About Me

Hi guys! I'm Nick. I'm 21. I'm currently a Masters student working towards my degree in Cell & Molecular Biology. When I'm not reading YA/NA/Adult books, you can find me curled up in bed with Netflix (or most likely doing homework which isn't as cool as Netflix). I'm not the best at describing myself, but if there's anything you want to know about me, do email me!

Publisher : Self Published

Goodreads - Amazon - Barnes & Noble

What he wants he gets...

Knox Masters is a quarterback's worst nightmare. Warrior. Champion. Knox knows what he wants--and he gets it. All American Football player? Check. NFL pros scouting him? Check. Now, he's set his sight on two things. The national title. And Ellie Campbell. Sure, she's the sister of his fellow teammate, but that's not going to stop him. Especially not when he’s convinced Ellie is the one.

...but he's never met her before.

But Ellie isn't as sure. She's trying to start a new life and she's not interested in a relationship...with anyone. Beside it's not just her cardinal rule of never dating her brother's teammates that keeps her away, but Ellie has a dark secret that would jeopardize everything Knox is pursuing.

Knox has no intention of losing. Ellie has no intention of giving in.

Hello everyone!

The time has come for me to go back to university in the US. BOO! :( I can't believe how fast my summer break has gone by! I'm going to miss being home and my family so much. *weeps*

Anyways, I just wanted to make a quick announcement that I will be unavailable in the blogging sphere for several days (probably until next weekend) because I have to get settled into my new apartment and get used to going to school and work again.
I have posts scheduled for the week and my monthly recap for the weekend, but I won't be around much to get commenting/replying done. Sorry guys, but I promise to be back in full swing in a week or so. I hope you'll still stop by.

Have a great week everyone and happy reading! :)

Summary (from Goodreads)

Title : Anne & Henry
Author : Dawn Ius
Publication Date : September 1st 2015
Publisher : Simon Pulse

Goodreads - Amazon - Barnes & Noble

In this wonderfully creative retelling of the infamous—and torrid—love affair between Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, history collides with the present when a sizzling romance ignites in a modern-day high school.

Henry Tudor’s life has been mapped out since the day he was born: student body president, valedictorian, Harvard Law School, and a stunning political career just like his father’s. But ever since the death of his brother, the pressure for Henry to be perfect has doubled. And now he’s trapped: forbidden from pursuing a life as an artist or dating any girl who isn’t Tudor-approved.

Then Anne Boleyn crashes into his life.

Wild, brash, and outspoken, Anne is everything Henry isn’t allowed to be—or want. But soon Anne is all he can think about. His mother, his friends, and even his girlfriend warn him away, but his desire for Anne consumes him.

Henry is willing to do anything to be with her, but once they’re together, will their romance destroy them both?

Inspired by the true story of Anne Boleyn and King Henry VIII, Anne & Henry beautifully reimagines the intensity, love, and betrayal between one of the most infamous couples of all time.

Summary (from Goodreads) 

Title :  Everything, Everything
Author : Nicola Yoon

Publication Date : September 1st 2015
Publisher : Delacorte Books for Young Readers
Goodreads - Amazon - Barnes & Noble

This innovative, heartfelt debut novel tells the story of a girl who’s literally allergic to the outside world. When a new family moves in next door, she begins a complicated romance that challenges everything she’s ever known. The narrative unfolds via vignettes, diary entries, texts, charts, lists, illustrations, and more.

My disease is as rare as it is famous. Basically, I’m allergic to the world. I don’t leave my house, have not left my house in seventeen years. The only people I ever see are my mom and my nurse, Carla.

But then one day, a moving truck arrives next door. I look out my window, and I see him. He’s tall, lean and wearing all black—black T-shirt, black jeans, black sneakers, and a black knit cap that covers his hair completely. He catches me looking and stares at me. I stare right back. His name is Olly.

Maybe we can’t predict the future, but we can predict some things. For example, I am certainly going to fall in love with Olly. It’s almost certainly going to be a disaster.
