In Left-Handed Wolf, Adam Day has crafted lines of brevity and precision without the least hint of preciousness; instead, the reader finds sharp juxtapositions of language, imagery, and sound. These are not-quite-haiku hewn from the materials of our soiled world. Beauty exists, but it's smudged, sullied, and sometimes horrific. In this raw, engaging, gorgeously observed collection, Day explores the compromised beauty of our world.--Laura Sims, author of Staying Alive

Adam Day is the author of Model of a City in Civil War. He is the recipient of a PEN Emerging Writers Prize, a Poetry Society of America Chapbook Fellowship, and an Al Smith Fellowship from the Kentucky Arts Council. His poems have appeared in the American Poetry Review, Boston Review, the Kenyon Review, ​and elsewhere. He lives in Louisville, Kentucky, where he directs the Baltic Writing Residency.

About the book: Weelicious founder Catherine McCord is an expert recipe developer who helps families eat healthfully and deliciously. When her son started suffering from chronic nausea and her family doctors couldn’t help, McCord turned to her experience with nutrition for an answer, researching until she discovered a surprisingly simple solution—smoothies. She shared her family’s story and some of her favorite smoothie recipes on social media, and the Smoothie Project, a daily online source of inspiration, was born. People began to use her recipes and share how smoothies had become a force of change in their lives, too.

About the author: Catherine McCord is the founder of the popular website weelicious.com and the family food brand One Potato. McCord is the author of Weelicious and Weelicious Lunches. She has appeared on Today, Good Morning America, and Hallmark’s Home and Family, and is a regular on the NBC Emmy-winning show Danny Seo Naturally as well as Food Network’s #1 rated Guy’s Grocery Games.

Popular blogger offers readers strategies to avoid negative thought patterns, streamline decisions they're often prone to overthink, and proactively bring more peace, joy, and love into their lives.

We've all been there: stuck in a cycle of what-ifs, plagued by indecision, paralyzed by the fear of getting it wrong. Nobody wants to live a life of constant overthinking, but it doesn't feel like something we can choose to stop doing. It feels like something we're wired to do, something we just can't escape. But is it?

Anne Bogel's answer is no. Not only can you overcome negative thought patterns that are repetitive, unhealthy, and unhelpful, you can replace them with positive thought patterns that will bring more peace, joy, and love into your life. In Don't Overthink It, you'll find actionable strategies that can make an immediate and lasting difference in how you deal with questions both small--Should I buy these flowers?--and large--What am I doing with my life? More than a book about making good decisions, Don't Overthink It offers you a framework for making choices you'll be comfortable with, using an appropriate amount of energy, freeing you to focus on all the other stuff that matters in life.
 
 
Anne Bogel is the author of Reading People and I'd Rather Be Reading and creator of the blog Modern Mrs Darcy and the podcasts What Should I Read Next? and One Great Book.
