My first year of law school is done, my transfer apps are complete—and, most importantly, the summer solecist has begun! That means the start of my summer reading tradition. My fellow Potterheads, are you with me?? #readingHarryPotter

rather_be_reading congrats! 👏👏 1mo
bewareofwords I‘ll be reading HP this summer too! I‘m planning to do the series in July—my first time listening to the audiobook. 1mo
Insearchofbooks @bewareofwords I love the audiobook. Stephen Fry is awesome 💜 1mo

If you‘ve seen all the movies then WHY DID YOU PUT YOURSELF IN THIS SITUATION IN THE FIRST PLACE. ITS LIKE ALL OF YOU WANT TO DIE. IS THAT THE PLOT TWIST? GAAAAAAAH

Is there some kind of requirement in horror that all of the characters deserve their circumstances? Even if you don‘t find the cave, you are both out-of-shape nerds trekking around in areas of the wilderness WHERE NO ONE WILL THINK TO LOOK FOR YOU. WHY.

I‘m only 35 pages in. But poor decision-making and a few racist jokes made by the characters have me second-guessing my forward marching. The awkward sentence-structure isn‘t helping, either. But...the book is bought. So...onward, I go!

Every horror movie, ever. That‘s why. Is there some kind of requirement in the horror genre that every “explorer into the unknown” be suicidally stupid? Am I supposed to be rooting for whatever evil lurks in the cave everyone is looking for?

Thoughts on the toilet...

theresidentromantic I believe that's covered under self defense, unless his murder is pre meditated and you go out stalking him. Then your lawyer has a decent defense, but you don't look like a victim anymore. 12mo
Ddzmini But how it was premeditated??? ... he could have tried and I just happened to be in that exact spot to perpetrate the murder when he was in fact going to murder me but I actually (in defending myself) murdered him first 🤨🧐 12mo
Insearchofbooks @theresidentromantic @Ddzmini Plus, are you ever really stalking your assassin? Obviously, they know you‘re there because they‘re stalking you! I was simply backed into a corner and had no choice but to defend my beautiful, delicate self by any means necessary. I HAVE TO LIVE WITH TORTURING AND MURDERING MY WOULD-BE ASSASSIN FOR THE REST OF MY LIFE! *delicate tears that I haven‘t been practicing producing* 12mo

So, I‘m not the most sensitive person in the world. I don‘t know what you say to someone who crashed a car, killed his best friend, and become horrifically disfigured and crippled as a result. But I‘m going to go out on a limb here and say, “NOT THAT.”

Guys! I was looking at the list of titles in the Coffeehouse Mystery series? There‘s a Christmas book! Christmas cozies are the best cozies 💜

The same author also has a series about a haunted bookshop! That will probably be my summer series.

This book is awesome! The writing is great, the story is pretty decent, and it is packed with coffee-making tips and instructions. There is even some West Village, NYC history If you love cozies and coffee, this book is for you. I am off to read the sequel—there are 15!

Bourriquet76 Saving this one! I like cozies. 1y

“No, in real life, a man and a woman might flirt until the cows come home. They might appreciate each other, be attracted to each other—but that was the end of it. Boring as all get-out, but that was as far as these relationships usually got” (180). To the older littens, is that true?

84 pages in and in love! The coffee tips are woven throughout the story (as opposed to being placed at the end with the recipes). I have already learned the proper way to store coffee and the proper name for pour-over brews (the “Melitta method”)!

AmyG My daughter makes coffee like she is performing surgery. ;) 1y
Insearchofbooks @AmyG She might like this book! It‘s definitely made for coffee lovers! 1y
Chelleo This sounds good! Stacking it! I started drinking coffee in my late 20s as a result of an ex who worked for Mellita USA. I could kick myself for getting rid of my old pour overs and filters because I‘ve taken them back up 😩 1y
Insearchofbooks @Chelleo that just sounds like a good excuse to go shopping for coffee wares! 1y
