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.

A Tangled Web - L.M. Montgomery

(reread) Ughhhhh, there’s so much racism. And ableism. And weird romances where we’re supposed to cheer for the characters but I just wanted to yell: GET OUT! I did love Margaret, and Aunt Becky, and dang Montgomery can turn a phrase. But this was not my most successful re-read ever, although the people I was reading it with are wonderful and there were many knives emoji used.
