Can you believe it’s already May? It seems crazy to me! But it’s definitely a month people have been waiting for! There are some books that people have been anxiously awaiting (BITTERBLUE and INSURGENT and A HERO FOR WONDLA, anyone?), and debut author releases that sound incredible (I, for one, am really interested in ENCHANTED).
It seems like only yesterday that I was agonizing over the long wait till May (I really, really wanted BITTERBLUE). And while I know you all probably have massive to-read piles, I’m sure you’ll end up adding more to the list. Just be thankful I didn’t decide to go through ALL the May YA/MG releases – just ones I’m particularly excited about!
