May 2019 Book Releases I’m Excited About!

May is here as well as this month’s edition of Books Releasing This Month That I’m Excited About but Probably Won’t Read Anytime Soon.

Without wasting any breath on the inanities (since I’ve already explained in last month’s blog post), let’s just dive into this month’s releases – all of those amazing-looking books that I’ll most probably or definitely miss out on. 😛

Do peek into this list and see if there are any books that interest you. 🙂

#1 – With the Fire on High by Elizabeth Acevedo

1I am a HUGE Elizabeth Acevedo fan and this happened after I listened to the audiobook for her fantastic debut novel, The Poet X last year. And when I found out her second novel is coming out, I simply couldn’t breathe – I was and am that excited! And With the Fire on High is now available on the audiobook app, Storytel, so guess who’s going and listening to it soon? 😉

Publisher: Harper Teen

Release Date: 7 May, 2019

#2 – Again, But Better by Christine Riccio

2Christine, over at polandbananasbooks was one of the first BookTubers I subscribed to and enjoyed watching. And to see that her debut novel is now available makes me so happy for her! This book is the story of ‘courage and determination’, as the blurb promises, and I can’t even! So excited!

Publisher: Wednesday Books

Release Date: 7 May, 2019

#3 – The Flatshare by Beth O’Leary

3Honestly, the only reason this book is on this list is because I’ve been seeing this book everywhere! Bookstagram seems obsessed with it and though it hasn’t taken over BookTube yet, it feels like that day isn’t far off. So yeah, while I battle the FOMO that this book is evoking in me, I just hope I get to read this book. Soon.

Publisher: Flatiron Books

Release Date: 28 May, 2019

#4 – The Farm by Joanne Ramos

4With an intriguing cover and a story that is sure to push you into the depths of suspense, The Farm is a book that is making me want to go and get it ASAP! But things don’t work like that and if life hadn’t been the teeny bit complicated it is right now, I would have ordered it right away!

Publisher: Random House

Release Date: 7 May, 2019

#5 – Everything is F*cked: A Book About Hope by Mark Manson

5Mark Manson’s The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck still sits unread on my bookshelf. But does that stop me from adding it to my wishlist and hoping to read his next book when it comes out? Nope. I love how the titles are quirky and really don’t give a flying f*ck, but maybe the biggest reason why I haven’t read it yet is because maybe I’ll be disappointed. Not reassuring, is it? Damn.

Publisher: Harper Collins

Release Date: 14 May, 2019

#6 – The Porpoise by Mark Haddon

6I’d read Mark Haddon’s The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Night-Time and enjoyed it immensely last year. And to see that he has a release lined up this month is something I simply cannot explain except by saying that I’m incredibly excited about it.

Publisher: Chatto & Windus

Release Date: 21 May, 2019

#7 – How It Feels to Float by Helena Fox

7The first thing I said when I read the blurb of this book was “wow!” I was and still am very impressed with the way the title refers to the story. I know that’s a rather stupid way of saying something about it, but I feel like how I see it and how others see it might differ in some ways. Which is why I’d prefer for you to go ahead read the gist. Trust me, it’s very, very intriguing!

Publisher: Dial Books

Release Date: 7 May, 2019

#8 – The Bride Test by Helen Hoang

8I’m reading Helen Hoang’s The Kiss Quotient for the Asian Readathon this month and I’m really excited about it. I have a good feeling about TKQ, so the author’s next release, The Bride Test, also automatically goes onto the pile of books that I am extremely excited about. Let’s see how it goes!

Publisher: Corvus

Release Date: 7 May, 2019

#9 – The Unhoneymooners by Christina Lauren

9With an interesting plot involving a sister, an enemy, a wedding, and a honeymoon, this book promises to be a wild fun ride that will entertain me – something that I really need right now. And with a title like that, I bet I’m not the only one who’s looking forward to reading this book!

Publisher: Gallery Books

Release Date: 14 May, 2019

#10 – Romanov by Nadine Brandes

10A historical fantasy novel with a female protagonist that sounds wonderfully badass, Romanov seems like the kind of book that will take me on a journey that I will enjoy. Plus, look at that cover! It gives me The Binding kind of vibes. I know, I know, it isn’t that, but I’m going to judge a book by its cover and hope that Romanov is as beautiful as its cover.

Publisher: Thomas Nelson

Release Date: 30 May, 2019
