Lena @ Addicted 2 Novels - So many good books being released in May. So many beach reads, so little time!

May 4, 2013 - 9:50 pm

Rachel - Sometimes I honestly wish I could pause all these new releases so I can catch up and be ready for them. I want to read almost every May release, excluding September Girls because I will never put myself through the torture that is that book. I’ve already read/own a lot of these, but I really can’t wait for Five Summers to come out. That totally looks like a me book.

candy - I never really paid much attention to mentions of The Rules for Disappearing bc for a teen mom’s perspective it sounds like a book about a teen running away,which can be a scary thought for a mom.But now that I read the Description here,I want to read it.I also love this idea of the Author being from Louisiana like me.Thanks for posting about theses books.I also want to read Golden and Parallel.

Annie - Oooh, May seems like an amazing month! I’m definitely going to grab Winger as soon as it comes out! Marked it on my calendar! 🙂

Leticia (@osoordinary) - Reboot!Reboot!Reboot! Can’t wait to read it! Also, I won an ARC of Parallel so I’m excited to read that! It’ll be my first parallel universes book and I’m newly interested, after having just completed the Fringe TV series! = )

Alexa Y. - Oh Lord, there goes all my cash! (Just kidding.) (Not really.) Seriously, there’s a ton of good stuff on here! My favorite, without a doubt, is Golden because I loved that book so.

Brittany @ The Book Addict's Guide - Holy almost-summer, Batman is right!! My wallet is soooo suffering this month, that’s for sure. I’ve already read a few but there are sooo many more I can’t wait to read! 🙂

Bookworm1858 - So many good titles-I want to read almost all of these and the only ones I’ve picked up so far are Reboot, The Rules for Disappearing, and The Book of Broken Hearts. I can’t wait to get these other ones!

Hannah @ Matter Loved Dust - Some of these have different UK release dates so I picked up ‘Invisibility’ yesterday which I’m excited to start. Also really looking forward to ‘The Originals’ and ‘Winger’!

elena - this DOES seem like a bright & happy book but from your review, it is not that. misleading!! i like that there’s diversity in this book but i’m sorry it fell flat from your expectations. i hope your next read is better xo

April 18, 2013 - 12:26 pm

Alexa Y. - I read this one shortly after you did, and I too found it to be a bit lacking. While there were certain interesting elements (the surfing! the immigration thing!), the other stuff fell flat for me. Plus, it felt like too much was going on. (But I would still read a book from Ford’s perspective, lol!)

April 18, 2013 - 11:20 am

Rachel - I was wondering about this one. I’m sad you didn’t like it because it sounds like something I’d like, but I know our contemporary tastes are nearly identical so I trust you on this one. That’s so strange how the one storyline just…disappears. I mean, that doesn’t make much sense to me at all.

Christina (A Reader of Fictions) - It’s really weird that this starts out with two strong perspectives and drops one. Especially if that one was more interesting. Unless one of the people died, there’s no reason to cut off their narrative. That makes no sense at all!

April 17, 2013 - 5:07 pm

Tara - Based on the cover alone, I would think this was a light and fun summer read. Obviously it’s much heavier than that, and I appreciate your honesty with the second half of the book. If you say skip it, consider it skipped in my book 🙂
