Deadly Secrets Tangled Lies Woven truths Incapable. Awkward. Artless. That’s what the other girls whisper behind her back. But sixteen-year-old Adelice Lewys has a secret: She wants to fail. Gifted with the ability to weave time with matter, she’s exactly what the Guild is looking for, and in the world of Arras, being chosen to work the looms is everything a girl could want. It means privilege, eternal beauty, and being something other than a secretary. It also means the power to manipulate the very fabric of reality. But if controlling what people eat, where they live, and how many children they have is the price of having it all, Adelice isn’t interested. Not that her feelings matter, because she slipped and used her hidden talent for a moment. Now she has one hour to eat her mom’s overcooked pot roast. One hour to listen to her sister’s academy gossip and laugh at her dad’s jokes. One hour to pretend everything’s okay. And one hour to escape. Because tonight, they’ll come for her.
Elle has survived 23 years as a human surrounded by vampires, but her mortality has never been a disadvantage until now. Trapped in a basement, she's waited to make her escape and get home to Boston. There will be no forgiveness for what Charles Allaway has done, this is the end of his House, and Ian and the House of Martials won't rest until he's dead. With a well-practiced poker face, Elle just wants to pretend nothing has happened, but Lexington sees the truth: she's not okay and she's still in danger. There is a Hunter from Court in town, and he's taking out the Bitten and anyone tied to them. Especially whoever has been curing them. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephanie Dillard.

Are you wondering how to go on after the death of someone you love? Are you longing for healing, peace, and a new sense of order in your world? This practical guide provides training in grief resilience, which is actually a skill set that can be learned, practiced, and incorporated into your life. Written by a licensed clinical social worker who is also a bereaved mother, the book presents a unique system of coping with death that combines insights from both her professional background and personal experience. This approach builds grief resilience and transforms the listener from heartache to healing, wellness, and growth. Losing someone you love can be a devastating experience. It is often excruciatingly painful and hard to wrap your mind around. Trying to take in the reality of death and then figuring out how to move forward can leave you overwhelmed, shattered, heartbroken, and frightened. And because it feels impossible to accept the unacceptable, we learn by osmosis to put misery on the back burner and pretend we're mostly okay. But we're not okay; this is not business as usual. We're left with that burning question: How do I go on? The 4 Facets of Grief is a fresh approach to navigating loss and death, incorporating the most current thinking on resilience and growth. 1.

Joining the ranks of Let's Pretend This Never Happened and Carry On, Warrior, a fierce, hysterically funny memoir that reminds us that comedy equals tragedy plus time. Twentysomething Nora McInerny Purmort bounced from boyfriend to boyfriend and job to job. Then she met Aaron, a charismatic art director and her kindred spirit. They made mixtapes (and pancakes) into the wee hours of the morning. They finished each other's sentences. They just knew. When Aaron was diagnosed with a rare brain cancer, they refused to let it limit their love. They got engaged on Aaron's hospital bed and married after his first surgery. They had a baby when he was on chemo. They shared an amazing summer filled with happiness and laughter. A few months later, Aaron died in Nora's arms in another hospital bed. His wildly creative obituary, which they wrote together, touched the world. Now Nora shares hysterical, moving, and painfully honest stories about her journey with Aaron. It's Okay to Laugh explores universal themes of love, marriage, work, (single) motherhood, and depression through her refreshingly frank viewpoint. A love letter to life in all of its messy glory and what it's like to still be kickin', It's Okay to Laugh is like a long chat with a close friend over a cup of coffee (or chardonnay). 1.

The man had seemed so innocent in the bar - okay, not *innocent*, per se. He’d been hot, hard, and possessed a butt that I wanted to bite like the last chocolate chip cookie in my stash. He’d also skipped out of town faster than a villain in a B movie, leaving me woefully unsatisfied. I’d chalked the whole incident up to a bad night stand and moved on with my life. That was before the news of a failed IUD. Before the plus sign. Before Jordan showed back up determined to make that night up to me. I didn’t want a baby or a payday or a sexy, stubborn man in my life. I wanted to go back in time and pretend none of it had happened. Unfortunately, my life had become all about that plus sign...and there wasn’t a damn thing I could do about it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Avery Caris.
