Sonja (SonjaC) | 398 comments I'm in for May!

7. May 9th, Lost Sock Memorial day: The Legend of Lyon Redmond - Julie Anne Long - Though I may not be able to wait until May 1 for this one... Anyone familiar with this series (this is book 11) knows the Lyon and Olivia have been 'searching' for each other for years!

And if I finish that one before May 1.... an interesting take on the 'search' Almost an Angel - Jade Lee

8. May 13th, Frog Jumping Day: Archer's Voice - Mia Sheridan (nature on the cover)
