confession of a book hoarder + a little introduction

Confession: I am a Grade-A book nerd. I may have outgrown the braces and the glasses, but I still love me some books.  If you could see inside my house right now, you'd see a big stack of dirty dishes that need washing bookshelves packed to overflowing, stacks of books on end tables, and boxes of books in the garage that I can't bear to part with. When I'm not bogged down in school work (fat chance lately!) I can easily finish 2 or 3 a week. In fact, it's a good thing I finally bought a Kindle a couple years ago, or I'd probably be making walking paths through the living room at this point, like an Extreme Hoarder!

Anyhoo, today, I'm super excited to introduce to you someone who loves books as much as I do: Ashley from A Bookworm and a Baby! Not only does she write great reviews (I never would have given Life of Pi a chance otherwise...I was convinced it was going to contaminate me with geometry!) but she's incredibly real and a beautiful mom with the cutest baby boy you've ever seen. Ashley is brand-spankin new to the blogging world, so stop by and show her some love! Take it away Ashley!


Hello everyone! First I want to give a big THANK YOU to Jenn for the opportunity to post on her lovely blog! Don’t you just love her?

My name is Ashley and I blog over at A Bookworm and a Baby. I’m pretty new to the blogging world, but I instantly fell in love with the community and I am so excited to learn and grow as a blogger!

A few random facts about me: I've moved about 20 times in my short 25 years due to my Dad’s job, so  I've been lots of places and seen lots of things! I have friends from all around the country, which is awesome. I've lived in Germany, Kentucky, Virginia, Alabama, North Carolina... the list goes on.

I have my degree in Art History. I know what you're thinking. Useless degree. Aaaaand I pretty much agree with you. But, I'll have you know that Kate Middleton has a degree in Art History, so if there's ever an opening for a Princess, I'm totally qualified :)






(That’s me! I’m pretty gangster. Only not.)

I've been married to my awesome hubs for a year and a half, and he is the best guy ever. Even when he leaves the cap off the toothpaste. Or leaves every cabinet or drawer he touches open. 

Or throws wet towels on the bed.

It’s love, people. Otherwise, I’d have to hurt him J


                      


We just welcomed our first bundle of joy, and boy has it been a crazy ride so far! Mommy-hood is wild, but I am loving every minute of it.





My one true passion in life (besides my family!) is reading. I am obsessed. I can literally sit and read for like 10 hours straight. I love searching for new books, reading those recommended to me, and discussing my thoughts and opinions on the stories with others. So, when I decided to start a blog, I thought, what better to focus on that my absolute favorite thing in the world?

So, in addition to stories about blundering my way through parenthood and a few random thoughts, my main focus for my blog is to recommend and review books! I do a review at least once a week, sometimes more, and love hearing people’s comments and opinions on what I’m reading! I hope that I can encourage people to enjoy reading a little more, and to give them a list of great books to get started with!

I would love for you to stop by my little slice of the internet and tell me what you’re reading! I look forward to getting to know you all!
