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.


The Shepherd's Crown by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – The Shepherd’s Crown by Terry Pratchett

Second on this year's reading list was The Shepherd's Crown by Terry Pratchett. I'm even more behind on these posts than I was the last time I posted, so this is another book I have already read. It's the last, not only of the Tiffany Aching books, but of the ...

Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

The Bookish Owl – Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo

First book of the year is Ruin and Rising by Leigh Bardugo. The beginning of 2020 has not been kind to me, which means I'm already sooo behind on my owl posts. I'm almost done reading my fourth book, so go figure. But hey, at least I'm getting a lot ...

My Year in Books (and Owls) 2019

Now that 2019 is almost over, I thought I would look back at the 53 books I read this year. This was the first time I tried keeping track of the books I read. I also vowed to read mainly short books - as opposed to the giant epic fantasy novels ...

Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Hogfather by Terry Pratchett

In case you have somehow missed all the pop songs now featuring jingle bells and the excessive advertising for shit you don't need - it's Chriiiiistmas and that means it's time to (re)read Hogfather by Terry Pratchett! I'm by no means a Christmassy person - I can't keep up cheer ...

Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski

The Bookish Owl – Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski

I'm currently reading Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski. Why am I currently reading Season of Storms by Andrzej Sapkowski, you ask? Because the entire first season of the new The Witcher show will be released on Netflix on Friday! That's more important than Christmas, you guys, and I need ...

Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett

Toot, toot! Time for Raising Steam by Terry Pratchett. This is the last Discworld book about Moist von Lipwig, and I'm looking forward to seeing how he'll con everyone this time around. I'm also looking forward to seeing how Lord Vetinari will - very subtly - threaten to have him ...

The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman

The Bookish Owl – The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman

I'm behind on these posts, but here you have The Burning Page by Genevieve Cogman! I've already finished this book, but I have been too sick to do the owl-wrangling required for pictures, so you're getting the post retroactively. Hopefully 'retroactively' is a proper word and not just my tired ...

Snuff by Terry Pratchett Discworld

The Bookish Owl – Snuff by Terry Pratchett

I will finally be reading Snuff by Terry Pratchett! I have waited soooo long to read the last few Discworld books, because I wanted them in the new Collector's Edition, and now they're finally here! And they're pretty, and shiny - and now I need to come up with an ...

Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

The Bookish Owl – Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo

Today's book post is about Siege and Storm by Leigh Bardugo. I'm hoping this book is as good as the first one in the trilogy (which I only picked up out of desperation when I ran out of books on vacation), because I devoured that one in a day. I'm ...

Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett

This is not going to make sense to non-Discworld fans, but I'm reading Reaper Man by Terry Pratchett now because I need to get ready for Christmas. Obviously I need to do my reread of 'Hogfather' in December and the last couple of Discworld books I have yet to read ...
