Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?
My name is Kristen and I've been blogging for 4 and a half years. I started blogging while my husband was on deployment, it was a great reading community that kept me occupied while he was gone. Since then I've stuck with it. I'm blogging from the beautiful sunny California.

What genre do you read the most? 
I read Paranormal Romance the most, I love reading it because of the intense romance but also the clever plot lines based around, vampires, werewolves, fae, magic and more!

What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year?
One of the best books I read last year was Bronze Gods by A.A. Aguirre. So far this year, would be Night Broken by Patricia Briggs.

What book would you love to see as a movie?
I would love to see the Mercy Thompson series by Patricia Briggs be turned into a movie. I love the idea of a coyote shape shifter being raised and protected by a wolf pack. The story lines are always clever and intense.


What do you think of when you think of literature? Classics, contemporary, genre, or something else entirely?  Feel free to share a list of your favorites, break down your favorite genre, feature your favorite authors, and be creative about all things literature in general.

This is a hard one, but I think of literature as genre first, because there are so many books out there that have different focuses.  Below are a couple of my favorite genres and titles!

Paranormal Romance Favorite

Urban Fantasy Favorite

New Adult Favorite

Young Adult Favorite


  1. Yay for Poison Study! I still need to read the other two though...

  2. I totally love How to Flirt with a Naked Vampire. I have the other two in the series, but have not made my way to them. Gaf!

  3. I love Poison study :D I can't wait for the upcoming sequels! And 4.5 years of blogging, that is so long. What an accomplishment :)

  4. I've not yet read any of those books you listed. I think I am going to have to do something about that because Patricia Briggs is awesome. I have heard so many good things about that book!

    I love how there are so many diverse backgrounds in book blogging. The community is just amazing.

  5. Looks like we both started blogging at about the same time. Hope you have fun at armchair BEA!

  6. Oh my gosh yes on the Mercy Watson books into a movie...or a T.V. series. They would be great. Glad you stuck with the blogging community...there really is nothing quite like it. Enjoy your week with Armchair BEA~!

  7. I also love the blogging community. I think it's one of the main reasons I'm still blogging after four years. Or maybe it's just a habit by now?

    Happy ABEA!

  8. Oh, PNR is one of my favorite genres to read too. Between it and UF I don't have (make) time for much else ;) And the Mercy Thompson series is one of my favorites!
