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.

Un Lun Dun - China Miéville I had heard about Mieville from the ladies at The Black Letters and decided to pick this one up when I saw it at the library. It’s a beautifully written and haunting story, with lovely bits of illustrations. I really appreciated the different take Mieville did on the idea of the “Chosen One”. Very nice (although I probably would have been a bit scared when I was younger–good scared, but scared nonetheless).
