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. May is just flooded with great books, isn’t it?? So many of these are on my tbr. So far I’ve only read Hurricane Summer. I just posted my review yesterday. I had very mixed feelings about it, but I’m glad I picked it up. 🙂
