A fast-paced debut urban fantasy novel that you can't put down once you've started reading it.
The thing about TJ Klune is that you can always tell that you’re reading one of his books. It’s the thing I love most about this author. He has a way of writing that is both enticing and magical. Every sentence is a statement and a mystery. It’s also very emotional, and it’s especially true for this book because of the beginning and the main character. Because the main character is someone I found myself deeply in love with from the very start, I was emotionally invested from the first page and crying by the fifth.

A magical, emotional journey for the open-minded.
It Ends With Us will steal your heart and return it to you richer and with more feeling that you’ve ever experienced, or at least it did that with mine. This will forever be one of my favorite books of any genre. When you reach the ending, you will discover how very profound even the title is. This book deals with a heavy topic, yes, but it deals with it perfectly.

A contemporary romance novel that will steal your heart!
Juliet Gilkes Romero’s Day of the Living is one of two plays in the book Making Mischief, which explores the global issues of truth, corruption and freedom. Day of the Living is the true story of forty-three teacher training students who were violently abducted from Ayotzinapa Mexico in 2014. They were never seen again and no one was brought to justice. The play is an anarchic, musical tribute to life and the Mexican spirit with urgent global issues at its heart. Day of the Living was inspired by the fight for justice for the missing students and the thousands of murdered and disappeared in Mexico. We Are Arrested, an adaptation of the magnificent novel by Can Dundar, is the second play in the book. The plays were part of the RSC's (Royal Shakespeare Company) 2018 Mischief Festival.
