I'm a well read grad student who's bluntly honest about all things, although I try to be most honest about myself.
I'm not much for larger crossovers in general as far as comic books go.
I did, however, appreciate the AvX led to this: A+X. In the aftermath of Avengers fighting X-Men, you get a series of one shots. Each comic is comprised of two stories about one Avenger and one X-Men - or at least mutant - fighting together. Sometimes the Avenger is a mutant, so it's more of a mutant/Avenger and mutant/X-Men related character fighting together.
It's lighthearted, and reminds me of all the reasons I love Marvel, even if it's not Marvel's usual fare.
I don't want to know what happened to The Beast though.
