Ask Ashley (1)

I’ve been getting quite a few questions about me, my blog, and other things related, so I figured it was finally time to join the bandwagon and start my own ‘Q&A’ feature. Let’s get started, shall we?

Q. "On average, how fast do you read? I always find myself finishing a book that I love in two weeks. I know it's never about the speed, but I was just curious.
Thanks."

A. How quickly I read usually depends on different factors, such as my schedule. This past year, I was (and still am) in several plays and other acting programs, and a lot of my time was taken by rehearsals and the rest of my time was taken by schoolwork. Reading took a back seat, because I didn’t have the time to give to it, so it would take me several weeks to finish a book.

But, when my schedule is normal and I can read normally, it usually takes me anywhere from 1 day, to 1 week to finish a book. Lately, I’ve been reading books in about 3 or 4 days.

Q.  What things do you look for in a blog you follow?

A. Well, when I first find a blog, I first look at what type of blog it is. I’m not too much of  a fan of adult book blogs, because I don’t read adult books. Once I’ve determined that it’s a YA blog, I read the every post on the first page. I like to see a few reviews on the first page, and not too many memes. And then I like to see good content.

I’m actually weird in that a majority of the blogs I follow and comment on are very small with not too many followers. But the reviews are very in depth and very good, so I read them. But I do love big blogs. I also love blogs that update consistently.

Q.  Hi! I love What’s Your Story! I read it all the time. Anyway, after you read a book, how long do you wait before you post a review?

A. Thank you so much for your kind words!

That is definitely something that changes with what I’ve just read. If I’ve just finished a book that is already out in stores, I usually write the review as soon as possible and get it up the day after I finished it, or a few days after at the latest. If I’ve just finished an ARC, then I write up the review and schedule it for the day the book comes out, or as close to the day as I can get it.


Thank you so much for asking me questions! I appreciate everyone reading my blog so much.
