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 got a sampler from Netgalley however I thought it was the actual whole book (don’t you hate it when that happens!) and I do hate to read bits so now I’m like do I read the sampler, do I wait. Ugh a bookworm life is hard!!!!
