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.

Breadcrumbs - Anne Ursu, Erin Mcguire I’d read conflicting reviews about this one, so I wasn’t sure how much I would like it. I found myself pleasantly surprised–there were some moments that didn’t work for me, but overall I really enjoyed it! I especially liked the fact that Ursu takes the inevitable Narnia comparison and explicitly addresses it in a way that makes her Snow Queen creepier. The only thing that really bothered me was the fact that Hazel, who knows her fairy tales, had apparently never heard of Hans Christian Andersen? [Jan 2011]
