Castle in the Air
Castle in the Air | Diana Wynne Jones
A magical Arabian Nights tale from the captivating creator of fantasy, Diana Wynne Jones. The dazzling sequel to Howls Moving Castle, now a major animated film. Far to the south in the Land of Ingary, lives a young carpet merchant called Abdullah. In his dreams, he is the long-lost son of a great prince. This dream is a complete castle in the air... or is it? Abdullahs day-dreams suddenly start to come true when he meets the exquisite Flower-in-the-Night, daughter of the ferocious Sultan of Zanzib. Fate has destined them for each other, but a bad-tempered genie, a hideous djinn, and various villanous bandits have their own ideas. When Flower-in-the-Night is carried off, Abdullah is determined to rescue her if he can find her.

“Heaven preserve me,” the genie said disgustedly. “the young man is a coffee shop lawyer.” 🤣

Not nearly as much fun as Howl‘s Moving Castle. Characters and plot line kind of flat.

This one didn't keep me nearly as interested as Howl's Moving Castle.

My least favorite of the Howl‘s Moving Castle series. It took me forever to get through the book. It was interesting because it was kind of an Aladdin spin-off, but it didn‘t hold my interest.

Finished listening to this which is the second of the ‘Howl‘s Moving Castle‘ books. I enjoyed it. It was a good light listen and the magic and fairytale aspects are great for just listening and drifting off. I didn‘t love the narration, but was able to deal with it.

Cheating with German for #titlesstartingwithXYZ 😁
Plus, they have so much fun on their covers!
(Yes, that is a magical tomato fight on the Magicians of Caprona cover 😂)
Castle in the Air (the Prinzessinnen cover above) is a somewhat sequel to Howl's Moving Castle - and while I have #reread Howl several times, I need to give Castle another look.
Onto the #TBReR stack!

Today's #bookmail was inspired by @Foragingfantasy when we previously chatted about alternate covers for this series. I decided I needed to complete the set with this UK edition of Castle in the Air.
Now time for a #reread!

brilliantglow I love these editions so much, I just wish they were available in hard cover. 3y
TheLondonBookworm So much love for these books and these editions which I too own :) 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @brilliantglow Agreed! I wish they were hardcover too 📚 3y
Foragingfantasy You're trying to make me jealous aren't you. 😜😂 they are beautiful!!! Enjoy your reread!!! 3y

I have a bad habit of buying books by my favorite authors in languages I am NOT able to read simply for the covers.
The germans always get me with the wrap-around covers with a kitty on the back 😽
#foreigneditions #ofcourseicannotreadit #notinenglish

JustTrish Nice! 3y
pppooraikul A bad habit indeed 😂 But the beautiful covers are so worth it! 😉😍 3y
Foragingfantasy Oh that cover is fantastic!!! I have been searching for House of many Ways in a matching cover to the first two and I don't think they released it to match. I think they must have made a cover change when they released it. I'm soooo sad. 3y
elkeo_TheBookDragon @Foragingfantasy Which House of Many Ways cover are you looking for? 3y
Foragingfantasy @elkeo I posted a pic of the editions I have, I think they made a cover change when they released it. 3y

Rereading ANY Diana Wynne Jones is a treat, and I ALWAYS find something new that I never seemed to have noticed before. And this one proves to be the same, as well as hilarious, with so many quotable lines, and still manages to be as enchanting as the first time I read it.

I skipped this one... So now I'm making it up. 😍 this is the only one in the series I own. I need the others, but I don't like the cover.
