SYNOPSIS:
Brogen Mathers can’t deal with teen drama… As an empath, she is constantly bombarded with other people’s energies. Despite coping techniques taught by her psychologist mother, it’s often too much to bear, forcing her to avoid most activities a typical high school junior would enjoy. Jay Wilken won’t let his past define him… A dead mother and an alcoholic father brought Jay to Stanton, but he doesn’t want pity. His good looks, charisma, and friendly nature quickly win over the whole student body, but he has his eye on one girl…Brogen. Brogen can’t believe anyone could be so genuinely nice. It has to be an act, right? But when Jay literally saves her from deadly jaws, she has to admit he’s exactly what he appears, and he’s worth risking the potential emotional upheaval. “Drama” might as well be Becca Grant’s middle name… Another newcomer to Stanton, Becca’s blonde beauty and abundant attitude shoots her straight to the top of the popularity charts—and she believes Jay belongs right there beside her. Accustomed to getting exactly what she wants, she launches a relentless mean-girl campaign to shake up Brogen and claim Jay for her own. Everything changes with a devastating diagnosis… When Jay learns he has a rare and potentially fatal disorder, he keeps it secret and begins to push Brogen away to spare her future pain—which is exactly the sort of opening Becca is waiting for. As Jay’s well-meaning deception unravels, Brogen realizes there is much more than her heart at stake… But how far is she willing to go to fight for someone she loves?

2017… Let’s hope this year will be better.

Hello 2017 & book lovers from all around the world!

I can even tell how hard was 2016 for me. I dropped out of the university, got a hard job,

lost few very close friends (still wish the best for them) and I was just a mess. I tried to be all over the place and I failed at everything. My reading game was horrible, so was all others my hobbies. I even let my bookstagram down, which is a big thing, because I love book community in Instagram. But that was last year and today is next. This year I won’t make promises, because I’m not sure I will keep them. But I will try to be as active as it will be possible. Also, my reading goal for 2017 is only 25 books, but it’s better to succeed at small one than fail with big.

However, few ARC’s are waiting, so I will read and review those for sure. I want to work more with authors this year. So, some interviews will be posted on this blog. Also, I have one idea about working with some bookstagramers or book bloggers. But I can’t say much about that, because first I need to talk about it with some people 🙂

So, at the end I want to say one thing. That I hope this year will be much better for me and for all of you. I’m not only talking about books, but everything. Life is beautiful. We should love it more.
