Just finished Perchance to Dream by lisamantchev. This is the sequel to Eyes Like Stars, where Beatrice and the others have escaped the theater and are searching for Nate, who has been taken away by the Sea Goddess. Beatrice still has the ability to shift reality by rewriting it, and the trick is for her to do it without getting them all killed. If you're looking for original fantasy YA with a strong female protagonist, this is perfect.

I've just started Boneshaker by Cherie Priest, and am really enjoying it so far. And speaking of awesome airships done right, she has a related novella coming out with a kick-ass air-pirate cover.
