On Target

During this long stay with our friend, I've made more of a point to read than I usually do. Part of that has to do with it being incredibly difficult to find time to be alone for writing, and part is that with the stress of the situation on top of the usual summer mess (two bands, gigs almost every weekend, and busy season at work), I haven't even wanted to write at all. So, it's been many months, but I've finally read the Target books. Or, I should say, I've read as many as I intend to. I did buy The Day of the Doctor, but honestly, I don't think I could stomach it.

tl;dr I can't decide which I preferred, City of Death or Rose, but I can say both are fantastic and will be re-read sometime soon. The Christmas Invasion is good and fun, but nothing to write home about.
