Diana Wynne Jones' Howl's Moving Castle
Diana Wynne Jones died this morning of lung cancer, which pretty much sucks, since she's one of my favorite authors. And I didn't even discover her till it was announced that Miyazaki was making a movie of this book! Which, frankly, never came close to being as awesome as this story is, because it is super awesome. This was my 6th time reading it and it's just as good as the first time. Now I'm off to read the sequels.
