So, May was a big buying month for me, I'm not going to lie. I bought a total of 8 books. Out of that, three of them were new releases that I had been anticipating for a long time, and had actually preordered. I'm not a person that buys books every month though, so I'm trying not to feel bad about the amount of money I spent in one hit. I probably won't get any more books until late in the year. Or if I decide to preorder Six of Crows... hmmm. Anyway, here are some pictures, and I'll talk a little about the books below.

I've read this book multiple times, but I've never actually owned it. This month, I was dying to read it and the cover that I like was cheap on Book Depository, so I just decided to buy it! And yes, I did read it this month too. I love it so very much.
2. End of Days by Susan Ee
This book finally came out! You all know that I love the Angelfall books, and End of Days, the final book in the trilogy, was no exception. I was super lucky in that the book actually arrived at my house before it was supposed to be released which was an awesome surprise, and it enabled me to be able to read it before the release date too!
3&4. Cruel Beauty and Crimson Bound by Rosamund Hodge
I read and loved Cruel Beauty last year, and Crimson Bound came out this month. I haven't read it yet, but it's definitely happening next month.
|these books are more beautiful than you can imagine|
I've finished this book now, and I have got to say, it was amazing! It took me a little while to get into, and to be honest, I wasn't really feeling the chemistry between the two love interests to start with, but then...Wow. After the first 100 pages, I was hooked. Also, the last 100 pages had a huge impact on me. I wasn't expecting this novel to go the way it did.
I wasn't planning on ever buying these two, but when I saw them for a good price, and realised that my library was never going to get a hard copy of The Winner's Crime, I couldn't pass them up. I enjoyed The Winner's Curse when I read it last year (here's my review, if you're interested), so I'm excited to finally have an ideal way to read The Winner's Crime.
8. Intertwined by Gena Showalter
I didn't actually buy this book this month, but I figured I'd include it anyway. I never really planned to read this book, but I saw it cheap at a second hand book stall, so I picked it up and now I'm going to read it soon because I was intrigued by the blurb.
These are the books I picked up in May! Did you buy/receive any books this month?
