Just like with the other recent awards, I just wanted to post my answers, but I’m not nominating anyone right now.  Once I’m all caught up on awards, I will start nominating people again.  There would just be too many to pick right now.


Three Things About Me

I became a mom and grandma pretty young.  I had my daughter when I was 19 (almost 20).  I became a grandma at 39.   It’s definitely a weird thing with my family that hopefully will change.  My mom was born in 1957, I was born in 1977, my daughter was born in 1997, and my grandson was born in 2017.

I have pretty bad anxiety, especially social anxiety.  Even when I really want to do something, I get really anxious for days before and can barely sleep.  I have to force myself out of the house.  Once I’m gone, things get better, but I’m always worried about saying or doing something stupid around people.

I love music and have always felt connected to it.  My husband and I still go to concerts.  Maybe not as many as we’d like, but we try to go to at least two a year.  For awhile, we were going to 8-12 a year.  Music can affect my mood, too.


Questions and Answers 


If you could make one character come to life, who would it be?

How do I chose just one?  I guess I’m going with Hermione.  I adore her.


What was the first book you remember being obsessed with?

I know there were some when I was young, but the first major obsession was probably Twilight.  It was the book that made me start reading YA again.


Have your favorite genres changed over time?

Not too much really, but I have started liking sci-fi more.  I still read mostly YA.  I also love thrillers and fantasy.  I guess I don’t read many true crime books anymore and I used to mostly read those.


If you could cast yourself in a TV show, which one would it be?

For a newer show, Riverdale.  An older show, probably Veronica Mars or One Tree Hill.


You’re stuck in jail.  Your favorite Disney princess is in there with you.  Who is it, and what did you get jailed for?!

I have a tie between Belle & Ariel.  So one of them would be there.  As for what I got jailed for?  Probably touching animals I shouldn’t or trespassing somewhere.  Or for protesting.  Nothing violent though.


Thanks again for the nomination and thank you all for reading this!

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.

  1. I understand the anxiety I am the same way. I don’t come out of the house weeks at a time because I have panic attacks in large groups. It’s extremely hard and I have to force myself out when I have to go out. Plus that is amazing that all the years end in a 7. I love your answers on this post too 🙂
