About Kiva

Kiva aims to connect people through lending for the sake of alleviating poverty via Kiva is a person-to-person micro-lending website, empowering individuals to lend directly to entrepreneurs in the developing world. The people users see on Kiva's site are real individuals in need of funding - not marketing material. When users browse entrepreneurs' profiles on the site, choose someone to lend to, and then make a loan, users are helping a real person make great strides towards economic independence and improve life for themselves, their family, and their community. Throughout the course of the loan (usually 6-12 months), users can receive email journal updates and track repayments. Then, when users get their loan money back, users can relend to someone else in need.

Peterson to authors making their grand debut , such as Hayley Scrivenor with Dirt Town.

Not only are we dying to get our paws on this book, but we’re excited to see where this ends. A truly underrated YA fantasy series from a talented and bright writer. For those of you who like to doomscroll on TikTok until the wee hours of the morning, don’t miss E. Lockhart’s Family of Liars, the long-awaited prequel to #Booktok sensation, We Were Liars. Let’s dive into the best new book releases coming out in May. READ MORE Kin Thai: Modern Thai Recipes to Cook at Home by John Chantarasak Image: Hardie Grant About the book: Its chapters are structured by type of dish, from snacks and relishes to curries, stir-fries and salads, so you can easily find your favourites – from Roast Duck and Lychee Red Curry (gaeng daeng bpet) and Langoustine and Rhubarb Hot and Sour Soup (dtom yum goong) to Red Fire Greens with Yellow Soybean Sauce (pak kheo fai daeng) and Assorted Flavour One-bite Royal Snack (miang kham). As well as using ingredients native to Thailand, Chantarasak explores the origins of the western ingredients, explaining their place in Thai cuisine, and how the competent home cook can use them to achieve Asian flavours. Release date: May 18, 2022 Where to buy: Money With Jess by Jessica Irvine Image: Wiley About the book: Does thinking about money make you feel overwhelmed, confused or anxious? That ends now. Join one of Australia’s most loved and respected economics journalists, Jessica Irvine, as she helps you strip away your negative money thoughts and teaches you the real meaning of money: how to get it, how to spend it and how to save it. Whether you want to buy a home, retire comfortably, sleep well at night, leave a job you hate or borrow to build your wealth, learning to budget your money is the foundation of all good money decisions. Money with Jess unpacks the unique and simple system Jess created for organising, tracking and investing her own money. Release date: May 9, 2022 Where to buy: Image: Penguin Australia About this book: A powerful and personal guide on how to be effective, no matter who you’re trying to influence. Whether it’s the racist relative sitting across the table at a family function, or the CEO blind to the institutional barriers to people of colour in the workplace, award-winning journalist and vivacious leader Antoinette Lattouf has some tips and advice on what to do. Unlike Dale Carnegie’s How to Win Friends and Influence People, it won’t advise you not to criticise, condemn or complain but instead explores the fallout when you do just that. With searing insights into the popularity contests you’ll forgo, and how to decide which races are worth running — and crucially which simply aren’t worth time or energy. Release date: May 3, 2022 Where to buy this new book release:  Image: Allen Lane About the book: In 12 Rules for Life, acclaimed public thinker and clinical psychologist Jordan B. Peterson offered an antidote to the chaos in our lives — eternal truths applied to modern anxieties. His insights have helped millions of readers and resonated powerfully around the world. Now in this long-awaited sequel, Peterson goes further, showing that part of life’s meaning comes from reaching out into the domain beyond what we know, and adapting to an ever-transforming world. While an excess of chaos threatens us with uncertainty, an excess of order leads to a lack of curiosity and creative vitality. Beyond Order therefore calls on us to balance the two fundamental principles of reality — order and chaos — and reveals the profound meaning that can be found on the path that divides them. Release date: May 3, 2022 Where to buy: Book of Night by Holly Black Image: Penguin Random House About this book: In Charlie Hall’s world, shadows can be altered, for entertainment and cosmetic preferences — but also to increase power and influence. You can alter someone’s feelings and memories, but manipulating shadows has a cost, with the potential to take hours or days from your life. Your shadow holds all the parts of you that you want to keep hidden — a second self, standing just to your left, walking behind you into lit rooms. And sometimes, it has a life of its own. Charlie is a low-level con artist, working as a bartender while trying to distance herself from the powerful and dangerous underground world of shadow trading. But when a terrible figure from her past returns, Charlie’s present life is thrown into chaos, and her future, seems at best, unclear and at worst, non-existent. Determined to survive, Charlie throws herself into a maelstrom of secrets and murder, setting her against a cast of doppelgangers, mercurial billionaires, shadow thieves, and her own sister all desperate to control the magic of the shadows. Release date: May 3, 2022 Where to buy: Family of Liars by E. Lockhart Image: Allen & Unwin About this book: While We Were Liars was initially published back in 2014, it wasn’t until two summers ago that Lockhart’s daughter forwarded her a TikTok video that blew up with the hashtag #WeWereLiars. Suddenly, people were sobbing, throwing her book at the wall (a good thing, we swear). Now, the long awaited sequel for We Were Liars‘ is coming out this month and we’ll finally get to know the truth behind the mysterious Sinclair family. In Family of Liars, readers return to the Sinclair family’s private island, 27 years prior to the events of We Were Liars. Carrie and her sisters love returning to their family beach house every summer, at least until a tragic accident befalls the sisters. As the family deals with the fallout, Carrie tries to deal with her own grief. As the summer continues, she finds love with an irresistible and unpredictable boy while the sisters deal with an unforgivable betrayal and terrible, terrible mistakes. Release date: May 4, 2022 Where to buy: The Blood Traitor by Lynette Noni Image: Penguin Australia About this new book release: Kiva thought she knew what she wanted — revenge. But feelings change, people change… everything has changed. After what happened at the palace, Kiva is desperate to know if her friends and family are safe, and whether those she wronged can ever forgive her. But with the kingdoms closer to the brink of war than they’ve ever been, and Kiva far away from the conflict, more is at stake than her own broken heart. Plus, if you order from Booktopia you can receive a signed copy from Lynette Noni — but only while stocks last.
