One second I was standing on the shore, wondering if I'll ever learn the truth about my parents, and the next I'm caught in a whirlpool, drowning. Someone - or something - is out to get me. But who? And why? An elite sailing team saved my life, but these irresistible men seem to think I called them here. They say I'm a Siren. Their Siren. Turns out there's a whole lot about me I never knew, and these men are here to help me figure it out. I wanted to become more badass this year.... I'd say growing a tail qualifies.

Although the English king tried to wrest it away, the Highland Targe - ancient relic and protector of Scottish lands - still lies safely in the hands of clan MacAlpin. But for how long? Jeanette MacAlpin trained her entire life to become the next Guardian of the Targe, but that duty has now fallen to her cousin Rowan - a duty Rowan can't seem to master. Fearful for her clan's future, Jeanette seeks the solace of a sacred wellspring, and there encounters tawny-skinned Highland warrior Malcolm MacKenzie.

Ursula can't remember a single thing from before three years ago, so she has to keep her life simple. All she wants is to earn enough money for rent - and maybe a bit left over for a new pair of boots. But on her 18th birthday, all hell breaks loose, quite literally, when a hellhound shifter shows up in her kitchen. Kester's lethally gorgeous, and he's come with a terrifying message: Ursula owes her soul to a demon. No one seems to care that she doesn't remember striking that deal.

> Intuitive Eating is the go-to book on rebuilding a healthy body image and making peace with food. We’ve all been there - angry with ourselves for overeating, for our lack of willpower, for failing at yet another diet. But the problem isn’t us; it’s that dieting, with its strict rules, keeps us from listening to our bodies. Written by two prominent nutritionists, Intuitive Eating will teach you how to reject diet mentality forever; how our three eating "personalities" define our eating difficulties; how to find satisfaction in your eating; and much, much more.

Best-selling author Jerry Brides ( The Pursuit of Holiness, The Discipline of Grace, The Bookends of the Christian Life, and many other books) asks perhaps the most fundamental question of existence: "Who am I?" He then turns to scripture to unpack for the Christian eight clear, interlocking, illuminating answers.

I sped it to 1.5/2x otherwise it’s too slow.

Jerry Bridges has a skill for explaining stuff in ways they make living it out far easier.

I’ll revisit this one.
