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.


War Crimes Christie Golden Warcraft

The Bookish Owl – War Crimes by Christie Golden

I'm on to read War Crimes by Christie Golden. I'm not exactly sure why I'm on to read War Crimes by Christie Golden, though... The last two books I read by this author made me weep like a little child, and I'm losing street cred. This book follows the trial ...

The Bookish Owl – Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett

Next up is Guards! Guards! by Terry Pratchett. If you have been following this blog, you will probably have noticed that I'm reading all the Discworld books in order. However, I'm also reading them in the lovely hardback Collector's Edition, and the last few books will not be released in ...

Castle in the Air Diana Wynne Jones

The Bookish Owl – Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones

I'm starting on Castle in the Air by Diana Wynne Jones today. This is a companion novel to Howl's Moving Castle, so let's hope it shares its charm and quirkiness. I feel like I should say something more, but this week is kicking my ass and my brain is pretty ...

I Shall Wear Midnight Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett

I'm on to read I Shall Wear Midnight by Terry Pratchett! I have been working hard on my own books for the last couple of weeks, revising like crazy to get the new editions ready for a convention in November, and my brain feels like mush at this point. I can't ...

The Tower of the Swallow Andrzej Sapkowski

The Bookish Owl – The Tower of the Swallow by Andrzej Sapkowski

My 30th book of the year will be The Tower of the Swallow by Andrzej Sapkowski (or 'The Tower of Swallows', depending on the translation). I really hope this 6th book in the Witcher series will be better than the last two. I loved the first books, but the last couple ...

Unseen Academicals Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett

It's time for reading Unseen Academicals by Terry Pratchett! It's been a long time since we got a book about the wizards of Unseen University, so let's see how much mayhem they've been holding back on. Seeing as this book seemingly introduces football to the city of Ankh-Morpork, I can ...

The Bookish Owl – The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman

New book, and it's The Graveyard Book by Neil Gaiman. I have been told I should read this book, so... now I'm reading it. You realize you have been reading too many series when you don't know what to say as soon as you're about to read a book where ...

Making Money Terry Pratchett Collector's Edition

The Bookish Owl – Making Money by Terry Pratchett

Next on the reading list is Making Money by Terry Pratchett. I'm rapidly nearing the end of Discworld, but at least I know I'll have to slow down soon, as the last couple of books won't be released in the Collector's Edition until November. Guess that'll give me an excuse ...

House of Many Ways Diana Wynne Jones

The Bookish Owl – House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones

Yep, new book. It's House of Many Ways by Diana Wynne Jones. I loved the first book in this series, "Howl's Moving Castle", and since a friend gave me all the books for my birthday, I saw no reason not to get started on the sequel. Hopefully it holds up! ...

Wintersmith Terry Pratchett owl

The Bookish Owl – Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett

Though I struggled a bit to get through my last book, I'm finally starting on Wintersmith by Terry Pratchett. I'm looking forward to another Tiffany Aching book, especially because I was dragging my feet with my last read. Discworld is always a good palate cleanser and the Tiffany Aching subseries even ...
