Hello and thank you for stopping my and investigating my shenanigans. My name is Kristina and I am from San Diego, California. I am a recent college graduate! Yay me! I majored in English (makes sense I know!) and minored in Linguistics and just earned my teaching credential. So I can teach High School English (bold, I know!) and am about to start my first year in the classroom.
I love, love, love reading. I discovered the world of audiobooks a while back and have been obsessed with listening while I am on the go (in my car, on the way to class, even in line at the bank). My kids would say I am a little too obsessed but that’s okay with me. I am also an aspiring writer and am working on my first novel. Slowly. Very. Slowly.
I love curling up and escaping into a great book. I like to read ARC (Advance Reader Copies) and do not mind books that are not edited to death. I believe humans are incredibly flawed so who am I to expect perfection? Seriously, I am in it for the story more than the grammar (*gasp* from English teachers everywhere). So please join me while I escape into some pretty awesome books. While I am brutally honest (blame that on my writer’s workshops) I know that authors are people that present us with their babies. I won’t be cruel or unnecessarily picky about the small details. But if you give me a schizophrenic character that is not supposed to be schizophrenic, I am going to let you know. Just saying! 🙂
I agree with William Styron when he said:
“A great book should leave you with many experiences, and slightly exhausted at the end. You live several lives while reading.”
