Enregistrer My stack at Reading Reality isn't much taller than what I'll post here. Some weeks are like that.

But I have some books this week that I've been waiting for, so I can certainly tease you right here and right now!

Cave of Bones by Anne Hillerman
Many, many moons ago, I began Tony Hillerman's evocative Leaphorn and Chee mystery series on a long commute. Mysteries are great on audio, but this was at a time when there weren't a lot of audiobooks available, so I took what I could get. And I got hooked on this series. When Tony Hillerman died a few years ago, I assumed that the series was over. But his daughter Anne, also an author, resurrected it by adding a new point-of-view character and continuing this marvelous series in awesome fashion. If you love mysteries, particularly if you are a fan of Longmire, this series is not to be missed.

The Forbidden Heir by M.J. Scott
This is the long anticipated second book in the author's utterly magical Four Arts series, after 2015's The Shattered Court. Court was one of my favorite books of that year, and I've been waiting on pins and needles for the second book in the series ever since. If you love fantasy romance, this series is a treat!

Heart Sight by Robin D. Owens
The Celta's Heartmate series has become one of my all time favorite series. It sits right on the border between science fiction and fantasy, much in the same way that Anne McCaffrey's beloved Pern series does. Day to day life on Celta feels like fantasy, but Celta is a lost colony just like Pern, making it SF after all. The worldbuilding is top-notch, feeling like a functional place that a person could actually live in. And the romances are always marvelous. This is the one series that makes the fated mate trope work, by making the protagonists seriously have to work for their HEA.
