You look like a weirdo. I'm a weirdo with good ice cream. Come on. All right. Friends ate ice cream together, didn't they? I zipped up a hoodie over my tank, not for warmth but because I was too lazy to put on a bra.

*Includes three full length New Adult Romance Books* The Hazards of Skinny Dipping This isn't a deep book about first loves or self-discovery. If you want a book like that, I'd be happy to recommend one, but I don't have that kind of story to tell. Instead my story is about rash decisions and finding out that your dream guy is bad in bed. It's the story of when I finally went skinny dipping, and how my life was never the same again. Oh, and it's also the story of my freshman year of college and realizing Mr. Right might have been there all along. The Hazards of a One Night Stand One small town boy, one girl who wants more, one roll in the hay... Hooking up with your high school crush is a bad idea, a really bad idea. It was only supposed to be one night, one brief departure from my real life, but nothing ever works out exactly the way you plan. Colton Waters was everything from my past that didn't fit into my present, so why did he have to show up at my college and pledge the one frat I couldn't avoid? Because nothing is ever meant to happen just once. At least not the life changing things that mean the difference between falling apart and falling in love. The Hazards of Sex on the Beach One broken heart, one drink too many, one steamy night in the sand... No one warns you about the dangers of drinking with a broken heart. At least no one warned me. I never imagined I'd fall for a musician, especially not one like Chase, but then again I never expected to have my heart broken into a million pieces by the frat guy I thought was the love of my life. Sometimes it's the rash decisions, like hooking up in the sand, that lead you to the best places—the kinds of places where it's possible to let yourself fall in love again.

Lauren Layne, the bestselling author of Blurred Lines, has been called “a fresh new voice in the New Adult genre” by Jen McLaughlin and “a force to be reckoned with” by Rachel Van Dyken. Discover why her signature blend of heart and humor is making a splash with this must-read ebook bundle, which collects three of her steamy, emotional novels: Isn’t She Lovely, Broken, and Crushed. ISN’T SHE LOVELY Stephanie Kendrick gave up her summer to ace her NYU screenwriting course, so she’s pissed to be stuck with preppy, spoiled Ethan Price as her partner—until a ready-made screenplay idea presents itself. Ethan is desperate to make his snobbish mother forget his ex. While Stephanie’s a stretch as a decoy, what with her piercings and goth wardrobe, the right makeover and a pastel cardigan just might do the trick. But when Stephanie joins the Hamptons crowd, the “acting” begins to feel all too real. And Stephanie faces a question she’s afraid to ask: Is Ethan falling for the real her or for the dolled-up princess he wants to see? BROKEN When Olivia Middleton abandons Park Avenue for a coastal town in Maine to help an injured war veteran reenter society, her client isn’t a grateful elderly man. He’s a brooding twenty-four-year-old who has no intention of being Olivia’s charity project . . . and whose smoldering gaze might be her undoing. A hotshot quarterback before the war, Paul Langdon prefers self-imposed exile, even if he must tolerate the newest caretaker for three months to keep his inheritance. But Olivia makes him long for things he can never have. And the further she slips past his defenses, the harder keeping his distance becomes. CRUSHED A lifelong New Yorker, Michael St. Claire just found out the identity of his real father, a total stranger with a family in Texas. It’s there that Michael meets the exquisitely refined Kristin Bellamy, who’s everything he’s always thought he wants. The only problem is that Kristin’s dating Michael’s new half brother—who just so happens to be the longtime crush of Kristin’s mouthy, curvy, sister, Chloe. When Michael offers to help Chloe break them up, she agrees to a deal that seems too good to be true. But after Chloe finally gets her man, she no longer wants the guy she had to fight for—she wants the one who stood by her side. Praise for Lauren Layne’s Redemption series “Fresh and authentic, Lauren Layne’s Isn’t She Lovely packs intelligence, wit, and an addictive romance into one fantastic read! I loved the bold characters, the slow-building yet steamy romance, and the raw and painful edge of self-discovery. I couldn’t put it down!”—New York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack “Isn’t She Lovely is full of complex characters you want to root for—and a hero that will make you swoon.”—New York Times bestselling author Monica Murphy “A solid tale and a quick read, with plenty of steamy romance and sex.”—Library Journal, on Broken “I read Crushed in one sitting because I was utterly unable to put it down. Lauren Layne’s characters are so witty and real. This story warmed my heart and left me feeling good all day. Go, Team Curvy Girls!”—New York Times bestselling author Courtney Cole

If she disappeared on Monday night, more than three days ago, without her phone or her toothbrush, then she is dead, isn’t she? Prolific crime writer Penny Freedman returns with her fifth novel in the Gina Gray series: Drown My Books. The narrative follows the story of Gina Gray, a woman who is disappointed by work, love and life. She has settled on a bleak stretch of the Kent coast where she walks her surly dog, coaches unpromising A-level students and teaches English to asylum seekers in Dover, whose stories break her heart. The one bright spot in her life is the community library and the book group she organises; however, on one grim February morning, her dog finds a body on the beach and her source of comfort turns into her biggest threat... Alarmingly, Gina learns that the dead woman is the second member of the book group to be killed, making Gina convinced that the book group is being targeted. DI Paula Powell, the lead of the police investigation, also happens to be Gina’s old rival in love, and Powell breaks the news that the killer is believed to be among Gina’s class of asylum seekers. With or without the help of DI Paula Powell, Gina has to move fast to find the truth. Could it be one of her asylum-seeker students who she admires so much that is actually a cold-blooded murderer? Drown My Books will appeal to those who enjoy crime and mystery fiction, as well as fans of Penny’s former books. The book will also appeal to fans of Kate Atkinson and Susan Hill, authors that have inspired Penny’s writing.

The past decade has seen the medium of comics reach unprecedented heights of critical acclaim and commercial success. Comics & Media reflects that, bringing together an amazing array of contributors--creators and critics alike--to discuss the state, future, and potential of the medium. Loaded with full-color reproductions of work by such legends as R. Crumb, Art Spiegelman, Alison Bechdel, Chris Ware, Daniel Clowes, and Lynda Barry, the book addresses the place of comics in both a contemporary and historical context. Essays by such high-profile figures as Tom Gunning, N. Katherine Hayles, Patrick Jagoda, and W. J. T. Mitchell address a stunning range of topics, including the place of comics in the history of aesthetics, changes to popular art forms, digital humanities, and ongoing tensions between new and old media. The result is a substantial step forward for our understanding of what comics are and can be, and the growing place they hold in our culture.

The author analyzes the way the girls discuss pleasure in becoming "the eye" of the reader, use film to decode the genres of literature, master forms such as fantasy and Gothic, describe the differences between reading and viewing films, and identify only with animal rather than human characters. Blackford intertwines the vivid voices of her girl respondents with her own story of moving beyond her feminist and multicultural assumptions of how children are shaped by the stories we tell in literature. This breakthrough text presents surprising findings about how girls appreciate literature and what they enjoy about reading.

The Fun Never Stops is a comprehensive collection of premier caricaturist Drew Friedman's best comic strips, illustrations, and mug shots dealing with all the familiar Friedman themes the world has come to love: showbiz has-beens, ugly old white men, nefarious politicians, debauched celebrities, the ubiquitous Lord of Eltingville, etc. Most of the work is from the 1990s, and show Friedman's gradual phasing out of his famous (and amazing) black-and-white stipple look to his current (and equally amazing) lush watercolor style. In addition to the works written by Friedman, Fun includes many collaborations with his longtime partner K. Bidus, as well as Harvey Pekar (American Splendor), Mark Newgarden (We All Die Alone), and Bruce Handy, among others. Also included is artwork from the notorious Topps Bubble Gum Card series Toxic High, as well as art from the card sets Beauties and Cuties and Ed Wood Players. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.9px Arial; color: #424242}
