big little lies – Liane Moriaty
A murder…A tragic accident…Or just parents behaving badly? What’s indisputable is that someone is dead.
Madeline is a force to be reckoned with. She’s funny, biting, and passionate; she remembers everything and forgives no one.

New to town, single mom Jane is so young that another mother mistakes her for a nanny. She comes with a mysterious past and a sadness beyond her years. These three women are at different crossroads, but they will all wind up in the same shocking place. Q (Werbung)

Antoni in the kitchen
Antoni Porowski, the food and wine guru on Netflix’s sensation Queer Eye, meets people where they live—literally. With appealing vulnerability, he shows cooks of all levels how to become more confident and casual in the kitchen. The verve and naturalness of his approach earned raves from Food & Wine and Bon Appétit to GQ and the New York Times, which noted his dishes prove that “sometimes simple is anything but simplistic.”
Vier neue und noch dazu englische Bücher sind des Weiteren bei mir eingezogen im September, drei von ihnen standen bereits länger auf meiner Wunschliste, das dritte hier aufgeführte ist sehr spontan in London dazu gekommen, aber ich denke nicht, dass ich den Kauf bereuen würde. Am meisten freue ich mich jedoch darüber, eine signierte Ausgabe von Antoni in the Kitchen in London ergattert zu haben!
