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.
Extra Yarn is probably my favorite picture book from last year, and I literally screamed with joy when it won the Caldecott Honor. Mac Barnett and Jon Klassen are a wonderful team, and the fairy tale almost-echoes are so wonderful, picked up in Klassen’s use of color.
