Ma vie en mieux Parce que je le veux bien
Notre bonheur dépend des choix que l'on fait. On sait tous ce qui est bon pour nous. On sait aussi ce qui ne l'est pas. Mais on n'a pas toujours le courage de prendre les bonnes décisions. Pour y parvenir, Gretchen Rubin propose d'inverser le problème : il faut s'affranchir des décisions. Et c'est là tout le pouvoir des habitudes : elles nous libèrent de l'effort, d'un travail permanent sur nous mêmes. Une fois une règle de conduite admise, il n'y a plus qu'à se laisser porter. En revanche, tout le monde n'a pas le même goût pour les habitudes. Le lecteur devra donc dans un premier temps définir sa personnalité à l'aide du test proposé par l'auteur, pour appliquer dans un second temps la stratégie du changement qui lui correspond.
Before I Fall
They say ‘live every day as if it’s your last’ – but you never actually think it’s going to be. At least I didn’t. The thing is, you don’t get to know when it happens. You don’t remember to tell your family that you love them or – in my case – remember to say goodbye to them at all. But what if, like me, you could live your last day over and over again? Could you make it perfect? If your whole life flashed before your eyes, would you have no regrets? Or are there some things you’d want to change...?

I Wish Someone Were Waiting for Me Somewhere
Following the publication of Anna Gavalda's international bestseller, Hunting and Gathering, this book introduces us to Anna Gavalda's witty and dazzling collection of stories, I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere, together with her heartbreaking and poignant novella, Someone I Loved - both published in the UK for the first time. I Wish Someone Were Waiting For Me Somewhere explores how a life can be changed irrevocably in just one fateful moment. A pregnant mother's plans for the future unravel at the hospital; a travelling salesman learns the consequences of an almost-missed exit on the motorway in the newspaper the next morning; while a perfect date is spoilt by a single act of thoughtlessness. In those crucial moments Gavalda demonstrates her almost magical skill in conveying love, lust, longing, and loneliness. Someone I Loved is a hauntingly intimate look at the intolerably painful, yet sometimes valuable consequences that adultery can have on a marriage and the individuals involved. A simple tale, yet long in substance, Someone I Loved ends like most great love affairs, forever leaving you wanting just one more moment.

Happier at Home
In the spirit of her blockbuster #1 New York Times bestseller The Happiness Project, Gretchen Rubin embarks on a new project to make home a happier place. One Sunday afternoon, as she unloaded the dishwasher, Gretchen Rubin felt hit by a wave of homesickness. Homesick—why? She was standing right in her own kitchen. She felt homesick, she realized, with love for home itself. “Of all the elements of a happy life,” she thought, “my home is the most important.” In a flash, she decided to undertake a new happiness project, and this time, to focus on home. And what did she want from her home? A place that calmed her, and energized her. A place that, by making her feel safe, would free her to take risks. Also, while Rubin wanted to be happier at home, she wanted to appreciate how much happiness was there already. So, starting in September (the new January), Rubin dedicated a school year—September through May—to making her home a place of greater simplicity, comfort, and love. In The Happiness Project, she worked out general theories of happiness. Here she goes deeper on factors that matter for home, such as possessions, marriage, time, and parenthood. How can she control the cubicle in her pocket? How might she spotlight her family’s treasured possessions? And it really was time to replace that dud toaster. Each month, Rubin tackles a different theme as she experiments with concrete, manageable resolutions—and this time, she coaxes her family to try some resolutions, as well. With her signature blend of memoir, science, philosophy, and experimentation, Rubin’s passion for her subject jumps off the page, and reading just a few chapters of this book will inspire readers to find more happiness in their own lives.
