I loved writing my Go Buy A Book: April Edition because I actually bought/read all of the books I wrote about. I didn’t just talk about wanting to read them, I actually did. I don’t know if that will happen again because I’m getting ready to start writing my new book that I’ve been outlining, but it’s still fun to want to read all the books.
I pulled four YA books of different sub-genre each in hopes that one will grab your attention.
Release Date: May 3rd
I love Sarah J Maas. Her other series, Throne of Glass, is one of the few fantasy books that I find myself drawn to. She is an amazing story-teller and her protagonists are awesome. In book one, A Court of Thorns and Roses, we are introduced to a fantastical world of faeries, creatures, magic, and an ordinary human girl who holds her own.
I’m so excited to read the sequel! There are perks to pre-ordering and ordering from different websites. Go to her website before you buy the book.
Summer Days and Summer Nights: Twelve Love Stories
Edited by Stephanie Perkins
Release date: May 17th
First, buy it because of the awesome title. Second, buy it because of the adorable cover. Third, and possibly the most important, buy it because 12 love stories and 12 amazing authors. I’ve read Stephanie Perkins, Leigh Bardugo, Cassandra Clare, Veronica Roth, Jennifer E. Smith, and I have books written by the others on my TBR list.
Oh, and love stories.
Release date: May 24th
The description of this book sounds so intriguing. Historical fiction set in 1906 San Fransisco. Right there you know this will not be a typical book. The main character, Mercy Wong, wants to get away from the poverty of Chinatown, and sets out to do just that using cunning and bribery. But when the earthquake hits, her world is turned upside down.
Do I want to read this? I think yes!
Release date: May 10th
Gossip Girl mixed with Pretty Little Liars. Attention piqued. “Unrivaled is #1 New York Times bestselling author Alyson Noël’s first book in a thrilling suspense trilogy about how our most desperate dreams can become our darkest nightmares.”
Ok, to be honest, this book sounds like it could be very interesting. BUT, I’m not usually one to read books about things that can become my darkest nightmares. I tend to stick to contemporary happily ever afters. But the cover is too pretty, and the description almost tempting enough to get me to read it. I might. Who knows. But you should 🙂
Look forward to my post next Monday about my most anticipated YA Contemporary books releasing in May.
Which books are you most looking forward to reading this May?
