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.

Have His Carcase - Dorothy L. Sayers My love for Lord Peter exponentially increases after Harriet arrives on the scene. Here we have Peter and Harriet in that uneasy stage of their relationship when he is still asking her to marry him every other page and she is still refusing just as often. It’s a rather serious book, although there are some very funny bits. Also some great quotes. Having read it before, I did feel a bit impatient with some of their deducting skills. But then I also have inside knowledge (and can’t say anything more because of spoilers). [June 2010]
