Goodreads Monday is a weekly meme hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners where you choose a random book from your Goodreads TBR to talk about. I’ve seen this meme a lot recently, so I decided to give it a go!

The Book:

Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

HMC

Synopsis:

‘In the land of Ingary, where seven league boots and cloaks of invisibility do exist, Sophie Hatter catches the unwelcome attention of the Witch of the Waste and is put under a spell.’

Deciding she has nothing more to lose she makes her way to the moving castle that hovers on the hills above Market Chipping. But the castle belongs to the dreaded Wizard Howl whose appetite, they say, is satisfied only by the souls of young girls… There she meets Michael, Howl’s apprentice, and Calcifer the Fire Demon, with whom she agrees a pact.

But Sophie isn’t the only one under a curse – her entanglements with Calcifer, Howl, and Michael, and her quest to break her curse is both gripping – and ‘howlingly’ funny!

Why I want to read it:

I adore the Howl’s Moving Castle movie, but I’m ashamed to say that I didn’t actually know it was a book until a few months ago, so this is a fairly recent addition to my tbr! The Goodreads reviews are slightly mixed, but I’m excited to read it. I’m hoping to get to it in October!

Have you read this? What did you think? Let me know in the comments!
