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.
Quite a few people have been reading this since it was named as a National Book Award Finalist. I really liked it–I thought the language was gorgeous, the world that we’re dropped into was beautiful and beautifully described. I did feel that the ending was perhaps a tad rushed, but overall I can absolutely see why it was named as a finalist.
