Heart's Blood

In the honor of February "the month of love" I am starting a category of books with "heart" in their titles. Yes this is mostly so I can finally read Outlander #9 but there are a lot of other enticing titles. This category will outlast February for sure as several of the books are of "doorstop" length. 



Written in my Own Heart's Blood by Diana Gabaldon currently reading

I have held off on reading this 8th book in the Outlander series as so far it is the last published. The author is hard at work on the 9th book and although she had hoped publish sometime in 2019--it is now 2020 with no publication date in sight. I can wait no longer--this is exactly the kind of immersive book reading experience that "my heart" is longing for right now--so I am giving it solace and escaping once again into this fabulous world. 


  Depraved Heart by Patricia Cornwell to be read

This is the 23rd Kate Scarpetta novel. I generally never read out of order but this sounds good and was in one of my many TBR stacks already. I haven't read any of her books since the 1990's and I can't remember why I stopped.


  The Death of the Heart by Elizabeth Bowen to be read

This is an author I have never read but after seeing her name mentioned numerous times of Bookish Twitter and after reading JacquiWine's wonderful review I could resist no longer and this title considered one of her best works was a perfect fit. 


  My Heart is my Own by John Guy to be read

A long-overdue and dramatic reinterpretation of the life of Mary, Queen of Scots by one of the leading historians at work today and a book I cannot wait to start. I do a lot of Royal reading--most recently the Tudors. I am understandably keen to read more on Elizabeth I's  biggest rival. A door stopping read.


  Heart and Soul by Maeve Binchy to be read

A Maeve Binchy title that I have not read--what a perfect way to round out this category with heart.
