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.

Deep Secret - Diana Wynne Jones A comfort re-read. I do love this book! However, I was startled to realize that I had bought the young reader’s edition, which has some of the slightly more dubious language edited out (I didn’t think any of it was that bad). Oh well.


It’s hard to believe now that it’s just been a year since I first read this book. Deep Secret has crept its way into my heart, where it will hopefully remain forever. This is a little more adult, complex, and deep than most of her other books, but it is just as wonderful. There are lovely bits of humor and lovely characters. (Jan. 2010)
