My goal is to read at least 5 middle grade books.  I have a TBR, but not sure if I’ll stick to it.  I’m hoping to read A Taste of Magic, Aru Shah and the Nectar of Immortality, Moonwalking, Witchlings, and Premeditated Myrtle.   I have a few others that might fit the prompts.


Are you joining this challenge?  If so, let me know which team you end up on.

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).
