“I've got a hangover"
"No, you hit your head on the floor"
"I can't stay. I've got to rescue that fool Sophie.”

When I was in Istanbul over spring break (yes, that is a thing that I did), I decided it would be an appropriate thing to reread Castle in the Air, given my environment. This of course led through rereading the entire Howl's Moving Castle series in fits and spurts over the last few weeks, as a result of which I am now drowning in a pool of Howl & Sophie feels and have no recourse but to make useless graphics. (See Exhibit A, above.) Maybe one day I'll make an accompanying fanmix. I did find a club version of Sospan Fach on Spotify, which was very interesting to say the least. (This will make absolutely no sense to people who have not read the book. To you, I say, get thee to a bookstore or iBooks or whatever you will and get to it immediately.)

Ahem, I guess I'll need to check if the library has the book because I'd be one of those people who has never read it. Sometimes I wonder if I ever read the same books other people do because more often than not I seem to have no clue what people are talking about.

It's sooo good! I'd really recommend it, especially if you're into clever fantasy. There's also a wonderful Studio Ghibli animated film inspired by it, but I find the book characters so much more engaging.

I've seen the film (okay, parts of it because I am terrible at catching movies on TV and always miss the beginning) and remember it was quite good, so I definitely need to check out the book too. As if I needed more stuff on my to-read list. :D
