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 Serpent Garden

The Serpent Garden: A Novel - Judith Merkle Riley

I love Judith Merkle Riley’s books so much. I said on Twitter that she feels like an antidote to the kind of hyper-gritty book that Game of Thrones often represents. The time period is not a gentle one, but the relationships between people and the real culture and support between women all combine to make this a lovely & satisfying book. (Plus I really enjoyed the main character.)
