About Me

My photo
I spend the majority of my time on campus, either in class or busy with other things going on. In my spare time, I like to write short stories and novels. I'm majoring in Communications at the University of Delaware.

Publishers/ Authors

I would be pleased to review any books, whether they be advance copies or old ones. If you would like me to review a book, feel free to email me at ashley2055@gmail.com or leave a comment on any of my posts.

I will also do giveaways on merchandise if you would be interested in giving away copies of books or other items.

Thank you for your time and interest!

Sunburn, Sand and Sunshine

I spent the last five days at the beach, and it was wonderfully worthwhile. Even though my friend was more into laying out and tanning instead of helping me apply sunscreen, it was still fun. I got to ride my bike all over and eat ice cream while walking down the beach. It was a very cliché vacation, if I do say so myself.

In other news, I passed all of my finals and did pretty good for my freshmen year, grade-wise.


I finished reading The Secret Life of Bees, but I haven’t dared to touch To Kill a Mockingbird yet. Well, I did. I just dropped it into my dresser drawer really quick and haven’t looked back at it yet. I will, eventually. I’ll be knee deep in summer work for the next few weeks unless I keep procrastinating. Then I can be knee deep in summer work in a month or so.

Decisions, decisions, decisions.

You’re more than just a mannequin to me.

I’m listening to The Summer Set right now. I saw them live last summer, and they are pretty amazing. So, why don’t you go check them out real quick? They’re one of my favorite boy bands. (I do have a lot)

So, I finish up the school year in less than a week. I will no longer be subject to the rolling eyes, the *chuckle, chuckle* “Freshmen” comments, or the hopeless loops around the school when I forget where my next class is. I will have the right to make those eye-rolls and those chuckles, because next year  . . . I’ll be a sophomore.

Wow, it sounds so fancy!

Just kidding. I really don’t care, seeing as sophomore year apparently sucks. I’ll be taking five honors classes, Italian II and working on the school yearbook. It’s going to be an exciting and busy, busy year.

Before then, though, we have summer. Things I’d like you to pay attention to . . .

~Awkward. It is an amazing TV show. It’s just perfection in so many ways. It’s relevant to high-schoolers and there are cute boys and it’s hilarious. I absolutely love it. Season 2 starts June 28th. You can watch all of season 1 on mtv.com now!!


~The Script has a new album coming out in September next year, which is the end of summer but still counts. I’m excited for my Irish band to come out with more music. They’re also amazing.


Those are my only updates as of right now, even though I’m sure there are more awesome shows, music and even books coming out. I’m reading ‘The Secret Life of Bees’ at the moment for English summer work, and I have to read ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, so I will most likely be doing book reviews in the coming weeks on both. Let me know what you think of either of them if you’ve read them before!

Changes in My Life

Hey everyone! I know it’s been some time, but I’m back! Isn’t this exciting? I know, you can’t contain the excitement.



So, yes, I’m back to blogging regularly. School is over in less than two weeks for me, and then I’ve got three months of sunshine and sand, tanning and talking, dieting and . . . dancing? Why not? As the kids in my overcrowded high school chant, YOLO!

Now, let’s review that alliterative list I came up with. Sunshine and sand . . . I think that part is obvious enough. Summer means long weekends at the beach and sand that will not disappear from my bags until next Christmas. Tanning is also a must. I like to brag about the fact that I’ve got great tanning skin. I actually still had tan lines in December this year. Talking is another obvious factor of summer. I’ll be chit-chatting from sunrise to sundown for the next three months.

The dieting part, your eyes wander back to. Well, yes, that is quite true! I’m starting the Skinny Girl diet sometime in the next two weeks to lose weight over the summer. It’s similar to the ABC diet, but less extreme. To learn more about the skinny girl, go here: http://anabones.wetpaint.com/page/Skinny+Girl+Diet

I know it may seem a bit extreme, but I really don’t think it is. I think it’ll give me the push to lose weight without starving myself or becoming bulimic, which I would never do. I have a new tumblr blog set up specifically for my weight loss journey. It also has motivational pictures and quotes and healthy meals. You can find that here:


And, finally, the dancing part of my summer. Why not dance a little?tumblr_m1rre3cRNa1qev9z2

I will most likely be starting a new blog to use as a diary for my 30-Day Skinny Girl diet. I’ll update all of you on that, but for now, follow that new tumblr for me, share my blog with friends and keep on dancing!
