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.

Khaled Hosseini - The Kite Runner
Twelve-year-old Amir is desperate to win the approval of his father and resolves to win the local kite-fighting tournament, to prove that he has the makings of a man. His loyal friend Hassan promises to help him - for he always helps Amir - but this is 1970s Afghanistan and Hassan is merely a low-caste servant who is jeered at in the street, although Amir still feels jealous of his natural courage and the place he holds in his father's heart. But neither of the boys could foresee what would happen to Hassan on the afternoon of the tournament, which was to shatter their lives. After the Russians invade and the family is forced to flee to America, Amir realises that one day he must return, to find the one thing that his new world cannot grant him: redemption.

J. K. Rowling - Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows
Harry has been burdened with a dark, dangerous and seemingly impossible task: that of locating and destroying Voldemort's remaining Horcruxes. Never has Harry felt so alone, or faced a future so full of shadows. But Harry must somehow find within himself the strength to complete the task he has been given. He must leave the warmth, safety and companionship of The Burrow and follow without fear or hesitation the inexorable path laid out for him… In this final, seventh instalment of the Harry Potter series, J.K. Rowling unveils in spectacular fashion the answers to the many questions that have been so eagerly awaited. The spellbinding, richly woven narrative, which plunges, twists and turns at a breathtaking pace, confirms the author as a mistress of storytelling, whose books will be read, reread and read again.
George R. R. Martin - A Clash of Kings
The second novel of Martin's titanic Song of Ice and Fire saga (A Game of Thrones, 1996) begins with Princess Arya Stark fleeing her dead father's capital of King's Landing, disguised as a boy. It ends with the princess, now known as Weasel, having led the liberation of the accursed castle of Harrenhal. In between, her actions map the further course of a truly epic fantasy set in a world bedecked with 8000 years of history, beset by an imminent winter that will last 10 years and bedazzled by swords and spells wielded to devastating effect by the scrupulous and unscrupulous alike. Standout characters besides Arya include Queen Cersei, so lacking in morals that she becomes almost pitiable; the queen's brother, the relentlessly ingenious dwarf Tyrion Lannister; and Arya's brother, Prince Brandon, crippled except when he runs with the wolves in his dreams. The novel is notable particularly for the lived-in quality of its world, created through abundant detail that dramatically increases narrative length even as it aids suspension of disbelief; for the comparatively modest role of magic (although with one ambitious young woman raising a trio of dragons, that may change in future volumes); and for its magnificent action-filled climax, an amphibious assault on King's Landing, now ruled by the evil Queen Cersei. Martin may not rival Tolkien or Robert Jordan, but he ranks with such accomplished medievalists of fantasy as Poul Anderson and Gordon Dickson. Here, he provides a banquet for fantasy lovers with large appetites?and this is only the second course of a repast with no end in sight. Author tour.
George R. R. Martin - A Storm of Swords: Blood and Gold
Reissued for September 2011 in B format. Split into two books for the paperback, the third volume in George R.R. Martin's superb and highly acclaimed epic fantasy A Song of Ice and Fire continues the richest, most exotic and mesmerising saga since The Lord of the Rings. The Seven Kingdoms are divided by revolt and blood feud, and winter approaches like an angry beast. Beyond the Northern borders, wildlings leave their villages to gather in the ice and stone wasteland of the Frostfangs. From there, the renegade Brother Mance Rayder will lead them South towards the Wall. Robb Stark wears his new-forged crown in the Kingdom of the North, but his defences are ranged against attack from the South, the land of House Stark's enemies the Lannisters. His sisters are trapped there, dead or likely yet to die, at the whim of the Lannister boy-king Joffrey or his depraved mother Cersei, regent of the Iron Throne. And Daenerys Stormborn will return to the land of her birth to avenge the murder of her father, the last Dragon King on the Iron Throne.

F. Scott Fitzgerald - The Great Gatsby
The exemplary novel of the Jazz Age, F. Scott Fitzgeralds' third book, The Great Gatsby (1925), stands as the supreme achievement of his career. T. S. Eliot read it three times and saw it as the "first step" American fiction had taken since Henry James; H. L. Mencken praised "the charm and beauty of the writing," as well as Fitzgerald's sharp social sense; and Thomas Wolfe hailed it as Fitzgerald's "best work" thus far. The story of the fabulously wealthy Jay Gatsby and his love for the beautiful Daisy Buchanan, of lavish parties on Long Island at a time when, The New York Times remarked, "gin was the national drink and sex the national obsession," it is an exquisitely crafted tale of America in the 1920s that resonates with the power of myth. A novel of lyrical beauty yet brutal realism, of magic, romance, and mysticism, The Great Gatsby is one of the great classics of twentieth-century literature.

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.

But despite what they have learned, they break into pieces under the first bombardment in the trenches.

Kimura Rei - Japán rózsa
Japán a második világháborúban. A festői kis faluban, Macumotóban élő két fiatal lány, Szajuri és Reiko elindul a háború sújtotta Tokióba, hogy megtalálják egyikük vőlegényét. Otthoni környezetükből kiszakadva munkát vállalnak egy kórházban, ahol szembesülnek a háború valódi arcával: Szajuri öccsét csapatszállító hajójával együtt elsüllyeszti egy amerikai tengeralattjáró, míg barátnője vőlegényét összeroncsolt testtel, haldokolva látja viszont a kórházban. Amikor barátnőjét is megöli egy amerikai bomba, Szajuri bosszút esküszik: férfinak álcázva magát kamikáze pilótának áll. A végső bevetésen azonban kudarcot vall s ellentétben kiképző tisztjével – aki egyben a szerelme is - túléli az akciót, sőt arra is fény derül, hogy tudatosan megtévesztette a császári hadsereget. A duplán szégyenteljes esemény eltusolása érdekében a katonai bürokrácia úgy határoz, hogy el kell tűnnie még a nyilvántartásokból is. Új nevet kap, száműzik vidékre… itt talál rá napjaink egy szemfüles újságírónője, akinek ha nehezen is, de lassanként megnyílik a „japán rózsa”. Kimura Rei regényében izgalmas csatáknak lehetünk tanúi, ám ezek az összeütközések egyben a japán társadalmi hagyományoknak és egy modern világnak az emberekben zajló konfliktusai, melyeket – úgy tűnik – az amerikai bombázók sem tudtak szétzúzni. A történet szerkezete is erre utal: ide-oda ugrál a múlt és a jelen között, miközben felsejlik előttünk egy mai ésszel felfoghatatlan kasztrendszer, ahol a nők a legteljesebb alárendeltségben éltek. Szajuri története amolyan japán „haza és szerelem” eposz, melyben a legősibb túlélési ösztönök, egyfajta szellemi emelkedettség és egy fájdalmas, lemondásokkal terhelt gyönyörű szerelem képét rajzolja elénk a szerző.
Elizabeth Gilbert - Committed
At the end of her bestselling memoir Eat, Pray, Love, Elizabeth Gilbert fell in love with Felipe, a Brazilian-born man of Australian citizenship who'd been living in Indonesia when they met. Resettling in America, the couple swore eternal fidelity to each other, but also swore to never, ever, under any circumstances get legally married. (Both were survivors of previous horrific divorces. Enough said.) But providence intervened one day in the form of the United States government, which - after unexpectedly detaining Felipe at an American border crossing - gave the couple a choice: they could either get married, or Felipe would never be allowed to enter the country again. Having been effectively sentenced to wed, Gilbert tackled her fears of marriage by delving into this topic completely, trying with all her might to discover through historical research, interviews, and much personal reflection what this stubbornly enduring old institution actually is. Told with Gilbert's trademark wit, intelligence and compassion, Committed attempts to 'turn on all the lights' when it comes to matrimony, frankly examining questions of compatibility, infatuation, fidelity, family tradition, social expectations, divorce risks and humbling responsibilities. Gilbert's memoir is ultimately a clear-eyed celebration of love with all the complexity and consequence that real love, in the real world, actually entails.

Born into the family battle, their son Paul Morel initially takes his mother's part, until in adolescence he meets and falls in love with a young girl, Miriam, and discovers a new conflict of loyalties.

Roald Dahl - Boszorkányok
Gyerekmesékben a boszorkányok mindig fura, fekete kalapot és fekete köpönyeget viselnek, valamint seprűnyélen lovagolnak. Ez azonban nem egy gyerekmese, itt most az igazi boszorkányokról lesz szó. A legfontosabb dolog, amit az igazi boszorkányokról tudni kell, a következő. Nagyon figyeljetek, és sose felejtsétek el, amit most mondok. Az igazi boszorkányok hétköznapi ruhákat hordanak, és nagyon hasonlítanak a hétköznapi nőkhöz. Hétköznapi házakban élnek, és hétköznapi állásuk van. Ezért olyan nehéz nyakon csípni őket. Roald Dahl a Meghökkentő mesék írójaként vált közismertté, de Nagy-Britanniában és világszerte gyerekkönyveivel lett igazán népszerű. Ezek a könyvek azonban nemcsak a gyerekek számára, hanem a felnőtteknek is jó szórakozást nyújtanak. Lebilincselő történeteit mesterien szövi át humorral, bájjal és bölcsességgel, de a meghökkentő fordulatok itt sem maradhatnak el. Roald Dahl-t Nagy-Britannia legnépszerűbb szerzőjének választották meg, Boszorkányok című könyve 1983-ban pedig elnyerte a Whitbread-díjat, mely elismrés a legjobb kortárs brit szerzőt illeti meg.

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.
