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.

The Humming Room - Ellen Potter I really liked this retelling/homage to The Secret Garden. It does rely pretty heavily on the source material, not only for plot, but almost for the emotions. Which means that I found myself wondering how well it would work for someone who hasn’t read Secret Garden. I don’t think it really would. Or are we assuming that anyone who likes Ellen Potter has read SG? It may be a pretty safe bet. Regardless, if you do like Secret Garden, I suggest you try this one out.
