Gwen Ifill in the Washington Post says that "at its heart, it is a revenge memoir."
CELEBRITY SELF HELP
Janet Jackson's book is all about self esteem (and diet). JWoww, of "Jersey Shore" [in]fame[y] gives us her rules. I think the subtitle probably says it all, but I'm not sure because, although I understand the words they don't actually make any sense to me: Shore-Tested Secrets on Landing a Mint Guy, Staying Fresh to Death, and Kicking the Competition to the Curb.
Both Alex Berenson's Secret Soldier and Noah Boyd's Agent X are spy thrillers. A Red Herring Without Mustard is the third mystery by Alan Bradley featuring precocious pre-teen chemist and wannabe poisoner Flavia de Luce. The first two were certainly delightful. And finally, A Discovery of Witches, to which EW assigned a grade of B+ and said, "By the most satisfying end, Harkness had made me a believer." Yup, looks juicy to me.
