Books to Watch

It’s a clever approach that a librarian might have designed; to highlight books coming out next month, O, the Oprah Magazine pairs five older titles with new readalikes in a feature called “5 Books to Watch for This May.”

Some of the pairings are a bit odd — Girl in Translation, one of the titles that came up in our recent Galley Chat, is paired with Cinderella (yes, the tale by the Brothers Grimm). It was also featured in Entertainment Weekly‘s recent “18 Books We Can’t Wait to Read This Summer” feature.
