I love the library for books, obviously, but it’s also great for movies I didn’t care enough to see in the theater. Ghostbusters was just as much fun as I’d heard. So many callbacks to the original… bordering on too many, but all done for laughs, so they didn’t get as old as in, say, Jurassic World (which was more like a guy constantly poking you in the shoulder going, “Hey! Remember this?! Remember this?!” without much payoff). At the other end of the spectrum, Fantastic 4 was… well, not as bad as I was expecting. But I was expecting really bad. And it took itself sooo seriously. The ones from the ’00s might not have been great, but at least they were entertaining.
The Solitude of Prime Numbers, by Paolo Giordano
I got halfway through this before finally giving it up. It wasn’t bad, but I wasn’t getting anything out of it.
Mr. Splitfoot, by Samantha Hunt
Knew I wasn’t going to get to it, so I returned it early for the next people on the waiting list. I’ll come back around to it again at some point.
The Fifth Wave, by Rick Yancey

I’ve been taking advantage of Marvel Unlimited this month, so the library comics have just been stacking up. Gotta get to these soon.
Kindred, by Octavia E. Butler
Wolverine: Old Man Logan, by Mark Millar and Steve McNiven
Mockingbird, Vol 2: My Feminist Agenda, by Chelsea Cain and Kate Niemczyk [release date 5/2]
