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.

Murder Is Bad Manners: A Wells and Wong Mystery - Robin Stevens

The first in a British series, set in a boarding school in the 1930s. Best friends Daisy Wells and Hazel Wong have been solving small mysteries, but when a teacher is murdered, it’s the first real test of their detective abilities. I loved this book: I loved the setting, I loved Hazel’s voice, I loved the way her feelings & worries about being a Chinese girl in the middle of a British boarding school were woven into the story. I may end up buying the second book from the UK because I’m impatient and don’t want to wait for it to come over here.
