About Me

This is probably going to be awkward...



I'm not very good at talking about myself.  I would much rather talk about BOOKS, makeup, my kids, Michael Fassbender...my adorable dog Bella.


Isn't she gorgeous?  I mean, who wouldn't want to talk about her?? Not to mention how talented my youngest is, because she painted that!!

Really, I hear "About Me" and I just want to come at y'all with:  I'm a Gemini, I enjoy classical music and the Bee Gee's but I also listen to Halsey, I have a makeup addiction (certified VIB Rouge here!), I like margaritas and hard cider (but I've slowed down now that I'm on Weight Watchers), birds, Snapchat, Lipsyncing to songs on Insta-Stories, etc.  It reads like an online dating profile. I clearly have problems...


Okay okay...my name is Christina and Tomes and Tequila is my baby.  What started out as strictly a Book Blog has turned into so much more. Although I'm still reviewing books, it is no longer my sole focus. I like to think that it's more about curating the most fabulous life you possibly can. I'm trying to do that myself, and sharing with you...my friends...everything I've found and what I'm learning along the way. I'm really working on improving my life, and focusing on loving myself and taking better care of my body, so I'm trying to incorporate more of that in my blog posts. You can expect to see more posts about planners and planning, makeup, lifestyle, diet and Weight Watchers. We'll see where this new direction takes us!

And of course my beloved book reviews. Because there will always be books in my life. And I still feel that there's a book out there for everyone.

I have been reviewing books on Goodreads for years now, and try to put the reviews I publish here on both that site and Amazon.  I have lived all over the place, so I really enjoy reading about different people and cultures...but I'll give most any book a shot (this includes Twilight and 50 Shades of Grey, thank you).  The main change to my reading habits recently is that if I've given the book a few chapters and I'm just not feeling it, I'm not going to force myself to read the whole thing.  Life's too short, and there are too many good books out there...which is why you'll see mainly 3-5 star reviews on my Goodreads profile.


I really want this blog to feel like you've spent a few minutes chatting with a friend. Chances are you're not going to get an incredibly serious academic book review from me. There are plenty of blogs out there doing that better than I ever could, and it's just not my style. And the rest of the stuff will probably be full of my unique brand of self-deprecating humor. If you're reading any of this, I consider you to be my friend...so we're going to talk like friends talk. And you might find a cuss word in one post, and the next post might be about a devotional. That means I'm what you might refer to as multifaceted. But I'm honest, and I love writing. And I hope that you'll find this to be a fun place to hang out.

Did I mention my Snapchat fascination??
So, consider this to be your virtual girls night book club, it just now includes all of the other stuff you talk about when you're NOT talking about the book!!  Because honestly...how long do you really talk about the book??? You don't have to put a bra on to come...yoga pants are welcome...you never have to worry about a DD...and you don't have to clear a spot in your busy schedule.  Perfection!!
