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 didn’t enjoy this as much as the other two I read by the same author. It all seemed a little improbable and the characters veered a bit farther into the romance book category than I can reasonably stand. (June 2008)
None of the other Ibbotsons I’ve read quite stacks up to A Countess Below Stairs for me, but I did enjoy this one quite a bit. It’s hard not to love Harriet. [Nov. 2010]
