I eat books like I eat chocolate - currently eaten:

Autonomous: A Novel by Annalee Newitz - damn good bit of sci-fi that combines multiple themes concerning patent bullshit/injustice, biotech-punk and implications of human like AI and how it interacts with humans + Ai and human slavery, along with a slightly non-gloomy take on climate change.

Provenance by Ann Leckie - eh, not as good as the Ancillary trilogy she did, but it does show more of the world she's built. A bit too slow for my tastes.

Persepolis Rising by James S.A. Corey - another excellent read from them that skips 3 decades of time to great effect and finally fires off the Chekhov's Gun thread started in Nemesis Games concerning the missing Martian Navy crews and ships. The ending's a downer, but sets up the plot lines of the next book nicely. Which I wont spawn this time :P

Currently reading:

Certain Dark Things by Silvia Moreno-Garcia - not my usual fare, but heard good things and so far it hasn't turned me off.
