May reads

May had it all – adventures in space, scheming fairies, and love stories galore! Here are my faves…

Winter’s Orbit by Everina Maxwell cemented my view that I really do love things set way in the future and in a galaxy far, far away. This setting gives authors the freedom to change facets of society that are outdated and unkind – I particularly love how gender is handled in this book. There’s forced marriage, mysterious murders, and getting lost in the snow – plus some weird alien creatures! If you rated The Long Way to a Small Angry Planet by Becky Chambers and Project Hail Mary by Andy Weir, then you’ll love this.

The Problem with Fae by Emma Bradley is the second in the Arcanium series, and it doesn’t disappoint! More magic, more pesky fairies, and more adventures. This is a great YA story for teens who don’t want loads of angst or overly romantic plot lines – it’s all about friendship, fun, and stopping the bad guys. I can’t wait for the next one!

Gay Club! by Simon James Green is one that not only his stanch fans will love, but I’m sure it will draw in loads of new readers because WHO CAN RESIST THAT COVER?! Following a group of teens as they grapple with the joys and difficulties of being LGBTQ+ in todays schools and world, this book will have you both laughing and tearing up in equal measure.

Book Lovers by Emily Henry is a new firm fave. I always know I’m going to enjoy her books, and this one blew me away. I love stories that feature bookish characters, and this one is FULL of them. Plus you get some beautiful writing, steamy spice, and cute small town vibes. If you are a rom-com fan, then you need to get your hands on this.

As always, read them all and we can be chums!
