What I'm reading this May

A Court of Wings & Ruin

Feyre has returned to the Spring Court, determined to gather information on Tamlin's maneuverings and the invading king threatening to bring Prythian to its knees.

If you aren't excited about Sarah J Maas's third ACOTAR book, you're lying. It's okay, I won't hold it against you. This May 2nd release has me holding my breath until I'm holding it in my hands.

 

Lord of Shadows

Emma Carstairs has finally avenged her parents. She thought she’d be at peace. But she is anything but calm.

Good ole Cassie, back at it again. She sure knows how to wind a girl up. This second installment (released May 23rd -- another new release!) is sure to have me twisted in knots, just like her other 2 series!

 

Hex Hall

Three years ago, Sophie Mercer discovered that she was a witch. It's gotten her into a few scrapes.

Even though I have long (long) been out of school, when I think of May I think of getting out of school and summertime fun time. This is one of my favorite boarding school (not so much) series, and I want to give this one a reread!

 

Anne of Green Gables

Anne, an eleven-year-old orphan, is sent by mistake to live with a lonely, middle-aged brother and sister on a Prince Edward Island farm and proceeds to make an indelible impression on everyone around her.

This classic just fits the month of May (and October, obviously). But I think partially because of Mother's Day and Father's Day coming up and Anne's sweet relationship with Matthew and Marilla, this book will always have a sweet spot for me this time of the year.

 

Red Sister

At the Convent of Sweet Mercy young girls are raised to be killers. Sweet Mercy hones its novices’ skills to deadly effect: it takes ten years to educate a Red Sister in the ways of blade and fist.

Is this ringing any bells for anyone else? Sounds a little familiar... Will definitely be giving it a try just for the intrigue factor though!

 

Hunted

Beauty knows the Beast’s forest in her bones—and in her blood. Though she grew up with the city’s highest aristocrats, far from her father’s old lodge, she knows that the forest holds secrets and that her father is the only hunter who’s ever come close to discovering them. 

Omg omg omg. Where did this little beauty come from? Sign me up. Where can I get it? I don't know how I missed this, but I'm adding this to my "read right this moment" list.
