The mermaids in this book are sea creatures from the depths of the Mariana Trench, and they do not want to be a part of your world. They just want to eat the ship full of scientists that have come to their territory seeking answers. Mira Grant masterfully brings to life (and, in many cases, death) a diverse cast of scientists and mermaids in this extremely well-researched, science fiction/horror take on mermaids. Read if you want to be terrified of the sea forever.

Prepare to have every fantasy trope you know turned on its head. Elliot Schafer goes to school in the magical Borderlands and questions everything from his sexuality to the status quo. He's a pacifist in a culture that glorifies violence, and he's ready to change the world before he graduates. This is a hilarious story about friendship, growing up, and what one can do if they're smart, determined, and just a little bit obnoxious.

Every ninety years, 12 humans are granted the powers of a god and the fame of a pop star, but only for two years, and then they die. Lucifer is accused of murder, but she might be innocent. It's up to fangirl Laura Wilson and skeptical reporter Cassandra Igarashi to find out the truth. Mystery, romance, humor, great art, poor life choices, this series has it all. It's a wild ride from start to finish, and I couldn't put it down.

Every Heart a Doorway

We've all read the fairy tales... a young child goes through a wardrobe or falls down a rabbit hole and shows up somewhere else. Seanan McGuire asks the question: what comes next? How does this incredibly diverse group used to living in magical worlds cope with being forced back into the mundane one? And then, of course, people start dying. With McGuire's signature brilliant worldbuilding and beautiful writing, this might be my new favorite book.
