I’m an Ashley nicknamed Lulie by my grandmother at the age of two. Twenty-five years later and I still don’t know why she calls me that. Call me Lu.
I don’t particularly like California (where I live) or the sun for that matter, hence my blog name. My wish is to one day move to Seattle, Washington with my amazing husband and beautiful one year old baby-kitty, and open up a book donation center for the mentally ill. I love to read, play on my cell phone, and hike. My husband and I were once on the 2,650-mile Pacific Coast Trail for oh, three miles or so. We were very proud of ourselves.
I read mostly YA, but tend to throw in an adult contemporary or memoir or biography in the mix once in a while. I’m a character-driven kind of reader and have never been very forgivable of bad characters. I lean towards romance, but like my novels pretty fast paced too. The Fault in Our Stars by John Green is my favorite book.
I love interacting with other readers so please feel free to comment, tweet me, goodreads me, whatever.
