Book Excerpt :

Let your hair down, Caroline, they said. It'll be fun, they said. I know I've closed myself off in a major way in the past year, ever since “the incident” where I messed up my life completely. It's past time I try to live again or just give up completely. But this is quite possibly the craziest thing I've ever done. In a last ditch effort to invigorate myself, I'm standing outside Oren Tenning's bedroom, I just peeled off the sexiest pair of underwear I own, and my hand is already raised to knock. My brother would disown me for doing anything with his best friend, and he'd probably kill Oren. But if I play my cards right, no one will ever know about this. Not even Ten. Maybe after tonight, I’ll finally get over this stupid, irrational crush I hate having on the biggest jerk I’ve ever met. Or maybe I’ll just end up falling for him even harder. Maybe I’ll discover there’s so much more to my crude, carefree hunk than meets the eye.

Book Short Summary:

A futuristic murder mystery! In a world of tomorrow too much like today, where man and machine co-exist in something less than harmony, and both are orchestrated by a shadow government... In the dark streets of a dystopian world, where the bright lights of the future have long been extinguished... In a teetering society built on the backs of the workers and underprivileged, there comes a man unlike any other. His name is Orlak. He has no memory of his past, no plan for his future. His hands have been replaced with robotic pretensions that can capture, caress or kill, of their own volition. He is a puzzle with ten missing pieces. Collecting the haunting series that appeared in the Caliber Press Anthology CALIBER PRESENTS and the one-shot ORLAK: FLESH AND STEEL, and was inspired by the Peter Lorre film "Mad Love" and the novel The Hands of Orlac, artist/creator Ken Holewczynski (Nosferatu; Mr. X; Beton Brut) and writer Rafael Nieves (Nosferatu; Hellstorm, Prince of Lies; Vampire: The Masquerade) take you on a sublime, harrowing journey of one man’s struggle to find himself, before he can kill - or be killed – again.

Book Short Summary:

I used to think everything was black and white, truth or lie, easy or hard, that if I could just escape my strict, overbearing, abusive father, my life would be perfect. But since I’ve found a reason to risk his wrath and leave, to help a friend in need, I’ve come to realize everything I thought I knew is wrong. Friends have their own agenda, honesty comes with a dosage of lie, easy doesn’t even exist, keeping secrets sucks, and love...love is the most painful thing of all. Maybe if Quinn Hamilton hadn’t asked me to skip classes for the day and help him pick out an engagement ring for my best friend, I wouldn’t have fallen for him so completely on that sunny Tuesday afternoon and I wouldn’t feel so conflicted. But I did, and I can’t take it back, no matter how hard I try. So I have to deal with the fact that even I’m not as good, or honest, or caring as I’d always thought I was, and no matter what I do next, someone’s going to get hurt. Probably me. -Zoey Blakeland

Once upon a time, there was this pampered rich girl who was kind of full of herself. She really only cared about appearances and hiding all her dark, ugly secrets under the guise of an opinionated snob.

On the other side of town, sexy, tattooed orphan, Patrick Ryan, can’t get a break. He’s out on parole for defending the last damsel in distress while trying to help her support her child, but all he wants is to find his one true love.

One kind of hero can save you from physical harm. Another can rescue you from a different kind of doom. To reach their dreams, Eva and Pick can save each other.

Junior in college. Star athlete. Constant attention from the opposite sex. On this campus, I'm worshiped. While seven hundred miles away, back in my hometown, I'm still trailer park trash, child of the town tramp, and older sibling to three kids who are counting on me to keep my shit together so I can take them away from the same crappy life I grew up in. These two opposing sides of myself never mix until one person gets a glimpse of the true me. I never expected to connect with anyone like this or want more beyond one night. This may be the real deal.Problem is Dr. Kavanagh's my literature professor.If I start anything with a teacher and we're caught together, I might as well kiss my entire future goodbye, as well as my family's and especially Dr. Kavanagh's.

But the chemistry between us is like bam! Our connection defies logic. And he's just so freaking hot. Being around him makes me feel more alive than I've ever felt before.

Three things in my life were fact. I needed Sarah to survive. I needed sex to remain sane. And I could never mix sex with Sarah. I just knew—deep in my marrow—that if I did, I’d somehow lose her.

So she stayed strictly in the friend zone. People probably thought I never went there with her because of her cerebral palsy, but f*ck them.

Now it’s all about to hit the fan, because how the hell do you resist the one person forbidden to you when she says please? --Brandt Gamble

Book Short Summary:

Depicting with humor and insight the pressure to be outwardly perfect, this novel for ages 10-13 shows how one girl develops compassion for her own and others’ imperfections. For 13-year-old Isabelle Lee, whose father has recently died, everything's normal on the outside. Isabelle describes the scene at school with bemused accuracy--the self-important (but really not bad) English teacher, the boy that is constantly fixated on Ashley Barnum, the prettiest girl in class, and the dynamics of the lunchroom, where tables are turf in a all-eyes-open awareness of everybody's relative social position. But everything is not normal, really. Since the dealth of her father, Isabelle's family has only functioned on the surface. Her mother, who used to take care of herself, now wears only lumpy, ill-fitting clothes, cries all night, and has taken every picture of her dead husband and put them under her bed. Isabelle tries to make light of this, but the underlying tension is expressed in overeating and then binging. As the novel opens, Isabelle's little sister, April, has told their mother about Isabelle's problem. Isabelle is enrolled in group therapy. Who should show up there, too, but Ashley Barnum, the prettiest, most together girl in class.

Book Short Summary:

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER New York Times bestselling author and acclaimed linguist John McWhorter argues that an illiberal neoracism, disguised as antiracism, is hurting Black communities and weakening the American social fabric. Americans of good will on both the left and the right are secretly asking themselves the same question: how has the conversation on race in America gone so crazy? We’re told to read books and listen to music by people of color but that wearing certain clothes is “appropriation.” We hear that being white automatically gives you privilege and that being Black makes you a victim. We want to speak up but fear we’ll be seen as unwoke, or worse, labeled a racist. According to John McWhorter, the problem is that a well-meaning but pernicious form of antiracism has become, not a progressive ideology, but a religion—and one that’s illogical, unreachable, and unintentionally neoracist. In Woke Racism, McWhorter reveals the workings of this new religion, from the original sin of “white privilege” and the weaponization of cancel culture to ban heretics, to the evangelical fervor of the “woke mob.” He shows how this religion that claims to “dismantle racist structures” is actually harming his fellow Black Americans by infantilizing Black people, setting Black students up for failure, and passing policies that disproportionately damage Black communities. The new religion might be called “antiracism,” but it features a racial essentialism that’s barely distinguishable from racist arguments of the past. Fortunately for Black America, and for all of us, it’s not too late to push back against woke racism. McWhorter shares scripts and encouragement with those trying to deprogram friends and family. And most importantly, he offers a roadmap to justice that actually will help, not hurt, Black America.

Book Short Summary:

The Perks of Being a Wallflower meets Revenge of the Nerds in this tale of a teen misfit who seeks to take down the bro next door, but ends up falling for his enemy’s sister and uncovering difficult truths about his family in the process. Tom Grendel lives a quiet life—writing in his notebooks, mowing lawns for his elderly neighbors, and pining for Willow, a girl next door who rejects the “manic-pixie-dream” label. But when Willow’s brother, Rex (the bro-iest bro ever to don a jockstrap), starts throwing wild parties, the idyllic senior citizens’ community where they live is transformed into a war zone. Tom is rightfully pissed—his dad is an Iraq vet, and the noise from the parties triggers his PTSD—so he comes up with a plan to end the parties for good. But of course, it’s not that simple. One retaliation leads to another, and things quickly escalate out of control, driving Tom and Willow apart, even as the parties continue unabated. Add to that an angsty existential crisis born of selectively reading his sister’s Philosophy 101 coursework, a botched break-in at an artisanal pig farm, and ten years of unresolved baggage stemming from his mother’s death . . . and the question isn’t so much whether Tom Grendel will win the day and get the girl, but whether he’ll survive intact. "Deep and uproarious all at once . . . A clever spin on a weighty classic." —Kirkus, starred review "An outstanding YA novel balancing comedy with substantial themes of love, death, and healing." —SLJ, starred review

Book Short Summary:

From the New York Times bestselling author of Stepbrother Dearest, comes a new forbidden STANDALONE romance. What happens when the one you want is the only one you can’t have? It was set in stone. Elle and I were getting married. After years of rebelling against everything good and wholesome, I finally gave in and took up with a nice girl. After a long-distance relationship, I moved into her family’s guesthouse so we could spend time together in the months before the wedding. Elle was unlike anyone I'd ever been with. She was so innocent, and I had to respect her choice to wait until after we were married to have sex. I’d accepted that as my fate--even learned to control my desires. Until I met her…the one. That was when restraint became a problem…especially since “the one” wasn’t Elle. It was her sister, Evangeline. And I was screwed. Told in alternating points of view, Sins of Sevin is a full-length standalone novel.

Book Short Summary:

Hidden somewhere, in nearly every major city in the world, is an underground seduction lair. And in these lairs, men trade the most devastatingly effective techniques ever invented to charm women. This is not fiction. These men really exist. They live together in houses known as Projects. And Neil Strauss, the bestselling author and journalist, spent two years living among them, using the pseudonym Style to protect his real-life identity. The result is one of the most explosive and controversial books of the last decade—guaranteed to change the lives of men and transform the way women understand the opposite sex forever. On his journey from AFC (average frustrated chump) to PUA (pick-up artist) to PUG (pick-up guru), Strauss not only shares scores of original seduction techniques but also has unforgettable encounters with the likes of Tom Cruise, Britney Spears, Paris Hilton, Heidi Fleiss, and Courtney Love. And then things really start to get strange—and passions lead to betrayals lead to violence. The Game is the story of one man's transformation from frog to prince to prisoner in the most unforgettable book of this generation.

I paid off my mom’s debt, the rent, my sister’s hospital bills. I put food on the table and kept eviction notices at bay. It was worth it. But was it worth the price of my soul? Two years later, this job has begun to kill me in every way but physically, until SHE comes along. Reese is the breath of fresh air I need. She makes me smile, she makes me laugh, she makes me want more. But how can we ever be together after all the choices I’ve made? Listing one mistake after another, these are my confessions and how we came through to the other side. *** The Forbidden Men series concludes with THE PRICE OF MASON by looping back to the beginning and retelling PRICE OF A KISS through his eyes.

Book Short Summary:

They're a perfect ten! For the first time, Alana Church has put together her ten favorite romance books. Join her as she shares tales of star-crossed lovers and sweet reunions! Sail on The Tides of Lust, meet a Gaelic Goddess, indulge in Innocent Passion, and meet The Horniest Angel! Remember, Idle Hands are The Devil's Playthings, so beware of Kali's Deadly Kiss! ~~~~~ PG Excerpt ~~~~~ From "Our Lusty Cheating Neighbor" Sandy’s eyes darted between Stephanie and myself, seemingly trying to judge our mood. “Sure,” she said at last. The door firmly shut behind us, hiding us from prying eyes. Sandy didn’t offer us any refreshment. Point for her, I thought. Don’t make it look like you’re happy to see us. Make us work for it. If Steph was fazed by Sandy’s unwelcoming attitude, she didn’t show it. She leaned back against a doorframe, her arms folded across her chest. “I’d like to talk to you,” she said softly, “about what you have been doing with John.” Have you ever seen a pair of carnivores face off? You don’t see it often, because why should lions and tigers and bears go after something with big-ass teeth and claws when there is smaller, easier prey about? Sandy should have had the upper hand. This was her home, after all. She was on her own turf. And by any standard measurement, she was the more attractive woman. She was taller, with longer legs, larger breasts, and her golden skin and honey-blond hair made her look like every teenage boys’ sex-fantasy come to life. It didn’t hurt that she was wearing something that belonged in a hair-metal music video – a crop-top t-shirt that clung to her chest as if molded, and a pair of bikini-cut panties that rode high on her hips and barely covered her crotch. But as the stand-off went on, something became apparent to me. My wife - smaller, dark-haired, with a more modest chest and dressed in her casual business attire, had the more commanding presence. She was a sleek, black-haired panther, and as Sandy and her engaged in their battle of wills, it was the taller woman who dropped her eyes, the same way a lovely, cheerful golden retriever would roll over for her human at the slightest excuse. Sandy looked away, and I knew Steph had won. “Please,” she said, her voice cracking. “Don’t tell Mis…don’t tell Monica.” “Monica?” I frowned. “What does she have to do with anything?” Sandra blew out her breath. “Mis…Monica was the first.” “The first what?” “The first hotwife. For Paradise Place. She did then what I am doing now. For years and years. And then there was another woman. And now there’s me,” she said proudly. “Monica chose me.” She sniffled suddenly. “But if I don’t convince you to go to bed with me, she might replace me. Or…or she might not punish me.” I frowned. “Don’t you mean she will punish you?” “John,” Steph said. “Let me handle this.” She took a sliding step closer to the taller woman. “Tell me, Sandy,” she said, her voice soft. “How does she punish you? Mistress Monica?” I blinked, finally putting together the clues. Monica a dominant? And Sandy her submissive? “Oh, Stephanie.” Sandy shivered happily, her eyes gleaming. “She does such wonderful things to me. If I’m very, very good, she will spank me, paddling my bottom until it’s hot and pink. “And if I’m just a little bit naughty, she might use the clamps.” I watched, awestruck, as the tips of her breasts stiffened in unison, tenting the fabric of her t-shirt until it seemed they would poke right through the thin cloth. “Lovely clamps that pinch me tight. Sometimes she uses the ones with a chain, and leads me around the house.” A finger went to her mouth, lingering over her bee-stung lips, seemingly unaware of our stares. “She makes me feel so good. Better than anyone else. Even the men, mostly.”

Book Short Summary:

What is poetry to me? For me poetry is an art of self expression through which a poet seeks bring into his experience an aesthetic encounter that enriches his life and spirit. Poetry can take birth from excitement, exhilaration, inspiration, observation, a sense of discovery and overwhelming sense of melancholy, anger or indignation. Though a poet endeavors to bring these experiences into the conscience of the reader and without the unseen presence of the reader he cannot articulate his inner most feelings when he is actually putting his poetry on paper he is and has to be alone with himself. At such moments of solitude poetry springs to life sublimating the poets being. To shape and mold this inner sense of being and belonging is the primary task of a poet.
