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.

Black Hole Sun - David Macinnis Gill Set on a future Mars, this is a nice adventure story. I didn’t ever quite tip over into love, but I also read it in bits and pieces. The world is a really interesting one and I believe there’ll be more to the story, which I would definitely read. I think my hesitation here was largely not fully connecting to the characters, and if the second book can make them and their relationships a little more real, I think I’d really love it. [Apr. 2011]
