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!

A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms George R. R. Martin

The Bookish Owl – A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms by George R. R. Martin

I have been putting off reading this book for a long time, but now it's time for A Knight of the Seven Kingdoms (collection of the Tales of Dunk and Egg novellas) by George R. R. Martin. Why have I been putting it off, you might ask? After all, "A Song ...

Thief of Time Terry Pratchett Owl

The Bookish Owl – Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett

I started reading Thief of Time by Terry Pratchett on Friday, didn't get around to taking a picture until today, and now... I'm sort of done with the book already. "Thief of Time" is meant to be taken literally, apparently, because I don't usually have 400+ pages disappearing on me ...

Mogworld Yahtzee Croshaw Owl

The Bookish Owl – Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw

I'm burning through books much faster than usual, so I'm kind of running low on fantasy books that aren't the size of bricks (and aren't written by Terry Pratchett). Luckily, I have books worthy of a second reading! I'm currently rereading Mogworld by Yahtzee Croshaw. (I looked up the author ...

The Truth Terry Pratchett Owl

The Bookish Owl – The Truth by Terry Pratchett

"You can't handle the truth!"  I had to do it, didn't I? Hopefully I can handle The Truth by Terry Pratchett, seeing as that's what I'm currently reading. As always with Discworld, the book is funny and enjoyable... and Artemis is not getting the feel at all. I think he ...

Warcraft Before the Storm Christie Golden Owl

The Bookish Owl – Before the Storm by Christie Golden

I'm getting a lot more reading done ever since I started doing these posts. If only owl photos could improve my writing speed as well! Next up on my reading list is Before the Storm by Christie Golden. It's a media tie-in for World of Warcraft and I'm waaay behind ...

The Fifth Elephant Terry Pratchett owl

The Bookish Owl – The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett

Aaaaaaaaand, I'm back on the Discworld! Just started on The Fifth Elephant by Terry Pratchett, featuring Sam Vimes and his Watch. And since Sam Vimes is basically me (if I had been male and a guard captain in a fantasy book), I'm feeling right at home. The eternal battle between ...

Owl The Last Wish Andrzej Sapkowski

The Bookish Owl – The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski

So, I'm taking a short break from Discworld to indulge in some monster-slaying goodness! I just started reading The Last Wish by Andrzej Sapkowski (I will never not need to google the spelling of that...), which is the first book in the Polish book series the amazing Witcher video games are ...

Carpe Jugulum Owl Book

The Bookish Owl – Carpe Jugulum by Terry Pratchett

I was asking myself, "How do I get more bookish content on my website without getting boring?" Of course, considering my taste in pets, the answer should have been rather obvious, but you would be amazed how often I forget that people actually like owls... even more than they like ...
