Magay Tamás - Országh László - Magyar-angol ​kéziszótár
Az ​általánosan használatos Országh-féle angol-magyar kéziszótár (legutóbb: 200008158) lényegében 1959 óta változatlan formában jelent meg, eljárt tehát fölötte az idő. Jelentős szemléleti változások mentek végbe társadalmunkban az elmúlt évtizedek alatt, változtak a nyelvhasználati és idegennyelv-tanulási szokásaink, következésképp újfajta igények támadtak a középméretű szótár iránt is. Ezért volt szükség Magay Tamás közreműködésével - a szótár anyagának fölfrissítésére és jelentős átalakítására. Ennek eredményeként a korábbi változathoz képest több ezer adattal gyarapodott a kéziszótár anyaga. Nemcsak a címszavak száma nőtt, hanem a közölt jelentésváltozatok árnyaltsága is gazdagodott, továbbá a használati példák, a grammatikai alkalmazás jelölései ugyancsak megújultak a mai igényekhez alkalmazkodóan. A Függelék tartalmazza a rendhagyó igéket és főneveket, valamint az angol mértékegységek táblázatát. - Fontos kézikönyv.

E. L. James - Fifty ​Shades Darker
Daunted ​by the singular sexual tastes and dark secrets of the beautiful, tormented young entrepreneur Christian Grey, Anastasia Steele has broken off their relationship to start a new career with a Seattle publishing house. But desire for Christian still dominates her every waking thought, and when he proposes a new arrangement, Anastasia cannot resist. They rekindle their searing sensual affair, and Anastasia learns more about the harrowing past of her damaged, driven and demanding Fifty Shades. While Christian wrestles with his inner demons, Anastasia must confront the anger and envy of the women who came before her, and make the most important decision of her life.

E. L. James - Fifty ​Shades Freed
When ​unworldly student Ana Steele first encountered the driven, damaged young entrepreneur Christian Grey it sparked a sensual affair that changed both their lives irrevocably. Shocked, intrigued, and ultimately repelled by Christian’s singular sexual tastes, Ana demanded a deeper commitment; determined to keep her, Christian agreed. Now, together, they have more – love, passion, intimacy, and a world of infinite possibilities. But Ana always knew that loving her Fifty Shades would not be easy, and being together poses challenges neither of them ever anticipated. Ana must somehow learn to share Christian’s opulent lifestyle without sacrificing her own integrity, identity or independence; Christian must somehow overcome his compulsion to control, and lay to rest the horrors that blighted his past and haunt his present. Just when it seems that together their love can conquer any obstacle, misfortune, malice and fate combine to make Ana’s worst nightmares come true. Alone and desperate, she must face down the poisoned legacy of Christian’s past. Seductive, shocking, sad and funny, Fifty Shades Freed is the compelling final volume in the Fifty Shades trilogy.

P. C. Cast - Kristin Cast - Marked
The ​House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed. In this first book in the series, Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire--that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do. It's tough to begin a new life, away from her parents and friends, and on top of that, Zoey finds she is no average fledgling. She has been Marked as special by the vampyre Goddess, Nyx. But she is not the only fledgling at the House of Night with special powers. When she discovers that the leader of the Dark Daughters, the school's most elite club, is misusing her Goddess-given gifts, Zoey must look deep within herself for the courage to embrace her destiny--with a little help from her new vampyre friends.

Roald Dahl - Boszorkányok
Az ​IGAZI BOSZORKÁNYOK hétköznapi ruhát hordanak, és szakasztott úgy néznek ki, mint a hétköznapi nők. Hétköznapi házakban élnek, és RENDES ÁLLÁSUK van. Ezért is olyan nehéz őket nyakon csípni. Egy IGAZI BOSZORKÁNY olyan utálkozó utálattal utálja a gyerekeket, hogy olyan utálkozó utálatot elképzelni sem tudsz. Egy IGAZI BOSZORKÁNY folyton-folyvást terveket sző, hogy megszabaduljon a felségterületén lakó gyerekektől. Az a szenvedély élteti, hogy egymás után sorra elbánjon velük. Egész álló nap csak ezen jár az esze. Ez a könyv nem mese. Ez a könyv IGAZI BOSZORKÁNYOKRÓL szól, akik a legveszélyesebb élőlények a föld kerekén. Ráadásul attól lesznek kétszeresen veszélyesek, hogy nem látszanak veszélyesnek. Ezért is mesél el Nagymama az unokájának mindent, amit hosszú élete során sikerült a boszorkányokról kinyomoznia. Pedig akkor még nem is sejti, milyen veszedelmes kalandba keveredik a fiú hamarosan, amikor egy szállodában váratlanul az angliai Boszorkányok Titkos Társaságának éves ülésén találja magát…

Veronica Roth - Insurgent

But every choice has consequences, and as unrest surges in the factions all around her, Tris Prior must continue trying to save those she loves—and herself—while grappling with haunting questions of grief and forgiveness, identity and loyalty, politics and love. Tris's initiation day should have been marked by celebration and victory with her chosen faction; instead, the day ended with unspeakable horrors. War now looms as conflict between the factions and their ideologies grows. And in times of war, sides must be chosen, secrets will emerge, and choices will become even more irrevocable—and even more powerful. Transformed by her own decisions but also by haunting grief and guilt, radical new discoveries, and shifting relationships, Tris must fully embrace her Divergence, even if she does not know what she may lose by doing so.

Terry Goodkind - Faith ​of the Fallen
Bestselling ​New York Times author Terry Goodkind revisits his gripping Sword of Truth books with the eagerly anticipated Faith of the Fallen. In the sixth installment of this beloved series, Richard Rahl and Kahlan Amnell struggle against threats to the freedom of the world, testing both their endurance and their love for one another. As his beloved Kahlan lies close to death, Richard -- who distrusts prophecy more than anyone -- is confronted by a compelling vision that bears a terrible price: taking Kahlan away from the protection of the army he leads, and abandoning his people to a grim fate. Kahlan, left behind and unwilling to abandon the cause of the Midlands, violates prophecy and breaks her last pledge to Richard. Finally, she will come face to face with the architect of the terror sweeping her land: the mad dreamwalker, Emperor Jagang, who is poised to unleash his formidable fury on the New World. Meanwhile, in Emperor Jagang's sprawling encampment, Nicci, a Sister of the Dark, is tormented by her memory of Richard yet is captivated by the inexplicable strength that she saw in this gaze. Despite her hunger to understand the source of his indomitable will, her burning passion to destroy him commits her to the unthinkable and draws her into a haunting, epic conflict. This latest compelling installment in the Sword of Truth series showcases Richard and Kahlan's further struggles against the relentless, monolithic forces of the Imperial Order, resulting in Goodkind's most captivating novel yet.

Walter Isaacson - Steve ​Jobs
Based ​on more than forty interviews with Jobs conducted over two years—as well as interviews with more than a hundred family members, friends, adversaries, competitors, and colleagues—Walter Isaacson has written a riveting story of the roller-coaster life and searingly intense personality of a creative entrepreneur whose passion for perfection and ferocious drive revolutionized six industries: personal computers, animated movies, music, phones, tablet computing, and digital publishing. At a time when America is seeking ways to sustain its innovative edge, and when societies around the world are trying to build digital-age economies, Jobs stands as the ultimate icon of inventiveness and applied imagination. He knew that the best way to create value in the twenty-first century was to connect creativity with technology. He built a company where leaps of the imagination were combined with remarkable feats of engineering. Although Jobs cooperated with this book, he asked for no control over what was written nor even the right to read it before it was published. He put nothing off-limits. He encouraged the people he knew to speak honestly. And Jobs speaks candidly, sometimes brutally so, about the people he worked with and competed against. His friends, foes, and colleagues provide an unvarnished view of the passions, perfectionism, obsessions, artistry, devilry, and compulsion for control that shaped his approach to business and the innovative products that resulted. Driven by demons, Jobs could drive those around him to fury and despair. But his personality and products were interrelated, just as Apple’s hardware and software tended to be, as if part of an integrated system. His tale is instructive and cautionary, filled with lessons about innovation, character, leadership, and values.

Gillian Flynn - Gone ​Girl
Marriage ​can be a real killer. One of the most critically acclaimed suspense writers of our time, New York Times bestseller Gillian Flynn takes that statement to its darkest place in this unputdownable masterpiece about a marriage gone terribly, terribly wrong. The Chicago Tribune proclaimed that her work “draws you in and keeps you reading with the force of a pure but nasty addiction.” Gone Girl’s toxic mix of sharp-edged wit and deliciously chilling prose creates a nerve-fraying thriller that confounds you at every turn. On a warm summer morning in North Carthage, Missouri, it is Nick and Amy Dunne’s fifth wedding anniversary. Presents are being wrapped and reservations are being made when Nick’s clever and beautiful wife disappears from their rented McMansion on the Mississippi River. Husband-of-the-Year Nick isn’t doing himself any favors with cringe-worthy daydreams about the slope and shape of his wife’s head, but passages from Amy's diary reveal the alpha-girl perfectionist could have put anyone dangerously on edge. Under mounting pressure from the police and the media—as well as Amy’s fiercely doting parents—the town golden boy parades an endless series of lies, deceits, and inappropriate behavior. Nick is oddly evasive, and he’s definitely bitter—but is he really a killer? As the cops close in, every couple in town is soon wondering how well they know the one that they love. With his twin sister, Margo, at his side, Nick stands by his innocence. Trouble is, if Nick didn’t do it, where is that beautiful wife? And what was in that silvery gift box hidden in the back of her bedroom closet? With her razor-sharp writing and trademark psychological insight, Gillian Flynn delivers a fast-paced, devilishly dark, and ingeniously plotted thriller that confirms her status as one of the hottest writers around.

Tess Gerritsen - The ​Bone Garden
Unknown ​bones, untold secrets, and unsolved crimes from the distant past cast ominous shadows on the present in the dazzling new thriller from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen. Present day: Julia Hamill has made a horrifying discovery on the grounds of her new home in rural Massachusetts: a skull buried in the rocky soil-human, female, and, according to the trained eye of Boston medical examiner Maura Isles, scarred with the unmistakable marks of murder. But whoever this nameless woman was, and whatever befell her, is knowledge lost to another time... Boston, 1830: In order to pay for his education, Norris Marshall, a talented but penniless student at Boston Medical College has joined the ranks of local "resurrectionists" - those who plunder graveyards and harvest the dead for sale on the black market. Yet even this ghoulish commerce pales beside the shocking murder of a nurse found mutilated on the university hospital grounds. And when a distinguished doctor meets the same grisly fate, Norris finds that trafficking in the illicit cadaver trade has made him a prime suspect. To prove his innocence, Norris must track down the only witness to have glimpsed the killer: Rose Connolly, a beautiful seamstress from the Boston slums who fears she may be the next victim. Joined by a sardonic, keenly intelligent young man named Oliver Wendell Holmes, Norris and Rose comb the city - from its grim cemeteries and autopsy suites to its glittering mansions and centers of Brahmin power - on the trail of a maniacal fiend who lurks where least expected . . . and who waits for his next lethal opportunity. With unflagging suspense and pitch-perfect period detail, The Bone Garden deftly interweaves the thrilling narratives of its nineteenth- and twenty-first century protagonists, tracing the dark mystery at its heart across time and place to a finale as ingeniously conceived as it is shocking. Bold, bloody, and brilliant, this is Tess Gerritsen's finest achievement to date.

Ljudmila Ulickaja - A ​mi Urunk népe
Az ​Európa-szerte népszerű orosz írónő nem tesz mást A mi Urunk népében, csak mesél és mesél a végtelenségig, megunhatatlanul. Mindenről és mindenkiről van egy jó története: legyen szó önbizalom híján álló vagy bármit eltűrő nőkről, az apaság rejtelmeiről, őrangyalokról. Különösen érzékeny a csodákra, a kivételes eseményekre, ám ezeket is – például egy némának hitt gyerek szavait, az állatoknak tartott szentmisét vagy a beteljesülni látszó jóslatokat – úgy tárja elénk, mintha a világ legtermészetesebb dolgairól beszélne. Hiszen amennyire a különleges jelenségekben, legalább annyira otthon van a hétköznapokban. Novellaformában is könnyedén, finoman mutat be szépet és rútat, egy-egy összetettebb szereplőt vagy bonyolultabb szituációt. Nem meglepő ez, hiszen írói érzékenységét a nagy orosz realistáktól örökölte. Rendkívül sokat tud a legfontosabb dolgokról: szerelemről, boldogságról, hitről és halálról. Mindezek mögött pedig nagy-nagy bölcsesség áll: kerülni minden szélsőséget, elfogadni egymást, felülvizsgálni az előítéleteinket az emberben mélyen megbúvó belső hang és az igazságérzet nevében. LJUDMILA ULICKAJA az egyik legnépszerűbb kortárs orosz író, számos jelentős orosz és nemzetközi díj (többek között az orosz Booker-, az orosz Nagy Könyv-, a Grinzane Cavour-díj) kitüntetettje. Könyveiből – tizennégy kötete jelent meg eddig – Oroszországban több mint kétmillió példány kelt el. Három mesekönyv és hat színmű szerzője. Moszkvában él. LJUDMILA ULICKAJA művei a Magvető Kiadónál: Médea és gyermekei (2003) Életművésznők (2004) Vidám temetés (2005) Szonyecska (2006) Odaadó hívetek, Surik (2007) Kukockij esetei (2008) Daniel Stein, tolmács (2009) Történetek állatokról és emberekről (2009) Elsők és utolsók (2010) Imágó (2011) Történetek gyerekekről és felnőttekről (2012)

And as the lives of the four women intertwine, each in her own way is learning about love, letting go--and that finding your way can lead to the last place you expected.
