Hype It Up: Book Releases in May 2016

April was a month full of new releases that had us racing to the bookstores (see 6 April 2016 Releases You May Have Missed), but rest assured as May is no different! With the opening of the new month, here are a few brand-new YA books that you should start getting hyped for.

A Court of Mist and Fury by Sarah J.  Maas


For lovers of A Court of Thorns and Roses, the second book of this trilogy is finally here! Get ready to jump back into Maas’s fantastical world of Fae and fairytale retellings as Feyre struggles to recover from the brutality she had to face and commit as the price for her “happily ever after.” In this rendition of Hades and Persephone, we’re promised a deeper look into the Night Court and, of course, our favorite High Lord of the Night Court.
