Hiya, stranger! Thanks for stopping by. My name’s Nichol and I’m a proudly obsessed reader.
about the girl
I’m a freshman in college, who is actually planning to pursue a career in reading and writing. I started attending Arizona State University for an English degree in the fall of 2015. With that degree, I hope to head into the publishing world. I also do a bit of writing on the side, with a far off dream of becoming an author myself.
Beyond reading, I absolutely adore traveling. There’s nothing more spectacular than experiencing all of the cultures the world has to offer. I’ve been to 41 countries (my most recent addition was Iceland) and 4 continents. My dream destinations right now are Australia and China. I’ve been studying German for more than five years now (and am minoring in German), though my favorite place to visit is actually Italy. From Venice to Rome, Florence to Pompeii, I’m a little bit lotta bit in love with the country. I can’t wait to study abroad in the next few years!
My family is basically a big group of bizarrely passionate people. When we do something, we go all out. Our vacations are often a series of at least five countries at a time. When I start liking a fandom, my dad starts booking tickets for conventions. I’ve attended New York Comic Con a few times, though my goal is definitely to get to San Diego Comic Con one day. I’ve also attended tons of conventions for Twilight (oooh, the tween days), Vampire Diaries, Teen Wolf, and more. I’ve also attended a handful of book festivals. The furthest I’ve dragged myself for a book festival was upstate New York; I drove all the way to Rochester (about 8 hours) for the Teen Book Festival there. I’ve also attended Apollycon, Bookcon, and the Nova Teen Book Festival. And then I finally made it to BEA in 2015. Go big or go home, right?
And that basically sums me up: writing, reading, Teen Wolf, and traveling. Unfortunately, I’m not much more interesting than that.
about the blogger
I’ve always been that girl that cries about books and gets teary-eyed just talking about my most recent read. I find it difficult to express myself, considering most of my friends neither understand nor care when I ramble about my fictional escapades.
So my solution is blogging! I’ve been blogging for about three years now, but I lost a lot of my reading and blogging spirit during my first college semester. Because of this, my new year’s resolution is a bit of a blogging revamp. This started with a transition from Blogger to WordPress in January 2016. And now I’m hoping to get back into the bookish groove (which unfortunately also means better time management with school work, but I’ll make it work).
In terms of my reading habits… I’m a romance girl to the core. I try to make sure that everything I read has at least a little bit of romance in it. I love me some swoons and tingles! Beyond that, I dabble in a bit of everything: fantasy, science fiction, contemporary, historical fiction, etc. I don’t read
much any Adult, but I do read both Young Adult and New Adult. If you have any recommendations, shoot me a comment, tweet, or email!
Anyway, thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy your time here at Stacks Waiting!
With lots of bookish love,
