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 Strangely beautiful Tale of Miss Percy Parker - Leanna Renee Hieber This was kind of the opposite of Shades of Milk and Honey–the historical details were well done, while the fantasy part and the romance were both a bit eye-roll inducing. I think that Percy as a character needs to feel older than she does, which is partly because she is constantly–and I mean CONSTANTLY–giggling or squealing. [Oct. 2010]
