Book Stalking 101 (5)

Back again this month with the wonderful releases for May! Don't forget to get your mom, or a mom you admire, or someone you look to as a mom a present for Mother's day. (It'd be a day late, but it's the thought that counts right?) Without further ado, here are the books you came to see!

I'm Not Her by Janet Gurtler Released May 5th 2011
Why Stalk: I have a sister and I know that I would be devastated if she were diagnosed with cancer. I look forward to reading it to see how Tess deals with this really hard time in her life. Plus, the cover is very sweet and innocent.

Divergent by Veronica Roth Released May 3th 2011
Why stalk: Everyone and their dog is in love with this book. I am in love with this book even though I haven't read it yet.Why haven't I read this yet? And look at that amazing ball of flame for a cover people, it is worlds of awesome.

Why Stalk: This is next Sookie Stackhouse book. There, it just sold 5 bazillion copies on that sentence alone. This is an amazing series.

Moonglass by Jessi Kirby Released May 5th 2011
Why Stalk: I love this cover. I love this title. I want it. So far people have said good things about it and the story looks emotional but sweet. Plus, Sarah Dessen likes it which is all the convincing I need to get it.

Corsets and Clockwork: 13 Tales of Steampunk Romances Edited by Trisha Telep Release Date: May 10th 2011
 Why Stalk: Some of my favorite YA authors (Kiersten White, Caitlin Kittredge, Maria V. Snyder and Tessa Graton) all writing steampunk romances in this beautifully covered book with the amazing title? Excuse me as I drool all over this post.

Ruby Red by Kiersen Gier Release Date: May 10th 2011
Why Stalk: I think this is an exceedingly beautiful cover. It's just so pretty and totally decadent. I'm not sure if the story is really my style, but it's got to be good if it's an International Bestseller.

The Sweetest Thing by Christina Mandelski Release Date: May 12th 2011
Why Stalk: It's super girly, there is cake and the cover has sprinkles on it. It is like they are daring me to find the will refuse this book. But I can't, it just looks so cute!

Dreamland Social Club by Tara Altebrando Release Date: May 12th 2011
Why Stalk: Seriously, who hasn't wanted to meet a mermaid, visit Coney Island or fall for someone totally inappropriate? As a plain Jane myself, I look forward to seeing this girl really blossom into someone special.

The Girl in the Steel Corset by Kady Cross Release Date: May 24th 2011
Why Stalk: I love that dress! I want that book! Oh boy, do I want it. Plus, it is a steampunk romance, doesn't get much better than that! The girl's name is Finley, I am so a using-boy's-names-for-girls fan.

Starcrossed by Josephine Angelini Release Date: May 31st 2011
Why Stalk: Greek Mythology, demigods, pretty cover, star-crossed lovers, I think we have a winner folks.

Magic Slays by Ilona Andrews Release Date: May 31st 2011
Why Stalk: I will shove people out of the way to get this on release day, small children and grandparents included. It is an amazing adult series that should be read by all urban fantasy lovers.

These are all my most anticipated releases for May. Got any you'd like to add? Comment below or e-mail me from the "contact me" page.
