Things I've read lately:

Seanan McGuire: Magic for Nothing (Cryptid book 6).
- in which one of the Price-Healey women runs off to join the circus.

Mishell Baker: Phantom Pains (Arcadia Project book 2).
- in which everyone gets manipulated and at least three new truths about the universe are revealed. Also features a manticore who isn't so bad once you get to know him.

John Scalzi: The Collapsing Empire
- Yep, it's non-milSF space opera, with politics and probably romance in the next book.

Matthew Quirk: Cold Barrel Zero
- a thriller in which the bad guys/good guys remain ambiguous until near the end.

Neil Gaiman: Norse Mythology
- adapted to modern sensibilities

Joe Lansdale: The Hap & Leonard series, books 1-10 or so
- in many of these books, one or both of our protagonists gain $100K or so and manages to spend or lose it before the next book. Also contains murder, assault, and righteous arson.

Annie Bellet: Dungeon Crawl (Twenty-Sided Sorceress book 8)
- in which the ramifications of past deals are revealed.

Marshall Maresca: The Holver Alley Crew (Maradaine book 5)
- in which there is a heist! in the interestingly-multi-ethnic medieval fantasy city of Maradaine

Patricia Briggs: Silence Fallen (Mercy Thompson book 10)
- in which someone explicitly acknowledges that Mercy is one of the 2-3 most powerful people in North America. Also, vampires, werewolves, and witches.

K. B. Spangler: A Girl and Her Fed series (4 Rachel Peng books, 1 Hope Blackwell book)
- in the universe next door where there were significant advances in neural interfaces, the cyborg community has the best parties. Fantasy with science-fictional trappings.
