10 for Tuesday: 10 Books Stuck in My Head Forever

Friday Fun: List of the Best Personality Tests to Find Out What Characters You Are Most Like!

Well, I'll admit it! If there is some sort of personality test posted on a blog or Facebook, I'll take it, always, unless they make me sign up for something. Otherwise, I'm all over it. Whatever the reason, for me at least, it's a bit of an obsession. Instead of trying to fight it, I'm embracing it! Actually, I'm blowing it up...
