My Friday 56 this week is from the book I am currently reading. A childhood favourite, Howl’s Moving Castle has so much character and imagination that any reader will enjoy it – no matter their age!

“I don’t understand,” Sophie told the human skull. Then, because the fire looked almost out, she went and put on a couple of logs and raked away some of the ash.

Green Flames climbed between the logs, small and curly, and shot up into a long blue face with flaming green hair. “Good morning,” said the fire demon. “Don’t forget we have a bargain.”

  1. I just read and reviewed this one! I’ve been on a massive ‘Howl’s Moving Castle’ journey this last month. I think by now I’ve seen the movie at least 6 times and read the book! Although they’re very different, do you enjoy both the film and the book or do you have a favourite? Also, I love Calcifer, he’s such a sweetheart deep down! Thanks for sharing 🙂 I hope you have a great weekend!

    • I enjoy both, but think I prefer the book simply because I was so young when I read it (about 7, I think) and I didn’t see the film until I was 26! Happy weekend 🙂

  2. Following from The Friday 56.

    Y’know, Hamlet talked to a skull too; granted, it did not have a resident fire demon, but it didn’t turn out to well for him. TBR’d on GoodReads.
