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.


One-Legged Owl

The Tale of Artemis, the One-Legged Owl

As I have mentioned in previous posts - and talked about at length on Twitter - my owl Artemis has been sick lately. After a couple of weeks filled with worry on my part, and fury from Artemis at having to take medication, this has now resulted in Artemis getting ...

Maskerade by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Maskerade by Terry Pratchett

Here we go with Maskerade by Terry Pratchett. Artemis is home at the moment, but still quite unwell. But don't worry, I'm still working through my backlog of owl photos, so he's not being forced to do any posing. You'll get the whole story as soon as I'm able to ...

Alanna by Tamora Pierce

The Bookish Owl – Alanna by Tamora Pierce

Here's Alanna by Tamora Pierce. Artemis is currently hospitalized with an infected talon, but I got a backlog of these book owl photos and writing blog posts helps distract me from worrying about possibly becoming the owner of a one-legged owl tomorrow (for once I'm not exaggerating - it might ...

Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett

Next up is Lords and Ladies by Terry Pratchett. This Discworld book is about asshole elves and a royal wedding, but I reread it for Granny Weatherwax and Archchancellor Ridcully reminiscing about their past romance (I ship those two so hard), Nanny Ogg being Nanny Ogg, and Magrat suddenly becoming ...

Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban owl

The Bookish Owl – Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling

Enjoy Harry Potter and the Prisoner of Azkaban by J. K. Rowling! This is another Harry Potter book, which means Artemis the owl is not happy. It might have something to do with me once considering naming him 'Pigwidgeon'... Once again, rereading these books as an adult has turned out ...

The Bookish Owl – The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson

We're delving into horror this time with The Haunting of Hill House by Shirley Jackson. I know my last post very specifically didn't feature Artemis, but I do have a lot of book owl photos I need to do something with, so you will still have to put up with ...

Eric by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Eric by Terry Pratchett

I bring you... Eric by Terry Pratchett. That's the title. Just Eric. Surprisingly, it's a book about a boy named Eric. Eric tries to summon demons.

The Bookish Owl – Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling

Time for Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets by J. K. Rowling! I hope you're enjoying the Monday - I'm mostly just running around, trying to prevent my patio furniture from flying away. There's really no other sensible thing to do in this weather than to burrow underneath a ...

Books. books and more books, and this one is called Sourcery by Terry Pratchett. This one is about the wizards of Unseen University gaining waaaay too much power and then just trying to blow each other up. There's also a talking hat bossing people around. 'I think therefore I am ...
