Just wondering who else has read Diana Wynne Jones and is a fan? She is one of my favorite authors. If you've read books by her, what are some of your favorites?

I've read the Chrestomanci books which were interesting and enjoyable.

I've read two of them. Really enjoyed them. I should try to read another one this year.

Diana Wynne Jones is my favourite author - I would thoroughly recommend Howl's Moving Castle, the Dalemark Quartet and her "adult" books Deep Secret and Year of the Griffin

I thought it would be interesting to add for Tolkien fans, that when Diana was studying English at St. Anne's College she attended lectures by Tolkien.

She's a favorite of mine too. Howl's Moving Castle was the first book I read by her and I became a fan after reading it.
