Things that happen sometimes when your boyfriend is a magical fairy prince: he gets kidnapped by his older brother and whisked away to fulfil his destiny in their magical fairy kingdom. But Pearl Linford is not having that. It's time for a rescue mission. Pearl told Finn she was coming to get him and she's not going to let anyone in her way. But will Finn want to be saved? And should she have listened to all those people who told her he wasn't worth saving?

Full Description : "Sarah J. Maas meets Holly Black with an OzYA twist. Ironheart is the second page-turning book in Jodi McAlister's thrilling Valentine series. Pearl Linford is stuck. Her best friend won't talk to her. The internet thinks she is a murderer. And she's waiting for the right moment to forgive Finn Blacklin, the boy she's known forever, who turned out to be an actual fairytale Prince Charming, but it never seems to come. On top of this, Pearl has another threat to face. Unseelie fairies have infiltrated her town, and they've unleashed a new horror - a bunch of wild, uncontrollable, angry supernatural hunters, who have Finn on the top of their hit list. And you know what? That is a lot for one seventeen-year-old girl to handle. No wonder Pearl is so full of rage all the time . . . and that rage might be drawing the attention of some very dangerous people.
Ironheart, good words and speeches are a great help in any profession, and knowing that you can talk to a higher group with confidence can be a great affirmation of your self-esteem. It might even help your career, because those who are good at reading, both oral and knowledgeable on various topics, can quickly be advertised (and more generally) than those who have less vocabulary, as well as literature, scientific discoveries and global events lack understanding.

Full Description : "What is behind Outlander fever—the hit television drama’s popularity? Is it author Diana Gabaldon’s teasing posts on social media? Is it the real history reimagined? The highly emotional melodrama? Or is it the take-charge heroine and the sweet hero in a kilt? One of the show’s biggest draws is its multigenre appeal. Gabaldon—whose Outlander novels form the basis of the series—has called it science fiction, fantasy, romance, historical fiction and military fiction, depending on her audience. This collection of new essays explores the series as a romance, a ghost story, an epic journey, a cozy mystery, a comedy of manners, a gothic thriller and a feminist answer to Game of Thrones, and considers the source of its broad appeal.
Adoring Outlander makes the reader have stronger analytical thinking skills. Have you ever read an amazing book and did not solve the mystery itself? If so, then you can work on critical and analytical thinking, observe all the data provided and sort it out to determine anything. McFarland"
Full Description : "There has been a lot happening on Australia's small screens. Neighbours turned 30. Struggle Street was accused of poverty porn. Pete evangelised Paleo. Gina got litigious. Netflix muscled in. The Bachelor spawned The Bachelorette. Peter Allen's maraccas were exhumed. The Labor Party ate itself. Anzac was an anti-climax. And so much more ... Join us as we survey the Australian televisual landscape, and try to make sense of the myriad changes transforming what and how we watch. We've come a long way since Bruce Gyngell welcomed us to television in 1956. We now watch on demand and wherever we want, in our lounge rooms and on our devices. But some things stay the same. The small screen is still a place for imagining Australia, for better or for worse. Small Screens challenges and celebrates our contemporary TV worlds.

Full Description : "This book offers to delineate a key phenomenon in contemporary Anglophone fiction: novel expansion, when the plot and characters from a finished novel are retrieved to be developed in new adventures set before, after or during the narrative time of the source-text. If autographic and allographic sequels are almost as old as literature, prequels - that imagine the anteriority of a narrative - and coquels - that develop secondary characters in the same story time as the source-text - are more recent. The overall trend for novel expansion spread in the mid-1980s and 1990s and has since shown no sign of abating. This volume is organised following three types of relationships to the source-texts even if these occasionally combine to produce a more complex structure. This book comprises 11 essays, preceded by an introduction, that examine narrative strategies, aesthetic, ethical and political tendencies underlying these novel expansions. Following the overview provided in the introduction, the reader will find case studies of prequels, coquels and sequels before a final chapter that encompasses them all and more.
Increased concentration after reading the book Prequels, Coquels and Sequels in Contemporary Anglophone Fiction. In our crazy Internet world, attention is focused on millions of people in different directions at the same time, because we perform a number of tasks every day. One 5 minutes on average people will split their time between tasks, e-mail, watching, chatting with multiple people (using Gchat, skype etc.) Follow on Twitter, monitor your smartphone, and interact with colleagues. This type of behavior leads to increased stress and reduced productivity. Routledge Studies in Contemporary Literature"

In this book she shows how children understand, respond to, and are affected by violence, especially domestic violence. Groves makes the powerful case that traumatic events carried out by family members carry the most severe psychological risks for very young children. She uses clinical case studies to show that being young does not protect against the lasting effects of witnessing violence, and she offers ways adults can help.
