With Bated Breath: May New Releases

There are TONS of books releasing this month, but I’m going to highlight a few that I’m personally most excited for.  You won’t see certain sequels here, because if I haven’t read the first, I’m not ready to be excited about the second!  There really don’t seem to be as many trailers this month, but both Code Name Verity’s and Struck’s are awesome.

What releases are you most looking forward to this month? Bonus points for anything other than Insurgent! Though of course, it’s okay to be pumped for it as well, I’m personally just sick of the hype.


  1. I am really looking forward to 'A Hero's Guide to Saving You Kingdom'- looks really fun and magical! x

    1. I finished it already and LOVED it! It's one of the best MG books I've read all year. I'll be posting my review for it on Friday. First I have to get my words out!

  2. Code Name Verity is simply amazing, I can't rate it any higher. One of my all time favourites! On the other hand, When You Were Mine is on my DNF shelf...

    1. Haha, I actually had zero interest in When You Were Mine, but then I read a few very positive reviews that piqued my interest. I want to give it a shot. I completely agree with you on Code Name Verity though! It's wonderful.

  3. I really want to read In Honor, too. I haven't heard of that Being Friends with Boys book, but I like the title and the cover.

    1. I've heard really good things about both! I'm personally more excited about Being Friends With's one of the contemp reads for 2012 that I've been most excited for!

  4. I've read a lot of good reviews of A Hero's Guide to Saving Your Kingdom lately, and I think it's going to be really fun and cute! I'm definitely planning on reading Being Friends with Boys and Wentworth Hall. The title is what drew me to the first one and the comparisons to Downton Abbey got me interested in the latter.

    1. I know, I feel like Wentworth Hall is going to get a LOT of reads because of Downton Abbey. What fortuitous timing for them! Hero's Guide is totally cute and fun, I loved it, and really want to pick up a hard copy so I can read it again.

  5. I'm so glad you posted the Struck trailer because I wouldn't have seen it otherwise and it's fantastic. Just from your list, I'd have to go with When You Were Mine for what I'm most looking forward to. It's basically impossible to choose, though :P


Share your thoughts, I love to hear them!
