Most Anticipated - May Edition

Bah! It's only the first week of May and I'm falling behind on posts and reading.  Already this month I've had to make a hard call on not finishing a book. I hate doing that, especaily when I've been excited for the book.  Anyway, more on that in another post.  Only a week behind, but these are my Most Anticipated releases for this month!

 

Release: May 3

Author: Todd Lockwood

Genre: Fantasy

Series: The Evertide #1

Shelf: Library

 

Maia and her family raise dragons for the political war machine. As she comes of age, she anticipates a dragon of her own to add to the stable of breeding parents. Her peaceful life is shattered when the Summer Dragon—one of the rare and mythical High Dragons—makes an appearance in her quiet valley. Political factions vie for control of the implied message, threatening her aspirations, her aerie, her entire way of life.

 

Release: May 3

Author: Sarah Jude

Genre: Young Adult

Series: Stand Alone

Shelf: Library

 

Stay on the roads. Don’t enter the woods. Never go out at night.

 

Release: May 10

Author: Taran Matharu

Genre: Fantasy & Young Adult

Series: Summoner #2

Shelf: Library

 

More demons, epic battles, and fights to the death: introducing the unmissable next installment in the Summoner Trilogy...

 

Release: May 17

Author: Joe Hill

Genre: Horror

Series: Stand Alone

Shelf: Library

 

The fireman is coming. Stay cool.

 

That's everything!  Four books this month have caught my eye, and already been added to my Holds list.  This month I've added something different.  Each book cover goes back to their Goodreads page so everyone can check out large synopses and any early reviews.   

 

What about everyone else?  Anything else coming out in May I should keep my eye on?

How did I miss this?!

Where have I been?!  Under a rock?!  I cannot believe I managed to miss the fact that we are getting another Lady Trent book.  For some strange reason I swore that the Voyage of the Basilisk  was the last installment to the Lady Trent Series.  Which was in fact why I have put off reading the darn thing over the last year.  I wasn't ready to say good-bye to one of my favorite female characters, no matter how flawed she was.  The book as been sitting on my self mocking me for almost a year because I was a single book away from finishing the series.  Then I'm browsing through Goodreads' giveaway section and BOOM!  Look book number four!

 

Needless to say I have entered to win the book, marked my calendar for April 5th, and I am ready to pre-order my copy through the bookstore.  This also means that I have pulled the third book off my shelf and added it to my TBR pile once again.  However, I haven't heard whether this will be the final installment of the book or not. Despite some opinions I've read I do really enjoy this series, and the author herself.  I had the great pleasure of getting to meet Marie Brennan last year and the illustrated for her books.  

 

If you haven't seen the covers, or drawings inside these books you are missing out on something.  I thought the Voyage of the Basilisk was the best cover to date, but Todd Lockwood has out down himself again.  The cover for In the Labyrinth of Drakes is beautiful.

 

 

I thought the only book I was looking forward to this year was Morning Star, but I was mistaken.  There might have been some squealing when I saw this, maybe some dancing, and an immediate text to a friend of mine who also adores this series.  So if you haven't checked out the first book, A Natural History of Dragons, you should!  The books has Victorian ladies stepping out of their deemed societal role, dragons, exotic locations, dragons, and people get eaten.  Plus the drawings inside the book are breath taking.
