Books I’m Looking Forward to this May | 2017


Hello folks! It’s almost May! We’re almost halfway through 2017. That is mind-boggling to me. Anyway, here is my post about all the books I’m looking forward to this upcoming May (2017)!

May 2nd

I’m super excited about Always and Forever, Lara Jean, since this book should be the last book in its trilogy — unless Han decides to move further on with the series. However, I’m looking forward to what Lara Jean’s attitude will be like, since I did not enjoy reading her bratty attitude in the first book, To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before.

I’m a huge fan of Mass’ ACOTAR trilogy. I’m probably going to have to take transit to go and buy ACOWAR in downtown Vancouver though, like I did when I bought ACOMAF. No worries though!

I’m interested in this book since the main character is going to be dealing with her mothers memory and finding out if she’s at all anything like her mom. I also remember thinking how much better this book would be if the love interest would be a young woman instead of a young man.

Cold Summer appeals to me since the first part of the books synopsis reads:

“Today, he’s a high school dropout with no future. 

Tomorrow, he’s a soldier in World War II.”

And then the rest of the synopsis goes into saying how the main character (Kale) can travel through time. If Kale can’t control his ability to time travel, he may end up dying in a different time, by a bullet that wasn’t meant for him.

I’ve heard that this book was liked by many people, so I checked out How to Make a Wish on Goodreads and it turns out that there’s a character who is romantically interested in girls! Which is awesome and amazing, and I want to read this book so badly. How to Make a Wish also explores the emotional relationship between the main character, and her mother. So this book should be pretty interesting!

The premise to Textrovert is very compelling in my opinion. First the synopsis is interesting, then cute, and then kind of — almost — mysterious. I want to know what secret Talon has been keeping! But I hope it’s not a creepy secret.

May 9th

I’ve always been interested in books that have tragic backstories. They tend to be my favourite kind of books. And I can already tell that Someone Else’s Summer definitely has that chance to be one of my favourite books. I love stories where the main character ends up going on a trip of some sort in place of someone who has died.

May 16th

I can honestly say that I’m not all excited about how the main character (Lucy) is religious. I, however, will put that aside because I truly am interested in reading The Name They Give Us. I want to know how Lucy falters with everything after finding out that her mother’s cancer has returned.

As much as I am excited for Violet Grenade (VG), I’m seriously hoping that this book will be a fantasy novel — even though it appears VG is a YA Contemporary. Otherwise, Violet Grenade will be put into bad lighting since the main character seems to have two different personalities living inside the same body and mind. There are many ways that Violet Grenade could go. I just hope they go in the right directions and end up not hurting anyone in real life.

May 23rd

I’m looking forward to reading In a Perfect World because I loved Doller’s other book. I’m looking forward to reading about how the main character, Caroline, will find her new life to be, when her mom upends them and they move to Cairo, Egypt. I’m most especially interested in “[…] when she finds instead is a culture that surprises her, a city that astounds her, and a charming, unpredictable boy who challenges everything she thought she knew about life, love, and privilege.”

May 30th

I’ve had my eye on Eliza and Her Monsters for a while now. — The story just seems so, incredibly cute, and yet, there’s a part in this synopsis, where in the book Eliza’s world just seems to fall apart. And that is where my interest comes in to play. I’m wondering how Eliza will react to everything and everyone when they find out who Eliza really is.

I’ve seen this book around and people have loved it. If they haven’t loved it, then they’ve really enjoyed the book — basically all I’ve heard about this book is that people seem to be really enjoying it. Therefore, I want to enjoy it as well. When Dimple Met Rishi is definitely going on my TBR!

I just found this book on the web the other day, and let me tell you that I haven’t been this excited (Jenny Han’s novels aside) in a long, long time. The synopsis for When It’s Real gave me a inkling that this book is actually leaning towards a more…new adult novel, yet it’s still a YA story. And that, my friend, is what I am looking for in books these days.

Other notable books are:

Are there any books that are being published in May that you’re interested in? I’d love to hear about them.

Happy Reading!
