  1. Thanks for nominating me! Great answers 😀 I know exactly how you feel about rearranging bookshelves. I hate the actual job, but love the satisfaction of seeing them neat and orderly!

    What will you be baking this Christmas? 🙂

    1. You’re welcome!
      The satisfaction is great, I love it, and will be re-arranging them after Christmas!
      So far I’m thinking of baking cinnamon rolls, christmas spice biscuits, la buche de noel, and many more! What are you planing to bake?

  2. Thanks for nominating me Lu! Gilmore Girls? My friend LOVES that show. I do not get a day without her talking about it. When you say your TBR is 91 books long, is that just books you own? Ya know, like some people’s goodreads TBR is their actual TBR and I don’t know how they manage. I have over 500 on my TBR on Goodreads. But, don’t feel if it’s 91 physical books, I have like 50 (if even) books that I’ve actually read. The rest are all on my TBR. I’m quite the impulse buyer.

    1. You’re welcome: ) 91 books on goodreads, it was more, but then I went through and through “do I really want to read this book?” no nail it down to the books that I REALLY want to read. I think I own under 10 books that I want to read, as I hardly get the chance to impulse buy!

      1. Ah, well, you’re doing a lot better than me. That’s a good plan! I’d probably say yes to all of them though. But, at the same time, I don’t really mind having a 500+ Goodreads TBR cause I don’t actually own them. So, I don’t feel as bad. That’s really good. It’s good you haven’t picked up the bad habit. I’m quite the impulse buyer. And then most of the time I immediately regret it afterwards… whoops.

        1. Today I had a bit of an impulse buy, it was only the one extra book, but I can’t let the impulse buys continue!! I must have restraint!!
