Welcome back to BOOK AND A BEVERAGE!
In case you don’t know the deal about Book and a Beverage, it’s a very simple yet fun feature: We read books, we drink beverages, we take pictures of them and then I share your photos and a little about you to the blogging world!
Give a big welcome to Ashley from Must Love Books!
Name & Blog Name: Ashley at Must Love Books
Tell us a little about your blog! My blog is all book reviews, bookish adventures, Top Ten Tuesdays and coming soon, crafting!
What’s been your favorite post you’ve written so far? (Link us up!) I would have to say, my favorite post would be my BEA recap. This was my first time experiencing BEA and I had a lot to talk about! The whole BEA experience was just amazing from start to finish and I can’t wait to go again!
Got anything special coming up we should know about? I have a few things in the works… Starting in January I will be hosting the Uppercase Box Book Club on my blog and on Twitter. Every month we will get together using the hashtag #UCBBookClub to discuss the Uppercase Box selection and there might even be some giveaways!
The second thing is my newest crafting obsession- I’ve just got a Cricut DIY cutter! I am working on making a bunch of bookish gifts and opening my own ETSY shop! T-shirts, pillows, mugs and more! I’m pretty nervous but also so excited! I’m thinking about doing a feature based off what I am working on…I’m not sure exactly how it will work yet!
Whatcha reading? Wolf by Wolf by Ryan Graudin
Where did it come from? (Library, purchased, publisher, etc): Uppercase Box (November)
Any special reason you chose to feature this book? Not really, It’s what I’m reading (it’s so good)!
What’s important that we should know about this book? Would you recommend it? I think the quote on the cover says it all “Win The Race. Kill Hitler or die trying” Who wouldn’t want to read this? I would recommend it, I have been recommending it, I recommend it to you!
Whatcha drinking? Coffee
What’s your favorite thing to drink while reading? A lot of the times the season depends on what I am drinking. During the summer I tend to stick to my craft beers and wine and in the Winter I drink coffee (the bolder the better!) and tea.
Favorite beverage of all time. Go! Coffee! I love coffee. I’m currently obsessed with Gevalia coffee. There are a few seasonal flavors I would love to be able to have year round!
What are your top three books you would recommend to other people? The Land of Stories by Chris Colfer. This is a middle grade series but I love it! It’s all the fairy tales we grew up with a twist and the characters…laugh-out-loud funny!
11-22-63 by Stephen King. This book is daunting at 848 pages but it is so worth it. King is such an amazing story teller and this books is a non stop adventure.
The Elegance of a Hedgehog by Muriel Barbery. This book will take you a minute to get into, but once you get there you’re in, all in (grab the tissues).
What’s your proudest blogging/reading/writing moment? Phew, this one is tough. I am just proud that I am still blogging after almost a year! I started my blog (officially) 3 years ago but I have only recently been trying to keep up with posting, it’s a lot of work! But I love connecting with other bloggers over my love of a specific book or just books in general. Book bloggers are like no other community and I’m so glad I am a part of it all!
Anything else you’d like to share? Thank you for having me Brittany!
Thanks, Ashley! I’m so glad we got to know each other better over this past year! Blogging is a ton of work but I’m so glad you’ve been enjoying it!
I really need to read 11/22/63! I’ve been meaning to but it’s just so big haha! It’s intimidating.
