Book Excerpt :

Selma Blair has played many roles: Ingenue in Cruel Intentions. Preppy ice queen in Legally Blonde. Muse to Karl Lagerfeld. Advocate for the multiple sclerosis community. But before all of that, Selma was known best as … a mean baby. In a memoir that is as wildly funny as it is emotionally shattering, Blair tells the captivating story of growing up and finding her truth. "Blair is a rebel, an artist, and it turns out: a writer." —Glennon Doyle, Author of the #1 New York Times Bestseller Untamed and Founder of Together Rising The first story Selma Blair Beitner ever heard about herself is that she was a mean, mean baby. With her mouth pulled in a perpetual snarl and a head so furry it had to be rubbed to make way for her forehead, Selma spent years living up to her terrible reputation: biting her sisters, lying spontaneously, getting drunk from Passover wine at the age of seven, and behaving dramatically so that she would be the center of attention. Although Selma went on to become a celebrated Hollywood actress and model, she could never quite shake the periods of darkness that overtook her, the certainty that there was a great mystery at the heart of her life. She often felt like her arms might be on fire, a sensation not unlike electric shocks, and she secretly drank to escape. Over the course of this beautiful and, at times, devasting memoir, Selma lays bare her addiction to alcohol, her devotion to her brilliant and complicated mother, and the moments she flirted with death. There is brutal violence, passionate love, true friendship, the gift of motherhood, and, finally, the surprising salvation of a multiple sclerosis diagnosis. In a voice that is powerfully original, fiercely intelligent, and full of hard-won wisdom, Selma Blair’s Mean Baby is a deeply human memoir and a true literary achievement.

Book Short Summary:

Everything you need to know about getting your baby or toddler to sleep -- from America's foremost baby and childcare experts. Babies don't automatically know how to sleep through the night; they need to be taught. The Sears family has learned from decades of pediatric practice, bolstered by their own parenting experiences, that different babies have different nighttime temperaments -- and, of course, different families have different lifestyles. Instead of espousing the kind of "one method fits all" approach advocated in other baby sleep guides, the Sears family explains how you can create a sleep plan that suits the needs of your entire family. With a sharp focus on the practical tools and techniques, The Baby Sleep Book covers such topics as: The facts of infant sleep vs. adult sleep Figuring out where, when, and how your child sleeps best Fail-safe methods for soothing a crying infant How to make night nursing easier, and how to stop Nighttime fathering tips Whether co-sleeping makes sense for you Nap-time strategies that work Medical and physical causes of night waking Sleep habits in special situations such as traveling, teething, and illness

Book Short Summary:

As midwives, it is our duty and responsibility to provide quality education and care for women through their entire birthing experience. It is a vital aspect of what we do, but at times, it can be very challenging providing this education. What has been provided for you here is basically what every midwife wished you knew when you walked in the door. While we cannot always give you this information in person, it is here as a guide for you to educate yourselves about anything and just about everything to do with pregnancy, labor, birth, and the next few days. Evidence-based practice and woman-centered care are the founding principles of midwifery practice. The information provided in My Body, My Baby reflects the most up-to-date research and evidence about any particular aspect of your journey at the time of publication. This is important, no doubt. But what is more important is how we use this evidence in our practice and how you use this information to educate yourself. A woman who has done her homework and knows to ask her questions and who knows her rights and the meaning of informed decisions and consentthose are the women that enable us, as midwives, to provide truly woman-centered care. Standing with a woman and developing trust and backing her up when shes vulnerable are so much more effective when she has an idea of what she does and doesnt want for herself and her baby, and in this case, the saying is so true. Knowledge is power. Please use this information to make sure that even in your most vulnerable state, you are working from a position of power. After all, it is your body and your baby.

But none as terrible as this. He is Deucalion, a tattooed man of mysterious origin, a sleight-of-reality artist who has traveled the centuries with a secret worse than death. He arrives in New Orleans as a serial killer stalks the streets, a killer who carefully selects his victims for the humanity that is missing in himself. Deucalion’s path will lead him to cool, tough police detective Carson O’Connor and her devoted partner, Michael Maddison, who are tracking the slayer but will soon discover signs of something far more terrifying: an entire race of killers who are much more—and less—than human and, deadliest of all, their deranged, near-immortal maker, Victor Helios—once known as Frankenstein. This thrilling eBook bundle includes: BOOK ONE: PRODIGAL SON BOOK TWO: CITY OF NIGHT BOOK THREE: DEAD AND ALIVE BOOK FOUR: LOST SOULS BOOK FIVE: THE DEAD TOWN “A rarity among bestselling writers, Koontz continues to pursue new ways of telling stories, never content with repeating himself.

Book Short Summary:

The Root Cellar By C. A. Thomas The idea for The Root Cellar came during one of many periods of extemporary daydreams. The first chapter opened up like a giant movie screen and, in the spur of a moment, it became necessary to quickly find a pen and paper. The words were coming so fast in one afternoon, nearly all the main characters had presented themselves. It was time to get out the old typewriter. Yet it was fun for author C. A. Thomas; plotting and planning, talking to herself, taking each characters’ part, repeating each phrase, grimacing in the mirror. The comment that is often lamented about a thing becoming, “a labor of love,” is absolutely understandable. Days went by. And those days turned into weeks. It took two old, run-down typewriters and an out-of-date word processor to eventually finish the original work. Subsequent readings of the completed manuscript led to many changes. Editing of the original got to be quite cumbersome, but The Root Cellar was finally a finished product.

Ayla, the heroine first introduced in The Clan of the Cave Bear, is known and loved by millions of readers. Now, in The Plains of Passage, Ayla’s story continues. Ayla and Jondalar set out on horseback across the windswept grasslands of Ice Age Europe. To the hunter-gatherers of their world--who have never seen tame animals--Ayla and Jondalar appear enigmatic and frightening. The mystery surrounding the woman, who speaks with a strange accent and talks to animals with their own sounds, is heightened by her uncanny control of a large, powerful wolf. The tall, yellow-haired man who rides by her side is also held in awe, not only for the magnificent stallion he commands, but also for his skill as a crafter of stone tools, and for the new weapon he devises, the spear-thrower. In the course of their cross-continental odyssey, Ayla and Jondalar encounter both savage enemies and brave friends. Together they learn that the vast and unknown world can be difficult and treacherous, but breathtakingly beautiful and enlightening as well.

Book Short Summary:

The debut novel from the “Munro-esque” (Houston Post) author of Disasters in the First World, Here Lies is Olivia Clare Friedman’s visceral and portentous look at mourning, memory, and motherhood in an alternate Louisiana ravaged by climate change. Louisiana, 2042. Spurred by the effects of climate change, states have closed graveyards and banned burials, making cremation mandatory and the ashes of loved ones state-owned unless otherwise claimed. In the small town of St. Genevieve, Alma lives alone and struggles to grieve in the wake of her young mother Naomi’s death, during which Alma failed to honor Naomi’s final wishes. Now, Alma decides to fight to reclaim Naomi’s ashes, a journey of unburial that will bring into her life a mysterious and fiercely loyal stranger, Bordelon, who appears in St. Genevieve after a storm, as well as a group of strong, rebellious local women who, together, teach Alma anew the meaning of family and strength. With poignance, poeticism, and deep insight in Here Lies, Olivia Clare Friedman gives us a stunning portrait of motherhood, friendship, and humanity in an alternate American South torn asunder by global warming.
