Don't Overthink It

Make Easier Decisions, Stop Second-Guessing, and Bring More Joy to Your Life

Paperback

by ( Mar, 2020 )

We've all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn't feel like something we can choose to stop doing. It feels like something we're wired to do, something we just can't escape. But is it?

Anne Bogel's answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life. In Don't Overthink It, you'll find actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how you deal with questions both small--Should I buy these flowers?--and large--What am I doing with my life? More than a book about making good decisions, Don't Overthink It offers you a framework for making choices you'll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy, freeing you to focus on all the other stuff that matters in life.

House of Earth and Blood by Sarah J. Maas, ISBN: 9781635574043

Sarah J. Maas's brand-new CRESCENT CITY series begins with House of Earth and Blood: the story of half-Fae and half-human Bryce Quinlan as she seeks revenge in a contemporary fantasy world of magic, danger, and searing romance.

Bryce Quinlan had the perfect life--working hard all day and partying all night--until a demon murdered her closest friends, leaving her bereft, wounded, and alone. When the accused is behind bars but the crimes start up again, Bryce finds herself at the heart of the investigation. She'll do whatever it takes to avenge their deaths.

Hunt Athalar is a notorious Fallen angel, now enslaved to the Archangels he once attempted to overthrow. His brutal skills and incredible strength have been set to one purpose--to assassinate his boss's enemies, no questions asked. But with a demon wreaking havoc in the city, he's offered an irresistible deal: help Bryce find the murderer, and his freedom will be within reach.

As Bryce and Hunt dig deep into Crescent City's underbelly, they discover a dark power that threatens everything and everyone they hold dear, and they find, in each other, a blazing passion--one that could set them both free, if they'd only let it.

With unforgettable characters, sizzling romance, and page-turning suspense, this richly inventive new fantasy series by #1 New York Times bestselling author Sarah J. Maas delves into the heartache of loss, the price of freedom--and the power of love.

The Last Human

Paperback

by ( Mar, 2020 )

Sarya Vald is the galaxy's worst nightmare: a Human. Fortunately, she's the last one. Adopted and raised by the alien Senya, a terrifying sentient spider-like species known as a Widow, Sarya has lived on a space station her entire life, keeping her identity as a human secret even as she puzzles over the impossible questions behind her own existence. 1) How it is that she, and she alone, is the sole survivor of a race that was supposedly wiped out centuries ago? 2)What mysterious force could wipe out four trillion people in a single Galactic year, while making each death look like an accident? 3) What made the Humans so special - or so frightening - that they warranted such treatment? When the station's central intelligence, a grumpy AI named ELLIE, discovers the truth about Sarya's origins, she's forced to flee, a step ahead of rioting inhabitants and vicious enforcers. Together with a band of misfits and cutthroats, Sarya makes for the depths of space aboard a stolen ship, in desperate search of the truth behind her existence. What she discovers is that humanity's death was but one chess move in a war played out across light-years and centuries, by beings with minds so vast and alien that they might as well be gods. If Sarya is going to be more than just a pawn in their game and have a chance at saving humanity's future, she herself will have to become something greater, and more alien, than she ever imagined.

Afterlife by Julia Alvarez, ISBN: 9781643750255

Afterlife

Hardcover

by ( Apr, 2020 )

Antonia Vega, the immigrant writer at the center of Afterlife, has had the rug pulled out from under her. She has just retired from the college where she taught English when her beloved husband, Sam, suddenly dies. And then more jolts: her bighearted but unstable sister disappears, and Antonia returns home one evening to find a pregnant, undocumented teenager on her doorstep. Antonia has always sought direction in the literature she loves--lines from her favorite authors play in her head like a soundtrack--but now she finds that the world demands more of her than words. Afterlife is a compact, nimble, and sharply droll novel. Set in this political moment of tribalism and distrust, it asks: What do we owe those in crisis in our families, including--maybe especially--members of our human family? How do we live in a broken world without losing faith in one another or ourselves? And how do we stay true to those glorious souls we have lost?
