Happy Sunday, Everyone! Let's get to know each other. :)
1) What is your name and where are you from?
2) What are your 3 favorite things?
3) Who is your favorite author/book?
My name is Ashley, and the I am the owner/creator of Literary Vacation Club! We just celebrated our two-year anniversary, and I am so grateful to all of you who have helped us get here. Two weeks ago, I graduated with my Bachelors in Social Work, and tomorrow I am starting my Masters of Social Work program. I created Literary Vacation Club to bring love and stress relief to subscribers by escaping through literature. Reading has helped me with my own mental illnesses, and I wanted to bring that soothing experience to subscribers through a multi-sensory book box.
Apart from reading, I am the author of "Beautiful Nightmare" (published when I was 18) and "Behind Broken Glass Walls". I also own a crochet lingerie and accessory business that I built when I was 16. My three favorite things are Disney, books, and cats, and my favorite author is Jodi Picoult. The Pact is my favorite novel, and it is written by Jodi as well.
Thank you for listening, and I can’t wait to get to know you! 😊
How do you like to relax? Aroma therapy? Zen gardens? Reading?
Of course I love to read (no shock there, right? 😉). But I’m also living this little zen garden I got in my latest @literaryvacationclub Its so fun and relaxing!
These little scented beads were also in the box. The purple ones smell like lavender!!!! So good!
Who else loves Disney?
I was so excited to get my @literaryvacationclub box this month, especially since the theme was DISNEYWORLD!!!!! And everything truly is perfect! In this box, there was:
The Wishing World by Todd Fahnestock
A Disney poster and Disney princess post card (I got Merida!!!!)
A mini Disney zen garden
An awesome Playlist of Disney themed songs
Hero vs. Villain scented beads from Tiffany Apan (which smell so good!!)

I loved it all so much! Swipe to see close ups.
Do you like to eat snacks while you read? I always get hungry when I read.
These cinnamon raisin bagel chips came in this month’s box from @literaryvacationclub and they are sooo yummy! Perfect for snacking on while reading a good book! 😋
Also, in a side note, that dragon wing makes an adorable bookmark! 😍
Every time I think of New York now, I can’t help starting to sing Hamilton. It’s a problem, haha.
But, check out all the amazing goodies that came in this month’s @literaryvacationclub box (with a New York theme)! In this box, there was:
Nite Fire by C.L Schneider
A cute little candle from @diocandleco (which smells AMAZING, fyi)
