There are authors and books that we all have good intentions of reading but sometimes, for reasons completely unknown to us, we never get to them. For me, I’ve always meant to read Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. The book has lingered on my long list of books for, well, let’s be honest, forever. I have no idea why I never picked it up.
Jenny of Jenny’s Books is a huge fan of Jones and is hosting a Diana Wynne Jones Week August 1 – 7, 2010. To participate, one has to read one of Jones’s books and post a review during the week. Jenny has even been nice enough to post lists and descriptions of her books. You can find her lists here and here and here. My only problem, there maybe to many good ones to pick from…
I was going to read Howl’s Moving Castle — and still intend to —- but I have somehow managed to add a few more to the list:
The Dark Lord of Derkholm
Power of Three
A Sudden Wild Magic
A Tough Guide to Fantasyland
Have you read any of her books? If so, any recommendations?
And, Jenny, if you’re out there, any suggestions?
