Posted on Location: 2 min read 1018 views

Hey Book lovin’ Queens & Kings,

Let me tell you, there are some really amazing books coming out in May and I can’t wait to share them.

From a political page-turner that delivers, a memoir of grief by a prolific feminist voice,  a riveting book about strong women during the Cuban Revolution, a Jamaican story, and a Filipino story both about family ties and self-discovering and a search for truth and a middle school historical mystery, there are some great ones to add to your list. Here are my picks for the best new books to look out for this May.
