“Discount Armageddon” by Seanan McGuire. The boy gave these to me for my birthday. Or more accurately what he said was, “I really bought these for myself. The gift is you get to read them first.”
“Timeless” by Gail Carriger. Book 5, so I’ve finished this series, something I rarely do. Maybe I should more often, because this had a really satisfying conclusion, and I loved the message about immortality.
“Witches, Midwives, and Nurses: a history of women healers” by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English. One of the things Wind/Water/Salt’s first draft lacked was a reason for the witchhunter to be there in the first place. This helped.
