Friday Finds Part II On Saturday! :)

I couldn't help myself, I wanted to share these finds with you all too!

Enchanted Glass by Diana Wynne Jones
Genre: Young Adult Fiction
Release Date: April 6, 2010
Publisher: Greenwillow Books
Pages: 304

Summary: When the magician Jocelyn Brandon Hope died he bequeathed Melstone House to his grandson Andrew. He also left his ‘field of care’: an area of strangeness surrounding the land around the house, whose boundary Andrew must walk in order to preserve its power. Andrew had always loved the house, but he finds owning it a lot more complicated, aside from all the magic. There is Mrs Stock, the tyrannical housekeeper who won’t let him move the furniture and punishes him with her terrible cooking. Just as bad is the obsessive gardener who will only grow giant inedible vegetables. To add to his troubles, twelve year old orphan Aidan Cain suddenly arrives on the doorstep begging protection from magical stalkers, and Andrew’s sinister rich neighbour, Mr Brown, begins to encroach on the ‘field of care’. The one compensation is the gardener’s beautiful niece, Stashe. Things become stranger and stranger until all is made clear with the help of the enchanted glass itself.

I'm particularly interested in Enchanted Glass and Half World. For the former because the cover is beautiful and Japanese culture is fascinating for me for the latter.

Great finds! :)
