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.
I’d heard really good things about this book. I did like it lots–certainly more than most dystopias–but I didn’t completely fall in love with it. I will say that I found the arc of the romance more interesting than in a lot of YA these days, and that the alternating narrative structure worked really well. [May 2011]
