Another Sunshine Blogger Award


I was nominated by Nerd Narration for another Sunshine Blogger Award.  I am so bad at keeping up on these, so it’s taken me a little longer than I hope to get to this.  Thank you so much for the nomination and I hope you check out her blog.

What is one of your favorite book quotes?

“Can you understand? Someone, somewhere, can you understand me a little, love me a little? For all my despair, for all my ideals, for all that – I love life. But it is hard, and I have so much – so very much to learn.”
― Sylvia Plath, The Journals of Sylvia Plath


If you won a free plane ticket to anywhere in the world, where would you take it and what is the first thing you’d do when you there?

There are so many places I want to go, but I would have to say Italy is pretty high up on my list.  I have no idea what I would do after checking in, but I guarantee that I would plan the trip out with things to do the whole time.


What is your favorite underrated/under reviewed book?

I’m not sure I have one favorite, but one of the books that I loved was Points of Departure by Emily O’Beirne.  It only has 158 ratings on Goodreads.


What celebrity would cause death by fangirling if you got to meet them on the street?

I think it would be my old crush, Pete Wentz.  I would still freak out if I ran into him somewhere.


What is your favorite 2018 read so far?

I can never pick a favorite.  It’s really impossible and I’ve read so many 5 star books already this year.  One of my top reads didn’t come out this year, but I read it in 2018.  That was The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo.  A few others are Shadow of the Fox, Obsidio, Reign of the Fallen, Ace of Shades, Ash Princess, Sky in the Deep, Scream All Night, A Touch of Gold, Dare You To Lie, and so many more.


What is the last band you saw in concert?

The last concert I went to was Warped Tour (I have three more coming up though).  The final band I saw that day was Waterparks.


What’s the last book that made you cry?

I think I cried in another one more recently, but hard cried was The Seven Husband of Evelyn Hugo.


What’s the current most played song on your playlist?

I don’t really use any playlists, but it’s likely something by With Confidence or State Champs.  I listen to them all the time.


If you were going to get a tattoo based on a book, what would you get and why?

I am struggling to figure this one out right now.  I think I want a general book tattoo and probably not something from a specific book.  But I’m not sure.  I’ve been trying to figure this out for a couple years already.


What is your favorite meal?  Your go to dinner if money wasn’t an option?

I love Mexican food and eat that most often.  If money wasn’t an issue, I would order filet mignon.  I love a good steak.


Who is your fictional crush?  And who would you cast in real life to play them?

Thomas from Stalking Jack and Nik from Gemina.  I have no idea who I would cast to play them though.  I don’t know that anyone can live up to the expectations I have of them in my mind.



This was a lot of fun and a bit tough.  I’m not good at tagging people, so if you want to do this, consider yourself tagged.  You can answer the same questions above.

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).

  1. Yay! Thank you so much for doing this tag! A few things:
    1) I went to Italy this past June and it was everything I’d hoped it would be and more! I truly hope you get to go one day! I’m happy to help you plan some “must sees!”
    2) I’m literally listening to Fall Out Boy at the moment so seeing Pete’s name made me laugh.
    3) I LOVE State Champs. I never hear anyone talk about them so that’s so cool to find another fan! *Rushes off to listen to Secrets based off this post*
    4) Love all the book recs.
    Thanks again for answering the questions! =D

      1. I’m glad they recommended them to you! I found them years ago in AP’s bands you need to know. I think it was when their first full length album came out. They’re so good live, too. One of my absolute favorite live bands.
