I'm a nerd!

Ok so I offically have and addiction. Books! That's right I would have never guessed that the one thing that I would enjoy spending money on and buying would be books. I never really liked them to be honest while I was growing up. I had to read ones for reports and stuff, but that was pretty much the extent of my reading. I know shame on me. I think the first ones that I really actually enjoyed reading and wanted to finish were the Harry Potter books. I didn't actually start the series until like two or 3 of them had been written and then I borrowed those from my cousin to get caught up. Then after that I went online to some of the book clubs and signed up and ordered some and if I found any that looked remotely interesting to me at Goodwill or somewhere I would get them thus starting my book collection. At that time I mainly just just got Mary Higgins Clark books or books that were mystery/murder like. I did however end up getting the book "The Deep End of the Ocean' and reading that through because a friend told me about it. I was sad for the family in it. Enough about that though I'll write what I thought of the books I've read later on sometime. After that I think I read "Daddy's little girl" and a few others and then I got caught up in the "Twilight Phenom" and read pretty much all those in a course of a couple of months if that. After I had finished those I was like you know this is actually quite relaxing to just sit curled up in a bed or relaxing in the bathtub and reading. Letting your mind wander off into someone elses world to just be free of the "real world" few awhile. After the twilights I found the House of Night series and my Vampire Academy books and I fell in love with them and they still are my fave. Although there are others that run a very tight race with them I just don't think anything to me can compare with them. (more on why I like them some other time) Now I'm a sucker for books. I like the fantasy type books too. Sitting here on the bed  looking up books and their authors. I'm a total nerd I'll sit here and write them down in my little notebook that way I know what to look for, or if I go to half price books, walmart or target I'll look over in the book departments and read the backs or flaps to see what they're about. See told you nerd. Anyways, that is my addiction it's like I tell my mom though I could be spending that money on something much worse soI guess I should be thankful.

.:Welcome to My Wonderful Nitemarish World:.

My first blog. I don't really have alot to say at the moment so I figured I'd make my first blog a "get to know me kind of thing" that way if someone wants to know something they can read.  Why they would want to is beyond me but maybe someday it'll be important.

So if you still reading I shall start. My given name is Ashley J O. I reside in the South. Born and raised in Texas. I did move to Nebraska back in in 2006 or so and was there for a month before moving back down here. I guess it's true what they say there's no place like home. I'm currently 24 born April 4th of 86. I work full time as a Pharmacy Tech at CVS. Been with the company almost 5 years. I have two babies my Kitty, Hermione and My doxie, Toby. In the past year or 2 I've been really into reading. I mostly read the Young Adult books or the fantasy type stuff. My favorite series would have to be the Vampire Academy by Richelle Mead. Although there are some others that run a very tight race with it like The Immortal Series by Alyson Noel, Everynight by Claudia Gray, The Wake Series by Lisa Mccman, Blue Bloods By Melissa Del La Cruz, Vladmir Tod series by Heather brewer, and a few others.  I owe my new found love of reading to the Twilights books though I must admit that. Before that I only read the H.P Books and Mary Higgins Clark and maybe a few others but it would take me forever to finish just 1 book. Now it usually takes me a week or 2.  I'm currently writing (or tryin to write a book with a friend more on that later.) I'm also kind of writing my own stuff. I always start things and then they just kind sit in my notebook or on my computer and that's it. I also love writing poetry at one point in time I did it alot because it was a way for me to vent during my "crappier time" so needless to those aren't to happy. Anyways, I love going to the movies with friends although I don't go as much as I use too, I'm very much a homebody. I'd much rather be at home then out at some club. I also have to admit I spend alot of time with my mom. I love shopping even when I don't have any money. I'm not like a clothes and mall and whatnot shopper. I love walmart shopping. Don't ask why I don't know. Now with my book fetish I love Half Price Books. I could go in there and spend a few hours looking through books and also the cds and movies. I love it it's my addiction. I have a brother Cory who's a manager at family Dollar, a sister n law Christie and 3 adorable nieces Hayley, Karlie, and Lainey.
