Early Excitement: May 2015 (THE MONTH WHEN ALL THE BOOKS COME OUT!)

Early Excitement

ALL THE BOOKS are being released this May. Well, at least all of the ones that I’m OVER THE MOON WITH EXCITEMENT about. Seriously, though. ALL THE BOOKS.

May 5th

A Court of Thorns and Roses by Sarah J. Maas | The Heir by Kiera Cass | The Fill-In Boyfriend by Kasie West

These three books are enough to make me flail like the crazy fangirl that I am. I CAN’T WAIT for ACoTaR just like the rest of the world, but I’m also meeting Sarah J. Maas SOON (May 16th) so I’M FREAKING OUT. LIKE, IT’S SARAH J. MAAS PEOPLE! I’m really interested to see where Kiera Cass takes The Selection series, as originally it was supposed to be a trilogy. And Kasie West’s contemporaries are always at the top of my most anticipating when they are coming out!

May 19th & May 26th

Off the Page by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer | Illusionarium by Heather Dixon | The Cage by Megan Shepherd | P.S. I Still Love You by Jenny Han

I read Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and her daughter shortly after it came out and loved it. Ever since I’ve been waiting to hear if there was going to be a sequel or companion, and when I saw that there WAS, I was freaking out! Illusionarium and The Cage are both by authors I have read and previously adored, but they’ve been getting very mixed reviews. I’m still super excited, but I probably will wait until I read more reviews until I pick those up. THEN P.S. I STILL LOVE YOU COMES OUT PEOPLE. THIS IS NOT A DRILL. MORE PETER K!!!

Those are the books that I’m fangirling over for May 2015. What books are you impatiently waiting to get your hands on?

Top Ten 2014 Releases I Meant To Read But Didn’t Get To

This is so difficult for me to do this because there were SO MANY books that I wanted to read that were released last year and just didn’t get around to for whatever reason. But I have a feeling everyone is in the same boat as me… In no particular order, here are the books that made my list!


Princess of Thorns by Stacey Jay | The Vault of Dreamers by Caragh M. O’brien | Wings by Elizabeth Richards | Summer State of Mind by Jen Calonita | Prisoner of Night and Fog by Anne Blankman

Princess of Thorns was a case of my NetGalley requesting restraint, but it was a mistake, according to everyone that has read it. I should have gone for it! The Vault of Dreamers was getting some mixed reviews, but it sounded like my kind of book despite other reviewer’s complaints. Wings is the last book in Richards’ Black City trilogy which I LOVE — guilty pleasure sexy goodness! Summer State of Mind is the companion to Sleepaway Girls that I read a million years ago but adored for its cuteness. And Prisoner of Night and Fog just sound SO INTRIGUING. World War II fascinates me in a disturbing kind of way, and this book sounds like my kind of read.


Ignite Me by Tahereh Mafi | Her Dark Curiosity by Megan Shepherd | The Queen of the Tearling by Erika Johansen | Jackaby by William Ritter | Biggest Flirts by Jennifer Echols

Ignite Me was one of those were I told myself I absolutely HAD to read it immediately after Unravel Me, but just didn’t get around to it, unfortunately. Her Dark Curiosity, like with Ignite Me, I just didn’t get to. But I adored The Madman’s Daughter, so this one has high priority for 2015. The Queen of the Tearling was a book that I wanted to read because everyone else was reading it, and Emma Watson was already cast as the main character. I actually kept putting off buying it because man is it expensive for a book! Jackaby was one I was hearing nothing but amazing things about. Biggest Flirts is by Jennifer Echols, and her books are promised to be super cute, plus this series is pretty popular right now as the third(?) book is coming out soon.

What 2014 releases did you mean to read but didn’t get the chance?
