“Ugyanis a felborulás pillanatában ez a könyv előreesett, és a kis ülésen kuporgó lakáj nyomban utánakapott, mert felelősséget vállalt a féltett, kézzel írott könyvért.”

Ismeretlen szerző - All ​Out
Take ​a journey through time and genres and discover a past where queer figures live, love and shape the world around them. Seventeen of the best young adult authors across the queer spectrum have come together to create a collection of beautifully written diverse historical fiction for teens. From a retelling of Little Red Riding Hood set in war-torn 1870s Mexico featuring a transgender soldier, to two girls falling in love while mourning the death of Kurt Cobain, forbidden love in a sixteenth-century Spanish convent or an asexual girl discovering her identity amid the 1970s roller-disco scene, All Out tells a diverse range of stories across cultures, time periods and identities, shedding light on an area of history often ignored or forgotten.

Pippa DaCosta - City ​of Shadows
Alina ​knows she is not real – the fae queen spun an evil web to create her – but she wants more than to spend her days feeding off humans’ energy to survive. She isn’t content to lose herself in the dangerously attractive Reign. She wants a life of her own making. Desperate to help the man who saved her life, Alina vows to find his missing sister. Alina is convinced that the general of the Fae Authority plays a part in her disappearance. She infiltrates the organisation and gets close to their strongest fighter. But while Samuel’s tormented soul and masterful touch stirs in Alina a feeling of being human again, her loyalty to Reign makes her Samuel’s enemy. Who should she trust? This New Adult urban fantasy is packed with action and suspense and will have you yearning for more forbidden fae romance.

Andrea Carlisle - The ​Riverhouse Stories
As ​the introduction attests, The Riverhouse Stories was one of those books that had a hard time finding a publisher. And it is a difficult book to categorize. The stories are short (a few pages at most), and at first glance, incredibly simple. There is Lazy LaRue, contemplating a difficult cat, and Pubah S. Queen, determined to organize her life. There are stories on feeding ducks, seeing rainbows, and visiting friends. While the subject matter changes, the feeling does not: all are fanciful, glowing, thoughtful - childlike in the best meaning of the term. If you are one of those people who thinks the world needs to be saved by something more practical than love, you might be inclined to dismiss this book. But give yourself a chance. Enter Lazy and Pubah's houseboat where all dreams are listened to and life is often composed of simple issues. Wonder at Pubah, female electrician in a male-dominated profession, a woman with ever so much to do. Smile at Lazy, who writes and thinks wide thoughts and finally decides to write about the woman she loves. And wait, as their whimsical, beautiful life sneaks into yours

Agatha Christie - Hercule ​Poirots grösste Trümpfe
Hercule ​Poirot schiesst nicht und schlägt nicht, wenn er den gefährlichen Ganoven auf den Leib rückt. Was die Unterwelt, die kleinen und grossen Verbrecher, an ihm fürchtet, ist sein messerscharfer Verstand. Und der sorgt auch dafür, dass der Leser bei Poirots spektakulärsten Fällen ausser Atem gerät...

Jay McLean - Kick, ​Push and Coast
A ​short story post Kick, Push & Coast. Told from Tommy Warden’s ten-year-old mind.

Jennifer E. Smith - Umwege ​zum Glück
Ein ​Jahr ist es her, dass Ellie und Graham sich per Zufall kennengelernt haben. Ein einziger kleiner Tippfehler hat sie zusammengebracht und sie haben sich Hals über Kopf ineinander verliebt. Aber seither ist viel passiert. Ellie ist an der Uni und Graham dreht weiterhin Filme. Emails schreiben sie sich schon lange nicht mehr. Doch dann unternimmt Ellie einen Ausflug nach New York, wo just an dem Wochenende Grahams neuer Film Premiere hat und die beiden treffen völlig unvermutet noch einmal aufeinander …

Kötter Tamás - Nem ​kijárat
Kötter ​Tamás írásait vagy szeretik, vagy gyűlölik. Nem ismerek olyat, aki közömbös tudna maradni iránta. Akik szeretik, azért szeretik, mert a magyar, végtelenül szexista, kiábrándult, megnyomorított és megnyomorító felső-középosztályról ír. Magukra ismernek. Akik nem szeretik, azért nem szeretik, mert magukra ismernek, és nem tetszik nekik a tükörképük. Férfiak és nők alakjai vonulnak végig ezeken a novellákon, a társadalom nagy törésvonalai mentén, a szerzés és a birtoklás bűvöletében, becsapva a környezetüket és saját magukat is, valami végső rossz felé. Kijárat nincs. (Jászberényi Sándor) A Nem kijárat novellái - akár egy baljós nyomozás egy-egy fejezete - Kiss Zoltán életét legfontosabb leckéiben követik, és egyúttal arra is választ keresnek, hogy a gyermeki szorongás apró hazugságai miként hajszolhatnak gyilkos félelembe egy meglett férfit.

Megan Derr - An ​Admirer

Megan Derr - Kiss ​the Rain

Hidas Judit - Boldogság ​tízezer kilométerre
Novellák ​az önfeláldozó női attitűd hamisságáról. A túlzott megfelelés, a gyengeség és az ártatlanság csapdáiról. Arról a több évezredes hagyományról, amely kényszerítő erővel jelenik meg a mai napig az életünkben. Földesné Feuer Anna keresi a helyét a világban, és hiába van szép otthona, hiába a család által nyújtott biztonság, mégsem boldog. Úgy érzi, hiába küzd, nem sikerül elérnie a céljait. Milyen eszközökkel próbálja megoldani a problémáit? Hogyan hárítja a kudarcait? A sikere az önbizalmán és az önértékelésén múlik, vagy inkább a környezete befolyásolja a döntéseiben? A kudarcok és nehézségek ellenére mégsem a reménytelenség sugárzik a történetből. A regényként is olvasható novellafüzérben megmutatott fájdalmas helyzeteket humorral, öniróniával oldja Hidas Judit. Úgy ábrázolja főszereplője szenvedését, hogy közben képes a nehéz pillanatokon nevetni is. A befejezéssel pedig azt üzeni: igenis érdemes küzdeni, harcolni az álmainkért.

Megan Derr - Midsummer ​Baker
A ​sweet baker with spicy taste... Marcell lives a quiet life, keeping the treats coming in his aunt's bakery. He is well known for his manners, his shy demeanor, and his perfect cinnamon rolls. He's a classic good boy, who has never stepped so much as a toe out of line. The Withers Boys are the town bad boys—faerie half-brothers whose only talents are their green thumbs and an unmatched ability to cause trouble. When they're not causing trouble, it's only because the Sheriff has caught them for the moment. But things are never what they seem in a small town, and it's always the quiet ones...This is Book 4 of the Midsummer series, but can be read without reading the prior books.

Megan Derr - The ​High King's Golden Tongue
Prince ​Allen has trained his entire life to follow in the footsteps of his illustrious mother, who has made their kingdom one of the wealthiest and most influential in the empire. For the past few years he has trained to become the new consort of the High King. The only thing no one prepared him for was the stubborn, arrogant High King himself, who declares Allen useless and throws him out of court. High King Sarrica is ruling an empire at war, and that war will grow exponentially worse if his carefully laid plans do not come to fruition. He's overwhelmed and needs help, as much as he hates to admit it, but it must be someone like his late consort: a soldier, someone who understands war, who is not unfamiliar with or afraid of the harsher elements of rule. What he doesn't need is the delicate, pretty little politician foisted on him right as everything goes wrong.

Megan Derr - The ​Stable Boy

Juan José Millás - Los ​objetos nos llaman
Lo ​misterioso acecha a la vuelta de la esquina, en el interior de uno mismo. Mujeres grandes que sueñan con hombres diminutos. Maniquíes que sudan. Pollos que llegan desde el mercado a casa, pero que jamás aparecen en la mesa. Mentiras que se convierten en realidades inexplicables. Cerillas viejas que iluminan habitaciones antiguas. Pequeños malentendidos que dan lugar a preguntas fundamentales. Delirios sensatos. Corduras delirantes… Bienvenido al mundo de Juan José Millás. Si puedes dejar de leer un segundo para prepararte un café, ese café quedará contaminado por la lectura de Los objetos nos llaman. Será un café especial, único, un café inolvidable, porque estará preparado por uno de sus personajes. Este libro, ese café y tú os habréis convertido en un relato. Prueba. No se puede leer a Millás sin que algo, a nuestro alrededor, cambie, sin que la realidad cotidiana nos asombre. Millás ejerce en este libro como un maestro de la distancia corta. Cada uno de estos cuentos, breves como un fogonazo, ilumina un secreto, revela un misterio, provoca una pregunta. Todos, bajo esa escritura precisa y veloz, esconden una sorpresa. Inimitable mezcla de humor, de pánico, de ironía, en esa atmósfera entre realista y onírica que caracteriza la escritura de Millás.

Michael Cunningham - A ​Wild Swan and Other Tales
A ​poisoned apple and a monkey’s paw with the power to change fate; a girl whose extraordinarily long hair causes catastrophe; a man with one human arm and one swan’s wing; and a house constructed of gumdrops and gingerbread. In A Wild Swan and Other Tales, the people and the talismans of lands far, far away―the mythic figures of our childhoods and the source of so much of our wonder―are transformed by Michael Cunningham into stories of sublime revelation. Here are the moments that our fairy tales forgot or deliberately concealed: the years after a spell is broken, the rapturous instant of a miracle unexpectedly realized, or the fate of a prince only half cured of a curse. Reimagined by one of the most gifted storytellers of his generation, and exquisitely illustrated by Yuko Shimizu, rarely have our bedtime stories been this dark, this perverse, or this true.

Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio - El ​escudo de Jotán
Las ​ocho piezas reunidas en este volumen constituyen la práctica totalidad de la narrativa breve de Rafael Sánchez Ferlosio, excepción hecha de unos pocos relatos primerizos que el autor nunca ha consentido volver a publicar. No se incluyen aquí fragmentos ni pecios, sino únicamente relatos, fábulas y cuentos propiamente dichos, escritos a lo largo de más de medio siglo. Si los primeros se hallan en la estela de El Jarama, los más recientes establecen sutiles y a veces sorprendentes conexiones con los intereses y las obsesiones del Ferlosio ensayista, haciendo patente la genuina condición de narrador que late en todos sus escritos y que, a despecho de su parquedad como fabulador, lo ha consagrado como uno de los autores indispensables de la literatura española.
