My name is Ashley, a Seattlite turned Londoner who has returned after four amazing years. My life has been thrown in a blender. I am still recovering through books the tragedies that have that shaped 2013.
I moved to London for five weeks for a study abroad program in 2006. The experience opened up my world, and it took three years to move back. Words cannot express the difficulty of having to start life over again after four years in a foreign country, but I’m a pirate and can do most things.
I’ve spent around nine years in childcare. Beginning at a daycare, then as a summer camp counsellor, on to an after school programme teacher and as a nanny for three years. I love books, especially Young Adult fiction. This blog is to review the latest (and sometimes not so latest) YA, Middle Grade and New Adult novels, along with any events in the publishing industry and my literary musings Monday’s. Because reading is what makes the world go round.
Disclaimer: All reviews are based from my Goodreads account. I also post to Amazon UK and USA and Barnes and Noble if requested. All opinions are my own and whilst this site is meant to focus on YA novels, the occasional fiction piece might slip in. The reviews are categorised by the ‘Review’ category. There’s also an Index where the reviews are alphabetised by author.
Please note that the books I review are either supplied from friends, the library, publishing houses or Net Galley.
Many thanks for reading and enjoy your stay!
