Mourning Loss

I'm sorry to post so soon after my last contest, but I would like to mention that I only just found out that one of my favorite authors, Diana Wynne Jones, has passed away today. Jones has been struggling with cancer for nearly two years. In her, I found laughter, joy, heartache, and quite a bit of frustration from two of my greatest book-friends: Howl & Sophie. I was so looking forward to reading more from her, but at least she has left us such a fabulous legacy.
Thank you, Diana.

  1. Oh, I grieve. Oh, oh, oh.

  2. Oh my gosh. This hasn't been a very good quarter for the book world. I really like her wit and I especially enjoyed The Dark lord of Derkholm and Howl's Moving Castle.

  3. Oh no!!! I had no idea she was struggling like that. Oh goodness how I love her books. How very sad.

  4. First Brian Jacques and now this? I don't think my heart will recover.

  5. Rest in Peace Diana Wynne Jones! You filled me with stories that will stay with me forever!!
