9 from the Nine Worlds is a funny and distinctive fantasy fiction by Rick Riordan. This book is about Magnus Chase’s friends and their individual journeys through the 9 worlds. I love the way the author makes each chapter different and the way he transforms everyday things into something funny. I recommend this book to anyone who already read the other three Magnus Chase books or someone who wants to read a few funny short stories.

Magnus Chase and the Ship of the Dead is a thrilling and funny fiction novel by Rick Riordan. This book is about a guy named Magnus Chase.  He and his friends travel across the nine worlds in search of a way for them to defeat Loki and return him to his chains and delay Ragnarok at the same time. I love the way the author makes the most serious moments really funny and exciting. The sarcasm in this book is so funny and original, I couldn’t stop laughing!

He is given the task of retrieving Thor’s hammer from the king of earth giants. He and his friend’s scheme and travel to every length, even if it means that they have to let out the God’s oldest prisoner. I love the way Rick Riordan portrays the gods, he makes them act either serious or super funny.

Magnus Chase and the Sword of Summer is a humorous and adventurous fantasy novel by Rick Riordan. This book is about a homeless 16-year-old boy named Magnus Chase. He travels the nine worlds as an einherjar. He and his friends find a way to keep the Norse God’s enemy tied up on a magical island. I love the way Rick Riordan humorizes even the most tragic events. I recommend this book to anyone wanting something good to read or anyone wanting a good laugh.

Out of every Marvel Movie in their Phase 1 collection, this was my favorite. It was funny, action packed, and adventurous. The movie starts with an introduction to the overconfident God of Thunder and the God of Mischief. Thor is banished to Earth where he meets Jane Foster and others. A Destroyer came to Earth and Thor had to use his powers and learn how to be a hero to go back to Asgard. This is the first movie in Marvel Studios that shows Hawkeye and introduces him in a brief time. I recommend his movie to many Marvel fans and many comedy fans.
