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 Changeling Sea - Patricia A. McKillip I’ve tried reading The Tower at Stony Wood several times and have never gotten through it. I think I just had the wrong book, because this one was excellent. [Sept. 2008]


The first McKillip book I ever read. I can see why I liked it and kept reading–there’s a lovely iridescence to this one and I really enjoy the way McKillip plays with different fairy tale motifs. Plus, I like the sea. [Jan. 2010]
