Looking Forward To:

Films!
Looking Forward To:

May
The Amazing Spider-Man 2 (May 2)
Okay, so it's kind of testerone city and there's not much Emma Stone in the trailers. It's totally not going to pass the Bechdel Test. But I'm okay with that. Because I'm pretty sure, based on the comics, of what is going to happen in this movie. And there's too much awesome in this reboot (to me. Feel free to argue).

Belle (May 2)
Ohhhhh my goodness! I cannot even explain my excitement for this film! If you haven't seen the trailer, go watch it. Lady stars? Yes. Period Piece? Yes. Social Injustice. YES. IT PASSES MY TEST YOU GUYS.

X-Men: Days of Future Past (May 23)
You guys already know how marvel-psycho I am. The trailers and promo pictures have been pretty penis-heavy, but I'll let it go for now. There's a lot of lady-power in this movie, so I'm going to hold on to my hope.

Maleficent (May 30)
Speaking of Lady-Power....This will be the movie to do it! I know Angelina Jolie can be tiresome (mainly because of her life in the tabloids, as opposed to her life on film), but her acting can be pretty spot-on! I mean, let's talk Gia and Girl, Interrupted! I look forward to seeing what she can do with one Disney's greatest villains.

TV!
Spring is on its way out and we're getting ready for summer start-ups! Until that happens, here's what I'm watching:

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.
I haven't really spoken about the show on here yet, so I'm doing so now. I absolutely love it. I know it's been receiving a lot of criticism - slow to start, sometimes hard to follow, it doesn't "feel" like a Marvel show, blah blah blah - but I actually enjoy it. Like any Whedon show, it is slow to follow because he's building the suspense and he's developing characters. The heart-wrenching kick-assery happens more the further we go. Plus, I'm sorry, when Coulson yells "Don't ever tell me there's no way!" in the first episode, my heart jumped.

Books!
Currently Reading:

Just as a quick note, I'm reading like four things right now. I work at a bookstore, I pick up a book, and then I start. It's getting difficult to balance!

Also, I'm attempting to read 40 books this year. I'm already two books in. Last year, I started the year thinking "50 books!" and then knocked it down to 30 due to personal things. But here's to 2014 giving me a little more free time!

Brain on Fire: My Month of Madness by Susannah Cahalan
-This is book is so wonderfully intense. I'm so glad I decided to begin reading it. The book itself is the true story of Susannah Cahalan, a writer for The New York Post who, due to something called Anti-NMDA receptor encephalitis, lost her mind for over a month, and is still working on gaining her personality back to this day.
