A vicious bully. An abusive, alcoholic mother. A father behind bars.
High school Sophomore Bailey Sykes is just trying to make it through another day. But when life starts to spiral out of control, and the suffering she endures becomes too much to bear, she writes a list— a list that cannot be unwritten. This crumpled piece of paper is more terrifying than a knife or gun. The names are marked with small ovals, shaped like bullets— like the bullets Bailey plans to take their lives with.
It’s as if by writing their names down, I have already taken their lives. I feel more normal and clear-headed than ever when reading over my Bullet List. I have used nothing but logic to create it, and what’s more logical than abolishing the people who hurt you most in this world?
I have a list, an actual list of people who are going to die.
On my eighteenth birthday my father, the senator, gives me the gift he thinks every little girl dreams of.
The man of my dreams, and the wedding to match.
Stefan Zoric is heir to an elite worldwide modeling agency. Practically a prince.
My arrangement is simple, as far as sham marriages go.
I give him my virginity, behave as the perfect wife and he’ll pay for the college degree my father found irrelevant.
But I don’t want to be the perfect wife.
The Truro Murders presents the shocking true story of Christopher Worrell, and his accomplice, James Miller. The events in this book unveil one of the worst serial killing sprees in Australian history. Over the course of two months in 1976-1977, seven young women were brutally raped and murdered.
Worrell and Miller met in prison, and upon release, developed a dominant and submissive relationship that centred around feeding Worrell’s sadistic urges towards women. Miller would deny any involvement in the murders, claiming his love for Worrell was the basis for his cooperation and silence.
In the space of twelve months between 1978-1979, remains of two of the victims were found within 1km of one another. Police linked the two bodies with another five young females reported missing in the area.

After terrorizing Walnut Grove, Kentucky all her adolescent life, she’s back and she’s ready to go on the up and up. Make something of herself.

Have you wondered why some sixty-year-olds look and feel like forty-year-olds and why some forty-year-olds look and feel like sixty-year-olds? While many factors contribute to aging and illness, Dr. Elizabeth Blackburn discovered a biological indicator called telomerase, the enzyme that replenishes telomeres, which protect our genetic heritage. Dr. Blackburn and Dr. Elissa Epel’s research shows that the length and health of one’s telomeres are a biological underpinning of the long-hypothesized mind-body connection. They and other scientists have found that changes we can make to our daily habits can protect our telomeres and increase our health spans (the number of years we remain healthy, active, and disease-free).
It’s a crime scene worthy of Hieronymus Bosch, so shocking and so senseless it challenges the local law and intrigues veteran reporter Geneva Chase whose career may be dying alongside that of her small town newspaper.
The Sheffield Post headline shouts, “Cops Call Murder Scene ‘Slaughterhouse.” On the scene, Genie spurs the Deputy Police Chief to tell her quietly, “Six bodies…all nude…hacked to pieces.” Even tough Geneva shivers. How could such a slaughter happen on Connecticut’s moneyed Gold Coast? To privileged couples inside a historic 1898 Queen Anne mansion on the shoreline of Long Island Sound? Where is the protection afforded by the gated community and the security technology in place?
One moment changed their lives forever.
A band plays, glasses clink, and four teens sneak into the Mexican desert, the hum of celebration receding behind them.
Crack. Crack. Crack.
Not fireworks—gunshots. The music stops. And Pato, Arbo, Marcos, and Gladys are powerless as the lives they once knew are taken from them.
Then they are seen by the gunmen. They run. Except they have nowhere to go. The narcos responsible for their families’ murders have put out a reward for the teens’ capture. Staying in Mexico is certain death, but attempting to cross the border through an unforgiving desert may be as deadly as the secrets they are trying to escape…
