Nagaru Tanigawa - The Intrigues of Haruhi Suzumiya
It’s a new year, and Haruhi Suzumiya, the powerful (and pushy) leader of the SOS Brigade is actually…content. For once, she’s not seeking out time-traveling exploits, murder mysteries, or any other wild adventures that could lead to the destruction of the universe. Surprisingly, it’s Kyon, the most normal member of the SOS Brigade, who wants to shake things up. When Kyon discovers that something’s not right with the universe, it’s up to him, his pal (and secret crush) Mikuru, and the beautiful but stoic Nagato to head back to the past in order to save the future.
Nagaru Tanigawa - The Rampage of Haruhi Suzumiya
Stunning, brash, and completely clueless about her powers, Haruhi Suzumiya can make anything bend to her will. Although she doesn’t know it, she’s a goddess who has the ability to destroy the world…don’t make her mad! Luckily, she has her SOS Brigade — a club comprised of her high school’s most extraordinary students — to keep her happy. This fifth volume in the wildly fun and unpredictable Haruhi Suzumiya series features three short stories for Haruhi’s every mood: an endless summer, an overheated competition with the computer club, and a ski trip getaway in a dangerous blizzard!
Nagaru Tanigawa - The Boredom of Haruhi Suzumiya
Haruhi is the bossy and beautiful leader of the SOS Brigade, a club comprised of her high school’s most extraordinary (and strangest) students.

This third volume in the Haruhi Suzumiya series features a collection of four wildly unpredictable and fun short stories that cover everything from baseball and time travel to alternate dimensions. It even includes an intriguing murder mystery — when it comes to Haruhi, you never know what you’re going to get!
Nagaru Tanigawa - The Sigh of Haruhi Suzumiya
Gorgeous, confident, and demanding, Haruhi Suzumiya is the leader of the SOS Brigade, a club comprised of her high school’s most extraordinary students. So when Haruhi is bored, it’s up to the SOS Brigade to do something about it. In this sequel to the clever and uniquely witty The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya, the SOS Brigade goes along with Haruhi’s scheme to make a movie for the school’s upcoming cultural festival. But when filming begins, strange things start to happen, and Haruhi — who has no idea she’s a goddess with the ability to destroy the world — starts to show her devastating powers. Could the end be near? Or is it just another day at high school? You never know when Haruhi is involved!

Arriving in the town of Lenos, Lawrence and Holo take a respite from their travels north — but a true businessman never rests! It isn’t long before an opportunity for profit presents itself to Lawrence, one that could fulfill his dreams of owning his own establishment.

Soon after their arrival, though, the companions are caught up in a local dispute between Tereo and the neighboring town of Enberch that could cost Lawrence and Holo both their fortunes and their lives! With the Wisewolf’s help, can Lawrence devise a way to save an entire town from ruin — and his skin and that of his traveling companion in the process?
Isuna Hasekura - Spice & Wolf 3
Having narrowly escaped financial ruin, Lawrence turns his attention to helping Holo find her ancient homeland in the North. But how long can a traveling merchant afford to wander the countryside looking for a village that he suspects may have ceased to exist long ago? When a rival merchant sets his sights on Lawrence’s beautiful companion, though, can Lawrence truly be confident that Holo will remain by his side? Has the time come when Lawrence must ask himself whether his relationship with the Wisewolf is business or pleasure?
Isuna Hasekura - Spice & Wolf 2
Following his good fortune in Pazzio, Lawrence is confident that he is on the path to realizing his dream of becoming a town merchant. One ill-informed business decision, though, leaves him teetering on the brink of bankruptcy and ruin! With no assets to his name — other than the cunning of his fetching traveling companion, Holo the Wisewolf — Lawrence may need to resort to illicit means to put his affairs in order. With all of the merchant’s plans hinging on one beautiful young shepherdess — for whose vocation Holo holds no affection — Lawrence’s prospects, both personal and professional, are looking grim!
Isuna Hasekura - Spice & Wolf 1
The life of a traveling merchant is a lonely one, a fact with which Kraft Lawrence is well acquainted. Wandering from town to town with just his horse, cart, and whatever wares have come his way, the peddler has pretty well settled into his routine — that is, until the night Lawrence finds a wolf goddess asleep in his cart. Taking the form of a fetching girl with wolf ears and a tail, Holo has wearied of tending to harvests in the countryside and strikes up a bargain with the merchant to lend him the cunning of “Holo the Wisewolf” to increase his profits in exchange for taking her along on his travels. What kind of businessman could turn down such an offer? Lawrence soon learns, though, that having an ancient goddess as a traveling companion can be a bit of a mixed blessing. Will this wolf girl turn out to be too wild to tame?

Jennifer L. Armentrout - Obsidian
Starting over sucks. When we moved to West Virginia right before my senior year, I’d pretty much resigned myself to thick accents, outhouses, dodgy internet access, and a whole lot of boring. Until I spotted my hot neighbor with his looming height and eerie green eyes. Things were looking up. And then he opened his mouth. Daemon is infuriating. Arrogant. Stab-worthy. We do not get along. At all. But when a stranger attacks me and Daemon literally freezes time with a wave of his hand, well, something…unexpected happens. The hot alien living next door marked me. You heard me. Alien. Turns out Daemon and his sister have a galaxy of enemies wanting to steal their abilities, and the mark he left on me has me lit up like Las Vegas strip to the bad guys. The only way I'm getting out of this alive is by sticking close to Daemon until my alien mojo fades. If I don't kill him first, that is. And then things got really bad…

Hideyuki Kikuchi - Saiko Takaki - D, a vámpírvadász 2.
Tepes álmos kis falva felett egy ősi, romba dőlt építmény magasodik, melyet egykoron a Nemesség emelt. Egy nap négy falusi gyerek téved a várromhoz, akik nyomtalanul eltűnnek, majd pár héttel később rejtélyes körülmények között újra felbukkannak. Azonban a négy gyerekből csak három jön vissza, ráadásul semmire sem emlékeznek abból, ami velük történt. Tíz évvel később új vámpírfaj jelenik meg, amely, úgy tűnik, nappal is tud vadászni. Mivel elvesztették a nappali fény nyújtotta menedéket, pánik és tömeghisztéria tör ki a városka lakói között, ami zavargásokat és lincshangulatot idéz elő. A zűrzavar közepette egy titokzatos vámpírvadászt hívnak a faluba, akit csak „D” néven ismernek. Vajon meg tudja-e fejteni az élőhalottak újonnan keletkezett képességeinek rejtélyét, és felfedi-e, milyen kapcsolat fűzi az eltűnt gyerekeket az ódon romokhoz? Hideyuki Kikuchi története, a D, a vámpírvadász, melyet Saiko Takaki adaptált képregénynyé, vérfagyasztó horror, szörnyetegekkel és mutánsokkal, amelyeket csak antihősünk sajátos, hatékony szörnyirtó módszerei képesek megfékezni. Takaki mesterien illusztrált portréja Kikuchi félig ember, félig vámpír szörnyvadászáról a horror és a fantasztikum határán egyensúlyoz. D, a vámpírvadász egyedi hangvételű kalandjai minden eddiginél messzebbre tolják a valóság határait, és merőben újszerű világba kalauzolják az olvasót.

Az egyetlen, aki képes felvenni a harcot a fenyegetéssel, maga is nagy erejű, veszélyes lény: D, a magányos és titokzatos vámpírvadász. D találkozik a kétségbeesett Doris Langgel, akit megharapott Lee gróf, a vámpír nagyúr. Doris szörnyű sorsra kárhoztatott… Vajon meg tudja-e szabadítani D az átoktól, és a lány megmenekül, vagy ő is egyike lesz az öröklétre ítélt élőholtaknak?
