Hello! I am Nicole. I am in my 30s and live in Richmond, VA with my husband and our two dogs, Oliver and Arya. I have been an avid lifelong reader. I learned to read with the help of Richard Scarry’s Best Word Book Ever and never stopped. As a kid of the 80s and 90s I am well versed in the Baby-Sitters Club and anything I could get my hands on through the Scholastic Book Fair or Trumpet Book Club. Young Adult Fiction has never stopped speaking to me, and I am still a frequent reader of the genre. I also like things having to do with a dystopia, apocalypse or post-apocalypse. Literary fiction is also in my to-be-read list. Graphic novels are new to me, but I am reading a lot trying to find out what I like.
When not reading I like to try to stay active either running, hiking, doing yoga or some other cardio activity. I work an office job so for 40 hours a week as I am pushing papers I am also usually listening to podcasts that are either bookish, sciencey or comedic in nature. I like to keep my politics progressive and spend time volunteering in ways which help various social justice causes.
