Wings by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Wings by Terry Pratchett

Time to fly away with Wings by Terry Pratchett. This book was the conclusion to the truly odd Bromeliad Trilogy. I'm still not certain what I think about the series as a whole, but if you like stories about tiny people stealing vehicles and having existential crises, this will deliver! ...

The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant

The Bookish Owl – The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant

Gather around, thieves and beggars, for The Court of Miracles by Kester Grant! I have never read Lés Miserables nor seen any of the adaptions of the story, but maybe that's exactly why I enjoyed this reimagining so much. I find that having preconceived ideas about how the characters should ...

The Bookish Owl – War of the Spark: Forsaken by Greg Weisman

We're back in MTG territory with War of the Spark: Forsaken by Greg Weisman. This was the follow-up to War of the Spark: Ravnica, which I read in my quest to learn more about the Magic: The Gathering universe after I joined a Ravnica-themed Dungeons & Dragons group. This book mainly focuses ...

Top Ten Tuesday – Book Titles that Would Make Great Song Titles

It's time for Top Ten Tuesday! This week's topic is Book Titles that Would Make Great Song Titles, so I raided my bookshelves for candidates. It was surprisingly easy this time, but I think it's because I read so much fantasy, and fantasy books tend to have catchy titles. If you're ...

Diggers by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Diggers by Terry Pratchett

We're kicking the week off with Diggers by Terry Pratchett. This was the second book in the Bromeliad Trilogy, and the follow-up to Truckers. This time the alien garden gnomes - the Nomes - steals an excavator to scare the shit out of the humans. I still don't know what ...

The Bookish Owl – Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan

Another day, another book. This time it's Girls of Paper and Fire by Natasha Ngan. This story deals with the horrible themes of sexual assault, but despite that it manages to be heartwarming when it focuses on the bonds created between the girls who have to endure these awful things. And ...

The Bookish Owl – The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty

This Saturday, we're showing off The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty! I know I'm coming back with a vengeance after my earlier absence, but if I don't do these daily for a while, I won't be caught up before the end of the year. Hopefully you're not sick of photos ...

Truckers by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Truckers by Terry Pratchett

Next up is Truckers by Terry Pratchett. This is about garden gnomes from space trying to hijack a lorry. No, really. That’s what the book’s about. As much as I adore the late sir Terry Pratchett, I can't help thinking that he sometimes smoked some questionable stuff while writing... Truckers ...

Dragon Age Tevinter Nights

The Bookish Owl – Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights

Let's get geeky with Dragon Age: Tevinter Nights! This is a collection of short stories from the Dragon Age universe by several different authors. So many, in fact, that I'll just list them at the end of the post, instead of at the top like usual. As regular readers will ...

Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

The Bookish Owl – Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo

I'll continue my marathon-blogging with Crooked Kingdom by Leigh Bardugo. This was the second book in the Six of Crows Duology, and it might just have contained even more devious plots and unexpected twists. I have come to really love fantasy books about criminal underworlds, where the characters are not ...
