    I have read Howl’s Moving Castle. A bit slow at the beginning but it is a lovely read. 😀

    I had no idea Howl’s Moving Castle was originally a book! What a dunce I am. But wow! 🙂

      Diana Wynne Jones is a great Author. I highly recommend her!

      There seems to be some division on whether people like the book or the film better.

      To be honest, I think it’s what people read/saw first that’s their favourite.

        That is SO true and the same could be said for most book to film adaptations (or even film remakes).

        People tend to have the best experience the first time they hear the story (in whatever form) so it must resonate with them more 🙂

        My bf is a huge Studio Ghibli fan. I mean I like the movies (some more than others) but he loves them. This book could be a really excellent Christmas gift! (I just checked…and it’s reasonably priced on Amazon, yay!)

        Ultimately though, the book’s got to ‘technically’ be better, hasn’t it? Controversial!!!!

        I love ghibli too. The first chapter is a sum up, but after that it’s great.

        The darklord of Derkholm by Diana Wynne Jones is a great book too.

        I think they made a graphic novel of the ghibli film spirited away too.

    Thanx for visiting my blog. There are far better Tom Holt books out there than My Hero, try the J W Wells sextet, as defined on his Wikipedia page.

      Yes, I’ve read a few reviews saying that this one wasn’t one of his better ones. I definitely enjoyed it enough to try some more by him.

      Thanks for the tip. I will check them out!

      Never fear! I plan to review it once I’ve read so I’ll be sure to let you know. Finger’s crossed it’s brilliant!

    Back to Diana Wynne Jones – two of her adult books that I LOVE – Deep Secret and A Sudden Wild Magic and as for her children’s books… this VERY grown up child regularly rereads her Chrestomanci novels, which are clear forerunners of the Harry Potter books. I really enjoyed your 2016 reading list and look forward to seeing how you get on:).

      I love all of the books you’ve mentioned, specifically deep secret, although I haven’t read all the chrestomanci novels.

      Sometimes I prefer children’s book to adult books so I can understand rereading them!

      Are there any books you’re reading/looking forward to reading?

      Thanks for commenting!

        I’ve got some lovely ones on my TBR stack right now:). ‘The Philosopher Kings’ by the awesome Jo Walton has just arrived, as has ‘The Golden Son’ by Pierce Brown and I’ve recently got my hands on ‘Daughter of Smoke and Bone’ by Laini Taylor. I’m also going to be diving into the sequel to the wonderful ‘Mars Evacuees’ – a fantastic children’s book that had the grandchildren enthralled and roaring with laughter by Sophia McDougall, called ‘Space Hostages.’
