About Me



Ashley Icon

Hi! Thank you for stumbling upon my little slice of the internet. My name is Ashley and I’m a 28 year old book junkie and self proclaimed nerd. I graduated with a BA in Graphic Art and do freelance design on the side when I’m not working at the office. I’m best described as an avid coffee drinker, reader and illustrator. In a perfect world I would create children’s books for a living and spend all my remaining time reading and reviewing books. Because life isn’t perfect I read when I can squeeze in the time, reviewing as often as I can. Thus Part Time Book Nerd was born.

I blogged primarily about books for four years and recently decided to expand into the lifestyle territory as I’m currently planning my dream wedding and want to showcase all the tips and tricks I’ve picked up as well as any other tidbit I think you all might enjoy.

The genre of books to be found on Part Time Book Nerd can be summed up as

  • Young Adult
  • New Adult
  • Middle Grade
  • Urban Fantasy
  • Paranormal Fiction
  • Graphic Novels
    • Any any all sub genres from those listed above

Disclaimer: In accordance with the new FTC Guidelines for blogging and endorsements, I would like everyone to know that while I do purchase my own books for review on occasion, you should assume that every book reviewed here at Part Time Book Nerd was provided to the reviewer by the publisher or the author for free unless specified otherwise. I also never, ever, ever review books for money. I also link books or items I love on the blog and am part of the Amazon Affiliate Program so I get a small little bit of money when you use my links. It doesn’t cost you a single thing but helps keep this blog running!
