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.

Keturah And Lord Death - Martine Leavitt This is a lovely little book. Very quiet and very haunting. I am resolved to post a longer review later, so that’s all I’ll say for now. (March 2008)


I must be somewhat morbid, because I like books with Death as a character in them. I read this some time ago and it was just as good the second time around. Highly recommended. [Aug. 2008]


Another one I bought–I really like this book a lot. It sounds vaguely morbid, but in the end I think it comes across as sweet. [Sept. 2010]
