Getting to know Kristina + Giveaway winner!

Good evening, everyone! :) I know I said I would post all the questions and answers a while ago, but I wanted to give more people the chance to ask me questions. Plus, my left arm has been in a brace for a week and a half thanks to tendonitis. I am mostly better now, though!

So without further ado, here are all the questions and answers! (And at the end I'll announce The Mulligan Man PDF winner!)

Q: What is your favorite genre to read, and who is your favorite author?
A: I love anything with romance. Especially paranormal romance. I have a lot of favorite authors including: Richelle Mead, Meg Cabot, Rachel Caine, Deena Remiel, Monique O'Connor James, Ednah Walters, Gracen Miller, Kristine Cheney, Jennifer Laurens, Colleen Houck, Suzanne Collins, Ellen Hopkins, Jeanine Frost, Karen Kincy, and so many more. :)

Q: What is your favorite line from any book?
A: Again, I don't have a 'favorite' line from a book. I like anything romantic or funny. Jeanine Frost's Night Huntress Series has a lot of really funny lines. 

Q: Are there any type of paranormal creatures or settings you'd like to see in a book?
A: I love Vampires, Angels, Werewolves...All that jazz. As for setting, I really like books that are set outside of the US because I love to travel.

Q: What is your day job?
A: I work at a Catholic school and am a full time college student!

Q: What is the first book you can remember reading! What is your all time favorite book?
A: That's a tough question! There was this one Clifford the Big Red dog book when I was little. I remembered it because it was one of the books in my classroom.

Again with the favorites!!! Once again, I have a lot of favorites. I can tell you the series I've read the most throughout my life is the 1-800-Where-R-you series by Meg Cabot. LOVE those books. I also really like Shadow Kiss by Richelle Mead. (Book three in the Vampire Academy series)

Q: What made you want to start a blog - and why a book reviewing blog?
 A: I decided to start a book blog when Monique O'Connor James asked me if I wanted to do a character interview with Jess and Justin from her book The Keepers. I'd seen other do character interviews and thought it would be a lot of fun. The only problem was that the blog I was currently posting from was created to be an online diary of sorts, and no one visited. So, Kristina's Books and More was born. :)

Q: What genres are you willing to review? Any certain ones you'd love to read?
A: I'd be willing to review anything. I love anything with romance, adventure, humor, paranormal, ect!

Q: What is your favourite colour, and why?
A: I've always really liked the color blue because it was the color of the sky, and of water sometimes. Plus, my eyes are blue. My mom's favorite color is blue, too. Maybe I got it from her.

Q: What question hasn't been asked that should have been?
A: I'm suprised that someone didn't ask what I have recently read, am currently reading, or how many books are on my to be read pile. I'll answer those!

Recently read: The Night Huntress and Night Huntress World series by Jeanine Frost, The Keepers by Monique O'Connor James, Trinity by Deena Remiel, Tiger's Curse and Tiger's Quest by Colleen Houck, Fairy Casanova by Gracen Miller, and Spartan Heart Parts 1&2 by Kristine Cheney! (I reccomend all of these fabulous books!)

Currently reading: Happily Never After (a short) by Jeanine Frost and Power of the Moon by Tina  Carreiro

I have around a hundred books in my TBR pile. It seems like everytime I finish a book, I add two more in it's place! So many good books, not nearly enough time to read them!

Q: Favorite band?
A: Green Day

Q: Favorite Movie(s)?
A: All three Lord of the Rings movies. (I have all three books, but haven't read them yet.)

Want to know more? Here's the link to the interview I did with Monique O'Connor James. That's right! She interviewed me! :D

And now for the winner of The Mulligan Man PDF:

Katrina W!!!!
I'll send you the PDF as soon as Monique sends it to me! :)

Question: So how many of you saw the last Harry Potter movie last weekend? I saw it at midnight and I cried like a baby! Excellent movie!

Happy reading!
