Artemis the Owl

Well, here he is! The reason why several people are stalking me on social media.

Artemis the Burrowing Owl, First of His Name, Bringer of Insomnia and Slightly Injured Fingers…
…referred to simply as “the Beast” when in a rush.

Baptism of Fire Andrzej Sapkowski

The Bookish Owl – Baptism of Fire by Andrzej Sapkowski

It's amazing how rapidly I consume books when I can't use a PC for some time. Fourth book this week is Baptism of Fire by Andrzej Sapkowski, meaning that you'll once again have to listen to me talk about the Witcher. My Witcher craze was dying down a bit, seeing ...

Thud Terry Pratchett Discworld

The Bookish Owl – Thud! by Terry Pratchett

I'm on a roll this week and already reading Thud! by Terry Pratchett. I love this book, if for nothing else, then for the name. Thud! Is it bad that I sort of want to hit someone in the face with it, just to see if that's the sound it'll ...

Norse Mythology Neil Gaiman

The Bookish Owl – Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman

Next up is Norse Mythology by Neil Gaiman. It's exactly what it says on the tin: A book filled with the stories of the Norse gods. Seeing as I'm Scandinavian, these are stories I was told in school, but it's nice revisiting them. I'll never really get how Harald Bluetooth ...

Going Postal Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Going Postal by Terry Pratchett

I'm already well into Going Postal by Terry Pratchett, so it's about time you're getting your owl/book photo. This Discworld book is the first with the conman by the charming name of Moist von Lipwig. I haven't quite made up my mind about dear Moist yet, but any book about ...

Howl's Moving Castle Diana Wynne Jones Owl

The Bookish Owl – Howl’s Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones

Next book on my reading list is Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones. I saw the animated movie many, many years ago, which means I have forgotten most of it and I think my friend Line was getting fed up with me almost, but not quite, getting her references ...

A Hat Full of Sky Terry Pratchett owl

The Bookish Owl – A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett

I just started reading A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett! I'm trying to consume as many books as possible before my LASIK surgery on Monday goes horribly wrong and I go blind. Just kidding... It'll be fine. ...Probably. But it is a fact that I'm going to be ...

Time of Contempts Andrzej Sapkowski Owl

The Bookish Owl – Time of Contempt by Andrzej Sapkowski

It's been at least two full weeks since I last talked about Witcher, so it's a good thing that I'm now reading Time of Contempt by Andrzej Sapkowski! Seeing as 'contempt' is in the title, it's obviously the lovely Yennefer adorning the cover. Meaning Artemis really had to up his ...

Monstrous Regiment Terry Pratchett Owl

The Bookish Owl – Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett

I have been neglecting my reading (and owl photos) this month, but I'm finally back and reading Monstrous Regiment by Terry Pratchett. I don't have to rave about my love for Discworld, right? You're all caught up on that. (If you're not, just go to the search bar at bottom ...

Illidan William King Warcraft Owl

The Bookish Owl – Illidan by William King

Time for a new book. This time it's Illidan by William King. Yep, I'm taking a short break from my Witcher craze to read a World of Warcraft tie-in novel. After all, WoW was my first gaming obsession and I'm still not through with reading all the books I have ...

The Wee Free Men Terry Pratchett owl

The Bookish Owl – The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett

I'm reading The Wee Free Men by Terry Pratchett: Which means, you guessed it, we're back on the Discworld! This is the first book in the Tiffany Aching series, so I'm looking forward to getting to know a new Discworld protagonist (and hopefully meet some old friends). I have been ...
