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 Knife of Never Letting Go - Patrick Ness Packed full of violence, this is certainly not a book for everyone. But it’s amazingly written. While it is young adult and follows two young protagonists, I think that the emotional journey they go on is one that adults could relate to as well (enjoy is another matter). The premise is darkly fascinating and the book ends on a terrible cliff-hanger which left me impatient to read the second book.
