Read, and loved, Becky Chambers' A Closed and Common Orbit, the semi-sequel to The Long Way to a Small, Angry Planet.
Almost no plot, but a very well-done science fiction story about an AI placed in a humanoid body, and a young clone who escapes from a labour camp.
I also listened to the audiobook of Philip Pullman's Northern Lights, the first His Dark Materials book. Even darker than I remember, though some of the stuff is glossed over a bit too quickly, especially Roger's death at the end, and the disappearance of the Gyptians halfway through the book..
I remember very little of the sequels from when I read them as a child, so I'm looking forward to getting stuck in to them.
