Hello, my name is Ashley Hasty.


Senior Lecturer at Indiana University | Fashion Educator & Historian | Interests include reading (obvi), visiting art and history museums, eating out at new restaurants, and traveling.

Hasty Book List started as a simple hashtag on Instagram so I could keep track of the books I've read and refer back to it when my friends asked me for recommendations. As my list developed, I got requests to expand my reviews beyond a few sentences and to add ratings.

I am always open to book recommendations, but my list of to-reads is already longer than a lifetime's worth of reading.

I hope you enjoy perusing my list of books! I love to hear when people have enjoyed a book I've recommended. Keep in touch!
