Happy New Year!


My 2017 Reading Challenge @ Goodreads.

This is the results of my 2017 Read Challenge on Goodreads!
You can see my ratings of the books here if you're curious.

Unfortunately I didn't complete my Reading Challenge in 2017 either. I haven't completed any of my Reading Challenges since 2012, which is just bad. But since I've been doing these Reading Challenges since 2012 I'm not going to stop doing them or stop challenging myself, no matter if I complete them or not. It's definitely time for me to change this though and just read more books every year.

In 2018 I'm going to try to read 28 books since the number suits the year and that's 2,33 books per month so it should be doable.

How many books do you want to read in 2018?

Santa Pika. ♥

 Merry Christmas from me & Santa Pika! ♥

Pika is now years & 9 months old. ♥

Check out my Santa Pika blog posts (videos) from 2016 and 2015.

I took this photo on November 262017 when I took Christmas photos of Santa Pika. ♥

171217 - Third Advent.

Today is the Third Advent!

Today it's only 7 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥

“Star Wars: The Last Jedi” premiere!

Today is the “Star Wars: The Last Jedipremiere!

I'm going to see the movie in exactly 3 hours with my Brother and Dad at my local cinema.
We're going to eat dinner together somewhere before the movie starts.

I look forward to seeing the movie and the continuation of Rey's story, and of course seeing the cute BB-8 again and the cutest new character; the Porg! ♥

I took the photo above of the Star Wars decorations yesterday at SF Sergel but it's perfect to share today.

Star Wars 3D glasses.

Yesterday I saw these cool exclusive Star Wars 3D glasses at SF Sergel!

My Mom was nice and bought me a pair so I'll use them at the “Star Wars: The Last Jedi” premiere tonight!

I chose black because I prefer black over white, and Death troopers are actually more badass than Stormtroopers. Black also goes with everything and they look more normal than the white ones so they don't only have to get associated with Star Wars, they can just look cool on their own too! 
And of course, I'll save them and use them for future 3D movies!

171210 - Second Advent.

Today is the Second Advent!

Today it's only 14 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥
Since it's December 10th, today is also the Nobel day (when they hand out the Nobel prizes) and my name day (Malin)!

My 2017 in Music.

This is my 2017 in Music according to Spotify!

I've listened to 15,495 minutes of music in 2017 so far.
My Top Genre is Pop.
My Top Artists are Ed Sheeran, Def Leppard, Flo Rida, INNA and Pitbull.

My Top Songs are “Sommar sommar sol” - JLC (JLC is a Swedish YouTuber trio, apparently I actually liked this song, haha), “Hysteria- Def Leppard, “The Touch - KOLAJ, “100 Degrees” - KOLAJ and “Ecuador - Original Mix” - Sash!.
My Top Songs is a quite interesting mix; a Swedish “joke” song, a rock ballad and “party” songs. 

Spotify also told me: You skipped 576 songs this year, which means your trigger finger is more active than most. Maybe start listening with a fidget-spinner in hand?” which sounds quite funny to me. I do know that I skip many songs, but most of my playlists are filled with so many songs and sometimes certain songs don't speak to me or my current mood but I still like them and don't want to remove them from my playlist.

171203 - First Advent.

Today is the First Advent!

Today it's only 21 days left to Christmas Eve. ♥

Hans Zimmer @ Ericsson Globe, Stockholm, Sweden.

Hans Zimmer
’s “Hans Zimmer Live” concert at Ericsson Globe in Stockholm, Sweden on May 18, 2017.

Website | Facebook | Twitter | Spotify.

Hans Zimmer today!

Tonight I'm going to see Hans Zimmer at Globen!

I'm going to the concert with my friend Christopher and it starts at 8 pm.

Hans Zimmer will have a band with 15 people, an orchestra and a choir. There will be a total of 60 musicians on stage.

The concert consists of two parts: The first part consists of some of Hans Zimmer's legendary movie themes like Gladiator, The Lion King and Pirates of the Caribbean. And the second part consists of completely new versions of the music from Inception and The Dark Night trilogy.

Hans Zimmer has written music for over 120 movies and for his work he's been awarded 1 Oscar, 2 Golden Globes, 3 Grammys, 1 American Music Award and 1 Tony Award.

This is the first time Hans Zimmer will perform in Scandinavia.

I'm sure that this concert will be a really cool and fun experience and I'm really looking forward to it!

“Justice League” - Official Trailer #1.

Fueled by his restored faith in humanity and inspired by Superman’s selfless act, Bruce Wayne enlists the help of his newfound ally, Diana Prince, to face an even greater enemy. Together, Batman and Wonder Woman work quickly to find and recruit a team of metahumans to stand against this newly awakened threat. But despite the formation of this unprecedented league of heroes—Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Cyborg and The Flash—it may already be too late to save the planet from an assault of catastrophic proportions.

Justice League” premieres on November 17.

“Beauty and the Beast” premiere!

Today is the “Beauty and the Beast” premiere! ♥

I'm going to see the movie at 17:45 (5:45 PM) with my friend Christopher.

Beauty and the Beast” is my favorite Disney movie ever so to say that I'm looking forward to seeing the movie is a big understatement. I'm also a big fan of Emma Watson so I can't wait to see her as my favorite Disney princess Belle. I think Belle in the 1991's Disney movie will always be the best version of the character but I still think it's fun and interesting to see new versions of a character I love and can relate to so much so I'm very curious to see Emma play the character.
My friend Christopher is also a big fan of Emma Watson and Harry Potter, which is probably one of the reasons why we're good friends, and we've been looking forward to seeing this movie since we first heard that they were going to make it. And today we'll finally get to see it together!

Happy International Women's Day 2017!

Happy Women's Day to all Women out there!
I wish you all a good day! ♥

Here's to strong women. May we know them. May we be them. May we raise them.

“Beauty and the Beast” – Official Final Trailer.

The final trailer for Beauty and the Beast is here 🌹 On March 17, rediscover a tale as old as time.

Disney’s “Beauty and the Beast” is a live-action re-telling of the studio’s animated classic which refashions the classic characters from the tale as old as time for a contemporary audience, staying true to the original music while updating the score with several new songs. “Beauty and the Beast” is the fantastic journey of Belle, a bright, beautiful and independent young woman who is taken prisoner by a beast in his castle. Despite her fears, she befriends the castle’s enchanted staff and learns to look beyond the Beast’s hideous exterior and realize the kind heart and soul of the true Prince within.

The film stars: Emma Watson as Belle; Dan Stevens as the Beast; Luke Evans as Gaston, the handsome, but shallow villager who woos Belle; Oscar® winner Kevin Kline as Maurice, Belle’s eccentric, but lovable father; Josh Gad as Lefou, Gaston’s long-suffering aide-de-camp; Golden Globe® nominee Ewan McGregor as Lumiere, the candelabra; Oscar nominee Stanley Tucci as Maestro Cadenza, the harpsichord; Oscar nominee Ian McKellen as Cogsworth, the mantel clock; and two-time Academy Award® winner Emma Thompson as the teapot, Mrs. Potts.

“Prison Break” S5 - Official Trailer #2.

This year breaking out is just the beginning. The original event series is back, “PRISON BREAK” returns!

PRISON BREAK is back and ready for its biggest escape yet. In the thrilling new event series PRISON BREAK, original series stars Wentworth Miller, Dominic Purcell, Sarah Wayne Callies, Amaury Nolasco, Robert Knepper, Rockmond Dunbar and Paul Adelstein are reunited for an all-new adventure spanning the globe and featuring the signature thrills and cliffhangers that were hallmarks of the original series when it aired on FOX from 2005-2009. The original action drama centered on MICHAEL SCOFIELD (Miller, “The Loft”), a young man determined to save his convicted brother, LINCOLN BURROWS (Purcell, “DC’s Legends of Tomorrow”), from death row by hatching an elaborate plan to escape from prison. In the all-new event series, filmed on location in Morocco, clues surface that suggest a previously thought-to-be-dead Michael may be alive. Lincoln and SARA (Sarah Wayne Callies, “Colony,” “The Walking Dead”), Michael’s wife until he was assumed dead, reunite to engineer the series’ biggest escape ever, as three of Fox River State Penitentiary’s most notorious escapees, SUCRE (Nolasco, “Telenovela”), T-BAG (Knepper, “Heroes”) and C-NOTE (Dunbar, “The Mentalist”), are pulled back into the action. “Prison Break” was an immediate critical and ratings hit when it premiered on FOX in the fall of 2005, garnering Golden Globe Award nominations for Best Television Series – Drama and Best Performance by an Actor in a Television Series – Drama (Miller). The original producing team, including series creator Paul T. Scheuring, Neal Moritz, Marty Adelstein and Dawn Olmstead, will return to executive-produce the new series, with Scheuring serving as showrunner/writer.

Personal Planner for 2017 - Look through/Overview.

Put on CC/Subtitles to read my opinions & thoughts during the video! Available in English & Swedish!

I’ve been using the Personal Planner (Personlig Almanacka
) for 2016 and I’m so pleased with it that I’ll be using the same planner for 2017!

The only thing I changed was the back cover, which I changed to a picture of the city in “Kiki’s Delivery Service(which is inspired by my hometown Stockholm). I also changed the elastic closure from a white one to a gold (which they didn’t have last year). Besides those two things, I used the same front cover & the same layout design inside the actual planner.

Personal Planner has changed their ruler into a long one that fits over the whole page in the planner which I think is much better than the shorter ruler they had before. 
Now you also get one A4 page with different stickers for free along with your order.

The Phantom of the Opera today!

Tonight I'm going to see “The Phantom of the Opera” at Cirkus!

I'm going to see it with my friend Johanna and it starts at 7:30 pm.

I've never seen a musical live before so I'm excited that The Phantom of the Opera” will be the first musical I get to see since it's one of the most successful musicals in the world! But the biggest reason why I wanted to see it is because one of my favorite artists Peter Jöback is playing the title role as “The Phantom”.

Peter played the same role in The Phantom of the Opera in London 2012 and New York 2013 and now the third time he's playing the same role in “The Phantom of the Opera” in his/our hometown Stockholm! He will probably not be a part of this musical again and definitely not in Stockholm anyway so of course I couldn't miss the chance to see him star in the big musical that The Phantom of the Opera” is!
