May's To Read List

April has been a month of many, many new novels to read and so I'm pretty excited about May's to read list. This month has a bit of a random selection, but essentially I just picked the four books I'm most excited to read out of the pile of new ones that I've amassed and so there's some murder mystery, some YA fiction and some chick lit in there; so essentially, there's something for everyone - keep an eye out!

1: Speaking From Among The Bones - Alan Bradley
This sounds like it's going to be an old school, Agatha Christie type novel; only interestingly, it's central character is only 11 years old. I picked this one up out of pure curiosity, and bizarrely I accidentally ended up buying book number five in a series because I'm incapable of actually ensuring that I take the right book home with me - but I'm sure that it's going to be fine, all in all. Maybe. Only one way to find out.

2: The One Safe Place - Tania Unsworth
This is a YA novel and we all know how I feel about them and so, essentially, this is probably the one that I'm most excited about out of the four. I have no idea what this is about, only I know that it's set in a suitably terrifying children's home. I don't have a clue what to expect, but I have high hopes for this one. I mean I've judged it by it's cover, and I'm pretty sure there's a saying about that, but surely that has to work sometimes, right?

3: This Secret We're Keeping - Rebecca Done
This one is probably the one that sounds like the most cheesy out of the lot - as this is about a student and a teacher that had a relationship nearly twenty years ago, only to come back into each other's lives now. I like the sound of this, and I like that it has a little twist in that it says the teacher has changed his identity - but I'm not holding out much hope that it's going to end in anything more than at least two people walking off into the sunset (not that I'm against that).

4: It's Not Me, It's You - Mhairi McFarlane
Straight up - I bought this for the title. This does sound like it's going to be one of those books that leaves me feeling as though my life has been slightly enriched by reading it - but even if it ends up being a straight up romance novel, I won't be mad about it. I'm actually really excited to getting around to reading it!

What's on your to-read list this month?
