This book was given a five-star review from Readers' Favorites and won two awards from the Florida Authors and Publishers Association. Angelina Assanti is at it again.

From radical surgery to chemo and radiation, she's been through it all. Determined to laugh in the face of danger, she reveals the difficulties that cancer patients face when it comes to friends, families, co-workers and treatment. This book is a must-read for anyone touched by this life-changing diagnosis.
Charlotte Brontë found in her illnesses, real and imagined, an escape from familial and social duties, and the perfect conditions for writing. The German jurist Daniel Paul Schreber believed his body was being colonized and transformed at the hands of God and doctors alike. Andy Warhol was terrified by disease and by the idea of disease. Glenn Gould claimed a friendly pat on his shoulder had destroyed his ability to play piano. And we all know someone who has trawled the Internet in solitude, seeking to pinpoint the source of his or her fantastical symptoms. The Hypochondriacs is a book about fear and hope, illness and imagination, despair and creativity. It explores, in the stories of nine individuals, the relationship between mind and body as it is mediated by the experience, or simply the terror, of being ill. And, in an intimate investigation of those lives, it shows how the mind can make a prison of the body by distorting our sense of ourselves as physical beings. Through witty, entertaining, and often moving examinations of the lives of these eminent hypochondriacs—James Boswell, Charlotte Brontë, Charles Darwin, Florence Nightingale, Alice James, Daniel Paul Schreber, Marcel Proust, Glenn Gould, and Andy Warhol—Brian Dillon brilliantly unravels the tortuous connections between real and imagined illness, irrational fear and rational concern, the mind's aches and the body's ideas.

Megan Pagano lands her dream job and dream man and then a tragic accident turns her world upside down. She inherits more money than she could ever spend and then she loses control. She can hardly keep up with her fast-paced lifestyle of drinking, empty relationships and foreign cars. She can't understand why being rich isn't making her happy. Then, a brush with death and a chance encounter make her decide to leave her lifestyle behind and seek something more. Just when she thinks she has her life in control again, she crosses paths with a movie star that may influence her to go back to her old, wild ways. Told from the first person point of view, Megan lets you know exactly what she's thinking all the time. You see her struggle with the person she used to be and the person she wants to be. This is a love story about a confused young woman who is trying to deal with death, money and lust. And, all she wants to do is fall in love! This story is humorous and will be enjoyed by men as well as women. It has some adult humor and adult references.This is a love story that is very unique from other stories. It is a roller-coaster of a read. The story is funny and there are complications that make it funnier. The main character has a secret and it takes the arrival of a movie star to make it come to light but then the comedy ensues. The male lead has a spin-off book called, "Mark Taylor's Checkered Past" which is also a comedy and gets more detailed about Mark's alcoholism. Neither of these stories are dark comedies, they are filled with humor and light-heartedness even though they deal with serious subject matter. There are many pop-culture references and nods to the '80s. Although, people in every generation can relate to the story line. It has been selling well from teenagers all the way to senior citizens. Because of the way the story is written, it isn't anything that would make an older person blush. It is funny and relatively clean, despite the subject matter.
Every two minutes someone in the UK is diagnosed with cancer. Lucy O'Donnell was one herself three years ago. Cancer is My Teacher is her story, describing unflinchingly how she has turned the disease into a positive experience - and how you can do the same. Lucy's approach is determined but disciplined, clinical but also holistic. By addressing the physical, emotional, and spiritual aspects of cancer, Lucy covers the whole spectrum of the disease - including how to tell the family, the dos and donts of communicating with a patient, the side-effects of radiotherapy and chemotherapy - and gives practical advice on how to keep looking your best and even what to pack for surgery. Cancer is My Teacher offers guidance for anyone in the early stages of diagnosis, in treatment or trying to readjust afterwards. It also helps family and loved ones to understand what they're going through - and, above all, carries a message of hope for everyone touched by cancer.
Leigh Fielding wants a life. Seriously. Having spent the past five years on dialysis, she has one simple wish: to make it to her thirtieth birthday. Now, thanks to the generosity of the late Larry Resnick and his transplanted kidney, it looks like her wish may come true. With her newfound vitality (and Larry’s kidney) in tow, Leigh hits the road for an excursion that will carry her from Wisconsin to California, with a few stops in between: Mount Rushmore, the Badlands, the Rockies, Las Vegas–and a memorable visit to thank Larry’s family for the second chance. Yet Leigh’s itinerary takes a sudden detour when she picks up a seventeen-year-old hitchhiker, Denise, a runaway with a bunch of stories and a couple of secrets. Add a long-lost mother, a loaded gun, an RV full of swingers, and Hall and Oates’s Greatest Hits to the mix, and Driving Sideways becomes a hilarious and original journey of friendship, hope, and discovery. Praise for Driving Sideways: “Driving Sideways is a gorgeous novel . . . hugely entertaining and very touching. Jess Riley’s voice is irreverent and wonderful, and her writing is genius.” –Marian Keyes, author of Anybody Out There? "A hopeful and hilarious debut ... Jess Riley may well be my new favorite author." –Jen Lancaster, author of Bitter is the New Black “Brilliant . . . Jess Riley proves herself a huge new talent.” –Kristy Kiernan, author of Catching Genius From the Trade Paperback edition.
For fans of Louise Rennison, Sarah Mlynowski, and Stephanie Perkins comes a laugh-out-loud, bittersweet debut full of wit, wisdom, heart, and a hilarious, unforgettable heroine. It's kind of crazy how you can pay so much attention to yourself and still not see a thing. Izzy is a hypochondriac with enormous boobs that won't stop growing, a mother with a rare disease who's hiding something, a best friend who appears to have undergone a personality transplant, and a date with an out-of-her-league athlete who just spilled Gatorade all over her. Yes, Izzy Skymen has a hectic life. But what Izzy doesn't realize is that these are only minor symptoms of life's insanity. When she discovers that the people she trusts most are withholding from her the biggest secrets, things are about to get epic -- or is it epidemic?
