May Debut Novels

The first time you experience something new, it's exciting! For me reading a brand new book is a great experience. Especially when it is combined with a first time author. Yes there is a chance the book will fall flat but usually the book is amazing.
 Last month I listed several new debut novels which were released in April. Several people requested more listings of debut novels, here is a listing of some new novels being released in May. Be bold, be daring and try one of these debut novels.
