I am so honored and thrilled to now be a part of the Arctic Books team. I want to take the time and thank Alice again for this amazing and fun opportunity. I am going to be taking this challenge on and hopefully producing quality posts for you guys to enjoy!
Here are some facts about me!
I) My name is Jesse Nicholas and I blog over at Books at Dawn as well as co-blog here at Arctic Books!
II) I read mostly YA sci-fi/fantasy, but I have been known to dabble in adult fantasy as well as the thriller/mystery genre.
III) When I’m not reading you will find me singing and dancing to KPOP. My favorite groups/artists are: Girls Generation, Monsta X, BTS, Red Velvet, GOT7, NCT, Mamamoo and many more.
IV) I drink tea like it’s water. It’s pretty normal for me to have 4-5 cups of it a day. I know how bad that sounds, but it’s an addiction okay??
V) I sell shoes during the week and I serve on the weekends. You might be wondering when I get a day off; never. Just kidding! I might have one day a week off, but it doesn’t feel like it.
VI) I met Pierce Brown and several other authors who I love including: Morgan Rhodes, Marie Lu, Jeff Zentner, Elly Blake, Sabaa Tahir, Erin Bow, Kevin Sands and many more! 💙
VII) I love flying. Any chance I can get to hop on a plane and travel the world I will take it. I recently got back from a month long trip through Europe. I got to go to so many cities and countries. It was a dream come true!
VIII) I listen to way more audiobooks than actually reading a physical book. I commute a lot for work and find it easier to listen on the bus/train.
IX) I have maybe 100+ books on my shelves that have not been read yet. I made it my goal this year to at least knock it in half. I’m doing pretty well so far!
X) I’m gay, but I don’t let it define me as a person. I will gravitate towards contemporaries with gay main characters though. I tend to connect better with them and their experiences!
I hope you all are as pumped as I am to be on the Arctic Books team! What are you looking forward to most from us as co-bloggers? What kind of posts do you want to see and read? Let us know in the comments below.
Well, that’s all folks. I hope you enjoyed my first post here on Arctic Books and come back looking forward to more awesomeness!
Jesse is a 20 something college student/server and dwells in Toronto, Canada. He enjoys reading about fantastical worlds, listening to KPOP, and being a couch potato.
