Hey friends, Today I am sitting at home while america party’s! So i thought why not do another interview for this blog 🙂
This is miss Ashley and she has been my friend for about 5-6 years, I stopped counting because this is a friendship that doesn’t need a date because we are just cool like that! She is nothing short of amazing and she just gets me! She is the fastest reader I have ever met and I am super jealous of that. She taught me to love tea, read with an open heart and mind, and to enjoy everyday! On top of all of that she hopes to have her own bookstore/cafe called Elsewhere (which is the name of our book blog that we host together). Her interview is going to be amazing and I am excited!!! So let me introduce Ashley!!!
Q. Where were you born?
“The old Roseville Hospital, but I lived in Lincoln.”
Q. What is the first chapter book you can remember reading?.. and why did you choose that book?
“The Secret Garden because I love that movie”
Q. Who is your favorite Doctor? Ash is a HUGE Doctor Who fan so naturally I had to ask!
“It’s a tie between the fourth doctor Tom Baker and the ninth doctor Christopher Eccleston”
Q.What is it about the Gemma Doyle Trilogy that makes it your favorite?
“The story. It’s so beautifully written that it just sucked me in, and reminded me that there are so many mysteries and adventures in life. I stumbled upon that book in Borders during a time that I had kind of quit reading, I think I might have been depressed I didn’t really want to do anything. But then I found that book and I fell in love with reading and life again.”
When Ashley described this to me, I was almost in tears at how beautiful it was.
Q.What is it that makes you read a book even if you do not like it?
“Even if I hate it I have to know how it ends or I won’t be able to stop thinking about it.”
