Sunshine Blogger Award




Thank you to Life As A Simple Reader for nominating me for this award.

Since I’m catching up on all awards and tags, I’m not going to tag anyone else for this right now.  I honestly think everyone deserves this one, so consider yourself tagged.

4. List the rules and display the Sunshine Blogger Award logo on your post.




Questions & Answers:


What do you like to do other than reading/reviewing books/blogging?

I love listening to music and going to concerts.  I also breed leopard geckos, so that takes up a lot of my time.


Favorite movie you’ve watched this year?

I’m so behind on movies, but probably Guardians of the Galaxy 2 so far.


If you could have a chance to spend one day with your favorite author, who would it be?  And how would you spend the day with him/her?

It’s impossible for me to pick a favorite author, but today I’m going with Victoria Schwab.  I wouldn’t even care what we did.  I would love to just sit and talk with her about her characters and her life in general.


What’s a book you want everyone in the world to read, and why?

Pretty much everything, but it’s usually my newest favorite at the time.  While I love a ton of books, I tend to recommend something I’ve recently read and loved.  So for right now, it would be Warcross or Dare Mighty Things.  If I had to pick one that everyone should read, it would be The Hate U Give.  It’s just so powerful.


Favorite Dessert?

Creme Brulee.   I’m lucky if I have it once a year, but I love it.


Are you a sporty person?

Definitely not.  I was when I was younger, but not anyone.  I do like to watch some sports, but not participate.


What is the weirdest food you ever tried?

I’m not very adventurous when it comes to food.  I’m super picky, so I generally don’t try too many weird things.  I guess one would be these potato avocado appetizers from Stone Brewery in Escondido.  I can’t remember exactly what they were, but it wasn’t something I would normally order.  I ended up loving them.


Empire State Building or Big Ben?

While I would love to visit both, I’m definitely picking Big Ben.


Favorite Fashion Brands?

I don’t really have any for clothes anymore.  When I was younger/thinner, I had quite a few, but not really now.  For handbags, I usually go with Marc Jacobs though.  There is just something I love about the style and quality.  Same brand for sunglasses.


If you could work for your most favorite publisher, what would it be?

I would probably go with Harper/Epic Reads.  I love watching their videos and they work with a lot of authors I adore.


Mr. Darcy or Heathcliff?

Neither?  I’m not sure.  I’m not a huge fan of classic romances and tend to like newer bad boys in books.  Especially the funny, sarcastic ones.  Give me someone like Thomas from Stalking Jack the Ripper or Nik from Gemina any day.

I'm Kristi. I'm a wife, mom, and grandma. I have been breeding leopard geckos for ten years. I love to read and have been trying to review more books (the reason for this blog besides wanting to talk about books with everyone). I also love music and going to concerts, mostly punk and pop punk.
