    Grimspace by Ann Aguirre: I really wasn't sure if I would like it because of the writing style and the fact that it was inspired by the current crop of urban fantasy, which I hate, but I found it compulsively readable and I'm looking forward to the rest of the series.

    Fruits Basket Vol. 17 by Natsuki Takaya: The usual combination of cute and angsty. I have enjoyed the direction this manga has taken and the de-emphasis on the love triangle it started out with.

    Heaven Chronicles by Joan D. Vinge: Since this wasn't a whole novel, but two related novellas in one book, it didn't get quite as much into the angst and torture that some of her novels do and the characters weren't explored as in-depth as I was craving, but pretty much everything she's written rocks, so it was a good read. My favorite bits were the feminist aspects, the biological and reproductive rights questions asked, and the unique form of marriage her one society had to take up in order to survive.
