NEW RELEASES - MAY 3

Hello everyone!

Apparently today is the day that every publisher decided to publish eight thousand books. Okay, that is a bit of an exaggeration, but instead of the usual 8-9 new releases and me picking 5-6 to feature, there is 30 and I have to pare that down so this post doesn't give you a hand cramp scrolling though.

SO in an effort to save both your time and mine, I am picking (my) top 6 books to feature with the synopsis and my thoughts, like usual, and the rest I will list at the bottom, with a link to the Goodreads page, so you can still check them out!

The Outliers by Kimberly McCreight 

Lately, I've been loving the mystery/thriller books, and I have high hopes for this one! This is the first in a series of three books, and it sounds like what I wanted The Last Place on Earth to be about! One friend who leaves cryptic messages and needs help from their friend (not a DOOMSDAY NOVEL - no, I'm not still bitter about The Last Place on Earth AT ALL).

A Totally Awkward Love Story by Tom Ellen and Lucy Ivison

I've seen this book floating around on Instagram and it looks hilarious! It sounds right up my alley, and the perfect summery read to break up some of the more serious books I've been reading!

Invisible Fault Lines by Kristen-Paige Madonia

Okay, I'll be the first to admit that some of my love for this book is related directly to the cover. I just really love it. But, the story DOES sound good as well! Again, I'm loving the mysteries so I'm hoping to enjoy this one!

Queen of Hearts by Colleen Oakes

This may or may not be another cover love book, BUT the story itself also sounds really good. I don't LOVE the original Alice in Wonderland, it's good but not my favourite story. Nevertheless, this retelling looks good, despite the mixed reviews it has on Goodreads.

Shuffle, Repeat by Jen Klein

I've had my eye on this book for a while, it sounds like a cute, summer read, with a mini road trip everyday - BRING ON THE ROAD TRIP NOVELS! Ahem. It looks cute, a little bit cheesy and all kinds of wonderful!

Ahh! I've also had my eye on this book and I. CANNOT. WAIT. I haven't even read the book and I'm already intrigued, trying to figure out who the killer is! Definitely picking this one up!!
