May book releases that have caught my eye – 2016

May Book Releases

There is an eclectic set of titles scheduled for release in May – from quirky short story collections (Helen Phillips, Mark Haddon), long-awaited new novels from authors we love (Daniel O’Malley, Toni Jordan), translated historical fiction, and debut literary titles set to make new authors big names in the industry.

Here are the 9 fiction titles that have particularly caught my eye, two of which have been compared to my all-time favourite novel Cloud Atlas. Excited? Just a little…

Which of these new books will you be adding to your ‘must read’ list?

Please share with us in the comments below any other titles being released in May that you are particularly looking forward to.

And, if these publication dates are simply too long to wait, here are some great books to read already on the shelves — the April and March fiction releases that piqued our interest.
