Some good ones coming up in May, although several here I'm really not sure are my thing.
Books I'm definitely planning to get
Once Upon a Marquess, by Courtney Milan (May 2015)
There's never a firm release date with Milan's books, but according to her website this will be out in April or May, so here's hoping it's early in the month. It sounds great, but Milan is an autobuy author, so I'd buy it whatever it was about.
A God in Ruins by Kate Atkinson (May 5)
This is a companion to Life After Life, which I loved.
Day Four, by Sarah Lotz (May 21)
I recently read Lotz's The Three and thoroughly enjoyed it. This seems to be along the same lines, so I'll be reading it.
Books that interest me and I'll keep an eye on
Sacrati by Kate Sherwood (May 4)
I'm not sure about this one at all. I love Sherwood's contemporaries because they're so grounded and real. This is fantastical and features slaves and possibly (from what I can glean from the blurb) a 'gay-four-you' plot. Not my sort of thing, but I might try this anyway.
Archivist Wasp by Nicole Kornher-Stace (May 5)
I added this one to my wish list a while ago based on someone's comments about it. I remember that much, but I can't remember exactly what this person said! It does sound quite interesting and different!
A Year of Living Danishly: My Twelve Months Unearthing the Secrets of the World's Happiest Country by Helen Russell (May 12)
I have a bit of an obsession with Scandinavia, so I might give this a try.
The Shore by Sara Taylor (May 26)
Not sure, sounds like a bit too much misery for my taste, but the blurb includes the line "Through a series of interconnecting narratives that recalls the work of David Mitchell and Jennifer Egan..." which does tempt me!
Sweet Agony, by Charlotte Stein (May 28)
I haven't liked all of Stein's books, but I keep picking up her new ones!
