May Book Haul!!

So at least I am more on time with posting my Book haul for the month of May. Crazy to believe that this month is already over, and it felt like it's just started!! I guess now that I don't have classes, time seems to get away from me much faster than it used to...OH WELL!! More time (Hopefully) to be reading. That is if I can ever keep my eyes awake enough during the night to read!! Well without me dragging on about lack of sleep, let me just get into my May Book Haul!!

Proof of Forever By: Lexa Hillyer
Of course I went on a little shopping binge before and after going on vacation. This was a book I picked up before, and I've been wanting it for SO long!! I just love everything about this cover, and am so interested in this story!

 Going from best friends, hanging out every summer at Camp Okahatchee to not even talking can put a damper on a lot of things! That is until the girls transport back in time from a photo booth flash and must recreate the past in order to return to the present.
No Love Allowed (Dodge Cove #1) By: Kate Evangelista
I've seen this book around Instagram for a while, and I even saw it at my local health store, and I've been wanting to get it! Of course with me, I ended up forgetting the name, just remembered what it looked like! Luckily, I was able to remember and grab myself the last copy at the store!

Caleb desperately needs a fake girlfriend. And Didi has taken on that role. Lavish parties, new experiences, summer tricks. The only thing is to not gall in love...
In The Bag By: Kate Klise
I found this book in the bargain section at Chapters, and for some reason it was really compelling. I think that because there was a passport and luggage on the cover, I kind of expected some travelling fun, or just fun adventures in general!

Two single parents, globe hopping, lost luggage, found opportunities and some old fashioned flirting. What could go wrong here??
A Survival Guide For Life By: Bear Grylls
So I was recommended this book by a friend, and as soon as I came home from vacation, I immediately bought the very last one (man I've got some luck!) and just read through all of it! It took me a while to write a review (which you can find on my blog now) because I found it so empowering and inspirational, It was very unique!

This book is all about learning the type of skills to help you succeed and achieve your maximum potential. It doesn't matter what age you are, there are always going to be dreams and goals we have. We also have to realize that there will be obstacles, but if we focus on what's most important, than the impossible becomes possible!

Baby Proof By: Emily Giffin
So if you've seen my other book hauls, you may have seen me pick up Something Borrowed by Emily as well. Have I read it? No. BUT I really have heard amazing things, and obviously I've seen the movie... :)

Claudia Parr has given up on finding a man who feels the same way, until she finally meets Ben. They both have the same aspirations, and goals...until one of them changes their mind and actually wants to have a child.
Did I Mention I Need You? (DIMILY #2) By: Estelle Maskame
So I already picked up book 1 in this trilogy, and I have yet to start it, but I've heard raves over this series! Of course with a cover on all three that look something like this, how can you not love it??

Because this is the second in the series, I am not reading the Synopsis (Because SPOILERS?!!)
The Start of Me and You By: Emery Lord
To be honest, I think I bought the E-book version of this book, but when it had a different cover. I just have way too many books, sometimes that tends to happen, but I am definitely not upset about it!

Paige Hancock's boyfriend died in a swimming pool accident, she began to shut down. But now she has decided to rejoin the world, and tackle a few things on her list. Date her crush, and swim...
After Ever Happy (After #4) By: Anna Todd
So as most of you know, I got the chance to meet Anna at a book signing with her fellow Wattpad authors who wrote Imagines. It was amazing, and they all were so very kind!

You probably know that I will not be reading the synopsis for this as well, because I just cannot ruin the awesomeness that is this series...Yes I still need to read them :)
Soothsayer (Soothsayer #1) By: Allison Sipe
I received this book from Allison herself, after talking to an Instagram friend. There was a lot of talk about this book, and I mean this cover alone! So beautiful as well as how interesting the story sounds!

Violet couldn't be linked to the medieval legends of King Arthur, until her almost death changed everything! Realizing she has magic, she needs to decide whether to run or face destiny on her own.
Just a Few Inches By: Tara St. Pierre
I also received this book for a review by Tara herself. When I was contacted, I was instantly attracted to the story line, so when the book arrived, I was a little too excited! 

Carrie just wants to be smaller. To fit into the perfect dress for the Valentine's Day Dance, and to look amazing for her boyfriend, and to finally be noticed. Exercising and dieting aren't working, but an Ad for weight loss pills promises quicker solutions...should she make that leap, or is it really about her body?
The Perfect Neighbors By: Sarah Pekkanen
I received this book for a review by Simon and Schuster Canada (Thank you!) The synopsis of this story was definitely interesting, and so is this cover! Like what seems to be going on that you're looking through the bushes for??

Kellie Scott has just returned to work after a decade of being a stay-at-home mom. She is adjusting to all of the new obstacles, and soaking in the dangerously handsome and very married male colleague. Then the family moves to a quiet cul-de-sac, that seems to be hiding more than their sugar from neighbours...

Unflinching By: Jody Mitic
So I received this from Indigo Chapters (Thank you!!) for the book club I am part of with them. We were to read this book for the month of May and then Tweet with the author at the end of the month. Sadly I do have to admit that I never got the chance to read it this month, and it really sucks!

This is the story of the making of a Canadian Sniper. Jody is a retired elise sniper who lost both of his legs in Afghanistan. This is a memoir on military issues, endurance, and overcoming adversity.
Hot Dudes Reading By: The Makers of Hot Dudes Reading
So if you own Instagram and are a booklover, then I am PRETTY SURE you have come across the Instagram feed of Hot Dudes Reading. I've of course been following them, and have definitely enjoyed the new posts.

So when this book came out, I was a little hesitant, then thought WHY NOT?! This book takes it's readers on a ride through all five boroughs of New York City, covering a different subway line.
Finding Home By: Erin Mahoney
I did receive this book for review by Erin herself, and I am SO happy she gave me this copy, because after Going The Distance (Review is up on my blog!) I was just so in love! Everything about that story was amazing and although I would like to read more about the characters, I know that's not happening anytime soon.

Finding home is about Kiley spending the summer in a small town in North Carolina. She wants all the summer fun without any responsibilities. She bonds immediately with Renee, who has introduced her to her brother (who loves to play the field...) Could there be a potential love story, or just another fling?

Binge By: Tyler Oakley
I have seen this book around EVERYWHERE! Instagram, Twitter, YouTube, you name it! Of course it's because everyone knows who Tyler is (although to be honest, I've never seen his channel) I did receive this book from the lovelies over at Chapters Indigo, when I received some other interesting mail from them!

This is a story about Tyler's own collection of hilarious essays written int he voice that has earned him 10 million followers everywhere. I've heard mixed reviews, but I hope it's interesting!
Graduation Day (The Testing #3) By: Joelle Charbonneau
I actually bought the first book in this series a while back at a half price book store I believe, because I've been wanting to read it after reading Divergent and a Ben Elton book. Same style, so naturally I've been buying a lot of Dystopian novels! Weird enough, I found this last book in the series at Dollarama....DOLLARAMA! crazy I know!!

So for obvious reasons-since I never read the first book yet- I will not be spoiling you with what this book is about (Sorry!!)
Gameboard of the Gods (Age of X #1) By: Richelle Mead
So I don't know if anyone else knew about this book, because I sure didn't! It's probably because I never read The Vampire Diaries either...BUT this was also a Dollarama find! Crazy how they actually have popular authors selling books there!

This is about a futuristic world nearly destroyed by religious extremists. Justin March Lives in Exile after failing at his job, but now has a second chance with Mae Koskinen to bring him back to the Republic of United North America. They need to work together to solve a string of ritualistic murders, that very well might have exposed them to danger.

When We Collided By: Emery Lord
So I've seen When We Collided on Instagram and practically every bookstore selling it right at the front and center. I wish I was signed up to a book subscription box, because they actually had provided this book and bookish items related to it in their May box. But as soon as I could, I picked up my own copy, because...well just because! It's gorgeous!

Jonah never thought a girl like Vivi would ever come along. Vivi never thought Jonah would light up her world. New love, old wounds and forces beyond control, these two find that when you collide with the right person, it will change your life forever.

The Problem with Forever By: Jennifer L. Armentrout
Yet another new release I've seen everywhere, so I am totally drawn to this cover! It just screams romance/heartbreak! I've been wanting to get my hands on this ever since Jennifer L. Armentrout announced it coming out!

Mallory is used to being home-schooled. Now facing her senior year at a public high school, she needs to deal with all types of scenarios and...boys... that she is meeting for the first time. Of course when someone like Rider Stark appears, you tend to find yourself getting sucked into his world, and past. Can she stay quiet, or will she have to speak up for once?
Places No One Knows By: Brenna Yovanoff
To be honest, I don't think I've seen this book around as much as the last two, but since I bought it, it seems to become more noticed. It was definitely a last minute add on, and I couldn't pull myself into not getting it! The cover, the story...I just HAD to! :)

Waverly Camdenmar spends nights running until she can't think. Marshall Holt is a loser. He drinks on school nights and gets stoned. One night the two unlikely people to get together sort of happens. Waverly dreams about being in Marshall's bedroom. In her dreams, things are changed, but can it ever become reality?

Okay Bookworms, that would be all for my Book Haul for the Month of May! I hope you liked the new titles I picked up, and if there are any I should read ASAP for a review, leave a comment below!

So until the next time, Keep Reading!!
Your Graduated Bookworm!! :)
