Book Review: Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Book Review: Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Book Reviews | January 9, 2014

I’ve loved the movie version of Howl’s Moving Castle since I first saw it years ago, so I was really happy when Daph suggested this as a book club pick. It’s one of those books that I was meaning to read sometime, but I needed to be reminded and given that extra push, since it is a pretty […]

2013 End of Year Book Survey

2013 End of Year Book Survey

Uncategorized | January 8, 2014

(I’ll have a personal review of 2013 later involving blog […]

A pity, because I still absolutely adore […]

Book Haul #5: The Christmas Edition

Uncategorized | January 4, 2014

It’s been almost a month since the last book haul, but that’s because I went on a book buying ban to prevent myself from buying books that I would possibly be getting for Christmas. It was a good thing, because my shelves are getting overloaded as it is. But so now, of course, I have a huge haul […]

Monthly Wrap-Up: December 2013

Uncategorized | January 1, 2014

December 2013: the holiday season! We’re finally at the end of the year. As could probably be expected, I read a bit less because of the holidays, but I still did quite well, for me, and I managed to get quite a few posts up as well in spite of the pre-holiday busy rush at work. I read […]
