howlsmovingcastleI love stories where magic is involved, like ”Harry Potter series” and  ”Chronicles of Narnia”. For some reason I have been reading a lot of good books lately, & I am happy that I found this book to read.

Howl’s Moving Castle is one of those books, that I wish I would have written it! Sophie Hatter lives with her step mother, step sister and a sister, being eldest sister she thinks that her fortune is not going to be good. She’s a young woman living in a world where fairy tales and magic are a part of everyday life. People are scared of Howl the wizard and witch of Waste. Because Howl eats young girl’s hearts and witch of Waste is dangerous. Due to some unexpected twists Sophie gets under Withe’s spell and she is not young anymore, she is old. Worst part of the spell is that she can’t tell to anyone that she is enchanted. Now Sophie,old and tiered wants to find a place to stay away from everyone, but she ends up getting into Howl’s moving castle. It is wonderful tale of Magic and love.I don’t know how to write more that that.

After reading the book, I watched animated movie by the same name: Howl’s moving castle. Movie was good, but I liked the book more.  You will travel to magic world while reading about  floating castle, talking fires, bouncing scarecrows, and amazing spells.By the way Howl is my favorite character apart from Sophie, oh my god! I like Michael too 🙂  My ratings are 4 out of 5.

Finally I am writing about the last part of the Harry potter series- “Harry potter and Deathly Hallows”. I read it 3 years back. I was so worried about the roumers going on about Harry’s death in this book. I liked the series so much from the begining. I didnt want Harry to die at the end and spoil everything.

This book definately didnt dissapoint me. I liked the book, how it ended almost how I wanted it to end. Fight with Vorldemort is wonderful and as usual with  Hermoine and Ron’s help Harry’s adventure goes on. I was little sad becuase this is the last book and was happy that its a happy ending. Its like bitter sweet 🙂

I highly recommend this book and the whole series for those who haven’t read it. Its a book which will take you to the imaginary world of spells and magic.

No need to tell anyone what this book is about. Its not the time to write review as well. But I dont want to leave this book out of my list. I want to include it in my “books I have read” list.  Actually I was forced to read this book by my best friend. She is a very big fan of Harry Potter by the time I started reading first book she had finished 5th one. One fine day in hostel I started reading, I couldn’t put the book down until I finished. Then I didn’t turn back, I read all the series and I loved it. When I read this book I was 17 but now 24 with more knowledge about books still I am impressed in the same way how I was before.

Harry Potter and Philosopher’s stone is the first book in Harry potter series. Harry is a ten year old boy who is abused by his adopted family, his life is full of sadness until he finds out that he is a wizard.  He joins a school called Hogwarts for magical people and quickly makes friends with Hermione Granger and Ronald Weasley. He learns that  his parents were murdered by a evil wizard Lord  Voldemort who killed himself fighting with Harry’s parents. But he keeps coming back some how. In this story Harry and his friends must stop Voldemort getting the philosophers stone because it gives eternal life.

I liked the idea of game ” Quidditch” which is played on flying broom. And market for wizards called “Diagon Alley ” Some say its children’s book but I feel anyone who likes fantasy and new ideas and imagination will love this book.  I like the idea and characters in this book so I totally enjoyed the book.
