Hot Off the Presses: New YA Releasing May 5-11

Welcome to Hot Off the Presses!  

Tuesday is book release day, so every Tuesday I tell you about all the great new YA books you can buy in the week to come. If you're a reviewer, you can also link your blog or Goodreads reviews of any YA book publishing in the current month so we can all check them out!

Happy, happy May! There are so many great books this month to read and win :) This month's winner can pick any book up to $15 on either Amazon (for US winner) or The Book Depository (for international winner.)

Enter by linking reviews of YA books that release in May or by commenting on other people's linked reviews.

Hot Off the Presses aims to include every traditionally published YA book. Please let me know about books that came out this week that I might have missed! Some titles may have different release dates outside the US.

  1. So many great books coming out. I am especially excited for Sarah J. Mass's new book and Crimson Bound!

    1. I enjoyed both of those, and if you liked one, I think you'll like the other!

  2. Such a good week for releases! I am reading The Heir and Saint Anything right now :)

    1. Curious about Saint Anything. I'm such a huge SD fan :)

  3. I just got my greedy little hands on Amy Plum's new book and I simply can't wait o jump into it. I loved the first one and I have a feeling this one might be even more exciting. Kasie West's book is another one I intend to read. Hers are usually hit or miss, but I have a great feeling about The Fill In Boyfriend.

  4. Certainly quite a few titles to choose from :) Crimson Bound and A Court of Thorns and Roses are my favorites, though. Great selection, Jen!

  5. Ah yes, a gazillion new books are out. Must be May! :)

  6. Really hoping to get my hands on A Court of Thorns and Roses && Crimson Bound!

  7. So many great new releases! Of course the greatest one in my opinion would be ACOTAR!


  8. I think yesterday was one of my favorite days for books ever! I got Crimson Bound, A Court of Thorns and Roses, and The Fill-In Boyfriend. There are several more that I'm planning on reading as well. This is a great week for books!

  10. OHMYGOD May is going to do some serious damage to my bank account. I don't even mind though! Haha :)

  11. So many new releases! I have read Undertow and it is so good! The Court of Thorn and Roses is on my TBR for sure.

  12. HAH I have so many ARCs for this month that is being released this week that I haven't read yet O_O I'm still waiting for my copy of ACOTAR to come in the mail.. I can't start without it! Reading The Summoner right now and it's okay... a bit fanfiction-y though.
