Seanan McGuire - Minden ​szív kaput nyit
Eleanor ​West otthona csellengő gyerekek számára. Házalók, látogatók, vizsgálók kíméljenek! A gyerekek hajlamosak eltünedezni, ha adja magát a lehetőség. Átlépnek a szekrény hátulján, becsusszannak egy tükörbe, beesnek a nyúl üregébe, vagy egy vén kútba, hogy aztán egy merőben más helyen bukkanjanak elő. De a mágikus vidékek már semmi hasznát nem látják azoknak a gyerekeknek, akikből kifacsarták a csodát. Nancy is utazott egyszer, aztán visszaküldték. Viszont mindaz, amit átélt a túloldalon... az ilyesmi megváltoztatja az embert. A West kisasszony gondjaira bízott gyerekek nagyon is meg tudják érteni. Ugyanis mindnyájan keresik a visszautat saját fantasztikus világukba. Nancy érkezése azonban komoly változást hoz az Otthonba. Valamiféle sötétség ólálkodik a sarkok mögött, és amikor elszabadul a pokol, Nancy és újdonsült iskolatársai lesznek azok, akiknek a rejtély végére kell járnia. Kerül, amibe kerül. „Seanan McGuire már jó ideje a legokosabb írók egyike, ez a kisregény pedig egyértelműen megmutatja, hogy a szíve ugyanolyan hatalmas, mint az agya. Tudjuk, hogy ez a történet nem igaz, de igazságból van szőve.” – Charlaine Harris, a True Blood New York Times-bestseller szerzője „Seanan McGuire Minden szív kaput nyit című kisregénye az egyik legkülönlegesebb történet, amit valaha olvastam!” – V. E. Schwab, az Egy sötétebb mágia New York Times-bestseller szerzője „Seanan McGuire ebben a veszteségről, vágyakozásról és sérült gyermekekről szóló történetben ismét megmutatja, milyen bensőségesen ismeri az emberi szívet.” – Paul Cornell „Annyira agyeldobósan jó, hogy már fáj!” – io9 „A Minden szív kaput nyittal McGuire megteremtette a saját portal fantasy mini-remekművét: egy olyan könyv gyöngyszemet, ami megérdemli a helyet Lewis Carroll és C. S. Lewis klasszikusai mellett, tíz körömmel vájja ki magának.” – NPR

Ismeretlen szerző - Meseország ​mindenkié
A ​tizenhét kortárs szerző friss meseátiratai a különféle marginalizált csoportokhoz tartozó szereplőikkel azokat is megszólítják, akik nehezebben találják a helyüket a világban. Megerősítenek abban, hogy bár nem vagyunk egyformák és különböző utakat járunk be, de ha megérkezünk, a kapu mindannyiunk előtt nyitva áll. „Az ember varázslatos isteni kreatúra, a szivárvány színeinek sokféleségével és a szabadság felelősségével megajándékozva. A legfőbb feladatunk, hogy megtanuljuk elfogadni egymást. Nem lehet elég korán kezdeni a gyakorlását. Erre valók a mesék, gyerekeknek és felnőtteknek.” (Bódis Kriszta, író, pszichológus, dokumentumfilmes) „Ennek a mesekönyvnek minden gyerekszobában ott van a helye, ahol fontos a világ sokszínűségének megértése, ahol a gyerekek körül nincsenek tabuk, s ahova a szülők úgy lépnek be, hogy tudják, a gyerekükön keresztül nemcsak a jövőt formálhatják, hanem a jelent is.” (Gyurkó Szilvia, gyermekjogi szakértő)

This self-portrait was written as a romance... but not every story gets a happy ending. [The Stud is Book Five in a ten book series. You can read this as the mid-point of a four book arc. You should probably read the friends-to-lovers story (contained in the first three books) to understand the fullness of the characters, but this isn't strictly necessary. Book One, Book Four and Book Eight all serve as 'jumping in' points for the series. It's Just Us Here: The Stud is a 118,000 word journey of two men connecting in a deep, spiritual way as they navigate a sexual relationship while juggling careers, friends and family.]

But when a piece is stolen from his art gallery and insurance investigator Jonah Sondern shows up, Vaughn finds himself struggling with that decision. Jonah wants his men like his coffee: hot, intense, and daily. But Vaughn seems to be the one gay guy in Toronto who doesn’t do hookups, which is all Jonah can offer. No way can Jonah give Vaughn what he really wants, not when Jonah barely understands what love is. When another painting goes missing, tension ramps up both on and off the clock.

Because a guy who wants nothing but romance and a guy who wants nothing but sex will never work—right? Not unless they find a way to fill in the spaces between them.
