New Releases: May 2018

So, May has some promising releases, include one where I hopefully get to meet the author.

I’m excited to have another fantasy smut novel to read. I like this series a lot more than the Throne of Glass.
Release Date: May 1
 Royals 2. Royals by Rachel Hawkins
I met Rachel back in 2011 or so at a Writer’s Conference. She’s from my hometown and lives in my college town. I’ve been a fan of hers from the beginning, and she is doing a book signing at my local Barnes and Noble. I hope I am able to go!
Release Date: May 1
Not That Bad: Dispatches from Rape Culture 3. Not That Bad edited by Roxane Gay
 It’s Roxane Gay. We all have writers that we will read anything by, without even looking at the topic, and she is one of mine. This book is about rape culture, something she has spoken widely on in the past. It will be interesting to read her edited collection on the topic.
Release Date: May 1
4. Calypso by David Sedaris
I generally listen to David Sedaris’s audio book versions of his works because it adds to the hilarity of the work. The summary promises a different type of book than usual, so I’m excited to see how this one compares to the others, especially Me Talk Pretty One Day.
Release: May 29

YA Books I’m looking forward to in 2015…

I have been waiting for so long for these books. I feel like Sirius Black, when put face to face with Peter Pettigrew. You know, the “I did my waiting! Twelve years! Twelve years I waited in Azkaban!” Yeah, that’s me. Anywho, these are YA series books that I am eagerly awaiting:

The Shadow Cabinet by Maureen Johnson

Half Wild by Sally Green

(I have been waiting for this book forever)

Lair of Dreams by Libba Bray

Miss Mayhem by Rachel Hawkins

(Can anyone confirm if that is Joel McHale on the cover? His little brother? Dude looks just like him)

Stand Off by Andrew Smith

There may be some I’m missing, so if I come across any, I’ll add them. It’s hard to keep up with new books when like every book I read is part of a series. What book(s) are you looking forward to reading this year?
