Want to feel terrifyingly beautiful? Wear the right color of eye shadow to project otherworldly glamour. Need to exorcise a toxic friendship? Repeat the proper incantation and make it disappear. DIY projects, rituals, and spells summon the best trends of the modern witchy lifestyle and the time-trusted traditions of the hell-raising women of the past. With humor, heart, and a hip sensibility, Jaya Saxena and Jess Zimmerman dispense witchy wisdom for the curious, the cynical, and anyone who could use a magical boost.

At once wildly original and stuffed with irresistible nostalgia, Ready Player One is a spectacularly genre-busting, ambitious, and charming debut—part quest novel, part love story, and part virtual space opera set in a universe where spell-slinging mages battle giant Japanese robots, entire planets are inspired by Blade Runner, and flying DeLoreans achieve light speed.

In 2009, Susannah Cahalan woke up in a strange hospital room strapped to a bed, under guard, and unable to move or speak. Her medical records - from a month-long hospital stay of which she had no memory - reported psychosis, violence, and dangerous instability. Yet, only weeks earlier she had been a healthy, ambitious twenty-four-year-old, six months into her first serious relationship and a sparkling career as a cub reporter

Go down the rabbit hole with one of the best loved heroines in children's literature. Alice's remarkable adventures begin when she follows the White Rabbit down his hole into a peculiar world populated with strange and absurd creatures. Meet the Mock Turtle, the Mad-Hatter, the March Hare, the hookah-smoking Caterpillar, and the Queen of Hearts. This story was originally read aloud, and Ralph Cosham's engaging narration brings the magic to life. Adults may be surprised at what they find as they rediscover this beloved classic that the whole family can enjoy.

The story is great of course but the narration, or more accurately, the recording wasn't great. Towards the end there is an uneven tapping sound that doesn't seem to be part of the story....at one point it gets louder than the narrator and is rather bothersome.

Have you ever seen a planet invaded by rampaging space mutants from another dimension or Nazi dinosaurs from the future? Don't let this happen to you! Rifts happen, so you should be ready when universes collide. A policy with Stranger & Stranger can cover all of your interdimensional insurance needs. Rated "Number One in Customer Satisfaction" for three years running, no claim is too big or too weird for Tom Stranger to handle.
