Lips Unsealed by Belinda Carlisle
Requirements: Epub & Mobi reader
The women of the iconic eighties band the Go-Go’s will always be
remembered as they appeared on the back of their debut record: sunny,
smiling, each soaking in her own private bubble bath with chocolates and
champagne. The photo is a perfect tribute to the fun, irreverent brand
of pop music that the Go-Go’s created, but it also conceals the trials
and secret demons that the members of the group—and, in particular, its
lead singer, Belinda Carlisle—struggled with on their rise to stardom.
her unstable childhood home at the age of eighteen, Belinda battled
serious weight issues, having been teased for her pudginess throughout
grade school, and grappled with her confusion about being deserted by
her biological father as a child. This talented but misguided teen found
solace in the punk rock world that so openly welcomed misfits—even
though acceptance had its price.
Not long after
forming, the Go-Go’s became queens of the L.A. punk scene—they sold out
venues, attracted a fiercely loyal fan base, and outpartied almost every
male band they toured with—and in the process kicked down the doors to
the all-boys’ club of eighties rock and roll. With a chart-topping debut
album, Belinda found herself launched to international superstardom—and
with that fame came more access to A-list parties, and even more
and drugs to fuel Go-Go’s mania. Inevitably, Belinda began to self-destruct.
Unsealed is filled with the wild stories that Belinda Carlisle fans are
dying to hear—stories about the band’s crazy days on tour with acts
like the Police and Madness and the fabulous parties and people to whom
the Go-Go’s had exclusive access. But more than that, this candid memoir
reveals the gritty flip side to the glitz, as Belinda shares her
private struggles with abusive relationships, weight, and self-esteem,
and a thirty-year battle with drug and alcohol addiction.
spellbinding and shocking look at her rise, fall, and eventual rebirth
as a wife, mother, and sober artist will leave you wistfully fantasizing
about the eighties decadence she epitomized, but also cringing at the
dark despair hidden behind her charming smile. One of the rare
adventures through rock stardom told by a woman, Lips Unsealed is
ultimately a love letter to music—to the members of the Go-Go’s, who’ve
maintained lifelong friendships, and to the beloved husband and son who
led Belinda to sobriety—and the story of a life that, though deeply
flawed, was, and is still, fully lived.
For almost forty years, Sammy Hagar has been a fixture
in rock music. From breaking into the industry with the band Montrose
to his multiplatinum solo career to his ride as the front man of Van
Halen, Sammy's powerful and unforgettable voice has set the tone for
some of the greatest rock anthems ever written—songs like "I Can't Drive
55," "Right Now," and "Why Can't This Be Love."
Sammy tells the outrageous story of his tear through rock 'n' roll.
From the decadence of being one of the world's biggest rock stars to the
unfiltered story of being forced out of Van Halen, Sammy's account
spares no one, least of all himself. His is a tale of a true rock 'n'
roller—someone who's spent decades bringing the party with him wherever
he goes but always headin' back to Cabo for mÁs tequila.
Nancy Drew is a fictional character in various mystery
series. She was created by Edward Stratemeyer, founder of the
Stratemeyer Syndicate book packaging firm. The character first appeared
in 1930. The books have been ghostwritten by a number of authors and
are published under the collective pseudonym Carolyn Keene.
MUSIC, THE MAKEUP, THE MADNESS, AND MORE. . . . In December of 1972, a
pair of musicians placed an advertisement in the Village Voice:
“GUITARIST WANTED WITH FLASH AND ABILITY.” Ace Frehley figured he had
both, so he answered the ad. The rest is rock ’n’ roll history.He was
just a boy from the Bronx with stars in his eyes. But when he picked up
his guitar and painted stars on his face, Ace Frehley transformed into
“The Spaceman”—and helped turn KISS into one of the top-selling bands
in the world. Now, for the first time, the beloved rock icon reveals
his side of the story with no-holds-barred honesty . . . and no
regrets.For KISS fans, Ace offers a rare behind-the-makeup look at the
band’s legendary origins, including the lightning-bolt logo he designed
and the outfits his mother sewed. He talks about the unspoken division
within the band—he and Peter Criss versus Paul Stanley and Gene
Simmons—because the other two didn’t “party every day.” Ace also
reveals the inside story behind his turbulent breakup with KISS, their
triumphant reunion a decade later, and his smash solo career. Along the
way, he shares wild stories about dancing at Studio 54 with “The
Bionic Woman,” working as a roadie for Jimi Hendrix, and bar-flying all
night with John Belushi. In the end, he comes to terms with his highly
publicized descent into alcohol, drugs, and
self-destruction—ultimately managing to conquer his demons and come out
on top. This is Ace Frehley.No makeup.No apologies.No regrets....

long before her fiftieth birthday, Mackenzie Phillips walked into Los
Angeles International Airport. She was on her way to a reunion of One
Day at a Time, the hugely popular 70s sitcom on which she once starred
as the loveable rebel Julie Cooper. Within minutes, Mackenzie was in
handcuffs, arrested for possession of cocaine and heroin.
into rock and roll royalty, Mackenzie grew up in an all-access kingdom
of hippy freedom and heroin cool. It was a kingdom over which her
father, the legendary John Phillips of The Mamas & the Papas,
presided, often in absentia, a spellbinding, visionary phantom.
Mackenzie was a teenager, Hollywood and the world took notice of the
charming, talented, precocious child actor after her star-making turn in
American Graffiti. As a young woman she joined the nonstop party in
the hedonistic pleasure dome her father created for himself and his
fellow revelers, and a rapt TV audience watched as Julie Cooper wasted
away before their eyes. By the time Mackenzie discovered how deep and
dark her father's trip was going, it was too late. And as an adult, she
has paid dearly for a lifetime of excess, working tirelessly to
reconcile a wonderful, terrible past in which she succumbed to the
power of addiction and the pull of her magnetic father.
her astounding, outrageous, and often tender life story unfolds,
Phillips overcomes seemingly impossible obstacles again and again and
journeys toward redemption and peace. By exposing the shadows and
secrets of the past to the light of day, the star who turned up High on
Arrival has finally come back down to earth -- to stay.
"They've said some crazy things about me over the years. I mean, okay: 'He bit the head off a bat.' Yes. 'He bit the head off a dove.' Yes. But then you hear things like, 'Ozzy went to the show last night, but he wouldn't perform until he'd killed fifteen puppies . . .' Now me, kill fifteen puppies? I love puppies. I've got eighteen of the f**king things at home. I've killed a few cows in my time, mind you. And the chickens. I shot the chickens in my house that night.
It haunts me, all this crazy stuff. Every day of my life has been an event. I took lethal combinations of booze and drugs for thirty f**king years. I survived a direct hit by a plane, suicidal overdoses, STDs. I've been accused of attempted murder. Then I almost died while riding over a bump on a quad bike at f**king two miles per hour.
People ask me how come I'm still alive, and I don't know what to say. When I was growing up, if you'd have put me up against a wall with the other kids from my street and asked me which one of us was gonna make it to the age of sixty, which one of us would end up with five kids and four grandkids and houses in Buckinghamshire and Beverly Hills, I wouldn't have put money on me, no f**king way. But here I am: ready to tell my story, in my own words, for the first time.
A lot of it ain't gonna be pretty. I've done some bad things in my time. I've always been drawn to the dark side, me. But I ain't the devil. I'm just John Osbourne: a working-class kid from Aston, who quit his job in the factory and went looking for a good time.

Between the Lines by Jodi Picoult and Samantha van Leer
Requirements: ePub/Mobi Readers,
Overview: What happens when happily ever after…isn’t?
Delilah is a bit of a loner who prefers spending her time in the school library with her head in a book—one book in particular. Between the Lines may be a fairy tale, but it feels real. Prince Oliver is brave, adventurous, and loving. He really speaks to Delilah.
And then one day Oliver actually speaks to her. Turns out, Oliver is more than a one-dimensional storybook prince. He’s a restless teen who feels trapped by his literary existence and hates that his entire life is predetermined. He’s sure there’s more for him out there in the real world, and Delilah might just be his key to freedom.
Delilah and Oliver work together to attempt to get Oliver out of his book, a challenging task that forces them to examine their perceptions of fate, the world, and their places in it. And as their attraction to each other grows along the way, a romance blossoms that is anything but a fairy tale.

Then came a media frenzy and with the release of Jay Anson's runaway best selling book, "The Amityville Horror," which was later transformed into a blockbuster movie, the story became an international phenomenon. What really happened at 112 Ocean Ave. in Amityville? Mentally Ill in Amityville (MIA), is the true story of the events as they occurred, with exclusive interviews and official documents of these dramatic events. MIA is a must read for anyone who wants to know the complete story behind the most famous haunted house in the world.
