Nattmannen by Jørn Lier Horst
The Great Hack
Some kind of monster
Andy Murray: Resurfacing
Mission: Impossible Fallout
Some re-watching, some (read: Frozen) that my sister-in-law insisted little brother needed to see.
Parks & Recreation
Shine on with Reese
Home for Christmas
The Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj
Did anyone else watch Men in Trees (2006-2008)? Doesn’t Virgin River have the same vibe? City woman moves to the wild, meets charming man?
Apart from that – FLEABAG. Please watch it if you haven’t. I loved it, easily best show I’ve seen this year. Alias Grace was also very good, and it probably helped that I’d forgotten most of the book, so had no idea where it was going.
I got nothing.
Jenny Slate: Stage Fright
Game Over, Man
What’s your number?
My brother hadn’t seen Shrek, so obviously made him watch it.
The man in the high castle
The Crown (season 3!)
Kristin Emilssons Den som väntar
Bernhard Nordhs Undan frostpiskan
Meh. I don’t even have an excuse – I spent a week reading on the beach and all. I just don’t feel like it?
Jessica Jones (finished!)
Jem & the Holograms
Whitney Cummings: Can I touch it?
Iron Man 2
Can we talk about how cute Dumplin’ was? And how it’s the best role I’ve seen Jennifer Aniston in? And how the fat girl got the cute guy (not the other way around)? The main character is Danielle Macdonald, who was also the lead in Patticake$, which I quite enjoyed as well. We have Disney+ for free until November, so obviously had to re-watch some Marvel stuff.
Also this was nothing spectacular, but I did go twice a week, every week (except the first when I was lying on the beach).
Bernhard Nordhs Fjällfolk
Jenny Colgan’s The Little Shop of Happy Ever After (Scottish Bookshop #1)
Kristin Emilssons In i minsta detalj
Johanna Mos Jag var tvungen att gå
The Orville (season 2)
Disenchantment (season 2)
Wow, the Orville! While the first season was fine, this second one was really good.
Dana Carvey: Straight White Male, 60
Katherine Ryan: In Trouble
Katherine Ryan: Glitter Room
Mute was meh (yes, OK, I watched it because Paul Rudd is in it and he’s adorkable). 13th Amendment was an eye-opening documentary. The great takeaway – Katherine Ryan! Man, she’s now in my top list of stand-ups. Watch her!
Well, the squats make me hate Stronglifts. I guess I will try something new?
Lars Wilderängs Stjärnfall (Stjärnklart #2)

Sara Lövestams Som eld
Jørn Lier Horsts Vinterstängt
Jørn Lier Horsts Bottenskrap
Sarah Morgan’s One Summer in Paris
Well, look at that! Apparently I just read in Swedish now? (The last book was also in Swedish, just used the English one when logging it.) At least I’m reading.
Quicksand (finished off)
Derry Girls – season 2!
The Big Bang Theory (finished!)
The Good Place (finished!)
The Patriot Act with Hasan Minhaj
Can we talk about how fun Derry Girls is? I love them all, but especially sister Michael. I have already watched season 1 more than once, and am being really careful not to finish season 2 too soon.
Can we also talk about how horribly Big Bang Theory ended? For like a whole season, there was a recurring discussion between Leonard and Penny because he wanted kids and she not. Then in the last episode of the show she has suddenly just changed her mind? And it’s just explained like “before I didn’t, but now I do”? Is it that provocative that a women doesn’t want kids? Geez.
Falling Inn Love
It was a cute (Netflix produced) movie, but could they not have found a cuter male lead? Yes, sure, shallow comment, but I mean it.
So so. Obviously already told that I didn’t work out at all during vacation, but I have been a couple of times since we got back. Not yet back to normal schedule, but I’ll get there!
Ok, let’s pretend it’s 3 weeks ago, and then read this post.
Jenny Colgan The cafe by the sea
Akwaeke Emezi Freshwater
Two measly books! (And the first one I’ve read before, but Lisa recommended the reader of the audio version, so I thought I’d give it a go, and made it through.) Slump month.
Big Bang Theory
Fresh Prince of Bel Air
Quicksand (org. Störst av allt)
OK. For someone who likes to watch 1 show at the time, this seems like a mess, but it’s actually working out alright. Designated Survivor surely took an odd turn from season 1 to season 2, but I’m alright with it. It reminds me (a little bit!) of the West Wing now. The Big Bang Theory also picked up in the last season! I’ve actually laughed a few times now, which didn’t happen in the previous 2-3 seasons. Queer Eye is just nice to watch if you’ve had a crap day, or you know, read the news.
When I grew up we didn’t have the channels where Fresh Prince was on, but we were thrilled when we managed to catch an episode when visiting grand-mom. Now it’s on Netflix, so I want to see what I missed. And Quicksand is based on a book I really enjoyed. And the author’s dad highly recommended the adaptation. (Like, they didn’t ask him because he’s her dad, but he’s a famous author and criminilogist in Sweden, so it was a side-question during an interview.)
The Mask You Live in
Well, Stormlight Archives still holds up – the first book was as good as I remembered. Second book was a bit more “meh”. It was of course not bad at all, and the story caught my attention, I just haven’t thought about it at all since putting it away. The book about Amy Byler was the big surprise in this list. I picked it as part of the summer reading challenge. It was the one in a list whose cover seemed to be in my taste. I really really enjoyed it! GW’s book was far from interesting, but I still finished it. Sjärnklart was not bad for a Swedish dystopic book, but not as good as Swedavia (also (spoiler alert!) the second part makes it clear he’s going with the alien invasion as reason… so boring.)
The Big Bang Theory (trying to finish it…)
Designated Survivor (S01!)
Friends from College
Always be my Maybe
A Star is Born
A Simple Favor
Ok, so. I’ve mentioned the first two earlier (recommend both!). A star is born was underwhelming, but maybe my expectations were set too high based on the hype. Bohemian Rhapsody was quite entertaining. Ex Machina was good. However, the by far favorite was A simple favor. I mean it has Anna Kendrick and Blake Lively as the main characters!
This month has been a bit on and off with the workouts, mainly as I finally had enough of the old gym and how busy it is (only took close to 6 months). Found a new gym and have done a trial week there to see if I like it (I do!). Hopefully July will be more consistent in this area.
