House of Many Ways (Howl’s Moving Castle #3)  by Diana Wynne Jones


Review: After reading the first two books in this  series, I didn’t even try to think about what this book may have in store for me. I just knew I would be surprised and laughing my butt off at the end.

And I was. So hard.

Because when you start off reading this book, you’re like ok so where in the world is this going. Then toward the middle you’re then like OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOMYGOSH!!!!!

Yup. Because that’s Howl and Sophie for you. But mostly Howl.

I think this might have been my favorite of the series so far. But then again, I have loved and still love all of Sophie and Howls parts in the three books. They are the best parts of the books, because 1. they are causing trouble. 2. its mostly Howl who is doing it. 3. They are always there when you find out what the heck is going on in the story.

Man, just thinking of it makes me want to re-read the whole series over again. just so it can put that big smile on my face again.

404 pages. Paperback.

5 out of 5 stars.

Young Adult. Adventure. Magic. Fantasy. Fiction. Romance.

Published by Greenwillow Books.
