Bookish (and not so bookish) Thoughts #73

January 26, 2017 | 2 comments


1. My sister got me hooked on the Netflix show Shadowhunters. It felt vaguely familiar but it took a few episodes until I realized that it is based on Cassandra Clare’s series The Mortal Instruments, of which I actually read the first book (City of Bones) in 2013.

2. This is so heartbreaking but how the community came together and the enormous search that was organized over the weekend was amazing to see. It reminded me why I love living in Iceland.

3. I’m really trying to keep reading the news every day, but it is so depressing. Is this our new reality where sharing scientific facts with the public people (who funded the research) is considered going rogue?

4. At least, there is plenty of material for comedians to use. This video is awesome.

5. It is nice to read about more positive things like this restaurant for a change.

6. I so need this to happen.

7. The nominees for the 2017 Oscars have been announced. I’m happy to see the Swedish movie A Man Called Ove (based on Fredrik Backman’s book) is nominated in the foreign language film category. I haven’t seen any of the film nominated for best picture, but I really want to see La La Land.
