Let’s get to know each other!

I’ve realized that when I first started this blog I never introduced myself except on the About Me page. I would like you to get to know me on a personal level. Who I am, my family, my family and why I started this blog. Now, lets get down to it!

My name is Ashton McGuire, I’ll be 30 years old in March. I am married to a wonderful man, Sean and we have an amazing 3 year old Nolan. Sean and I got married June of last year and we’ve been together 4 years before that. We own a house outside of Rochester, NY and we love it here. I have a part time job as a night auditor at a local hotel and I’m currently going to school online for Network Technology. After 10 + years in hospitality, I realized that career wasn’t for me and took a chance and now I’m headed towards a career in IT. I’ve been contemplating going into Network Forensics and Security.  I’m excited to join the IT industry and see where it takes me.

Our wedding pictures were taken by wearedarling photography and he did a wonderful job! Highly recommend!

Some of my hobbies include: running (5k in April), reading of course and working out. I decided to start this blog because I love to read. I grew up spending my summers at the local library with my sister. Browsing the bookshelves all day,  reading all the Goosebumps books, box car kids, and babysitter club books. The thriller/mystery category is still my all – time favorite. Being on the edge of my seat until the very end, who did it? Why? I wanted to start this blog so I can review the books for people who are thinking about reading the book. I always have my opinions about the books I read and I don’t want my thoughts go to waste. Now, picking actors for the characters in the book was not my idea. Sean has always played a game where he picks new actors to star in remakes of classic movies. His remake for Jaws as an example, would be Ryan Gosling as Matt Hooper, Jake Gyllenhaal as Martin Brody and  Jeff Bridges as Quint. So, I thought why not pick actors to play in the movie based upon the book. Most movies now are based upon books, so I’m getting a jump start.

I will read a book and post my review every two weeks. In the coming months, I’ll have a theme for each month. I’m very excited to start this blog journey and hope all enjoy it!
