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.

Eleanor & Park

Eleanor & Park - Rainbow Rowell

A lot of people have been praising this realistic YA, and they’re totally right to do so. The characters are really well drawn, and the writing is the kind of effortless that’s actually very impressive. For me, though, it never tipped over into absolute love, and I still haven’t pinpointed exactly why. (It may not be the book for me and that’s all there is to it; not necessarily any issue on the book’s part.) (It’s not you, it’s me.)(Probably.)
