Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

Tiffany can't avoid being funny: it's just who she is. But The Last Black Unicorn is so much more than a side-splittingly hilarious collection of essays - it's a memoir of the struggles of one woman who came from nothing and nowhere. A woman who was able to achieve her dreams by reveling in her pain and awkwardness, showing the world who she really is, and inspiring others through the power of laughter.

This is a very touching and inconsistency a REAL person...by a STRONG WELL ROUNDED WOMAN that may just be a hero to all young people...YOUNG WOMEN IN PARTICULAR. It is funny, real, sad and most of all truthful to its readers. I would read it again and again because of this. Tiffany Haddish you are MY HERO.

The Great Recession has shuffled Clay Jannon out of his life as a San Francisco Web-design drone - and serendipity, sheer curiosity, and the ability to climb a ladder like a monkey has landed him a new gig working the night shift at Mr. Penumbra’s 24-Hour Bookstore. But after just a few days on the job, Clay begins to realize that this store is even more curious than the name suggests. There are only a few customers, but they come in repeatedly and never seem to actually buy anything....

Sophie Kinsella's debut is a romp through the perils of shopping and spending, spending, spending! Becky can't resist a sale, and she's only a little overdrawn on her VISA. Readers will laugh aloud at Becky's retail adventures as she finds new and creative ways to relieve her increasingly credit card debt. Emily Gray's narration bounces along with Becky and her buying whims, while delivering a humorous account of what happens when credit goes bad.

i love Dan Brown...but this work is one of his best. He reaches and touches on ideas, thoughts, wonders, truths and falsehoods that are all previlant and attained today. It is a personal reflection you get to join in this writing. You get to discover yourself more clearly and what is and is not possible.

You may know him as an actor, but Alan Cumming is also a singer, director, producer and author. His New York Times best-selling memoir Not My Father's Son is the gripping story of his complicated relationship with his father and the mystery of his grandfather's untimely death. Suspenseful, brave, moving and honest, it's a book about finding good through bad and light beyond darkness.

For years and many enjoyable stories we have read tidbits about the infamous CRAVENS GAMING CLUB, and FINALLY we have his and its story!

This STORY was definitely worth every moment of waiting. Mrs. Kleypas NEVER disappoints her readers. The story is beautiful, funny, heart warmingly endearing to ALL of the characters. I cannot wait to read any NEW stories that come along (soon I hope) and reread all of the previous ones that already exsist.
