Howl's Moving Castle - Diana Wynne Jones


If I reviewed all the books I share with my daughter at her bedtime, this blog would be four times as long. But this is (comparatively) fabulous for a children's book, with vibrant, flawed characters and a plot like a crazy puzzle that still doesn't really make sense at the end. I remember enjoying Jones' novels as a kid but now I appreciate the quality of her writing.


  1. She was one of my favourite writers as a kid. I particularly remember being freaked out by The Time of the Ghost. And loved this one. She's soooo much better than She Who Must Not Be Named.... Bx

  2. Yes, I agree. If only I could remember which of her books I liked - I'll just have to go through all of them!
