I’ve decided to do a Discworld reread this year. Jacob is reading me Lords and Ladies as our current bedtime read, but I’m mostly going to read in publication order (which is NOT how I’d recommend you start if you’re new to Discworld, FYI!)
The Colour of Magic is a delightful romp around the Discworld, and I had remembered enjoying it when I first read it 20-something years ago, but was quite surprised to discover just how little I’d remembered of it. The luggage! Pratchett’s writing is masterful, with a witty control of language that simultaneously creates a unique and fascinating new world whilst cleverly critiquing aspects of our own world that we frequently take for granted. 10/10 would recommend – but if you’ve not read Discworld before, maybe start with Mort instead. You can thank me later

About the Author

NSWPRC Officer, Teacher Librarian, English teacher and social media advocate. I've been teaching in Western Sydney for my entire teaching career, and love my job more than I love Neil Gaiman. (That's a lot, in case you're wondering!) I stalk authors (but always politely), fangirl over books, and drink coffee. And one of my guilty prides about my children is that they all have favourite authors. All opinions are my own.
