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.

The Girl Who Chased the Moon

The Girl Who Chased the Moon - Sarah Addison Allen

This is the first book by Sarah Addison Allen I’ve read and I found it very lovely. I think it’s really out and out fantasy, just of a quieter kind than perhaps genre readers are used it. (But then I’ve never really understood what the point of the magical realism label is, other than as a way for authors to claim that they’re ‘literary’.) Anyway, I liked it a lot and will definitely be back for more.
