Spring has sprung: What’s happening in May?

Throughout April, I have read some brilliant books and received some excellent book post to read throughout May. I have thoroughly enjoyed being back at publishing events more frequently; I attended the SYP social following the London Book Fair and their Literary Bingo event which was a roaring success. I also attended the Get a Job in Publishing Course run by Aki Schilz of The Literary Consultancy.


Having a look back through what I have read this month:

The Wolf by Leo Carew

Now You See by Max Manning

The Water Cure by Sophie Mackintosh

Where the Light Gets In by Lucy Dillon

Part one of IT by Stephen King

The Pool House by Tasmina Perry

Don’t Make a Sound by David Jackson

Guess Who by Chris McGeorge


Phew, I certainly smashed my April reading target! With seven full books read, part one of a King novel and being halfway through King’s latest book, I am impressed with myself.

Without further ado, the part we all love…
In May, you can expect reviews of:

The Outsider by Stephen King out 22 May

The House Swap by Rebecca Fleet out 3 May + Blog Tour 7 May

Rose Gold by David Barker out 10 May

OMG What a Complete Aisling by Emer McLysaght & Sarah Breen out 11 May + Blog Tour 14 May


Indigo Lost by S.R. Summers + Blog Tour 14 May

Cross Her Heart by Sarah Pinborough out 17 May

The Cult on Fog Island by Mariette Lindstein out 17 May

Kiss Me Kill Me by James Carol out 31 May

We Other by Sue Bentley + Blog Tour 29 May


I am looking forward to getting through these 9 books, especially Stephen King’s new thriller which already has me completely hooked!

As well as this, I will be attending a few publishing/bookish events this month. My currently scheduled events include the Society of Young Publishers social on 10 May and the SYP panel event entitled ‘The Wider World of Publishing’ on 17 May. I look forward to an excellent May!
