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.

To Rule the Waves: How the British Navy Shaped the Modern World - Arthur Herman A history of the British navy. Fascinating stories, including a lot details I didn’t know about, and several moments where a larger portion of history suddenly made more sense. Somewhat marred by a lack of nuance in his argument, but still a great read for anyone interested in history, especially nautical history. [Mar. 2011]
