By Melinda Powell
We spend a third of our lives sleeping and, as new research would suggest, almost all of that is spent dreaming. Despite this, very few of us try to explore the messages our brain is projecting, or try to use this knowledge in our everyday lives. Dreams teaches us how to better remember and interpret our dreams – and how we can use them to improve our waking life.
By Cassie Mendoza-Jones
Discover how to nurture, expand and maintain a creative life that’s deeply aligned to who you are. Blending practical tools with personal insights, coach (and mama) Cassie Mendoza-Jones offers a toolkit to build a beautiful, sustainable life – and business. Worried about your path (or struggling to find one at all)? A book for you, whether you feel your creative river is flowing or dry.
By Bronwyn Sell
When stuck-in-the-friend-zone Amy Lowery and her charming but romantically challenged family gather at their Whitsundays resort for their first wedding in decades. The stage is set for romance – especially when Amy meets an intriguing stranger. Just one problem: he is her new stepbrother. Add an interfering gran, annoying siblings and a group of naval officers to the mix and it’s chaos.
By Emma Jane Unsworth
A misadventure of maturity, a satire on our age of self-promotion, a tender look at the impossibility of womanhood, a love story, a riot – Adult is everything you want it to be, and more. Emma Jane Unsworth unpicks adulthood and how excruciating it can be with a gut-punch and a book laden with truth that you’ll want to pass onto your friends. Who can relate?
By Lucia Osborne-Crowley
Okay, it’s a heavy topic! But it’s also an important conversation-starter about the link between our past, our mind and our body. And, how honesty can be liberating, even when heartbreaking. In this (very) candid memoir, Lucia Osborne-Crowley shares her life story, and the sexual assault she experienced as a young gymnast. But, it’s what came next which makes this book a page-turner – and a kind of therapy.
