I was nominated for the Liebster Award!


Libester is a German word meaning beloved or dearest. The Libester Award is for your favorite or beloved bloggers who deserve some love in their lives. It is a fun way to get to know your favorite bloggers. And to learn about the blogger behind the blog. You can also promote other bloggers through this award.




I was nominated by Annalee at Buttons Book Reviews.  Thank you Annalee!


The rules:


Share the link for blogger who nominated you.

Answer the 11 questions.

Nominate 11 bloggers for the award.

Ask them 11 questions that you come up with.


What is your least favorite character type? (you cannot say the villians)

I love the bad boys, but the ones that are romantic with good hearts.  I can’t help it.  I’m a sucker for them in every book I read.


What is a book you hate that everyone seems to love?

I rarely hate a book I read.  I do tend to think about books years after reading them and finding things I didn’t like.  50 Shades of Gray comes to mind.  I liked it when I read it, but now I think of all the things in it that bothered me.


If you could travel to a place in time for 1 hour, what would it be?

Probably Woodstock.  I wouldn’t want to deal with the crowds for a long time, but it would be an awesome thing to be a part of.  I love music and the whole hippy, free love vibe.


What is your Patronus? 

I know I took this test, but I can’t remember what it was. Something I wouldn’t have thought to pick.  I’ll have to do the test again and see if I get the same thing.


If you could jump into any book in the world, what would it be and why?

I’ll go with what most people pick and say Harry Potter.  Why? Magic.  It’s just a cool world and I would love to go to school at Hogwarts.  I love most fantasy worlds in books, but so many seem scary, too.


If you can have any pet in the world, real or fictional, what would it be and why?

For a real animal, I would probably go with a sloth.  I have no idea why, but I just love their faces so much.  I’m a huge animal lover, so I would probably be good with having a whole zoo.  For fictional, probably a dragon.  But a small one.  I keep and breed reptiles and I think most of us dream of having a pet dragon.


If you suddenly had to leave and could only bring one item, what would it be and why?

If we skip people and animals, I would probably go with pictures. My old ones that can’t be replaced.  I love photos and the memories they bring up.


What movie or tv show would you turn into a YA book or series?

I’m not really sure.  Probably something horror related.  A lot of the shows I watch are already based on books.   For something YA, maybe One Tree Hill.  I still love that one. Halloween could maybe be made into a cool series rewritten for a YA crowd.


If you had to turn your life into a book, what would the book be called?

Why can’t things just go right for once?  I’m not sure.  I’m not very creative.


Paperback or Ebook?

I’m ok with either.  I like hardcovers for my shelves.  Paperbacks are good for reading, but I do love my kindle.


Cat or Dog?

I’m allergic to cats, so definitely dog.  I have three.


My questions:

1  What is your favorite book or series?

2  Were you an early reader or did you start later in life?

3  If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?

4  What is your dream job?

5  Do you watch a lot of TV?  If so, what are your favorite current shows?

6  Do you like to travel?  If so, where are you going next?

7  How long have you had a blog?

8  Do you like to get ARCs?  I know some people get annoyed by the pressure of reviewing them.  If you do like them, where do you request most often?

9  Any tips for new bloggers?

10  What is your favorite holiday?

11  What is your favorite fantasy world?


I’m going to nominate based on who comments on my blog a lot (or likes posts) and who the most recent e-mails are from.  I’m bad at remembering names, so I need something to look at to pick. It’s totally cool if you don’t want to do this (I’m struggling with keeping up with tags myself).

My name is Kristi and I review books and mod on TBR and Beyond on Facebook. I love to travel and go to concerts. I've been married for over 20 years. I listen to a lot of pop punk. Otherwise, I'm pretty boring. We do have four grandchildren now and try to see them monthly since they don't live close. I read mostly YA and adult mystery/thrillers. I also read a lot of middle grade and some adult romance. You can also find me on facebook, twitter, and instagram (don't post often).
