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 Warrior's Apprentice - Lois McMaster Bujold The Vorkosigan books are, as I’ve documented quite well on this blog, my major literary find of the moment. The folks over on Sounis kept talking about them so I finally read the first one and fell in love instantly. While I definitely have favorites among the books, the whole series is marvellous and I’m creeping up on the Cryoburn waitlist. ANYWAY! Young Miles is the first book where we really see Miles as a character in his own right, which means it has an important place in the series and in my heart. Because Aral is great in the first two books, but MILES! Miles is awesome. [2010 in books]
