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.
I was looking for something light to read on a Saturday night, and this fit the bill. I was struck, since I haven't read this in awhile, by how sympathetically I remembered Claudia. Really, she's a bit awful, but I was also the oldest and knew the injustice of having to wash the dishes and sweep the floor on the same night. (Dec 2011)
