Exciting new May book releases

These are some of the new books coming out this month that I am most excited to read...

Most Hotly Anticipated

If You Need Me by Emily Murdoch
Why I'm looking forward to reading it:

I love the sound of this book- a contemporary mystery story about two young girls living in the woods in the middle of nowhere. It was already published in the US and other parts of the world (with a completely different cover) last month, and it is getting fantastic reviews. 

Also released this month 
(please note these are the UK covers and release dates)

  • Icons by Margaret Stohl
  • If I Should Die by Amy Plum (Revenants, book 3)
  • The Originals by Cat Patrick

  • The Drowning by Rachel Ward
  • The Eternity Cure by Julie Kagawa (Blood of Eden, book 2). I have already read this and love it. Review to come soon. 
  • Fall of Night by Rachel Caine (Morganville Vampires, book 14)

  • Invisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan. I'm really looking forward to reading this new paranormal book by two of my favourite authors. 
  • Isla and the Happily Ever After by Stephanie Perkins (Anna and the French Kiss, book 3)
  • Of Triton by Anna Banks (Of Poseidon, book 2)
  • The Girl with the Iron Touch by Kady Cross (Steampunk Chronicles, book 3). I have read this already and loved it My Review Here
  • Half Lives by Sara Grant
  • Quicksilver by R.J Anderson (Ultraviolet, book 2). I have read this already and loved it My Review Here
  • Reboot by Amy Tintera
  • The Seven Year King by Kiki Hamilton (The Faerie Ring, book 3)
  • Shades of Earth by Beth Revis (Across The Universe, book 3). I so badly need to read this book! It was released in the US back in January, and is finally available here. 
  • The Summer I Became a Nerd by Leah Rae Miller
  • Transparent by Natalie Whipple. Eurgh- I hate the cover on this, the US version is so much prettier.
  • Zenn Scarlett by Christian Schoon

  • Sweet Peril by Wendy Higgins (Sweet Evil, book 2)
  • Under the Light by Laura Whitcomb (Light, book 2). I'm so, so excited to my hands on a copy of this- I love the first book- A Certain Slant of Light

Any of these that you're also excited to read? Any books that I've missed off this list that you are looking forward to this May?


  1. The Summer I Became a Nerd is a book I'm really looking forward to! I'm really looking forward to reading If You Find Me I hope to get to it this month.

  2. There are a couple there I've been able to read already that I really enjoyed - The Eternity Cure and Zenn Scarlett so some good books ahead this month!

  3. I read If You Find Me and it was a fantastic book. I hope you can picture the woods described. It's a really incredible story. They mystery unfolds through flashbacks real slowly. But not too slowly. I hope you love it!
