Today I will be using a book that I am planning to read in the very near future:

Broken by C.J. Lyons

Broken by C.J. Lyons

Title: Broken

Author: C.J. Lyons

Summary via Goodreads:


Diagnosed with a rare and untreatable heart condition, Scarlet has come to terms with the fact that she’s going to die. Literally of a broken heart. It could be tomorrow, or it could be next year. But the clock is ticking…

All Scarlet asks is for a chance to attend high school—even if just for a week-a chance to be just like everyone else. But Scarlet can feel her heart beating out of control with each slammed locker and vicious taunt. Is this normal? Really? Yet there’s more going on than she knows. And finding out the truth might just kill Scarlet before her heart does…


If you want to get noticed fast, try starting high school three weeks late as the girl who almost died.


I know she’s not lying about my heart running out of time. Just the opposite. Finally, someone is treating me like a grown-up, telling me the whole truth. No one has ever done that before. Not the doctors or nurses. Not Dad. Know what? The truth sucks.

-I am really looking forward to reading this book very soon. I love the cover and the premise sounds really interesting.
