Happy May Day! I hope everyone’s ready for the absolutely ridiculous amount of stunning new releases scheduled for this month–I’ve over 50 here alone! I want to hold off on The 5th Wave till the series is out, but with trailers that good, it’s going to be hard! The trailer for Icons is also good, but has me thinking…it could almost be a trailer for And All the Stars and that concerns me (there’s no way it’ll be as good). Additionally, the trailer for School for Good and Evil is adorably epic, and I’m fascinated by the art in The Ressurectionist. I enjoyed the Five Summers trailer as well! As someone who made some of her best friends at camp growing up, this book appeals to me as a summer read.
Invisibility by Andrea Cremer and David Levithan
Nothing but Blue by Lisa Jahn-Clough
Criminal by Terra Elan McVoy — I’ve already read this one and really enjoyed! It’s much darker than McVoy’s previous work, and she does a great job of putting readers into the place of an unsympathetic character and making us feel for her.
The End Games by T. Michael Martin
Nothing Can Possibly Go Wrong by Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks — I’ve already read this one as well, it was so much fun! I’ll be having Prudence Shen and Faith Erin Hicks stop by later this month for a Q&A.
The Lucy Variations by Sara Zarr
The Originals by Cat Patrick
Icons by Margaret Stohl
Two Rapunzel retellings on the same day? Woohoo! Though personally I have much higher hopes for Sold for Endless Rue.
Yep…that’s two YA books this month about invisibility as well.
Death, Dickinson, and the Demented Life of Frenchie Garcia by Jenny Torres Sanchez
Handbook for Dragon Slayers by Merrie Haskell
Fearsome Journeys: The New Solaris Book of Fantasy ed by Jhonathan Strahan
Unfettered ed by Shawn Speakman
