The Bookish Owl – A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett

A Hat Full of Sky Terry Pratchett owl

I just started reading A Hat Full of Sky by Terry Pratchett!

I’m trying to consume as many books as possible before my LASIK surgery on Monday goes horribly wrong and I go blind. Just kidding… It’ll be fine.


But it is a fact that I’m going to be stuck at home for days while recovering without being allowed to read. Do you know what kind of hell it puts me in when someone tells me I’m not allowed to go to work, read books, play video games or even exercise?!

But back to the book (before I spiral into a pit of despair): ‘A Hat Full of Sky’ is the second book in the Tiffany Aching series of Discworld. I ended up really liking Tiffany after reading ‘The Wee Free Men’ and since I’m pretty sure that’s Granny Weatherwax with her on the cover of this one, I can only assume it’s going to be great.

A Hat Full of Sky
by Terry Pratchett

Tiffany Aching is ready to begin her apprenticeship in magic. She expects spells and magic—not chores and ill-tempered nanny goats! Surely there must be more to witchcraft than this!

What Tiffany doesn’t know is that an insidious, disembodied creature is pursuing her. This time, neither Mistress Weatherwax (the greatest witch in the world) nor the fierce, six-inch-high Wee Free Men can protect her. In the end, it will take all of Tiffany’s inner strength to save herself… if it can be done at all.

  1. You can be like Blind Hugh. Colour of Magic. (I think)

    Good luck…

    1. Isn’t Blind Hugh a beggar…?
      I’m not sure I’m tough enough to be an Ankh-Morpork beggar. Or creative enough.

      Blind Io, on the other hand…

      1. Ha ha. Yeah the shades really test ones will. And probably dexterity too.

        (You’re one of the few people I can use D&D humor with)

        I’d actually forgotten about Blind Io…

        1. I might have rolled high enough dexterity, but low perception and persuasion might end up being the death of me. If I don’t see them coming, and can’t bullshit my way out of it even if I do, no amount of speed will help me.

          But I believe I’m smart enough to avoid the Shades. Just not sure I got what it takes to annoy people enough so that they give me money to go away.

          Sitting on a mountain, playing games and messing with people sounds more like my thing.
