WARNING: This is my current favorite book of the year, so proceed with caution!
Sophie is an amazing character: strong, resourceful, determined, loyal. Howl, on the other hand, can be said to be the exact opposite, but just as amazing. Combine these two characters with a moving castle with doors that open to a multitude of worlds, and you get a story with unimaginable and unending possibilities ... and that is just where Diana Wynne Jones takes us.
I had no idea that when I received this book in the mail as a giveaway from Kristen of We Be Reading that I would be holding one of my all-time favorite books. It was a book that landed in my lap at just the right time -- for DWJ March as well as right before a move that was causing me some anxiety. Howl and Sophie helped to put my mind at ease, and I wrote all about it over on Kristen's blog in honor of DWJ March! I owe Kristen a HUGE THANK YOU! If you have not yet met Howl and Sophie, go do it. You can thank me later!
