Calling All Readers....

As I have fallen deeper into this addictive blogging universe I have noticed a lot of "special" weekly posting ideas from some wonderful bloggers and thought I would start my own. How original am I?! Since I don't do a lot of exciting things, unless of course you think driving A LOT, working in real estate, or every step Lucy takes is exciting. Which I have to admit, I think Lucy is pretty exciting! Ok, I'm getting side tracked...I do love to read and I am always looking for a new book. I love to hear of books that other people have read and try them for myself. So my, oh so original idea, is to do a book review every.....what day is it?....oh yea, TUESDAY and it will be called, WAIT FOR IT, WAAAAIIIITTT FOOOOOR IIIIIIT....Ashley's TUESDAY BOOK REVIEW!!!! Don't you love it?!! So, enough of my idiotic rambling and on to the good stuff (or at least I think books are "good stuff")....

Ok, so for my first TUESDAY BOOK REVIEW I am actually going to tell you about a series of books that I have finally finished and can't say enough good things about.

Janet Evanovich - The Stephanie Plum Series

If you love mystery/suspense/funny books these are for you. Stephanie Plum is a lingerie buyer who loses her job and goes to work as a bounty hunter for her cousin. There are fifteen books in all and every one of them will have you laughing out loud and unable to put them down. They make for excellent light reading and I have read all of them in about two months (yes they are that good). Everything about the books makes you want to read the next one. The hysterical situations and the sexy, crazy, over the top characters will have you reading late into the night! I don't want to give too much away but I would recommend that you start from the beginning although you don't have to. All of the books are listed on Janet Evanovich's website here. Check them out and let me know what you think. Also, if anyone else does a book review, let me know. I would love to hear about what everyone is reading and check it out for myself!!


  1. I love Janet Evanovich. I have not read this series...so I will have to get my hands on it. I have been on a Nora Roberts kick lately.

  2. This is a great idea!!! I have heard that she is an amazing author but I have not yet read any of hers......Instead of Oprah's book club it's going to be Ashley's book club :)
