Fly By Night
I loved this - it was both very reminiscent of Diana Wynne Jones and Joan AIken, whilst also being very much it's own thing. Best of both worlds!

Luna: New Moon
This was a sci-fi novel with lots of brown characters, queer characters and women, so it would have had to have worked quite hard to lose me. It wasn't perfect, but I thoroughly enjoyed it and am looking forward to the next in the... series? Trilogy? Not sure. (I hope it is less typo riddled than this one was, though. :/)

Didn't finish: 1610: A Sundial In A Grave (Mary Gentle) - what a disappointment. I was so impressed with Ash, by the same author, but this really failed to live up to it. It's a lesser book - less compelling, less complex - and the characters were neither likeable nor interesting enough to make up for a lack of likeability. And it threw in one of my least favourite tropes as a twist: spoilers ) Blargh. Maybe it got better after I gave up on it (about a quarter of the way through), but I was really not up for finding out.
