Oy! Happy Saturday!
I’ve been waffling on what sort of post to write for today. I flipped through like eight ideas before actually landing on one I vibed with. Waffling as a verb: one of April’s talents. I should probably mention that today is my birthday. I wanted to do something birtdhay-centric and fun but what would that be??? And then the idea struck me. Like every good good blog post idea, it came to me in the deepest, darkest hours of the night when I should have been sleeping.
Birthdays = cake, and cake = candles. Furthermore, candles = wishes, meaning birthday = wishes. Wishes = being transported to fantasy worlds. But make it a bookish list. Foolproof logic right there.
In honor of my birthday, I decided share a exclusive, one of a kind, super secret fun fact with y’all: I like pirates.
Shocking, I know. And since I love pirates I would want to be transported to the world of the Fable duology. I mean, Young brings you halfway there with her vivid imagery, but I would really love to go those extra miles and fully immerse myself in the dredging and sea-life and whatnot.

Hi! Is this the place to find summer camp vibes and canoes? Yes? Perfect, then I’ve found You Have a Match!

Scavenger hunt for cash prize. Think senior assassin, but make it clue based. Sounds like an absolute blast to me.

Murder mystery and banter. Sounds absolutely glorious. And if we want to be really wild and follow the whole series I will get the original two perks as well as travel. Yes yes yes.

I mean, going to a Con right now would be absolutely delightful. I would also love to sample something from the Magic Pumpkin, because that alone would be iconic.

Meeting the Crows. I want that. Let’s be real, I’d probably go down pretty quickly here, but to meet the Crows it would be worth it. Bonus points for tagging along on the heist.
Talking books. Magical libraries. Named swords. Sold!

Traveling abroad has never sounds so amazing. After more than a year of going absolutely nowhere, a trip would be positively magical. The baked goods wouldn’t hurt either.
And with that, my 16 candles are officially used! I have an ice cream cake to get back to, so this list is officially a wrap!
Have you read any of these books? What do you think? Which fictional worlds would you want to travel to???
