One day, two lovely ladies shared their darkest secret with each other. Each was sure the other would laugh, but when the first went ahead and divulged, they were amazed to find out they had the same desire – to write a book. Both complete and utter bibliophiles, they started a writing journey together, sharing the stories in their heads as well as their opinions on books already published. Sometimes their thoughts on the same books or characters were markedly different, and sometimes they were in full agreement (Pride & Prejudice FOR LIFE!). Wanting to share their own passion for everything bookish, they started a blog, Lovely Literature. Here you’ll find honest reviews on books old and new, writing exercises for sparking inspiration, perfectly pin-able ideas and more.
About the lovely ladies behind Lovely Literature:
a character polygamist — Ashley has been a character polygamist since she could read. She’s entered into several (one-sided) fictitious relationships with characters from her favorite novels, movies and television shows. She lives for charming characters and stupendous storylines.
In her day job, Ashley is an advertising professional with experience in account management, strategic planning, social media, and creative branding. Besides reading, writing and anything Jane Austen, her passions include the color turquoise, and chai lattes. She is also a contributing film reviewer for FlixChatter. Follow her on Twitter.
TheForgivingRealist — Anne can remember being disappointed on the first day of kindergarten. The books at her disposal had no words, only pictures, and her teacher pronounced her name “Annie.” After explaining that the “e” was silent, Anne’s critical nature began. Ever since, she’s been enjoying poking holes in books.
Anne is a communications professional in corporate America, and can’t wait until the day when she can pay her bills with words that aren’t related to business decisions. She is particularly taken with her two adopted dogs, and loves to binge-watch Firefly, Veronica Mars, GOT (although the books are far better) and True Blood (the books aren’t better). Anne possess one superpower: speed reading. Follow her on Twitter.
