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.

Ivy's Ever After - Dawn Lairamore To be honest, I didn’t enjoy this one very much. Ivy’s character grated on my nerves a bit and I found myself comparing it to Patricia Wrede, who I prefer by far. I suspect that a large part of this is my age–12-year-old me probably would have at least liked it. But for now-me, it felt unsatisfying. [Sept. 2010]
