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.


Coraline Neil Gaiman Owl

The Bookish Owl – Coraline by Neil Gaiman

I just started reading Coraline by Neil Gaiman. It's technically a children's book, but I've heard so many people talking about it, so I gave it a shot anyway. Besides, after reading the first 5 chapters, I think I can safely say that those button-eyed people would have scared the ...

Night Watch Terry Pratchett Owl

The Bookish Owl – Night Watch by Terry Pratchett

Phew, been a few weeks since I did one of these, huh? It's been a little too busy for me to get some proper reading done. But now things are calming down, so it's time for me to get back to tackling my to-read pile! Right now I'm reading Night ...

Blood of Elves Andrzej Sapkowski owl

The Bookish Owl – Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski

By the time this post goes live, I will have arrived at Moszna Castle in Poland after having been reading Blood of Elves by Andrzej Sapkowski on the plane (when not doing Sudokus...). But I didn't want you to miss out on your grumpy owl photo, so I cheated and ...

The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents Terry Pratchett Owl

The Bookish Owl – The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett

Yep. I'm reading a book about a talking cat. Nothing wrong with that, per se, but I went straight from a rather gritty Witcher novel to this, so I'm getting a bit of literary whiplash. The book in question is The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Pratchett, the ...

Sword of Destiny Andrzej Sapkowski owl

The Bookish Owl – Sword of Destiny by Andrzej Sapkowski

Since I'll be going to Poland next week to attend Witcher School, I thought it only fitting that I read the second book in Andrzej Sapkowski's Witcher series, Sword of Destiny. (Book 3, 4 and 5 have already been packed for the flight) It's always good to read up on ...

The Last Hero Terry Pratchett owl

The Bookish Owl – The Last Hero by Terry Pratchett

This one barely qualifies as a novel, considering it's about 170 pages and every page is illustrated, but since it's about Cohen the Barbarian and his quest to blow up the gods of the Discworld, I'm sure I'm in for a ride with The Last Hero by Terry Pratchett (and ...

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms George R. R. Martin

The Bookish Owl – A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin

I have been putting off reading this book for a long time, but now it's time for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (collection of the Tales of Dunk and Egg novellas) by George R. R. Martin. Why have I been putting it off, you might ask? After all, "A Song ...

Thief of Time Terry Pratchett Owl

The Bookish Owl – Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett

I started reading Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett on Friday, didn't get around to taking a picture until today, and now... I'm sort of done with the book already. "Thief of Time" is meant to be taken literally, apparently, because I don't usually have 400+ pages disappearing on me ...

Book Owl

Reading to My Owl

The title is not a metaphor. That is really what I've been doing lately. ...No, I'm not THAT lonely. There's a perfectly sensible explanation. You see, even though I'm fluent in English and can write entire books, my English pronounciation is horrible. I might read, write and watch TV almost ...

Mogworld Yahtzee Croshaw Owl

The Bookish Owl – Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw

I'm burning through books much faster than usual, so I'm kind of running low on fantasy books that aren't the size of bricks (and aren't written by Terry Pratchett). Luckily, I have books worthy of a second reading! I'm currently rereading Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw. (I looked up the author ...
