From the New York Times bestselling author of The Guest Room, a powerful story about the ways an entire life can change in one night: a flight attendant wakes up in the wrong hotel, in the wrong bed, with a dead man—and no idea what happened. #fiction #thriller

My name is Amber Reynolds. There are three things you should know about me:

1. I’m in a coma.

2. My husband doesn’t love me anymore.

3. Sometimes I lie.

Myke Cole, star of CBS's Hunted and author of the Shadow Ops series, debuts the Sacred Throne epic #fantasy trilogy with The Armored Saint, a story of religious tyrants, arcane war-machines, and #underground #resistance that will enthrall epic fantasy readers of all ages.

In a world where any act of #magic could open a portal to hell, the Order insures that no #wizard will live to summon #devils, and will kill as many innocent people as they must to prevent that greater horror. After witnessing a horrendous slaughter, the village girl Heloise opposes the Order, and risks bringing their wrath down on herself, her family, and her village.

"Ruthless and heartwrenching." —Robin Hobb

I’ve Loved You Since Forever is a celebratory and poetic testament to the timeless love felt between #parent and #child. This beautiful picture book is inspired by New York Times bestselling author and Today show co-anchor #Hoda Kotb’s heartwarming adoption of her baby girl, Haley Joy.

Tomi Adeyemi conjures a stunning world of dark magic and danger in her West African-inspired fantasy debut, perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Sabaa Tahir.

They killed my mother.

They took our magic.

They tried to bury us.

Now we rise.

Zélie Adebola remembers when the soil of Orïsha hummed with magic. Burners ignited flames, Tiders beckoned waves, and Zélie’s Reaper mother summoned forth souls.

But everything changed the night magic disappeared. Under the orders of a ruthless king, maji were killed, leaving Zélie without a mother and her people without hope.

Now Zélie has one chance to bring back magic and strike against the monarchy. With the help of a rogue princess, Zélie must outwit and outrun the crown prince, who is hell-bent on eradicating magic for good.

Danger lurks in Orïsha, where snow leoponaires prowl and vengeful spirits wait in the waters. Yet the greatest danger may be Zélie herself as she struggles to control her powers—and her growing feelings for an enemy.

Rao’s stirring debut novel (following the collection An Unrestored Woman) explores how far a woman will go to recapture the one sustaining relationship in her life. It’s 2001, and Poornima and Savitha are both considered poor marriage prospects in their Indian village of Indravalli, Poornima because she’s unattractive and defiant, Savitha because her family is desperately poor. When the two girls become acquainted, they recognize the value in one another that the rest of their world has failed to acknowledge. When, on the eve of Poornima’s eventual wedding to a man with imperfections of his own, tragedy befalls Savitha, the two girls are separated, seemingly forever. Affecting and rich in dramatic irony, the young women’s stories—told in alternating sections—follow their travels from village to city and eventually from India to Seattle. Although lengthy metaphysical musings threaten at times to derail the momentum, the narrative’s thematic consistency and emotional urgency will pull readers along. Vivid depictions of contemporary #Indian #culture and harrowing accounts of human trafficking—along with the novel’s ambiguous ending—will leave readers, and book clubs, with much to ponder and discuss.

#power is on, #coffee and #scones are fresh, see you soon😀

We rely on #willpower to create change in our lives...but what if we're thinking about it all wrong? In Willpower Doesn't Work, Benjamin Hardy explains that willpower is nothing more than a dangerous fad-one that is bound to lead to #failure. Instead of "white-knuckling" your way to change, you need to instead alter your surroundings to support your #goals. This book shows you how.

The world around us is fast-paced, confusing, and full of distractions. It's easy to lose focus on what you want to achieve, and your willpower won't last long if your environment is in conflict with your goals--eventually, the environment will win out. Willpower Doesn't Work is the needed guided for today's over-stimulating and addicting environment. Willpower Doesn't Work will specifically teach you:

How to make the biggest decisions of your life--and why those decisions must be made in specific settings

How to create a daily "sacred" environment to live your life with intention, and not get sucked into the cultural addictions

How to invest big in yourself to upgrade your environment and #mindset

How to put "forcing functions" in your life--so your default behaviors are precisely what you want them to be

How to quickly put yourself in proximity to the most #successful people in the world--and how to adapt their knowledge and skills to yourself even quicker

How to create an environment where endless #creativity and boundless #productivity is the norm

Benjamin Hardy will show you that nurture is far more powerful than your nature, and teach you how to create and control your environment so your environment will not create and control you.

From the internationally acclaimed and Man Booker Prize-winning author of "The Sea" and the Benjamin Black mysteries—a vividly evocative #memoir that unfolds around the author's recollections, experience, and imaginings of #Dublin.

As much about the life of the city as it is about a life lived, sometimes, in the city, John Banville's "quasi-memoir" is as layered, emotionally rich, witty, and unexpected as any of his novels.

With an American #president distracted by growing tensions in North #Korea and #Iran, an ominous new threat is emerging in #Moscow. A czar is rising in the Kremlin, a #Russian president feverishly consolidating power, silencing his opposition, and plotting a brazen and lightning-fast #military strike that could rupture the #NATO alliance and bring Washington and Moscow to the brink of #nuclear #war. #fiction

Mrs. #Sherlock Holmes tells the true story of Grace Humiston, the lawyer, detective, and first woman U.S. District Attorney who turned her back on New York society life to become one of the nation's greatest crime-fighters during an era when women were still not allowed to vote. After agreeing to take the sensational case of missing eighteen-year-old Ruth Cruger, Grace and her partner, the hard-boiled detective Julius J. Kron, navigated a dangerous web of secret boyfriends, two-faced cops, underground tunnels, rumors of white slavery, and a mysterious pale man, in a desperate race against time. #history

Welcome to the cursed town of Sparrow...

Where, two centuries ago, three sisters were sentenced to death for witchery. Stones were tied to their ankles and they were drowned in the deep waters surrounding the town.

Now, for a brief time each summer, the sisters return, stealing the bodies of three weak-hearted girls so that they may seek their revenge, luring boys into the harbor and pulling them under.

Like many locals, seventeen-year-old Penny Talbot has accepted the fate of the town. But this year, on the eve of the sisters’ return, a boy named Bo Carter arrives; unaware of the danger he has just stumbled into.

Mistrust and lies spread quickly through the salty, rain-soaked streets. The townspeople turn against one another. Penny and Bo suspect each other of hiding secrets. And death comes swiftly to those who cannot resist the call of the sisters.

But only Penny sees what others cannot. And she will be forced to choose: save Bo, or save herself. #teen #fiction

An Auntie Poldi Adventure

"Bass captures the essence of this unlikely band of brothers perfectly. This isn't a story about a #soccer team....More than anything, this is a story of #hope. The hope that brought thousands of Africans to a remote corner of the #America in search of a better life. The hope that made a city finally open its arms to the children of those #immigrants.
The hope that our future still might be better than our past."—Tom Caron, anchor, New England Sports Network #maine

"Roma makes the complex principles of structural #engineering accessible to everyone with clear explanations and engaging illustrations. It has made me suddenly look at every building I pass by in a new way!" - Ellen Stofan, former Chief Scientist at NASA - National Aeronautics and Space Administration

It's comforting to imagine that superstars in their fields were just born better equipped than the rest of us. When a co-worker loses 20 pounds, or a friend runs a #marathon while completing a huge project at work, we assume they have more #grit, more #willpower, more innate #talent, and above all, more #motivation to see their #goals through.

But that's not at actually true, as popular columnist Jeff Haden proves. "Motivation" as we know it is a myth. Motivation isn't the special sauce that we require at the beginning of any major change. In fact, motivation is a result of process, not a cause. Understanding this will change the way you approach any obstacle or big goal.

But his culinary ambition came during a formative era, and through him, America transformed into the most diverse food system ever created. #history

In the kingdom of Sempera, time is currency—extracted from blood, bound to iron, and consumed to add time to one’s own lifespan. The rich aristocracy, like the Gerlings, tax the poor to the hilt, extending their own lives by centuries. #teen #fantasy

Fifty years ago, Madeleine L'Engle introduced the world to A Wrinkle in Time and the wonderful and unforgettable characters Meg and Charles Wallace Murry, and their friend Calvin O'Keefe. Now their first three adventures are together in one volume. In the #Newbery Award winner A #WrinkleInTime, the children learn that Mr. Murry has been captured by the Dark Thing, and they must time travel to #Camazotz to save him. In A Wind in the Door, Meg, Calvin, and Mr. Jenkins (their grade-school principal) must travel inside C.W. and battle to save Charles's life—as well as the balance of the universe. And in A Swiftly Tilting Planet, Meg's brother Charles Wallace has 24 hours to stop the tragedy of nuclear war from occurring.
This edition of the first three novels in the Wrinkle in Time series is a distinguished new addition to Barnes & Noble's Collectible Editions classics. Each volume features an elegant bonded-leather binding, distinctive gilt edging, decorative endpapers, and a colorful ribbon bookmark. Collectible and durable, these volumes should be the cornerstones of every home library.

A witty and emotionally charged #novel that delves into the heart of a #marriage, and how those we love and think we know best can sometimes surprise us the most—from #1 New York Times bestselling author Sophie Kinsella

After ten years together, Sylvie and Dan have a comfortable home, fulfilling jobs, and beautiful twin girls, and they communicate so seamlessly they finish each other’s sentences. They have a happy marriage and believe they know everything there is to know about each other. Until it’s casually mentioned to them that they could be together for another sixty-eight years . . . and panic sets in. #fiction

The spectacular, true story of a scrappy teenager from New York’s Lower East Side who stowed away on the Roaring Twenties’ most remarkable feat of #science and daring: an #expedition to #Antarctica.

It was 1928: a time of illicit booze, of #Gatsby and Babe Ruth, of freewheeling fun. The Great War was over and American optimism was higher than the #stock market. What better moment to launch an expedition to Antarctica, the planet’s final #frontier? This was the #moon landing before the 1960s. Everyone wanted to join the adventure. Rockefellers and Vanderbilts begged to be taken along as mess boys, and newspapers across the globe covered the planning’s every stage.

Tara Westover was seventeen the first time she set foot in a #classroom. Born to #survivalists in the mountains of #Idaho, she prepared for the end of the world by stockpiling home-canned peaches and sleeping with her “head-for-the-hills” bag. In the summer she stewed herbs for her mother, a midwife and healer, and in the winter she salvaged metal in her father’s junkyard.

Her father distrusted the medical establishment, so Tara never saw a doctor or nurse. Gashes and concussions, even burns from explosions, were all treated at home with herbalism. The family was so isolated from mainstream society that there was no one to ensure the children received an #education, and no one to intervene when an older brother became violent.

When another brother got himself into #college and came back with news of the world beyond the mountain, Tara decided to try a new kind of life. She taught herself enough mathematics, grammar, and science to take the ACT and was admitted to #Brigham Young University. There, she studied psychology, politics, philosophy, and history, learning for the first time about pivotal world events like the Holocaust and the Civil Rights Movement. Her quest for knowledge transformed her, taking her over oceans and across continents, to #Harvard and to #Cambridge University. Only then would she wonder if she’d traveled too far, if there was still a way home. #memoir

An extraordinary look at what it means to grow #old and a heartening guide to well-being, "#Happiness Is a Choice" You Make weaves together the stories and #wisdom of six New Yorkers who number among the “oldest old”— those eighty-five and up.

In 2015, when the award-winning journalist John Leland set out on behalf of The New York Times to meet members of America’s fastest-growing age group, he anticipated learning of challenges, of #loneliness, and of the deterioration of body, mind, and quality of life. But the #elders he met took him in an entirely different direction. Despite disparate backgrounds and circumstances, they each lived with a surprising #lightness and #contentment. The reality Leland encountered upended contemporary notions of aging, revealing the late stages of life as unexpectedly rich and the elderly as incomparably wise.

Every #winter, Wren Silke is chased through the #forest in a warped version of a #childhood #game. The boys who haunt her are #judges, powerful and frightening pursuers, who know nothing of her true identity. If they knew she was an augur, their sworn #enemy, the game would turn deadly. #teen

Abraham #Lincoln is recognized as one of history's finest leaders, a great president when the United States was under tremendous strain. But suppose he were alive today? How would Lincoln deal with today’s high-pressure issues, from politics to business? #leadership

In Minnesota, 1918, journalist and author Curt Brown explores this monumental year through individual and community stories from all over the state, from residents of small towns up north obliterated by the #fire, to #government officials in metropolitan centers faced with the spread of a deadly and highly #contagious #disease, to soldiers returning home to all this from the "#war to end all wars." #history #flu

For the girls at #Forevermore, a sleepaway #camp in the Pacific Northwest, days are filled with swimming lessons, #friendship bracelets, and camp songs by the fire. Bursting with excitement and nervous energy, they set off on an overnight kayaking #trip to a nearby island.

"The first rule is that you don’t fall in #love,’ he said… ‘There are other rules too, but that is the main one. No falling in love. No staying in love. No daydreaming of love. If you stick to this you will just about be okay.'" #fiction

Frightening, eye-opening, and utterly enthralling, "Sister of Darkness" brings to light a world ruled by destruction, chaos and fear, and the woman who bravely fights to protect those who seeks her out.

She is also an #exorcist, doing her work pro bono and without advertising her services.
