Why You Must Read the Death miniseries from Discworld by Terry Pratchett

This post is part of the Once Upon a Time Challenge. I reread the books. That counts! What do you do when your favourite author dies? When you’re done crying, if ever, you read. You read their books. The ones you’ve read before and any you may not have. You devour every word, like it’s theirContinue reading “Why You Must Read the Death miniseries from Discworld by Terry Pratchett”

Small Gods by Terry Pratchett

“If enough people believe, you can be god of anything…” I loved this book. So did the cat, as you can see, who turned it first into a pillow and then a bedtime toy. Small Gods is one of the bests of the Discworld series. You can read it as a standalone (in fact, youContinue reading “Small Gods by Terry Pratchett”

A Blink of the Screen by Terry Pratchett

I was so thrilled when I saw this at the library. As if it were not enough that it was a book by Terry Pratchett,  it had an introduction by A. S. Byatt. I got it immediately and spent the next couple of weeks reading the many pleasing stories in it. I have to admitContinue reading “A Blink of the Screen by Terry Pratchett”

The Folklore of Discworld by Terry Pratchett and Jacqueline Simpson

I’ve been on too long a break. This has been lying in my drafts, sad and unfinished for a while now. It is only fair to post it on my favourite author’s sixty-fifth birthday. Do I have to say it? Discworld is awesome and even if it seems impossible, this book is just as awesome. IContinue reading “The Folklore of Discworld by Terry Pratchett and Jacqueline Simpson”

Dodger by Terry Pratchett and Dickens by Peter Ackroyd – Dickens in December

Dickens in December (hosted by Caroline at Beauty is a Sleeping Cat and Delia at Postcards from Asia), considering how busy I have been this month, most regrettably turned into Dickens in the last week of December. Dickens, however, did also turn into quite an obsession. I think I’ve mentioned before how much I adoredContinue reading “Dodger by Terry Pratchett and Dickens by Peter Ackroyd – Dickens in December”

Good Omens – Book Review

It is time for yet another book review! The book in question is Good Omens (The Nice and Accurate Prophecies of Agnes Nutter, Witch) by Terry Pratchett and Neil Gaiman. The world is going to end soon; next Saturday, to be precise, right after tea! Anathema Device is a witch. Newton Pulsifer is a witchContinue reading “Good Omens – Book Review”

A long overdue book recommendation

It’s almost the end of the year, and I’m desperately looking forward to the next year! So I haven’t been doing much lately; other than waiting around for time to fly by, of course! And reading Discworld – every second that I am at home. It’s a comic fantasy series by Terry Pratchett and IContinue reading “A long overdue book recommendation”
