If you don’t watch Doctor Who, this will mean nothing to you. Sorry in advance. Anyway, Rory’s day is Arthur Weasley! OK, Filch was in last night’s episode too. Really, mixing two of my favorite things, Harry Potter and Doctor Who — does it get better than that in TV watching land? The correct answer is no, no it does not.
Although, I may have to stop watching Doctor Who with my husband. He doesn’t get it and says silly things like, “Why are there dinosaurs on a space ship? That makes no sense.” *big sigh* I don’t want to ruin the episode for anyone who didn’t see it but I do have to say something about Amy and Rory. We all know they’re leaving (that’s not a spoiler people!) and that’s making me sad enough because I like the Ponds but then there’s this scene at the end where the Doctor is standing behind them and looks at them so sadly. He knows it’s coming and, ack, it’s making me sad. Oh, the life of the Doctor, and the companions too. If you don’t watch, here.
So as not to make this all about Doctor Who, cuz I could, let’s talk books. I read books this week. And what were those books you ask? Let me tell you.
The Map of the Sky by Felix J. Palma — the sequel to The Map of Time. It was good and I need to write up a review today but I’m having trouble getting starting because there’s so much going on in the book and being honest, I don’t know where to start.
Abominable by William Meikle — a short story about the British mountain climber Mallory and what really happened to him. It was fun. I bought another one of Meikle’s books, Berserker, which I thought would be a good read for October. He does an excellent job with the weird creatures.
The New World by Patrick Ness — I’ve yet to read the Chaos Walking trilogy. I know. I’m the last as I tend to be with things like this. You all love it and I want to love it too but I’m not sure so I stay away. This one was a free short story download and I thought why not. I loved it. And now I think I need to see if my library has the others. You may all be right on this one.
I, on a last minute whim, decided to sign up for Book Blogger Appreciation Week. I’m a little torn about this. I want to participate but I have mixed feeling about it too. On the one hand, it’s great to find new blogs and connect with people but I don’t know how much time I’m going to have to read everything and comment. Maybe I’ll just answer a question or two and that will be it. At least they got rid of the awards this year. It’s not that I don’t appreciate things like that but they went to the same people every year and why bother if that’s what’s going to happen. Not that I don’t think those bloggers deserve the awards because they do, but it just didn’t mean much. Anyway, there you have it. I have no idea why I’m rambling on about this so I’m just going to stop.
Last week I was super productive on the blog front. So productive I managed to schedule posts through the week of October 1. No, really, I did. I even amazed myself. That means there will be reviews! Now, if I can keep this up, all will be well.
That’s all I’m going to ramble about for now. Enjoy the day and happy reading.
