“Fourth Wing will keep you on the edge of your seat the entire time… a fantasy unlike anything you’ve ever read. Jennifer L. Armentrout, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller

Novelist Rebecca Yarros, a New York Times bestselling novelist, invites you to explore the cruel and exclusive world of a combat college for dragon riders.

Having lived a tranquil life surrounded by literature and history for the past twenty years, Violet Sorrengail was expected to move into the Scribe Quadrant. Violet has been commanded by the commanding general, commonly known as her fierce mother, to join the thousands of applicants vying to join the elite of Navarre: the dragon riders.

Death, however, is only a heartbeat away when you’re smaller than everyone else and your body is brittle, as dragons do not bond to “fragile” humans. They burn them in fire.

Fewer dragons than cadets were willing to form bonds, therefore most would choose to succeed by killing Violet. The others, including Xaden Riorson, the most formidable and merciless wingleader in the Riders Quadrant, would kill her simply for being her mother’s kid.

To witness the next daybreak, she will need all the advantage her wits can provide.

However, as time goes on, the fight outside becomes more dangerous, the kingdom’s defenses are breaking down, and the death toll keeps rising. Even worse, Violet starts to worry that the upper class is keeping a dreadful secret.

friends, rivals, and lovers. There are only two ways out of Basgiath War College: graduate or perish, thus everyone there has a plan.

Small Changes, Amazing Results

Atomic Habits provides a tried-and-true framework for daily improvement, regardless of your ambitions. One of the foremost authorities on habit formation, James Clear, shares actionable techniques that will show you exactly how to develop positive habits, break bad ones, and master the minute actions that produce amazing outcomes.

It’s not you who needs to change your habits if you’re having problems doing so. Your system is the issue.

Your systems determine how high you can fall. Here, you’ll find a tried-and-true system that can help you succeed.

Clear is renowned for his ability to reduce difficult subjects to straightforward actions that can be used in both daily life and the workplace. Here, he applies the most scientifically supported theories from biology, psychology, and neuroscience to produce a simple manual for making good habits inescapable and bad habits unavoidable. Along the way, genuine anecdotes from Olympic gold medalists, award-winning artists, corporate leaders, life-saving doctors, and celebrity comedians who used the science of little habits to master their trade and rise to the top of their area will inspire and amuse listeners.

Discover how to:

  • Make time to develop new habits, even when life is hectic.
    Overcome a lack of drive and determination
  • Create a successful setting for yourself.
  • When you go off course, get back on course.
  • And a lot more
    If you want to change your habits, whether you’re a team trying to win a championship, an organization trying to change an industry, or just a person trying to stop smoking, get in shape, de-stress, or accomplish any other goal, Atomic Habits will change the way you think about progress and success.

GMA Book Club pick for the year’s top New York Times bestseller Meet Elizabeth Zott, “a gifted research chemist, absurdly self-assured, and immune to social convention” (The Washington Post) in 1960s California, whose career takes a detour when she becomes the unusual star of a popular TV cookery show.


This book is “irresistible, satisfying, and full of fuel” (The New York Times Book Review) and “witty, sometimes hilarious…the Catch-22 of early feminism.” Tweeted by Stephen King

The New York Times, Washington Post, NPR, Oprah Daily, Entertainment Weekly, and Newsweek all named it a Best Book of the Year.

Elizabeth Zott, a chemist, is not your typical woman. In actuality, Elizabeth Zott would be the first to acknowledge the lack of a typical woman. However, her all-male Hastings Research Institute staff has a very unscientific perspective on equality because it is the early 1960s. Except for Calvin Evans, the misanthropic, bright, and Nobel Prize nominee who falls in love with her mind of all things. Results of true chemistry.

But life is unpredictable, just like science. Because of this, Elizabeth Zott discovers herself to be a single mother and the unwilling star of Supper at Six, one of America’s most popular cookery programs, a few years later. Elizabeth’s novel method of cooking—combining a tablespoon of acetic acid with a dash of sodium chloride—proves to be ground-breaking. But not everyone is pleased as her fan base expands. Elizabeth Zott isn’t simply teaching women how to cook, it turns out. She is daring them to alter the current situation.

Lessons in Chemistry is as unique and lively as its main character and is laugh-out-loud humorous, astutely observant, and filled with a sparkling ensemble of supporting characters.
