Hello, my name is Ashley Hasty.


By day, I am a Senior Lecturer at Indiana University - I teach History of Fashion, Brand Management and Advertising, and Visual Merchandising to juniors and seniors.

My interests include reading (obvi), visiting art and history museums, eating out at new restaurants, and traveling. This year I have trips planned to Chicago, Seattle, Kansas City, Kauai, San Diego, Lake of the Ozark, Palm Springs, and Cabo!

Hasty Book List started as a 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!
