The Discworld Project: A Round Up of 2021

So if you’re new here, hello welcome to Hedwig’s World of Books. I’m Hedwig, these are my books and a percentage of them are by Terry Pratchett. Back in 2019, after I started this blog, I launched my first major rsading project. Named simply ‘The Discworld Project’, I aimed to overcome my grief over the…

December 2021 Wrap Up

In true Hedwig fashion, a delayed December wrap up to begin 2022! So December was a warped reading month. Mostly beween work, the usual seasonal prep and uncertainty of a certain Ms. Rona. But also because I wanted to finish on my goal of 100 books this year! Sudden hospital tests last year prevented it…

A Challenge for 2022: 12 Books from 12 People

Review: Soul Music by Terry Pratchett

Welcome back to the Discworld Project! So fun fact about me today, I have a long, emotional connection to various genres of rock music. I went through a very distinct punk/emo/goth part of my teenage years obsessing over Kerrang!, music videos and getting band merch as gifts. I at one point wanted to study music…

November Wrap Up

Here it is folks, my second last wrap-up of 2021. What was this year? Like seriously, it just kind of happened didn’t it? November was predictably, a slower reading month. I had a lot of awkward shift changes in work, generally had a bunch going on. But we’re into the festive season, I have a…
