Why 'The Headless Owl'?

I wish I could tell you I was a huge fan of owls or heads, or that my blog's name has some kind of symbolic meaning, but it doesn't. Honestly, I have a weird sense of humor and thought 'The Headless Owl' was dark enough for my tastes while still being vague enough to pass for a normal blog name.

Me as a reader

I've loved reading for as long as I can remember. I am a huge fan of YA and children's novels of all genres, but I do love reading adult books as well, and I read a lot of non-fiction for school! Basically, I like books! 

As a new book blogger, I plan on doing a series of posts that will allow you to get to know me a little better as a reader. See posted and upcoming posts here!

Books that made me love reading:


  1. I came across your site because of exactly this, 2 headless owls. My son and friend were walking through local woods and came upon 2 headless owls lying on the ground. Nothing else around. I thought perhaps they were in a fight for territory or something, but the kids said both heads were missing from the bodies nowhere to be found. I thought this so odd and unheard of, and possibly the work of witches and or Satanic rituals. For such enormous powerful animals, this is such a crazy horrible thing. Any ideas?

    1. Wow, that is such a creepy and sad thing to stumble upon. I honestly don't know what to say. I'm not too familiar with animal behavior and I don't know anything about satanic rituals. My blog name is at most metaphorical and definitely not a reference to anything like that! I certainly hope the owls were killed while fighting like you thought and not tortured by humans. Hopefully it was other wild animals that removed the heads? Either way, so sad that your sons had to see something like that.


I love meeting other bloggers and readers, so let me know what you think! I try to always reply to comments, either directly or on your blog.
