Goodbye 2012, Hello 2013.


My 2012 Reading Challenge @ Goodreads.

2012 Reading Challenge

2012 Reading Challenge
Malin has completed her goal of reading 25 books in 2012!
I've completed my 2012 Reading Challenge on Goodreads!
I found the Goodreads website in the end of April this year.
So, what is Goodreads?
Goodreads is the largest site for readers and book recommendations in the world. We have more than 12,000,000 members who have added more than 410,000,000 books to their shelves. A home for casual readers and bona-fide bookworms alike, Goodreads users recommend books, compare what they are reading, keep track of what they've read and would like to read, find their next favorite book, form book clubs and much more. Goodreads was launched in January 2007.
I think it was already May when I found out that you could do a Reading Challenge like this and of course I decided to do it. So I added the books I read between January-April and then continued reading during the whole year of 2012
You can find the complete list of the books I read during 2012 and how I rated them here.
I don't think that 25 books are that much, but since I signed up on the website in the end of April and then started my Reading Challenge in May, I thought it would be best to be reasonable and think about how many books I thought I'd be able to read during the year so that's why I chose 25 books.
Since I'm already an active member on Goodreads I can continue doing this Reading Challenge every year to make myself read more books and I probably will do this every year, or as long as I'm active on Goodreads anyway. But so far I've been active on it since April when I signed up and I really like to have a website where I can add all the books I've read and also add books I want to read and keep track of them.
It's simply a really good website for people who love reading, which I really do!

121231 - New Year's Eve.

It's December 31, 2012 today which obviously is the last day of the year and it's also New Year's Eve.
I'm going to spend this New Year's Eve at home with my Mom first and have dinner together. ♥
And then in the evening I'll go to Johanna and her husband and celebrate the rest of New Year's Eve with them and some other friends. 
I think I'll have a good New Year's Eve today, first with my Mom and then with Johanna and the others.
I hope that you will have a good New Year's Eve and I wish you all a Happy New Year!

Tiana Benjamin RT 1 of my Tweets for the 2nd time. ♥

Tiana Benjamin, a.k.a. Angelina Johnson in Harry Potter, just RT 1 of my tweets for the second time! ♥
As you can read in my tweet, I was doing a final #FF (which means #FollowFriday) for the year of 2012 and Tiana obviously decided to RT the one she was tagged in. 
And this obviously made me smile, as you can tell by this blog-post... Haha!
But I'm sure everyone who's a fan of someone or something understands me, right?!

Of course I think everyone should follow the Harry Potter stars so I did 2 tweets in total dedicated to some of the Harry Potter cast who I follow on Twitter, and I did a seperate tweet for the Queen herself; J.K. Rowling.

If you're not familiar with Twitter, #FF and #FollowFriday means that you tag the people you are following; the ones you think others should follow as well and the ones you think should get more followers.

If you have a Twitter yourself, you're welcome to follow me on @MalinBelle if you want.

“Harry Potter” actors filming movie scenes for theme parks.

UK paper The Sun reports that Helena Boham Carter, and other cast members have been secretly filming new scenes at Levesdon studios.

The cast have really enjoyed getting back together — they are so tight-knit. The shooting schedule is nowhere near as long as the films, so though filming has been intense, the stars have enjoyed being able to pop in and out,” a source shared.

There’s a catch though — the new film will be shown exclusively at The Wizarding World of Harry Potter at Universal Orlando in Florida, the California theme parks (opening in 2014) and the one in Japan (opening in 2016).

While the article does not specify where the film will be shown, this editor is predicting it to be part of the new Hogwarts Express ride that will take visitors from the new rumored Diagon Alley area to the current Islands of Adventure where Hogsmeade and Hogwarts castle currently reside.

It was rumored previously that while the Hogwarts Express would appear very realistic on the inside with narrow walkways down one side of the train and individual doors leading to separate compartments and a pair of face-to-face seating benches similar to the films, the train windows would also be a movie screen, presumably to provide the passenger the appearance of traveling across the Scottish mountains. This seems to be the ideal ride to have a few Death Eaters like Bellatrix attack the train and provide additional entertainment.

The expansion area in Florida is still only in the "rumor" stages, as Universal and Warner Brothers have been tight lipped about what exactly they are building, but recent pictures do all but confirm that a Gringotts Bank cart ride is being built in the new area along with Diagon Alley. The current plans call for this expansion are to be open to the public in 2014 and we will be sure to bring you all of the information on the theme park news as it happens.


Happy Lucia!



t.A.T.u. @ The Voice Romania.

t.A.T.u. reunited for the first time since their disbanding on The Voice Romania tonight. 
They sang “All The Things She Said” and “All About Us.

I guess you can figure out that I'm a fan of t.A.T.u. since I'm posting this, which I am.
I've been a fan of them for years. I'm obviously sad that they decided to quit t.A.T.u. and focus on solo careers, so it's really fun for me to see them reunite on stage again, even if it was for just one song and one performance.
I would have loved to see them live some day but since they've quitted t.A.T.u. that's no longer possible, if they don't decide to reuinte for real. But even though it's sad to think about, I don't think they will reuinte for real and go back to t.A.T.u. since they both are focusing on their solo careers and they were in t.A.T.u for 12 years (it was announced in March 2011 that t.A.T.u. was officially disbanded) so I think they both want to focus on their future and not go back to the past, even though all their t.A.T.u. fans would love that.
Hopefully I'll get the chance to see both of them performing live some day, even though it will be only Julia Volkova or only Lena Katina and not them together as t.A.T.u..
