Book Excerpt :

The invention of the moving picture camera was one of the most innovative items to ever be introduced. From its earliest use, it allowed a person to be transported to another place and time. When the silent film era began it not only transported, it captivated audiences around the world as they watched the Keystone Cops, Charlie Chaplin, Douglas Fairbanks, Rudolph Valentino, and hundreds of others grace the silver screen. By the dawn of the talkies, millions of women were swooning over Clark Gable, John Boles, and Errol Flynn. They were only a few of “the men” in the golden age of Hollywood and they are the role models that would shape the generations of actors to come. Join Hollywood reporter Sylvia Safran Resnick as she escorts you down memory lane to the days when Tyrone Power graced the stage and screen. Through the pages of The Evolution of the Hollywood Heartthrob, she’ll take you on a biographical journey from the 1930s men you loved to the ones who make your heart skip a beat today. It’s a fascinating look at Old Hollywood, New Hollywood, and the fabulous years in between!

Book Short Summary:

Hollywood heartthrob, Gavin Price invaded our small town, Sunrise Bay, like he owned it. Gavin was my biggest celebrity crush when I was young. He bears the charisma of an easygoing boy-next-door mixed with a rule-breaker personality both in person and on screen. For a moment, I thought maybe my fairy godmother sent him to me. Until he decided to run against my mother for mayor. Everyone in our town knows my mom’s happiness comes before my own, so I take it as my personal mission to show him who really runs this town. I just didn’t realize that being my mom’s right-hand woman would put me in such close proximity to him. Very quickly, I question whether he wants to win the mayoral race or me.

Book Short Summary:

In Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, Donald Bogle tells–for the first time–the story of a place both mythic and real: Black Hollywood. Spanning sixty years, this deliciously entertaining history uncovers the audacious manner in which many blacks made a place for themselves in an industry that originally had no place for them. Through interviews and the personal recollections of Hollywood luminaries, Bogle pieces together a remarkable history that remains largely obscure to this day. We discover that Black Hollywood was a place distinct from the studio-system-dominated Tinseltown–a world unto itself, with unique rules and social hierarchy. It had its own talent scouts and media, its own watering holes, elegant hotels, and fashionable nightspots, and of course its own glamorous and brilliant personalities. Along with famous actors including Bill “Bojangles” Robinson, Hattie McDaniel (whose home was among Hollywood’s most exquisite), and, later, the stunningly beautiful Lena Horne and the fabulously gifted Sammy Davis, Jr., we meet the likes of heartthrob James Edwards, whose promising career was derailed by whispers of an affair with Lana Turner, and the mysterious Madame Sul-Te-Wan, who shared a close lifelong friendship with pioneering director D. W. Griffith. But Bogle also looks at other members of the black community–from the white stars’ black servants, who had their own money and prestige, to gossip columnists, hairstylists, and architects–and at the world that grew up around them along Central Avenue, the Harlem of the West. In the tradition of Hortense Powdermaker’s classic Hollywood: The Dream Factory and Neal Gabler’s An Empire of Their Own, in Bright Boulevards, Bold Dreams, Donald Bogle re-creates a vanished world that left an indelible mark on Hollywood–and on all of America.

Book Short Summary:

Some Decisions Change Your Day. Some Will Change Your Life. While the headlines screamed “Hollywood Heartthrob Marries Girl Next Door,” the public relationship of Jack Harrington and Grace Winslowe never revealed the private struggles that threatened to pull them apart–and when celebrity biographer Jada Eastman starts digging, she discovers that there’s more to this couple than anyone could guess. Their relationship began like a scene from one of Jack’s movies. Leaving behind a dead-end relationship and the bitter Chicago winter, Grace had moved to Southern California to start a new life. Meanwhile, Jack had established himself as an up-and-comer with considerable acting talent, and a private heartache. When a fateful accident pulled the two of them together, they couldn’t avoid their initial attraction or the vast differences in their values and lifestyles. Now, against the backdrop of Beverly Hills and the 24/7 nature of the entertainment world, Jada grapples with her own beliefs as she encounters the spiritual chasm of this famous couple. Can Grace and Jack face the consequences of their own personal histories–and can the biographer avoid being affected? As the three of them examine the couple’s bittersweet story, it becomes clear that everyday decisions can carry lifetime consequences when individual worlds collide.

Book Short Summary:

Could the wrong man on paper be the right man in real life? I know it’s clichéd, but I’m a financial planner and I like lists. Except my girlfriends think that having a checklist for my ideal man is going a step too far. It doesn’t matter that I’m the only one of us who is still unattached. Or that I’ve always dreamed of starting a family and settling down. I’m not going to lower my standards. I certainly wouldn’t fall for a guy like Dave, who is opposite to me in every way. He’s got bad boy written all over him, and his eyes are completely the wrong color. In fact, he doesn’t tick any of my boxes. I can still admire him, though. And maybe flirt a little—but not too much. I need to keep things professional now he’s a client. But the thing is, I’ve never met anyone like Dave before and I’m starting to wonder about the reasons behind my list. Reasons I’ve tried to leave in the past but are coming back to haunt me. Am I brave enough to rewrite my list? Or worse—get rid of it completely?

Book Short Summary:

Hailed by #1 New York Times Bestselling Author Lauren Blakely for Nudes as "Passionate, emotional and uplifting!", contemporary romance author Sarah Robinson brings readers a collection of sexy Hollywood romances that tackle challenging themes like the intersection of sexuality and female empowerment while also exciting readers with every page. NUDES Ben Lawson is making a comeback... After a few tabloid headlines, they think they know me. They don't know a damn thing. As CEO of a movie production company, I'll show them who I really am when we hit it big at the box office. My ex thought her smear tactics would ruin me, but I'm unbreakable. Rising from the debris, I swore I'd never let a woman distract me like that again. But then, my leading actress walked on the set and changed everything. Seductive, sexy, and unapologetic, Aria Rose could break me. I wanted to help her, protect her...love her. Instead, I destroyed her. Aria Rose is baring it all.... I knew better. I knew not to trust another Hollywood heartthrob with a reputation like his. He was my boss and became my ruin. I should have stayed far away from him. Ben Lawson promised me the world. He even promised me his heart. But he destroyed everything--my heart, my career, us. BARE Reed Scott is the hottest actor in LA... Being a Hollywood heartthrob has its perks, and I've damn sure enjoyed every one of them, both on and off the silver screen. The tabloids loved every second of exploiting my privacy, chronicling my mistakes in ink for the whole world to see. Accepting the lead role in a romantic dance film was guaranteed to make me a box office hit and help me rewrite my image, until the choreographer hired to train me turned out to be the only woman I'd ever loved and lost. As beautiful and enticing as ever, Teagan walks in and reminds me of the worst mistake I've ever made. She should hate me, and now she has the power to destroy everything I am. Teagan Reynolds is picking up the pieces... Fool me once, shame on you. Fool me twice...never going to happen. I fell in love with Reed Scott once and it nearly killed me--literally. The last thing I want to do now is teach him how to dance, but I need this job and there's no way I'm letting him take yet another thing away from me. Reed is in my world now, and this time we're dancing by my rules. SHEER Grant Mercer is on the run from his secrets… This was supposed to be an easy assignment—travel halfway across the globe and compose the musical score for an upcoming Hollywood movie by one of the biggest production companies in Los Angeles. One and done like dozens of times before. I wasn't supposed to have my entire life crumble around me the moment my plane took off. I wasn't supposed to meet her. Intriguing and covered in ink, Simone enters my life like a storm, leaving only heartbreak in her wake. I should keep my distance. Hell, she should keep hers. Instead, we did the exact opposite. Simone Reynolds is mending a broken heart… Just months after finaling in one of television's most watched singing competitions, I should be riding the high of my life. I should be celebrating starring in a musical film predicted to rock the box office. It's hard to bask in my success when my family is suffering a loss we never saw coming. And then there's Grant—brooding and rugged and an absolute pain in my ass as he messes with my movie. He's as broken as I am, but the perfect harmony is only a leap of faith away. Includes a bonus extended series epilogue with the entire family, and two short excerpts from the author's other novels.

Ever wondered how Keanu Reeves rose to stardom? Keanu Reeves is one of the most maddening forces in Hollywood – an actor who has produced a body of fascinating work, while still somehow serving as a lightning rod for criticism. After a turbulent childhood, Reeves first burst onto the film scene as somewhat of a laid-back and goofy character, appearing in several popular slacker comedies. It wasn’t until the dawn of the new millennium that the actor finally flew to prominence as one of the most recognized movie heroes in all of cinematic history. Though the iconic role of Neo in the Matrix trilogy made Reeves a certified movie star, the actor has spent the majority of his career trying to prove himself as a true acting talent while escaping the shadow of his action hero claim to fame. For more interesting facts you must read his biography. Grab your biography book now!

Book Short Summary:

The North American entertainment industry is rapidly consolidating, and new modes of technological delivery challenge Canadian content regulations. An understanding of how Canadian culture negotiates its rapport with American genres has never been more timely. West/Border/Road offers an interdisciplinary analysis of contemporary Canadian manifestations of three American genres: the western, the border, and the road. It situates close readings of literary, film, and television narratives from both English Canada and Quebec within a larger context of Canadian generic borrowing and innovation. Katherine Ann Roberts calls upon canonical works in Canadian studies, theories of genre, and a wide range of scholarship from border studies, cultural studies, and film studies to examine how genre is appropriated and sometimes reworked and how these cultural narratives engage with discourses of contemporary Canadian nationhood. The author elucidates Guy Vanderhaeghe’s rewriting of the codes of the historical western to include the trauma of Aboriginal peoples, Aritha van Herk’s playful spoof on American western iconography, the politics and perils of the representation of the Canada-US border in CBC-produced crime television, and how the road genre inspires and constrains the Québécois and Canadian road movie. A reminder of the power and limitations of American genres, West/Border/Road provides a nuanced perspective on Canadian engagement with cultural forms that may be imported but never foreign.

Book Short Summary:

"A Best Film Book of 2013" - The Huffington Post To the soldiers in the armed forces during World War II, the pin-up girl was more than a symbol of lust. What the fighting man needed during that tumultuous period were entities of beauty that informed them there was goodness left in this world worth fighting for. The girls who posed for pin-up purposes best represented the beauty that yet existed. So on their barracks walls were images of Betty Grable and Rita Hayworth. Painted on the outside of their aircraft were life-size copies of Jane Russell and Gene Tierney. In their duffel bags were photographs of Veronica Lake and Rochelle Hudson. These famous celebrities, by posing for the boys in the military, used their uncommon appeal to reinforce in the mind of the sailor, soldier and marine that fairness was still present and needed to be defended. Their role was not simply objects of lust, but something more profound, which informed the fighting men that America was behind them—applauded them for their patriotism and sacrifices.

Book Short Summary:

A cerebral and wildly funny story revolving around the incongruity of a gold Rolex watch spotted on a lowly goatherd’s wrist Daily conversations in outdoor cafés with cultured friends can help make reality a little more real. Unfortunately, however, during one such conversation, one man spots a gold Rolex watch on a TV soap opera’s goatherd. This seemingly small absurdity sets off alarms: strange sensations of deception, distress, and incipient madness. The two men’s uneasiness soon becomes a nightmare as the TV adventure advances with a real-life plot — involving a mutant strain of killer algae — to take over the world! The Conversations, a reality within a fiction within a parallel reality, is hilariously funny and surprisingly touching.

Book Short Summary:

Fans used to be seen as an overly obsessed fraction of the audience. In the last few decades, shifts in media technology and production have instead made fandom a central mode of consumption. A range of ideas has emerged to explore different facets of this growing phenomenon. With a foreword by Matt Hills, Understanding Fandom introduces the whole field of fan research by looking at the history of debate, key paradigms and methodological issues. The book discusses insights from scholars working with fans of different texts, genres and media forms, including television and popular music. Mark Duffett shows that fan research is an emergent interdisciplinary field with its own key thinkers: a tradition that is distinct from both textual analysis and reception studies. Drawing on a range of debates from media studies, cultural studies and psychology, Duffett argues that fandom is a particular kind of engagement with the power relations of media culture.

Then one “real” person comes back into his life, Poppy Talbot. The woman left behind in his quest for money and fame. Poppy still has the same sweetness as she did when they were love-struck teenagers. She could save him—if he could get her to forgive the past and win her trust... In Search of Escape...

Book Short Summary:

Team Aniston or Team Jolie? Whether you have admittedly chosen a side, chances are you know the feud these slogans reference and perhaps even remember where you were when news of the Aniston-Pitt split broke. Over the past three decades, buzz over the rich and famous has exploded, thanks in part to refined technology, well-oiled media outlets, and a dedicated few who have greased up their own laptops to challenge the tabloid giants (think Perez Hilton). Much to their chagrin, or so they say, celebrities have become all the rage, lending to their adoring, or simply inquisitive, public not only a glamorous escapism but also the reality that even megastars suffer fault. Marjorie Hallenbeck-Huber fills you in on the juiciest bits to hit the celebrity gossip circuit over the past three decades. Read about the most bizarre hookups (Lance Armstrong and an Olsen twin, anyone?); marriages that lasted a Hollywood second, or fifty-five hours in the case of Britney Spears; celebrity baby names, like Heavenly Hiranni Tiger Lily, that even the creative teams at Crayola could not dream up; diet tricks and training regimens that guarantee a camera-ready body; “it” travel destinations where celebs go to laze under the sun—or to do good; and infamous crack-ups that surely sent publicists into a damage-control frenzy. Did we forget to mention sex tapes? Celebrities’ Most Wanted™ grants you access to the fascinating world of the rich and famous, where Red Carpet is a season, Fiji is more than a bottle of water, and saving the world is not such a far-off possibility.

Book Short Summary:

In the instant New York Times, Wall Street Journal and Washington Post bestseller, Jeetendr Sehdev inspires people everywhere to learn from the way celebrities engage their fan bases. In the space of five years, Jeetendr Sehdev has shaken up the world of entertainment by revealing how social media stars generate more obsession than the Hollywood A-list. What can he teach us about making our own ideas, products, and services break through? Sehdev shows why successful images today–the most famous being Kim Kardashian–are not photoshopped to perfection, but flawed, vulnerable, and in your face. This total transparency generates a level of authenticity that traditional marketing tactics just can’t touch. From YouTube sensations like Jenna Marbles to billionaire tech mogul Elon Musk, The Kim Kardashian Principle reveals the people, products, and brands that do it best. After all, in a world where a big booty can break the Internet and the president is a reality TV star, self-obsession is a must-have. No posturing, no apologies, and no shying away from the spotlight. The Kim Kardashian Principle is a fresh, provocative, and eye-opening guide to understanding why only the boldest and baddest ideas will survive–and how to make sure yours is one of them.
