Jamie McGuire - Véletlen ​szerelem
Jamie ​McGuire egy letehetetlen YA regénnyel tér vissza, melynek főszereplője Erin Easter, a három végzős Erin nevű kishölgy egyike, akik a vidéki Blackwell Középiskolába járnak, és nem csupán nevükön, de születésnapjukon is osztoznak. Eastert felelőtlen, egyedülálló édesanyja nevelte fel, és plátói szerelmet táplál Weston Gates iránt. A két másik Erin, Erin „Alder" Alderman és Erin „Sonny" Masterson a közösség kedvencei: a város két leggazdagabb családjának sarjai, legjobb barátnők, szurkolólányok, és minden megvan nekik, ami Erinnek nincs. Ezt mások is tudják, és nem hagyják feledésbe merülni. Alder is már a nyolcadik osztály óta kinézte magának Westont, Easter szívének vágyát. Weston egy közkedvelt sztáratléta, két kiemelkedő ügyvéd gyermeke. Nap mint nap küzd az elvárásokkal, amiknek meg kell felelnie, ha fel akar érni családja nevéhez, titokban pedig együtt érez Easterrel, hiszen ő is úgy érzi, máshova tartozik; egy másik életben. Ahogyan elkezd kiszökni esténként, hogy Easterrel lehessen, úgy nő meg bátorsága, ellenáll az elvárásoknak és beismeri érzéseit… Ezt mind a saját, mind Easter jövőjéért teszi.

John Grisham - Az ​ártatlan ember
1982. ​december 7-én éjszaka megerőszakolnak és bestiálisan meggyilkolnak egy fiatal lányt az oklahomai Ada városkában. Több mint négy évvel később a helyi rendőrség letartóztatja Ron Williamsont, a szépreményű baseballjátékost, és a megyei bíróság 1988 áprilisában halálra ítéli. 1994 szeptemberében, öt nappal a kivégzés tervezett időpontja előtt egy szövetségi bíró - meggyőződve a rendőrségi és bírósági eljárás elképesztő hibáiról - az ügy újratárgyalását rendeli el. És ezzel elkezdődik a hátborzongató játszma: életre-halálra... John Grisham az igazságügyi thriller nagymestereként az egész világon rendkívül népszerű. Valamennyi regénye a bestseller listák vezetője.

John Grisham - The ​Innocent Man
When ​John Grisham read the obituary of Ronald Williamson in early 2004, he realized he had come across a story even more riveting than those he had turned into 18 global bestsellers with worldwide sales of 200 million copies. It was a story of failed dreams, madness, rape and murder, a botched trial, a wrongful death sentence and a twelve-year fight to win justice. Ronald Williamson was a local hero in his home town of Ada, Oklahoma. A fabulously talented baseball player, he excelled at college and was set to become a national sports star when injury wrecked his career. Mental illness and alcoholism followed his return to Ada, a burned-out shell of a man. While in prison serving a short sentence for a petty felony, a fellow prisoner alleged that he had heard Williamson confess to the unsolved rape and murder of a local bar girl.Denied drugs for his psychiatric problems, given a blind attorney who had never defended a criminal case, Williamson stood no chance and was sentenced to death. One of the greatest mistrials in American judicial history became one of the greatest fights for justice of any convicted man. Five days before his execution, Williamson was given a stay and shortly after completely pardoned.John Grisham has been consumed by Williamson's story, researching every detail of the nerve jangling drama of the trial and deathwatch. A court room drama and a race against time, John Grisham's first work of non-fiction is as compelling as any of his novels and will be compared to Truman Capote's IN Cold Blood.

S. E. Hinton - The ​Outsiders
According ​to Ponyboy, there are two kinds of people in the world: greasers and socs. A soc (short for "social") has money, can get away with just about anything, and has an attitude longer than a limousine. A greaser, on the other hand, always lives on the outside and needs to watch his back. Ponyboy is a greaser, and he's always been proud of it, even willing to rumble against a gang of socs for the sake of his fellow greasers--until one terrible night when his friend Johnny kills a soc. The murder gets under Ponyboy's skin, causing his bifurcated world to crumble and teaching him that pain feels the same whether a soc or a greaser.

Ree Drummond - The ​Pioneer Woman
"That's ​when I saw him—the cowboy—across the smoky room." I'll never forget that night. It was like a romance novel, an old Broadway musical, and a John Wayne western rolled into one. Out for a quick drink with friends, I wasn't looking to meet anyone, let alone a tall, rugged cowboy who lived on a cattle ranch miles away from my cultured, corporate hometown. But before I knew it, I'd been struck with a lightning bolt . . . and I was completely powerless to stop it. Read along as I recount the rip-roaring details of my unlikely romance with a chaps-wearing cowboy, from the early days of our courtship (complete with cows, horses, prairie fire, and passion) all the way through the first year of our marriage, which would be filled with more challenge and strife—and manure—than I ever could have expected. This isn't just my love story; it's a universal tale of passion, romance, and all-encompassing love that sweeps us off our feet. It's the story of a cowboy. And Wranglers. And chaps. And the girl who fell in love with them.

Jamie McGuire - Happenstance
#1 ​New York Times Bestseller Jamie McGuire returns to self-publishing with this page-turning YA account of Erin Easter, one of three Erins in the small senior class of rural Blackwell High School who not only share a first name, but also their birthday. Erin Easter, raised by a neglectful single mom, keeps to herself and admires Weston Gates from afar. The other Erins, Erin A. and Erin M. are the darlings of the community: daughters of the two wealthiest families in town, best friends, cheerleaders, and everything Erin Easter isn't--and they never let her forget it. Erin A. has even claimed Weston since the 8th grade. Weston is a well-liked star athlete, and the son of two prominent attorneys. He struggles daily with the pressures of living up to his family name and secretly empathizes with Erin Easter's feeling that she belongs somewhere else; in a different life. Not until he begins sneaking nights out with Erin does he gain the courage to buck expectations and acknowledge his feelings ... both for his future, and for her. But when a shocking tragedy rocks the tiny town, Erin's life is turned upside down in the best way possible. But when the truth is revealed and everything Erin thinks she wanted falls into her lap, life only becomes more complicated.
