Notable New Releases - May 2012

There's a lot to be excited about this month!

May 1st
Destined (Wings, #4)
Destined (Wings #4) by Aprilynne Pike
Love this series with a new take on the fae.

Bitterblue (Graceling Realm, #3)
Bitterblue (Graceling #3) by Kristin Cashore
I haven't started this series, but am expecting to enjoy it.  Female warrior protagonist - which is always cool. :)

Insurgent (Divergent, #2)
Insurgent (Divergent Trilogy #2) by Veronica Roth
I haven't started this trilogy either, but have heard RAVE reviews for Divergent and am told this is even better.  There are 5 life path choices, but what if you don't feel you "fit" into just one?

Revived by Cat Patrick
Little, Brown Books
This cover looks a bit too creepy for me, but I admit I'm intrigued by the premise - the government has come up with a way to "revive" people after death and Daisy has been revived 5 times already - each time starting over with a new identity.

May 8th
Underworld (Abandon Trilogy #2)
Underworld (Abandon #2) by Meg Cabot
Scholastic Point
I love the covers for this series and the mythology base is intriguing.  I just haven't been in the mythology mood yet, but do plan to read these.  Can you believe I haven't read ANYTHING Meg Cabot yet?

The Last Princess
The Last Princess by Galaxy Craze
Little, Brown Books
Post-apocolyptic story set in Europe.

Endure (Need, #4)
Endure (Need #4) by Carrie Jones
I haven't read these books and have seen mixed reviews, but I'm still a sucker for the gold on the covers.  It convinces me that I really want to know what's inside.  :)

May 15th
Code Name Verity
Code Name Verity by Elizabeth Wein
A historical fiction in February by Egmont w/a different cover.  Maggie Stiefvater recently gushed about this book, so it is now something I definitely plan to read.  Story of two girls behind enemy lines in WWII.

May 22nd
Of Poseidon
Of Poseidon by Anna Banks
Feiwel & Friends
Another mermaid type book about a girl who can talk with fish.  I am loving this cover.

May 23rd
Closed Hearts (Mindjack Trilogy, #2)
Closed Hearts (Mindjack Trilogy #2) by Susan Kaye Quinn
Omnific Publishing
Set in a world where almost everyone can read minds and thoughts are heard by everyone around you.  Even classes are taught using thought.  Can you imagine what high school would be like?  Of course there's more to the story than that - adventure, romance, danger, concentration camps, secrets.  I loved the first in this series and have just started this one.  So excited/scared to see what happens now!  Will be hosting a tour stop on the 29th with a book giveaway - stay tuned. :)
