The past week’s been busier than I thought it would be, what with a trip to Penang, work, and then being hit by motion sickness. In any case, I’m back on track, and on top of this week’s YA releases. Not too many new books out, but Cassandra Clare’s always a notable author, as is James Patterson. Personally, I’m looking forward to snagging a copy of In a Perfect World by Trish Doller.

The House of New Beginnings to me, was a comforting book to read. Following the lives of three women at crossroads, this is a book that speaks about hope amidst uncertainty. Naturally, what first caught my eye in the synopsis was Rosa, the sous chef. Now, I found out she’s more of a line cook but ultimately, that deviating detail doesn’t matter all too much. She lives and breathes food and that’s where she finds solace.
Get ready to pour out your savings this month! May tends to be a very active publishing month for young adult fiction. UK YA books are unusually well-represented this week, as are mysteries and thrillers. Of course, the hype for A Court of Wings and Ruins by Sarah J. Maas is reaching its peak this week. On my end, I’ve pre-ordered Release by Patrick Ness and lined up Spellslinger by Sebastian de Castell. I’m also looking forward to Noteworthy by Riley Redgate. I really enjoyed her debut last year.
