Finally a vacation, our first trip with the new queen of our lives (long may she reign) ⚡️Zelda 🐾🐾
We‘re in a small town in Belgium and it‘s all lovely, laid back, good food, lots of hiking in the woods, which is fine despite the heat wave ☀️💦
And also , lots of chillout-reading time!! I‘ve been saving this book for this vacation and what a joy it is 😍

Leftcoastzen Sounds wonderful! enjoy ! Zelda is so cute! 2mo

Audiowallking with our lovely doggo Zelda 🐾☀️🎧

First walk after beginning to slowly recover from COVID and it‘s wonderful to be out in the balmy sunshine and feel spring in the air 🌱🌸

Sadly I‘ve lost my sense of smell but am hoping it will return swiftly 🌷

Oh and this book is fun!!

julesG Hope you can smell the spring air soon. 5mo
AmyG Hope you are feeling better each day. 5mo
CoffeeAndABook @julesG YES!! The first delicious scents of spring in the air are the best 🌸 I hope you‘re enjoying the ☀️ as well!! 5mo

CoffeeAndABook @AmyG Thank you!! I‘m amazed at how quickly I‘m recovering 🙏🏼 I just hope there‘ll be no second phase so I‘m taking it VERY easy. 5mo
CoffeeAndABook @julesG God yes 🙄 it felt like it would never end, I‘d forgotten what a blue sky looks like 🥴 5mo
Cinfhen Oh wow!!! I‘m glad to hear you‘re doing better but sorry about your sense of smell. Did you lose your taste to?? Im sure it feels great to be outside ☀️🌈 5mo
Ruthiella Glad you are feeling better! ❤️ 5mo
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen Oh it‘s such a pleasure to be back outside!!! I‘m incredibly grateful to be recovering and back on my feet. I was smiling and greeting everyone on my walk like an insane person! 🤪 Thankfully my tastebuds are fine, although coffee tastes weird for some reason 😩 but otherwise I haven‘t noticed a difference. But my olfactory sense is just GONE! It‘s not as noticeable but I‘m really missing it! 5mo
Cinfhen I think one of my favorite things about coffee isn‘t the taste but the aroma, Chrissy so it makers sense in a way why you think it‘s tasting weird. Ugh!!! Enjoy those sunny day walks with Zelda 😎 5mo
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen ha yes ☕️ that makes perfect sense 👍🏼😩 5mo

Bren912 @CoffeeAndABook ps coffee took awhile to come back but I didn‘t want to get a headache so I still drank it. 5mo
CoffeeAndABook Thank you so much @Bren912 for your kind words and advice. I don‘t go on Litsy on a daily basis so I missed this till now. Sense of smell is slowly returning 😅 and not drinking coffee is never a real option ☕️🤩 5mo

Hanging out with my sweet reading companion Zelda💓🐾

After two years of being super careful (being a longterm „cancer shlepper“) I‘ve managed to contract the dreaded COVID.
I‘m eternally grateful I was able to prepare my immune system before I had to face this virus. I‘m feeling pretty battered, have a slight fever and the sore throat is viscous. But thank God I‘m well enough to read and really enjoy this book, so all is good for now 🙏🏼✨🐾

Am really enjoying this book for the #narniareadalong.

For some reason I thought I wouldn‘t, I think I read several reviews saying it‘s their least favorite book in the series.
So far it feels like my favorite!! 🤩

Absolute 🌟🌟🌟🌟🌟 pick for me.

I‘ve been going through this book super slowly, taking notes and going back to certain chapters again & again. It‘s been an incredible help in finding my way into being a therapist.

I‘ll probably keep it close, just reading a chapter here & there.
Real role models are such a rare gift & Yalom is definitely one as a therapist but he‘s also such a mensch, it shines through in all his books 🔥

Crazeedi I have partial credits toward masters in counseling, I think I'd live this book 1y
CoffeeAndABook @Crazeedi Yes, I think you really might love it! Or live it, whichever you meant 😉 it‘s super inspiring and entertaining as well. Another book I can really recommend by the same author is 1y

Things are moving along nicely in this book for the #narniareadalong! Am all caught up again.

I‘m intrigued by how the story is set up & am enjoying the new characters - especially Doctor Cornelius!!
And love how they call Trumpkin D.L.F. ? that sounds very 21st century!!

All restaurants & cafés have been closed here since November & I miss reading in a cozy café so much!! Am getting some morning coffeehouse vibes via YouTube ??‍♀️☕️

marleed Your space is so pretty. I agree, I can‘t wait to sit a few hours in a coffee shop. 1y

Quick catch-up for the #narniareadalong today!!!
Phew 😅 so glad there are a few extra days for people like me!!
I read & enjoyed the last couple of chapters and was amazed at how much suspense and emotion I felt. Also was surprised at how short and dense the book is.
I realized I really had no clear memory of the ending from my childhood.

I‘ve thoroughly enjoyed re-reading this first installment ~ and now straight on to Prince Caspian🗡 🙌🏼

CaffeineAndCandy It was interesting that the book went back and forth between the separated characters with it being so short. Maximum fun 💜💜💜 1y

So this is it!! I‘m days late in reading the final chapters & posting about it for the #ickabogalong 🙈
The final chapters were very satisfying ~ if a little too tidy maybe...
I‘ll give this 4 stars, I definitely enjoyed it as a group read! The story was engaging, fast paced & full of interesting characters, some kick-ass gals ⚡️
This isn‘t necessarily a book for young children, too much death & deceit.

Thanks so much @Linsy for organizing this!

Election Week was SO HARD!!!
Reading was nearly impossible, I was glued to my various devices every waking second. I have almost no data left for the rest of the month on my cell 🤪
In the evenings I had to decide at some point to let it go and possibly miss crucial calls ~ and just get some sleep!
These essays by the Marvelous Mindy were just perfect to get my mind to turn off, so fun to read, very short each.
They got me through that week 😅

Cinfhen I hear ya!!! It‘s been a stressful few weeks ....hopefully life will now settle down a bit 2y
CoffeeAndABook @Cinfhen I know. Especially since you‘re in the States right now, aren‘t you? I think we‘ll have to actively seek a space of peace, R&R and *books* though🎋📖🍹 it seems „all this“ won‘t be over for a while. If ever 🤪🤪 And now to the important stuff: Congrats on your daughter‘s engagement 🥂🍾🎉 ♾💝 2y

This was such an enjoyable actual beach read for our magical holiday in Crete & not as fluffy as the title suggests. It was quite funny, I continuously chuckled at the banter & didn‘t want the book to end. I liked the love story, the growth of the mc‘s relationship with her recently deceased father. What I LOVED was the premise of two „blocked“ writers daring each other on an fascinating bet and how it played out. Definitely one for booklovers 😊

🗣 recently learned the English word self-efficacy 💪🏼
In case anyone was wondering - the German word is Selbstwirksamkeit 😉

📺 I can get into watching almost any sport!! I watch lots and lots of ⚽️ and 🏈 when the time difference allows - go Broncos 🐎

Eggs Phlox & baby‘s breath 💗💗 ! Gotta love German words 2y

I‘m caught up!!

Wow. These past chapters were breathtaking. So many feels, so many stunning reveals, such pride in the bravery of Harry, Neville, Snape - and yesss - the terrifying Molly Weasley‘s revenge.
SUCH a satisfying ending. I‘m sad it‘s almost over but what a story!! ⚡️⚡️⚡️
But most of you already knew that 😉

Thank you so much @Linsy for hosting #potteraday!! It would have been hard to read this last book alone.

Thanks for the tag @Eggs 😘

I‘m happy to play 🤸🏼‍♀️ #wondrouswednesday

🎁 wow ok! That‘s a huge question that could be answered on so many levels!! I guess I‘ll stick to the basics - my family which def includes my soul sister Andry 💓

❤️📖 my mom, my German Grandmama & the many fun hours of audiocoloring with my brother🖍

🪑 being able to help people work through their problems is equally challenging & rewarding

Hast du Lust @julesG ? 😉

Eggs Love this post ❣️ Thanks so much for playing 📚🥳🙏🏻 2y

#potteraday * The Silver Doe *

Wow loved yesterday‘s chapter. SO much happening! Just when I expected things to go from bad to worse... what a relief this chapter brings. And chuckles towards the end, with a fierce Hermione bringing it ON!! !

Now - on to today‘s chapter!! 🙌🏼

#potteraday Chapter 17: Bathilda‘s Secret 👵🏻

Noooo 😱 did not see that coming!!! Scary stuff and pretty gross if you think about it.
I‘m SO glad we‘re in this together, fellow buddy readers, it is hard to read.

Are we continuing on - a chapter a day @Linsy ?

#Potteraday *The Bribe*

So much happening in this chapter!! Loved every word. Harry has certainly grown up a bit.
And who knew we‘d end up *liking* Kreacher!!

And then the last paragraph. Noooo 😱 not UMBRIDGE!!!!

#potteraday Chapter 8 *A real wizard‘s wedding*

🥂💫🥂

Such a fun, sort of dreamy chapter with beautifully crafted descriptions... and then it turns so dramatic towards the end!!
I do love the descriptive, dialogue-y chapters!

Whoa this book is really moving along quickly!

Chapter 2 was unexpectedly touching but then these past two chapters have been breathtaking!
And already so sad 😔

Reading today‘s chapter for #potteraday on my favorite bench by the Rhine river, I saw a ship from Holland pass by, called Grindelwald.

Ha! A sign! Possibly from Dumbledore himself!

Angry at yet another horrible piece of writing by the atrocious Rita Skeeter 😡

Linsy Ohmygosh, I love this!!! 2y

Hey Littens of #potteraday 👓🥢🦉

I‘m ready to join you for buddyreading Deathly Hallows!

I‘m an actual PotterVirgin, been reading the series for the magical 1st time over the course of two years - absolutely enchanted by it, as I knew I would be.

Have stayed away from the movies or any spoilers so really don‘t know what‘s ahead.
I‘ve been waiting for you to catch up with me before starting this last book.
I‘m scared! Can‘t do this alone 🥺

CoffeeAndABook 👆🏼 especially after what happened at the end of Half-Blood Prince. Had not been expecting that 😩 2y

Thanks for the tag @Cinfhen !

1️⃣ Took the buzzfeed test & am water 🌊 I‘m happy with that but would have spontaneously answered air... 💭

2️⃣ the tagged book I‘m reading right now! I‘ve been buddy reading a lot of Fantasy lately and fun as that Is, the tagged book is satisfying a deep yearning ... for change, for opening up, traveling far, lots of nature...

3️⃣ MAYBE YOU SHOULD TALK TO SOMEONE by Lori Gottlieb!!

#wondrouswednesday @Eggs

Eggs Agree that yearnings are real and certain books answer the call 📚🤗💕 2y
