Did you know that Goodreads always lists the new book releases per month? You can find these lists right here (either by genre or according to the authors on your shelves). So I thought it time to share the new fiction releases of May 2016 with you.

  1. Modern Lovers by Emma Straub
    Publication date: May 31st 2016
    Straub packs wisdom and insight and humor together in a satisfying book about neighbors and nosiness, ambition and pleasure, the excitement of youth, the shock of middle age, and the fact that our passions—be they food, or friendship, or music—never go away, they just evolve and grow along with us.
  2. LaRose by Louise Erdrich
    Publication date: May 10th 2016
    Inspiring and affecting, LaRose is a powerful exploration of loss, justice, and the reparation of the human heart, and an unforgettable, dazzling tour de force from one of America’s most distinguished literary masters.
  3. Zero K by Don DeLillo
    Publication date: May 3rd 2016
    Don DeLillo’s seductive, spectacularly observed and brilliant new novel weighs the darkness of the world—terrorism, floods, fires, famine, plague—against the beauty and humanity of everyday life; love, awe, “the intimate touch of earth and sun.”
  4. Imagine Me Gone by Adam Haslett
    Publication date: May 3rd 2016
    When Margaret’s fiancé, John, is hospitalized for depression in 1960s London, she faces a choice: carry on with their plans despite what she now knows of his condition, or back away from the suffering it may bring her. She decides to marry him. Imagine Me Gone is the unforgettable story of what unfolds from this act of love and faith.
  5. The Assistants by Camille Perri
    Publication date: May 3rd 2016
    The Assistants speaks directly to a new generation of women who feel stuck and unable to get ahead playing by the rules. It will appeal to all of those who have ever asked themselves, “How is it that after all these years, we are still assistants?”

Are any of these ending up on your to-read lists? Be sure to let me know in the comments!
