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.

Memory - Lois McMaster Bujold, Geneviève Blattmann Probably my favorite of the most recent batch. Illyan is the victim of sabotage and it’s up to Miles in his newly-fired state to find out how it happened. Have I mentioned that I really like Gregor? Because I do, and he gets a chance to shine in this one. [Nov. 2010]


A re-read. I remembered enjoying this book. I did enjoy it, but it was also sheer torture! Ack! Ouch! Also, I kept expecting Ekaterin to be there. I love her so much, I want to retroactively stick her in all the other books. [June 2011]
