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.

Strong Poison - Dorothy L. Sayers I can’t believe I haven’t written about this one before, but…I haven’t. It’s not my absolute favorite (GAUDY NIGHT FOREVAAAAR!!!!) but I think that Harriet, the character of Harriet, brings so much depth with her when she enters the series. Peter is suddenly a real person, rather than just this invincible detective. And the beginning and ending scenes are incredibly written.
