How to Speak Dragonese by Cressida Cowell
Rate this book
Clear rating
Bought this many years ago, long before the How To Train Your Dragon-films came out. Never got the connection until I recognized the author's name in the credits of the film. Having re-read it now I realise that there aren't many things that are simi ...more

Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones
Rate this book
Clear rating
I first saw Howl's Moving Castle as the animated movie from Studio Ghibli, and it is one of my favourites. Naturally, that makes it difficult for me to write a proper, unbiased review of the book. I did like the book, though I think that I still pref ...more

The Mystery of Mercy Close by Marian Keyes
Rate this book
Clear rating
A classic Marian Keyes, but a bit better than the ones I read years ago, mostly due to the fact that it is a mystery novel and that the main character Helen struggles with depression, not with an unrequited love or a cheating husband .

And Another Thing... by Eoin Colfer
Rate this book
Clear rating
Being a fan of both Eoin Colfer and the Hitchhiker series it was pretty much going to be a win. I haven't read the Hitchiker in many years, and I am not sure that was a good or a bad thing. For sure, it kept me from scrutinizing every word and senten ...more
