Hey Y’all! I’m Ashley
If you’re reading this, it probably means you’re a fellow book nerd, welcome! I live in Virginia with my husband, daughter, two cats and a dog. I like books, a lot. I love collecting them (though my husband says it’s technically hoarding), reading them and talking about them to whoever will listen! Oh, and I work in a bookstore!
I’d say my collecting/obsession really started in middle school, when I discovered R.L. Stein’s Goosebumps. I mowed so many lawns so I could buy the whole series and I was always trying to convince family members to take me to the closest book store if I had extra money. Soon I was making my way through the Fear Street series and then on to my mother’s books; Mary Higgins Clark, Dean Koontz, John Grisham and Stephen King. After high school, I joined the Navy and didn’t have a whole lot of time (or space) to read. Once I got out of the military and got married, I quickly settled back into reading obsessively again and I haven’t slowed down!
For a lot of years I would only read a few genres, Fiction, Mystery and True Crime, but since I’ve started working in the bookstore, I read just about everything. In the past year I’ve really started reading more into YA and middle grade (this is what my daughter is reading).
When I’m not reading, I enjoy camping and 4-wheeling with my family, photography, crafting, traveling and binge watching something on t.v.!
