Doctor Who 8.07 - Kill the Moon

This week’s Doctor Who episode Kill the Moon was perplexing. I can’t tell if it was okay, if oddly paced, or just tired and confusing. The plot idea itself was pretty interesting though and I guess for once we can’t blame Steven Moffat for all the bad stuff!

Follow me under the cut for a review of Kill the Moon.

The Dresden Readthrough: Ghost Story

We continue our readthrough of Jim Butcher's uber-popular urban fantasy series The Dresden Files today with book thirteen, Ghost Story. The continuing plan is to do a book a month on the first Tuesday of each month, and with 16 books on the publication schedule between now and when our readthrough is over, our reading list should be pretty full for the foreseeable future.

As for Ghost Story, in many ways this was my favorite book in the series so far, and in many ways it was easily the most frustrating.

Book Review: Nyctophobia by Christopher Fowler

Nyctophobia is defined as a significant fear of the dark. I'm not generally someone who is afraid of the dark, although I've been known to have my overtired darkness hallucinations from time to time. While I'm not really into scary books, this story in particular kind of feeds into the latent fears that I think we all thought we might have grown out of.

I also hadn't slept well in a week while reading this, and realized that (given I was reading this before bed every night), perhaps the warm glow of my Paperwhite was not enough to keep my mind firmly rooted in reality.
