Read in May, 2009

This was a very fun, charming story. It really seems so simply written, yet read more than one line and you are a part of the action, not just watching it.

I really enjoyed Sophie, and feel like she is very human -- prone to snap judgments and bad decisions and she tends to underestimate herself. Howl is a very fun character, a bit of a "player" until his heart is stolen (literally).

I would like to check out the other books in the series, but this one does stand alone quite nicely. :)

Fiona Ooooh you didn't say you were gonna read this.

Tell me immediately if you love it.... I mean WHEN you love it. :) It is a lovely light book though and I've read it loads of times. It always has the same effect on me.

Becky I didn't know I was going to read it! I did a search of my shelf for the lightest looking fun book I could find and this was it. I feel so emotionally drained after reading A Thousand Splendid Suns that I have to read something light or I may do something drastic! LOL

Allison (The Allure of Books) Are you loving it?!?

Fiona Don't leave us in suspense!
