Addict Chick: Sex, Drugs & Rock ´N´ Roll is brutally honest, sexually graphic, and completely real. At 34, Amanda Meredith had it all - A successful career, a home, a child, and everything that should have made her happy. She was also crazy in love; his name was Cage, and their love would become her first addiction - but not her last. Some would say that love destroyed her, but what she let ravage her mind, body, and soul had nothing to do with love and everything to do with a deep-seated need to destroy herself. With the prick of a needle, and a shot of methamphetamine, she lost everything- her child, her career, and she lost Cage. Homeless and alone on the streets of Dallas she became a statistic. A broken nobody that had hit the gutter and licked it. Her story is not for the faint of heart. Addict Chick: Sex, Drugs & Rock ´N´ Roll is her heartbreak, her sorrow, and the story of how she fought like hell to save herself, with a little help from the man above. In this memoir, one woman proves that no matter who you are, and no matter how far you have fallen, nobody is beyond redemption. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Stephanie Rose.

Evil has returned to the Buckley farm.... It starts with a dream, a warning. But it´s a warning that arrives too late. The Gypsies aren´t coming; they´re here. His grandmother and nephew are the first to fall to the demonic invaders, leaving Mitch, his grandfather, and his uncle trapped in the barn while occult madness reigns outside. Chaos is the order of the day, and Mitch can only try to cope with the ghostly paranormal attackers. His grandfather, however, remembers the bloody day that first brought the wicked Gypsies to Earth.... June 15, 1961, on an army base in Kentucky, Private Noel Buckley and his platoon, which included a young man named James Marshall Hendrix, were attacked by unseen forces that possessed them to perform wicked, unspeakably heinous acts - what happened to that platoon is still being covered up by the military. But also present that day was another mysterious, magical presence that transformed the very souls of the survivors.... Several years later Hendrix tried to recapture some of that magic, what he referred to as the Electric Lady, through his music but succeeded only in waking the demons once more, so he hid the master tapes.... Now, on the Buckley farm outside of Green River, Michigan, the Gypsies have come to reclaim the Lady no matter who they have to slaughter to do it. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Quintin W Allen.

Travel back in time to 1957 for a little drama, a few life-or-death moments, and a lot of rock ´n´ roll romance in the young-adult time-travel romance Wishing You Were Here. Ambitious music fanatic Callie Reinard is headed to college with plans to run her own radio station one day. Her younger sister thinks Callie´s been focusing so much on grand plans for the future that she´s not living in the present. When an accidental wish sends Callie back to 1957 to save music sensation Joey Tempo from an untimely death, her sister´s criticism proves true. Callie finds herself planless, floundering in a situation for which she´s had no preparation. Hard as she tries to fit in, her modern way of thinking causes nothing but trouble for her and everyone around her, including that charismatic singer she saved from death. He may be her age, but he´s five decades out of her league and already engaged to a stunning, sophisticated beauty queen--someone much more comfortable with life in 1957 than Callie will ever be. So what´s a girl to do? Follow her heart or follow her plans and dreams? Either way Callie´s in for a change. Either she needs to change her dreams for the future or change her mind about what her heart wants because getting out of 1957 isn´t as easy as getting in was. At least not without losing the one thing she never knew was missing: her soul mate. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Samantha Goldman.

No one could have imagined Odd Thomas ever leaving the perfect, quirky comfort of Pico Mundo, least of all Odd himself. The little desert town that nurtured Odd all his life is the locus of everything he holds dear: his loyal friends, his ghostly confidants, and the place where he loved and lost his soul mate, the irreplaceable Stormy Llewellyn. Yet leave it he has, to embrace the solitude and peace of an isolated monastery high in the western mountains as he tries to find a way to live fully again. But Odd has a knack for finding himself in the path of trouble no matter where he goes — even among the eccentric monks in their sanctuary and with his steady spirit companion, the King of Rock ´n´ Roll, at his side. For a killer is stalking the ancient holy halls, and Odd is about to meet an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered. 1. Language: English. Narrator: David Aaron Baker.

The Beatles´ Second Album runs only 22 minutes, with just 11 songs - many of which the group didn´t write. Despite all that, the album personifies the Beatles: the world´s greatest rock´n´roll band, according to well-known rock´n´roll critic and author Dave Marsh. With its overload of rock´n´roll, R&B, and early soul influence, including ´´Roll Over Beethoven,´´ and ´´Long Tall Sally´´, The Beatles´ Second Album - the audiobook and the album - offers a great vantage point from which to see the group´s enormous impact on pop music and culture. Marsh breaks new ground by focusing on the Beatles´ US recordings and how they evolved from British releases at a time when the two nations´ approaches to rock´n´roll production were vastly different. 1.

This intimate story of Lynyrd Skynyrd tells how a band of lost souls and self-destructive misfits, with uncertain artistic objectives, clawed their way to the top of the rock ´n´ roll world. Based on interviews with surviving band members, Whiskey Bottles and Brand-New Cars shares how lead singer and front man Ronnie Van Zant guided the band´s hugely successful five-year run and, in the process, created not only a new country rock idiom, but a new Confederacy in constant conflict with old Southern totems and prejudices. Placing the music and personae of Skynyrd into a broad cultural context, this book gives a new perspective to a history of stage fights, motel room destructions, cunning business deals, and brilliant studio productions. It also offers a greater appreciation for a band whose legacy, in the aftermath of their last plane ride, has since descended into self-caricature. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Jeremy Arthur.

The dead don´t talk. I don´t know why. But they do try to communicate, with a short-order cook in a small desert town serving as their reluctant confidant. Odd Thomas thinks of himself as an ordinary guy, if possessed of a certain measure of talent at the Pico Mundo Grill and rapturously in love with the most beautiful girl in the world, Stormy Llewellyn. Maybe he has a gift, maybe it´s a curse, Odd has never been sure, but he tries to do his best by the silent souls who seek him out. Sometimes they want justice, and Odd´s otherworldly tips to Pico Mundo´s sympathetic police chief, Wyatt Porter, can solve a crime. Occasionally they can prevent one. But this time it´s different. A mysterious man comes to town with a voracious appetite, a filing cabinet stuffed with information on the world´s worst killers, and a pack of hyena-like shades following him wherever he goes. Who the man is and what he wants, not even Odd´s deceased informants can tell him. His most ominous clue is a page ripped from a day-by-day calendar for August 15. Today is August 14. In less than twenty-four hours, Pico Mundo will awaken to a day of catastrophe. As evil coils under the searing desert sun, Odd travels through the shifting prisms of his world, struggling to avert a looming cataclysm with the aid of his soul mate and an unlikely community of allies that includes the King of Rock ´n´ Roll. His account of two shattering days when past and present, fate and destiny converge is the stuff of our worst nightmares, and a testament by which to live: sanely if not safely, with courage, humor, and a full heart that even in the darkness must persevere. 1.
