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.

Chaos of Stars

The Chaos of Stars - Kiersten White

This was a really quick, fun read. And the design is absolutely gorgeous, inside and out. However, I really felt that a lot of the worldbuilding aspects didn’t quite make sense, and Isadora was occasionally very inconsistent in terms of what she knew about the outside world. It’s a great popcorn book, and that’s about it.
