May has finally arrived, but with stay-at-home and shelter-in-place orders still in effect in many places, it’s unlikely we’ll be enjoying the warm weather the way we normally would.

From adventures to save the galaxy to feminist uprisings at medieval-themed restaurants, there’s no shortage of fascinating stories to fall into this month. There seems to be a YA release for just about everyone, no matter their genre preference. Whether you’re looking for court politics and sword fights or coming-of-age revelations, these May releases have you covered.

Whatever you’re looking to accomplish with your reading over the next few weeks, these books are to help.
