Shocked and devastated to her about what happened in Stockholm earlier this week. It's sickening to know that something like this is actually possible. We hear about terror attacks everyday but when it happens here, in Sweden of all places, I'm in complete chock. In times like this I'm so happy to see Stockholm opening up their homes to people and letting love win. My thoughts go out to the people in Stockholm and people whom have lost their loved ones. ♥

If you've read an earlier anxiety related blog post of mine, you'll know all about my plans to go on a bus. However I wasn't feeling confident enough to go through with it and it never happened. But then when I woke up yesterday morning I thought, "you know what? I'm just gonna do it". And I did! I finally did it! For the first time in 4 years I've actually gone on a bus and stayed there for the whole ride. And even though I was feeling slightly terrified and uncomfortable I stepped onto the bus, paid for the journey and found myself a seat. Luckily enough I managed to have picked a bus with not too many passangers. If the station would've been packed with people I probably would've turned around and left. I still don't really feel like I've achieved anything. But I guess it takes time and practice. At least it's a step on the way. I'll allow myself to rest this weekend, maybe read a book or two. I'm hoping this weekend will bring gloomy rainy weather which always makes me feel happy and more relaxed. I kind of feel like having a movie night. Maybe I'll force my family into having a movie marathon with me. With tea and newly made cookies. And I think Broadchurch has started again! I'll need to catch up on that!

Stranger Things
When I first stumbled upon this I noticed two things. That it's set in the 80's and Winona Ryder. It reminds me so much of E.T. with the bikes and the woods and the whole hiding thing. Holly looks so much like Gertie with her blond pigtails. It makes me feel a bit nostalgic. I'm honesty so upset about the fact that the second season doesn't air until 31st October. Mostly because I'm dying to watch it but also because I love October and this just reminds me of how far away it is. Can it just be October already? Yes?

SKAM
This is absolutely brilliant. The third season is my favorite. Go watch it.

The Halcyon
Set in 1940, the Halcyon is a glamorous five-star hotel owned by the Hamilton family. Dealing with family, politics, relationships and social status, this series tells the story of London life in a world at war. There's only one season so far and I'm desperately waiting for another. I've also got half a crush on Toby Hamilton. Just thought I'd throw that in there. And, as the cherry on top and best of all, it comes with a soundtrack with music from the era. If I would've been alive back then, I'd hands down be a jazz singer. It's my secret calling in life. I just know it. I went to a marvelous party and I couldn't have liked it more. *Channeling my inner Betsey Day*.

What's your favorite tv series at the moment?

Spent the day curled up in bed watching Skam, with my sister and Walther.

The Song Rising by Samantha Shannon

"Following a bloody battle against foes on every side, Paige Mahoney has risen to the dangerous position of Underqueen, ruling over London's criminal population. But, having turned her back on Jaxon Hall and with with vengeful enemies still at large, the task of stabilizing the fractured underworld has never seemed so challenging. Little does Paige know that her reign may be cut short by the introduction of of Senshield technology that spells doom for the clairvoyant community and the world as they know it."

The Song Rising is the third book in the Bone Season series. I've already read the Bone Season and the Mime Order and I recently read the Pale Dreamer which is a novel in the same series. The Bone Season is one of my favorite dystopian science fiction book series so I'm really excited about this one.

Unfiltered: No Shame, No Regrets, Just Me by Lily Collins

"For the first time ever, Lily shares her life and deepest secrets, proving that every single one of us experiences pain and heartbreak. We all understand what it's like to live in the light and in the dark. For Lily, it's about making it through to the other side, where you love what you see in the mirror and where you embrace yourself just as you are. She's learned that all it takes is one person standing up and saying something for everyone else to realize they're not alone."

I've always known of Lily Collins, but I don't know much about her. Last year I read Drew Barrymore's book Wildflower, which I loved. I'm hoping this book will be along the same lines. From what I've gathered so far she tells the story of dealing with body image, self-confidence and relationships. Both of these books come out on 7th March and I'm most excited to read them.
