On the subject of books and procrastination

I just finished Dogsbody by Diana Wynne Jones today. I liked it. Ms. Jones had a way with fantasy and her stories are so unique! Who would have thought to write a book in the point of view of a star banished to live like a dog, thus in the point of view of a dog? 269 more words

The Power of Three by Diana Wynne Jones

I never did grow up on stories of fairy mounds, or really, most of the myths I’m familiar with now. As a child I knew city streets and fields and forests, with bunian and djinns and guardian spirits, but I knew nothing of moors. 1,152 more words

Gettin' Hooked

It’s been an addiction for the last two weeks. I jones, I worry, I debate in my head, I bargain for time. It’s Dianne Wynne Jones. 107 more words

Dogsbody by Diana Wynne Jones

I think that Dogsbody, along with The Time of the Ghost and A Tale of Time City, would probably rank among my least favourite Diana Wynne Jones titles. 841 more words

Saturday Book Review - 'Howl's Moving Castle'

There’s a reason I’m choosing to review Diana Wynne Jones’ Howl’s Moving Castle on this particular day. It has nothing to do with a new release, or a new edition, or anything like that – this book was first published in the mid 1980s, and it has since been made into an animé and all manner of fan-art and such – but because I’m meeting someone very important later who admitted to me a few weeks ago that they had never read it. 892 more words

A Matter of Perspective III

First, I need to give credit for the photo. That is not me, nor did I take that shot. I wish I had; it’s an awesome shot. 854 more words
