I don´t think I can wait until May 31st. I mean look at all those new books... I can smell them from here... and also see where my paycheck is going.

For the week of May 22, under historical, you've listed _Temptations of a Wallflower_ by Lisa Kleypas. That's wrong twice. _Temptations of a Wallflower_ is by Eva Leigh. The new Lisa Kleypas is _Marrying Winterborne_.
3. kahintenn
Mary Balogh's Only Beloved is out May 3. This is my most anticipated read of May despite the fact that May will be a fabulous month for historicals.
4. J.Patrick
Thanks @filkferengi for letting us know. It has been updated. Yes @Romi and @kahintenn it seems all the good books are making us wait. Just check out the last week of the shopping list.
5. Merlyssa Cormack
You're Still the One by Darcy Burke in Week of May 15-21 /Contemporary is already out. It released April 5.
