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 Ear, the Eye, and the Arm - Nancy Farmer I know I’ve been seeing Farmer’s books around since middle school, but I never read any of them. When I started this one, I realized my mistake. Set in a futuristic Africa, the story manages to be chilling, beautiful, and a rollicking good adventure story all at the same time. [2010 in books]
