Spoilers book clubs May 2022

My readers are AWESOME! I got a tip (see comments!!!!) about this month’s picks!

Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt is Read With Jenna’s Today Show pick for May 2022
GMA -Good Morning America- pick for May 2022
Officially saw the sticker for Oprah’s book club. I should have know cause she is interviewing her on TV here soon.
Reese’s book club selection for May 2022
Sorry the picture is grainy! I screenshoted it!

Thanks to one of my readers for finding the sticker for me! That was pretty amazing sleuthing! 🙂

All I saw was the sticker online. Not sure if this will be a future one or this month’s. I found it on the Kindle Amazon app.

It is an unusual pick being a male lead character.

I noticed something odd on kindle too. It lists two of these books. One has a lot of reviews and the other the sticker. I wouldn’t think kindle would just add a book like this. It does seem fishy to me
I noticed reese has an untitled project with her production company with Sara. I looked into her books when trying to find a sticker for this month’s. She posted this today

*** I did not see reeses sticker in real life with my own eyes. I saw it in the Amazon Kindle store. If it is wrong, I am sorry. I thought the same thing … odd with a main male character lead. I am not sure if it is a fake or trying to throw us off. I wish I saw one in the store. I do know it has already released. If I saw a physical book, I would be more inclined to back up this find. ***

After the clues, I still think it is dictionary of lost words. But I do not have a sticker to back it up.

    Hi! I just saw a Read with Jenna sticker on Remarkably Bright Creatures by Shelby Van Pelt, and a GMA sticker on The Change by Kristin Miller. Both come out on May 3rd. I’m a cataloging librarian for a public library system, so I often see these ahead of time. I’ll update you if I see this month’s Reese book come in before you’ve posted.

      Oh wow! Thank you! I really appreciate the heads up! I will post these now! Thanks again!!!!!!!!

    I wonder if The Hacienda by Isabel Canas is a pick!

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      I wonder if Reese will pick it? It is not her typical genre though.

    • Madison | at | Reply

      It is not The Hacienda. We just got our copies in and there were no stickers.

      • Book Nerd | at | Reply

        Rats. I saw a copy of when women were dragons… no sticker.

  3. Laura | at | Reply

    Oooh I can’t wait for Reese’s club pick. Thanks for posting month after month.

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      You’re welcome! I have to wait until we get a shipment of books with stickers. I hope to know soon. It is getting down to the wire here.

      • Marie | at | Reply

        Maybe Book Lovers?
        It out May 3 in Canada too.

        • Book Nerd | at | Reply

          I do not know. It is a genre that she has not picked in a while. I have NOT seen the book come in yet. It could be that. I was expected it to arrive here this week. But no shipments of it yet.

  4. Trish Dukes | at | Reply

    This Time Tomorrow by Emma Straub has a perfect little circle on the cover that would fit the book club sticker.

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      I was spying this book on social media too. I think this book fits more of Reese’s style. Totally agree that this is a option.

      • Marie | at | Reply

        This book is released later in Canada and UK so I’m not sure this is the pick. It may be When women where dragons though. Can’t wait! It’s fun to guess. 🙂
        And thank you for your blog!

        • Book Nerd | at | Reply

          It is fun to guess. That is good to know though about the release.

        • Trish Dukes | at | Reply

          It was initially scheduled for a 5/17 release here, but I’ve seen it listed as 5/3 as well. I’m so ready to know!

  5. Kat | at | Reply

    I just want to say thank you for doing this blog.

  6. Laura | at | Reply

    hi so no clue yet for Reese’s then?

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      The moment I see a sticker, I will post. I am sorry, but my sister or myself hasn’t seen any stickers

  7. Jamie | at | Reply

    You are the best and I love checking this weekly sometimes daily lol! Thank you!

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      I am glad! I hope that I see a reese sticker before she announces.

  8. Jennifer | at | Reply

    I’m thinking Magpie by Elizabeth Day. Looks like it was previously released last September and is releasing on 5/3 with a new cover. She did that same thing with Lucky.

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      Yea. Maybe the reason why no one is seeing a sticker is because it is not a new release. 🤔

  9. Carly | at | Reply

    I was wondering if it’s Darling Girl. Has anybody seen a copy of that? Since Mother’s Day is in May, I think the book could be related to a mother/daughter relationship.

  10. Jason Williams | at | Reply

    While Reese usually doesn’t always go for on the radar writers Emily Henry’s upcoming Book Lovers is being printed up simultaneously in both Hardback and Paperback (which is unusual) with vendor purchases in the many thousands of copies. I haven’t seen a sticker on either the paper or hardbacks, but the numbers suggest that could be it. We’ll see.

  11. Bert | at | Reply

    I would guess Love Marriage by Monica Ali, but there is literally no room on the cover for a sticker. So I’m thinking it might be Elektra by Jennifer Saint.

    • Diana | at | Reply

      It’s not Elektra as I saw a copy instore, and there wasn’t a sticker

  12. Jennie H. | at | Reply

    I just finished Like a House on Fire by Lauren McBrayer. Could totally see Reese picking it.

  13. Kate | at | Reply

    Darling Girl? The Hello Sunshine Instagram account liked an Instagram review of the book. Has anyone seen the cover come in yet without a sticker?

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      I have not viewed the final copy of this book….

  14. Margaret | at | Reply

    Love your blog! Thanks for the exciting and reliable intel!

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      Thanks! My sister works at a place where she sees stickers. And I sometimes spot a sticker or two at my work. So between the two of us, I said I may as well post them. I liked to know beforehand to reserve it at the library. These books go from 1 week reserve to a year wait time after they announce it.

  15. Diana | at | Reply

    It’s not Love Marriage, Magpie or Elektra, as I’ve seen all of these on my local bookstore and there is no sticker

  16. Carly | at | Reply

    What about Our Little World or What We Do In The Dark? Has anybody seen them?

    • Diana | at | Reply

      I’ve seen What We Do In The Dark, and it doesn’t have a sticker

  17. Amy Hesterman | at | Reply

    Re: Reese’s May Pick- In looking at the books that will be released on May 3rd (not including the ones already mentioned above), could it be:

    Our Little World- Karen Winn
    When Women Were Dragons- Kelly Barnhill

  18. Kimberly | at | Reply

    Book of Night by Holly Black also releases May 3. Could be too hyped or commercial for Reese’s club though.

  19. Farah | at | Reply

    Is it our little world?

  20. Katie | at | Reply

    I just bought a copy of “When We We’re Dragons.” No Reese sticker.

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      I also saw a finished copy of this book. No sticker

  21. Lorissa | at | Reply

    Has anyone seen a copy of the other mother by Rachel Harper? could potentially be an option. Also thank you for doing this blog I love checking in every few days leading up to the beginning of each month, it’s so fun to guess.

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      I have not seen a finish copy. Let me check to see if my sister has….

  22. Jessica | at | Reply

    This wasn’t on my radar at all but it tags RBC in hash tags, it’s out May 3, and also hash tags female entrepreneurs… hmmm…

        I think she would have known if she were a pick before April. For celebrity book clubs, it seems that the books are picked at least 4 months in advance.

        Jenna Bush, in October, said that Oprah Winfrey contacted her in June about picking The Lincoln Highway by Amor Towles as Jenna’s BOTM choice.

      • Jessica | at | Reply

        Ah yes. Haha. I didn’t go further. I’m just at such a loss this time!

    • Jes | at | Reply

      Also, In the RBC app, there is a previous question asking RBC app followers “what independent bookstore would you like to visit?” Interesting…

    • Trish | at | Reply

      I’m reserving a copy anyway.

  23. Farah | at | Reply

    today is the may pick guess day for Reese book club..

  24. Trish | at | Reply

    First clue is up… What is the Meaning of This?
    No clue why the random capitalization. 🤷🏻‍♀️

  25. Star | at | Reply

    The dictionary of lost words? May 3 paperback release

  26. Jason Williams | at | Reply

    YA title – Family of Liars.

  27. Nebraska | at | Reply

    Hi! I got a gifted copy of a hardcover that comes out June 7 with a book club sticker on it. I’m happy to send you an email so you can verify!! Love your website btw 🙂

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      OMG that would be awesome. My email is booknerdalert@hotmail.com. That would be awesome for some intel. My readers are always so awesome! 🙂

    • Lesli | at | Reply

      Ooh can you share the title with us?

      • Nebraska | at | Reply

        It was These Impossible Things by Salma El-Wardany

        • Book Nerd | at | Reply

          Yes!!! It said untitled online. I couldn’t find a title!

        • Madison | at | Reply

          Ooh what book club sticker was it? This would be super helpful info to order some copies for our libraries.

  28. Farah | at | Reply

    It can’t be “Book lovers” can it? I found this online as a book club pick below

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      Some people claim that they saw a copy of it without the logo. I am doubtful. I think the reason why I have not spotted a sticker is that it is an older book. I suspect an older book being re-released this week. But I could be wrong. If it was new, I would have put my eyes on a sticker by now.

  29. AA | at | Reply

    I saw it’s been updated with Bennetts… but how does that fit any of the clues?

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      All I know is I saw a sticker on Amazon’s kindle app.

      • Trish | at | Reply

        I wonder if they’re somehow putting out fake stickers? Maybe it’s just me, but that’s a terrible choice. I’m a Scottoline fan, but this is not a good one.

        • Book Nerd | at | Reply

          Idk. It was on kindle app. Would Amazon put a fake sticker on a book?

      • Diana | at | Reply

        I don’t think it’s What Happened to the Bennett’s as I just saw it in store and there isn’t a sticker. I can send you a picture of the book in store if you’d like. It also isn’t Darling Girl or Out Little World.

        • Book Nerd | at | Reply

          I just saw a sticker on the Amazon Kindle store. Idk. I did not see the sticker in real life.

  30. AA | at | Reply

    I’m sure it’s been crazy month with comments and emails but I want to say thank you and your sister for helping us out with this blog postings all months.

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      You are welcome. This month has been crazy with everyone scrambling to see a sticker.

  31. Amy M | at | Reply

    I really think Dictionary of Lost Words fits the four clues the best.

  32. P | at | Reply

    Thank you for the effort you put in every month. You are truly appreciated

  33. AB | at | Reply

    Thank you for sharing! This has been a mysterious month for sure! Excited to read these picks!

  34. Trish | at | Reply

    The best part about the whole thing is that I’ve reserved nearly every guess at the library. I really need someone to pay me to stay home and read books. Thank you for keeping us updated!

  35. Lisa | at | Reply

    I just read What happened to the Bennetts last month and none of those clues match up. Maybe Amazon put the sticker by mistake?

  36. Amy M | at | Reply

    And the winner is…DICTIONARY OF LOST WORDS!!

  37. Ann | at | Reply

    I love this blog & appreciate it so much. I agree that it is always helpful to get a heads up in order to jump on library wait lists! Especially if we are trying to get a copy of the book to read along with a club’s schedule.

    Y’all nailed Reese’s May pick despite some initial doubt. This enabled me to jump on and get on wait list for one of two copies of The Dictionary of Lost Words.

    Thanks a bunch!!!! I always love scoping upcoming books out on here.

    • Book Nerd | at | Reply

      I am glad. Yea, I kept going back to that book. It was something that my co-worker said she thought was weird when she tried to order the book, the cover was missing. Well, this book has been out for a while. So I thought it was odd. Funny how the little things stick out like that. I am VERY happy that you enjoy seeing them. I do the same thing. I am able to either pre-order before the price increase OR reserve it on Overdrive. The wait times after her announcing a book can be months.
