6 Ways To Find New Books

6 Ways to Find New Books

I am constantly looking for new books to read. I love reading articles about highly anticipated books, and I love to forecast which books are going to generate buzz.

Book forecasting is like a sport for me; if there ever is professional betting on which books will become popular after they’re released, I’d be all in!

The books that catch my interest are usually the to-be-published ones. Here are 6 sources that alert me to new upcoming books:

The BookBub Blog

This website is a free service that helps spread the word about books and where to get the best deals on them. Their blog posts are a wealth of information on new books. Most recently, they published an article called 18 of the Best Psychological Thrillers Coming Summer 2018.

Modern Mrs. Darcy

Anne is a bookworm and a blogger, and her blog is beautiful. She just published an article on The 2018 Summer Reading Guide which is full of really interesting books.

My fellow bloggers always give me good suggestions on new books! This post has my best blogger resources.

Buzz Books by Publisher’s Lunch

I absolutely love this series by Publisher’s Lunch. The latest collection of 2018 Fall/Winter Buzz Books is *LIT*! The excerpts are served in generous portions. They are larger than appetizer size, and more like a small plate size that leaves you wishing that it came as an entire entree. The samples made me crave so many of the books, and I devoured them like a starving bookworm. The carefully curated selections are offerings for audiences and genres in all shapes and sizes. I am especially looking forward to The Silent Patient by Alex Michaelides, Family Trust by Kathy Wang, The 7 ½ Deaths of Evelyn Hardcastle by Stuart Turton, Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough, Lies by T.M Logan, Leave No Trace by Mindy Mejia, and Liane Moriarty’s new book. The Fall/Winter 2018 Publishing Preview list also tempts you with tantalizing titles and leaves you interested in many more upcoming books.

Social Media

Twitter and Instagram give me ideas for new books, too. I first learned about Mindy Mejia’s new book, Leave No Trace, through Chelsea Humphrey of The Suspense is Thrilling Me’s tweet.

My feed on Goodreads always inspires me to discover new reads.

How do you find new books?

  1. Although I’ve been on Goodreads for years and BookBub sends me things daily, I just recently discovered Buzz Books and I’m addicted! I love that they have different editions for genres and the included chapters do so much more than a simple summary ever could. So glad you included them in this list!

  2. My first source is trusted bloggers. I also like Buzz Books and I use Edelweiss to get a sense of what’s coming out in upcoming months. They have so many search filters you can really narrow down what you’re interested in.

      1. You’re exactly right- there’s a lot there. Mostly because it’s for book sellers and libraries. I just keep monkeying around with the filters- what subject (subsets of fiction for me, but there are so many options!), format (hardcover), and type (front list, unless I’m looking for paperbacks). I keep going until l have a reasonable number of options to look at!
