Hey y’all! I realize that I have already done a book review this week, but hey, I read a lot of good books! I can’t help that. It is part of my duty as a book worm.
Howl’s Moving Castle was a awesome book, that I loved. There was nothing amazing and deep about it, but it was funny and I loved it.
Even if you don’t click ‘continue reading’ to learn more about this book, I still must say GO READ IT!!! I feel like smiling just by thinking about the book. 🙂

Sophie has the great misfortune of being the eldest of three daughters, destined to fail miserably should she ever leave home to seek her fate. But when she unwittingly attracts the ire of the Witch of the Waste, Sophie finds herself under a horrid spell that transforms her into an old lady. Her only chance at breaking it lies in the ever-moving castle in the hills: the Wizard Howl’s castle. To untangle the enchantment, Sophie must handle the heartless Howl, strike a bargain with a fire demon, and meet the Witch of the Waste head-on. Along the way, she discovers that there’s far more to Howl—and herself—than first meets the eye.

Now I will admit that I was not that interested in this book, due to the book cover. It doesn’t really intrigue me that much. I thought it was going to be a very boring book, and the fact that the MC was an old woman. But I was prepared to read it because Beck had read it and she loved it. (Not that I normally like the books Beck does)
This book was not anything deep, it was just a fun MG book. I loved the characters, at lest the ones that were the ‘good guys’. 😉 Sophia and the fire demon are probably my favorites.
Sophia was awesome! She got away with so many things as an old women, in fact I think she rather liked being an old woman. And the things she did to the wizard and got away with was hilarious. This book was so funny, but not in the sense that you are laughing non-stop out loud.
Howl was awesome too, and I am tempted to put up there with my favorite characters as well. He was funny, in his own special way. He acted like he hated everyone but in reality he was very kind and cared a lot for those around him. He was always going out of his way to help someone out, but in a way that know one realized he had.
There is just one thing that I wished had been different in this book, and that was this, I wish we had figured out how Howl killed the witch. All we knew was that he had killed her.
All together this is a great book and I think you should all read this no matter how ‘old’ you are. 🙂 For those of you who might not read this book because there is a witch and wizard in here… ‘Witch’ and ‘Wizard’ are really just titles, I guess, given to two of the characters in the book who happen to be able to preform magic. There is no dark or black magic in this book.
P.S I am rather sorry that the imgs in my book reviews are not showing up. I have no idea why they don’t show up, but I am going to try and fix that when I get a chance! 🙂
