By Singing Light

Pretty much everything here originally appeared at my actual blog: By Singing Light. I particularly focus on upper middle-grade and young adult books. I also enjoy adult genre books, especially speculative fiction.

The Suffragette Scandal by Courtney Milan

The Suffragette Scandal - Courtney Milan

Last in the Brothers Sinister series. I had to mention this one because it’s so good, even though I don’t normally review romance books here. I loved the two main characters, and I loved the way they supported each other. Milan is good at writing characters and plots where the obstacles that have to be overcome are realistic and understandable (not much “You don’t understand my paaaiiiin”). I also loved the sense of family, and the insights we got into other characters from the series. This was a deeply satisfying book, and one of Milan’s best.
