Hello reader, I’m Ashlee! If you’re here, odds are you’re a fellow bibliophile and are seeking book recommendations or just a place to gush about your favorite (or most despised) book.

Library in the Country (LitC) is here to provide both for you! Founded in the Fall of 2017, LitC is a burgeoning book review blog with a primary focus on Young & New Adult Fantasy & Science Fiction (with the occasional outlier) novels. My goal is to bring you reviews of the most anticipated new or coming releases plus those all-time favorites we find ourselves rereading at least once a year. Please feel free to share your thoughts on the books reviewed, I love a good bookish discussion!

Of course, you may be wondering, who is reviewing all of these books? Well, my husband and our two children live in a rural farming community nestled in the high desert of Nevada. I work full-time as a veterinary assistant while attending school to become a licensed veterinary technician. We love the quiet country life, even if our house is never quite quiet. I am a self proclaimed nerd, animal lover, and music enthusiast in addition to having an insatiable taste for reading. I can’t leave the house without my sunglasses, like some coffee with my creamer, might have a swearing problem, and have been occasionally sucked into a time warp while watching Top Ten videos on auto-play.

I started LitC because I wanted a place to share my passion of reading with others. There have been countless times I’ve just wanted to gush over the latest novel I’ve completed but have been without the audience to do so. This is my place to rant and rave, meet those that share similar interests and spill my heart out when I’m suffering from my latest book hangover!
