Hot Mess [n.] - someone who is often in a state of disarray while remaining attractive in spite of their flaws and repeatedly finds themselves in uncomfortable predicaments. Ellie Knight is just like you. Her life isn´t turning out the way she thought it would. Some people might say she´s a hot mess, but then who really has their s--t together before they´re 30? It´s Valentine´s Day, and Ellie Knight finds herself eating Nutella in the bar stock after a no-show date. But single doesn´t have to be the loneliest number, does it? She goes back home to her flatshare and weird flatmates. It´s okay there´s black mould everywhere, right? With a hangover from hell, she goes to the office job she thought she would have quit by now. Doesn´t everyone hate their job? Maybe Ellie isn´t following the official life plan, but perfect is overrated. For fans of Fleabag and Girls, this is a fresh and funny coming-of-age story with a single-girl heroine that everyone will relate to - a modern Carrie Bradshaw meets Bridget Jones.

Hot Mess´´ - en, der er tiltrækkende, men ikke har styr på en skid. Er du nogensinde dukket op til brunch søndag morgen, stadig med lugten af lørdag nat hængende i dit hår? Valgt din seng, Netflix og pizza i stedet for menneskelig kontakt? Været den, der kunne underholde dine venner med fortællinger om Tinderdates fra helvede? Så mød 29-årige Ellie Knight. Hendes liv er ikke blevet, helt som hun havde forestillet sig. Hun hader sit job, hendes venner har pludselig travlt med at blive gift og få børn, og hendes roomies er rent ud sagt bizarre. Men hvem har egentlig styr på sit liv, når alt kommer til alt? ´´Hot Mess´´ er blevet kaldt Bridget Jones for Tinder-generationen. En livsbekræftende og latterfremkaldende roman om at overleve dates fra helvede, chefer fra ditto og de kvælende forventninger fra venner, familie og omverdenen om, at man ikke kan være lykkelig uden en bedre halvdel. Om at finde sin egen vej gennem tilværelsens labyrint - og at det er helt okay ikke at have styr på det hele! 1. Danish.

Random House presents the audiobook edition of Another Fine Mess, written and read by Tim Moore. Lacking even the most basic mechanical knowhow, Tim Moore sets out to cross Trumpland USA in an original Model T Ford. Armed only with a fan belt made of cotton, wooden wheels and a trunkload of ‘wise-ass Limey liberal gumption’, his route takes him exclusively through Donald-voting counties, meeting the everyday folks who voted red along the way.He meets a people defined by extraordinary generosity, willing to shift heaven and earth to keep him on the road. And yet, this is clearly a nation in conflict with itself: citizens ‘tooling up’ in reaction to ever-increasing security fears; a health-care system creaking to support sugar-loaded soda lovers; a disintegrating rust belt all but forgotten by the warring media and political classes.With his trademark blend of slapstick humour, affable insight and butt-clenching peril, Tim Moore invites us on an unforgettable road trip through Trump’s America. Buckle up! 1. Language: English. Narrator: Tim Moore. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/rhuk/003975/bk_rhuk_003975_sample.mp3. Digital audiobook in aax.
Twenty-something Allie Simon is used to playing by the rules - until Chicago´s most sought-after, up-and-coming culinary genius, Benji Zane, walks into her world and pulls her into his. The only thing more renowned than Benji´s mouthwatering masterpieces and equally luscious good looks? His struggle with addiction and his reckless tendency to live life on the edge, no matter the havoc he wreaks along the way. But loving someone means supporting him no matter what, or so Allie tells herself. That´s why, when Benji´s offered the chance to light up foodie hot spot Randolph Street with a high-profile new restaurant, Allie takes the ultimate risk and invests her life savings in his dream. Then one day, Benji disappears, relapsing to a place where Allie can´t reach him. Left with nothing but a massive withdrawal slip and a restaurant that absolutely must open in a matter of weeks, Allie finds herself thrust into a world of luxury and greed, cutthroat business and sensory delight. Lost in the mess of it all, she can either crumble completely or fight like hell for the life she wants and the love she deserves. With razor-sharp wit and searing insight, Emily Belden serves up a deliciously dishy look behind the kitchen doors of a hot foodie town, perfect for fans of Sweetbitter and The Devil Wears Prada. 1.

Maryland, USA. Mavis, diciotto anni, viene rinchiusa in riformatorio, accusata di aggressione. È internata nell´ala Nord della struttura, dove sono reclusi i ragazzi condannati per reati minori. Indossano delle tute verdi, unico colore in un mare di bianco, così monotono da stordirla. Anche a Mavis ne viene fatta indossare una, e le vengono illustrate le regole del luogo. La prima è ´´non avvicinarsi alla stanza 105´´. Diversa dalle altre, in quella cella è rinchiuso un ragazzo di cui nessuno sembra voler parlare. Mavis sa solo che indossa una tuta arancione e che non dovrebbe trovarsi lì, bensì nell´ala Est, riservata a chi ha commesso crimini gravi. Il suo nome non viene mai pronunciato, gli altri ragazzi si limitano a chiamarlo 105, sussurrando piano. Da subito incuriosita, Mavis infrange la prima regola, facendo di tutto per entrare in contatto con lui. Poco alla volta riesce ad avvicinarsi, a scoprire il suo nome, Niall, e a violare il suo silenzio impenetrabile. Fra Mavis e Niall nasce un rapporto sincero, empatico, che se da una parte darà a Mavis la forza di non crollare, dall´altra la travolgerà, preda di sentimenti prima sconosciuti in nome dei quali metterà a rischio la sua stessa vita...

In Gracely, Colorado, it´s all about the climb - into the rugged Rocky Mountains, and over the obstacles that life has thrown in your way. With the right partner, the view from the top is grand. Sam Goodall knows how to hide. And in the years since his sister´s death, he´s done just that, burying himself in his work at the Evans brothers´ Mile High Adventures as a backpacking guide. Clients don´t mind his strong, silent demeanor, and he´s happy to leave the rest of the world behind when he´s hiking, or holed up in the off-grid cabin he calls home. But he owes his life - what there is of it - to the Evans boys, and when they ask for a favor, he can´t refuse. Hayley Winthrop is looking for something she´s never had - a true sense of family, and a purpose. Finding her half-brothers was the first step - discovering where she belongs in the world is the next. Could it be in the fresh air of small-town Gracely? With hunky Sam agreeing to train her as an outdoors guide, she´s torn between exploring her newfound skills and getting closer to him. But chipping away at the walls around Sam could take a lifetime. Sam is stuck in the past, and Hayley is looking toward her future - they´re a mismatched pair from the start. But the connection between them right now is too good to let go. 1. Language: English.
