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.

Lament: The Faerie Queen's Deception - Maggie Stiefvater I’ve been hearing good things about this series for awhile and I finally decided to see what it’s all about. At first I was rolling my eyes a bit at some of the description and the quickness with which certain relationships developed. But then I got sucked into the story and fell in love. Wow. I think one of the things I liked most about it was the fact that Deirdre actually felt like a real person with real interests. I believed in her as a harp player, I believed in her as someone who would make the choices she did. And what’s up with her aunt? I want to know! [Mar. 2010]
