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.

A Knot in the Grain and Other Stories - Robin McKinley re-read, because it was on my bookshelves and I needed something short and fun. I really like several of the stories in this collection; the weakest, for me, is the last, which breaks the fairy-tale setting. It’s not a bad story at all, but in this collection it feels just a little out of place.
