Bookish Owl

You can find tons of book bloggers who post pictures of the books they’re reading.

But how many have a tiny and incredibly grumpy owl to pose next to said books?

Here you find the posts with all of  the books I have been reading, each of them featuring a photo of Artemis scowling at the camera (or trying to eat the book), accompanied by my random thoughts. Enjoy!


Burrowing Owl Books

My Year in Books (and Owls) 2020

Now that we have settled into 2021, I'm going to be looking back at the books - all 63 of them - I read in 2020. I think we can all agree that 2020 was a crappy year, with more and more crap shoved down on top of it nearly ...

Lord of the Clans by Christie Golden

The Bookish Owl – Lord of the Clans by Christie Golden

Given the amount of World of Warcraft I've been playing over the past couple of months, I think it's fitting that the last Bookish Owl post of the year will be Lord of the Clans by Christie Golden. I'm not even joking. All this social distancing has resulted in me ...

House of Salt and Sorrow

The Bookish Owl – House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin A. Craig

Tonight we're going with a horror fairy tale: House of Salt and Sorrow by Erin A. Craig. This book was a great mix of fantasy and horror, and that's a genre we need more of! (That's a barely disguised request for fantasy horror suggestions in the comments. Just in case ...

The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett

We're going Down Under - to Foureks, obviously - in The Last Continent by Terry Pratchett. No worries. Any Discworld novel featuring Rincewind and the wizards of Unseen University is bound to be weird. Throw in time travel and a couple of kangaroos, and it gets even weirder. Which is ...

The Watchmaker of Filigree Street

The Bookish Owl – The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley

The book we're covering in this post is The Watchmaker of Filigree Street by Natasha Pulley! First off: I am not sure what I expected going into this book, but I can safely say that it wasn't that I got. This book is weird, in a way that shouldn't work, but ...

The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

The Bookish Owl – The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden

It seems fitting that we're arriving at a winter fairy tale today with The Bear and the Nightingale by Katherine Arden. This was a beautifully written and engaging story that read like a Russian fairy tale. There are character you will adore and characters you will hate passionately, as well as ...

Small Gods by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Small Gods by Terry Pratchett

It's turtle time with Small Gods by Terry Pratchett. This Discworld book is a great and funny commentary on the nature of religion, and how easily it can be abused and used to control people. It also teaches you a lot about tortoises. Most of all, I really loved the ...

The Empire of Gold by S. A. Chakraborty

The Bookish Owl – The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty

Today Artemis presents the last book in the Daevabad Trilogy - The Empire of Gold by S.A. Chakraborty! The first book in this series didn't grab me from the beginning, but oh boy, how that changed. From halfway through City of Brass until the very end of the trilogy, this story was packed ...

This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab

The Bookish Owl – This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab

Today we have a new author to me, since the book is This Savage Song by V. E. Schwab. After reading posts from this author on Twitter for years, I finally decided to try one of her books. I'll admit that after reading the blurb I did fear it would ...

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! ...
