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 is here to provide both for you! Founded in the Fall of 2017, Library in the Country is a burgeoning book review blog with a primary focus on Science Fiction, Fantasy and Romance (with the occasional outlier) novels – I am happy to read both Young Adult and Adult titles. 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 am currently attending university and working to complete my degree in English and Journalism. We enjoy the quiet country life, even if our house is never quite quiet. I am a self proclaimed nerd, animal lover, gaming 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.
In addition to this blog, I run the bookstagram of the same name, where I post on a daily basis. If you love bookish photos, news and bookstagram tours and giveaways, I certainly recommend following me there as well.
I started Library in the Country 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!
