Chuck Palahniuk - Harcosok ​klubja
Szombat ​esténként névtelen átlagemberek, autószerelők, felszolgálók, irodai alkalmazottak gyűlnek össze egy külvárosi bárban, hogy záróra után az alagsor betonpadlóján könyörtelen ökölharcokat vívjanak egymással. A harcosok nem kötnek fogadásokat, nem hirdetnek győzteseket; a küzdelmek egyetlen célja, hogy visszanyerjék önbizalmukat, a hitet, hogy saját kezűleg irányíthatják a sorsukat. A zártkörű klub megalapítója és teljhatalmú vezére Tyler Durden, mozigépész, szappanügynök és anarchista messiás egy személyben, aki semmitől sem riad vissza, hogy fanatizálja az embereit. A klubtagok lassan tehetetlen bábokká válnak Durden ördögi játszmájában: egyre véresebb összecsapások követik egymást, míg egyikük megsejti a klub valódi célját. De lehet, hogy már túl késő... Chuck Palahniuk kultikus regényéből napjaink egyik legeredetibb amerikai rendezője, David Fincher (Hetedik, Játszma) készített lélegzetelállítóan fordulatos, lenyűgöző látványvilágú filmet, Edward Norton, Helena Bonham Carter, Meat Loaf és a Tyler Durdent alakító Brad Pitt főszereplésével.

Chuck Palahniuk - Fight ​Club
Every ​weekend, in basements and parking lots across the country, young men with good white-collar jobs and absent fathers take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded for as long as they have to. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth and the sense that they can handle anything. Fight Club is the invention of Tyler Durden, projectionist, waiter and dark, anarchic genius. And it's only the beginning of his plans for revenge on a world where cancer support groups have the corner on human warmth.

Samantha Young - On ​Hart’s Boardwalk
One ​of New York Times bestselling author Samantha Young’s most beloved couples returns for the first time in a brand new novella set ten years after her blockbuster bestseller Before Jamaica Lane… Nate and Liv have a great life together but they miss the spontaneity and freedom they enjoyed early on in their romance. Careers and their children have inevitably kept them busy, so when Nate discovers Liv is feeling disconnected from him, he plans an anniversary trip to the idyllic seaside town of Hartwell, Delaware. There he hopes they will have the opportunity they’ve been craving—a chance to reinvent themselves and fall in love all over again. With each new day comes a new adventure, from wedding crashing at the five-star boardwalk hotel to pretending they are two strangers having a chance encounter at the boardwalk bar. In the midst of this daring, sexually charged game of romantic rediscovery, Nate and Liv discover the only constant they need is each other.

Cristina Henriquez - The ​Book of Unknown Americans
After ​their daughter Maribel suffers a near-fatal accident, the Riveras leave México and come to America. But upon settling at Redwood Apartments, a two-story cinderblock complex just off a highway in Delaware, they discover that Maribel's recovery - the piece of the American Dream on which they've pinned all their hopes - will not be easy. Every task seems to confront them with language, racial, and cultural obstacles. At Redwood also lives Mayor Toro, a high school sophomore whose family arrived from Panamà fifteen years ago. Mayor sees in Maribel something others do not: that beyond her lovely face, and beneath the damage she's sustained, is a gentle, funny, and wise spirit. But as the two grow closer, violence casts a shadow over all their futures in America. Peopled with deeply sympathetic characters, this poignant yet unsentimental tale of young love tells a riveting story of unflinching honesty and humanity that offers a resonant new definition of what it means to be an American.
