May 2024 New Releases

Well, we blinked and it’s May! And with its arrival, we are not only entering into a new month of fabulous new books but a new publishing season as well! My TBR galaxy has just officially given up and surrendered to the reality that I will never read all the books I want to read. But I’m sure gonna try! There are 100 titles on this list of May 2024 New Releases that are on my radar, and they comprise a range of genres – contemporary, historical, cozy mystery, suspense, Amish fiction, children’s books, fantasy, science fiction, time crossing, young adult, dual timeline, and even a few non-fiction. And of course, expect to see lots of romance because it’s me, after all. So far I’m scheduled to review 19 of them, marked in the list with a 🕮. All books listed are Christian or clean in content, to the best of my knowledge.

And don’t forget to check out ALL the May 2024 New Releases (including titles I didn’t include in this post) on my Amazon list HERE.

    I’ve decided that I want to be you when I grow up!
    Except for the Amish ones, not my jam anymore, these all look wonderful!

  2. I love Andi’s comment! (Me, too. I wanna be you and Amish books have never been a magnet). I’m looking forward to your reviews for: Show Me Deceit. The Minor Miracle.

  3. Jackie

    It’s a thrill to be included! Thanks, Meez Carrie, and congratulations to all the authors with new releases this month!
