Right-wing bloggers are skewering popular actress Lena Dunham. Why? Dunham wrote in her memoir about bribing her younger sister to kiss her and apply make-up when they were both children. Conservatives are crying abuse. Susie says give me a break! This misdirected focus on a celebrity is pathetic. Let´s talk about real sexual predators and where they exist. Next, Susie reads a letter from Dan Savage´s newspaper column Savage Love. The letter is from a parent who is perplexed about how to deal with a masturbating teenager. The worry is that his grades will fall and he´ll become porn obsessed. Susie shares her thoughts; the grown-ups need to give the kid some privacy and what he´s doing is normal. Then, in our ´´What´s New on Audible´´ segment, Susie has an audio sample from a coming-of-age memoir to share: A Cup of Water Under My Bed by Daisy Hernadez, a journalist who chronicles what the women in her Cuban-Columbian family taught her about love, money, and race.

Killer Affair by best-selling author Rebecca Chance explores British reality TV in this gripping thriller. A shocking betrayal deserves a wicked revenge.... Stunning, charismatic Lexy O’Brien is the reigning queen of British reality TV. Her life in front of the camera is planned and manipulated as successfully as any military assault. But success breeds jealousy. When you’re on top, the only way is down, and there’s always someone standing by to give you a shove.... Dowdy Caroline Evans, a part-time blogger and writer of erotic fiction, is brought in to chronicle Lexy’s life. Being taken under Lexy’s wing is a dream come true for Caroline. But sampling the star’s lifestyle is like tasting the most addictive of drugs, and it’s not long before she is craving what she can’t possibly have - or can she? And as Caroline and Lexy’s lives and loves become increasingly entwined, it’s only a matter of time before the hidden rivalry becomes a powder keg waiting to explode.... 1. Language: English.

The Real Thing BBQ at its Best! Ein Roadtrip in Bildern von Land, Leuten und Barbecues und den besten Rezepten aus dem Osten, dem Westen und der Mitte von Texas für das beste BBQ der Welt! Die wichtigste Zutat für ein richtiges BBQ ist Zeit, denn hier wird bei niedrigeren Temperaturen langsam gegart und nicht schnellstmöglich und bei großer Hitze gegrillt. Deswegen bleibt das Fleisch beim BBQ saftig, trocknet nicht aus und Stücke, die bei schneller Zubereitung zäh wären, werden dabei butterweich. Ganz zu schweigen von dem unverwechselbaren Raucharoma Jonas Cramby, freier Autor und Blogger, hat sich einen Traum erfüllt und einen Roadtrip mit der ganzen Familie durch Texas gestartet: mitgebracht hat er viele stimmungsvolle Bilder und die besten Rezepte quer durch den Staat, z.B. für Pulled Pork , Smoked Chicken Wings , Beef-Sandwiches, Ribs oder mexikanische Hotdogueros und Texas Hot Guts (geräucherte, selbst gemachte Würstchen), dazu jede Menge Original-Beilagen von Sauerteigbrot bis Mixed Pickles, Bohnen und Krautsalat, nicht zu vergessen die Saucen! Er zeigt, wie man seine eigenen Rubs (Gewürzmischungen) herstellt, bis hin zum ganz persönlichen Geheim-Rub , gibt Tipps zu Geräten, Technik und Werkzeug, zum Holz, der Temperatur und dem Fleisch. Sie werden sehen, die richtige BBQ-Technik ist einfach zu erlernen und umzusetzen, egal ob mit dem Gartengrill oder dem professionellen Smoker und damit gelingt das beste BBQ der Welt auch hierzulande!
´´Elizabeth´s writing style is like Tina Fey is channeling Dear Abby´´ Jenna McCarthy, bestselling author Elizabeth Lyons had a great life raising 5 beautiful kids (who tended to lie down on the floor of Target when things weren´t going their way). She was blessed with great friends (who she had little time to see). She had a well-paying job (that she enjoyed just enough to make it palatable). And then one day while driving down the highway, Happy by Leona Lewis came on the radio. While she hadn´t ever fully paid attention to the lyrics, one line in particular forced her to pull over. I could stand by the side. Watch this life pass me by. So unhappy. But safe as could be. In that moment, getting real honest with herself and developing customized rules to ensure that she began living her best life in order to show her kids by example how to live theirs became non-negotiable. Do you ever feel like... - You need an extra hour in the day. Possibly four. - You fall into bed exhausted most nights yet unsure what you actually did all day (because it definitely wasn´t any of the 367 things on your to-do list). - You miss yourself (even though you´re with yourself all day long)! If so, this book was written just for you. You Cannot Be Serious: and 32 Other Rules That Sustain a (Mostly) Balanced Mom is a roadmap to shift your perspective and put you back in the driver´s seat in order to bring consistent joy back into your amazing life. The alternative is continuing to live in comfortable mediocrity, and that life isn´t for you!
