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.

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms - N.K. Jemisin I had extremely mixed feelings here. On the one hand, I loved the world and the images–goodness, Jemisin has a gift for description. On the other hand, I was never wild about the romance and in fact I’ve noticed that there’s a certain type of romance which I’m fairly allergic to and which this definitely falls into. However, the sequel sounds really interesting. [June 2011]
