It’s a summer to remember . . . at the Jersey Shore. Giovanna “Gia” Spumanti and her cousin Isabella “Bella” Rizzoli are going to have the sexiest summer ever. While they couldn’t be more different—pint-size Gia is a carefree, outspoken party girl and Bella is a tall, slender athlete who always holds her tongue—for the next month they’re ready to pouf up their hair, put on their stilettos, and soak up all that Seaside Heights, New Jersey, has to offer: hot guidos, cool clubs, fried Oreos, and lots of tequila. So far, Gia’s summer is on fire. Between nearly burning down their rented bungalow, inventing the popular “tan-tags” at the Tantastic Salon where she works, and rescuing a shark on the beach, she becomes a local celebrity overnight. Luckily, she meets the perfect guy to help her keep the flames under control. Firefighter Frank Rossi is exactly her type: big, tan, and Italian. But is he tough enough to handle Gia when things really heat up? Bella is more than ready for some fun in the sun. Finally free of her bonehead ex-boyfriend, she left home in Brooklyn with one goal in mind: hooking up with a sexy gorilla for a no-strings-attached summer fling. In no time, she lands a job leading “Beat Up the Beat” dance classes at a local gym, and is scooped up by Beemer-driving, preppy Bender Newberry. Only problem: Bella can’t get her romantic and ripped boss Tony “Trouble” Troublino out of her head. He’s relationship material. Suddenly, Bella’s not sure what she wants. The cousins soon realize that for every friend they make on the boardwalk, there are also rivals, slummers, and frenemies who will do anything to ruin their summer—and try their relationship. Before July ends, the bonds of family and friendship will be stretched to the breaking point. Will the haters prevail, or will Gia and Bella find love at the Shore? For everyone who loves MTV’s hit reality show, Nicole “Snooki” Polizzi’s sweet, funny, and sexy novel perfectly captures the heat, the energy, the fun, and the drama of Jersey Shore.

In Geordie Shore star Scotty T's first ever book, we hear the tearaway 'Toon's exclusive, behind-the-scenes account of the MTV show. If you thought Scotty T's outrageous behaviour on Geordie Shore was just for the cameras, think again. Long before starring in the show, Scotty was living life to the fullest and getting up to all sorts. In this hilarious page turner, Scotty T will not only let slip scandalous secrets from Geordie Shore, Ex on the Beach and Celebrity Big Brother, but will open up about his antics when the cameras stop rolling. But it's not all sex, fights and getting mortal! Scotty also reveals a surprisingly softer side and opens up about living with ADHD, coping with the breakdown of his parents’ marriage and picking up the pieces after the loss of a loved one. The rascal also reflects on the lasses who have tried and failed to tame his heart and introduces us to the love of his life who has been living in the shadows all this time. And if all that wasn't enough, Scotty explains why he loves maths so much, what it was like to join the Neighbours cast, plus finally admits what he really thinks about his castmates, why he was nearly kicked off the show by producers and what life has in store for him after Geordie Shore.

Once bitten and twice shy about workplace romances, Florida aquarium employees Dani Davidson and Evan Sanders are determined to resist their mutual attraction. A baby dolphin and a stingray encounter help bring them together, but will a bitter ex-lover, Dani’s inhibitions, and Evan’s career aspirations tear them apart? Find out in Annette Mardis’ great new romance, The Shore Thing. Danielle “Dani” Davidson vows to just say no to workplace romances after her first post-college job is soured by a messy breakup with a manipulative coworker. That’s just one reason she doesn’t trust any man with her heart, let alone one who swims with sharks for a living. So why can’t she get Evan Sanders out of her mind? Evan is twice shy, too, after an alluring but self-absorbed colleague takes a bite out of his heart. Though he’s dead set against dating anyone else he works with, he’s still intrigued by Dani’s intelligence, shyness, and low-key sexiness. Dani leads tours and educates guests, and Evan is the chief photographer/videographer at an aquarium and marine animal hospital in the west-central Florida town of Gulf Shore. Their attraction smolders until an unfortunate encounter with a stingray sends Dani to the emergency room and Evan steps up to help her through her recovery. The two also bond over the rescue of an orphaned baby dolphin. But will Evan’s vindictive ex-lover, his career ambitions, and Dani’s inhibitions tear the young lovers apart?

„Kafka am Strand" ist der ungewöhnlichste Entwicklungs- und Liebesroman, den wir bisher von Japans Kultautor gelesen haben: zeitlos und ortlos, voller Märchen und Mythen, zwischen Traum und Wirklichkeit – und dabei voller Weisheit. „Als mein fünfzehnter Geburtstag gekommen war, ging ich von zu Hause fort, um in einer fernen, fremden Stadt in einem Winkel einer kleinen Bibliothek zu leben. Wenn ich alles der Reihe nach erzähle, brauche ich dafür wahrscheinlich eine Woche. Wenn ich stattdessen zunächst nur die wichtigen Punkte aufführe, dauert es ungefähr genauso lange. Das klingt vielleicht wie der Beginn eines Märchens. Aber es ist kein Märchen. In keinem Sinne.“ Der Erzähler dieser Zeilen heißt Kafka Tamura und seine Reise führt in Wirklichkeit aus der realen Welt hinaus in sein eigenes Inneres, entlang an den Ufern des Bewusstseins. Eine schicksalhafte Prophezeiung, der Geschichte von Ödipus gleich, lenkt Kafkas labyrinthischen Weg. „Kafka am Strand“ heißt das Bild an der Wand von Saeki, der rätselhaften Leiterin jener kleinen Bibliothek. Und „Kafka am Strand“ heißt auch der Song aus der Zeit, als Saeki noch Pianistin war und einen jungen Mann leidenschaftlich liebte, sie waren ein Paar wie Romeo und Julia. Die Wege des Erzählers Kafka kreuzen sich auf geheimnisvolle Weise mit den ihren und denen eines alten Mannes, der die Sprache der Katzen versteht und Spuren folgt, die in eine andere Welt weisen.

When you’re this smokin’, winning is a shore thing. . . . Jersey’s sexiest guidettes are back for another scandalous summer at the Shore, and this time, Giovanna “Gia” Spumanti and Isabella “Bella” Rizzoli are raising the stakes to find thrills and hot gorillas—unemployment, douchebag exes, family drama, and dingy apartment be damned! But when the girls unknowingly cross an overprotective mafiosa mama, all bets are off. Booted from Seaside Heights for good, the spunky, sequined meatball and her sensitive, quiet cousin are forced to flee to Atlantic City. Their escort out of hell is Fredo, a weird and scrawny but hooked-up club manager from a prominent family, whose master plan is to pimp out Gia’s psychic gifts at the roulette tables. Suddenly, it’s raining benjamins for the coiffed and tanned threesome. Top-shelf tequila and seafood dinners are not all they’re scoring. Bella snags a pale but talented boardwalk artist, Gia hooks up with a high-stakes poker hottie, and with Gia’s coaching, Fredo just might have a chance at becoming a certified juicehead. Or, at least, a gorilla-in-training. But when the casino suspects cheating, the trio is hounded by haters and tricksters determined to sabotage their endless summer. With hearts and loot on the line, losing is not a chance the crew can take. This time, the house isn’t going to win. . . .
