  1. Oooh this is cool! I'd also love to travel to Ireland. It looks so pretty. And mermaids/unicorns are excellent choices for fantasy creatures. Have to admit I AM quite partial to dragons, though ;)

    1. Thanks! Yes, it would be amazing to visit Ireland! Dragons are pretty cool, but I feel like I've never found a story where I really loved them, but maybe I will! Thanks for stopping by! :)

  2. Thanks for doing the tag! I'm a little surprised every time I see one, since I forgot to notify the people I tagged... oops.

    Also, I feel like knowing how to make popcorn on the stovetop is an important life skill (that I, unfortunately, do not have). I'm sure it comes in handy! And I'm really hungry for chocolate cake right now. Yum. And this post reminds me how impossibly alike we are, and also that I think I dropped that lovely email train we had going, um, months ago? Sorry. :/

    1. Thanks for tagging me!

      Yes, making popcorn on the stove top does come in handy! I prefer it to a popcorn maker because it's faster. Even the mention of chocolate cake makes me want some! My goal is to make the perfect chocolate cake with gluten-free flours someday! Don't worry about it! Life gets busy! I'll send you an email, we should catch up. :)

    I love making popcorn in one of those huge, really deep pans on the stove. It always tastes so much better than microwaved popcorn! Much less greasy and artificial.
    Ireland sounds like an awesome place to visit! I would love to go to New Zealand and see the Hobbit holes. :)

    1. It is awesome! I love working at a library! Yep, I like stove top popcorn a lot better than microwave popcorn - it's the best! New Zealand sounds incredible! I always seen to forget about it when making a travel wish list, but it's amazing! And the Hobbit holes are a big plus. :)

  4. I have been woefully behind on all my favorite blogs and only just now seeing this! Thank you so much for tagging me. You're so sweet!!! <333

    I don't have a specific way of organizing my books either! Which is funny, because I'm so OCD about things. But I think that's why. I go for making them look the best they can (matching sizes, colors, etc.) than organizing alphabetically by author or whatever.

    You need to read Stars Above if you still haven't yet. It's sooo good!!

    Ireland would be my dream place to travel as well. That and New Zealand. I mean, it's practically a fantasy world!

    Thanks again for tagging me! ^_^

    1. You're welcome!

      I do that will my books, too! Size and color are pretty much my only guidelines. I just got Stars Above at the library - I'm so excited to read it!! Yes, New Zealand is AMAZING! I would love to see it someday!
