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.

Saving Francesca - Melina Marchetta My sister read this one and demanded more Marchetta. I am planning to introduce her to Jellicoe Road very soon. This ranks above Finnikin and below Jellicoe Road (because I love that book with a deep and abiding passion which will be hard to top) for me. I did really like it, but Francesca’s voice never quite achieved that crystal-clarity that Taylor’s did. [May 2010]
