Armchair BEA 2016 ~ Introductions

Armchair BEA Home

1.  What is the name you prefer to use? Kristina D

2.  How long have you been a book blogger? A little over 5 years. I have always done this as more of a hobby or just a place to vent and keep track of thoughts on the books I'm reading.

3.  Have you participated in ABEA before? Yes, I think this will be the third time.

4. What is your favorite genre and why? Paranormal Romance and Urban Fantasy. Really any fantasy. Why, because when I read it is to escape everything around me at the moment. I want something I can get lost in that doesn't have a bunch of real world problems.

5.  If you could choose three characters to have lunch with, who would they be and why? Acheron from Sherrilyn Kenyon's Dark Hunters, he has been around forever and I'm sure has plenty of stories to tell.
Bran from Patricia Briggs' Mercy Thompson and Alpha & Omega series. Same reason as above. My favorite character from these series and would have plenty to talk about.
Alexia from Gail Carriger's Parasol Protectorate (or Lord Akeldama)They both just seem like they would be a lot of fun to spend some time with.

6. Do you have a favorite book? If you cannot choose a favorite book of all time, pick your favorite book today - just this second.
Not a specific book but Kenyon's Dark Hunters series is my favorite series. There have been a few along the way that I haven't enjoyed as much but this is one of the few that I still buy right away. Another favorite is J.D. Robb's In Death series.

7. What book are you most excited for on your TBR? What are you most intimidated by? 
Excited to read This Savage Song by Victoria Schwab. I've liked most of her books and look forward to when she releases a new series.
Most intimidated: Not sure if intimidated is the right word but I tend to put off finishing series. I just cannot bring myself to read the final book in some of my favorite series. Usually this is because I've read too many that just end badly and don't want the same fate for my faves.


  1. Nice to meet you.

    First time participant. I love meeting other bloggers.

    We have been blogging almost the same number of years. It is such fun, and book bloggers are the best.

    Have a fun week.

  2. Lunch with Alexia and Lord Akeldama would be hilarious, I think. I love those two so much. Always getting into trouble. And I understand what you mean about finishing a favorite series. I've been let down by a few. But I also put off reading the last book because I don't want the story to be over.

  4. Oooh, I started This Savage Song. It's actually quite interesting! Have fun this week!

  5. Happy Armchair BEA! I'm with you about not finishing series right away. Sometimes I'm worried they won't end the "right" way or that I will miss the series once it is over.

  6. Happy Armchair BEA! I've got so many series that I haven't finished reading that it's kind of ridiculous. I like binge-reading them, but when I have to wait a long time between books I procrastinate on coming back to them.

    Hope you enjoy Elantris!
