May Releases!

I am so sorry for the lack of posts. Actually, I haven't even realized the last time I posted was on WEDNESDAY! Oh my gosh. But, well... I don't have much to post neither time. I should be finishing a project right now, by the way. I just thought I owe you something, so I decided to post some books that are coming out this month and that I am so excited to read... SOMEDAY.

The Red Pyramid (The Kane Chronicles #1)
By Rick Riordan

May 4th, 2010
Hardcover, 528 pages
By Hyperion Books

Synopsis: Since their mother’s death, Carter and Sadie have become near strangers. While Sadie has lived with her grandparents in London, her brother has traveled the world with their father, the brilliant Egyptologist, Dr. Julius Kane.

One night, Dr. Kane brings the siblings together for a "research experiment" at the British Museum, where he hopes to set things right for his family. Instead, he unleashes the Egyptian god Set, who banishes him to oblivion and forces the children to flee for their lives.

Soon, Sadie and Carter discover that the gods of Egypt are waking, and the worst of them--Set--has his sights on the Kanes. To stop him, the siblings embark on a dangerous journey across the globe--a quest that brings them ever closer to the truth about their family, and their links to a secret order that has existed since the time of the pharaohs.

As a fan of Rick Riordan's Percy Jackson series, The Read Pyramid is the May release I'm most excited for!
Shade
By Jeri Smith-Ready

May 4th, 2010
Hardcover, 320 pages
By Simon Pulse

Synopsis: Love ties them together. Death can't tear them apart.

Best. Birthday. Ever. At least, it was supposed to be. With Logan's band playing a critical gig and Aura's plans for an intimate after-party, Aura knows it will be the most memorable night of her boyfriend's life. She never thought it would be his last.

Logan's sudden death leaves Aura devastated. He's gone. Well, sort of. Like everyone born after the Shift, Aura can see and hear ghosts. This mysterious ability has always been annoying, and Aura had wanted nothing more than to figure out why the Shift happened so she can undo it. But not with Logan's violet-hued spirit still hanging around. Because dead Logan is almost as real as ever. Almost.

It doesn't help that Aura's new friend Zachary is so understanding--and so very alive. His support means more to Aura than she cares to admit. As Aura's relationships with the dead and the living grow ever complicated, so do her feelings for Logan and Zachary. Each holds a piece of Aura's heart... and clues to the secret of the Shift.

Actually, at first, I wasn't so interested in this one. But, after reading so many good reviews, I thought I could enjoy as well.

Restoring Harmony
By Joelle Anthony

May 13th, 2010
Hardcover, 320 pages
By Putnam Juvenile

Synopsis: The year is 2041, and sixteen-year-old Molly McClure has lived a relatively quiet life on an isolated farming island in Canada, but when her family fears the worst may have happened to her grandparents in the US, Molly must brave the dangerous, chaotic world left after global economic collapse—one of massive oil shortages, rampant crime, and abandoned cities.

Molly is relieved to find her grandparents alive in their Portland suburb, but they’re financially ruined and practically starving. What should’ve been a quick trip turns into a full-fledged rescue mission. And when Molly witnesses something the local crime bosses wishes she hadn’t, Molly’s only way home may be to beat them at their own game. Luckily, there’s a handsome stranger who’s willing to help.

I don't think I ever read a dystopian while I knew it was a dystopian, so it would be my first. This future thing sounds awesome!
Spirit Bound (Vampire Academy #5)
By Richelle Mead

May 18th, 2010
Hardcover, 528 pages
By Razorbill

Synopsis: Dimitri gave Rose the ultimate choice. But she chose wrong…

After a long and heartbreaking journey to Dimitri’s birthplace in Siberia, Rose Hathaway has finally returned to St. Vladimir’s—and to her best friend, Lissa. It is nearly graduation, and the girls can’t wait for their real lives beyond the Academy’s iron gates to begin. But Rose’s heart still aches for Dimitri, and he's out there, somewhere.

She failed to kill him when she had the chance. And now her worst fears are about to come true. Dimitri has tasted her blood, and she knows in her heart that he is hunting her. And if Rose won't join him, he won't rest until he's silenced her... forever.

It's so obvious why I am putting this in the list, right? I am such a crazy fun of this series! I am extremely excited, almost dying, to know what comes next in Spirit Bound. If I could I'd have already pre-ordered a copy.
Claire de Lune
By Christine Johnson

May 18th, 2010
Hardcover, 256 pages
By Simon Pulse

Synopsis: Torn between two destinies?

Claire is having the perfect sixteenth birthday. Her pool party is a big success, and gorgeous Matthew keeps chatting and flirting with her as if she's the only girl there. But that night, she discovers something that takes away all sense of normalcy: she's a werewolf.

As Claire is initiated into the pack of female werewolves, she must deal not only with her changing identity, but also with a rogue werewolf who is putting everyone she knows in danger. Claire's new life threatens her blossoming romance with Matthew, whose father is leading the werewolf hunt. Now burdened with a dark secret and pushing the boundaries of forbidden love, Claire is struggling to feel comfortable in either skin. With her lupine loyalty at odds with her human heart, she will make a choice that will change her forever?

Werewolves! Besides Twilight, also never read something related to werewolves. So, I thought I should try this.

Which May Release you are most antecipating for?
