Many Comic Cons past, I fell in love with the art of Fez Inkwright (@rosdottir on Twitter), who combines beautiful art with folklore and witchiness, and is also a hugely sweet person. I have several pieces of her art up around my house, and I also bought her self-published book, Folk Magic and Healing: An Unusual History of British Plants. So I was thrilled when the last time I saw her, she told me it had been picked up by a publisher for a swanky expanded, hardback release – and even more thrilled when Liminal 11 offered me the chance to review the new edition!
I’ve never read anything by Frances Hardinge before, though I have friends who love her, so when Deeplight showed up at my door unannounced, I wasn’t sure what to expect.

Goodreads Reading Challenge
I made it! Despite a lacklustre reading month (my worst so far, at only 24 books), I hopped over the finish line of my Goodreads Challenge and have officially read more books than there are days in the year. #Hallowreadathon helped squeeze in three more before the end of the month for a total of 368 books.
