     La passion peut-elle résister à la trahison ?

     

    J’ouvre les yeux, Raphaël joue avec une mèche de mes cheveux.

     

    – Hé ! Belle endormie, chuchote-t-il à mon oreille. 

     

    Je suis allongée sur la méridienne, nue. Ses doigts se promènent le long de mon corps, suivent le contour de mes seins, s’attardent sur mes fesses. Les moments magiques que nous venons de vivre me reviennent à l’esprit. 

    Un nouveau bip retentit. Je tourne le poignet de Raphaël vers moi, afin de jeter un œil à sa montre. 14 h 56 ! 

    Je me redresse d’un bond. 

    – J’ai rendez-vous dans quatre minutes, à un quart d’heure d’ici ! 

     

    Je me dépêche de passer mes habits pour me dérober au regard de l’apollon. Je me sens gênée. On dit quoi, dans ce genre de situation ?  Je serais bien en peine de nommer les sentiments si intenses qui m’assaillent à cet instant précis. En revanche, je donnerais cher pour savoir ce qui se passe dans sa tête à lui. Est-ce qu’il a l’habitude de ce genre de matinée améliorée ? 

     

    Comme je le frôle pour ramasser mon jean, il m’attrape par la taille et m’attire à lui. 

     

    – Tu prends la fuite ? 

     

    Raphaël me regarde. Est-ce qu’il attend une réponse ? On dirait, oui. Et je ne sais pas quoi répondre. 

     

    – J’ai rendez-vous pour visiter un appartement avec Emma, une amie. Un ami nous l’a dégoté.

     

    J’attrape mon sac et je disparais, soulagée d’avoir un prétexte pour partir précipitamment, sans avoir à parler de sentiments ni de ce qui se passera - ou ne se passera pas - plus tard. 

     

    Oui, je prends la fuite, pour mon plus grand malheur, je ne sais pas gérer mes émotions, encore moins les formuler, surtout à un homme qui me bouleverse.

     

    ***

     

    Quand June Sachs débarque à New York, où elle décroche le job de ses rêves, la jeune femme ose enfin rêver d’un avenir plus radieux.

    Et le destin semble lui donner raison en plaçant sur sa route Raphaël Warren, un producteur au charme dévastateur. 

    Raphaël est célèbre, milliardaire, beau et surtout sûr de lui ! Et ce qu’il veut, c’est elle : June.

    Mais quand la jeune femme découvre la réelle identité de celui avec qui elle passe des nuits torrides et qu’elle la révèle au monde entier, le rêve se transforme en cauchemar…

    Leur amour est-il assez fort pour résister à la tempête qui s’annonce ?

    Le texte officiel de la production originale du West End (Londres) d'Harry Potter et l'Enfant Maudit.

    Être Harry Potter n’a jamais été facile et ne l’est pas davantage depuis qu’il est un employé surmené du Ministère de la Magie, marié et père de trois enfants.

    Tandis que Harry se débat avec un passé qui refuse de le laisser en paix, son plus jeune fils, Albus, doit lutter avec le poids d’un héritage familial dont il n’a jamais voulu. Le destin vient fusionner passé et présent. Père et fils se retrouvent face à une dure vérité: parfois, les ténèbres surviennent des endroits les plus inattendus.

    Le texte de la pièce Harry Potter et l’enfant maudit a initialement été publié comme une « édition spéciale répétition », parue à l’été 2016, en même temps que la première de la pièce de Jack Thorne dans le West End londonien. La pièce de théâtre, d’après une histoire originale de J.K. Rowling, John Tiffany et Jack Thorne, a été accueillie avec enthousiasme par les spectateurs comme les critiques, tandis que le texte officiel devenait instantanément un bestseller mondial.

    Cette version définitive et finale de la pièce met à jour l’ « édition spéciale répétition », avec le dialogue définitif de la pièce, qui a subtilement changé depuis les répétitions, complété par un entretien entre le metteur en scène John Tiffany et l’auteur Jack Thorne. Ils y partagent quelques histoires et réflexions à propos de la lecture de pièces de théâtre. Cette édition comprend également des informations contextuelles utiles, notamment l’arbre généalogique de la famille Potter et une chronologie des événements se déroulant dans le monde des sorciers avant le début d’Harry Potter et l’enfant maudit.
    « Les héros et les héroïnes qui triomphent dans ses histoires ne sont pas ceux qui disposent des pouvoirs magiques les plus puissants, mais plutôt ceux qui manifestent le plus de bienveillance, de bon sens et d'ingéniosité. »

    Les fans des aventures de Harry Potter le savent bien, les rayons de la bibliothèque de Poudlard abritent toutes sortes d'ouvrages fascinants. Il y en a trois dont vous avez probablement entendu parler par certains élèves de Poudlard, et que vous pouvez désormais ajouter à votre liste de lecture, notamment Les Contes de Beedle le Barde.

    Les histoires de Beedle sont un recueil de contes de fées populaires écrits pour les jeunes sorcières et sorciers que les élèves de Poudlard connaissent aussi bien que les enfants moldus connaissent Cendrillon et La Belle au bois dormant. Vous vous demandez ce qui vous attend ? Eh bien, vous allez vous régaler !

    Vous rirez en suivant la pagaille semée par le cadeau espiègle d'un père à son fils dans Le Sorcier et la marmite sauteuse.

    La Fontaine de la Bonne Fortune vous entraînera dans une quête à travers un jardin enchanté aux côtés de trois sorcières et d'un chevalier malchanceux.

    Le Sorcier au cœur velu vous racontera l'histoire d'un jeune sorcier qui craignait l'amour et eut recours à la magie noire pour l'éviter à tout prix.

    Babbitty Lapina et la souche qui gloussait détaille la rencontre calamiteuse entre un roi écervelé, un charlatan rusé et une blanchisseuse polissonne.

    Et pour finir, le plus emblématique des contes de Beedle. Le Conte des trois frères, avec son message empreint d'humilité et de sagesse, vous présentera, chère lectrice, cher lecteur, les Reliques de la Mort.

    Chaque conte est accompagné de notes fantaisistes et éclairées d'un certain Albus Dumbledore, le directeur préféré de toutes et de tous.

    On dit que ces cinq contes sont réclamés à cor et à cri dans les foyers de sorciers depuis des siècles. À présent, c'est à vous de découvrir ces histoires du monde des sorciers.

    A marvelous new novel from the Pulitzer Prize-winning author of The Lowland and Interpreter of Maladies—her first in nearly a decade—about a woman questioning her place in the world, wavering between stasis and movement, between the need to belong and the refusal to form lasting ties.
     
    A Most Anticipated Novel of 2021 from 
     Buzzfeed  O, The Oprah Magazine  TIME  Vulture  Vogue  LitHub  Harper's Bazaar

    Exuberance and dread, attachment and estrangement: in this novel, Jhumpa Lahiri stretches her themes to the limit. In the arc of one year, an unnamed narrator in an unnamed city, in the middle of her life’s journey, realizes that she’s lost her way. The city she calls home acts as a companion and interlocutor: traversing the streets around her house, and in parks, piazzas, museums, stores, and coffee bars, she feels less alone.

    We follow her to the pool she frequents, and to the train station that leads to her mother, who is mired in her own solitude after her husband’s untimely death. Among those who appear on this woman’s path are colleagues with whom she feels ill at ease, casual acquaintances, and “him,” a shadow who both consoles and unsettles her. Until one day at the sea, both overwhelmed and replenished by the sun’s vital heat, her perspective will abruptly change.
     
    This is the first novel Lahiri has written in Italian and translated into English. The reader will find the qualities that make Lahiri’s work so beloved: deep intelligence and feeling, richly textured physical and emotional landscapes, and a poetics of dislocation. But Whereabouts, brimming with the impulse to cross barriers, also signals a bold shift of style and sensibility. By grafting herself onto a new literary language, Lahiri has pushed herself to a new level of artistic achievement.
    Our earliest experiences shape our lives far down the road, and What Happened to You? provides powerful scientific and emotional insights into the behavioral patterns so many of us struggle to understand.

    “Through this lens we can build a renewed sense of personal self-worth and ultimately recalibrate our responses to circumstances, situations, and relationships. It is, in other words, the key to reshaping our very lives.”—Oprah Winfrey

    This book is going to change the way you see your life.

    Have you ever wondered "Why did I do that?" or "Why can't I just control my behavior?" Others may judge our reactions and think, "What's wrong with that person?" When questioning our emotions, it's easy to place the blame on ourselves; holding ourselves and those around us to an impossible standard. It's time we started asking a different question.

    Through deeply personal conversations, Oprah Winfrey and renowned brain and trauma expert Dr. Bruce Perry offer a groundbreaking and profound shift from asking “What’s wrong with you?” to “What happened to you?”

    Here, Winfrey shares stories from her own past, understanding through experience the vulnerability that comes from facing trauma and adversity at a young age. In conversation throughout the book, she and Dr. Perry focus on understanding people, behavior, and ourselves. It’s a subtle but profound shift in our approach to trauma, and it’s one that allows us to understand our pasts in order to clear a path to our future—opening the door to resilience and healing in a proven, powerful way.

    A young Puritan woman--faithful, resourceful, but afraid of the demons that dog her soul--plots her escape from a violent marriage in this riveting and propulsive novel of historical suspense from the #1 New York Times bestselling author of The Flight Attendant.


    Boston, 1662. Mary Deerfield is twenty-four-years-old. Her skin is porcelain, her eyes delft blue, and in England she might have had many suitors. But here in the New World, amid this community of saints, Mary is the second wife of Thomas Deerfield, a man as cruel as he is powerful. When Thomas, prone to drunken rage, drives a three-tined fork into the back of Mary's hand, she resolves that she must divorce him to save her life. But in a world where every neighbor is watching for signs of the devil, a woman like Mary--a woman who harbors secret desires and finds it difficult to tolerate the brazen hypocrisy of so many men in the colony--soon becomes herself the object of suspicion and rumor. When tainted objects are discovered buried in Mary's garden, when a boy she has treated with herbs and simples dies, and when their servant girl runs screaming in fright from her home, Mary must fight to not only escape her marriage, but also the gallows. A twisting, tightly plotted novel of historical suspense from one of our greatest storytellers, Hour of the Witch is a timely and terrifying story of socially sanctioned brutality and the original American witch hunt.
    While ninety percent of the world’s millionaires are men, only ten percent are women, making it difficult for women to wield the economic power that will create lasting equality. Rachel Rodgers, founder of Hello Seven, a company that coaches women in scaling their businesses and their lives to seven figures, says it’s time for a change.

    Women deserve the economic power and equality that comes with wealth, and we all have it in us to be millionaires. We Should All Be Millionaires details a realistic, achievable, step-by-step path to become a millionaire within the next three years.

    Whatever is currently stopping you from having seven figures in the bank—whether it is doubt, feeling overwhelmed, imposter syndrome, trying too many things, or simply not knowing where to begin—this book shows you how to clear every obstacle in your way.

    We Should All Be Millionaires will forever change the way you think about money and your ability to earn it.

    In this book, Rachel Rodgers—mother of four, attorney, business owner, and self-made Black millionaire— shares the lessons she’s learned both in her own journey to wealth and in coaching hundreds of women through their own journeys to seven figures.

    Inside, you’ll learn:

    • Why earning more money is not “selfish” or “greedy” but in fact, a revolutionary act that brings the economy into balance and creates a better world for all.
    • Why most of the financial advice you’ve heard in the past (like “skip your daily latte to save money”) is absolute nonsense.
    • An eye-opening history lesson on how women and people of color have been shut out of the ability to build wealth for centuries—and how we can fix this.
    • How to stop making broke-ass decisions that leave you feeling emotionally and financially depleted, and start making million dollar decisions instead.
    • Why aiming to earn $100K per year is not enough, and why you need to be setting your goals much higher.
    • The crucial ingredients you need if you are serious about becoming a millionaire: including your million-dollar vision, million-dollar squad, and more.
    • Strategies to bring more money in the door and fatten your bank account immediately. (Including Rodgers’ $10K in 10 Days Challenge which hundreds of women have completed—with incredible results.)

    It’s time to construct an entirely new attitude about money, claim your power, and build the financial security that you need and deserve.

    Tarana Burke and Dr. Brené Brown bring together a dynamic group of Black writers, organizers, artists, academics, and cultural figures to discuss the topics the two have dedicated their lives to understanding and teaching: vulnerability and shame resilience.

    Contributions by Kiese Laymon, Imani Perry, Laverne Cox, Jason Reynolds, Austin Channing Brown, and more

    It started as a text between two friends.

    Tarana Burke, founder of the ‘me too.’ Movement, texted researcher and writer Brené Brown to see if she was free to jump on a call. Brené assumed that Tarana wanted to talk about wallpaper. They had been trading home decorating inspiration boards in their last text conversation so Brené started scrolling to find her latest Pinterest pictures when the phone rang.

    But it was immediately clear to Brené that the conversation wasn’t going to be about wallpaper. Tarana’s hello was serious and she hesitated for a bit before saying, “Brené, you know your work affected me so deeply, but as a Black woman, I’ve sometimes had to feel like I have to contort myself to fit into some of your words. The core of it rings so true for me, but the application has been harder.”

    Brené replied, “I’m so glad we’re talking about this. It makes sense to me. Especially in terms of vulnerability. How do you take the armor off in a country where you’re not physically or emotionally safe?”

    Long pause.

    “That’s why I’m calling,” said Tarana. “What do you think about working together on a book about the Black experience with vulnerability and shame resilience?”

    There was no hesitation.

    Burke and Brown are the perfect pair to usher in this stark, potent collection of essays on Black shame and healing. Along with the anthology contributors, they create a space to recognize and process the trauma of white supremacy, a space to be vulnerable and affirm the fullness of Black love and Black life.

    In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be "positive" all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people.

    For decades, we’ve been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F**k positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let’s be honest, shit is f**ked and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn’t sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is—a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is his antidote to the coddling, let’s-all-feel-good mindset that has infected American society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up.

    Manson makes the argument, backed both by academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade, but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited—"not everybody can be extraordinary, there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault." Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek.

    There are only so many things we can give a f**k about so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real-talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F**k is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • “This book is a gift! I’ve been practicing their strategies, and it’s a total game-changer.”—Brené Brown, PhD, author of the #1 New York Times bestseller Dare to Lead

    This groundbreaking book explains why women experience burnout differently than men—and provides a simple, science-based plan to help women minimize stress, manage emotions, and live a more joyful life.

    Burnout. Many women in America have experienced it. What’s expected of women and what it’s really like to be a woman in today’s world are two very different things—and women exhaust themselves trying to close the gap between them. How can you “love your body” when every magazine cover has ten diet tips for becoming “your best self”? How do you “lean in” at work when you’re already operating at 110 percent and aren’t recognized for it? How can you live happily and healthily in a sexist world that is constantly telling you you’re too fat, too needy, too noisy, and too selfish?

    Sisters Emily Nagoski, PhD, and Amelia Nagoski, DMA, are here to help end the cycle of feeling overwhelmed and exhausted. Instead of asking us to ignore the very real obstacles and societal pressures that stand between women and well-being, they explain with compassion and optimism what we’re up against—and show us how to fight back. In these pages you’ll learn

    • what you can do to complete the biological stress cycle—and return your body to a state of relaxation
    • how to manage the “monitor” in your brain that regulates the emotion of frustration
    • how the Bikini Industrial Complex makes it difficult for women to love their bodies—and how to defend yourself against it
    • why rest, human connection, and befriending your inner critic are keys to recovering and preventing burnout

    With the help of eye-opening science, prescriptive advice, and helpful worksheets and exercises, all women will find something transformative in these pages—and will be empowered to create positive change. Emily and Amelia aren’t here to preach the broad platitudes of expensive self-care or insist that we strive for the impossible goal of “having it all.” Instead, they tell us that we are enough, just as we are—and that wellness, true wellness, is within our reach.

    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BOOKRIOT

    Burnout is the gold standard of self-help books, delivering cutting-edge science with energy, empathy, and wit. The authors know exactly what’s going on inside your frazzled brain and body, and exactly what you can do to fix it. . . . Truly life-changing.”—Sarah Knight, New York Times bestselling author of Calm the F*ck Down
    A groundbreaking approach to transforming traumatic legacies passed down in families over generations, by an acclaimed expert in the field
     
    Depression. Anxiety. Chronic Pain. Phobias. Obsessive thoughts. The evidence is compelling: the roots of these difficulties may not reside in our immediate life experience or in chemical imbalances in our brains—but in the lives of our parents, grandparents, and even great-grandparents. The latest scientific research, now making headlines, supports what many have long intuited—that traumatic experience can be passed down through generations. It Didn’t Start with You builds on the work of leading experts in post-traumatic stress, including Mount Sinai School of Medicine neuroscientist Rachel Yehuda and psychiatrist Bessel van der Kolk, author of The Body Keeps the Score. Even if the person who suffered the original trauma has died, or the story has been forgotten or silenced, memory and feelings can live on. These emotional legacies are often hidden, encoded in everything from gene expression to everyday language, and they play a far greater role in our emotional and physical health than has ever before been understood.
     
    As a pioneer in the field of inherited family trauma, Mark Wolynn has worked with individuals and groups on a therapeutic level for over twenty years. It Didn’t Start with You offers a pragmatic and prescriptive guide to his method, the Core Language Approach. Diagnostic self-inventories provide a way to uncover the fears and anxieties conveyed through everyday words, behaviors, and physical symptoms. Techniques for developing a genogram or extended family tree create a map of experiences going back through the generations. And visualization, active imagination, and direct dialogue create pathways to reconnection, integration, and reclaiming life and health. It Didn’t Start With You is a transformative approach to resolving longstanding difficulties that in many cases, traditional therapy, drugs, or other interventions have not had the capacity to touch.

    "This book blew my mind. More importantly, it made financial independence seem achievableI read Financial Freedom three times, cover-to-cover." 
    Lifehacker

    Money is unlimited. Time is not. Become financially independent as fast as possible.


    In 2010, 24-year old Grant Sabatier woke up to find he had $2.26 in his bank account. Five years later, he had a net worth of over $1.25 million, and CNBC began calling him "the Millennial Millionaire." By age 30, he had reached financial independence. Along the way he uncovered that most of the accepted wisdom about money, work, and retirement is either incorrect, incomplete, or so old-school it's obsolete.

    Financial Freedom is a step-by-step path to make more money in less time, so you have more time for the things you love. It challenges the accepted narrative of spending decades working a traditional 9 to 5 job, pinching pennies, and finally earning the right to retirement at age 65, and instead offers readers an alternative: forget everything you've ever learned about money so that you can actually live the life you want.

    Sabatier offers surprising, counter-intuitive advice on topics such as how to:

    *
      Create profitable side hustles that you can turn into passive income streams or full-time businesses
    *  Save money without giving up what makes you happy
    *  Negotiate more out of your employer than you thought possible
    *  Travel the world for less
    *  Live for free--or better yet, make money on your living situation
    *  Create a simple, money-making portfolio that only needs minor adjustments
    *  Think creatively--there are so many ways to make money, but we don't see them.

    But most importantly, Sabatier highlights that, while one's ability to make money is limitless, one's time is not. There's also a limit to how much you can save, but not to how much money you can make. No one should spend precious years working at a job they dislike or worrying about how to make ends meet. Perhaps the biggest surprise: You need less money to "retire" at age 30 than you do at age 65.

    Financial Freedom is not merely a laundry list of advice to follow to get rich quick--it's a practical roadmap to living life on one's own terms, as soon as possible.

    Financial Freedom is not merely a laundry list of advice to follow to get rich quick--it's a practical roadmap to living life on one's own terms, as soon as possible.
    NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The author of The Talent Code unlocks the secrets of highly successful groups and provides tomorrow’s leaders with the tools to build a cohesive, motivated culture.

    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY BLOOMBERG AND LIBRARY JOURNAL

    Where does great culture come from? How do you build and sustain it in your group, or strengthen a culture that needs fixing?

    In The Culture Code, Daniel Coyle goes inside some of the world’s most successful organizations—including the U.S. Navy’s SEAL Team Six, IDEO, and the San Antonio Spurs—and reveals what makes them tick. He demystifies the culture-building process by identifying three key skills that generate cohesion and cooperation, and explains how diverse groups learn to function with a single mind. Drawing on examples that range from Internet retailer Zappos to the comedy troupe Upright Citizens Brigade to a daring gang of jewel thieves, Coyle offers specific strategies that trigger learning, spark collaboration, build trust, and drive positive change. Coyle unearths helpful stories of failure that illustrate what not to do, troubleshoots common pitfalls, and shares advice about reforming a toxic culture. Combining leading-edge science, on-the-ground insights from world-class leaders, and practical ideas for action, The Culture Code offers a roadmap for creating an environment where innovation flourishes, problems get solved, and expectations are exceeded.

    Culture is not something you are—it’s something you do. The Culture Code puts the power in your hands. No matter the size of your group or your goal, this book can teach you the principles of cultural chemistry that transform individuals into teams that can accomplish amazing things together.

It blows all other books on culture right out of the water.”—Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Option B, Originals, and Give and Take

    “If you want to understand how successful groups work—the signals they transmit, the language they speak, the cues that foster creativity—you won’t find a more essential guide than The Culture Code.”—Charles Duhigg, New York Times bestselling author of The Power of Habit and Smarter Faster Better

    Tessa and Hardin’s love was complicated before. Now it’s more confusing than ever. AFTER WE FELL...Life will never be the same. #HESSA

    Just as Tessa makes the biggest decision of her life, everything changes. Revelations about first her family, and then Hardin’s, throw everything they knew before in doubt and makes their hard-won future together more difficult to claim.

    Tessa’s life begins to come unglued. Nothing is what she thought it was. Not her friends. Not her family. The one person she should be able to rely on, Hardin, is furious when he discovers the massive secret she’s been keeping. And rather than being understanding, he turns to sabotage.

    Tessa knows Hardin loves her and will do anything to protect her, but there’s a difference between loving someone and being able to have them in your life. This cycle of jealousy, unpredictable anger, and forgiveness is exhausting. She’s never felt so intensely for anyone, so exhilarated by someone’s kiss—but is the irrepressible heat between her and Hardin worth all the drama? Love used to be enough to hold them together.

    Tessa and Hardin have defied all the odds, but will their fairy tale ending be turned on its head? AFTER EVER HAPPY...Life will never be the same. #HESSA

    It’s never been all rainbows and sunshine for Tessa and Hardin, but each new challenge they’ve faced has only made their passionate bond stronger and stronger. But when a revelation about the past shakes Hardin’s inpenetrable façade to the core—and then Tessa suffers a tragedy—will they stick together again, or be torn apart?

    As the shocking truth about each of their families emerges, it’s clear the two lovers are not so different from each other. Tessa is no longer the sweet, simple, good girl she was when she met Hardin—any more than he is the cruel, moody boy she fell so hard for. Tessa understands all the troubling emotions brewing beneath Hardin’s exterior, and she knows she’s the only one who can calm him when he erupts. He needs her.

    But the more layers of his past come to light, the darker he grows, and the harder he pushes Tessa—and everyone else in his life—away. Tessa’s not sure if she really can save him—not without sacrificing herself. She refuses to go down without a fight. But who is she fighting for—Hardin or herself?
