Priya worked hard to pursue her premed dreams at Stanford, but a diagnosis of chronic Lyme disease during her sopho year sends her back to her loving but overbearing family in New Jersey—and leaves her wondering if she’ll ever be able to return to the way things were.

When Brigid suddenly goes offline, Priya does something out of character: she steals the family car and drives to Pennsylvania to check on Brigid. Priya isn’t sure what to expect, but it isn’t the horrifying creature that's shut in the basement.

With Brigid nowhere to be found, Priya begins to puzzle together an impossible but obvious truth: the creature might be a werewolf—and the werewolf might be Brigid.

An incredible story following two sisters, both deaf and raised in cultlike seclusion by deaf parents, and the shattering consequences that unfold when that isolation comes to an end

Sisters Lili and Dori Ackerman are deaf. Their parents beautiful, despondent Anna; fearsome and admired Alex are deaf too. Alex, a scrap metal collector and sometime prophet, opposes any attempts to integrate with the world of the hearing; to escape its destructive influence, the girls are educated at home. Deafness is no disability, their father says, but an alternative way of life, preferable by far to that of the strident, hypocritical hearing.

Lili and Dori grow up semi feral, living in a world they have created together. Lili writes down everything that happens, just the facts. And Dori, the reader, follows her. On the block where the girls spend their childhood, the family is united against a hostile and alien world. They watch the hearing like they would fish in an aquarium.

But when the outside world intrudes, the cracks that begin to form will span the rest of their lives. Separated from the family that ingrained in them a sense of uniqueness and alienation, Lili and Dori must relearn how to live, and how to tell their own stories.

Sly, surprising, and as sharp fanged as its protagonists, Yaara Shehori's Aquarium is a stunning debut that interrogates the practices of storytelling and storyhearing.

A History of Scars: A Memoir

From a writer whose work has been called “breathtaking and dazzling” by Roxane Gay, this moving, illuminating, and multifaceted memoir explores, in a series of essays, the emotional scars we carry when dealing with mental and physical illnesses—reminiscent of The Collected Schizophrenias and An Unquiet Mind. In this stunning debut, Laura Lee weaves unforgettable and eye opening essays on a variety of taboo topics. In “History of Scars” and “Aluminum’s Erosions,” Laura dives head first into heavier themes revolving around intimacy, sexuality, trauma, mental illness, and the passage of time. In “Poetry of the World,” Laura shifts and addresses the grief she feels by being geographically distant from her mother whom, after being diagnosed with early onset Alzheimer’s, is relocated to a nursing home in Korea. Through the vivid imagery of mountain climbing, cooking, studying writing, and growing up Korean American, Lee explores the legacy of trauma on a young queer child of immigrants as she reconciles the disparate pieces of existence that make her whole. By tapping into her own personal, emotional, and psychological struggles in these powerful and relatable essays, Lee encourages all of us to not be afraid to face our own hardships and inner truths.

Distorted (Alabaster Penitentiary, #1)

This is Alabaster Penitentiary…

Where they send you when the world thinks you’re dead. And trust me, you’ll wish you were.
We’re the stain on society. The freaks, the creeps, your favorite Netflix documentaries come to life.
They lock us up and throw away the key, because we deserve it.
But not me. I’m just a lowly bank robber. I don’t belong here, surrounded by psychopaths and killers with no remorse… At least, I don’t think I do.
Getting by unscathed is my top priority. Unfortunately for me and my fellow prisoners, those in charge are dangerous than we are.
You see, the guards run the show, and I seem to have caught the attention of the most twisted one.
He has a name, but it might as well be Officer. We move around one another like a sun and a moon, revolving in an axis of confused lust and torment until the truth is distorted, and the thing I once feared becomes that which I crave; my vile addiction, somehow so exquisite.

Reality warps in the dungeon, and I’m left wondering which prison is worse… the one holding my body, or my mind.

*DO NOT READ OR POST SPOILERS! I am begging you to think of your fellow readers, in your reviews, your posts… everywhere. Revealing plot twists is a dick move. And I promise, it’ll be fun to go in blind.

**Distorted is the first book in the Alabaster Penitentiary series. It is a full M/M romance, with HEA. Each book in this series is technically a standalone, though they are interconnected, so it will be recommended to read in order, as references to this story will be made in future books.

Distorted is intended for mature audiences and open minded readers ONLY! If you prefer the same old story, this book won’t be for you. This story is dark, probably darker for some than others, so please proceed with caution, and if you’re easily triggered, steer clear.

What to Say Next: Successful Communication in Work, Life, and Love—with Autism Spectrum Disorder

Using her personal experience living as a professional woman with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Sarah Nannery, together with her husband, Larry, offers this timely communication guide for anyone on the Autism spectrum looking to successfully navigate work, life, and love. When Sarah Nannery got her first job at a small nonprofit, she thought she knew exactly what it would take to advance. But soon she realized that even with hard work and conscientiousness, she was missing key meanings and messages embedded in her colleagues’ everyday requests, feedback, and praise. She had long realized her brain operated differently than others, but now she knew for sure: she had Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD). With help from her neurotypical partner—now husband—Larry, mostly in frantic IM chats, Sarah rose to Director of Development at one of the world’s largest nonprofits. Together they have tackled challenges in how Sarah navigates personal and professional relationships, how they navigate marriage and parenthood, all of which are differently challenging for someone with ASD. But she wonders, at times, how life would be different if she’d had to figure it all out herself. So, in What to Say Next, she offers advice, empathy, and straightforward strategies from her own tool kit—not only for others who see the world differently, but for their families, partners and colleagues. In What to Say Next, Sarah breaks down everyday situations—the chat in the break room, the last minute meeting, the unexpected run in—in granular detail, explaining not only how to understand the goals of others, but also how to frame your own. Larry adds his thoughts from a neurotypical perspective, sharing what was going on in his brain and how he learned to listen and enlighten, while supporting and maintaining Sarah’s voice. At a time when and people are being diagnosed with ASD—especially women and girls—this book tells important truths about what it takes to make it in a neurotypical world, and still be true to yourself.

No, there’s an uncontrollable anger inside him.
A rage filled hate I don’t understand.

Each time he pushes, I pull him right back to me.
I’ll keep him locked in my arms or pinned beneath me forever if that’s what it takes to keep him.

Until now.

best way possible I don tave enough words in the world to describe ow in love I am with imThe way Jude and Cardan dance around each other actually made my Sapphamire (Dragons of Dragonose heart race I

to old on to So I m officially ADDICTEDI can t say for sure what makes a good fantasy book for other people but for me these books are like crack I m like Fever series level addicted right now and I don t know Passionate Kisses Boxed Set how I can possibly wait for book three Also Cardan is evil and terrible and I am in love withim I wish I was sorryThis book got me so good The banter and sexual tension between Jude and Cardan Destiny and Power had me on the edge of my seat all googly eyed like a schoolgirl with a crush The political machinations lying and backstabbing are all so damn thrilling I saw literally nothing coming though I don t know if that was the author s genius or just because I was too immersed in the story to play detectiveI ll keep this vague for those who jude duarte if you see this im free thursday night are you free thursday night to My Rocky Romance Diary (Diaries of Kelly Ann, hang out on thursday night if you re free i d like toang out thursday night please message me back if you re free thursday night when i am free someone why do you like this bookme deep in an elaborate fantasy seuence in which Jude forces me onto a throne for The Café Book her own selfish gain and is an ambitious bitch to me and treats me terribly but also weave a lot of sexual tension uhhhhh well I just really like the plot twistsOkay but for real I already talked sexual tension uhhhhh well i just really like the uhhhhh well I just really like the twistsOkay but for real I already talked lot about why I loved The Cruel Prince so I guess I ll just give a uick summary antiheroes court intrigue power plays and a fish out of water in a world full of monsters but this time she s determined to seize the same power And it s badassJude is so great She s seriously becoming one of my favorite fictional characters of all time and I don t really know Lord John And The Brotherhood Of The Blade (Lord John Grey, how Her narrative voice is so strong shaping and characterizing the world arounder The strength of er voice perfectly counteracts the desperation we see within er to cling to power to not give up the few gains she Models Dont Eat Chocolate Cookies has made She s so delightfully unlikable and yet manages to gain audience sympathy at every moment The side charactersere are particularly great I particularly like the relationship between the Bomb the Roach the backstory we got for them ere was excellent the relationship between the Bomb the Roach the backstory we got for them ere was excellent is as fantastic as ever but I actually love what was done with Shalias Diary (Shalias Diary, her character I ll talk about this later The Wicked King is also pushed up by a series of interesting villains while I am emphatically not a Locke or Nicasia fan Taryn is intriguing and I want ofer and Madoc is always a delight Oh and then there s Cardan the Sort Of Love Interest who I find both incredibly compelling and very dislikableI think what I m most fascinated about with this book is Scruples Two how it plays with the dynamic ofumans wresting whatever power they can The idea of fairies not understanding the stakes of their own world on the level that What Janie Found (Janie Johnson, human characters do Vivi as someone who grew up a fairy does not understandow Jude was affected by er childhood she was never charmed or manipulated or forced to play the games that Jude was And the dynamic between Cardan and Jude is perfect Jude clinging to the little power she as over Cardan and Cardan being under someone s thumb just one timeI m not sure Silver Tower / Strike Force / Shadow Command how I felt about parts of the dynamic between Cardan and Jude there s a continuous lack of dictated consent in their interactions which makes sense for the situation and is still bothersome But also I m kind of obsessed with their relationship Theyave so much sexual tension and it kills me I cannot wait to see where it goes And also guys there were so many fucking plot twists I m laughing i Explosive Acts have no ideaow I even felt about the final twist but literally everything else was so fucking legit and I screamed about eight times reading this book Basically that was everything I liked about The Cruel Prince but like Jude is seriously one of my favorite fictional characters ever and the plot twists killed me and I m super into the romance And in unrelated news I m going into a coma now Holly you know what you did and I ll see you all next year If I m not dead yet Blog Goodreads Twitter Youtub.
