What I've read
Four short stories by A.M.Dellamonica. An extract of her book A Daughter of No Nation was in Lightspeed 67, I got caught up in it and went to look for the full thing, to discover it was the second of a series, and balked at the price. So I read three short stories which are related to these novels (but I think work well as standalone stories) - it's all kind of epic fantasy in a world made up of small islands and lots of sailing trade links and piracy:

Among the Silvering Herd
The Ugly Woman of Castello di Putti
The Glass Galago

And then a fourth story about a werewolf puppy in danger in Vancouver: The Cage


Uprooted by Naomi Novik
I finally started it! Once I started, I found it hard to put down, and liked it a lot (although it gets quite gory in places, and there's a distressingly high body count towards the end) - the terrifyingly creepy Wood, and the friendship between Agnieszka and Kasia both worked well for me.

The "pilot episode" of Bookburners (serialised fiction "created by" Max Gladstone and written by him with some others) which was good enough to get me interested in reading more, though I despair at my to-read pile. 

What I'll read next
Probably the pilot of The Witch Who Came In From The Cold.
