  1. Nice! I like these lists you’re doing lately. I would keep some of those for me and add The Orphanage and I’m Not Scared, off the top of my head, and recently I enjoyed Easy Money (Joel Kinnaman!!)

    1. Thanks! I have these cool books that are part of a listography series, and I love lists (even if they stress me out!)

      I’ve not seen any of the films you mentioned – what are they about? Especially Easy Money because JOEL KINNAMAN!!! (you know how much I love him!!!)


      1. I need the listography books.
        Okay The Orphanage is a Spanish horror film/ghost story about a woman who grew up in an orphanage & later goes back with her husband to move in and re-open it to help other orphans. Buttt spooky things begin to happen while her son goes missing. I’m Not Scared is an Italian movie about a boy who discovers a kidnapping, for political reasons, when he finds another boy being kept in a hole in the ground.
        Night Watch is a Russian action movie with supernatural elements including vampires and shapeshifters. The main character is part of the Night Watch which is a group that helps protect and provide balance between the light and dark, good and evil ect.
        And Easy Money is a Swedish movie(obviouslyyy because Joel!) about a guy who becomes involved in crime in order to live the lifestyle he aspires to but can’t afford and gets in over his head of course.

        I hope I explained them enough without giving anything away, I tried my best.
