Once upon a time, I thought love was a fairytale. My prince was a Beast with blood on his hands and ice in his veins. My family offered to save me. The only price: leaving the tattered pieces of my heart behind. Our love was irrational. Cruel. Unforgiving. Nothing like the storybooks said it should be--but it was perfect. The longer we were apart, the more I lost myself. He was vicious and domineering, but I craved the submission. Together we were destructive, but I was addicted to the devastation. Still, I thought titles mattered. To my family I was princess, and to the Beast I was slave. I was too naive to understand that even though he'd been my captor, he'd broken the shackles on my soul. Once upon a time, I thought love meant happily ever after. Now I know better. Beauty is the final book in the Hate Story duet. About what it means to fall in love with the person who has absolutely destroyed you, it contains disturbing and graphic situations that may be a trigger for some.

Die #1 der „New York Times“-Bestsellerliste: Dick UND schön? Unsicher UND mutig? Dumplin‘ ist all das und noch viel mehr. Willowdean – „16, Dolly-Parton-Verehrerin und die Dicke vom Dienst“ – wird von ihrer Mutter immer nur Dumplin' genannt. Bisher hat sie sich in ihrem Körper eigentlich immer wohl gefühlt. Sie ist eben dick – na und? Mit ihrer besten Freundin Ellen an ihrer Seite ist das sowieso total egal. Doch dann lernt sie den sportlichen und unfassbar attraktiven Bo kennen. Kein Wunder, dass sie sich hoffnungslos in ihn verknallt – dass er sie allerdings aus heiterem Himmel küsst, verunsichert sie völlig. Plötzlich macht es ihr doch etwas aus, nicht schlank zu sein. Um ihre Selbstzweifel in den Griff zu bekommen, beschließt Will, sich der furchteinflößendsten Herausforderung in ganz Clover City zu stellen: Sie will am „Miss Teen Blue Bonnet“-Schönheitswettbewerb teilnehmen und allen – vor allem sich selbst – beweisen, dass die Kleidergröße für das ganz große Glück überhaupt keine Rolle spielt. „Badeanzüge haben so etwas an sich, das einen denken lässt, man müsste sich erst das Recht verdienen, sie zu tragen. Aber eigentlich ist doch die entscheidende Frage: Hast du einen Körper? Dann zieh ihm einen Badeanzug an.“

John Milton has usually been regarded as 'the other great poet' in English literature, after Shakespeare. He is the only one of the world's great poets also to have been actively engaged in politics. A radical Protestant and staunch republican, he served as Latin secretary to Oliver Cromwell during the Commonwealth. After the restoration of Charles II, his life was probably saved by his fame as a poet. Apart from the great poems like Paradise Lost and Samson Agonistes, Milton also wrote eloquent treatises on topics including divorce, freedom of the press, kingship and education. This lively new biography by a renowned Milton scholar explores the psychological complexities of a man who must be counted one of the most significant and fascinating writers and thinkers of all time.
