The Mister is a roller-coaster ride of danger and desire that leaves the reader breathless to the very last page. It is the passionate new romance from E L James, author of the phenomenal #1 bestselling Fifty Shades Trilogy London, 2019. Maxim Trevelyan, aside from being blessed with good looks and wealth, he came from an aristocratic family with a noble title. All of that changes when tragedy strikes and he is magnetized to a young woman who’s recently arrived in England, possessing little more than a dangerous and troublesome past. Reticent, beautiful, and musically gifted, she’s an alluring mystery, and Maxim’s longing for her deepens into a passion that he’s never experienced and dares not name. Just who is Alessia Demachi? Find out more from The Mister.
Everything is F*cked – A book about Hope
From the success of his unconventional book: The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck, Mark Manson enlightens us once again with a new read: Everything Is F*cked. In this book, he turns his gaze from the inevitable flaws within each individual self to the endless calamities taking place in the world around us. Drawing on mountains of psychological research, as well as the timeless wisdom of philosophers such as Plato and Nietzsche, he dissects religion and politics and the uncomfortable ways they have come to resemble one another. He looks at our relationships with money, entertainment and the internet, and how too much of a good thing can psychologically eat us alive. He openly defies our definitions of faith, happiness, freedom, and even of hope itself.
