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 – 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 ...

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 ...

Madness and Newspapers

I found a newspaper in my freezer yesterday. I have been thinking about that a lot. Just an entire newspaper, not wrapped around something or anything. There was literally no reason for this newspaper to be there. Also, I don't remember putting it there. So why the hell was there ...
