April wrap-up

The books:

Octavia E. Butler’s Parable of the Sower (Earthseed, #1)
Reni Eddo-Lodge’s Why i’m no longer talking to white people about race
Therése Söderlind’s Vägen mot Bålberget

Omg, such a poor reading month. While I loved Why I’m no longer talking to white people about race, I didn’t love Vägen mot Bålberget (idk what the English title would be, it’s about the witch-burnings that happened in Sweden, but still fictional). I think I’m just in a funk, but no books appeal me right now.

The movies:

Tomb Raider
The Shape of Water
Captain Fantastic
Avengers: Infinity War

I mean, I like both Alicia and my Marvel universe, but the movie I’ll remember from this month is Captain Fantastic.

The shows:

Archer
Parks & Recreation
Penny Dreadful

If you’ve missed it (I guess it’s possible?), this is the original:

And this is Titus’:
