Upcoming Releases - May 25 - May 30

There are so many good books coming out this week that I had difficulty keeping the list to only ten books.  It is shaping up to be such an exciting summer that I am having trouble focusing on what I have to currently read instead of thinking and hoping for those books yet to come.  Here are some of the books being released this week that I can't wait to read.
