There were moments when I laughed, moments where I gasped in surprise, and moments where I knew I could not read fast enough because I had to know what was going to happen next... My only complaint? That it ended and now I need to wait. I must know what happens next. I must!!!!' Series Tracker 'Are you ready for a grip the edge of your seat-repeating mantra of OMG as you turn the pages eagerly? Looking for something with intensity but also something that leaves you begging for more??? Looking for a new fav??? YES. This book is all of what you need and so much more! Go Into This One Knowing. Best. Book. Ever.' Crossroad Reviews 'This was incredible!... such a slow burn romance but the build-up had my heart beating out of my chest, the angst and suspense was killing me... This book was perfectly paced and the lack of info-dumping, love triangles and insta-love made for a perfect start to a new series. Switching from POV's from England and Paris and following the characters as they go from across countries was a great concept. With the addition of magic, action and adventure this book could really do no wrong in my eyes. There isn't a cliffhanger ending just the promise of lots more to come in the next installment which I'm now anxiously awaiting. I highly recommend this to fellow fantasy lovers who are looking for a brand new world to immerse themselves in, with great characters, a promising romance and a thrilling journey ahead.' Literary-ly Obsessed 'I love this book! It was really great! I've always loved books that include Alchemy as its major fantasy core, I just think that it's such a fascinating 'science'! ... I read the first chapter, and I was completely swept into this amazing world! ... can't wait until the second book comes out, and to continue exploring this amazing story!

London, 1814: A young woman inherits an interesting London house, Number 14 Beaulieu Crescent. Nothing unusual in that, you might say. And ordinarily you'd be right. But this time the "house" is actually a high-class brothel, and the young woman has a secret identity of her own that she must never reveal. Especially not to the man who brings her body to life, stirs her senses like no other, and who has begun his own campaign to unlock the mystery that is "Madam Charlie."

Author: Michel Houellebecq
Publisher: Farrar, Straus and Giroux
A controversial, intelligent, and mordantly funny new novel from France's most famous literary figure Paris, 2022. François is bored. He's a middle-aged lecturer at the Sorbonne and an expert on J. K. Huysmans, the famous nineteenth-century "decadent" author. But François's own decadence is considerably smaller in scale. He sleeps with his students, eats microwave dinners, reads the classics, queues up YouPorn. Meanwhile, it's election season. And although Francois feels "about as politicized as a hand towel," things are getting pretty interesting. In an alliance with the socialists, France's new Islamic party sweeps to power. Islamic law comes into force. Women are veiled, polygamy is encouraged, and Francois is offered an irresistible academic advancement--on condition that he convert to Islam. Adam Gopnik in The New Yorker has said of this novel that "Houellebecq is not merely a satirist but--more unusually--a sincere satirist, genuinely saddened by the absurdities of history and the madnesses of mankind." Michel Houellebecq's Submission may be satirical and melancholic, but it is also hilarious; a comic masterpiece by one of France's great novelists.

How to Get Lucky
Author: Erin McCarthy
Publisher: Erin McCarthy
Sometimes there is more than one way to get lucky… Allison Parker knows winning the New York state lottery is impossible for a retail employee and fashion designer wanna-be who doesn’t, uh, play the lottery. But after a particularly bad day at work and a random prediction from a quirky psychic, she does just that, and wins. Money. Lots of it. Marco Lucky is exhausted over his bandmates and their diva antics and is looking for an escape. Yet finding a quiet spot in New York City is damn near impossible and he’s already tired of the women hitting on him strictly because he’s famous. But then the crazy brunette with the winning lottery ticket tells him exactly what she thinks of him and it isn't flattering. He finds himself determined to get to know her better... a whole lot better and prove he is worth her time. Allison figures it’s only fitting that she be the first woman in the history of ever to hit the lottery and score a smoking hot rock star all in one night, only to wake up with her entire life destroyed a mere eighteen hours later when her lottery ticket is missing. Marco’s offer of help makes her feel like the biggest lame ass loser ever, and while she can't take his money, she can take a weekend in LA and some smoking hot sex. But that's all it can be with him rich and hitting the road and her hitting the unemployment line. From two different cities, and two different worlds, can Marco and Allison put the issue of money to bed? Because being lucky in love just might be hitting the jackpot after all…
Around the turn of the century, the American liberal tradition made a major shift away from politics. The new radicals were more interested in the reform of education, culture, and sexual mores. Through vivid biographies, Christopher Lasch chronicles these social reformers from Jane Addams, Mabel Dodge Luhan, and Lincoln Steffens to Norman Mailer and Dwight MacDonald.

Adamski claimed he met with one Nordic alien, surnamed "Orthon", in 1952 at Desert Center. While friends watched from a distance, Adamski started a conversation of gestures & telepathy. Adamski wrote his first account in "Flying Saucers Have Landed" (1953) with his friend Desmond Leslie. while Leslie was more precise, Adamski was vague, excited but quite childish in telling the story. The dialog is quite ridiculous. Later, two more Nordics, "Firkon" & "Ramu" met & invited Adamski inside their ships, parked outside of Los Angeles. Together they discussed with him topics like "universal law" & various problems of our planet. They showed him their engines & space ships. Adamski decided to spread such accounts thru his book "Inside the Space Ships" in 1955 & thru world conferences
