In April

Books
The Elements of Style, Strunk and White - I love grammar, how it all fits together so nicely, and I like the way the book The Elements of Style is written: rules of grammar and punctuation, advice, tips, how words can be used to their greatest advantage, it's all cool.

The Children of Odin, Patraic Colum - This is a great book. I loved reading stories about Thor and Loki traveling in Jotumheim, and Odin wandering through Midgard (Earth) in disguise, and how he gave his right eye for a drink from the well of wisdom. I love those stories. If anyone is interested in Norse mythology, The Children of Odin is a great book to start with.

Matter and Energy, Fleisher 


Movies
Wolverine - I didn't care for this movie as much, the only scene I liked was the after-credits scene. That made me very happy.

*X-Men: First Class - I really like Professor X. :)

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. - They're getting more exciting.

Doctor Who - I love it. Very much. Watched the first few episodes of season seven, some of season four, and random specials (The Snowmen, The End of Time part 1, and I'm halfway through part 2), and Blink, that one is clever. I like Clara.

Captain America: The Winter Soldier - It was really great. If you haven't seen it yet, go, if possible. And please don't forget to stay to the very, very end of the credits. It's worth the wait. :)

Phantom of the Opera (25th anniversary) - The music is awesome, not overly fond of the story though. I love All I Ask of You (only the 25th anniversary version of the song though, I don't care for any of the others I've heard).

Cars - Well, I only watched about half of it, but it's such a sweet movie. I like cars.




Did you read and watch anything last month that you liked particularly?
Happy May! Oh, and, The Amazing Spider-Man 2, X-Men: Days of Future Past, and Maleficent come out this month! Yay!
