READING: Two sisters who shared everything. One unforgivable moment. And a second chance…There’s something to talk about in every chapter of Elizabeth Joy Arnold’s poignant, insightful debut novel—the perfect summer read for all those who loved Elisabeth Robinson’s The True and Outstanding Adventures of the Hunt Sisters, Judy Blume’s Summer Sisters, and Jodi Picoult’s My Sister’s Keeper. Once, Kerry and Eve Barnard did everything together: sailing the Block Island harbor with their father, listening to their neighbor Justin’s magical fairy tales, and all the while longing for their absent mother. They were twin girls arm in arm, secrets entwined between two hearts. Until the summer of their seventeenth birthday, when their extraordinary bond was shattered. And thirteen years later, it will take all the courage they can summon to put the pieces back together—at a time when it matters most.… From the Paperback edition.

READING: In one of the many fantastic reviews for Sinéad Moriarty's fourth novel, In My Sister's Shoes, the reviewer praised Sinéad's ability to apply 'the light tender touch to dark, painful subjects'. It's a perfect description of how Sinéad tells the story of a younger sister stepping in to help out when her older sister is diagnosed with cancer. In a similar way to Marian Keyes, Sinéad manages to balance light and dark with wonderful finesse, warmth and humour. Kate O'Brien is thirty and has very little to think about except trying to keep her balance as she totters up London's media-land ladder. Fiona O'Brien is Kate's responsible older sister - with a husband, twin boys, a dog and now ... a life-changing problem. It's a problem that means Kate going back to Dublin. Pronto. There she finds herself stepping into Fiona's shoes - and discovering that she's definitely not cut out to be a domestic goddess. On top of that, the ex she thought she'd got over years ago turns up to haunt her. Will either of the O'Brien sisters survive? And even if they do, can either of them slip back into their old shoes ever again? Sinéad Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK and she is a four times nominee for the popular fiction Irish Book Award. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. In My Sister's Shoes is Sinéad at her very best. Sinéad Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her other titles are: The Baby Trail; A Perfect Match; From Here to Maternity; Keeping It In the Family (also titled Whose Life Is It Anyway?); Pieces of My Heart; Me and My Sisters and This Child of Mine.

READING: Sinéad Moriarty's heart-warming seventh novel, Me and My Sisters, is the story of how three sisters discover that when the chips are down, no-one will be there for you in quite the same way as a sister who knows you better than you know yourself. It mixes the worldly wit of Jane Green with the down-to-earth insight of Marian Keyes in a story that will have readers thinking again about just how important their sisters are to them. Or wishing they had sisters if they don't. There's more than one way of being a modern woman, not that the Devlin sisters would admit it ... Harassed mum Julie used to be the easy-going one, but now she is struggling to keep sane. She needs support, but how could her sisters understand? After all, their lives are perfect. One drunken mistake is jeopardising everything lawyer Louise has worked so hard for. For a control freak like her, being out of control is terrifying. Despite herself, she too needs her sisters. And gorgeous Sophie's perfect designer lifestyle is falling apart at the seams. She can hardly bring herself to tell the other two the trouble she's in. The Devlin sisters think they have little in common. They might just be in for some big surprises ... Sinéad Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK and she is a four times nominee for the popular fiction Irish Book Award. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. Me and My Sisters is Sinéad at her very best.

Unfortunately, in 2002 she experienced the loss of her 3 year old daughter, Ki’Tanna Alaysia Elaine Humphries. She fought the system in an attempt to keep custody of her two other children at that time. Three years after burying her daughter she was sent to prison for 5 years. During her time of incarceration she began to strive to help others by using her experiences of pain, trials, and tribulations. Today she is continuing her education and continuing her fight to help others and improve the lives of those she loves. On June 07, 2012 she was reunited with her oldest son that “people” told her she would never see again. She finds herself relying on several inspirational words and thoughts. She prays that one of these can be an inspiration to someone else. “If you put it out there they can’t use it against you”, “As long as someone else is talking about that means you are important to them.

READING: A laugh-out-loud novel by much-loved author Gretel Killeen When Zeke and Eppie return from outer space stretched long and thin like two pieces of spaghetti, it's only a matter of a very short time before they both get sucked down the bathtub plughole and a new adventure begins. What follows is a giggle-filled, non-stop undersea romp with man-eating seaweed, pirates in petticoats, lost cities, spiral sharks, stolen treasure, killer cordial, secret castles, magic mermaids, splendid speedy sea cyles, barbie bras, invisible enemies, fat fishermen, elastic eels, fairy godfish and supersonic horses and that's all before breakfast!ABOUT THE AUTHORGretel Killeen is well known as a radio and television personality and as a stand-up comedian. Her hilarious articles in various leading Australian newspapers and magazines enjoy an enthusiastic following. She has published an impressive list of best-selling books, including the runaway successes My Life is a Toilet and My Life is a Wedgie and the popular My Sister's series. Her innovative picture books include Cherry Pie and What'll we get for Grandma? Gretel lives in Sydney with her two children Eppie and Zeke. ABOUT THE ILLUSTRATORSHaving practised strenuously at home upon all manner of forbidden surfaces (bedroom walls, their own arms and legs and each others faces), Zeke and Eppie, the hero and heroine of the My Sister series, emerge from the pages to illustrate this tale. While both prefer to draw themselves attractively and illustrate each other as blobs, the contributions of the real life Zeke and Eppie have intriguingly added a new dimension to the My Sister series as the lines between reality, imagination, character and fiction blur.

READING: Bryan Cranston, de man die beroemd werd als Walter White uit Breaking Bad, speelde zijn eerste rol als zevenjarige in een reclamespot. Met zijn oudere broer speelde hij hele scènes na uit films die ze in de plaatselijke bioscoop zagen. Tot zijn vader spoorloos verdween. Acteren werd aan de kant geschoven, misschien in een onbewuste poging om los te komen van zijn afwezige vader. Hij werd politieagent. Tot hij op een dag, tijdens een roadtrip, het licht zag en oog in oog stond met zijn authentieke roeping. Acteren: dat was wat hij met zijn leven wilde doen. Met veel humor en een bijzondere nederigheid is Cranston de chroniqueur van zijn onwaarschijnlijke opgang van soapacteur tot wereldster. Geen onderwerp gaat hij uit de weg, zoals weinigen dat durven. Cranston heeft veel te zeggen over aangeboren talent, over de voordelen, de nadelen en het onderhoud ervan. Uiteindelijk gaat Een leven in stukken over de noodzaak en de kracht van hard werken.

READING: Sinéad Moriarty's sixth novel, Pieces of My Heart, is a serious look at a dreadful disease, but it's never a downer because it's filled with Sinéad's trademark warmth, humour and compassion. With her thoughtful and insightful analysis of what anorexia can do to a family, Sinéad brings to Pieces of My Heart many of the qualities of a Jodi Picoult novel, while still managing to balance the darkness with a lightness of touch that compares with the writing of Marian Keyes. Ava is juggling a life that seems to have too many pieces. First, there are her chalk-and-cheese daughters, Alison the angel and Sarah the tearaway. Then there's husband Paul. Unfortunately, he seems more interested in work than home - which might explain why her sex life is practically on life support. That certainly can't be said about her Viagra-popping Dad, a loveable rogue who is determined to grow old disgracefully. She would envy her best friend Sally, sassy single singleton-about-town, if she didn't know that behind her polished exterior Sally is as vulnerable as a kitten. Somewhere in there is Ava herself, trying to do her best for all of them but lately feeling like she's running on empty. But that's before she notices Alison is in deep trouble. Now she knows there's no such thing as empty - not if she is to hold on to the most precious pieces of her heart ... Sinéad Moriarty's novels have sold over half a million copies in Ireland and the UK and she is a four times nominee for the popular fiction Irish Book Award. She has won over readers and critics telling stories that are funny, humane, moving and relevant to modern women. Pieces of My Heart is Sinéad at her very best. Sinéad Moriarty lives with her family in Dublin. Her other titles are: The Baby Trail; A Perfect Match; From Here to Maternity; In My Sister's Shoes; Keeping It In the Family (also titled Whose Life is it Anyway?), Me and My Sisters and This Child of Mine.
