Paul Bloom - Descartes' ​Baby
All ​humans see the world in two fundamentally different ways: even babies have a rich understanding of both the physical and social worlds. They expect objects to obey principles of physics, and they’re startled when things disappear or defy gravity. Yet they can also read emotions and respond with anger, sympathy, and joy.In Descartes’ Baby, Bloom draws on a wealth of scientific discoveries to show how these two ways of knowing give rise to such uniquely human traits as humor, disgust, religion, art, and morality. How our dualist perspective, developed throughout our lives, profoundly influences our thoughts, feelings, and actions is the subject of this richly rewarding book.

Dick Francis - The ​Edge
It ​promises to be the most spectacular racing event of all time: a ten-day train journey across Canada, taking owners and their horses to a series of prestigious race meetings. But for Tor Kelsey, undercover investigator for the Jockey Club, the trip will be no joy ride. Among the names on the distinguished passenger list is that of Julius Apollo Filmer, a rich owner suspected of blackmail and conspiracy to murder. Tor must watch Filmer like a hawk, for at last there's a chance to catch racing's most elusive and most dangerous villain - red-handed. Dick Francis's latest mystery is packed with all the colourful drama and intrigue that his many fans have come to love and expect.

Mariana Enriquez - Things ​We Lost in the Fire
A ​woman returns to the rundown suburb of Buenos Aires her family once called home. From the safety of her window, she watches as a teenage prostitute raises her five-year-old son on the street. They sleep outside, surrounded by pimps and addicts, psychopaths and dealers, worshippers of the occult and corrupt police. One day, the mother and the dirty kid are gone, and the dismembered body of a child is found in the neighbourhood. Is the murder part of a satanic ritual, or a gangland killing? Could it be the dirty kid, and if so, is his mother a victim too; or an accomplice; or his killer? Thrilling and terrifying, The Things We Lost in the Fire takes the reader into a world of Argentine Gothic: of sharp-toothed children; of women racked by desire; of demons who lurk beneath the river; of stolen skulls and secrets half-buried under Argentina's terrible dictatorship; of men imprisoned in their marriages, whose only path out lies in the flames.

Roque Larraquy - Comemadre
In ​the outskirts of Buenos Aires in 1907, a doctor becomes involved in a misguided experiment that investigates the threshold between life and death. One hundred years later, a celebrated artist goes to extremes in search of aesthetic transformation, turning himself into an art object. How far are we willing to go, Larraquy asks, in pursuit of transcendence? The world of Comemadre is full of vulgarity, excess, and discomfort: strange ants that form almost perfect circles, missing body parts, obsessive love affairs, and man-eating plants. Darkly funny, smart, and engrossing, here the monstrous is not alien, but the consquence of our relentless pursuit of collective and personal progress.

Chastity Bono - Family ​Outing
Amazon.com ​Review Family Outing is two books in one: a memoir of Chastity Bono's experience coming out as a lesbian to her famous parents and a look at the difficulties and triumphs that are part of every uncloseted homosexual's family life, with narratives drawn from interviews with members of Parents and Friends of Lesbians and Gays (PFLAG). Sometimes the two projects work against each other, but for the most part, Bono is right in assuming that her story reflects something larger in the culture and that others' stories, in turn, bear on her own experience. Readers skimming for intimate details about the mother-daughter conflict between Cher and Chastity won't be disappointed by Bono's sensitively written account. For a long time, Cher overlooked the troubling evidence of her daughter's emerging sexual identity: "Instead, she focused on superficial issues that bothered her: my short hair, my mannish clothes, my weight." Their relationship deteriorated, and it was Sonny to whom Chastity eventually confided; ironically, the father who offered immediate, warm acceptance of his daughter's lesbianism would later sponsor the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act in the House of Representatives. --Regina Marler

Pola Oloixarac - Dark ​Constellations
Argentinian ​literary star Pola Oloixarac’s wildly ambitious second novel investigates humanity’s quest for knowledge and control, hurtling from the 19th century mania for scientific classification to present-day mass surveillance and the next steps in human evolution. Canary Islands, 1882: Caught in the 19th-century wave of scientific classification, explorer and plant biologist Niklas Bruunis researches Crissia pallida, a species alleged to have hallucinogenic qualities capable of eliminating the psychic limits between one human mind and another. Buenos Aires, 1983: Born to a white Argentinian anthropologist and a black Brazilian engineer, Cassio comes of age with the Internet, and demonstrates the skills and personality that will make him one of the first great Argentine hackers. The southern Argentinian techno-hub of Bariloche, 2024: Piera, on the same research group as Cassio, studies human DNA. When the Estromatoliton project comes to fruition, the Argentine government will be able to track every movement of its citizens without their knowledge or consent, using censors that identify DNA at a distance. In a dazzling novel of towering ambition, Oloixarac proves that true power resides in the world’s most deeply shadowed interstices, as beautiful and horrifying as dark constellations themselves.

Pola Oloixarac - Savage ​Theories
A ​debut novel of seduction and madness, hate and love, set in the world of Argentine academia and animated by the spirits of Wittgenstein, Rousseau, Nabokov and Bolaño Rosa Ostreech, a pseudonym for the novel’s beautiful but self-conscious narrator, carries around a trilingual edition of Aristotle’s Metaphysics, struggles with her thesis on violence and culture, sleeps with a bourgeois former guerrilla, and pursues her elderly professor with a highly charged blend of eroticism and desperation. Elsewhere on campus, Pabst and Kamtchowsky tour the underground scene of Buenos Aires, dabbling in ketamine, group sex, video games, and hacking. And in Africa in 1917, a Dutch anthropologist named Johan van Vliet begins work on a theory that explains human consciousness and civilization by reference to our early primate ancestors—animals, who, in the process of becoming human, spent thousands of years as prey. Savage Theories wryly explores fear and violence, war and sex, eroticism and philosophy. Its complex and flawed characters grapple with a mess of impossible, visionary theories, searching for their place in our fragmented digital world.

Tara Sim - Scavenge ​the Stars

Amaya wants one thing: revenge against the man who ruined her family and stole the life she once had.

Gyökér István - Kubinszky Mihály - Képek ​a régi magyar vasutakról és vonatokról
A ​vasutak Európában több mint másfél évszázados múltra tekintenek vissza. Ennek java részét a gőzmozdonyos vontatás jellemezte, ami a vasút fejlődését még nemzedékünkig kísérte. Ezért a gőzmozdony áll ennek a kötetnek a középpontjában még akkor is, ha nem a mozdonytörténet a képes összeállítás témája. Még csak a magyar vasúttörténet egészét sem ölelheti fel munkánk, képei inkább a kört kívánják jellemezni. Vasútvonalak, hidak, építmények kevesebbet változtak, mint a mozdonyok és a kocsik, s ezzel erőteljesebben kötik a jelent a múlthoz. Bizonyítják, hogy az új vasút a régin épül fel. Az, hogy a mozdonyok és a vonatok állnak a képsorozat középpontjában, bizonyára megfelel a legtöbb olvasó érdeklődésének. Ezért is igyekszik a kísérőszöveg a lehető legtöbb adattal és információval szolgálni. Nosztalgia nélkül, dokumentumként. Elsősorban régi képes levelezőlapokat és régi fényképeket láthat az olvasó. Ezek legtöbbje régiség értékű s a szerzők gyűjteményeiből származik. A vasút fénykorában a képeslap nemcsak üdvözleteket továbbított, de az amatőr fényképezés és a képes folyóiratok hiányában hírszolgálatot is teljesített. Városokról, tájakról, épületekről, eseményekről, népszokásokról és a technika fejlődéséről tudósított. A régi képeslapnak ezt a sajátosságát itt a vasúttörténet céljára vesszük igénybe.

Joanne Avison - Yoga
YOGA: ​Fascia, Anatomy and Movement seeks to bridge the divide between the application of classical anatomy and real-life experiences of practicing and teaching yoga. This book presents fascia as the tensional network of connective tissues; the fabric of the human form. Research into fascia is revealing a whole new context for understanding the human body both at rest and in motion. Whatever your style of yoga, YOGA: Fascia, Anatomy and Movement makes sense of the experience of the moving body in and beyond the yoga classroom. It is a groundbreaking and invaluable resource in the contemporary art and science of yoga. The book is written in straightforward and accessible language, and is divided into three parts: Part 1 examines recent research and the paradigm shift from the classical anatomy of the musculoskeletal system to the new perspective the fascia provides. Part 2 applies this perspective to the practice of yoga with clear descriptions of techniques, exercises and plenty of illustrations. Part 3 considers the metaphysical aspect of yoga and the hidden geometry of our biotensegrity architecture as a metaphor for consciousness. YOGA: Fascia, Anatomy and Movement is intended primarily for Yoga Teachers, but can be adapted for use with Pilates or other movement training programs. Therapists working in the fields of sport, dance, and movement therapy as well as manual practitioners will all find the book enhances their approach to practice.

And then further more guarded when I found out the president of The Devil’s Own MC was my long lost half-brother. Being tossed around from one extreme protection to another has left a part of me yearning to break out of it's cage. The part that I've tried to sugar coat and hide, because if she's unleashed, everyone would see just how much like my brothers I am. Panting, wanting, needing to unleash the side of me I’ve always known was there. My secret is mine and my brothers. Only they know what I hide and why I hide it. How I fight for love because if I don't, my rage would win and I’d be a mere shadow of the girl people have grown to know. But I broke. And the man who held the hammer that shattered the walls I spent years building to cage in my rage—was a psychopath.

Amo Jones - Crowned ​by Hate
Some ​would say I have a privileged life. Daughter of the current President of the United States, wealthy, famous, and all things that some girls wish they had. Only I'd dream of having a simple life. A life where I wasn't marrying the scariest man I have ever met. Well, I thought I had just met him, but it turns out, there's so much I don't know about myself. That's all thanks to a past so twisted, so warped, that no amount of money, or presidential status could wipe it clean. I'm the rebel child. Or as some may see it, the disappointment. I’ve never cared about expensive wedding gowns, or how much someone paid for a tailored suit. I don’t care if your wedding dress is from Walmart, or if it’s from some fancy, upscale designer line. So why am I marrying the devil dressed in a thousand-dollar suit? I'm about to find out how I got here. To marrying one of the most powerful men in the country. The road to finding out, though, is paved with darkness, painted with the blood of innocents, and it leads my ass straight to hell. Only this hell is a multi-million-dollar penthouse suite in New York City where Bryant Saint Royal, sits on his throne. Little bit more about this book... I've had this plot turning inside my brain for a while now. I've tossed and turned with it, fought with it, tried to modify it to be more acceptable, and in short, I've tried to p*ssy foot around my brutal little demons who have been whispering this story for over a year. Truth is, I couldn't tame it. I couldn't tame them, and I had to write it exactly as I saw it. Exactly as I have lived it, breathed it, relished in it inside of my head. See, my stories aren't voices, they're real, and they own every single inch of my being as I write them. Back to this book, yes, it was originally supposed to be a standalone, but I sent it to TWO betas who BOTH kicked up a sh*t at me about how the story was just...untold. So, I went back in, dove head first back into the murky depths of hell to revise, re-edit and twist the plot even further so this could be told in THREE parts. Book 1 is a full length standalone, but books 2 & 3 will be A LOT longer. You won't be able to figure out this plot. Calling it twisted is an understatement, and It will f you in more ways than you've ever been f-ed before. Anyway, I would say goodluck, but luck ain't got shit, and god ain't gon' save you.

I come for everything and get everything I come for—and I want all of her. But she’s changed, and so have I. I’m much, much worse now…
