#WeekendCoffeeShare: If We Were Having Coffee… On August 7

Hello my lovely booklovers,

how are you? Welcome to the Weekend Coffee Share, a blog hop by the lovely Diana over at Part Time Monster. Every weekend we get together for virtual coffees and a little casual chat. How has this past week been for you?

My week has been A Very Harry Potter Week. Even if you’re not a Potterhead, you’ve probably heard that Harry Potter and the Cursed Child was released last Sunday. I had my copy pre-ordered from Amazon Prime, because I didn’t trust the local shop here in Germany to carry the English language version of the book. But unfortunately, there was a problem with the delivery, and my book didn’t arrive until Wednesday, despite a promised delivery date of Monday 8when then got moved to Tuesday, and then Wednesday night). But I don’t seem to be the only one who had that problem – it seemed to have been universal.

So yes, as soon as I got my book, I read it through in two-and-a-half hours. I posted a review, though it contains spoilers, so be warned if you still want to read it! But if you’ve read it already, we’d probably discuss the book over coffee today!

If we were having coffee, we’d stop by my best mate’s house in Wuppertal, as he invited me over for coffee and cake. And he had great news! He and his fiancée have finally set a date, and I now have exactly two months to lose some weight and find a nice dress. I’ll also be their photographer, so that’ll be a lot of responsibility.

If we were having coffee, I’d tell you that I am trying to get back onto journaling. Just to be creative now and then. But it’s so hard to start a brand new journal with all its blank pages. I’ve made a list, though, of different things to write about. I’m not gonna use it as a diary, but as a record of things I like, don’t like, think about. Do you keep a creative journal? I’m currently busy printing out planner stickers and backgrounds to use for a pop of colour.

If we were having coffee today, I’d tell you that since I got into Australian Literature more (thank you, MA thesis), I’ve ordered quite a few books from Australia which are not available in Europe yet. Just a shame that books in Australia and New Zealand seem to be quite expensive. As much as I’d love to one day move to Australia, I think I need to save up for a proper book budget at this rate!

That’s it from me for this week’s Coffee Share. Check out the other Weekend Coffee Sharers, I’m sure they’d love to see you too!

Thank you for having coffee with me. Same time, next week?
