*DISCOVER THE AMAZING POWER OF POETRY TO MAKE EVEN THE MOST F**KED UP TIMES FEEL BETTER* When it feels like the world is falling apart around you, things can seem pretty f**ked. But even the greatest poets past and present have also lived through sh*t times. And you know what? Just like us, they felt f**ked off about the way the world was going - and they wrote about it in poems that show that no matter how bad things might seem, you're not alone. In Poems for a world gone to sh*t you will find inspiration to guide you on a journey from feeling 'what the f**k' and that first instinct to just get the f**k away from it all, to getting some peace and perspective before feeling empowered to do something about this sh*t - and finally realising that life can still be pretty damn beautiful. Reflective, funny, political, inspiring, insightful, dark and sometimes light, these poems are about remembering to keep looking up at the stars, whatever sh*t life throws at you.Poems for a world gone to sh*t includes poems by Nikita Gill, Kate Tempest, Hollie McNish, Wendy Cope, Kim Addonizio, Francine Elena, Larkin, Lorca, Tracy K. Smith, Emily Dickinson, Byron, Milton, Emily Bronte, Christina Rossetti, William Blake, Paul Dunbar, Coleridge, Shakespeare, Shelley, Charlotte Bronte, Katherine Mansfield, Walt Whitman, Lola Ridge, Edward Lear, Kipling, Lewis Carroll, Edith Nesbit, Khalil Gibran . . . and many more.

*From the 'anti-guru' author of the smash hit The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k and the New York Times bestseller Get Your Sh*t Together * In The Life-Changing Magic of Not Giving a F**k, our favourite 'anti-guru' Sarah Knight unleashed the power of saying no. In Get Your Sh*t Together, she prioritised the sh*t you need and want to do so you can achieve your hopes and dreams. Now she's back, doubling down on your happiness with her latest message: You Do You. Being yourself should be the easiest thing in the world. Yet instead of leaning in to who we are, we fight it, listening too closely to what society tells us. You Do You helps you shake off those expectations, say f**k perfect, start looking out for number one and keep on with your badass self. From career and finances to relationships and family, lifestyle and health, Sarah Knight rips up the rulebook. Writing about her mistakes and embarrassments in her own personal quest to 'do me' - because nobody gets everything right all day, every day - Sarah Knight shows why you can and should f**k up and teaches you to let yourself off the hook, bounce back and keep standing tall.What everyone is saying about Sarah Knight:'The anti-guru' Observer'I love Knight' Sunday Times 'Life-affirming' Lucy Mangan, Guardian 'Genius' Vogue

Authors:
Bruno Vincent

Enid Blyton's books are beloved the world over and The Famous Five have been the perennial favourite of her fans. Now, in this new series of Enid Blyton for Grown-Ups, George, Dick, Anne, Julian and Timmy confront a new challenge: is it possible to get a good gluten-free cream tea?Julian, Anne, Dick, George and Timmy are all feeling really rather rum, and it's been going on for days. Nothing seems to work, and with their doctors mystified, they're driven to trying out various expedients to cure themselves. Julian goes online to self-diagnose that he's got pancreatic cancer, bird flu and Creutzfeldt-Jakob Disease. Anne decides that the old methods are the best and decides to have herself exorcised - which proves to be an awful lot of bother for everyone, and such a mess. Dick goes to a witch-doctor who calls himself a 'homeopath' ('sounds only one short of sociopath, Dick!') but it's George who discovers they need to go on an exclusion diet, so they enter a world of hard-to-find, maddeningly expensive specialist foods . . .Just perfect for anyone who likes Deliciously Ella, Amelia Freer and the Naturalista - as well as any reluctant partners who are begrudgingly spiralising courgettes for dinner.
