18491556_10210068626939906_1332636822739135067_oHello 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.”

    Hi Kristina! Thanks for checking out my blog. I’d love to keep in touch and chat with you. I have taught English for the past 15 years so I certainly can relate to your career aspirations. I look forward to keeping up with what you’re reading 😉
