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.

This Is Not a Test

This is Not a Test - Courtney Summers

So I liked the characters in this one, and Summers’ taut, elegaic prose really works well here. But I’m just fundamentally not very interested in zombie books, I guess. I don’t feel the urgency and sense of stakes, and so while the conflict between the students and the exploration of Sloane’s reactions kept me reading, it didn’t ever complete engage me.
