I am terrible at nominating people.  If you haven’t gotten this award yet, please consider yourself nominated.




What is the favorite book blog name you’ve seen?

I don’t really have a favorite name.  I’ve seen so many creative blog names that I love.  I could never list them all.


Who is your favorite book boyfriend/girlfriend?

It changes, but I think Nik from Gemina.  I love the bad boys and I’m not ashamed to admit it.  I’ve had a few that I’ve adored.


Do you count comics/manga/graphic novels in your goodreads totals?  Why or why not?

I’ve just started reading graphic novels and I count them.  I’m reading and the books are listed on goodreads.  So I think they should count.


What is your favorite musical (or band if you don’t like musicals)?  

I’ve only gone to small/local musicals.  So I’ll go with bands.  I love so many.  My favorites right now are State Champs and With Confidence. 


What is the most important thing to know before starting a book blog?

I think it’s just to have fun and don’t make it into a chore.  Scheduling posts has been a life saver for me.  That way I don’t have to work on the blog every day.  I can do 4-6 posts all at once and schedule them.


Cats, dogs, birds, rodents, reptiles, or fish?

I love all animals, but I’m allergic to cats and some smaller mammals.  Dogs are number one for me.  Reptiles would be number two.  I have both.


What is your dream career? 

I’m 40 now and I don’t really plan to go back to school.  But I did want to work in psychology when I was younger.  Especially forensics/criminal.  Anything with science would have been cool, too.  


Do you get any book boxes?  Which ones?

I don’t have any subscriptions, but I do buy them monthly.  I’ve been trying out new ones as well as getting some of my favorites fairly often.  I was subscribed to Owl Crate for awhile.


What’s your favorite post from another blogger?

I don’t really have one.  I love discussion posts, book hauls, and book reviews. 


Best candle scent?

It depends on the time of the year and my mood.  In the spring/summer, I like beachy and fruity scents.  In the fall/winter, I love baked good scents.  I’m not big on floral scents, but I don’t mind some of them.


Do you have other book related platforms?

I have a facebook page, instagram, and twitter.  My links are all on the side of the blog.  I hope you follow me!



Thank you again for the nomination!

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.
