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.
Castle Hangnail needs a new Master, but when Molly (a Wicked Witch) arrives, she’s not quite what any of the minions expect. I loved the fresh, funny story, which also reminded me of classic middle grade books, like Diana Wynne Jones and Terry Pratchett (Vernon notes Eva Ibbotson as an influence too).
