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 Little White Horse - Elizabeth Goudge I’m a huge Goudge fan, but hadn’t actually read this one before. It’s odd because it’s clearly fantasy, and yet it’s also so very clearly Goudge–her voice, her descriptions, her concerns. I don’t think it’ll ever be my favorite of her younger books (Smoky House, for the record) but I did enjoy it a lot. [Apr. 2011]
