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.

Shadowshaper - Daniel José Older

I absolutely loved Shadowshaper–I had been hearing great things about it for months before it came out, and they were all deserved. Sierra’s relationship to her art, to her family and its secrets, to her culture and its joys and sorrows were all wonderful. And Older weaves in so many current issues, in a way that felt pointed but also real and earned.
