Book Recs

I'm looking for something to read, so rec me books! New books, or books that are about to come out, including your own books. Comment with title, author, and why you liked it/are looking forward to it.

ETA: Fantasy, mystery, science fiction, romance, it's all good.
ETA2: And historical fiction or non-fiction!

God Stalk by P. C. Hodgell. I've loved this book, and later series, for years. The heroine is strong, tenacious and creative without having all the answers, and the world she has to negotiate, where all gods and faiths exist simultaneously, is fascinating. It's a bit hard to find, but I believe Baen has recently re-released it as an e-book.

I read God Stalk when it was first published years ago and loved it.

Right. Sort of iffy as to qualifying as a new book, but they are re-releasing it in January. -g-

The only thing I'm currently reading is City of Bones and I think you've read it.

God Stalk has a couple of sequels too, which are nearly as good. P.C. Hodgell ([Bad username: tegmeth/]) is at work on the next book, due out in the new year, too.

Actually, all the books in that series are excellent. Weird, but excellent. Plus the author uses words like lugubrious and prognathous. How can you go wrong?

I also really loved the 4 Bracebridge mysteries by Margaret Miles. Set in 1760s Massachusetts, they chronicle mysteries solved by a young widow and her neighbor, one of the town selectmen. They give a beautiful picture of everyday life then.
A Wicked Way to Burn
Too Soon for Flowers
No Rest for the Dove
A Mischeif in the Snow

They are wonderful books, and I keep hoping that she comes out with more.

And I'm willing to lend, if you can't find them. ;o)

Ooh, those do sound good! I'll have to see if I can find them.

I'm surprised to say that I looked on Amazon, and they have all the paperbacks available.....which is just strange. But I'm still willing to loan, just in case. ;o)
