Originally I thought that May was going to be a busy month for book releases, however two of my most highly anticipated releases, The Rose and The Dagger and The Star-Touched Queen actually came out last month instead! There are still a few books I am looking forward to in May though, so here we go:
A Court of Mist and Fury (ACOTAR #2) by Sarah J. Maas
Released: 3rd May 2016
If you haven't already worked this out, I am a Sarah J. Maas fan and I love all her books. So really, this is a no brainer I can't wait to read about the aftermath of the first book.
I have to say that unfortunately, I love the cover of the right which I think is the hardback cover. I think it better depicts what is in the title, so the thorns worked for the first book (A Court of Thorns and Roses) but the mist works with this one, I don't understand why they have kept the thorns with this book cover.
Ruined (#1) by Amy Tintera
Release Date (Kindle in the UK and Hardback in US): 3rd May 2016
I haven't heard that much about this book but it's about a girl who is out to get revenge and has this elaborate plan which involves infiltrate the royal family.
Love, Lies and Spies by Cindy Anstey
This book is set in the nineteenth century and looks like it could be a romance between a woman determined not to make any attachments with anyone and a man who is a spy for the War Office. Sound like it would be a fun read.
(Book already out in US Paperback and UK Kindle)
The Crown's Game by Evelyn Skye
Release Date (Kindle and Paperback in UK and Hardcover in US) : 17th May 2016
I have been waiting for this book ever since the cover release. There has been quite a lot of love for this book for bloggers who got ARC's of this book which makes me excited. It has also been blurbed by Sabaa Tahir, New York Times bestselling author of An Ember in the Ashes and Sara Raasch, New York Times bestselling author of the Snow Like Ashes series.
This book had me when I read it was 'is a thrilling and atmospheric historical fantasy set in Imperial Russia about two teenagers who must compete for the right to become the Imperial Enchanter—or die in the process.' Doesn't that sound amazing?
Slave, Warrior, Queen (Of Crowns and Glory #1) by Morgan Rice
Release Date: 30th May 2016
I happen upon this book while browsing though amazon one night and I have to say that it was the title which drew me to this book. It follows a poor girl who has secretly learnt to use weapons and a Prince who despises what his family stand for, check out the synopsis for full insight into what I likely to happen in this book but, it looks like it is going to be a action-packed read.
(as far as I can tell it is currently on available as an e-book)
