What could be better than a Christmas-time scavenger hunt in New York City? When Lily's parents leave her and her brother alone for Christmas, she is devastated, and in an effort to cheer her up, her brother encourages her to leave a journal in a book at the Strand, prompting a back and forth scavenger hunt around the city. When Dash, with a Scrooge-like attitude toward Christmas, picks up the journal, it sets off a series of adventures all over the city that makes me laugh and warms my heart every time. I read this one every year, and I promise it will make you Christmas season brighter.

This is a story of passion- passion for life, for one's work, and for other people. Zara is in NYC to star in a Greek tragedy as the tragic romantic lead opposite a heart-throb movie star. But as she sinks deeper into the theatre, Zara realizes she may drown in its madness. Add a murder, a forceful director, a girl who shines brighter than her lighting designs, and sentences so beautiful you'll be dog-earring pages, and the result is nothing short of extraordinary.

If you love the movie and you haven't read the book, buy it. If you haven't seen the movie, buy the book, read it and then see the movie. If you have read the book and love the movie, then buy it and give it to someone else who has not yet been initiated. If you've never heard of The Princess Bride . . . well, that's just inconceivable.

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.

This unconventionally structured and intense YA thriller will appeal to fans of Gone Girl and other dark, female- centric mysteries. The story centers on queer romance, jealousy tangled up in friendship and class and race differences between teen girls at two different high schools in a small Massachusetts town. The unconventional shift in narration halfway through both allows for a more factual and removed look at the mystery and signals to the audience that Jess has lost control of her own story. One of the most artfully written YA books of the year, and a mystery sure to suck in both older teen and adult readers, this is one not to be missed.
