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.
I included this book on this list for somewhat different reasons than most of them. I didn’t whole-heartedly love it, but it remained with me. I’ve read some raving reviews and some highly critical reviews. I fall somewhere in the middle. Nonetheless, I can’t quite get it out of my head. (Jan. 2010)
