April Check-In

Last month I said the next time I did one of these it would be finals week and here we are. It's been a very busy month but a good one. Also, I'm hoping that once I get home I'll be able to start blogging regularly again.

Word count: 17,455 words
I still don't have an official WIP, but that didn't stop me from easily setting a new word count record for the month. Hopefully that will be another thing that changes as soon as I get home. I do have some ideas.

Books read: 4 
I did not, in fact, step up my game this month. The math says I'm going to have to read about 10 books a month from here on out to make it. Among those read this month were Battle Dress by Amy Efaw, which was easily my favorite for the month, and In the Time of the Butterflies by Julia Alvarez.

Watched: 3
Much better this month than previous but still not great. I finally watched the Veronica Mars movie and it was everything I wanted and more. I'm dying for it to come out on DVD so that I can watch it again. Then there was Captain America: Winter Soldier which is absolutely fantastic and probably my favorite Marvel movie after Avengers. And finally there was Mean Girls which for some reason I've never actually seen. It didn't blow me away or anything but I did really enjoy it.
