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.


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 ...

The Masked City Genevieve Cogman

The Bookish Owl – The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman

New book and it's The Masked City by Genevieve Cogman. That's it. That's all you get. It's Monday, and it's raining, and my head feels like it's full of rocks, so I'm gonna need you all to work with me and pretend I just did a few cheery paragraphs about ...

Witches Abroad Terry Pratchett Owl

The Bookish Owl – Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett

It's been a while, but I'm finally starting on a new book. And since Halloween is right around the corner, I'm going with Witches Abroad by Terry Pratchett. The last few Discworld books will be released in this edition on the 14th of November, so I'll soon be taking a ...

The Lady of the Lake Andrzej Sapkowski

The Bookish Owl – The Lady of the Lake by Andrzej Sapkowski

So, I'll be starting on The Lady of the Lake by Andrzej Sapkowski. This is, of course, because I will be leaving for Poland tomorrow where I'll be attending my second round of Witcher School, and the 7th book in the Witcher series seems like the ideal entertainment for my ...

Wyrd Sisters Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett

New book, and it's Wyrd Sisters by Terry Pratchett. I ran out of City Watch books, so my Discworld reread is moving to the Witches subseries now. I remember not liking this book as much as the other Discworld books when I first read it, but I think it might ...

We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

The Bookish Owl – We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal

This time it's We Hunt the Flame by Hafsah Faizal! I have been looking forward to this post, simply because the cover of this book is so gorgeous. I actually started following the author on Twitter long before the book was even released, because I had seen people sharing the ...

Jingo Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Jingo by Terry Pratchett

Here's Jingo by Terry Pratchett. Yep, I'm rereading all the Discworld City Watch books I haven't already read in 2019. After that, I'll probably move on to rereading the Witch books. And then probably the rest of the Death books... Don't ever think running out of books is going to ...

Shadow and Bone Leigh Bardugo

The Bookish Owl – Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo

In case you're not sick and tired of these posts yet (this is the 40th!), here's Shadow and Bone by Leigh Bardugo. I committed hubris by only bringing a single book with me on my trip to Budapest last week. I always bring 3 or 4 for a five day ...

Feet of Clay Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett

Here's Feet of Clay by Terry Pratchett. I'm actually already done with this, because I started it just before going on a trip to Budapest, and as I had already dropped off Artemis at his new owl-sitters (who have now been cured of any desire to get an owl of ...

The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

The Bookish Owl – The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman

Ladies and gentlemen, I will now be reading The Invisible Library by Genevieve Cogman. Let's hope it's not filled with invisible words. This series was recommended to me on Twitter (see, Twitter is good for something) and the author is new to me... meaning I don't really have anything to write ...
