Books of the Month: May

Our Books of the Month features two books that we selected as our favorites: one debut and one non-debut. Throughout the month, we will try to have special features on those books, reviews, giveaways, and more while helping to promote them.

I know it's a little bit late to be posting this but I wanted to go ahead and write up a post about our two books of the month for May. For our Book of the Month, I chose what may be an obvious one. And for my Debut of the Month, I chose one possibly lesser known but still a great contemporary I think you'll love.

Our Book of the Month is City of Lost Souls by Cassandra Clare. This is the fifth book in the Mortal Instruments series and possibly my most anticipated book of the year. I've been waiting since April of last year when I tore through City of Fallen Angels just to be tormented by the ending..but now it's released and finally everyone can read it.

Our Debut of the Month is When You Were Mine by Rebecca Serle. It's a lesser known contemporary debut and I honestly hadn't heard much about it until recently. But it's an honest and heartbreaking modern recounting of Romeo and Juliet from another's point of view. I think it's one you'll easily love.

And with that, you now know our Books of the Month! We hope you pick up one or both of these books off our recommendation. Feel free to come back and comment on this post if you decided to pick it up and read it and let us know what you thought!

  1. I still need to read The Mortal Instruments, but of course I've heard great things about it! And I'm actually reading When You Were Mine now, and so far so good. Great picks!
