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.

Every Heart a Doorway - Seanan McGuire

I absolutely loved 9/10ths of this book–it’s slight but packs a lot in, and is probably my favorite thing I’ve read by McGuire so far. (I mean, if Feed had not been followed by its sequels, that would be my favorite.) But I wasn’t–expecting? hoping for?–the ending that we got, and I think the slightness of the book worked against it in that regard. Overall, however: YAY.
