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.

Paper Valentine - Brenna Yovanoff I was expecting this to be fairly magic-heavy, and it wasn’t–the only real magical element is Lillian’s ghost. Once I got over this expectation (built up based on Yovanoff’s previous works), I enjoyed it for what it really is: an atmospheric mystery. Hannah is a smart investigator, and I really enjoyed the romance, as well as the family relationships.
