Hello there and welcome to Always Reiding! We’re not going to BEA this year, but I am celebrating in Armchair BEA, and I would love to share the journey with you.

Without further ado, here is a little about me:

Please tell us a little bit about yourself: Who are you? How long have you been blogging? Why did you get into blogging? Where in the world are you blogging from?

I’m Nicole, and I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember (at least since the age of 4), but have been blogging off and on since 2003. I got into blogging as a way to keep track of mail art and writing. I started book blogging in 2009, when I got my first ereader. As a writer, blogging fulfills a daily need. As a reader, it provides a great community. I live in Southern California with my amazing husband and three cats.

Describe your blog in just one sentence. Then, list your social details — Twitter, Facebook, Instagram, etc. — so we can connect more online. 

AlwaysReiding.com is a place where I talk about all of the books I read, as well as all my crazy fan-theories and keep up with an ever expanding wishlist.

Instagram—AlwaysReiding (TBA) (My personal Instagram is @GothamGal)

What was your favorite book read last year? What’s your favorite book so far this year? 

Last year, I think I really loved reading and finishing the George RR Martin series that has been turned into the show Game of Thrones. I read book 2 through 5 last year, and while it was a chore, it was totally worth it, especially considering what we see on the show this season. This year, I read the Shining and Doctor Sleep and N0S4R2 (Two by Stephen King, one by Joe Hill). That set of three books with similar settings/characters are still with me.

What is your favorite blogging resource? 

I do a lot of Pinterest for blogging resources. Especially when it comes to WordPress. I just started following the Pixel Boutique as well. I love following Sheila at Book Journey for hints and updates as to what is going on in the reading world.

Share your favorite book or reading related quote. 

“I hope she’ll be a fool — that’s the best thing a girl can be in this world, a beautiful little fool.”
F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby
