I won't be very active for the weeks to come, not until May. Because I'm going on vacation! Finally a vacation for Ashley that is more than needed. A little fresh air and sunshine and beach water, yes please. So that means that I will not be answering any emails until May so please be patient. I reviewed all the books that I promised I would in April so I won't be behind schedule because of this trip.
I have some posts scheduled to post while I'm gone so my site won't be completely empty during those days. I'm mainly just giving authors that email me a heads up that it might be a while before I get back to you. Sorry for the inconvenience but this vacation is important to me.
Happy reading everyone! Continue Reading

Lately I've been trying to push myself out of my comfort zone more and more. I'm only twenty-four soon to be twenty-five, I shouldn't be so scared to do so many things. I am now on anxiety medicine and I'm not ashamed of that, it's something that I have dealt with for awhile without the proper help. I finally admitted that I couldn't do it alone anymore and spoke with my doctor. She told me that once it got in my system that I would find myself less afraid to do things that would normally have me in a puddle on the floor from fear. Continue Reading
Hello all you beautiful people out there. I feel like every time I come on here to blog about my thoughts it's to apologize for being M.I.A. and that's what I'm doing here again.
I was away from my house for two whole weeks visiting family while my husband was on a business trip. While I did read while I was there the internet was horrible so I wasn't able to blog or review while I was there. I also didn't get to read nearly as much as I wanted to but that's oaky ... I guess. Anyway I'm back at my lovely house that I never want to leave ever again and also back to working.
Yesterday I spent all day writing my book since I couldn't do that either while I was away. Today I will probably transcribe some videos for my actual job and then hopefully I can get back to reviewing soon. I think I have decided to kind of slow down on reviewing, not because I'm unhappy but because I really want to finish the first draft of my book this year. It's a little difficult to get into writing mode when I can't stop thinking about the monster of a TBR pile I have and how many I need to review this month or the next month. It becomes too daunting and almost makes me want throw in the towel completely but I don't. Mostly because I know that I will need reviewers once my book is complete and I just hope other reviewers are as understanding as I am. Being honest is important in reviewing but you don't have to be a total dick about it. True Story.
I know I have been MIA lately and I apologize for that but A LOT has happened this month. I don't want to get into details about everything but know I will be back soon. I am currently reading Stone Cold Touch by Jennifer Armentrout and I hope to finish it later today. When I finish it I will post my review and hopefully pick up the next book in the series soon.
I got a job! I'm not sure I really want it but sometimes you have to do things that you really don't want to do, that's life. I am a transcriber for a website, not sure how well I'm doing in it right now but I'm really trying. I have only been working for one day and I all ready feel like I'm screwing everything up. Anyway enough of my sob story here, this blog is really not for that so no more of that.
After the last couple of weeks I have learned a lot. I learned that nothing is permanent -except maybe tattoos. So live life to it's fullest and appreciate EVERYTHING you have because you never know when it could be gone. Continue Reading
This is an apology to any authors that have emailed me and it's taken days, weeks or even a month for me to get back to you. I am so sorry, please know that I am usually not like that but sometimes this blog gets overwhelming. I love getting review requests and finding new books in my emails but it's a lot. I had 25 books to review in June and while that is way more my fault than anyone else's that is a ton of books for little ol' me. Continue Reading
Some of you may know that I entered a short story contest last month. I was incredibly nervous to enter because I have never put any of my writings out there like this. So even though I was very, very nervous I entered and the results are now in. I got third place!!!! I was just proud of myself for entering in the first place but to have placed, is amazing! Thank you to The Writing Piazza for holding the contest and Congratulations to everyone that entered!
