Sookie Stackhouse is a small-time cocktail waitress in small-town Louisiana. She's quiet, keeps to herself, and doesn't get out much - not because she's not pretty - she's a very cute bubbly blonde - or not interested in a social life. She really is . . . but Sookie's got a bit of a disability. She can read minds.

With a blend of witty confessions and unscientific observations, Mindy writes about everything from being a timid young chubster afraid of her own bike to living the Hollywood life, dating, friendships, and planning her own funeral - all executed with several conveniently placed stopping points for you to run errands and make phone calls.

I loved how the book was written. the Author didn't just write about her experiences in the different countries she visited on the different continents. There was a back story and a beautiful self discovery as she found herself at the end.

If you can't take the heat, stay out of the kitchen! In this case, the kitchen is the "judgment free" stage of the Allen Theater in Cleveland, where funnyman Kevin Hart mixes his sassy charm with several dashes of brutal honestly in his latest album, Kevin Hart: Seriously Funny.

Mikey's family were Gypsies. They live in a closed community and little is known about their way of life. As he didn't go to school, the caravan became his world. But although Mikey inherited a vibrant culture, his family had a dark hidden history. Eventually Mikey was forced to make a decision – to stay and keep secrets, or escape and find somewhere to belong.
