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.

The Mostly True Adventures of Homer P. Figg - Rodman Philbrick Yay! I always love a good historical fiction and this fit the bill exactly. I think girls would like it–I know I would have–but it should also appeal to boys, especially around the middle school age. I loaned it to my brother to read (he’s 14 almost 15) but haven’t heard how he liked it yet. Lots of fun, but it also has a good heart. [Mar. 2011]
