Ashley @ Ashheartbooks
Hi, I’m Ashley! I’m 28 and I love my day job as a Speech Language Pathologist where I get to help kids learn how to communicate. But as a hobby I’ve always loved getting lost in a book and my favorites are definitely romances. There is just something about that timeless notion of true love that gets me every time! My favorite thing is sharing my love of books with others and you can usually find me babbling on about my latest favorite to anyone who wants to listen.
