I confess: While watching Avengers: Endgame, part of my brain was still fixed on the story I left behind in Red, White & Royal Blue by Casey McQuiston, out May 14. Red, White & Royal Blue envisions a world in which the first son of the United States has a clandestine love affair with the Prince of England, and it's as fun as it sounds.
In fact, all the books of May disprove any lingering misconception that reading isn't fun. Since the spring (almost summer!) is upon us, it's time to break out the juicy sagas, the rom-coms, the "unputdownable" thrillers. But within these genre reads are also discussions about social issues and being a person in the world.
