Personal: Delivery Day

Guess who got a delivery today and is super excited about it?! This girl!

My books from Amazon and Barnes and Noble came today, so you officially have reviews to look forward to in 2014!
The list of new arrivals is as follows (from bottom to top in the photo):
  • Teardrop by Lauren Kate
  • The Fault in Our Stars by John Green*
  • Another Little Piece by Kate Karyus Quinn
  • The Program by Suzanne Young
  • All the Truth That's in Me by Julie Berry
  • In the After by Demitria Lunetta
  • Obsidian by Jennifer L. Armentrout*
  • Onyx by Jennifer L. Armentrout*
  • Opal by Jennifer L. Armentrout
*I've already read them, but I will be rereading them and posting reviews

I'm super excited because I've been looking forward to a lot of these books for a very long time! I also have Origin by Jennifer L. Armentrout, which I got as a birthday gift from my darling friend who knows me oh-so-well--books are always the perfect gift. This is also in addition to my stacks of books I already have in my room and my stacks of virtual books on my Kindle.

As you can see, I'll definitely be a busy girl in 2014, with plenty of fuel for reviews!

So stay tuned for more!

*I apologize for my extreme overuse and exhaustion of exclamation points but books just make me insanely excited!

Introductions are always good, aren't they?

So hello, stranger! I'm Nichol, hence the "nickel" for my thoughts; Nickel is a not-so-fond nickname that I've acquired. I guess it's grown on me. Kat's nickname definitely grew on her in the lovely Ms. Jennifer Armentrout's Lux series. Then again, who would mind an insanely hot guy calling you "Kitty", even if he is an alien?

Anyway, back to the basics. I'm sixteen years old and a junior in high school. I get overwhelmed at times and usually try to relax with a good Wattpad story; I'm hoping to revert my Wattpad addiction back to my book addiction. However, I tend to be a seasonal reader; insatiable during the summer and winter breaks, but absolutely illiterate during the school year. I'm hoping to change that though!

I'm hoping that this blog, and you guys eventually, will help motivate me to stick with my reading habits and not let school distract me from the more important things at hand--books! (My priorities are insanely well-aligned, aren't they?)

I haven't thought this whole blog thing out yet. I run a "blog" on Tumblr (link on the side!), but I figure that's far different than this. So as people start reading this blog, we'll develop a schedule!

I have 9 books on the way from Amazon, 3 books on the way from Random House, 1 book on the way from a giveaway, and countless new and unread books stacked in my room. I also have a virtual stack of books waiting for me on my Kindle for my vacation to Europe this month. So I'll definitely have fodder for thought by 2014; plenty to blog about!

But honestly, I'm playing this all by ear; I hope that you guys are willing to stumble along with me!

So until next time, no-longer-a-stranger!
