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.
Also finished Sharon Shinn’s Heart of Gold. Again mixed feelings–I like Shinn’s writing a lot, but the plot took forever to get going and I never quite bought all the philosophical ruminations of the characters. In other words, lots of telling not so much showing. Still, I appreciated the nuanced depiction of the different groups and liked the main characters.
