by Lauren

May 3rd is a bittersweet kind of day :)

Our wallets are going to be dead but sooooo many awesome book are coming out May 3rd. Most of the books are continuations of some of my favorite series or by authors I adore!

Here’s a list some of the books I can’t wait to buy this coming May 3rd:

What Are You Reading Wednesday is hosted by It’s A Reading Thing. #WAYRW

What’s the name of your current read? 

Hey! It’s Kaitlin posting! I am currently reading The Darkest Minds by Alexandra Bracken.

Go to page 34 in your book or 34% in your eBook and share a couple of sentences.

“Her chin came down to rest against her chest. Long, tangled masses of hair fell over her shoulders and cheeks, hiding her expression. I felt it then – the way that the hold I had on her had suddenly sprung free. I had the strangest sensation of floating, of drifting farther and farther away with nothing and no one to cling to. I was standing right beside her, but the distance between us had split into the kind of canyon I could’t jump across.”

Would you like to live in the world that exists within your book? Why or why not?
