Today I wanted to share with you a few books that are coming out in May that I’m really excited about. The list may be small, but to compensate, the four authors are amazing! Here’s the list:
- Sunkissed by Kasie West
I have read every single published Kasie West book, and Sunkissed will not be an exception! I know this is going to be a nice fluffy YA romance book, and I’m here for it! I just know this will be a good one, and I’m not going to wait until the physical book is out… I’m reading this ASAP as an ebook when it comes out! Here’s the sinopsis:
“After being betrayed by her best friend, Avery is hoping for a picture-perfect summer. Too bad her parents have dragged her and her sister to a remote family camp for the entire summer. And that’s not even the worst part. Avery also has to deal with no internet, a cute but off-limits staff member, and an always-in-her-face sister.
But what starts as a disaster turns into a whirlwind summer romance as Avery embarks on an unexpected journey to figure out what she truly wants and who she wants to be.”
- Blade of Secrets (Bladesmith #1) by Tricia Levenseller
Tricia Levenseller writes amazing books! I still haven’t read Warrior of the Wild, but I fell in love with The Daughter of the Pirate King duology and The Shadows Between Us! Her books are so good and I expect nothing less from this new series. Here’s the sinopsis:
“Eighteen-year-old Ziva prefers metal to people. She spends her days tucked away in her forge, safe from society and the anxiety it causes her, using her magical gift to craft unique weapons imbued with power.
Then Ziva receives a commission from a powerful warlord, and the result is a sword capable of stealing its victims’ secrets. A sword that can cut far deeper than the length of its blade. A sword with the strength to topple kingdoms. When Ziva learns of the warlord’s intentions to use the weapon to enslave all the world under her rule, she takes her sister and flees.
Joined by a distractingly handsome mercenary and a young scholar with extensive knowledge of the world’s known magics, Ziva and her sister set out on a quest to keep the sword safe until they can find a worthy wielder or a way to destroy it entirely.“
- Realm Breaker (Realm Breaker #1) by Victoria Aveyard
Me and Victoria Aveyard have a complicated relationship, but I have to say I’m very excited for her new series. I really want to give her work another try, so I’ll be definitely reading this one in the future! Here’s the sinopsis:
“A strange darkness grows in Allward.
Even Corayne an-Amarat can feel it, tucked away in her small town at the edge of the sea.
She soon discovers the truth: She is the last of an ancient lineage—and the last hope to save the world from destruction. But she won’t be alone. Even as darkness falls, she is joined by a band of unlikely companions:
A squire, forced to choose between home and honor.
An immortal, avenging a broken promise.
An assassin, exiled and bloodthirsty.
An ancient sorceress, whose riddles hide an eerie foresight.
A forger with a secret past.
A bounty hunter with a score to settle.
Together they stand against a vicious opponent, invincible and determined to burn all kingdoms to ash, and an army unlike anything the realm has ever witnessed.”
- People We Meet on Vacation by Emily Henry
I admit I haven’t read Beach Read yet, but I already have my copy waiting for me! From what I’ve heard from other readers, it was a really good book and perfect to read in the summer. I honestly expect this one to be at the same level, but we’ll see! I’m planning of reading both this summer. Here’s the sinopsis:
“Poppy and Alex. Alex and Poppy. They have nothing in common. She’s a wild child; he wears khakis. She has insatiable wanderlust; he prefers to stay home with a book. And somehow, ever since a fateful car share home from college many years ago, they are the very best of friends. For most of the year they live far apart–she’s in New York City, and he’s in their small hometown–but every summer, for a decade, they have taken one glorious week of vacation together.
Until two years ago, when they ruined everything. They haven’t spoken since.
Poppy has everything she should want, but she’s stuck in a rut. When someone asks when she was last truly happy, she knows, without a doubt, it was on that ill-fated, final trip with Alex. And so, she decides to convince her best friend to take one more vacation together–lay everything on the table, make it all right. Miraculously, he agrees.
Now she has a week to fix everything. If only she can get around the one big truth that has always stood quietly in the middle of their seemingly perfect relationship. What could possibly go wrong?“
Have you heard of these? Do you have any new releases on your radar? Let me know!
