A most excellent book for a heat wave. Just enough plot to hold the book together. Also: Love! Betrayal! (but not too much.) Flirting! Rude officers! Pretty officers! Pretty boys! Fighting! (injury, but not too much dying.) The Running of the Bulls! Jealous co-worker! Spanish romantic guitar music! Roma! (not gypsies, thank you very much.) … More Viva Jacquelina! the Further Adventures of Jacky Faber, Over the Hills and Far Away by L.A. Meyer

Too many tests this season. Time for a reread of a really good series. It’s a rare series that just keeps getting better – every time the plot seems to get a bit stale, it takes a hard right and turns into something else that, on re-read, was carefully built up over the last two … More Magic Series – Kate Daniel – by Ilona Andrews

Most adorable book ever. I rec it to everyone 10 years and older. A young dragon caught a cold… in his fire. According to Grandpa in mythical Japan, he has to eat a phoenix shell in the Far North to relight his fire. Clearly, his two friends ill will tag along to help.
Disclaimer: Vatta had a war several books long, I missed it. Now Admiral Ky Vatta is having peace, and apparently peace comes with a heavy side-dish of people trying to kill her. What fun. Uncle CEO Vatta died ages ago, Auntie CEO wants to step down, and Cousin CEO-to-be needs Ky’s signature in order to … More Cold Welcome by Elizabeth Moon
This winter is far too cold for me. The only cure is to read books set on snowy mountains. With avalanches that kill people.

At least I don’t have to stay in a stinky yak barn to … More Within the Sanctuary of Wings by Marie Brennan
