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!


Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett

Lights! Camera! Action! It's Moving Pictures by Terry Pratchett. This has always been my least favorite Discworld book, but I did like it a little better upon rereading it. I do, however, think it could have been vastly improved by more scenes with the wizards. Especially since this is the ...

City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty

The Bookish Owl – The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty

This time it's The City of Brass by S. A. Chakraborty. First off, I want to say that this book has great characters, amazing worldbuilding and the plot is also just fine. Which is why I have absolutely no idea why it took me 300 pages to get into it. It ...

Arthas by Christie Golden

The Bookish Owl – Arthas by Christie Golden

It's Warcraft time, with Arthas by Christie Golden! I read this when it was first released, many years ago, but it was nice to revisit the story of Prince Arthas Menethil, and his transition into the Lich King, the leader of an undead army set on erasing all life on ...

Pyramids by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Pyramids by Terry Pratchett

It's time for assassins and disgruntled mummies with Pyramids by Terry Pratchett. You didn't think I was done with Discworld, did you? I only have a few books left to finish my reread of this entire series, but I'm pacing myself. Running out of Pratchett books is one of the ...

An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

The Bookish Owl – An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir

Another book, and this time it's An Ember in the Ashes by Sabaa Tahir. Overall I enjoyed this book. The romantic relationships between the characters seemed a bit juvenile compared to the dark themes of the book and the situation the characters found themselves in, but not so much that ...

Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows

The Bookish Owl – Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling

Today's book is Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows by J. K. Rowling. I don't think I need to tell you that this book is fairly depressing. A lot of beloved characters die, but I'm going to completely ignore that for this post and instead focus on my favorite part ...

Nation by Terry Pratchett

The Bookish Owl – Nation by Terry Pratchett

We're back with a familiar author on this blog, seeing as today's book is Nation by Terry Pratchett. I'll admit that this book wasn't quite what I expected. I felt like reading something funny, so of course I went with a Pratchett book, but 'Nation' starts out with the main ...

Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince Owl

The Bookish Owl – Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling

Hoot, hoot! All aboard for Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince by J. K. Rowling! I might be a little sleep-deprived... But I must say I enjoyed rereading the Harry Potter books as an adult. Like most readers my age, these books were a huge part of my childhood and ...

Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce

The Bookish Owl – Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce

Today's book is Lioness Rampant by Tamora Pierce. This is the last book in the Song of the Lioness Quartet, and honestly, I found it a little disappointing. There was so much potential in the plot with Duke Roger and his schemes, but so little of the book was dedicated ...

King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

The Bookish Owl – King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo

Another day, another pretty book: King of Scars by Leigh Bardugo. This book is part of the Grishaverse, of which I thoroughly enjoyed the original trilogy. 'King of Scars' focuses on some of the supporting characters from the Shadow and Bone trilogy and it was really interesting to get a ...
