Every year for the past fifty-four years, the residents of Pinsbury Port receive a mysterious letter inviting all eligible-aged boys to compete for an esteemed scholarship to the all-male Stemwick University. Every year, the poorer residents look to see that their names are on the list. The wealthier look to see how likely their sons are to survive. And Rhen Tellur opens it to see if she can derive which substances the ink and parchment are created from, using her father’s microscope.
In the province of Caldon, where women are trained in wifely duties and men are encouraged into collegiate education, sixteen-year-old Rhen Tellur wants nothing more than to become a scientist. As the poor of her seaside town fall prey to a deadly disease, she and her father work desperately to find a cure. But when her Mum succumbs to it as well? Rhen decides to take the future into her own hands—through the annual all-male scholarship competition.
With her cousin, Seleni, by her side, the girls don disguises and enter Mr. Holm’s labyrinth, to best the boys and claim the scholarship prize. Except not everyone’s ready for a girl who doesn’t know her place. And not everyone survives the maze.
Rebellions are built on hope.
Set in a horrifying near-future-United States, seventeen-year-old Layla Amin is forced into an internment camp for Muslim-American citizens with her parents.
With the help of newly-made friends also trapped within the internment camp, her boyfriend on the outside, and an unexpected alliance, Layla begins a journey to fight for freedom, leading a revolution against the internment camp's Director and his guards.

For thousands of years, the three Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx have asked more questions than they have answered.
A vast amount of books have been written which have revealed incredible facts concerning their construction and their incredible astronomical qualities. The Pyramids of Giza are aligned with certain star constellations in the Biblical Mazzaroth (Constellation)
Who built these three Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx? How did these pyramids acquire such mathematical and astronomical accuracy no man can equal today?
Scholars have one thing in common; they have failed to inform us as to who these people were and from where they derived their knowledge and skills
It is the author’s contention that SOUND SCRIPTURAL EVIDENCE BE USED as the basis to reason from, and then USE SCIENTIFIC FACTS to prove the INFALLIBLE TRUTH of the Bible. Yes, the mind-bending timeline is indeed laid out in Giza’s Great Pyramid, the crucifixion and a vast amount of information revealing the tremendous glory of the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob! This book is a Biblical exposition when considering the construction of the pyramids, proving that the Bible undoubtedly gives the information with pin-point accuracy as to who build it and why!
Buried deep in ancient Prophetic Hebrew texts, undiscovered and largely ignored by scholars, lie secrets of information about the mysterious Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx so profound that it boggles the mind
You are invited on an excursion through time and space that will unquestionably change your perceptions on the Pyramids of Giza and the Sphinx forever…

The Deepest Blue by Sarah Beth Durst (Tales of Renthia #1 ). The natural magic of the classic The Island of the Blue Dolphins meets the danger and courage of The Hunger Games in this dazzling, intricate stand-alone fantasy novel set in award-winning author Sarah Beth Durst's beloved world of Renthia.
Life is precious and precarious on the islands of Belene. Besieged by a capricious ocean full of malicious spirits, the people of the islands seek joy where they can. Mayara, one of the island's fearless oyster divers, has found happiness in love. But on the day of her wedding to the artist Kelo, a spirit-driven storm hits the island with deadly force.
To save her loved ones, Mayara reveals a dangerous secret: she has the power to control the spirits. When the storm ends, she is taken into custody by the queen's soldiers and imprisoned with other women like her.
They vary in age and social status, but to many they are heroes who will aide the country or witches that will sacrifice themselves trying. No matter who they are, the women are sent to a terrifying place—an island filled with bloodthirsty nature spirits, and left without food, water, shelter, or any tools except their own instincts and magic. Whoever survives the Island of Testing will be declared heirs to the queen. But no matter if she wins or loses, Mayara knows that the life she dreamed of is gone.
“I no longer believed in the idea of soul mates, or love at first sight. But I was beginning to believe that a very few times in your life, if you were lucky, you might meet someone who was exactly right for you. Not because he was perfect, or because you were, but because your combined flaws were arranged in a way that allowed two separate beings to hinge together.”
It’s spring break. I’ve been reading. This might be the best YA novel I’ve read for awhile. ✏️✏️✏️✏️ It’s a bit reminiscent of Hunger Games - it takes place in an America that has been greatly damaged by wars with enemies from without and rebellion from within. The society has reverted to a monarchy and developed a rigid caste system which leaves great gaps between the “haves” and “have-nots.” Instead of battles, 35 girls are in a competition very much like “The Bachelor” to win Prince Maxon as husband. 📚it’s free on Amazon’s Prime Reading. Unfortunately, the next one is $8.99. I almost never spend that much for a book, so when I say I might actually spend that much, you know I want to finish the series. 📚 There are 4 more books, so it’s an expensive prospect. That’s really the downside to these modern books - a single story in 5 volumes. (Can you imagine if Gone With The Wind was written like that?) Anyway, I really like the protagonist. 📚 I’ve left my challenge lists at home, so for now, I’ll just say this is number 12 for the year. #2019reads#2019reads 📚 #kindlebooks#2019readingchallenge

Это последнее про Венецию, честно 😂
В #субботнеечтиво (мой оригинальный и не такой звучный тег с книгами #goldina_books ) книга Аркадия Ипполитова «Только Венеция», которую мне посоветовала дорогая Елена @gypsearoads, за что ей огромное спасибо!
Это не путеводитель, это история любви человека и города со множеством описаний, отсылок к истории, литературным произведениям, героям, фольклору. Читать безумно интересно, точно интереснее стандартного путеводителя!
Но, вот тут я не шучу, я почувствовала себя таким необразованным мужичьем, что просто крах, ужас и тлен! Я не знаю добрую половину героев, я не смотрела и не читала пьесы Гоцци, я не помню даже картин Тинторетто. А вот это мне помнить положено после пяти лет изучения истории искусств!
Я вдруг осознала, что после пары лет нечтения художественной литературы совсем отвыкла от сложных оборота, эпитетов-метафор-аллегорий. Я не могу читать сложноподчиненные предложения, я просто теряю мысль к концу.
Это ужасно, друзья, посыпаю голову пеплом и обещаю исправиться, а то стыдно за себя 😔
Про книгу Ипполитова - однозначно рекомендую! Очень красиво написано про этот красивый город, про эмоции и чувства.
А ещё я хочу какой-то список «минимальная библиотека элегантного человека». То есть те книги, которые обязательно надо прочесть, чтобы не быть необразованным мужичьем 🤡 есть такое? Может, ваше личное. Мне сильно надо!
Nota: 5/5 ⭐
Nesse livro, conhecemos Lavínia, uma jovem bailarina que sonha em conseguir um importante papel em alguma grande companhia. Ela passou por enormes dificuldades anteriormente, principalmente em seu último relacionamento, mas nunca deixou de ser uma moça doce, gentil e sonhadora. .
Caio é um playboy rico, lindo, piloto de Stock Car e cheio de charme. Ele não se importa muito com a própria vida e vive no limite dos perigos, desafiando a morte. Por seu passado perturbador, Caio não quer se envolver emocionalmente com ninguém, por isso toda semana ele tem uma garota diferente ao seu lado. Mas quando Caio conhece Lavínia, as coisas começam a sair do seu controle e é impossível resistir esse sentimento. .
Que livro muito maravilho. Já me apaixonei logo nas primeiras páginas pelo casal e todos os outros personagens. Eu amei muito a construção narrativa da história, foi encantador ver todo desenvolvimento do enredo e o desfecho dele.
Caio e Lavínia tinham seus próprios fantasma para enfrentar. E coisa mais linda foi à maneira como eles se apoiaram, transpareceu um sentimento bastante verdadeiro entre os dois para o leitor. A personagem de Lavínia era um amor, sempre tão gentil e doce e muito determinada também. Caio foi excepcional! Achei que autora permitiu o personagem de Caio mostrar suas emoções, no qual me conquistou mais ainda. .
Amei muito todo enredo do livro! Ele é narrado na primeira pessoa pelo ponto de vista de ambos personagens. Mal posso esperar pela continuação do livro, já que é uma duologia.
O e-book já está disponível na Amazon!
Estação de NOVIDADES! (A menos que você veja os stories que compartilho aqui haha)
Bom dia passageiros tudo bem com vocês?
Quem me acompanha no story soube que o Livre Station foi selecionado para parceria de ebooks com a editora Ler Editorial (@lereditorial ), estou muito feliz, pois foi a primeira parceria com uma editora! ❤️
Já recebi dois ebooks e estou ansiosa demais para iniciar a leitura! Vou deixar a Sinopse para vocês darem uma olhada!
Love is in the Air (Londres #1 ):
"Ah, o Amor! As dificuldades, os calafrios, os encontros inesperados, os pensamentos loucos...
Nos quatro contos de Love is in the air você vai conhecer lindas histórias, românticas e quentes, sobre esse sentimento cheio de altos e baixos.
Eva Zooks, Tamires Barcellos, Catarina Muniz e Paola Scott apresentam contos ambientados em Londres — a terra da Rainha, do chá e de cenários incríveis — para você se apaixonar como nunca antes."
Guard me forever:
"Joanne Reeves never considered herself extraordinary. She was a decorator by choice, trained in architecture. She worked full time in her ex-husband's office even though their relationship was troubled. She had a single friend, the best. With her she ran in the park, went to the nightclubs, risked finding a new love ... But it didn't happen.
She was beautiful, but she never inspired a second look; not by attraction. Being an ordinary person, it was difficult for Joanne to believe that a stranger, who she met in the hospital cafeteria, was interested. He knew her name, knew where to find her, had the hotter hands someone could have and disappeared in the blink of an eye. And yes, he was beautiful in the true meaning of the word.
For someone ordinary and alone, how not to fall in love?
All Joanne wanted was to believe, to give herself completely and to be guarded forever."
