Movie: X-Men Origins: Wolverine
Goal: 13/50 (26% Complete)
Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy/Action; Comic Books and Superheroes
About: This action-packed prequel to the popular X-Men films explores Marvel Comics character Wolverine's (Hugh Jackman) past and the events that influenced the mutant before the Weapon X program bonded his skeleton with the powerfully strong metal alloy adamantium. After the death of his girlfriend, Wolverine seeks vengeance against supervillain Victor Creed (Liev Schreiber). Ryan Reynolds, Danny Huston and Lynn Collins co-star.
Quote: "I thought you were the Moon and I was your Wolverine. Turns out you're the Trickster, and I'm just the fool who got played. " -Logan
My Thoughts: Yay, my favorite x-men got their origins movie first! I really enjoyed this movie but it definitely has a different feel to it than the other x-men movies. Also, you need to have at least seen the first x-men movie or else the end of this movie really blows. The writers did a really good job fleshing out Wolverine's story, no complaints.

There were no red colored M&Ms from 1976 to 1987.

Title: Dead as a Doornail
Author: Charlaine Harris
Goal: 14/60 (23 1/3% Complete)
Pages: 295
Genre: Urban Fantasy/Horror/Paranormal Romance
About: When Sookie's brother Jason's eyes start to change, she knows he's about to turn into a were-panther for the first time. But her concern becomes cold fear when a sniper sets his deadly sights on the local changeling population-and Jason's new panther brethren suspect he may be the shooter. Now, Sookie has until the next full moon to find out who's behind the attacks, unless the killer decides to find her first.
My Thoughts: I really don't like the were-centric stories so this was a low point in the series for me.

The name "Snickers" for the popular candy bar was named after a horse that the Mars family owned.

You know spies...

"I never run around in the bushes in a ski mask when I’m breaking in some place. Somebody catches you, what are you going to say? You want to look like a legitimate visitor until the very last minute. If you can’t look legit, confused works just as well. Maybe get a soda from the fridge or a yogurt. If you’re caught, you just act confused and apologize like crazy for taking the yogurt; nothing can be more innocent."
