Fresh on the Shelf - May 2018 Book Releases + Giveaway

Happy May, Cupcakes!🌻

Spring is finally here and I couldn't be happier!

No more surprise snow storms, cold and windy days, or gloomy weather. I'm so eager to finally be able to read outside in the sun, and to finally enjoy this year's most anticipated YA reads!

A Court of Frost and Starlight is officially out today, and I'm super excited to dive into my personal copy. Anyone else a big fan of Sarah J. Maas? I'm also anticipating War Storm, Furyborn, Legendary, Puddin', and Royals. I can't wait to share my reviews in the next few weeks and look forward to seeing your thoughts, too!

What are your most anticipated May 2018 book releases? Be sure to let me know!

Also, if you missed out on my recap post, last month I had the pleasure of attending Frenzy Presents - the Spring 2018 edition. Our hosts, HarperCollins Canada's HCCFrenzy team, did a phenomenal job with the event and showcased plenty of exciting new releases. Be sure to click here to check out the recap if you missed out!
