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.

Clockwork Angel - Cassandra Clare I've enjoyed the Shadowhunter books, but this one was just a delight to read! Somehow I wasn't bothered at all by the time period--I think this is because the Shadowhunter culture is so distinct from the rest of society. I really liked Tess and Will and Jem. Unusually for me, I didn't have a strong opinion on who is right for Tessa. It was fun to see Magnus Bane in an earlier incarnation and to come across a lot of familiar family names. Can't wait for the next one! [Feb. 2011]
