Love-A-Thon 2017: The Opening Act


About Ashley
Hey lovely readers,
I'm Ashley and this is my home in the book community.
  • Tell us your history with reading. Were you always a reader? Were you a reluctant reader? Was there a book that convinced you to become a reader?
When I was younger I wasn't the type of child who had her nose stuck in a book. I remember going to some bookstore and finding a corner of Clifford the big red dog books and loving those. I remember when the book fairs would come to school (You remember those right? The Scholastic Book Fairs.) I would pick out books like the Baby-Sitters Club and I remember the original american girls books that I loved to read like Samantha, Felicity, Kirsten, but as I grew up I think I fell out of reading. The next time I really picked up a book and enjoyed myself was with the Harry Potter books and then Twilight.
  • How did you get involved in the online book community?
I remember I was sitting in my moms room late at night because at the time my apartment didn't have electricity. I think I came across Kristi's Site The Story Siren, and thought that would be awesome to have a blog like that. Then I dug a little deeper and came across Goodreads, and I was hooked. Before my book blog I had a personal blog (which is still accessible) Even before that I had a livejournal. (which I still have). If we want to keep going I've had tons of websites dating back to '98 or '99 when I was in middle school, and my life started falling in a downward spiral. Family issues. 
  • How did you choose your primary platform (blog, Instagram, YouTube, etc)? How did you come up with your blog name?
A blog was just the natural thing for me because 1.) there wasn't instagram when I started and youtube wasn't really a booktube place I don't at the time. Also, I had made so many of my own websites back in middle and high school that a blog seemed the easiest to do for me.
The name came because I had another blog for about 20 days and it was okay. However it just wasn't catchy enough for my taste. One day I remember talking to my Sis-in-law, and she mentioned how I should join a group for bookaholics. Then it hit me AA. There should be a group of people sitting around talking about their book addictions. I was in love <3. 
  • What’s your favorite thing about the online book community?
I love being able to interact with people who have my same obsession with books. I love that I can find out where signings are gonna be and meet the authors that I love. 
  • What sort of posts can readers expect from you?
Normally, I post reviews, discussions, anything that seems book-related. I know right now it looks as if 've abandoned my home here, but I'm still around trying to get back in the swing of things.
  • FAVORITES
    • Food? Beverage? I'm not sure I have a fave food maybe Spaghetti and Dr.pepper is my fave drink
