It's that time of the month, book-lovers! There's an abundance of new must-read books coming your way this May, and the only downside is your TBR is about to be overflowing with fresh reads. With the weather warming up and the world at large feeling a little bit brighter all of a sudden, now is the perfect time to head outside (or stay in!) and get lost in a good book. Luckily, there's no shortage of beach reads hitting shelves this month, including Mary Kay Andrews's latest and a new summery tale from Jennifer Weiner. In the mood for something a little bit darker? There are plenty of literary-fiction reads, mysteries, and even a Greek-mythology retelling destined to take your breath away.

Read on to discover the 25 best books coming out this May (and don't forget to check out April's list of must reads for even more TBR inspiration).
