Lúthien wearing all three Silmarils in an AU where Angrist wasn’t a piece of junk didn’t break.

Lúthien wearing all three Silmarils in an AU where Angrist wasn’t a piece of junk didn’t break.

I follow some lovely Silmarillion bloggers who are really adamant about Lúthien being taller than Beren ( @squirrelwrangler and @houseofhaleth for instance), so this is for you lot. 
(I tend to picture them as roughly equal in height, but I’ll just pretend Luthien is standing on a step or something here, and we’re all happy, right?)

I’m always surprised by how many people don’t know that Studio Ghibli’s Howl’s Moving Castle is based on a novel by the prolific British fantasy author Diana Wynne Jones.  The novel is significantly different from the film; there are some wonderful surprises in there for you if you’ve only seen the film!

Also, if you can’t get enough of Howl and Sophie, there are two sequels: Castle in the Air and House of Many Ways.  Each has a new set of main characters, but Howl, Sophie, and Calcifer are important supporting characters.  Howl and Sophie’s son also appears in both of the sequels.

Diana Wynne Jones (who sadly passed away recently) had a lively, hilarious writing style.  Her stories are tightly plotted and her world-building is astoundingly creative.  If you check out Howl’s Moving Castle and like her stuff, there’s much more to explore!  Every single one of her books that I have read has been thoroughly enjoyable and engaging.  I very much recommend the Chrestomanci books - these don’t have to be read strictly in any order but Charmed Life and The Lives of Christopher Chant are both good starting points.
