but never cynical, generous and vigorous. Love animates this debut novel, rich with characters and restless in perspective, sprawling across London.

 

Maestra

 

 

L.S. Hilton’s Maestra (G.P. Putnam’s Sons) is already stirring buzz from Hollywood to London and back again as one of the year’s big new thriller discoveries. With the cunning of Gone Girl‘s Amy Dunne, and as dangerous as The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo‘s Lisbeth Salander, the femme fatale of this Talented Mr. Ripley–esque psychological thriller is sexy, smart, and very, very bad in all the best ways. You’ll also meet her in Buzz Books 2016: Spring/Summer, along with the author of the next title on our list…

 

All Tomorrows Parties

 

 

In All Tomorrow’s Parties (Grove Press) Rob Spillman (editor of Tin House magazine) traces his past to craft a deeply affecting coming-of-age portrait of an artist’s life that serves as an exhilarating cultural tour of the last quarter century through the lens of two transforming cities, drawing on musical inspiration from the Sex Pistols to Sonic Youth and the words of literary heroes such as Paul Bowles and Ken Kesey.

 

Flawed

 

 
Must-reads in the young adult realm include Flawed (Feiwel & Friends), a breathtaking YA debut from award-winning and bestselling author Cecelia Ahern. The Scarlet Letter meets Divergent in this thoughtful and thrilling novel that depicts a society in which obedience is paramount and rebellion is punished. And where one young woman decides to take a stand that could cost her everything.

 

Every Exquisite Thing

 

 

 

Silver Linings Playbook author Matthew Quick brings us Every Exquisite Thing (Little, Brown Books for Young Readers), a heartfelt YA novel that serves as a celebration of the self and the formidable power of story. Find an excerpt in Buzz Books 2016: Spring/Summer.

 

Tell Wind Fire

 

 

 

Finally, Tell the Wind and Fire (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt Children’s Book Group) by New York Times bestseller Sarah Rees Brennan is already a much wished-for book on NetGalley. This magic-infused tale of romance and revolution is lush, dramatic, and poignantly timely.
