Kristin took the time to fill out our short questionnaire, so we could really get to know her, as a thank you for all the hard work she does crafting her magical photos! Make sure you click her ticket above and follow her on IG and show her some much deserved love! Without further ado.... let's dive in to all the Pieces of Kristins Reading Life!
Question 1: What sparked your love of reading? (Give me all the deets!)
I was a reader all of my life, but when I was a teen, I picked up Twilight when it first came out, and it was like I fell into the perfect world! I couldn’t get enough! After that, my love for fantasy reads just continued to grow!
Question 2: What book could you read over and over again and never get tired of?
Twilight is my all time comfort read. I also could always reread ACOTAR and Vampire Academy!
Question 3: When did you start blogging? For books or otherwise?
I actually started blogging years ago as an ASD mom blogger. Since then, I realized I really wanted something that way just for me, an outlet for creating content that I found fun to escape into!
Question 4: WHY did you start Bookstagramming (or Book Blogging/Toking etc.) in particular? What drives you (other than the love of books LOL)? The community? The creative side? The review writing part? Taking photos?
I started during the lockdown last year as a way to communicate with like minded people, and it just grew into what it is today! I absolutely love everything about it. I do photography as a hobby, so it fit right in with what I already do. I love the community and all of the Indie authors and new books I’ve discovered!
Question 5: Name a book you think doesn’t get enough hype in any of the na/adult fantasy/pnr romance genres! Indie or mainstream publishing!
The Fae Rising series by Miranda Lyn! It’s so full of adventure and the characters are so well developed!
(You can start reading the first book in the series, Blood and Promise here!)
Question 6: What are you currently reading? Bonus: What’s up next?
Currently reading Ember of Night! My next read is To Kill a Kingdom!
Question 7: What’s your favorite sub-genre of fantasy? (References if you need them: https://www.papermythsmedia.com//genreandheatlevelguides)
I enjoy high fantasy, urban fantasy, and always love paranormal romance😍
Question 8: How about your favorite tropes? (Examples: Enemies to lovers? Fated Mates, Love Triangle, Fairytale Retelling, Assassins, Pirates, Thieves etc.)
Enemies to lovers, retellings, kidnapped brides 😂
Final Question: Last but not least… Who’s your wildest dream unicorn author to work with/receive an arc of their book/do a tour with?
SJM (Sarah J. Maas). I would die if I managed to get one of her ARCs.
