Popular Book Releases: May 2024

By: Graeme, April 27th, 2024 12:04 pm.

A lot of great releases coming out in May 2024, and In this post, we’ll list all of the new book releases by some of the more popular authors here on Book Notification based on follow count.

The book most people are looking forward to this one is no doubt “Think Twice”, a new novel by Harlan Coben. But it isn’t just any new novel – “Think Twice” is the first book in the Myron Bolitar series in 8 years!

The last book released was “Home”, and although we did get “Win” in between, we all missed the antics of Myron. It features Greg Downing, a prominent character in “Fade Away”. He is presumed dead and Harlan gave a euology at his funeral – but now FBI agents have stormed into Myrons office, demanding to know where Greg is as he is still alive.

Speaking of returns – The Women’s Murder Club are back! The 24th novel in the series, titled “The 24th Hour” is releasing this month. This thrilling series is written by both James Patterson and Maxine Paetro.

She’s one of the best standalone thriller authors out there, and Ruth Ware returns this month with a book titled “One Perfect Couple”. I refuse to even read the description as I love to go into her books blind. All I know is May 21st, I’ll be burning the midnight oil reading this great novel!

Who doesn’t love Nora Roberts? The award winning and New York Times bestselling author has a new standalone novel releasing this month. Titled “Mind Games”, it’s a suspensful story of love, family, tragedy and trauma.

And what could make the month even better but a new horror collection by Stephen King! “You Like It Darker” releases May 21st, 2024 with 12 stories, many that have never been published.
