May Book Releases

Hello, friends!

I am sharing my list of May book releases that I’m looking forward to. Sometimes I get lucky and they show up on a Kindle daily deal after awhile. Fingers crossed!

Using Kirkus Reviews

Kirkus Reviews is one of my favorite places to go for book reviews, You can read about the history of Kirkus Reviews here. I also go into more detail about why I love them and an overview of the Kirkus website in this post. For this post I am going to include the book cover, general information and the summary sentence from the Kirkus book review. I will link to the review page for the full review. This is not an exhaustive list and it will only include books that I am personally interested in.
