Random Fridays: Travel Bucket List: The Rest of the World

Random Friday is hosted by Awkwordly Emma.

The last Random Friday was Travel Bucket List: North America. I wrote a pretty long list for that one. The post today will not be any shorter! I'm just going to list the countries, not particular cities for most of this list, just because there are too many places I want to visit in each country. These are not listed in any particular order.

The #1 place I want to visit.

Rome. Venice. Tuscany. I mean, who wouldn't want to visit here?

Paris, France
I feel this is an obvious choice.

I would love to go there!

There are a lot of  places I would like to visit there.

I think it would be fun.

Barcelona, Spain
It looks beautiful there!

Again, there's a lot of places here I would like to visit.

Where would you like to travel? :)

Top Seven Favorite Things to Drink While Reading

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by That Artsy Reader Girl blog.

Hi, everyone! The topic this week is Top Ten Favorite Things to Eat/Drink While Reading. I don't eat food while reading, because I'm too worried that I'll drop crumbs into the book (One of the grossest things with a book is when you open it and someone else's food falls in your lap.), but I do drink while I read! So here are seven things that I love to drink when I'm reading a book.

Top Ten Seven Favorite Things to Drink While Reading

This is the #1 thing I drink the most.

Apple Juice
Ever since I was a little kid I've loved apple juice.

Orange Juice
I've gotta have my vitamin C!

A Slush From Sonic
THESE ARE THE BEST. Seriously. I have so many favorites from them. If you haven't had a Sonic slush, I highly recommend them!

Hot Chocolate
My favorite drink in Winter! I really love dark chocolate hot chocolate.

Orange Soda 
My #1 weakness when it comes to soda.

Strawberry Soda
Almost tied with orange soda, honestly.

What do you like to drink while you read? :)

Mini Review: The Singing Rock & Other Brand New Fairy Tales

Review: The Singin Rock & Other Brand New Fairy Tales by Nathaniel Lachenmeyer and Simini Blocker

A genie just wants a chance to grant a wish to the frog who accidentally let him out of his lamp—meanwhile, the frog just wants to be left alone. A witch is tormented by the cheerful (and awful) singing of a persistent bard, but when she finally snaps and turns him into a rock, he just keeps on singing—somehow the power of terrible music overcomes all magic. A wizard wants a pet. An ogre just wants to make beautiful art. Four original, wry, and utterly charming fairy tales comprise this new collection for young readers.

With a deft, lively text from Nathaniel Lachenmeyer and eye-popping, painterly art by Simini Blocker, The Singing Rock is the perfect read for kids who love a good yarn—and good comics!

Mini Review: I love anything that has to do with fairy tales, so as soon as I heard about this graphic novel, I knew I needed to read it. I'm happy I did! This was a delightful collection of new fairy tales, and I enjoyed reading all of them. My favorite was probably The Sorcerer's New Pet, but they were all good. I really loved the art in the book! I would love to read more graphic novels with this artists work. Overall, I highly recommend this book!

I checked this book out from my library.

Discussion: How Do You Organize Your Bookshelves?

Hi, everyone! Currently I'm trying to redo my bookshelves, and I was wondering how other people organize their shelves. I've seen people organize multiple ways.

By author. 
I think the most popular way to have the shelves organized.

By genre. 
At one point I did this.

By color. 
I think this is a really pretty way to have your shelves!

Also, do you add decorations to your shelf? Like funko pops, candles, postcards, etc.

And I'm sure there are more ways people organize their shelves. Personally, because I have too many books and not enough shelves, my books are pretty much just shoved anywhere on the shelf there's room. I try to keep all the books by one author together, and I keep all my library books in a milk crate (Which was my Mom's idea, and I love how it keeps them all together! Plus, I think it looks good.). But that's about the end of how I organize my shelves. I would love to have lots of bookshelves eventually, and to be able to organize them better, but I'm happy with how they look right now! I add decorations to my shelf, too!

Once I'm finished with redoing my shelves, I'll instagram a photo of they look.

How do you organize your bookshelves? Tell me! I would love to know. :)
