Robert Ludlum - The Parsifal Mosaic
Michael Havelock's world died on a moonlit beach on the Costa Brava. He watched as his partner and lover, Jenna Karats, double agent, was efficiently gunned down by his own agency. There was nothing left for him but to quit the game, get out. Until, in one frantic moment on a crowded railroad platform in Rome, Havelock saw his Jenna alive. From then on, he was marked for death by both U.S. and Russian assassins, racing around the globe after his beautiful betrayer, trapped in a massive mosaic of treachery created by a top-level mole with the world in his fist—Parsifal.
Sebastian Faulks - Birdsong
In 1910 a young Englishman, Stephen Wraysford, goes to Picardy, France, to learn the textile business. While there he plunges into a love affair with the young wife of his host, a passion so imperative and consuming that it changes him forever. Several years later, with the outbreak of World War I, he finds himself again in the fields of Picardy, this time as a soldier on the Western Front. A strange, occasionally bitter man, Stephen is possessed of an inexplicable will to survive. He struggles through the hideously bloody battles of the Marne, Verdun, and the Somme (in the last named, thirty thousand British soldiers were killed in the first half hour alone), camps for weeks at a time in the verminous trenches, and hunkers in underground tunnels as he watches many of the companions he has grown to love perish. In spite of everything, Stephen manages to find hope and meaning in the blasted world he inhabits. Sixty years after war's end, his granddaughter discovers, and keeps, Stephen's promise to a dying man. Sebastian Faulks brings the anguish of love and war to vivid life, and leaves the reader's mind pulsating with images that are graphic and unforgettable.

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.

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…
Mark Twain - The Adventures of Tom Sawyer
An idyllic snapshot of a boy's childhood along the banks of the Mississippi River, Twain's The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is the author's work that comes closest to his boyhood experiences of growing up in Hannibal in the 1840s. Mischievous and full of energy, Tom enjoys childish pranks and pastimes with his friends, Huck Finn, the town outcast and Joe Harper, his best friend. However, at the town graveyard, Huck and Tom witness a murder, carried out by local vagabond Injun Joe. They vow never to tell a soul about what they have seen and so begins their journey into adulthood as Tom wrestles with his own morality, guilt and anxiety. A 'coming of age' tale, it is through Tom's adventures and relationships with others that he becomes more responsible and more aware of his own inner conflict. Through the central characters of Tom and Huck, Twain satirises the moral rigidity of society and adult hypocrisy, whilst at the same time giving a nostalgic portrayal of a young boy's journey into adulthood.

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.

Ismeretlen szerző - Csitt! Egy fehér lovat hallok közeledni / Hark! I Hear a White Horse Coming
Hark! I hear a white horse coming Csitt! Egy fehér lovat hallok közeledni - sokáig "ismeretlen szerzőnek" tulajdonítottuk az idézetet, mígnem ráleltünk a forrásra: a harmincas évek nagy sikerű, Lone Ranger (Magányos lovas) című westernhangjáték-sorozatában hangzott el, és bizony a szerző nem poénnak szánta, hanem bakizott. Szerencsére, hiszen ezzel az aprócska abszurdummal egy műfaj hangulatának állított örök emléket, azontúl, hogy megnevettette a rádióhallgatókat. A fehér lovon kívül szerepelnek még a könyvben kutyák, madarak, detektívek, teniszjátékosok, istenek, félistenek és istennők, részegek és józanok, orvosok és betegek, hárpiák, királyok, korrupt politikusok, űrhajósok, ünnepelt sztárok... hát igen, egy idézeteskönyv stábja végeláthatatlan.
John Steinbeck - East of Eden

Here Steinbeck created some of his most memorable characters and explored his most enduring themes: the mystery of indentity; the inexplicability of love, and the murderous consequences of love's absence.
