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. 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!!!!
