Hello there! I’m Ashley, the writer and creator behind The Bookish Bohemian.  I’m a middle school English teacher by day, and have recently put back on my blogger hat by night.  I’m a newish resident of Southern New Hampshire, although I’ll always be a Boston girl at heart.  I am all about reading, writing, cooking healthy(ish) plant-based food, shopping, exploring my tiny city, and most of all, spending time with the people I love. Here are a few more little odds and ends about me:

The Name: When I decided to start blogging again, I knew I needed to think up a name that better represented who I am as a person and a creator.  On the one hand, I can be serious, nerdy, and shy while on the other, I can be equally dreamy, feisty, and bold.  After much deliberation, I finally settled on The Bookish Bohemian, a blend of the two halves that make my whole.

The Fella: Tim is my boyfriend.  We’ve been dating for five years and shacking up for three, and I couldn’t have asked for a better man to love.

The Furries: Daisy, my cat, and I have been kicking it since before Tim was in the picture, and she STILL won’t let me pet her for more than 30 seconds at a time.  We adopted our pup, Rue, in December of 2016 and I really couldn’t love her more if I tried.


This blog serves as my virtual library, closet, recipe box, and home.  I hope you enjoy your time here.
