Crazy Rich Asians (Unabridged)

Author: Kevin Kwan
Genre: Fiction
Released: June 11, 2013
℗ © 2013 Random House Audio
Crazy Rich Asians is the outrageously funny debut novel about three super-rich, pedigreed Chinese families and the gossip, backbiting, and scheming that occurs when the heir to one of the most massive fortunes in Asia brings home his ABC (American-born Chinese) girlfriend to the wedding of the season.

When Rachel Chu agrees to spend the summer in Singapore with her boyfriend, Nicholas Young, she envisions a humble family home, long drives to explore the island, and quality time with the man she might one day marry. What she doesn't know is that Nick's family home happens to look like a palace, that she'll ride in more private planes than cars, and that with one of Asia's most eligible bachelors on her arm, Rachel might as well have a target on her back. Initiated into a world of dynastic splendor beyond imagination, Rachel meets Astrid, the It Girl of Singapore society; Eddie, whose family practically lives in the pages of the Hong Kong socialite magazines; and Eleanor, Nick's formidable mother, a woman who has very strong feelings about who her son should--and should not--marry. Uproarious, addictive, and filled with jaw-dropping opulence, Crazy Rich Asians is an insider's look at the Asian JetSet; a perfect depiction of the clash between old money and new money; between Overseas Chinese and Mainland Chinese; and a fabulous novel about what it means to be young, in love, and gloriously, crazily rich.

The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life (Unabridged)

Author: Mark Manson
Genre: Self Development
Released: September 13, 2016
℗ © 2016 HarperAudio
In this generation-defining self-help guide, a superstar blogger cuts through the crap to show us how to stop trying to be positive all the time so that we can truly become better, happier people. 

For decades we've been told that positive thinking is the key to a happy, rich life. "F*ck positivity," Mark Manson says. "Let's be honest, shit is f*cked, and we have to live with it." In his wildly popular Internet blog, Manson doesn't sugarcoat or equivocate. He tells it like it is - a dose of raw, refreshing, honest truth that is sorely lacking today. The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is his antidote to the coddling, let's-all-feel-good mind-set that has infected modern society and spoiled a generation, rewarding them with gold medals just for showing up. 

Manson makes the argument, backed by both academic research and well-timed poop jokes, that improving our lives hinges not on our ability to turn lemons into lemonade but on learning to stomach lemons better. Human beings are flawed and limited - "not everybody can be extraordinary; there are winners and losers in society, and some of it is not fair or your fault". Manson advises us to get to know our limitations and accept them. Once we embrace our fears, faults, and uncertainties, once we stop running and avoiding and start confronting painful truths, we can begin to find the courage, perseverance, honesty, responsibility, curiosity, and forgiveness we seek. 

There are only so many things we can give a f*ck about, so we need to figure out which ones really matter, Manson makes clear. While money is nice, caring about what you do with your life is better, because true wealth is about experience. A much-needed grab-you-by-the-shoulders-and-look-you-in-the-eye moment of real talk, filled with entertaining stories and profane, ruthless humor, The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck is a refreshing slap for a generation to help them lead contented, grounded lives.

Do you feel like a victim of distractions? Do you long for happiness and peace of mind? Are you often stressed out at work or home? If you answered yes, then this audiobook should be your next. It will teach you practical ways of mastering your body, mind, and spirit.

What if I told you that you have ability to perform extraordinary feats that will be considered impossible by others? Sounds too good to be true? Don't underestimate your own powers. The secret to this has actually been uncovered more than 2,000 years ago! Athletes have used it to win Olympic medals, scientists for Nobel Prizes, and monks for achieving Zen-like states. This open secret is the practice of mindfulness.

This audiobook is a modern approach to the ancient art of mindfulness. It has been designed as a practical step-by-step guide for beginners but also has some additional insights for advanced mindfulness meditation practitioners. Here are 10 things you will learn from this audiobook:


What mindfulness is and how it can help you

It will help you control the monkey mind and develop awareness, focus, empathy, and happiness. Among other things, it will teach you:

How to live in the moment: Great accomplishments have been made through the seemingly simple process of living in the present instead of the past or future. It is a state of optimal existence where you channel your undivided attention onto the task at hand.
How to find your focus: Attention is a depleting mental resource. The secret for a laser-sharp focus is to train yourself for selective attention and eliminate distractions.
How to achieve inner peace and happiness: When is the last time you felt truly happy in life? Do you crave fulfillment? Are you tired of looking for external sources for pleasure? With mindfulness, you will achieve lasting happiness.
How to become stress-free and anxiety-free: Are you a sensitive person? Do you experience social anxiety? Letting go of control and micro-management can do wonders for your peace of mind as well as your physical health.

WICKED above her hipbone, GIRL across her heart
Words are like a road map to reporter Camille Preaker's troubled past. Fresh from a brief stay at a psychiatric hospital, Camille's first assignment from the second-rate daily paper where she works brings her reluctantly back to her hometown to cover the murders of two preteen girls.  

NASTY on her kneecap, BABYDOLL on her leg
Since she left town eight years ago, Camille has hardly spoken to her neurotic, hypochondriac mother or to the half-sister she barely knows: a beautiful 13-year-old with an eerie grip on the town. Now, installed again in her family's Victorian mansion, Camille is haunted by the childhood tragedy she has spent her whole life trying to cut from her memory.

HARMFUL on her wrist, WHORE on her ankle
As Camille works to uncover the truth about these violent crimes, she finds herself identifying with the young victims a bit too strongly. Clues keep leading to dead ends, forcing Camille to unravel the psychological puzzle of her own past to get at the story. Dogged by her own demons, she will have to confront what happened to her years before if she wants to survive this homecoming.

With its taut, well-crafted writing, Sharp Objects is addictive, haunting, and unforgettable.
