If God Is Love, Don't Be a Jerk: Finding a Faith That Makes Us Better Humans par John Pavlovitz (Westminster John Knox Press)

Description : Thou Shalt Not Be Horrible.

Imagine for a moment what the world might look like if we as people of faith, morality, and conscience actually aspired to this mantra.

What if we were fully burdened to create a world that was more loving and equitable than when we arrived?

What if we invited one another to share in wide-open, fearless, spiritual communities truly marked by compassion and interdependence?

What if we daily challenged ourselves to live a faith that simply made us better humans?

John Pavlovitz explores how we can embody this kinder kind of spirituality where we humbly examine our belief system to understand how it might compel us to act in less-than-loving ways toward others.

This simple phrase, "Thou Shalt Not Be Horrible," could help us practice what we preach by creating a world where:

-spiritual community provides a sense of belonging where all people are received as we are;
-the most important question we ask of a religious belief is not Is it true? but rather, is it helpful?
-it is morally impossible to pledge complete allegiance to both Jesus and America simultaneously;
-the way we treat others is the most tangible and meaningful expression of our belief system.

In If God Is Love, Don't Be a Jerk, John Pavlovitz examines the bedrock ideas of our religion: the existence of hell, the utility of prayer, the way we treat LGBTQ people, the value of anger, and other doctrines to help all of us take a good, honest look at how the beliefs we hold can shape our relationships with God and our fellow humans―and to make sure that love has the last, loudest word.

The Soul of the Family Tree: Ancestors, Stories, and the Spirits We Inherit par Lori Erickson (Westminster John Knox Press)

Description : Growing up in a passionately Norwegian-American Iowa town, Lori Erickson rolled her eyes at traditions like Nordic Fest and steaming pots of rømmegrøt. But like many Americans, she eventually felt drawn to genealogy, the “quintessential hobby of middle age.” Her quest to know more about the Vikings and immigrants who perch in her family tree led her to visit Norse settlements and reenactments, medieval villages and modern museums, her picturesque hometown and her ancestor’s farm on the fjords.

Along the way, Erickson discovers how her soul has been shaped by her ancestors and finds unexpected spiritual guides among the seafaring Vikings and her hardscrabble immigrant forebears. Erickson’s far-ranging journeys and spiritual musings show us how researching family history can be a powerful tool for inner growth. Travel with Erickson in The Soul of the Family Tree to learn how the spirits of your ancestral past can guide you today.

Shearwater: A Bird, an Ocean, and a Long Way Home par Roger Morgan-Grenville (Icon Books)

Description : A very personal mix of memoir and natural history from the author of Liquid Gold.

Ten weeks into its life, a Manx shearwater chick will emerge from its burrow and fly 8,000 miles from the west coast of the British Isles to the South Atlantic. It will be unlikely to touch land again for four years.

Part memoir, part homage to wilderness, Shearwater traces the author’s 50-year obsession with one of nature’s supreme travelers. In the finest tradition of nature writing, Roger Morgan-Grenville, author of Liquid Gold, unpicks the science behind its incredible journey; and into the story of a year in the shearwater’s life, he threads the inspirational influence of his Hebridean grandmother who instilled in him a love of wild places and wild animals.

Full of lightly-worn knowledge, acute human observation and self-deprecating humor, Shearwater brings to life a truly mysterious and charismatic bird.

Annie Lumsden, the Girl from the Sea par David Almond (Candlewick Press)

Description : Annie Lumsden has hair that drifts like seaweed, eyes that shine like rock pools, and thoughts that dart and dance like minnows. She lives with her artist mother by the sea, where she feels utterly at home, and has long felt apart from the other girls at school. Words and numbers on the page don’t make sense to her, and strange maladies have been springing up that the doctors can’t explain. Annie’s mother says that all things can be turned into tales, and often she tells her daughter stories about the rocks she paints like faces, or the smoke that wafts from chimneys, or who Annie’s dad is. But one day Annie asks her mother for a different tale, something with better truth in it—and on that same day a stranger in town, drawn to the sight of a girl who seems akin to the sea, helps Annie understand how special she is. Featuring Beatrice Alemagna’s expressive illustrations, this enchanting coming-of-age tale by the award-winning David Almond borrows from lore and flirts at the edges of mystery.

A solitary girl with a kinship for the sea makes a wondrous discovery in a tale of identity and belonging from master storyteller David Almond.

Bug Blonsky and His Swamp Scout Survival Guide par E.S. Redmond (Candlewick Press)

Description : In an uproarious follow-up to Bug Blonsky and His Very Long List of Dont's, Bug takes early chapter book readers along on a weekend Swamp Scout trip. At Camp Win-Kee-Noo, you can earn merit patches for “paying attention” and “following directions,” but not for any of the things Bug excels at—stuff like armpit farting and being wiggly. As a True Bigfoot Believer, the only patch Bugs wants on his Swamp Scout vest is the Curious Creature patch for spotting an odd or uncommon animal. Know-it-all Abner insists that if Bigfoot were real, he would be listed in the “Terrible Things to Avoid” section of their official Swamp Scout survival guide. Leave it to Bug to write his own guide, jam-packed with tips and tricks for making the most (mischief) out of camp . . . plus a few startling discoveries. Funny, irreverent, fast-paced, and packed with comic illustrations, Bug’s second outing will keep young readers in stiches (and possibly out of poison ivy).

Bug Blonsky is back, making mischief at camp, tracking Bigfoot, and entertaining readers with another madcap list: his “unofficial” Swamp Scout Survival guide.

Lord of Order par Brett Riley (Imbrifex Books)

Description : The Purge is here. New Orleans must die.

Long after the destruction of all electronic technology, the Bright Crusade rules the world as a fundamentalist Christian theocracy. Gabriel Troy is Lord of Order for the New Orleans Principality. For years, he and his deputies have fought to keep their city safe from the attacks of the Crusade’s relentless enemies, the Troublers—heretical guerillas who reject the Crusade’s rule and the church’s strict doctrines. As their crowning achievement, Troy’s forces capture the Troublers’ local leader. The city has never been more secure.

Alarming intelligence leaks from Washington: Supreme Crusader Matthew Rook plans to enact a Purge—the mass annihilation of everyone deemed a threat to the Crusade. Rook orders his forces to round up all but the blindly loyal and march them to New Orleans. Once the prisoners have been chained inside, the Crusaders will wall off the city and destroy the levees. The resulting deluge, reenacting the Biblical flood of Noah’s time and the city’s devastation during Hurricane Katrina, will kill everyone inside.

Forced to choose between the Crusade and the city he has sworn to protect, Troy and five other conflicted conspirators gird for battle, fully aware that the looming apocalypse will demand horrific choices, test their faith, and require them to join forces with their sworn enemies.

One Two Three par Laurie Frankel (Henry Holt and Company)

Description : From Laurie Frankel, the New York Times bestselling author of This Is How It Always Is, a Reese's Book Club x Hello Sunshine Book Pick, comes One Two Three, a timely, topical novel about love and family that will make you laugh and cry...and laugh again.

In a town where nothing ever changes, suddenly everything does...

Everyone knows everyone in the tiny town of Bourne, but the Mitchell triplets are especially beloved. Mirabel is the smartest person anyone knows, and no one doubts it just because she can’t speak. Monday is the town’s purveyor of books now that the library’s closed—tell her the book you think you want, and she’ll pull the one you actually do from the microwave or her sock drawer. Mab’s job is hardest of all: get good grades, get into college, get out of Bourne.

For a few weeks seventeen years ago, Bourne was national news when its water turned green. The girls have come of age watching their mother’s endless fight for justice. But just when it seems life might go on the same forever, the first moving truck anyone’s seen in years pulls up and unloads new residents and old secrets. Soon, the Mitchell sisters are taking on a system stacked against them and uncovering mysteries buried longer than they’ve been alive. Because it's hard to let go of the past when the past won't let go of you.

Three unforgettable narrators join together here to tell a spellbinding story with wit, wonder, and deep affection. As she did in This Is How It Always Is, Laurie Frankel has written a laugh-out-loud-on-one-page-grab-a-tissue-the-next novel, as only she can, about how expanding our notions of normal makes the world a better place for everyone and how when days are darkest, it’s our daughters who will save us all.

Ridgeline par Michael Punke (Henry Holt and Company)

Description : The thrilling, long-awaited return of the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Revenant

In 1866, with the country barely recovered from the Civil War, new war breaks out on the western frontier—a clash of cultures between a young, ambitious nation and the Native tribes who have lived on the land for centuries. Colonel Henry Carrington arrives in Wyoming’s Powder River Valley to lead the US Army in defending the opening of a new road for gold miners and settlers. Carrington intends to build a fort in the middle of critical hunting grounds, the home of the Lakota. Red Cloud, one of the Lakota’s most respected chiefs, and Crazy Horse, a young but visionary warrior, understand full well the implications of this invasion. For the Lakota, the stakes are their home, their culture, their lives.

As fall bleeds into winter, Crazy Horse leads a small war party that confronts Colonel Carrington’s soldiers with near constant attacks. Red Cloud, meanwhile, seeks to build the tribal alliances that he knows will be necessary to defeat the soldiers. Colonel Carrington seeks to hold together a US Army beset with internal discord. Carrington’s officers are skeptical of their commander’s strategy, none more so than Lieutenant George Washington Grummond, who longs to fight a foe he dismisses as inferior in all ways. The rank-and-file soldiers, meanwhile, are still divided by the residue of civil war, and tempted to desertion by the nearby goldfields.

Throughout this taut saga—based on real people and events—Michael Punke brings the same immersive, vivid storytelling and historical insight that made his breakthrough debut so memorable. As Ridgeline builds to its epic conclusion, it grapples with essential questions of conquest and justice that still echo today.

The Essence of Nathan Biddle par William J. Lewis (Greenleaf Book Group)

Description : The Essence of Nathan Biddle is a timeless, Southern Gothic-esque coming-of-age tale that unfolds on the Alabama coast in the 1950s. Protagonist Kit Biddle, nearing the end of his high school career, finds himself tangled in a web of spiritual quandaries and intellectual absurdities. His angst is only compounded by the psychological burden of his crazy uncle Nat, who sacrifices Kit’s metaphorical doppelganger, Nathan Biddle, on what the uncle claimed were direct orders from God. The murder of Nathan leaves Kit adrift, exacerbating his already compulsive struggle with existential questions about the meaning of his life.

When the enigmatic Anna abruptly dismisses him, Kit spirals into despair and self-destruction. Even Kit’s witty best friend, Eddie Lichtman, fails to appreciate the magnitude of Kit’s emotional struggle. But when Kit’s irrational decision to steal a maintenance truck and speed aimlessly down the highway ends in a horrific accident and months of both physical and emotional convalescence, Kit is forced to examine his perceptions of his life and his version of reality.

Yet tragedy leads to flickers of light in this exquisite novel: calamity focuses Kit’s mind and forces him to confront the problems plaguing him. And as Kit—who calls himself a grudging and belated fan of calamity—observes “It was calamity that gave me a moment of pause, an occasion for reassessment and redirection. I suffered both a breakdown and a breakthrough.” Readers will applaud as Kit’s tide begins to turn and he comes to terms with the necessity of engagement with life’s pain, pleasure . . . and absurdity.

An intelligent, clever and captivating tale told in the literary style of a bildungsroman, The Essence of Nathan Biddle soars in the spaces that exist between darkness and light, lost and found, hopelessness and hope. Beautifully written, profoundly moving, and resplendent with characters destined to remain with readers long after the last page is turned, The Essence of Nathan Biddle is unforgettable.

Lifelines par Dr. Leana Wen (Henry Holt and Company)

Description : From medical expert Leana Wen, MD., an insider’s account of public health and its crucial role—from opioid addiction to global pandemic—and an inspiring story of her journey from struggling immigrant to being one of Time’s 100 Most Influential People

“Public health saved your life today—you just don’t know it,” is a phrase that Dr. Leana Wen likes to use. You don’t know it because good public health is invisible. It becomes visible only in its absence, when it is underfunded and ignored, a bitter truth laid bare as never before by the devastation of COVID-19.

Leana Wen—emergency physician, former Baltimore health commissioner, CNN medical analyst, and Washington Post contributing columnist—has lived on the front lines of public health, leading the fight against the opioid epidemic, outbreaks of infectious disease, maternal and infant mortality, and COVID-19 disinformation. Here, in gripping detail, Wen lays bare the lifesaving work of public health and its innovative approach to social ills, treating gun violence as a contagious disease, for example, and racism as a threat to health.

Wen also tells her own uniquely American story: an immigrant from China, she and her family received food stamps and were at times homeless despite her parents working multiple jobs. That child went on to attend college at thirteen, become a Rhodes scholar, and turn to public health as the way to make a difference in the country that had offered her such vast possibilities.

Ultimately, Wen insists, it is public health that ensures citizens are not robbed of decades of life, and that where children live does not determine whether they live.

Test Gods par Nicholas Schmidle (Henry Holt and Company)

Description : In the spirit of The Right Stuff, updated for the 21st century, Test Gods is an epic story about extreme bravery and sacrifice, about the thin line between lunacy and genius. Most of all, it is a story about the pursuit of meaning in our lives—and the fulfillment of our dreams.

Working from exclusive inside reporting, New Yorker writer Nicholas Schmidle tells the remarkable story of the test pilots, engineers, and visionaries behind Virgin Galactic’s campaign to build a space tourism company. Schmidle follows a handful of characters—Mark Stucky, Virgin’s lead test pilot; Richard Branson, the eccentric billionaire funding the venture; Mike Moses, the grounded, unflappable president; Mike Alsbury, the test pilot killed in a fatal crash; and others—through personal and professional dramas, in pursuit of their collective goal: to make space tourism a reality.

Along the way, Schmidle weaves his relationship with his father—a former fighter pilot and decorated war hero—into the tragedies and triumphs that Branson’s team confronts out in the Mojave desert as they design, build, and test-fly their private rocket ship. Gripping and novelistic, Test Gods leads us, through human drama, into a previously unseen world—and beyond.

The Raging 2020s par Alec Ross (Henry Holt and Company)

Description : Alec Ross, New York Times bestselling author of The Industries of the Future, offers a gripping, accessible account of how huge corporations have started acting like nations and how everyday people can help repair the fragile power balance between government and business.

Starting with the industrial revolution, companies have held the power to shape our daily lives in ways both positive and negative, while the state held the power to make them fall in line, and the people held the power to choose their leaders. This compact, through ups and downs, stood firm for 150 years. But in the latest wave of globalization, the balance has shaken loose.

As the market consolidates under fewer and larger companies, the lines between Walmart and the Halls of Congress have become razor thin. It’s in the interest of private companies to behave like nations—to invest in defense, foreign contracts, data mining, and intelligence. And when the government is bogged down in bureaucratic negotiations and partisan wars, unable to act on healthcare, wage increases, and climate change, people begin to look to nimble, powerful companies to solve these problems—and to be our moral standard–bearers. But all is not lost. As Walter Isaacson said about Ross's first book, "The future is already hitting us, and Ross shows how it can be exciting rather than frightening.”

In The Raging 2020s, Ross weaves insights from some of the world’s most influential thinkers—including Jeff Bezos, Bill Gates, and Xi Jinping—into fascinating stories of corporate activism and malfeasance, government failure and renewal, and innovative economic and political models being implemented around the world, to propose a new social contract—one that benefits workers and everyday citizens in the face of unprecedented global change.

Your Turn par Julie Lythcott-Haims (Henry Holt and Company)

Description : New York Times bestselling author Julie Lythcott-Haims is back with a groundbreakingly frank guide to being a grown-up

What does it mean to be an adult? In the twentieth century, psychologists came up with five markers of adulthood: finish your education, get a job, leave home, marry, and have children. Since then, every generation has been held to those same markers. Yet so much has changed about the world and living in it since that sequence was formulated. All of those markers are choices, and they’re all valid, but any one person’s choices along those lines do not make them more or less an adult.

A former Stanford dean of freshmen and undergraduate advising and author of the perennial bestseller How to Raise an Adult and of the lauded memoir Real American, Julie Lythcott-Haims has encountered hundreds of twentysomethings (and thirtysomethings, too), who, faced with those markers, feel they’re just playing the part of “adult,” while struggling with anxiety, stress, and general unease. In Your Turn, Julie offers compassion, personal experience, and practical strategies for living a more authentic adulthood, as well as inspiration through interviews with dozens of voices from the rich diversity of the human population who have successfully launched their adult lives.

Being an adult, it turns out, is not about any particular checklist; it is, instead, a process, one you can get progressively better at over time—becoming more comfortable with uncertainty and gaining the knowhow to keep going. Once you begin to practice it, being an adult becomes the most complicated yet also the most abundantly rewarding and natural thing. And Julie Lythcott-Haims is here to help readers take their turn.

Love Like Water, Love Like Fire par Mikhail Iossel (Bellevue Literary Press)

Description : Comedy and tragedy collide in stories of family life in Soviet Russia and the complexities of the immigrant experience

“Mikhail Iossel is an intense and thoughtful force for decency in the world.” —George Saunders

Love Like Water, Love Like Fire is an extraordinary book: funny and profound, moving and provocative. Rarely has life in the former USSR (or anywhere, for that matter) been portrayed with such a rich admixture of soaring observation and finely rendered detail. This is a gorgeously constructed collection by one of our wittiest and most insightful writers.” —Molly Antopol

“With an ear for the clumsiness of Russian bureaucratic nomenclature, an eye for Kafkaesque humiliations, and a heart that embraces all the paradoxes of being a Soviet Jew, Iossel casts a spell over the reader. Reading like Sholem Aleichem updated by Bruce Jay Friedman, these stories reflect the exciting evolution of Russian Jewish literature.” —Publishers Weekly

How to Make a Bird par Meg McKinlay (Candlewick Press)

Description : To make a bird, you’ll need hundreds of tiny, hollow bones, so light you can barely feel them on your palm. So light they can float on air. Next you’ll need feathers for warmth and lift. There will be more besides—perhaps shells and stones for last touches. But what will finally make your bird tremble with dreams of open sky and soaring flight? From award-winning author Meg McKinlay and celebrated artist Matt Ottley comes a lyrical and lovely picture book that shows how small things, combined with wonder and a steady heart, can transform into works of magic.

Stunning imagery and moving language let imagination take flight in an ethereal primer on making a bird.

Lost in Nowhere par Barbara Pietron (Scribe Publishing Company)

Description : Giveaway of 10 ARCs of Lost in Nowhere!

Not all dreams are meant to be followed.
Although Jeni has fully accepted her spiritual ability, she’s unnerved by the apparition of a pioneer girl asking for help. But as the girl’s tragic love story unfolds in her dreams, Jeni’s resistance melts and she resolves to save the soul of the ghost’s lost love.
Jeni dreams through the eyes of the ghost girl, Marielle, experiencing the ill-fated turn of events firsthand. When she discovers that her own impulses cause Marielle to act uncharacteristically, Jeni believes she can change the past. Despite warnings against meddling with time, Jeni forges ahead, convinced she can use the dreams to find the moment where the soul of Marielle’s lover might be saved.
Deep inside a dream and intent on her quest, Jeni is lured into a trap which binds her soul to the ghost girl. If she can escape the evil force that tricked her, she’ll still need to figure out how to return to the present. With no allies, no knowledge about crossing through time, and limited 18th century resources, Jen is terrified by her prospects. Failure will leave her soul trapped in the past, or worse… lost in nowhere.

Right Guy, Wrong Time: A #MeToo Love Story par Louise MacGregor (Frayed Edge Press)

Description : Edie has what seems like an almost-perfect life: awesome friends, a comfortable apartment she shares with the world’s greatest cat, and a dream job as a record label talent scout. But all is not what it seems. Conflicts are heating up in her life and at work, and things take a serious turn for the worse when she is raped while on a date. Navigating pleasure, work, friends, and her forever-changed mental state after her assault is hard enough. But when the perfect guy turns up at the worst possible time, Edie has to figure out what romance and sex mean to her in the aftermath of rape. This offbeat feminist romance moves beyond “girl meets guy,” dealing empathetically with sexual dysfunction, the ubiquity of rape culture, and what recovery can look like in the #MeToo era.

Although it tackles a difficult subject, Right Guy, Wrong Time does so in a way that empowers the reader. The protagonist of this New Adult novel is a relatable character who in many ways provides a good role model for others.

The Infamous Ratsos: Ratty Tattletale par Kara LaReau (Candlewick Press)

Description : Sid and Kurt have been picking on Ralphie’s friend Tiny, and when Ralphie tells them to stop, the two boys get sent to the principal’s office. Now Sid and Kurt are out to get Ralphie! They upend Ralphie’s lunch tray, whip the ball at his head on the playground, and pelt him with peashooters when the teachers aren't looking—ping! Ralphie’s brother, Louie, says he should tell a grown-up, but Ralphie—not wanting to be a Ratty Tattletale—decides to “fight fire with fire,” only creating new problems for himself. It’s time to tell Big Lou, his dad, who has a few wise ideas for putting things right. Full of the charm and fun that Ratsos fans love, this fifth adventure highlights the difference between standing up for yourself and taking vengeance—and shows why confiding in a trusted grown-up when you have a big problem can be the coolest thing to do.

When Ralphie Ratso stands up to some kids who bullied his friend, they vow revenge. But will ratting them out make it worse?

The Knockout par Sajni Patel (Flux)

Description : A rising star in Muay Thai figures out what (and who) is worth fighting for in this #ownvoices YA debut full of heart.

If seventeen-year-old Kareena Thakkar is going to alienate herself from the entire Indian community, she might as well do it gloriously. She’s landed the chance of a lifetime, an invitation to the US Muay Thai Open, which could lead to a spot on the first-ever Olympic team. If only her sport weren’t seen as something too rough for girls, something she’s afraid to share with anyone outside of her family. Despite pleasing her parents, excelling at school, and making plans to get her family out of debt, Kareena’s never felt quite Indian enough, and her training is only making it worse.

Which is inconvenient, since she’s starting to fall for Amit Patel, who just might be the world’s most perfect Indian. Admitting her feelings for Amit will cost Kareena more than just her pride—she’ll have to face his parents’ disapproval, battle her own insecurities, and remain focused for the big fight. Kareena’s bid for the Olympics could very well make history—if she has the courage to go for it.

An Everyday Cult par Gerette Buglion (Rootstock Publishing)

Description : A personal memoir and a wake-up call for society to recognize and reject the erosion of critical thinking, An Everyday Cult is an essential read for understanding how people fall prey to mind control and cultic manipulation.

Tracing the arc of eighteen years under a trusted teacher’s unethical tutelage, Gerette Buglion’s true-life story shows how her innocent quest for meaning is answered by a man who sees directly into her soul, awakening insight while simultaneously eroding her capacity for critical thinking. Through an increasingly murky and treacherous narrative, she lays bare the hallmarks of cultic manipulation—mind control that flies under the radar of human awareness—and implores society to wake up to its ever-present abuses of power.

An Everyday Cult imparts a universal story, demonstrating how recognition of cultic membership—largely riddled with preconceived notions—may be an essential key to human evolution.

Rome Reframed par Amy Bearce (Jolly Fish Press)

Description : Lucas Duran has been on the trip of a lifetime—six months traveling through Europe with his parents and two younger brothers. That is, the trip of a lifetime for someone else. Lucas wants nothing more than to be home in Austin, Texas, with his friends, and it shows in his schoolwork that he’s been emailing to his teachers. He can't wait to get out of Rome, the last stop on their trip.

When his teachers give him an ultimatum—either turn in a phenomenal last project or you’ll fail the eighth grade—Lucas has to decide whether to give up or give in to the mystery of Rome. And after a cryptic palm reader hands him a weird-looking coin to throw in the Trevi Fountain, Lucas finds himself transported to ancient Rome at each new tourist destination. As his hops back through time become more personal, it seems the magic of Rome is determined to help Lucas gain more than an A+ project. Can he fix his future before his time in the past is over?

Sea of Kings par Melissa Hope (Jolly Fish Press)

Description : Thirteen-year-old Prince Noa has hated the ocean since the day it caused his mother’s death. But staying away from the sea isn't easy on his tropical island home, where he's stuck trying to keep up with his dim-witted and overconfident younger brother Dagan—the brawn to Noa’s brains.

When a vengeful pirate lays siege to their home, Noa and Dagan narrowly escape with their lives. Armed with a stolen ship, a haphazardly assembled crew, and a magical map that makes as much sense as slugs in a salt bath, the brothers set sail for the realm’s other kingdoms in search of help.

But navigating the sea proves deadlier than Noa’s worst fears. To free his home, Noa must solve the map’s confusing charts and confront the legendary one-eyed pirate before an evil force spreads across the realm and destroys the very people Noa means to protect.

The Secrets of Star Whales par Rebecca Thorne (Jolly Fish Press)

Description : On the small space station Azura, Maxion Belmont is constantly torn between his two passions—engineering and music. Both are hobbies handed down from his father, who died two years ago. While his hydrodriver is great for repairing starship parts, his father’s old string instrument tugs at the latent grief Max hides from his mom and classmates with each chord he strums.

When a foreign starship appears on the horizon, Azura welcomes its first tourist in years. But there’s something weird about Mr. Hames, the stranger-turned-substitute-teacher. He has no idea how to teach and keeps raving about the existence of alien creatures in the vacuum of space: star whales.

As Max and the rest of Mr. Hames’s class-turned-starship-crew begin to uncover the mysteries of the star whales, they discover they aren’t the only ones looking for the elusive creatures—and not every whaler has good intentions.

Blood Pact (Youkai 2) par Courtney Maguire (City Owl Press)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : "In Hiro’s world, youkai are a supernatural story used to scare children into obedience, and to keep men out of back alleys and brothels. Until Sakurai Hideyoshi walks through his door with a fantastical tale of a samurai who had killed a thousand men and drank the blood of his enemies, a man that lived in darkness but sought beauty to keep it at bay.

A story both terrifying and romantic…and completely ridiculous.

Unless it is true.

Convinced something softer lurks behind Hideyoshi’s hard mask, Hiro follows him home. And discovers the story is real.

Only instead of the blood of his enemies, it is innocent blood taken.

Hideyoshi tells him never to return. Yet after Hiro’s mother is mortally wounded, Hiro runs back to the one being he knows with the power to save her. When Hideyoshi can’t, Hiro begs him for the next best thing: the power to avenge her.

As Hiro becomes youkai, he faces a new threat, something darker, older, and far more dangerous. With Hideyoshi at his side, Hiro must decide what he’s willing to sacrifice—and what he’s willing to do—to protect this new life before he loses everything for a second time.

Fatherless Sons-The Silent Abuse par Doyle E. Duke (The Ardent Writer Press)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : He was my dad. He worked. We never went hungry but love and empathy were foreign to him, just like his father. Distance of heart and mind defined both of them. Emotional and physical abuse were regular occurrences. When Dad was away, which was often, it was his selfish desires and lusts that took priority, his money, the family life blood, drained in gambling and carousing. His lifestyle denied us comfort and love, and that practice left a bleeding hole, especially to the young who fail to learn compassion.
For those of you who are secure in the knowledge of a loving and caring father, try to imagine a life where you were forced to admit, "No, my father did not love me."
Fatherless Sons is my story, but it is also the story of my father, grandfather, and son. It is the story of plural generations of young men struggling without proper parental training. Like weak links in a chain, they find themselves in the role of parent without the skills or knowledge to succeed. Many times, through a sheer desire to avoid the errors of their fathers, they overcome and provide a stable home life for their children. However, too often, the failed results are recorded upon criminal court records.

Faultland par Suzy Vitello (Ooligan Press)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : eBook format is .pdf

Being a Sparrow child has never been simple. Olivia, Sherman, and Morgan all have their faults, and they all cope with their tumultuous childhood in their own unstable ways: Olivia leads an excessive lifestyle, Morgan cycles through risky behaviors, and Sherman dabbles in morally precarious business practices. Up until now, they have kept their family from completely crumbling; but the cracks in their relationships are about to be unearthed. As their shaky foundations collide, an earthquake levels their city.

Olivia treks across a mutilated Portland to reach her family; Sherman finds it in himself to protect his siblings from militia looters and thugs; and Morgan uncovers the past wrongs of her parents. To make matters worse, their shelter is in the path of a mass of loose earth repeatedly shaken by aftershocks.

When the siblings finally reunite, their new task is to survive long enough to be medevaced from their childhood home in the face of an impending landslide. Previously separated by secrets and resentments, they realize they are now united by survival. If resources don't run out, if sickness doesn't overtake them, if alt-right militia members don't intervene, and if the wet mass of land speeding toward their makeshift shelter doesn't bury them, they will have to navigate their past traumas and their parents' mistakes. Only then can they honor those they have lost—and survive as a family.

But somebody is playing games with them, and that person is aware of her past. Is someone close to the investigation involved? What is the purpose of the game and how many people will the murderer sacrifice in the race to win it?

Description : eBook format is .pdf

Isaac knew Heritage Camp would be different this year: he was different. While he had accepted who he was, he wasn't sure how his peers would feel. What he didn't expect was having to investigate the sudden death of his camp counselor.

Sergeant Mikie O'Malley is called to work on the case, but she finds herself distracted by the fact that the victim was adopted, reminding her of a recent inheritance that has her questioning what family really means.

Located outside of Portland, Oregon, Heritage Camp is a summer retreat for adopted international children where adoptees can explore their identities and bond over their shared experiences. When camp counselor Paul goes into fatal anaphylactic shock one evening, everyone believes it to be a tragic accident.

Spanning seven generations and traveling from Martinique to Montreal, New York, and Philadelphia, weaving magic and mystery with the hard truths of their times, the Rougeaux family comes alive on every page.

Laurel Everywhere par Erin Moynihan (Ooligan Press)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : eBook format is .pdf

Fifteen-year-old Laurel Summers couldn’t tell you the last words she spoke to her mother and siblings if her life depended on it. But she will never forget the image of her mother’s mangled green car on the freeway, shattering the boring world Laurel had been so desperate to escape. Now she can’t stop seeing the ghosts of her family members, which haunt her with memories of how life used to be back when her biggest problem was the kiss she shared with her best friend Hanna.

After the accident, Laurel and her dad are left to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives. Her dad is struggling with his grief and depression, unable to cope with the loss of his family. He seeks a way out of his pain, leaving Laurel behind while he struggles to cope with his own mental illness. She is desperate to find a way to hold everything together again and help her father come to terms with the loss so he can come back to her.

Laurel tries to make sense of her pain with the help of her grandparents, her two best friends, and some random strangers. As she struggles to understand who she is without her family, she must come to terms with the items on her List of Things Not to Talk About, learn to trust her dad again, and—on top of it all—keep her heart open to love in the wake of her immense loss, eventually learning that it’s OK to not be OK.

Sharing Violet par Malcolm Lloyd (BookWhisperer)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : Imagine me: single, middle-aged and spending my days teaching English Literature at my local University. Sounds pretty standard, right? And for a long while, life was just that way. Until Violet came into the picture.

She was the last person that I would expect to enter into my world; Beautiful, intelligent and most of all, young. Too young, especially for me. Now, before you scold me for indulging in the forbidden fruit, you must know that I resisted all her advances for a very long time. Days, months, and years of turning a blind eye to the most blindingly irresistible force that was Violet.

Until that one fated day when she stormed into my office, just days before her graduation; the dam inevitably shattered. And the rest is history.

And yet, beyond the unexpected, there was one thing in our relationship that neither of us could see coming.

So this is where our story begins. Behind the closed doors of our bedroom and within the worshipped walls of our sex club adventures, we opened our eyes to a whole new dimension of pleasure and fantasy. As we explored our deepest kinks and as we stretched ourselves to the furthest recesses of our wildest imaginations, we found ourselves writing this collection here for you to enjoy.

After all, there is definitely enough pleasure to go around.

Indulge yourself in Sharing Violet, a compilation of some of the sexiest episodes of our now decade-long affair. We hope you enjoy reading it as much as we loved living it.

Shooting Limpkins par Ricky Ginsburg (Black Rose Writing)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : The man dropped his chin to his chest and whispered, “Yes, it’s Nina. It’s my wife.”

The tears came a few minutes later. Almost as though he had been meditating. Not sobs, but the refined tears of a wealthy man who was trying to decide who to call first–his lawyer or hers. His eyes were dripping cold tears into a bucket of ice and nothing was melting.

“I’m sorry for your loss, sir.” I reached out and touched his shoulder. You cold bastard.

Tino came around the chairs and was about to say something, when a shout from one of the cops came from behind the Ferrari.

“Gun!”

There are dark places beneath the cypress, and monsters that lurk in the murky water.

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : "Ayra is the monster that slays monsters—a fate she never wanted. Forced on her by her brother Calder, a man who bit in countless new werewolves to awaken the power of the reaper, she now has no choice.

The responsibility falls on hers. Not only does she have to put down rabid werewolves, but she must stop Calder from exposing them to the world, and thereby risking the annihilation of their kind.

But she won't be alone.

Vidar, the crush of her childhood, has returned from Iceland. Trained by monks to help guide and protect her, he insists on traveling with her. But is it her, he wants, or the reaper?

It shouldn't matter, but it does, even as her family promises her to a man she does not love. As they are dragged deeper into a plot involving the fate of the Norse Gods, Vidar is all she can think about.

He deserves a life, a mate, a pack. Ayra only brings death.

If they can't get past their would-have-been romance and focus on the future of their kind, there may be no future…for any of them.

The Awakening of Meena Rawat par Anoop Judge (Black Rose Writing)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : Every day, twenty-eight-year-old Meena Rawat is hounded by inner voices reminding her to be grateful for the middle-class American life she has—even if she is stuck in an unhappy marriage. She and her daughter are both safe, clothed, and fed, more than she could say for herself as a child. Born into the “Untouchables” caste in a small village in North India, Meena frequently relives the nightmare of abuses and slurs she suffered in an orphanage. There is only one bright spot in her memories: the fellow ‘Untouchable’ orphan who became her best friend and first love, Ramu.
When Ramu reappears in her new American life, he’s different. Unlike her, he has cast off the shame of their upbringing and become a confident entrepreneur. Their meeting rekindles a lost passion and the two eventually discuss their obligation to help children from the outcast community they left behind. Meena fantasizes about a future with him, but will her obligations to her daughter—and the certainty that she would lose custody—keep her chained?

The Bridge par J.S. Breukelaar (Meerkat Press)

Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

Description : Meera and her twin sister Kai are among thousands of hybrid women—called Mades—bred by the Father in his Blood Temple cult. Meera is rescued by a mysterious healer and storyteller, Narn, but her sister, Kai, does not survive the Father’s “unmaking”—although Kai may not have accepted that yet and still follows Meera around. Years later, when the cult is discovered and abolished, Meera, still racked with guilt and grief, enrolls in college to take advantage of a generous new Redress Program. When Narn’s conjure stories buy Meera a free ride to a notorious horror reading series, she is soon the darling of the lit set, feted by the other students, finally whole, finally free of the idea that she should have died instead of her sister. But college is not all it seems—Narn has lost a sister too, and Meera agrees to try and find her if Narn will keep feeding Meera the stories that are opening her up to memories she’s never acknowledged, secrets she’s never wanted to know, about Narn’s and the Father’s connection to a violent campus stalker. Time is closing in and Meera is afraid of where she stands on the bridge between worlds—fearful of what waits on the other side.

But as the years pass, riddled with distrust and regret, he fails to maintain the relationships that matter the most.

    A Dark and Secret Place par Jen Williams (Crooked Lane Books)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : For fans of Kathleen Barber and Julia Heaberlin comes a chilling psychological suspense from award-winning author Jen Williams about a woman who discovers her late mother had a decades-long secret correspondence with a serial killer, begging the question: how well do we know our own family and even ourselves?

    When prodigal daughter Heather Evans returns to her family home after her mother’s baffling suicide, she makes an alarming discovery–stacks and stacks of carefully preserved letters from notorious serial killer Michael Reave. The “Red Wolf,” as he was dubbed by the press, has been in prison for over twenty years, serving a life sentence for the gruesome and ritualistic murders of several women across the country, although he has always protested his innocence. The police have had no reason to listen, yet Heather isn’t the only one to have cause to re-examine the murders. The body of a young woman has just been found, dismembered and placed inside a tree, the corpse planted with flowers. Just as the Red Wolf once did.

    What did Heather’s mother know? Why did she kill herself? And with the monstrous Red Wolf safely locked inside a maximum security prison, who is stalking young women now? Teaming up with DI Ben Parker, Heather hopes to get some answers for herself and for the newest victims of this depraved murderer. Yet to do that, she must speak to Michael Reave herself, and expose herself to truths she may not be ready to face. Something dark is walking in the woods, and it knows her all too well.

    Sirgrus Blackmane Demihuman Gumshoe and The Dark-Elf par William Schlichter (BHC Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Bacardi and Coke. Neat.

    Not the usual drink of choice for a mountain dwarf. Then again, Detective Sirgrus Blackmane is no ordinary dwarf—at least not since the Great War. Being a gumshoe during Prohibition might appear glamorous, with secret speakeasies, all-night cocktail parties, and scantily clad women displaying their knees, but crime and conspiracy lurk beneath the city’s shining illusion.

    When the human half of the Mason and Blackmane Detective Agency is found dead at the scene of a rum-running bust, Sirgrus vows to find the killer. But this quest for justice leads him straight into a tangled web of underhanded deals with demihuman mobsters who are fighting for control of the rum supply.

    And when two more corpses turn up, Sirgrus must work double-time if he wants to find the killer—and avoid turning up dead at the next crime scene.

    Description : An explosive debut novel rooted in history, perfect for readers of Lincoln Child, Andy McDermott, and Frederick Forsyth.

    New York cop Joe Krueger is about to arrest a notorious drug pusher when his life changes forever. He witnesses a bomb tear through one of the city's biggest Jewish museums, leaving dozens dead.

Piecing the clues together, he discovers that his grandfather had been ordered to recover the True Cross for the Third Reich, and that modern-day neoNazis are racing to complete his mission.

    Armed with little more than a burning desire to expose this plot, Joe travels across Europe and the Holy Land fighting to stop these men and their plan to tip the globe into another world war.

    The Wipe par Nik Abnett (NewCon Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Dharma Tuke inhabits a near future where society has been radically reshaped following the Deluge – a worldwide pandemic – where people are accustomed to walking through chemical Wipes when entering a building or even a different room, and where the role of family has been marginalised, familial ties discouraged under the ‘new normal’.

    But Dharma is curious, and sets about quietly researching her past, tracing her recent ancestry in hope of discovering living relatives, and discovering what life was like both before and during the Deluge. What she unwittingly uncovers will have far reaching repercussions both for herself and for the whole of society.

    In The Wipe, Nik Abnett has produced a narrative that is sometimes touching, sometimes harrowing, but always fascinating; a tale of determination and perseverance against the odds and, ultimately, a story about the importance of family, friendship, and love.

    Killing Icarus par Paul Kemprecos (Suspense Publishing)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Art historian Abi Vickers has hit the proverbial wall. Her husband ran off with his secretary, leaving Abi in financial ruin from his bad investments. Her galleries, her reputation, her apartment in Boston’s toney South End have been ripped from her life by an unforgiving legal system.

    When an old mentor offers her a temporary job and the use of his cottage overlooking Cape Cod Bay, she hopes the sun-drenched scenery that inspired artist Edward Hopper will help pull her life back together. As she leaves Boston for the windswept cliffs of Truro, she looks forward to calm days, spectacular sunsets, and the mind-cleansing practice of Zen archery.

    But her hope for tranquility is soon shattered when she learns that a historic aviation event is about to be reenacted practically on her doorstep. Suddenly, instead of finding sanity, Abi wonders if she’s going insane—especially when she starts seeing shadows moving across the star-speckled night sky.

    Only after she discovers a deadly WWII secret in a long-lost Hopper sketch does she realize the troubles that plagued her in Boston were child’s play compared to the dangers she’s about to face: From the deadly cat-and-mouse game she must play with hired killers on the Nantucket ferry, to the threats that seem to emanate from an old barn near a fortress-like abandoned mansion. Even with the help of a small town police officer dealing with his own personal baggage, and a German journalist who is not what he appears to be, Abi must tap into intellectual and physical resources she never knew she possessed if she wants to survive.

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

But, when they are caught up in the diabolical actions of a secret organization, patterned after the 11th Century’s Hashashiyan, or Order of Assassins, their trip becomes a nightmare of herculean proportion.

    The Carnevale Conspiracy is an epic tale that brings together international intelligence agencies; a cadre of assassins inspired by a 900-year-old sect and their leader, the Old Man of the Mountain; a global assassination campaign that targets Western leaders; an intrepid MOSSAD agent; and a cast of heroic characters and evil traitors.

    Fans of Joseph Badal’s Danforth Saga will find this 7th in the series full of the tension, action, and authenticity they have come to expect and enjoy.

    The Porch: Meditations on the Edge of Nature par Charlie Hailey (University of Chicago Press)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Come with us for a moment out onto the porch. Just like that, we’ve entered another world without leaving home. In this liminal space, an endless array of absorbing philosophical questions arises: What does it mean to be in a place? How does one place teach us about the world and ourselves? What do we—and the things we’ve built—mean in this world? In a time when reflections on the nature of society and individual endurance are so paramount, Charlie Hailey’s latest book is both a mental tonic and a welcome provocation. Solidly grounded in ideas, ecology, and architecture, The Porch takes us on a journey along the edges of nature where the outside comes in, hosts meet guests, and imagination runs wild.

    Hailey writes from a modest porch on the Homosassa River in Florida. He sleeps there, studies the tides, listens for osprey and manatee, welcomes shipwrecked visitors, watches shadows on its screens, reckons with climate change, and reflects on his own acclimation to his environment. The profound connections he unearths anchor an armchair exploration of past porches and those of the future, moving from ancient Greece to contemporary Sweden, from the White House roof to the Anthropocene home. In his ruminations, he links up with other porch dwellers including environmentalist Rachel Carson, poet Wendell Berry, writers Eudora Welty and Zora Neale Hurston, philosopher John Dewey, architect Louis Kahn, and photographer Paul Strand.

    As close as architecture can bring us to nature, the porch is where we can learn to contemplate anew our evolving place in a changing world—a space we need now more than ever. Timeless and timely, Hailey’s book is a dreamy yet deeply passionate meditation on the joy and gravity of sitting on the porch.

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Available in pdf format.
    An anthology of short stories by twenty different authors.
    We present, for your enjoyment, twenty stories of time travel.
    The characters in each of these stories are having trouble. Some have trouble with their equipment, some have trouble with what they find, others are having trouble with unexpected consequences of their travels.
    Some travelers intentionally reach out to their past or future selves, others work to avoid this. Some travelers focus on the future, others focus on the past, a few look in both directions.
    Travelers travel by time machine, cell phone, time cap, elevator, compass, or without the need for a device at all.
    And then there are the mistakes made and paradoxes created when you mess around with time. So we finish up with a story where the task is to fix the problems we’ve created by traveling in time.


    As always, each story in the Read on the Run series of anthologies is short, to suit your busy lifestyle.

    Alien Stories par E.C. Osondu (BOA Editions, Ltd.)

    Ce livre est un livre électronique, et non un livre papier.

    Description : Celebrated Nigerian-born writer E.C. Osondu delivers a short-story collection of nimble dexterity and startling originality in his BOA Short Fiction Prize-winning Alien Stories.

    These eighteen startling stories, each centered around an encounter with the unexpected, explore what it means to be an alien. With a nod to the dual meaning of alien as both foreigner and exterrestrial, Osondu turns familiar science-fiction tropes and immigration narratives on their heads, blending one with the other to call forth a whirlwind of otherness. With wry observations about society and human nature, in shifting landscapes from Africa to America to outer space and back again, Alien Stories breaks down the concept of foreignness to reveal what unites us all as ‘aliens’ within a complex and interconnected universe.
